Princess Breena dreams of having a fairly tale love in her life with a warrior that haunts her dreams nightly. What she doesn’t count on is being ripped from her home when it is attacked. Now Breena has to find a way to survive the world that she has always been protected from and to find a way to get home and conquer the one that has taken her world and people over. Wandering and trying to find a safe place she comes across a cottage in the middle of a forest that just might offer her all that she is looking for and some things that she didn’t know she needed.

Osborn was a warrior and mercenary that gave up that life to live quietly in the forest with the simple pleasures he has there. Until the day Breena comes into his life and turns everything upside down and makes Osborn remember all that he is missing by cutting off the world around him. Now Osborn is going to have to decide if he wants to really start living again and give his princess the happy ever after she is looking for or doom them both to a life that is anything but happy.

Breena is determined that she isn’t going to be a helpless princess anymore and the only one that can teach her what she needs to know is Osborn now if she can just convince him of that. If Osborn wants to give his princess everything he feels she deserve he is going to have to help her learn to survive and fight the evil that is stalking her. Soon Osborn and Breena find that they only hope they have of surviving is go it together. They are also learning that the future they thought they wanted isn’t necessarily the one that is best one for them or now that they have met the one they truly do want. If they are to have a future together though they are going to have to find a way to conquer the evil that has taken over the land of Elden, Breena’s home.

This brings the fairy tale Goldilocks and the Three Bears to life in a way that isn’t the same fairy tale from childhood. The twist on this one makes the fairy tale fresh and will have the reader believing they are reading it for the very first time. This is the second story in a series of four books and while it can be read as a stand alone book it is greatly enhanced by reading the first book first. Readers won’t be disappointed in the series up to date and will be eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
