[BookStrand Historical Romance] She is Beauty, but is he the Beast?
Elfrida, spirited, caring, and beautiful, is also alone. She is the
"witch of the woods," and no man dares to ask for her hand in marriage
until a beast comes stalking brides and steals away her sister.
Desperate, the lovely Elfrida offers herself as a sacrifice, as bridal
bait, and she is seized by a man with fearful scars. Is he the beast? In
the depths of a frozen midwinter, in the heart of the woodland, Sir
Magnus, battle-hardened knight of the Crusades, searches ceaselessly for
three missing brides, pitting his wits and weapons against a nameless
stalker of the snowy forest. Disfigured and hideously scarred, Magnus
has finished with love, he thinks, until he rescues a fourth "bride,"
the beautiful, red-haired Elfrida, whose innocent touch ignites in him a
fierce passion that satisfies his deepest yearnings and darkest
desires. ** A BookStrand Mainstream Romance
