Publisher’s Description:

Rapunzel de Bar is one of seven siblings that has been cursed by the evil witch, Hecuba. She has been kidnapped by the old woman and kept in a tower that has one window and no doors. When she tires of waiting for her brothers to rescue her, Rapunzel decides to escape on her own. 

One stormy night when the witch is away, Rapunzel uses her braid to lower herself out the tower window. She cuts her braid and falls atop a rider passing by below. 

Sir Marcos Drago is on the tail of a man he’s been hunting down for months when a woman drops from the sky and knocks him off his horse. She is beautiful, but he is furious that now he’s lost his bounty as well as his steed. Marcos is the only son and one of the last dragonlords to walk the land, but no one believes in him – not even himself. He has lost everything in the past few years. His castle has been demolished and his father is a prisoner of his fiercest enemy, having a large ransom on his head. If Marcos can’t find a way to collect the money, his father will die. 

When Rapunzel’s brothers hire Marcos to track down and bring home their sister, he thinks he has found the answer to all his troubles. But when a feisty, beautiful woman and magic are involved, nothing goes as planned. 

Love knows no bounds, and sometimes a prison is not physical . . . but self-made. 

My Thoughts:

This is book five in the Tangled Tales Series and they just keep getting better with each rendition of these well known and loved fairy tales.
I love the way they are woven together by making the characters to be siblings.
This one has laugh out loud moments with knowledge woven in of future books.
They can, however be read as standalone titles though I believe they are better being read in the order of the series.
It is laughable that our heroine suddenly has a younger sister who ages a full year by each day. We don’t know if this will stop at some point and if it does, when.
I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5.0 flames. This book is more fun than sexy.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the author to reads and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Book 6 (Tangled Tales)

Can a forgotten love be rekindled before it is too late?

The Forgotten Lady:
The de Bar siblings continue to be cursed by the old witch, Hecuba as Cinderella’s memories of her past are stripped away. Living with an evil stepmother and two mean stepsisters, Ella can’t remember who she is, and neither can she remember her true family or even Sir William, the man she loves.

The Determined Knight:
Sir William Fremont returns from war to reclaim his castle from his brother and win back the hand of the woman he loves. But along the way he makes a stop in town where he sees Lady Ella de Bar, the woman he almost married before he left to campaign for the king. The odd thing is, Lady Ella is dressed like a peasant and doesn’t seem to know him.

The longer the curse continues, the more people forget Ella exists at all. And if anyone tells her about her past, the curse will never be broken. William sets forth with the challenge of trying to break Ella’s curse and win back her heart. But when his memories of her start to fade as well, it looks as if all hope is lost. 

Can true love break the barriers of dark magic before William and Ella’s past relationship is forgotten forever? 

(Each book in the series stands alone, but it is always better to read in order so that no surprises are ruined.)

Watch for the last book of the series, Heart of Ice (Snow Queen) – Book 7, coming next!

The Oracle of Delphi
(As seen on the History channel)

 Perseus, demi-god, and son of Zeus is on a mission to save his mother’s life. He needs to behead Medusa and bring it back to the evil king of Seriphus in a fortnight, or his mother will lose her life.

Princess Andromeda is on a mission of her own. Once thought to be the successor to The Oracle of Delphi, she bravely sits atop the throne over the pit of knowledge in trickery, to get an answer from the oracle for herself. She is to be sacrificed to a sea serpent in order to save her village and the oracle tells her only the demi-god Perseus can slay the beast.

When Perseus seeks out the oracle in order to find the abode of Medusa, the feisty Princess Andromeda tries to trick him to go on a quest of her own. But Perseus has no time to lose in the mission of saving his mother.

Shadows of doubt linger and it is certain someone will lose a life with one wrong choice, in The Oracle of Delphi.

Kyros’ Secret

Thera, daughter of Ares, God of War, is being used as his pawn to start a war between the Trozens and the Centaur Race. 

When Kyros, second son of the deceased king, jumps in front of Ares’ beam, he unknowingly volunteers to father Thera’s child. Ares plan was to impregnate her with the seed of a centaur and send her to marry Kyros’ evil brother, Pittheus, hence starting a war between the races.

Thera is thrilled her father’s plan is ruined, but Kyros does not share in her happiness. Cursed by Ares, he is a man by day and centaur by night. He keeps his secret from Thera, knowing how much she hates centaurs, and not even sure of the race of the baby. But as their relationship develops, his secret that could destroy them all hangs heavy over his head.

His heroic act brings them together, but his dark secret threatens to tear them apart, in Kyros’ Secret.

A humiliating childhood incident made Lady Amelia Bainbridge vow to avoid Lord Ryder Stanbury. Yet, years later, Ryder comes to her rescue.

Knightly Dreams by ANNA MARKLAND –

Peter Bateson is an accomplished graduate student whose doctoral thesis proves conclusively that the Templar treasure no longer exists. (Sorry Dan Brown). His well-researched theories and his comfortable lifestyle are challenged when he meets Susie, a university drop out who insists the treasure still exists because the Templar Knight who visits her dreams told her so.
