Beauty and the Beast meets Taming of the Shrew in this laugh-out-loud and heartfelt Regency romance.

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.

Holy heck! Talk about your grumpy, beastly hero. Thane was perfect!!!

’Though this duke was wholly human as far as she could tell…his eyes burned with an unholy amber fire, holding her in a glower that seemed better suited to hell. Astrid couldn’t control the dread running through her body. His n... ...more

The hero is DARK, badly scarred with a lot of hang ups and does not go out of his way to fit into society. I can’t blame him, the way society is described to... ...more

Thane had never begged for a single thing in his life, but he’d drop to his knees for her in a heartbeat.

I usually hate when a blurb makes a comparison to another book that I adored. Because more often than not, it sets an entirely unrealistic expectation for the book that it never liv... ...more

UPDATED: Read it. ADORED it. Definitely for fans of beauty and the beast without all the problematic parts of the fairy tale. XD

This was such a delightful romance! I had read a couple of favorable reviews for this book so I knew that I wanted to read it and was thrilled to get the chance. I don't read a ton of historical romance but I do tend to enjoy them eve... ...more

Let me tell you why I love The Beast of Beswick. The story opens in the home of Lady Astrid Everleigh’s Aunt and Uncle. Astrid lives here with her sixteen year sister. Her Uncle and Aunt are their legal guardians until the girls marry or come of age. It seems her Uncle has plans to marry her youn... ...more

It has been awhile since I read a historical romance, but after reading the blurb for The Beast of Beswick, I knew I had to read it, and I am so glad got the opportunity to do so. I enjoyed Astrid and Thane’s story. It had all the feels, and it swept me away and kept me reading through the wee ho... ...more

Astrid was a powerhouse of strength, feminism, and holy cow, was she feisty! I loved her wit and mouthiness! She was a also a devoted sibling and would sacrifice whatever necessary to keep her sister safe and her ensuing plan...hair-brained genius.

Thane was a behemoth mass of surliness, mood swi... ...more

I agree, The Duchess Deal meets Taming of the Shrew is the perfect description of The Beast of Beswick.

Lady Astrid Everleigh proposes a desperate bargain with Lord Nathaniel Harte in order to save her younger sister from the same man who ruined her years ago. The Duke of Beswick is horribly scar... ...more

This was a lot of fun. It tread very close to the edge of my personal tolerance for the "we can't be together because you deserve better" device, but. I adore Astrid, Thane was spectacular, and Aunt Mabel is my favorite aunt. ...more

I don’t know where to start or what I loved more. The lovable and snarky main characters? The endearing and eccentric side characters? The author’s clever and captivating writing? The brilliance and incredibleness that is the plot of this novel? Or maybe the heartwarm... ...more

I met Amalie Howard at a book conference earlier this year but hadn't read any of her books until her newest, The Beast of Beswick, hit my Kindle. Oh my gosh, how have I not read this author before? I loved this story! It was everything I hope for in a historical romance with its brooding, scarre... ...more

By Isha November 28, 2019

Who says that there has to be a damsel in distress to make a good romance. In my opinion a good heroine goes against what is expected and makes her own rules. Astrid delivered with her headstrong ways and her fierce heart. The Beast of Beswick is the best of what romance has to offer. Howard deli... ...more

Loved the heroine!

The thing that bothered me was that there was too much pushing away from hero, his constant "you deserve someone better, I am a beast" started to get tiresome. ...more

This book is very far from my usual genres. But the cover caught my attention (I am a sucker for red dresses). Then I read the story and oh my, I had to keep fanning myself. Because this book gets steamy!

Lady Astrid Everleigh's reputation was ruined a decade before by the horrid Earl of Beaumont... ...more

About the author

Award Winning Author

Amalie Howard

Amalie Howard grew up in Trinidad & Tobago where she spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in a book or running around barefoot, shimmying up mango trees, and dreaming of adventure. 25 countries, surfing with sharks, and several tattoos later, she has traded in bungee jumping in China for writing the adventures she imagines instead. She isn’t entirely convinced which takes more guts. An aspiring writer from a young age, Amalie’s poem “The Candle,” written at age twelve, was published by the University of Warwick press. At fifteen, she was a recipient of a Royal Commonwealth Society Essay Award (a global youth writing competition). A Colby College graduate, she completed dual Honors Theses in both French and International Studies, and graduated Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa. At Colby, she was cited for her research contribution to Raffael Scheck’s article, “German Conservatism and Female Political Activism in the Early Weimar Republic,” and his subsequent book, Mothers of the Nation. She also received a distinction in English Literature from the University of Cambridge (A-levels) as well as a postgraduate certificate in French Literature from the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, France. Traveling the globe, she has worked as a research assistant, account executive, and global channel sales director for a Fortune 500 company. She is the award-winning author of several young adult novels critically acclaimed by Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, SLJ, VOYA, and Booklist, including Waterfell, The Almost Girl, and Alpha Goddess, a Spring 2014 Kid’s INDIE NEXT title. Her debut novel, Bloodspell, was a #1 Amazon bestseller, and the sequel, Bloodcraft, was a national silver IPPY medalist and a silver Moonbeam award winner. She is also the co-author of the adult historical romance series, THE LORDS OF ESSEX. As an author of color and a proud supporter of diversity in fiction, her articles on multicultural fiction have appeared in The Portland Book Review and on the popular Diversity in YA blog. She currently resides in Colorado with her husband and three children.
