Enter the Lair of Beasts and relive the romantic horror of this gothic adult "fairytale". And decide for yourself whether it's a Beauty and the Beast or Red Riding Hood retelling. Perhaps even a little of both...
  
 
  Aria is only a child of ten when she is hastily removed from her medieval village and her guardianship relinquished into the hands of a stranger from the north. 
  Although she is enforced to abide in their midst, in this land of harsh winters and fleeting daylight, she is afforded every luxury and treated as a daughter of the house. But there is an unmistakable darkness pervading the forest, as well as the ominous keep itself. Moreover, there's a tangible weave of secrets that has ever shrouded her new family, especially the unsettling and enigmatic man to whom she is betrothed -- Lucian.
  
  However, curiosity is too powerful a force to forbear, and it soon compels her into the woods to seek out the truth for herself...

  Disclaimer:
  This is currently undergoing editing! Beware: there are solecisms, including my awful punctuation, lurking on almost every page! Since I myself have never gone back in time to vacation in a medieval city, I will apologize upfront for any anachronisms and prochronisms - I'm sure there will be many.
  Please note that this novel is intended for mature audiences. There are disturbing scenes of violence within, as well as sexual content, although not graphic. Also, be advised that this story is set in a medieval world where woman's liberation is still pie in the sky! Having said that, I hope you understand that these were different times and women were indeed considered chattel back then. Reader discretion is advised.

Goose bumps! So creepy, it's powerful! An apt welcome song to set the mood. You're a genius!
Finally!!.....Thanks so much for doing this 
                              'Mine' is the greatest cliche in history of werewolf stories
Haha!  I love a writer with a good personality.  Excited to get started!
