George the Virgin Author:Lisa Cach Beware of the Dragon... — The medieval village of Markesew was besieged, its virgins demanded in tribute, so when St. George the Dragonslayer arrived from modern times -- in his silver pants and lace-up boots -- his quest was clear. Being a professional wrestler didn't qualify him for the task, but a sword and imagination were all he needed... or... more » so he thought, until he came up against the mysterious mistress of Devil's Mount.
Or the Maiden?
Twelve years ago Alizon had been sent to die in the jaws of the serpent. Too tough for dragon teeth then, she'd never surrender to some foreigner in shiny hose now. She feared first for the secret world she'd built atop her mountain... but as the hero approached, Alizon realized it was not the dragon's armor he had come to pierce, but the scales around her own ferocious heart.« less
George is put into a hypnotic state by his sister and goes back in time. He's just read a book by Karl Jung, so tries to psychoanalize the meaning of the various characters in his "fantasy". I laughed out loud several times as this gentle giant of a man slowly comes to realize that his fantasy is reality.
I got the book for the unusual plot line of a pro-wrestler landing in medival times. Told mostly from the guys perspective, it was still a story that had me reading till 3:30am when hubby got up for work......
This book was ok, cute but not really absorbing. Good premise but not much of a story line. The Hero was very funny, the herione a little boring, and very little to no action. Promising start, little disapointing after that though..
