    1. spoiler-free, mainly (no big suspense give-aways) Wonderfully written "Beauty and the Beast" Regency Romance, set in 1805 in Northumberland, near the Scottish border. Despite the "clean" factor, Eden manages to engender sexual tension, imbuing her characters with emotional depth. This is not a Christian romance, despite the publisher. No mention of scriptures and Eden does not evangelize. The POV shifts from Adam to Persephone. Internal musings are limited to brief digressions so it does not hin [...]


    2. When I saw a friend had reviewed this the other day it of course got me thinking about it again and so I thought I'd just pick it up and read a bit, and of course got sucked in and ended up reading the whole thing! This is one of my favorite regencies, I've read it quite a few times. I realized when I went to review it, that I had actually read it the past couple summers, always in June - this seems to be a summer favorite of mine. I'll of course have to pick up Courting Miss Lancaster because t [...]


    3. 4.75 stars - pg/mild pg13Love this story! Love Adam, the Duke of Kielder and Harry, his best and only friend! The two of them are hysterical together. (I enjoyed book two, which is Harry's story, but, truly, I liked Harry even more in this book.) Love this author! I rarely re-read books; Sarah Eden's books are one of the exceptions (along with Georgette Heyer) -- I will gladly re-read hers for years to come. So far I've read this one twice and loved it just as much both times. Another reviewer ( [...]


    4. I love Sarah's books they are full of wit and great banter between her lead characters. This book was no different. Persephone what a name, and fitting at that. I really liked Persephone she was courageous, that Duke Kielder(sounds like killed her), now would that not be intimidating! Persephone is intimidated, but stands strong and tries not to show it, she is witty, happy, kind,and sensitive. Duke Kielder (Adam), is over barring, egotistical in a good way, ornery, brooding, intimidating, and h [...]


    5. 1-15-18 - I was in the mood for a really good book so thought I'd go back to the tried and true and read a bunch of Sarah Eden's books. They don't disappoint! And can I say how much I love her hero's? Adam is awesome. 12/25/13 - Another re-readjust as great the third time around.12/19/12 - Rereading all of hers, LOVE THEM!!! They make me happy when skies are gray. 9/19/11 - So good! I am so glad they republished this. I stayed up till 2:00 in the morning to finish it. I hope they redo more of he [...]


    6. I enjoyed the relationships and dialogue.Adam has facial scars. He doesn’t like to be around people. He is a Duke. He realizes he needs a wife and heir so his cousins won’t inherit his lands. He pays a large sum of money to a family with money problems in return for Persephone becoming his wife. He hopes she is ugly. He does not see her until the wedding. He is surprised that she is prettier than he wanted.I enjoyed the way Adam insulted his best friend Harry but Harry laughed at every insul [...]


    7. December 2017: *dreamy sigh* Oh how I love this book! It is still one of my favorites of Ms. Eden's! June 2016:Adam was born with his right ear missing. Several surgeons believed that his ear was just under the surface and with surgery they could dig it out of hiding. Several unsuccessful surgeries later, his parents finally gave up hope that the ear would ever make an appearance. But all this left Adam even more disfigured and scarred both physically and emotionally. Feeling rejected by his mot [...]


    8. Seeking Persephone was entertaining and quick. I read through it in one day and enjoyed it. If you are looking for a cute love story that is clean, fun, and short, this a good pick. If you are looking for something more, look elsewhere. There are two reasons I didn't rate it higher. First, I didn't enjoy it as much as other books I've read. Frankly, I thought the main character Adam was annoying. His character was defined by exactly one characteristic and emotion. Later in the book he kind of de [...]


    9. Wow I loved this book! I was engrossed in the first page and couldn't put it down. Not that it is a fast passed action packed adventurer, far from it. This is a English romance that was a joy to read! Edan creates great complex characters and explains why they do the things they do and why it is logical to do them. In so many romance novels the heroines are very changeable and you wonder why they do the things they do but not Edan's characters. I just love a sweet, complicated love story and you [...]



    10. I hope Mrs. Eden won't take this the wrong way. I met her the other night at a book signing. She's lovely. However, I am a little upset at these new LDS authors. I feel a certain level of indignation because what do they think they are they doing with their sweet, chaste romances, anyway? I thought I was too sophisticated for such nonsense. I mean, of course I have no problem with the chaste romance part. It's just that these authors are changing my perception of the LDS literature I knew as a t [...]


    11. LOVED, LOVED! This had a Beauty and the Beast theme going on which I thought worked really well without any magical elements to it and without it being a repeat story. This doesn't have a whole lot of exciting plots going on. It sticks with the relationship being the main focus of the story. And that works in this case! I never found myself wishing something exciting would happen, I just got lost in the story for what it was. I loved how angry and bitter Adam was because of his disfigurement. I [...]


    12. This update to all my friends: Just saw that the Provo library has this book now! It was re-published by Covenant and I will be getting myself a copy! (don't like the new cover as much - why replace the guy with awesome sideburns? lol!)I am going to Gush now - I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! It was a wonderful romancea little bit P&P, a dash Jane Eyre (Adam, the Duke of Kielder, was definitely reminiscent of Mr. Rochester) , and a pinch Beauty and the Beast. Except this Romance begins with a ma [...]


