    Awesome love story

    I haven't ever read a book by this author before, but when I received an offer to read the Beast of Beswick for a review, I accepted. I'm glad I did. Thane was the spare son of a duke. He went off to war but was badly injured when another soldier, who was supposed to be on guard, deserted and their camp was attacked. Thane sacrificed himself to try to save his men. He was literally cut to ribbons by the enemies' swords. He barely survived but he now wishes that he was dead. The ton, as well as most others are horrified to be around him but the feeling is mutual. When Thane's father dies and his brother is killed in an accident, Thane becomes the duke. Astrid and her younger sister were orphaned when their parents died. An uncle and his wife wound up as their guardians but squandered every peny of the fortune their parents had left for their care. The only money left is their trusts, which their uncle cannot touch. But that doesn't mean that he doesn't have a scheme to get it. Years later, Astrid is forced to offer herself in marriage to Thane in an effort to save her sister. Their uncle has offered her 16 year old sister to Edmund Cain, the man that Astrid was previously engaged to. Adtrid had broken the engagement and Cain smeared Astrid. Her sister is a way for Cain to get back at Astrid and gain her sister's fortune in the process. Turns out Cain is the deserter that caused the deaths of Thane's men as well as his disfigurement. This is a great story of love and how it can triumph. I really enjoyed this book and plan to read others by this author.

    Absolute masterpiece

    I think I have stumbled across a magnificent author. Amalie Howard has written a beautiful and powerful Regency romance with a hero who is scarred from the inside out. This isn’t just a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Howard steps into deeper issues in this story- examining the treatment of women and the disabled in Britain in the early 1800’s. I thought she did an amazing job of character development. Each person just comes to life, leaping off the page with energy and vulnerability. “Astrid blushed, but his mouth sought hers again, and she pushed herself up on tiptoe to meet him, greedy for more of the sensations bursting like wildfire inside. When he licked deep, ribbons of pleasure unraveled in her veins, making her gasp against his mouth. She clutched at him, at those broad shoulders, winding urgent fingers into fabric and slanting her mouth on his, desperate to match the delicious, decadent flex of his tongue.” There are a number of steamy sex scenes. I am looking forward to reading more from Ms. Howard.

    Doesn't live up to it's potential

    Beauty and the Beast is my favorite fairytale because it is the one where the couple's love doesn't happen at first sight. I am always interested in reading an author's take on the classic tale and how they see the couple coming together. I read several glowing recommendations for this book and was excited to give it a try. Unfortunately, my only thought as I closed the book was, "What a waste of potential."

    Amazing

    Thane is one beastly grumpy alpha man. Astrid is one strong sexy smart woman. They make for an interesting fun couple. There connection and chemistry is off the charts. Could not wait to see where the story would go. Loved Thane and Astrid. Will read more from this author.

    Had me enraptured from the start

    Who can resist a beauty and the beast story? Certainly not this reader. Yet another fantastic book has been added to my 2019 favorite books list. "She blinked, an outrageous idea blossoming. It would solve everything. It was a dreadful, desperate plan, but it was something. It was a chance. At five and twenty, she was well on the shelf, but she wasn’t dead. She might be ruined in the eyes of the ton, but she had a sound brain, she’d been raised to run an aristocratic household, and she was the daughter of a viscount. It could work. It could work. She would just have to marry a different kind of beast than the earl to save her sister. And she knew just the man." The beautiful and headstrong Lady Astrid Everleigh is desperate to save her sister from the same ruin she encountered 10 years ago. Astrid's last-ditch effort is to ask the formidable and scarred Beast of Beswick, Lord Thane Harte, to marry her so he can approve or deny anyone who asks for her sister's hand in marriage, but his answer is unexpected. Wow! I adore the robust and provocative repartee between Astrid and Thane. They both have been censured in society which has left them vulnerable and alone, but as a couple, they could conquer anything if they would only open their hearts. Astrid's ability to match Thane's rath and ardor is fascinating to read and the love scenes will leave you breathless. I have two favorite supporting characters, Aunt Mabel and Fletcher. Thane's feisty Aunt Mabel is another feminist before her time, has an active sex life of her own, and lovingly embroiders phalluses as a hobby. Thane's valet, Fletcher, is a cunning and quick-witted servant who always has his Grace's best interests in mind. This historical romance had me enraptured from the start and I declare I am a new fan of Ms. Amalie Howard and can't wait to read more of her books.  Recommend highly! Thank you to Ms. Howard for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
