"The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare meets Taming of the Shrew in the start to a new Regency series from award-winning author Amalie Howard.

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."

My Thoughts:

I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end. It’s a historical romance twist on Beauty And The Beast meets Taming Of The Shrew and it is so so good. This book delivers great characters and delivers wonderful romantic tension.

I have to start with Astrid because she was the star of the show. I absolutely adored her. She is so smart and quick witted and has absolutely no patience for the patriarchy and just same girl. And I loved how much she loved her sister and was willing to go to any length for her. And she has met her match with Thane. Give me a grumpy hero any day and Thane sure is a grumpy one. He has closed himself off but Astrid just busts her way into his life and will not leave. I loved these two and how they really were suited so well for one another. Thane needed someone who would put him in his place and Astrid needed someone who would respect her as an equal and that’s exactly what they find in one another. They had great chemistry and how I loved their banter. Also a quick shout out to Mabel who is such a troublemaker and scene stealer.

The Beast Of Beswick was just such a good read. The characters are so vibrant and flawed and real and I loved them so much. Amalie Howard never disappoints and she certainly didn’t disappoint here.
