Shunned by superstitious villagers, Teleri of the Woods learned early that the world is a frightening place. For years she has lived hidden away in a dark forest, where her only friends are the creatures of the woods. But when she finds a gravely wounded knight, her sanctuary is safe no more. With his legendary skills in war and diplomacy, Roger FitzAlan had been sent to establish a stronghold on the Welsh borderlands. Ambushed and left to die by an unknown enemy, Roger must now battle for more than his life -- he must win the trust and love of the wild young woman who has every reason to fear him. Roger knows he cannot live in Teleri's world, and she is afraid of his. Once he recovers, Roger is determined to find the one who tried to kill him. And Teleri must choose whether to stay secluded with a broken heart -- or to trust this powerful warrior who has threatened all she holds dear. Together they journey to a place where duty is everything, where a man's honor -- not his heart -- must guide him. There, amid the dangerous secrets of the past, they will risk everything in search of a love that is forever.

I actually enjoyed the whole series, though I read them in backwards order, so some of it was a bit disorienting to me. The heroine's a bit of a barefooted hippie (complete with a bit of a "free love" attitude, despite her innocence), the hero (thinks he) is in love with another (married) woman, the...
(★★★½) Sweet & light-hearted, with a little steam and paranormal twist. Interesting nod to Arthurian legend. :)
I loved this one. Although not based on a fairy tale, WILD has a beautiful, very romantic, fairy-tale feel to it. The heroine, shunned by the town because they fear she's a witch, lives in a tiny isolated shack and spends her time caring for wounded beasts. When she stumbles across an injured man (w...
