The classic tale of Beauty and the Beast…you would think it’s hard to improve upon but James did!
I am a sucker for any fairy tale retelling, and so was still expecting this to be just another typical historical romance. The two main characters are what you expect, a stunningly beautiful young woman and a darkly handsome crippled man who is said to have a beastly personality. What you don't expect is for the beauty to be stuck in such an interesting situation (her being ruined in the eyes of the ton in a very humorous twist) but manages to show some backbone and sassy attitude. As for the beast, another pleasant surprise, that he is more than just a broken man as he is a brilliant doctor with a wicked dry sense of humor! The candor between the beauty and the beast will make you laugh and sigh, and laugh and sigh right through the ending.
This book was a wonderful surprise. If you are in the mood for a sweet romance with great humor check this out.
