"Lord Nathaniel Harte, the disagreeable Duke of Beswick, spends his days smashing porcelain, antagonizing his servants, and snarling at anyone who gets too close. With a ruined face like his, it's hard to like much about the world. Especially smart-mouthed harpies--with lips better suited to kissing than speaking--who brave his castle with indecent proposals. But Lady Astrid Everleigh will stop at nothing to see her younger sister safe from a notorious scoundrel, even if it means offering herself up on a silver platter to the forbidding Beast of Beswick himself. And by offer, she means what no highborn lady of sound and sensible mind would ever dream of--a tender of marriage with her as his bride."--Page 4 of cover… (mere)

I will happily give this ridiculous book 5 stars because I spent the 24 hours I was reading it practically giddy with amusement. It is none of the things I normally love in a book. It is not well-researched or historically accurate. It is filled with idioms and phrases that didn't appear in the English language until long after these characters would have been in their graves. But it won me over, dragging me away from initial annoyance, with genuinely likable characters and some pretty good sex scenes. I read it almost without stopping and I'm sure I'll read it again because it was fun, really fun.

The Beast of Beswick by Amalie Howard

Historical romance with the premise loosely taken from the fairytale. Everleigh Sisters series book 1.
Astrid goes to the Duke of Beswick with a proposal to save her sister from a scoundrel.
High society drama and manipulation ensue.

Astrid is quite vocal about the rights, or lack thereof, for women in the time period. She is strong and courageous and will do anything for her sister. Astrid is also clever and unlikely to take no for an answer without having a backup plan. I loved her cunning and fortitude. And her compassion and spunk.
And while the Duke wouldn’t want us to feel sorry for him, he’s really a hero. Both at heart and actuality. That his servants love and look out for him, is telling.

Charming and entertaining. Amusing and sensitive. And sexy too. I don’t read a lot of historical romance so was pleasantly surprised by the heroine progressive attitudes. ( )

From start to end, the scandalously naughty Meg (my spirit animal) made this novel an instant hit and her encounters with Lucien and how easily she made him submit to her seductive ways were thus far my favorite scenes throughout my read . It had everything you're looking for: historical elements, tempting heroine, brooding hero and a whirlwind (more like instant love) romance that will surely knock you off your feet. I had this down in one sitting and it definitely felt a lot shorter than 200 pages. Nevertheless, a quick and easy read that any reader can find enjoyable.

A beautiful retelling! The Beast of Beswick is a new take on a tale as old as time, featuring a delightfully crude duke and an impassioned, independent lady who refuses to take no for an answer. It's hard not to be inspired by the love and loyalty Astrid exhibits as she fights to keep her younger sister, beauteous and innocent Isobel, from the dastardly clutches of the same earl who had smeared her name during her first Season several years before. Although rough around the edges, Nathaniel "Thane" Harte is more than he seems and even his damaged body and often foul temper won't dissuade Astrid from winning him over and looking beyond his "beastly" appearance.

The Beast of Beswick gives readers a glimpse into the world of the ton and introduces several strong female characters who seek to move beyond the constraints of their stations. Astrid and Duchess Mabel, Thane's eccentric aunt, are wonderful examples of female empowerment and the latter provides more than her fair share of comedic moments bolstered by her unapologetic lust for life (and other things). Thane and Astrid's strong personalities create a riveting push and pull relationship that keeps the reader invested and their passion is off the charts! I can't wait to see Isobel's own temerity take center stage in The Rakehell of Roth. ( )

The Beast of Beswick was such a fantastic book here and boy I was hooked on this story. This is the first book in her Everleigh Sisters Series. I just love a great Beauty and Beast retelling and this one takes the CAKE. Its always refreshing to find a new author to love and I really had such a blast with this one. She is one of those that really pulls you into a story and honestly it was the heart of the characters that really tugged at my emotions for this one.

What this book begins with is our heroine is very protective of her sister but they are orphans and their uncle is their guardian at least until Lady Astrid turns 26 which she is just a handful of months short of. But when her younger sister is about to be forced into a marriage that caused much pain and grief for Astrid she knows that she needs to come up with a plan to save her and so she goes to the formidable and scarred Duke of Beswick. Nathaniel Harte fought in the war and came back heavily scarred and keeps to his estate and terrorizes his servants and his hobby is shattering priceless artifacts of his father whom he despises. But the moment Astrid comes to him with a plan, he is not ready for this formidable and courageous young woman who stands her ground and isn’t fearful of his scars. They come to an agreement, Astrid will catalog his father’s artifacts for an auction and he will let Astrid and her sister stay in his home while they hide from her uncle until she comes into her inheritance and they can’t be touched. But plans don’t always go the way you expect and a fierce love builds between Beswick and Astrid, but will Astrid lose her sister in the process? And will their love be worth fighting for?

The Beast of Beswick was such a powerful story that sweeps you away into this historical world of danger, villains and secret desires. We have such a great relationship that we see between Astrid and her sister, we see a fun yet passionate romance build between Beswick and Astrid and some unique plot formatting especially toward the end that kept me on the edge of my seat. I honestly was on tinderhooks through most of this story and highly impressed with the few shocks along the way. I am so EAGER for Isobel’s story. Because her character is what really surprised me the most. Through most of the story we see her character be so shy and timid, but we see her true strength come out in the love she has for her sister and crafting her own future on her own terms and I have a feeling her book will pack a powerful punch.

you need to decide whether you let your scars rule you.

The romance that forms between Astrid and Beswick was so fascinating, Astrid is such a strong heroine, ballsy and very set in her own ways. She knows herself and has that confidence and surety that pulls Beswick’s attention. There is such powerful chemistry that builds between them that is gravitating in a unique way. They both contain very strong personalities but we see how they really balance each other in various ways. I loved seeing them get past their hurdles and realize their love for each other and fight for it!!

An empowering love story that will take you on an adventure of laughs, endearing characters and fascianting plot points to keep the reader engaged until the very end!! Truly Empowering! ( )
