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!!!

By Veronique February 12, 2020

Entertaining historical romance featuring strong characters, mixing comedy with drama. The trope of 'Beauty and the Beast' has been used ad nauseam but Howard succeeds here in creating one of the better ones, combining aspects from ‘The Taming of the Shrew’. It works very well, our main characters v ...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 hours ...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 genius.

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

The issue with re-tellings is that a book can seem like you have already read it before. Especially if it's in the same time period and names are so similar. I could swear I have already read this one years ago, nevertheless I enjoyed it with all my heart.

There one thing that bothered me though... T ...more

My first book by the author and I’m already very impressed.

The Beast of Beswick is definitely the hottest, most sensual and emotional book I’ve read so far this year. And, although we are only in second week of February, I have a feeling this one will uphold its title.

I loved this book so much! ...more

Good. I’ve always liked the beauty and the beast story/plot. This isn’t as good as Tessa Dare’s The Duchess Deal, but it could be because that book is funny and I read it first. This is well done and I enjoyed both characters. ...more
