“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.
FAVOURITE BOOK OF ALL TIME
Reading this for the sixth time and I am still captivated by it. Still succeeds to be a page-turner! I love Eloisa James and her writing style! Love the way she gives the perspectives of all the main characters. But When Beauty Tamed the Beast is my absolute favourite novel of all time! I wish there was a sequel! I wish there was a movie!
Love the sexually descriptive scenes, but there's a 'but'
A sappy story and too heavy for my liking or at least what I've come to like in Eloise James's books. BUT the male protagonist's character is roundly developed. He is also smart, caring (as in he really showed how much he loved the female protagonist), has depth, and is in great shape - love a swimmer's body. He made me think o Ryan Lochte or Michael Phelps's physiques!
The idea was pretty well thought, but it's too sexually descriptive...Too bad, cause it couldn't have been simply amazing!
