Review of WHEN BEAUTY TAMED THE BEAST

WHEN BEAUTY TAMED THE BEAST
Eloisa James
Avon, February 2011
ISBN:  978-1-61129-188-9

Miss Lynnette Berry is seeped in scandal after a flirtation with a prince goes awry, and it is bandied about that she is expecting.  Desperate to see her settled, Lynnette's father and aunt decide to contact the Duke of Windebanke, who is equally as desperate to see his son settled.  Because Piers Yelverton, the Earl of Marchant and the Duke of Windebanke's son, is a crippled, bad-tempered, doctor, who lives in a castle in Wales, he is known as the beast by London society.  Lynnette, who is a beauty and used to entrancing men with her looks, may be in for a surprise, when she meets the beast.

WHEN BEAUTY TAMED THE BEAST is a wonderful historical romance with great characters and amusing dialogue.  Piers is a truly great hero, warts and all.  I loved his bad temper and snarky comments.  Piers is a brilliant doctor, who doesn't suffer fools lightly.  When confronted with Lynnette, Piers sees past her beauty to discover the determined, intelligent woman underneath.  I love the fact, that Piers sees past Lynnette's stratagems and isn't bowled over by her famous male-enticing smile.  Lynette, on the other hand, isn't just a beauty, for she is well-read and able to hold her own with Piers.  These two, flawed, but endearing characters are perfect for each other, and their romance is very satisfying.

NOTE:  I own this book and gave an impartial review.

Review of SHADOW CAT: A STRIPED ONES NOVEL

SHADOW CAT:  A STRIPED ONES NOVEL
Reena Jacobs

Ericson Randall, the CEO of Nora Tech Pharmaceuticals, needs for the scientific expedition to the rainforest of Malayasia to go without a hitch, because his position in the company may depend on it.  Unfortunately, the researchers are thrown out of the country after destroying a section of rainforest.  When his assisstant, Bryan Hayes, suggests that Eric journey with him to Malaysia, Eric sees a way out of a sticky situation at home and a way to straighten out his Malaysian problems.

Berani, a tiger shifter, dislikes the intruders in her forest, but when she spies Eric, Berani is fascinated.  Eric is, also, drawn to Berani.  When Eric gets too close, Berani reacts by scratching him.  Leading to a tumultuous courtship.  Meanwhile, some evil beings pose a danger to Berani's people and the researchers.

Wow!  I loved this book.  Ms. Jacobs creates an imaginative, complex world filled with interesting, multi-faceted characters.  The imagery is vivid and this reader soon became engrossed in the story.  Ericson, who only lives for his business, soon, realizes there is more to life after meeting Berani.  Berani, who tries to help her people, learns she doesn't have to do everything by herself.  Interwoven throughout the book is the message of conservation, which really struck a chord with me.  There are, also, some vicious creatures, which threaten everything, that Berani and Ericson hold dear.  The ending is wonderfully exciting, and action-packed, and I have my fingers crossed, that Ms. Jacobs writes another book set in this spectacular world.

NOTE:  I received this copy in return for an impartial review.
