My redonk nutshell makes no damn sense. Â *snort* Â This novella by one of my favorite AUTHORS OF ALL TIME!!!!, Tessa Dare, was a short and sweet, though fluffy and short lived. Â Contrary to the paranormal-sounding title, this is a regency romance that flirts with Gothic themes.
Cecily Hale is heartbroken over her spurned affections for her friend and love, Luke Trenton. Â He recently returned from war, and after waiting for him for several years, Cecily is more than ready to declare her love for him. Â Except he doesn’t return it. Â While the two of them and several of their friends stay at a large estate, they go out into the estate’s woods in search of a fabled “were-stag”, a half man half stag that is reported to enchant the forest. Â Cecily breaks off on her own and has a run in with a boar, but is saved by what seems to be a man that came out of no where.
If you’re looking for a romantic tale that will fully engross and enchant you, skip The Legend of the Werestag. Â It’s a lovely little tale, but nothing awesome to write home about.
Romance: 1/5 Â Â Â Raunch: 3/5
