To Beguile a Beast - Elizabeth Hoyt - 2009

This book was well written and interesting, not really a keeper - but I am curious about the rest of the series. I love that the cover tells you it's Book 3, also, that I wasn't overwhelmed with information about how gloriously happy the previous two couples are. Just the right amount to know the books are connected, but you never feel lost. "To Beguile a Beast" is a classic "Beauty and the Beast" story, but features real flawed characters, giving it more depth and emotional power, plus the children in the book are not adorable imps added to fill space, they are an essential part of this tale.
