    1. Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) on said:

      To Beguile a Beast takes a tried and true romance theme and does it justice In this case, the Beauty is the fugitive mistress of a powerful duke, who takes her children to start a new life, not as a kept woman, but as a legitimate housekeeper The Beast is a naturalist who was tortured by Indians in the colonies, as the result of an ambush against British soldiers The writing flows and compels The romance not only involves Helen and Alistair, but also the bond that develops between Alistair and H [...]

      The Beauty and the Beast theme always captivates me I think the only one I like is a Cinderella story But there s so much to be said for a strong man who lives a tragic life until something beautiful comes along to make him live again I think the metaphor is even important than the ugly pretty trope You shouldn t live only for aesthetic beauty There is so much to a person than their looks And Alistair learns that just because Helen is beautiful doesn t mean that she cares that he is scarredce [...]

    4. Daniella on said:

      Things were going on perfectly until Alistair called the heroine a whore after learning about her past I m sorry, but my heart just broke at that point That was just so disrespectful and nothing in the world could make me forgive him for such cruelty Hello Helen had lain with ONE MAN A MAN THAT SHE LOVED I think that hardly qualifies as whoring God How could you be so cruel, Alistair Isaac from The Ice Princess handled the situation better and gave Coral her due respect FUCK YOU AND YOUR HYPOCRI [...]

      Yet another heart wrenching tale of a tortured literally hero that had me wavering between tears and smiles Elizabeth Hoyt s latest Four Soldiers tale, To Beguile a Beast , was one of the touching and VERY romantic stories I ve read this year My emotions are still careening about but as long as I remember the ending I can still smile.Helen has finally made her escape from the cold and arrogant Duke of Lister After he seduced her as a young girl and she bore him two children, she finally realize [...]

      The third book in the Legend of the Four Soldiers series by Elizabeth Hoyt My favorite of the series so far but I ve really enjoyed them all immensely Just one to go This one has a beauty and the beast theme Alistair, the hero, is not a macho alpha type He s a scarred recluse devoting his life to research and studies Then a lovely woman, Helen, barges into his life to be his housekeeper This is no light fluffy romance which I do love but a heart wrenching and touching romance between two lost s [...]

    8. Rane on said:

      I loved it, it hooked me in and didn t let go until the very last page Although, I was a little disappointed it didn t focus a little on the traitor like the other books and Alistair trauma with living with his scars, it did show him moving on and accepting himself and Helen.

    9. Claudia on said:

      No me ha durado nada Y pensar que lo empec un poco insegura pero me ha encantado, es lo primero que leo de Hoyt y pienso repetir pronto Por cierto que el salvaje no es tal, al contrario, me ha resultado encantador

      To Beguile A Beast by Elizabeth HoytWhen I first read Elizabeth Hoyt s debut novel, The Raven Prince, I was amazed The last time I read a debut novel and thought, Holy Mother, here s a new author I am already addicted to, was the book Warprize by Elizabeth Vaughan If you haven t read it, I highly recommend it The Raven Prince had a preposterous premise for the book, but nevertheless, Hoyt s writing is so fabulous that I truly didn t care I absolutely fell in love with her hero and I use that ter [...]

      4 4.5 stars Great Beauty and the Beast themed historical romance with interesting, flawed characters and a very clever resolution to the suspense element Really, this story was very well done, and the sexytimes were smokin hot As always, I loved Elizabeth Hoyt s trademark fairy tale story that unfolded over the course of the book in the chapter introductions This book is my favorite of the Four Soldiers series thus far.A couple of quibbles kept me from giving it five stars, but that may very wel [...]

      I really loved this book It was nice to get away from your basic mundane romances with the same story lines This was different and refreshing and not at all mainstream The hero and heroine are in their early 30 s No young first time love in this story The hero, Alistair, is scarred, reclusive and a loner Scarred tortured heroes have become quite a popular genre, but many of those heroes have scars that can be covered if needed or even easily overlooked That is not the case with Alistair Munroe H [...]

      I am quite partial to the beauty and the beast themes A scarred and disabled H with a tortured body and soul backstory and I am easily hooked and reeled in.But I was not very keen on a mistress h but she and her story grew on me Her kids were amazing and steal your heart from right under you, especially the daughter Abigail The skirmishes and sex are exciting and hot respectively, as the unwanted housekeeper not only cleans up his dusty castle but lights his long celibate fires as well The damag [...]

      After reading TBAB s preview in the mediocre To Seduce A Sinner , I had sky high hopes, cuz it has all the much loved ingredients heart warming Beauty the Beast theme, a brutally scarred, reclusive, naturalist hero who lives in a gloomy dusty castle, a doggie, kids, Scotland setting, what can a gal ask for Suffice it to say that none of EH s other books have quite lived up to The Raven Prince EH s Gold Standard TBAB is a slow burner, but it fulfills its potential to the fullest has become my fa [...]

