  • A bit of a Beauty and the Beast retelling

    Dear and brightest lights of heaven. I don’t quite know what to say about this book, because I’m still giggling over it. Now, giggling is not my usual reaction to regency romance, but it’s the only option open to me at the end of this book. Izzy is so much fun. She’s spunky and determined and still so idealistic in spite of everything her life has become. Ransom is everything a proper gothic hero should be: dark, moody, brooding, emotionally and physically scarred. He is that ultimate male that we females want to ‘fix’. (Light of heaven! I hate that sentiment, but it plays well in this book.) The story is a bit of a Beauty and the Beast retelling. The biggest differences being that the beauty and beastliness are mostly internal rather than the outward appearance. For the beauty doesn’t believe she’s the least bit attractive and the beast doesn’t realize that his appearance isn’t so monstrous. I would dearly love for there to have been more of this book. I wasn’t ready to let these characters go at the end.

  • I need to read more by Tessa Dare!

    I’ve been reading the occasional romance book over the past year or so, trying to find ones that I like, and Tessa Dare is an author who was frequently recommended to me. I’ve generally enjoyed the historical / regency romances I’ve read, and this book in particular was recommended to me on Litsy. Eventually, I started reading it, and I wish I’d read it sooner! This book was so fun and sweet. I loved the story, and felt for Izzy immediately. She was broke, alone, and had nowhere to go – until she inherited a mysterious castle. But things are not what they seem, with the castle or the duke who refuses to leave. Part of what I loved about this book so much was Izzy. She was funny, clever, and tenacious. And in a way, this book is about stories and writing, and I really enjoyed that aspect. I don’t want to say too much and risk spoilers, but I loved the way the plot about Izzy’s late father’s stories unfolded. The romance was very swoony, and I was pleasantly surprised by the reveals and character development of Ransom (the duke). I think I was still holding on to some preconceived ideas about romance books, and Romancing the Duke showed me that I was wrong. I enjoyed this book and will definitely be reading more by Tessa Dare!

  • Fun and funny

    I liked this book. It is just the kind of lighthearted historical Romance the cover promises, which is what I was looking for. But in addition to that, it also made me laugh at points, as I really liked some of the descriptions and dialogue. If you're looking for a novel that steps outside the bounds of historical Romance, this is not your book. But if you're looking for a fun read, with some lines in there that'll make you grin and characters that are fun and funny, this should suit you fine :)

    Thanks for your feedback!
