Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Can a wounded beast...

Reclusive Sir Alistair Munroe has hidden in his castle ever since returning from the Colonies, scarred inside and out. But when a mysterious beauty arrives at his door, the passions he's kept suppressed for years begin to awaken.

Trust a beauty with a past...

Running from past mistakes has taken legendary beauty Helen Fitzwilliam from the luxury of the ton to a crumbling Scottish castle . . . and a job as a housekeeper. Yet Helen is determined to start a new life and she won't let dust-or a beast of a man-scare her away.

To tame his most secret desires?

Beneath Helen's beautiful facade, Alistair finds a courageous and sensual woman. A woman who doesn't back away from his surliness-or his scars. But just as he begins to believe in true love, Helen's secret past threatens to tear them apart. Now both Beast and Beauty must fight for the one thing neither believed they could ever find-a happy ever after.

Virginia Campbell, October 2, 2011 (view all comments by Virginia Campbell)
To Beguile a Beast by Elizabeth Hoyt is not a typical historical romance. The hero, Sir Alistair Munroe, is physically flawed, but principled and intelligent. The heroine, Helen Fitzwilliam, while classically beautiful, has taken some wrong turns in life. In order to find safe harbor for herself and her two children, she must flee the powerful man, the Duke of Lister, to whom she has been a mistress for more than ten years. While the Duke feels no real love for Helen, or the two children she has borne him, he refuses to let Helen leave him of her own free will. Forced to assume the identify of a housekeeper, Helen surprises Alistair at his run down castle with a recommendation from a mutual acquaintance. Alistair has been living in increasing despair and disorder. At first, he insists that Helen and the children cannot stay, but he soon comes to enjoy the life and light they bring to his home. Helen is no housekeeper or cook, but she applies herself to setting things to right. The children overcome their initial apprehension at the disfigurement Alistair has suffered, and they spend more and more time with him, learning from his scientific mind. It is not science which draws Alistair and Helen together, but sizzling chemistry! When the Duke kidnaps his own children to force Helen to return to him, Alistair must examine his own moral code and the deep love he feels for Helen and the children.

Synopsis:

Beautiful Helen Fitzwilliam escapes London with her two young children and heads to Lord Alistair Munroe's castle in Scotland. Armed with a letter from Lady Vale but knowing little about Alistair, Helen Fitzwilliam arrives in the middle of night and introduces herself as the new housekeeper. From the start, Helen wonders whether she's made the right decision. The castle is filthy, neglected, and without servants. Alistair is gruff, irritable and horribly scarred, but this may be the safest place for them to hide, so Helen sets about learning to keep house and make herself indispensable. Though Alistair seems scarred and irritable, she starts to notice his patience, kindness, and tall lean body.

Reclusive Alistair Munroe is puzzled by Helen Fitzwilliam and her children. Helen is too beautiful and well dressed to be a housekeeper, though she might be a member of the ton on a dare. Her horror at his scars convinced him that she hadn't known about him or his history. He had gotten used to avoiding human contact and wasn't looking forward to having to see the horrified looks of these newcomers. When he inadvertently learns that Helen is hiding from someone, he takes sympathy and welcomes them to his home.

Meanwhile, Helen's lover is determined to find her and teach her never to run from him again.

Review:

I thoroughly enjoyed To Beguile A Beast. It's a light romantic read with just the right mix of suspense, romance, and humor. I liked Helen and her children. The children and their interaction with Alistair Munroe added another dimension to the story.

If you're looking for a historical romance and a quick read, I recommend giving Elizabeth Hoyt's To Beguile A Beast a read.
