There is a dragon terrorizing the Highlands of Ballybliss. One night they decide to give their own dragon-doubting vigin Gwendolyn Wilder to the dragon to hopefully sate the dragon. And its amazing what a woman can do when she puts her mind to it, even if she is the prisoner of a dragon. So dont think that Gwendolyn is going down without a fight. I am sure you will love this book as I have.

This is one of Medeiros better books. I really liked the mystery of the "dragon" and she draws you into the story quite well! Stayed up way too late finishing it.

I think this is my favorite Teresa Medeiros book of the four I have read. It is marginally based on the beauty and the beast premise: the hero is posing as a dragon to scare his mid-18th century village into confessing to a terrible crime; the heroine a virgin given to the "dragon" as a sacrifice.

While I thought her family and the village treated Gwendolyn horribly and made you question why she would be at all loyal to them, Medeiros does establish an interesting heroine and a unique hero whom she never sees for the first half of the book.

The romance is nice, some steamy love scenes, a good secondary character in the mix. I liked that while Gwendolyn is only 24 years old, she is considered very long in the tooth, where most women (girls) are married in their mid-teens.
