    Miss Linnet Berry Thrynne is a Beauty... Naturally, she's betrothed to a Beast. Piers Yelverton, Earl of Marchant, lives in a castle in Wales where, it is rumored, his bad temper flays everyone he crosses. And rumor also has it that a wound has left the earl immune to the charms of any woman. Linnet is not just any woman. She is more than merely lovely: her wit and charm brought a prince to his knees. She estimates the earl will fall madly in love - in just two weeks. She is more than merely lovely: her wit and charm brought a prince to his knees.

    Story

    Beauty and the Beast captured my attention because it is still my all time favorite story - and this book delivered in every way. James does a great job of moving the plot along while developing the characters in such a way that you fall in love! There are so many ho-hum audio books out there that I want to express my humble opinion that this one is definitely worth it - IF you are a true believer in Beauty and the Beast.

    April 1831, her grace Corinne Monroe wants her widowed son, Lord Julian, to marry her best friend’s daughter, Miss Sophie Wilkie. Julian last saw Sophie when she was twelve years old, silent, skinny, and always staring at him. However, his mother is nothing if not persuasive, and Julian reluctantly accompanies her to London to meet the young lady. And he knows that whatever happens isn’t going to be good. Lord Devlin Monroe, Julian’s nephew, is very fond of his intriguing reputation in society: he delights, he frightens, he brings on delicious shudders. He’s enjoying a pleasant bachelor life....

    Story

    I have been reading Cathering Coulter's books for many years and fell in love with her characters and story plots - but as hard as I tried, this one never ever engaged at all on any level. I really encourage you to read her early historical romances - but do not waste a credit or your time on this one. I saw the bad review and decided to give it a chance because of her past books - I am sorry that I did.

    History has all but forgotten.... In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next best-selling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write. But then she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction....

    Martha says: "Get Out Your Hankies"
    "Great book if you LOVE history."
    Overall

    I downloaded this book based on the reviews comparing this to a Diana Gabaldon book - it is actually a kinder, gentler version of her books. Kearsley does a good job of making history come alive with all the human elements- but if you do not enjoy history, this is not for you. On the other hand, if you do enjoy history and a good story, enjoy.
