To be very honest, I thought at first glance that this was a paranormal romance, only to find out it is a Historical Romance. It was only my second read in this genre and I absolutely loved this book.
I was so pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed Beauty Tempts the Beast. I read it last night in one sitting and I just wanted more in the end. A story of trauma, heroism, tragedy, hate, envy and love.

This book was my third ever erotica read. I wasn't sure that I'd like it, as I haven't liked the genre in the past, but decided to try it anyway as part of my Beauty and the Beast spree.

Started off really weird with too many unknowns that were supposed to keep you interested. I'm not a fan of questions being asked until the end when the answers come out. If I wanted that I would be reading mysteries, not romances.
So the story starts with Vivian Suttley at Lord Charles Ashworth's front door to answer his mothers advertisement to marry him. She's running from her abusive husband to be, whom her father gave her too. Knowing if she's caught, Martin will kill her, she seeks ...more

Those were my major quibbles. I liked the suspense, the overall story, and the fact that there were multiple antagonists, and thought the resolution was satisfying.
