To Beguile A Beast by Elizabeth Hoyt

To Beguile A Beast (The Legend of the Four Soldiers, #3)

Synopsis

CAN A WOUNDED BEAST . . .
Reclusive Sir Alistair Munroe has hidden in his castle ever since returning from the Colonies, scarred inside and out. But when a mysterious beauty arrives at his door, the passions he’s kept suppressed for years begin to awaken.
TRUST A BEAUTY WITH A PAST . . .
Running from past mistakes has taken legendary beauty Helen Fitzwilliam from the luxury of the ton to a crumbling Scottish castle . . . and a job as a housekeeper. Yet Helen is determined to start a new life and she won’t let dust-or a beast of a man-scare her away.
TO TAME HIS MOST SECRET DESIRES?
Beneath Helen’s beautiful façade, Alistair finds a courageous and sensual woman. A woman who doesn’t back away from his surliness-or his scars. But just as he begins to believe in true love, Helen’s secret past threatens to tear them apart. Now both Beast and Beauty must fight for the one thing neither believed they could ever find-a happy ever after.

My thoughts: I’d never read a Historical Romance novel before To Beguile A Beast. The only preconceived notion I had before reading the book was that of possible “bodice ripper”. What I found was an entertaining, albeit steamy, fairy tale/romance. Is that redundant?? This book is part of the Legend of the Four Soldiers series. I’ll no doubt be reading the previous installments. If you’re a fan of the genre, I recommend To Beguile A Beast.
