A woman who doesn't back away from his surliness-or his scars. But just as he begins to believe in true love, Helen's secret past threatens to tear them apart. Now both Beast and Beauty must fight for the one thing neither believed they could ever find-a happy ever after.

The Romance Reader's Cathy Sova reviews To Beguile a Beast by Elizabeth Hoyt

I really enjoyed this book. Alistair and Helen are imperfect people who find that they are exactly right for one another, and the author stays true to her premise. Alistair is scarred, and Helen was the mistress of a Duke; there are no last-minute machinations to sugarcoat any of that. But it makes the story stronger, in a way, because the characters are realistic. And because these two are flawed, when they do eventually fall into bed, readers will be rooting for them to find joy in each other, which they do. (read more)
