Beauty Tempts the Beast by Lorraine Heath

Avon, 2020

⭐⭐⭐⭐ (.5)

Here’s to Lorraine Heath, who has been making me cry (in a good way!) since I was 12 years old. Beauty Tempts the Beast is a tender, simmery (I’m making that a word) ending to the Sins for All Seasons series. And it perfectly sets up her next series too. So yay.

This one might be my favorite book in the series. And not just because of Beast. (But, yeah, Beast. I really love Beasts. *see my tattoo*)

Lorraine Heath is so SO good at writing intimacy, physical and otherwise. I felt goosebumpy several times with this book and with just the simplest gesture or touch. Masterful!

I also was appreciative of a heroine coming to terms with her (former) privilege. That feels very timely right now.

Additionally, this epilogue made me so weepy. I needed some warm, soft, fierce family love and it delivered.

Thank you Avon and Netgalley for the opportunity to read an advanced copy. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
