My first pick for historicals is a gimme. Which means it is a super easy pick for me. I reviewed a novel entitled To Beguile a Beast, which reminded me of Beauty and the Beast with a more adult theme to it. With just a peek at her bio, we get to see how humorous Elizabeth Hoyt really is. As part of the Legend of the Four Soldiers Series, it was still possible for me to read it as a standalone. In fact, even though I have not read any other books from this series, I can guarantee I will be doing just that. You can check out her bio as well as all of her other fantastic books she has available through her website:

And now for my fourth paragraph which I hope will entice you to want to read more from this very lovely and talented author:

To Beguile a Beast is an amazing novel, and I fell in love with both main characters; Ms. Hoyt did an exceptional job and though it is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. Alistair is shown as a tortured soul who struggles daily with his looks, trying to get people to accept him but not expecting it. Helen shocked me because in the beginning, I had a hard time liking her as she made comments about her role as an absentee mother, but after a while she definitely grew on me and her truly lovely soul showed through. This tale is a remake of the Beauty and the Beast story that we know and love with a couple of added twists, and I found myself just as enraptured with this novel as the fairytale. An extraordinarily touching and noteworthy read, this tale shows us that beauty may only be in the eye of the beholder and real beauty is more than skin-deep.

Caution: This tale contains sensual wording, some vulgar sex talk, and is a red-hot romance!
