For May’s H&H Book Club, we chose Teresa Medeiros’s The Bride and the Beast, featuring an overweight heroine.
If you’ve read any of the book thus far, you also know the heroine is smart, logical, curious, self-deprecating, conscientious, and loyal. She’s thrust into a situation well beyond her control—into a dragon’s lair!—but she doesn’t just give up, but fights against what might be seen as insurmountable odds.
Do you like the fantasy elements embedded into the traditional historical? Do you like the hero? Do you like the book thus far?
