    Love Medeiros My favorite quote from the story How could I have let you do any of those things when I ve never even seen your face When I don t even know your name That may be true, he said quietly, but for just a moment there, I would have sworn you knew my heart.

    This is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast set in 1700 s Scotland.The story starts with our hero Brandon His family, the lord of a village was betrayed to the English by one of the villagers His family was killed and he was taken prisoner for many years He is hiding back out in his ruined castle after many years away.The heroine Gwen is 25 and thought to be strange by her family and village because of her love of science in a time of superstition The villagers think there is a half man half This is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast set in 1700 s Scotland.The story starts with our hero Brandon His family, the lord of a village was betrayed to the English by one of the villagers His family was killed and he was taken prisoner for many years He is hiding back out in his ruined castle after many years away.The heroine Gwen is 25 and thought to be strange by her family and village because of her love of science in a time of superstition The villagers think there is a half man half dragon living in the castle or possibly a ghost because of strange sounds They tie her up and leave her in the ruined castle for an appeasement for their guilt This story is a popular staple for re imagining into romance novels This book is a little different in that the language and the tone is especially fairy tale like You can practically imagine it with wood carving illustrations This isn t a bad thing because it makes for an interesting change.I liked this book but there is one aspect that really bugged me The heroine mentions a million times that she is a bigger curvy girl, and it gets irritating There is one point where Brandon tells Gwen she has incredibly soft skin and she replies that most fat girls do WHAT Way to break the mood Gwen Learn to take a compliment

    After reading the cover blurb and through Chapter 2, you can pretty much see exactly how the rest of the book will go Now, that s no problem, if engaging characters, rich dialogue, or humorous situations keep you entertained while you read No such luck.Hero is boring, emo, 1 D Dragon analogy is stretch throughout the book in non clever, corny ways I must be revenged What I love her Ok.Gwen is curvy plump Don t worry about forgetting it, because it s shoved in your face about once a page After reading the cover blurb and through Chapter 2, you can pretty much see exactly how the rest of the book will go Now, that s no problem, if engaging characters, rich dialogue, or humorous situations keep you entertained while you read No such luck.Hero is boring, emo, 1 D Dragon analogy is stretch throughout the book in non clever, corny ways I must be revenged What I love her Ok.Gwen is curvy plump Don t worry about forgetting it, because it s shoved in your face about once a page Besides having an IQ higher than an orange and a childhood crush, that s her main personality.Side romance is also shallow Not charming, as I think it was going for Dumb as rocks sister falls for kind boring harmless sidekick.Mostly for plot purposes, villagers transcend idiocy past the point of belief It was awful.Their love comesfrom mutual attraction than anything else They interact a few times nothing happens and all of a sudden they are in love And we re suppose to believe it It s actually very annoying.Ugh

    Another take on a beauty and the beast theme, although the Dragon is hardly a beast The Bride and the Beast is a revenge and forgiveness story with a dash of humour and sadness to even the things out This other part goes into a Monty Python s Flying Circus territory One of the scenes reminded me of a Monty Python scene involving a mob I can t really say which one exactly since it would be a bit spoiler y fortunately, they had a lot of those Hilarious and horrific at the same time.I liked Another take on a beauty and the beast theme, although the Dragon is hardly a beast The Bride and the Beast is a revenge and forgiveness story with a dash of humour and sadness to even the things out This other part goes into a Monty Python s Flying Circus territory One of the scenes reminded me of a Monty Python scene involving a mob I can t really say which one exactly since it would be a bit spoiler y fortunately, they had a lot of those Hilarious and horrific at the same time.I liked both characters and it doesn t really matter if you need to suspend your disbelief This is a fairy tale retelling of sorts after all

    The hero and the heroine lacked charm and so did the story.Even the ending couldn t save this for me Would not recommend.

    I m a BIG fan of Teresa Medeiros books, I love her work which is why this was really frustrating for me to read because it disappointed me so much I was surprised by this book I don t know what happened but this isn t at all like her other work What I liked The nod to the fairytale story of Beauty and the Beast Who doesn t love that story A woman falling in love with a lonely beast What I didn t like I quickly started losing interest in the second chapter with all the cartoon like chara I m a BIG fan of Teresa Medeiros books, I love her work which is why this was really frustrating for me to read because it disappointed me so much I was surprised by this book I don t know what happened but this isn t at all like her other work What I liked The nod to the fairytale story of Beauty and the Beast Who doesn t love that story A woman falling in love with a lonely beast What I didn t like I quickly started losing interest in the second chapter with all the cartoon like characters who seemedcontrived then real I know this is part of her fairytale series but even for a fairytale story there were things that were a bit far fetched and not really fleshed out You have a village full of people who can t read, who all believe in a fire breathing dragon and the women are all busy making babies Apparently the only sensible person in the entire village is Gwendolyn and that s emphasized repeatedly, she s such a good girl who can read and is fat not really It was as if Medeiros was trying very hard to convince me of it by constantly bringing it up Gwendolyn s sisters for another I just thought were a bit much All three of them are complete light skirts who get a thrill out of finding men to have sex with like it s a competition and have no sense at all I m surprised the youngest one Kitty even got paired with a man with all her wailing and naivete And then the father who supposedly went crazy over some big secret only to find out it s not really a secret I found myself gettingagitated then sympathetic to the characters which wasn t a good sign My biggest problem The love story wasn t really much of a love story The dragon and Gwendolyn barely interact throughout the book They share two scandalous kisses while she s staying at the castle then all of sudden she s giving him her heart saying she loves him even when she s never seen his face The idea behind it was nice and had a nice moral to it but it just came off superficial I just could not buy it Then to have her be furious with him over revealing his identity just came out of left field I tried really hard to like the main characters in this and believe the story but I felt they were very one dimensional The ending wasn t very fulfillinganticlimactic then anything Just none of the characters made any sense to me and came offcartoonish then believable There was a lot missing which is what made it so disappointing for me.Comparing to her other works this is my least favorite It just was completely boring and underwhelming overall Not at all what I was expecting to get from a Medeiros book She s an amazing story teller I just don t think this was her best work
