When Beauty Tamed the Beast - Eloisa James

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.
Yet Linnet has no idea of the danger posed to her own heart by a man who may never love her in return.
If she decides to be very wicked indeed . . . what price will she pay for taming his wild heart?

Uma 'bela' com a lìngua afiada e muito pouco a perder, um 'monstro' mal disposto e genial, personagens secundárias à altura, uma piscina natural de água do mar, bem gelada, e uma mortífera epidemia de escarlatina, preenchem de forma coerente um livro de leitura fluida, agradável e, em momentos, bastante divertida. Simpático para ler nestas noites de inverno frias, embrulhada num cobertor, cansada mas animada, à espera do inevitável fim feliz.