    13. This was a nice sweet read, and I loved how the myth of Persephone was really woven into it. The best thing about this book really was the relationship between Persephone and the Duke. The tension between them was wonderfully written and I just loved everyone. Honestly, no complaints. Read this if you want to end up with a smile on your face :)


    14. When I first read the book I felt a little weird liking it since Adam was abrupt and cold at times. After seeing him in the next books, especially Daphne's, I realized it was all a facade. Although he really is grumpy and loves to threaten people, deep inside he is just a grumpy but lovable bear. I do admit that I got fired at times of Persephone thinking that she was at fault while it was just Adam's shyness and old issues talking. That's something Sarah M Eden does with most of her books. I un [...]


    15. ~4.5 stars~ This book has been sitting on my shelf at home for far too long. I purchased the book and several more of Sarah Eden's books because I really want to read them. I have heard (or read) good things about them and couldn't wait to discover them for myself.Persephone is a lovable and vulnerable character. She lives her life for everyone else, she sacrifices her wants and desires to help the people she loves. When she receives an offer of marriage by post, offering her family a substantia [...]


    16. Blegggh. I wanted to like this book. It's got the set up of a book I would really like. It's equal parts Beauty and the Beast, Persephone, and Jane Austen.But holy cow was Adam a whiny babyman.Look, I get that the beast/Hades/whoever is supposed to be cold towards our mc at first. Part of the fun is watching him soften up, because we all know under the frostiness he's got a heart of gold. But Adam was just flat out hard to like. His mom and dad split up when he was little, and he has minor scarr [...]


    17. First read: November 2, 2012: I must be on a romance book kick lately; they just keep drawing me in. Maybe it's the season? Whatever. I loved this book. I ordered the sample on my kindle first to see if the characters or dialogue irritated or interested me. I finished the sample and immediately bought the book.I adored the fun banter between the characters and the setting. Lets be honest, I know little of Britain's topography, but I do have an imagination and am happy to jump into a novel and di [...]


    18. I wish this book would have been re-released before Courting Miss Landcaster, because I loved getting to know the background of grumpy, irritable Adam. Adam, a duke, is very cranky and fearsome and decides that he needs a wife in order to keep a cousin in line to inherit at bay. His solicitor makes arrangements and Persephone joins the household. Bute's different than he expected. bit by bit, she works at becoming at least friends with the duke.Very cute regency romance. It almost had a Beauty a [...]


    19. This is the frist Sarah M.Eden book I've picked up and it won't be the last.I adore the wit and courage of her characters, both Adam and Persephone by time brought out something in each other, and thru that love blossom. I really loved that. That both just didn't fall head over heels in love with each at frist sight, but they're love grew by getting to know each other.Just a all around wonderful book!


    20. Loved every word of this book!!!!d I mean LOVED!I have loved everything that I've read of Sarah M Eden's though so maybe I am bias!:) I just really enjoyed this regency "beauty and the beast" type clean romance and I am so excited that I have added it permenately to my home library!! I'm anxiously waiting for more of this authors work to be published!!!



    21. I enjoyed this book. I felt the pace was a little slow, but I enjoyed it so much most of the time I didn't care. Will go on to read her other titles.


    22. Enjoyed. I had already read books 2 & 3 in the series. Fun to go back and read how these two came togetherntent: clean


    23. I knew right off that this book was another take on Beauty and the Beast, but what I have never given much thought to before is how the fairy tale itself is really a re-telling of the Hades/Persephone Greek myth. Which has me thinking:1) Why do Beauty/Beast or Hades/Persephone tales continue to be so popular?If you have read any modern interpretations, you have surely heard the complaint that the fairy tale encourages young women to marry horrible men in the mistaken belief that the touch of a w [...]


    24. This story contains elements of Beauty and the Beast except that Persephone isn't a beauty and the Duke is not really a beast. Although most who know the Duke consider him a 'beast' in terms of behavior and his tendency to bury himself at his estate. Few are willing to enter his domain, but Persephone must to save her family from poverty. She greatly fears that she has little chance of happiness in the cold and cheerless environment in which she finds herself. But slowly she starts to see that t [...]


    25. Before I have even started reading, I have pasted a piece of pretty wrapping paper over the cover because it is that awful. After waiting for this book (which I have no doubt will be amazing) for an eternity to be published so that I may finally get my hands on a copy to read, I am greeted by this cover so bad that I really don't want anyone to see me reading it. TO PUBLISHERS EVERYWHERE: Stop putting the face of the character on the front cover, it's insulting. And PLEASE stop this trend of the [...]


    26. Adam is the Duke of Kielder, plausibly the most powerful position in England after the throne. Unfortunately his cousin, who stands in line as Adam’s heir, is an idiot. Which means Adam really only has one legal alternative. Marriage. A rather unlikely proposition considering his reputation, his complete dearth of manners, and the fact that half his face has been scarred since childhood.Persephone is the eldest sibling of a family with no prospects. Her mother is dead, her father an impractica [...]


    27. As far as regency romance goes, this one was pretty good. The Duke of Kielder is scarred, anti-social, and successfully intimidates pretty much everyone. He's refuses to leave his estate to a cousin he feels is an idiot, and the only other solution besides burning the place down is to produce an heir. Convinced no one would stick around long enough to give him one because of his scars, he "buys" a bride from a very poor family, expecting her to be unattractive and unable to ever marry otherwise. [...]


    28. From the back-cover description of this book I thought it was going to be a retelling of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale. Not so, it followed a different story line completely, one much less used and far more interesting. I loved seeing how the author implemented all of the elements of that story into this one. I am so embarrassed it took me so long to figure out which story it was; really, it should’ve been blatantly obvious from the beginning. After I figured it out though, I couldn’t [...]
