A hastily arranged marriage to an elderly Marquis is thrown off track when the carriage Lady Lily Rouge is travelling in is abandoned in an enchanted wood purported to contain many unbelievable creatures. Marrok is perhaps the most unbelievable of all.
Cursed for over a millennium, Sir Marrok Ulfang has waited for a pure maiden who can release him. The problem is he has only one day to woo, win and make love to Lily or he remains in his state of cursedom for eternity.
Werewolves, goblins and pixies just to begin; add a luscious maiden, a gorgeous hunk, plus a villain or two and you’ve got the makings of a first rate romantic fairytale- adult style. With keen wit and good humor Ms. Scarlett presents a delectable tale for my enjoyment as the heroine and hero try to decide how to “win the war” so to speak.