      I think the audiobook might be better than the book I adored the sex scenesORY BRIEF Helen has been mistress to a Duke for 14 years and has two children from him She fears he may take her children away, so she flees with the children A friend suggests she become a housekeeper to Alistair in Scotland Alistair was captured and tortured after a battle in the colonies He lost an eye and his face was burned He now lives in seclusion He has no servants to clean and his castle looks like it He doesn t [...]

      Really, really enjoyed this one Mistress stories are intriguing to me, but usually a bit disappointing They always seem to imply that being a long term kept mistress was just a matter of bonking a rich bloke every night, but, as far as I can tell, real history suggests that wasn t the case Being a mistress about this time wasn t necessarily an awful thing to do, and there was a career ladder in which you could work your way up from one protector to another Also, apparently protectors took credit [...]

      Awesome readd a very heartfelt one as well Helen Fitzwilliam was a kept woman But now that her benefactor has thrown her over as well as her two kids, she feels she needs to get awayway away So thanks to the help of a friend she is now on her way to Scotland to become a housekeeper for a man that has no idea she is even coming With a spooky cobwebbed filled moldy old castle Alistar needs one in the worst way Alistair is a man trapped by the scars on his face Burned when he was captured in an amb [...]

      Great writing, without a doubt The lead characters are not my cup of tea The Beauty and the Beast theme is alright I am usually averse to a mother heroine But the book still snatched 3 stars from me That is no small feat Only Elizabeth Hoyt can make me read a book featuring a mother heroine Alistair the hero is the beast I was little shocked that he lashed out at Helen when he realized that she was someone s mistress and had 2 children by him His reaction was a bit hypocritical for me I do howev [...]

      I picked up this book because Elizabeth Hoyt is a prolific writer that I have never read and decided to try In reading the synopsis I thought the book would be about a lady running from danger, taking a job far below her as a housekeeper to keep herself safe What I found in reading was a woman who had spent her life as a wealthy man s mistress, living a pampered life while bearing two illegitimate children When he loses interest in her, she decides to run away with the children and start a new l [...]

      4.5 starts Great book Loved the relationship between Alistair and Helen I felt so sorry for Alistair with his horrible scarring, missing eye and missing fingers And then Helen being able to look beyond all that to the man himself and being physically attracted to him was wonderful I m planning on reading all four the Legends of the Four Soldiers books Would recommend it.

    23. Brittain *The Baddest Female* on said:

      I really do love books like this It was cute but it still delved into some deep issues of self image, public perception, and confidence Just a heart warming story, even with the Ikea style sex sometimes Verymientific.

      No me termino de convencer la relaci n entre los dos, m s que amor era calentura No me gusta que se le dedique tanto tiempo a los pensamientos lujuriosos que tienen para con el otro y que me quieran convencer de que es amor porque no me lo voy a creer No me molesta que el sexo sea una parte importante de la historia, siempre y cuando 1 la tensi n sexual este bien lograda y 2 me gustar a ver que los personajes hicieran otras cosas adem s de tener sexo, momentos que sean tiernos, adorables, me pas [...]

      To Beguile A Beast by Elizabeth Hoyt has to be the most charming historical romance I have read in a long time This author is new to me but not for long I have already ordered her other books in this series and cannot wait to indulge myself in a delicious treat that has no calories YUMM Helen Fitzwilliam is a woman with a mission Having lead her adult life as a Duke s mistress she is bound and determined that she deserves better and will go to most any length to achieve this She also wants so mu [...]

      This is one of my favourite Hoyt s I just re read having read 2 in the series for the first time a couple of days ago It improved on a second reading I love me an injured hero and Munroe fits the dark, brooding, scarred, Scottish bill He s just lovely He opens up to Helen and her children, despite being scared they ll eventually leave He s a bit too good to be true until the very end, when he s a bit of an idiot, but Hoyt obviously felt she needed some last minute drama Then there s Helen I loff [...]

    27. Carrie on said:

      To Beguile a Beast was a very enjoyable take on the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale Hoyt breaks the mold by having the heroine be a runaway mistress of a powerful duke While the reader has sympathy for Helen, and while Helen is sorry for her poor choices, she s also a strong woman who doesn t make excuses for her past I liked her character a great deal.Alistair is a a great character as well Hoyt succeeds in creating a damaged, tortured hero In fact, one of the great strengths of this book is th [...]

      I am always a sucker for a BB theme I enjoyed this one and though the mystery of the Spinner Falls betrayal was definitely in the background I didn t think it took away from the series.
