Dear Reader,

I'd been prowling the crumbling ruins of Castle Weyrcraig for so long that I could no longer remember if I was man or beast. Then one stormy night the superstitious Highlanders of Ballybliss decided to leave a helpless virgin bound to a stake in the castle courtyard to satisfy my insatiable appetites.

My demands might strike terror in the hearts of men, but this bold beauty dared to defy me. After she informed me that she didn't believe in dragons, I had no choice but to make her my prisoner—or risk being exposed to those I had sought to deceive with my dangerous masquerade.

Soon I found myself stealing into the moonlit tower just to watch her sleep. Little does she know that beneath this beast's gruff exterior beats the passionate heart of a man. Gwendolyn Wilder may not believe in dragons, but I intend to use all my sensual wiles to teach her to believe in something even more magical—true love.

Eternally yours,

The Dragon of Weyrcraig

If this was hell, she was about to meet its overlord.

Wouldn't it be more pleasant to think of yourself as a pampered pet?

If I woke up to find a rat that weighed nearly two stone sitting on my feet, I'd leap out the nearest window, too.

You once told me what I had to do to turn you from beast to man.

You still haven't learned how to properly thank someone for rescuing you, have you?

It is a must read for whoever loves a different verison on fairytales.

When poor virginal Gwen is sent as an appeasement to the Dragon that lives in the castle above her village, she does not know what to expect. But secretly she is glad to get away from her debauched village and slutty sisters. When she finds herself face to face with a devastatingly handsome man who promptly locks her in the tower, she doesn''t know what to expect next. It is for her heart to decide and for the laird of the castle to help her make up her mind. Gwen''s quick wit and the deliciously comic cast of characters make this book a delightful take on the traditional fairytale.
