From the Back Cover
Miss Linnet Berry Thrynne is a Beauty . . . Naturally, she's betrothed to a Beast.
Piers Yelverton, Earl of Marchant, lives in a castle in Wales where, it is rumored, his bad temper flays everyone he crosses. And rumor also has it that a wound has left the earl immune to the charms of any woman.
Linnet is not just any woman.
She is more than merely lovely: her wit and charm brought a prince to his knees. She estimates the earl will fall madly in love—in just two weeks.
Yet Linnet has no idea of the danger posed to her own heart by a man who may never love her in return.
If she decides to be very wicked indeed . . . what price will she pay for taming his wild heart?

This is honestly my new favorite book. I read it really quickly and regret it because I am now wanting more. I liked "A Kiss at Midnight" but this is exponentially better. I've read 10 books by Eloisa but this one takes the cake.
Piers and Linnet (an intelligent beauty) verbally spar from the first moment, a writing tool when done correctly is enjoyable, but here it is sublime. It is a romance with the requisite amount of hot love scenes, but it is also funny and sweet and well done. I enjoyed the ending, since I always like epilogues that give me a glimpse into the future lives of the characters.
E. James names two of the doctors studying with Piers at his castle hospital Kibbles and Bitts...LOL.
First of all, I was already not liking how her father let her go unchaperone with the Duke and how her aunt actually encouraged her to lose her virginity to someone else... what time period are we in!? I dont care if shes already ruined, where are peoples dignity?
Although I only seen a handful of episode of House, I immediatly saw him in Piers - Doctor who walks on a cane with a bad temper but that didnt bother me, I actually like that but when his temper gets the best of him and how he tells Linnet to leave was just cruel!
And then the Duke (Piers Father) lets her go back to London alone!? In the middle of an epedemic at that! I was so upset, again, what time period is this? Ok so the Duke wanted to be with his ex-wife but he was duty bound to take Linnet back! And then Linnet gets sick (With Piers after a week finally taking notice that she might not be well) and all of a sudden she changes her mind about wanting to marry Piers because she no longer feels beautiful. What a hipocrite!
This book felt like a modern soap opera but trying to put it in the 19th century. It didnt work for me.
