‘Nothing gets me to a bookstore faster than Eloisa James’ – Julia Quinn

Miss Linnet Berry Thrynne is a Beauty . . . Naturally, she’s betrothed to a Beast.

If only her gown hadn’t been so fully cut, or she hadn’t been caught kissing that prince . . . But now the ton believes Linnet to be with royal child – and therefore unmarriageable – so she might as well make her desperate father happy by consenting to wed a beast.

A brilliant surgeon with a reputation for losing his temper – and a wound believed to have left him . . . incapable – Piers, Earl of Montague, should welcome a bride-to-be carrying a ready-made, blue-blooded heir. But Piers isn’t fooled by the lady’s subterfuge, and though Linnet’s devilishly smart and charming with a loveliness that outshines the sun, there will be no wedding of beauty to beast.

Still, Linnet finds the gorgeous brute intriguing, with a spark of gentility behind his growl that’s worth fanning. And it’s obvious to the naked eye that ‘incapable’ does not mean ‘uninterested’…

‘Eloisa James is extraordinary’ – Lisa Kleypas

Julia Quinn, <i> New York Times </i> bestselling author

Bookpage
Treat yourself to a fairy tale that will keep you enchanted from 'once upon a time' til 'they lived happily ever after'
The Romance Dish on A Kiss At Midnight
[This] delightful tale is as smart, sassy and sexy as any of her other novels, but here James displays her deliciously wicked sense of humor
Romantic Times BOOKClub on A Kiss at Midnight
There are only a handful of romance authors who could have written a touching, fun, and engaging story by blending a fairytale and a television show. Eloisa James is obviously one of them
The New York Journal of Books
A breathtaking addition to James's series of reimagined fairy tales... [A] funny, offbeat, deliciously sensual story that takes the famed fairy tale to a new level with its vivid description and exquisite writing
