Craving Red - Rosalind Scarlett
Craving Red by Rosalind Scarlett is a very adult version of Red Riding Hood. The author pulls no punches when it comes to her descriptions of sex and there's plenty of that to go around, lashings of it, in fact. This reader enjoyed the author's vivid imagination and a different take on shape-shifters set in the snowy landscape of Sweden late eighteenth century.
Fair maiden Kaia is taken by wolves to their camp deep into dark woods of winter and held captive in a cage to a destiny unknown. There is no escape from her future as a child-bearer for the pack of werewolves. Her only chance is the strong, handsome Dane, who seems to have taken a shine to her beauty. Be prepared for some brutal scenes that may be too much for the squeamish, but keeping in mind this is fantasy erotica, those scenes illuminate the storyline to perfection. Just enjoy the tension as Kaia takes her punishment in the hope Dane will snap out of his fear of the Alpha and his degrading rules.
This is a no-holds-barred full-on erotic fantasy for all lovers of werewolves and sex in its purest state. I eagerly anticipate book #2.
FIVE STARS for this erotic fantasy and highly recommended.
