4 out of 5 (2 ratings)


If only Miss Lisle Berry Thynne's gown hadn't been so fully cut, or she hadn't been caught kissing that prince ...But now the ton believes Lisle to be with royal child - and therefore unmarriageable - so she might as well make her desperate father happy by consenting to wed a beast. A brilliant surgeon with a reputation for losing his temper - and a wound believed to have left him ...incapable - Piers, Earl of Montague, should welcome a bride-to-be carrying a ready-made, blue-blooded heir.

But Piers isn't fooled by the lady's subterfuge, and though Lisle's devilishly smart and charming with a loveliness that outshines the sun, there will be no wedding of beauty to beast. Still, Lisle finds the gorgeous brute intriguing, with a spark of gentility behind his growl that's worth fanning. And it's obvious to the naked eye that 'incapable' does not mean 'uninterested' ...

A fun reworking of the Beauty and the Beast tale set in Regency Britain which, as the author notes, is partially inspired by <i>House</i>. Passed the time nicely.

Miss Linnet Berry Thrynne had been caught kissing a prince, and now her reputation is in tatters, she is thought to be with child from the prince and now she is unmarriageable. Her father finds her an out, believing her to be pregnant, a match with a man reputed to be a bit of a brute and believed to be incapable of bearing children.And she meets him, he has a limp, a bad temper and a hospital in his house but she finds him interesting and he finds that he can't around her or make her go away as easily as he can most people.The two of them spark well off each other and when she gets ill he really shines and comes to realise what she means to him. I also did get the House references fairly early on, to which James admits in the afterword and it did make me smile. I enjoyed the read.
