    Will Make You Feel Good!

    This is a sweet Regency about a spinster in her middle thirties and an earl who is younger and scarred on his face from wounds received in the Peninsular War. Each thinks no one wants them and they come to know one another and fall in love sight unseen through the exchange of letters. A short but beautiful feel good story!

    Don't judge a person by age or supposed beauty

    Great book. A story through letters is a wonderful touch! It makes an intriguing twist on a romance story.

    This was a great story that I did not want to end. I could not put it down and went searching for more books by this author half way through.

    Great beauty and the beast read

    This book was very hard to put down! I read it in one evening. I love beauty and the beast themed romances and this one did not dissapoint. The main characters were very likable. Adam was a twenty nine year old scarred war vet as well as an earl and Liz was a thirty six year old spinster that lived with her brother and his family. They fell in love before ever meeting through letters. This was a good clean read that would even be appropriate for a teen as well as enjoyable for an adult. Worth the money and then some!

    Sweet Story

    Short sweet romance. Could have been a good book with deeper character development and more plot. Nice short read.

    Great story!

    I really enjoyed the Spinster and the Beast -- this actually would have been a great full-length book instead of novella. If you like light-hearted Regencies (more rated G), then you will really like this one.

    Quick Cozy Read

    I liked the story, though predictable (As most regency romance books are) It was sweet how the story developed. It was short and sweet which was exactly what I was looking for. I would recommend it!

    When they say novella, they mean it.

    Could use a few more chapters. Good writing, but stilted ending - really don't care for it when characters change quite so much they end up seeming like a different person altogether.

    Enjoyable romantic tale!

    Cute premise for a story, a letter falling in to the wrong (or right) hands. Two people unwanted by others, wanting each other.

    THe Spinster and the Beast was a nice read. The story line was nice for those cold autumn days when you curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and a book. Over all it was a sweet love story with a lovely ending.

    VERY ROMANTIC!!

    I loved this book because they fell in love with the inner beauty of each other and not the outer beauty. I also feel that the authur met her page quota and then finished the book. I was sad that the story was short for i want to no more about the characters and what happened with them. I is defenitly a MUST READ book!!

    Absolutely charming!

    A delightful story about two lonely misfits who accidently discover their soulmate. In today's fast-paced lifestyle of instant messaging, the art of letter writing has perished. This story makes a reader yearn for this old fashioned type of personal correspondence. This will tug at the heartstrings!
