    Ok

    I was thoroughly disappointed, Dominique just went on and on thru the whole book about his not being loved and about his parents. He treated Isabelle awful until the very end. No sex scenes. Definitely not a five star book, was generous to even give three stars.

    Just like most of Rachel's characters I fell in love with Domini

    Just like most of Rachel's characters I fell in love with Dominique and Isabelle. Dominique, a musical prodigy with a tortured past so devastating that to survive he created walls and barriers so solid no one could get through (or so he hoped). Isabelle, the younger sister of Rosalind, sold like property to the one they call the beast. On her way to captivity Isabelle asks Dominique why did he buy her he responds "Because when I saw you the music changed." With that cryptic response Isabelle is whisked off to a castle with no idea what was in store. Dominique enlists the help of his friend the "Wolf" and it is an interesting and funny journey as beauty tries to tame her beast but are the walls to thick for even Isabelle to break thru? It was an amazing read truly! I swear Rachel gets better and better with each book she writes OH and the teaser at the end for Wolf's story had me in tears begging for more! The London Fairy Tale series is a MUST READ for all that love regency OR fairy tales (or if you are like me BOTH!) Cant wait to see what else this talented writer has up her sleeve!

    Different, but not concise

    This was the first Rachel Van Dyken book I've ever purchased, and I must admit I should have read the reviews prior to buying. The book has intresting moments, but it's not consistant and it's hard to follow the characters when transitions (such as riding on top of a horse, but the character is suddenly walking) are not clearly written. I'll give the book kudos for being different in the way of Dominque being a piano prodigy, but beware, the book begins with Isabelle and Dominque already knowing each other. There is very little written about the characters past and how they came to know each other.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    I fell in love with the first book in the London Fairy Tales, which was Upon A Midnight Dream. Whispered Music is an even greater story that is expertly weaved together and I didn’t think that it would get better but I was proved wrong.  It was a great retelling of Beauty and the Beast and even better than the children’s version.

    Isabelle is a beautiful young woman that suddenly has her world turned upside down. One moment she is at a ball and the next she is going to be married to a perfect stranger.  Isabelle has so much love in her heart and she can’t help falling in love with the Beast, even if he does make her cry.  Dominque was never going to marry but how could he ignore the music that was in his head that told him something bad was going to happen to Isabelle? He had learned at such an early age to listen to the music.  You think the Beast is cruel and mean but that is just what he wants people to think. He had a bad childhood and never got to be a child except when he would go on his hourly rides. He makes such wonderful music. That’s the legacy that he does for his mother. He didn’t want his father to win but what he doesn’t realize is tha,t in a way, he is letting him win. Both characters have strong personalities and you really get to see how well they are made for each other. I just wish I had the ability to weave such a wonderful story to light!

    I love a great romance book but if the Wolf hadn’t been in this book, it wouldn’t have been so enjoyable. I loved how he would rile Dominque about Isabelle. I think that Dominque would still be hiding behind his rough exterior if it wasn’t for him and I really got caught up in this story. I went through all the feelings and felt every emotion. It takes a wonderful woman to love a Beast and be able to see through all of his cruel words to what’s underneath and in his heart.  I can’t wait to read the next story in the London Fairy Tales. I got a glimpse of the Wolf’s story and I hope that there will be even more after his story.
