Andalin is accustomed to her father’s frequent travels—and to being left behind. So when he returns home and instructs her to pack her belongings, she is bewildered—but there is no time for questions as she is whisked away on a mysterious journey under the cover of night.

When their tense flight leads them into the forbidding Black Forest, the pair quickly finds themselves in great peril. With little hope of escape, father and daughter are spared when rescue appears in the form of the mysterious Dark Rider, a notorious deadly highwayman feared by all he meets. But his assistance does not come without a price: he is taking Andalin with him.

Now her fate rests in the hands of the enigmatic masked man whose secrets are inescapably tied to the beautiful young woman now in his charge.

    This story is a nod to Beauty and the Beast. While it doesn’t follow the fairy-tale exactly it is obvious enough to see likenesses in it. But instead of having a mystical castle with enchanted servants the mystical part lays in the story of the witch and the dark forest. The servants are all normal humans that are loyal to their master. Things like that are stark differences that make the story Ms. Walker’s own instead of copying the fairy-tale.

    The story takes most of the book to unfold. There are secrets that the reader doesn’t get to know about before the reveal to the characters so I really couldn’t guess how it was all going to play out. Kept me wondering the whole time. I kept trying to guess the last secret and I was pretty much all wrong. The secret stayed a secret until it was revealed.

    There are multiple villains in the book and a number of side characters that added to the story. There could be additional books about some of those characters in the future. They were rounded out to be real people enough to make me want to see their happily ever after too. I can guess how things went for two of them but Miss Dubois is mysterious enough to have anything happen in her story.

    I enjoyed the story overall though I think I liked the hero better than the heroine. But I kinda find that to be the case in the fairy-tale too so it pretty much fits.

    Sex: kisses
    Language: no
    Violence: yes
    *I received a complimentary ARC of this book through Netgalley and voluntarily chose to review it.
