A Beauty-ful story,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: When Beauty Tamed The Beast: Number 2 in series (Fairy Tales) (Kindle Edition)
As a fan of Eloisa James, having read her Desperate Duchess series (and loving them!) I had great expectations for this book, and it managed to fufil all of them.
Retelling such a well know story as Beauty and the Beast can be risky as it is hard to keep to the general story lines while making it yours enough, but Eloisa James managed it. Both her characters were warm funny and extremely loveable. There was several background stories which only added to the readers enjoyment of the romance between Peirs and Linnet. Piers' transformation from the hard hearted beast he is at the beginning to (not to give anything away) how he is at the end of the book, is truely magical, and the message that its whats inside that counts was well shown in the very moving ending.
I would recomend this book to anyone with a love of historical romance and fairy tales. You will enjoy it!
