Synopsis

“Eloisa James’s writing is absolutely exquisite.”
New York Times bestselling author Teresa Medeiros

 

“Nothing gets me to a bookstore faster than a new novel by Eloisa James.”

New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn

 

A wonderful spin on a much-beloved fairy tale, Eloisa James’s When Beauty Tamed the Beast is heart-soaring and fun historical romance at its finest. No wonder People magazine raves about her books, saying, “Romance writing does not get much better than this.” Eloisa’s delightful take on Beauty and the Beast unfolds in Regency England, where a beastly, bad-tempered Earl matches wits with a brazen beauty who has vowed to make the handsome grump fall in love with her in two short weeks.

Reviewed by Laura on Nov 18 2011

There were nods to the fairy tale, there were nods to the norms of historical fiction. None of these nods got in the way of the story or (more important in a romance) the characters. The characters were entertaining, and both had more to them than a quick glance would see.
