When Beauty Tamed the Beast by Eloisa James

When Beauty Tamed the Beast is about a girl Linnet Berry Thrynne whose reputation is in tatters.  The whole of London is convinced she not only allowed her prince to take liberties, but that they’ve resulted in her carrying his child.  It isn’t true, ofcorse but in order to make the best of a situation Linnet’s aunt comes up with the idea to offer her to Piers Yelverton, Earl of Marchant.  Rumor has it that he’s in the market for a wife.  However when she arrives at her future fiancée’s home, she comes to realize that the Earl is different from all the other nobles she’d met.

I really liked this book.  I grabbed it thinking that it would be a neat retelling of the Beauty and the Beast story, but that really only touches on a little of the story.  The Earl is blatantly based off of House M.D.  In fact the author admits to it in the back of the book.  I just couldn’t get over that I was reading House in the 17th century, and she made him yummy to read to boot!

It was a really enjoyable read!  Even knowing that the Earl was basically borrowed, throwing his character into the seventeenth century was intriguing, and Eloisa has a knack for making you feel, I mean  really feel what the characters are going through.  I know I’m reading a good book when I’m emotional in my real life, sitting on the edge of my seat, or I can’t help but cry cause the characters are going through a painful experience, and Eloisa made me do just that!  Would he make it in time?  Can he save her? What if he doesn’t?  She’ll have never known how he really felt!  It was great and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves Romance, or the show House M.D.
