    "I found myself getting completely lost in this book time and again. It was such a beautiful and dramatic retelling of one of my favorite classics. The author does an amazing job of drawing the reader in and the visual descriptions are at times breathtaking. I think this is an excellent book for a summer book club."

    "Male doctors are of the top 5 most attractive professions for me. Combine that into a romance novel was perfect for me and for those interested in the same things as I will also appreciate it as well. "

    "I am not one for romance (just talk to my ex-wife for five minutes), but this was a well done effort in the genre. I love new renditions of old fairy tales. This one updates the classic Beauty and the Beast story with a more feminist bend, but not in the negative current movement way. It's charming and delightful. Fun for all ages."

    "This book will throw you for a loop. When you read the title you might think a story like the famous Beauty and The Beast but it's not what you will get. The story is riddled with plots and secrets and I think anyone will enjoy it if they give it a chance. "

    "This is a great retelling of a classic story that I just couldn't help but read. The book is loaded with so much character and exceptional character development. For those looking to dive into the romantic genre, this is a steamy entry that is both unique and fresh for readers. The novel is both nuanced and detailed while still being a sexy steamy novel for those looking for that. "

    "This was a surprisingly good novel. I'm not attracted to fairy tale inspired stories but this one is engaging. The only issue I have is that the reason for the heroine's initial predicament is not made entirely clear. Fast read and keeps your attention."

    "An interesting take on the original "Beauty and the Beast" story. It takes the original story and makes it so much better."

    "I liked the first book in this series – only connected by the fact that they’re fairy-tale-retellings, nothing else – but had some issues with it. The chief one being that the heroine wasn’t at all likable. She did some pretty despicable things to her sister for no apparent reason. So, despite the fact that A Kiss at Midnight got better towards the end, I was leery of starting the second book. It’s my favorite re-telling, hands down, and I was afraid that I’d end up hating it. That is not the case here. I absolutely adored Linnet from the first moment that we meet her. She’s smart, sarcastic, funny, sensible, quick, thoughtful, and pragmatic. She’s beautiful, and she knows it; she uses that to her best advantage, but never really believes she’s better or more worthy because of her beauty. She knows that it’s something she had no control over, just like her birth as one of the aristocrats, so it’s not something she’s particularly proud of."
