Synopsis:
Journeying by steam-powered sled to London's Frost Fair to perform, Tara and three friends are trapped in a blizzard in the woods. A gruff, handsome stranger offers them shelter—and wants one thing in return. Stories.
The travellers are glad to oblige. Their host, Rolph, is especially captivated by Tara's story of an orphaned girl raised by the Fae in the world of the spirits. Equally intrigued by Rolph, and aware of an electric pull between them, Tara encourages him to share a story of his own. When Rolph weaves a tale of a man who is doomed by his own folly to turn into a wolf at the full moon, Tara suspects there is more than a grain of truth in his words.
When the veil between the mortal and spiritual worlds is parted, and danger threatens, will Tara make the ultimate sacrifice to save Rolph?

My Thoughts
This is a unique and spellbinding twist on a classic tale that romance lovers are sure to enjoy.
The setting was interesting and there was a lot of descriptive imagery. I liked how the setting helped the readers to get into the moods of the story.
Tara is a bright and kind woman who has a knack for weaving tales. I highly enjoyed reading about her and discovering more about her and the other characters as well.
Rolph is mysterious and a bit of a storyteller himself. I liked his character a lot and enjoyed seeing how his relationship with Tara developed throughout this novella.
I highly recommend this story to anyone who loves the tale of Beauty and the Beast!
