Another fabulous fairy-tale retelling! I've said it before, but James' has the ability to crack my heart, put it back together, and make me smile by the end of the book. This story in particular was hard to read, what woman isn't self-conscious about her appearance. Reading Theo and Ryburn's story could have been the story of every woman: wanting to be loved and appreciated for what is on the inside, not the outside. And the scene towards the end when James takes Theo's weasely friend hand was swoon worthy! You can never go wrong with a James' title.
