When Beauty Tamed The Beast

When Beauty Tamed the Beast (Fairy Tales, #2)When Beauty Tamed the Beast by Eloisa James

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So far this is my favorite of my recently purchased books. I love Linnet and Piers – the barbs, the intelligence, and how they grow to care about each other. I love that Piers was inspired by House from the tv show and I really enjoyed how she translated him to the time period. I loved the character of Linnet and the misunderstanding that set up the entire book made me laugh. The book made me laugh and made me almost cry and I will most definitely be reading it again.

The Duke is Mine

The Duke Is Mine (Happily Ever Afters, #3)The Duke Is Mine by Eloisa James

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I thought this book was very amusing at times and was also sad in places. Olivia and her sister Georgiana spent their entire lives being trained to be duchesses due to a betrothal arranged before any of the three were born. Olivia, who is 7 minutes older than her twin, is the affianced, and while her intended Rupert is away at war (but safely out of action) she and her sister attend a party to hopefully find Georgie a husband. Throw in scientists, hijinks, a crazy mom, hormones, a daring rescue and true love and you have an excellent fast paced story with an almost completely happy ending. This is part of James’ Fairy Tale series and is based loosely on The Princess and the Pea (though the prospective mother in law runs tests that do not involve a pea). While I like the previous book When Beauty Tamed the Beast better, I really did enjoy this book and most certainly will be reading it again.
