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

A retelling of the Beauty and the Beast story set in Scotland in 1761. Fun romp of a book with two quite likeable characters in Gwendolyn Wilder and Bernard "Dragon" MacCullough. Several of the other sideline characters were fun as well.
As you can guess this story is based off of beauty and beast.Life in Ballybliss has fallen on hard times. Fifteen years ago the laird and his family were murdered by Englishmen and nothing has really been right since then. Gwendolyn is a young woman who is trying to live by her virtue and take care ...
I don't know what I expected from this book, but I liked it. It was not exactly my type of book but it was written well with a very interesting storyline and characters.
