Publisher’s Description:

Tangled Tales Series, Book 1
(A twisted, tangled, romantic retelling of the fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood.)

Lord Hugh de Bar, known as Wolf, has been cursed and shapeshifts into a wolf at night. He vows to kill the man responsible for his torture, Earl Roland Chaserton of Tavistock, but the man has avoided this confrontation by staying locked away in his castle in hiding. But when the man’s granddaughter appears in the woods alone at night, Wolf realizes he can take her captive to lure the earl out of hiding so he can kill him. However, he needs to proceed with caution since the girl is armed with a crossbow and skilled at killing wolves – and also very alluring.

Lady Winifred (Red) Chaserton has defied her grandfather’s orders and sneaked out of the castle to investigate a mysterious hidden door in a knoll that she’s seen on one of the hunting trips with her grandfather’s knights. Alone in the dark and without an escort, she has only her crossbow to protect her. But when she feels she’s being followed by a wolf, the handsome lord of Babeny appears to protect her instead. She is intrigued by the presence of Lord Hugh de Bar, and lets down her guard. However, things aren’t always as they seem, and when she’s taken captive by him she realizes there is more to this dark lord than meets the surface. He says he despises her for killing wolves and being the granddaughter of his archenemy, yet his eyes tell her a different story. His gaze devours her – and she feels like he wants to eat her.

Will magical forces come between a lady and a wolf, or bring them together instead? And will the de Bar family finally find redemption from the dark magic that has been bestowed upon each of the siblings and brought turmoil into their lives?

My Thoughts:

Who doesn’t love fairytales and this adult twist of Little Red Ridinghood is a well written version of this tale filled with fantasy and magic.
A much loved fairytale has been morphed into an adulthood version but still keeps the flavor we have all come to love.

Wolf is our hero instead of the villain in this retelling. The villain in this case is a witch who has cursed his family turning his twin brother into a wolf, full-time and himself into a shape shifter who turns from human to wolf.
Will our heroine find it in her heart to not kill the wolves? Will she discover the mysterious secrets behind this man/wolf she has come to love?
I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.0 of 5.0 flames.
I purchased this title via Amazon in 2016 and read it. I remembered it when the author offered me a complimentary digital copy to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I have re-read and reviewed voluntarily.

Amazon #1 New Release in British & Irish Literature

Publisher’s Description:

Would my lady care to dance?”
“My lady would rather eat a live chicken.”

Beautiful, titled, and wealthy to boot, Lady Lydia Beaufort was expected to have a spectacular London Season. There was just one problem; the eccentric daughter of the Earl of Galway had no intention of becoming the ton’s darling. Especially if it involved humouring the awful herds of fortune hunters and greedy second sons, intent on making her their bride.
All Lydia wanted was to be left alone in peace, to read her beloved Lord Byron. That is until an incorrigible rogue of a Marquess burst into her life, and turned all her ideas about love upside down.
Charming, congenial, and ever so handsome, Gabriel Livingstone, Marquess of Sutherland could have his pick of any of the season’s debutantes, but the only rose he longed to pluck, was the very thorny Lady Beaufort. Just when he thinks he might finally have won her heart, fate, in the form of an Italian Count, a mischievous Gypsy and a political assassination plot, gets in his way.
Can the mismatched pair find their way through all the obstacles life, and London have to offer, to find love?
Read this final installment of the Regency Black Heart Series to find out…

*This is the third book in the Regency Black Hearts Series but can be read as a standalone novel. It is a clean, friends to lovers themed romance, that will bring a smile to your face – and perhaps a tear or two.*

She might be the one fire he can’t put out…

Caitlin Tyler doesn’t do bridges—she just doesn’t know it until she lands her dream job and freezes halfway across her new town’s towering death span. Cue the cocky, infuriating fireman who goads her off the bridge. He’s hot, but he’s also exactly the kind of guy she wants to avoid…which she manages to do for a whole four hours.

Lt. Shane Hendricks is only two weeks away from leaving Dry Rock. He sure as hell doesn’t need to get involved with a woman he has to rescue twice in one day. The fact that she’s clearly annoyed by him doesn’t deter him from throwing down a challenge—one that proves hard to resist for all the wrong reasons.

They’re moving in different directions. Leaving should be easy, but falling for Caitlin might be the one fire he can’t put out…
