...And we’ve come to the end of May, and thus are wrapping up the discussion on May’s H&H Book Club choice, Teresa Medeiros’s The Bride and the Beast.
We chose the book because it featured a larger heroine, and it’s gratifying to see that Gwen remains her lovely size throughout the book, not having a miraculous makeover, and that Bernard appreciates the way she looks, even comparing a beautiful, thinner woman unfavorably to her.
While the first part of the book featured Gwen and the Dragon spending long hours in discussion and pondering of the other’s charms, the last quarter or so was a lot of running about, with Bernard and then Gwen heading to London, and then back to Scotland.
Eventually, of course, they resolve their respective issues and are back in the laird’s castle, presumably to make little dragons and continue their witty banter.
Now that you’ve finished the book, what did you think? Is this your first Medeiros? Will you read more of her? What was your favorite element of the book? What was your least favorite element?
