Overview

A mysterious bequest sends the outspoken and vivacious Lady Ivy St. Clair on an errand to the wilds of Wales. Although weather and circumstance conspire to trap her, Ivy embraces this last gasp of adventure before she has to settle into marriage. Even if she must contend with the Monster Earl.

Scarred and disfigured in a carriage accident, Auburn Seaton, Earl Tamberlake, prefers solitude to society. Aware of the moniker the ton has given him, he embraces the darkness. When Ivy disrupts his world, he is forced to confront the shadows she reveals and face the light--the light she embodies.

But she has a duty to her family that doesn't include him. Besides, no one can expect her to choose a monster. Can one?

This was a classic beauty and the beast tale. The hero felt unworthy of love because of his physical scars. Loved the heroine also! You can truly close your eyes and picture the characters and scene. I have this in paperback and will never part with it. Hard to find this type of romance. Bravo! This is romance at its best. You won't regret reading this one. Worth every penny and more!

Ms. Anderson has a real nack for drawing the reader into the story. She creates outstanding characters who are imperfect, charismatic, and sexy! I loved it!

This is a refreshing tale about two imperfect people. Finally a book where the H/H aren't absolutely perfect to begin with. This book has sex appeal from start to finish and a very interesting twist that isn't quite PC--loved it. Even my husband enjoyed it. This one is staying on my bookshelf.

Ivy St. Clair is surprised by a mysterious bequest by Lord Stanhope, a man whom she has never met. He's left her some property if she will deliver a package to the reclusive Earl of Tamberlake. Eager to get away from her demanding parents and self-centered sister, she and her brother travel to Wales to deliver the package.Auburn Seaton, Earl of Tamberlake is known as the Monster Earl after a carriage accident and fire leaves his face disfigured and his leg badly broken. Even hidden behind a mask, people fear to look at him--including his own mother, his fiancée has cried off and married another, so he's happily retired from society. The sudden arrival of Ivy and her brother and her house-keeper/companion---and the breakdown of their carriage, forcing them to remain, is an unwelcome imposition on Auburn's peace and quiet.The story is a classic Beauty and the Beast, with plucky Ivy seeing the good and humanity behind the scars. Auburn is brusque at first, but slowly comes around to Ivy's charms and begins to see that all of society can't be so shallow and heartless. But Ivy is already betrothed to another, someone her parents found and insist she marry for her father's political advantage and so her younger sister can be free to look for someone to marry--and Ivy is abruptly called back to London before she and Auburn can settle upon other plans.How will Auburn manage to get Ivy out of her betrothal? Will he return to brave the society that rejected him years ago? Will Ivy's heart stay true for him?There are some interesting secondary characters who help round out the tale, notably Ivy's brother, who is a good friend in misery to her. Ivy's parents are sketched well enough to be suitably obnoxious, but believable. Auburn's Mother turns out to be more than uni-dimensional, which is a nice surprise. The former fiancée reappears and has a bit of depth. Even brief cameos such as one of Auburn's former friends turns out to have quite a bit of character, along with the dead Lord Stanhope in his role of match-maker, finding a perfect mate that would bring his friend Auburn out of seclusion.There's a bit of mystery and danger towards the end, as if the plot needed something more. Some readers have found the main conflict--that of Ivy's betrothal-- unbelievable, but it seemed reasonable enough to me since betrothals weren't broken without scandal. I thought the plot was handled well enough and many details were nicely tied up. All in all, it was a very satisfying read.

This is the first book I have read from this author but it will not be the last. I loved this story. It was a very fast read and I am sorry it is over.
