Summary

A twisted, tangled, romantic retelling of the fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood

Lord Hugh de Bar, known as Wolf, has been cursed and shapeshifts into a wolf at night. He vows to kill the man responsible for his torture, Earl Roland Chaserton of Tavistock, but the man has avoided this confrontation by staying locked away in his castle in hiding. But when the man's granddaughter appears in the woods alone at night, Wolf realizes he can take her captive to lure the earl out of hiding so he can kill him. However, he needs to proceed with caution since the girl is armed with a crossbow and skilled at killing wolves - and also very alluring.

Lady Winifred (Red) Chaserton has defied her grandfather's orders and sneaked out of the castle to investigate a mysterious hidden door in a knoll that she's seen on one of the hunting trips with her grandfather's knights. Alone in the dark and without an escort, she has only her crossbow to protect her. But when she feels she's being followed by a wolf, the handsome lord of Babeny appears to protect her instead. She is intrigued by the presence of Lord Hugh de Bar, and lets down her guard. However, things aren't always as they seem, and when she's taken captive by him she realizes there is more to this dark lord than meets the surface. He says he despises her for killing wolves and being the granddaughter of his archenemy, yet his eyes tell her a different story. His gaze devours her - and she feels like he wants to eat her.

Will magical forces come between a lady and a wolf, or bring them together instead? And will the de Bar family finally find redemption from the dark magic that has been bestowed upon each of the siblings and brought turmoil into their lives?

lady and the wolf

This book is a tale of Red Riding Hood. It is a shape shifter book where the Lord of the Manor turns into a wolf at night. The granddaughter of the Lord of the Castle had wandered into the forest
When she met the Wolf who was then going to kidnap her so that her grandfather would come looking for her and he could kill him as he believed that the grandfather had killed his family and cursed the Manor and its inhabitants. Of course it was not as he believed. The narration was excellent and the story is a fantastic grown up edition of Red Riding hood. Miss Rose, thank you very much.

Red Riding Hood with a twist

I was keen to see what the Author would do with these stories. It was certainly interesting and I was pleased to see characters who made appearances in other series. Now to see what the rest of this series is like.

A unique retelling

A fun and unique retelling of Little Red Riding Hood... the narration was well-done! A great length (just make sure to put your headphones on for the bedroom scene if children are present 😉).

Wolf

Lady and the Wolf is the first of the Tangled Tales. It is a creative, sort of sexy variation of Little Red Riding Hood. This first tale of the unfortunate Family de Bar features twins Hugh and Arnon, who are now, compliments of Hecuba, wolves. Those living in the neighboring castle relentlessly pursue them and the other wolves in the forest near their home. One of the hunters from Tavistock Castle is the Earl’s granddaughter, Lady Winifred Chasterton (she has a red cloak). Once they meet, Hugh (a shifter) and Winifred discover that things are not what they seem. This tale is a puzzle with misconceptions to clear up, mysteries to be solved, and curses to be broken. There might even be romance in the air. The story is twisted and tangled. The characters are all present and weirdly similar to those in the original fairytale. An entertaining story brought to life by Brian J. Gill’s wonderful narration.

A cute twist on Little Red Riding Hood. Magic and intrigue are blended to give this child's fairy tale an adult flavor.

Lady and the Wolf — a Tangled Tale

Elizabeth Rose is known for using well known fairy tales and giving them her own twist. She calls the series Tangled Tales ---a kind of re-telling of the stories with a grown-up perspective, romance and fun.

Lady and The Wolf, Book 1 of the Tangled Tale Series, is based on Little Red Riding Hood. Lady Winifred “Red” Chaserton is a princess longing for danger and passion. “Wolf” is Lord Hugh de Bar. He and his brother Arno have been cursed. Hugh can shape shift to a wolf, but Arno is permanently a wolf. Hugh blames Earl Roland Chaserton for killing his parents and the curse. He vows to kill him.

Red discovers a mysterious hidden door deep in the forest. She sneaks out of the castle one night to find out who inhabits it. As wolves, Hugh and Arno follow her. Wolf realizes Red is Chaserton’s granddaughter and decides to capture her to lure the Earl into the forest. After shifting back, Red sees Hugh as a handsome lord --- dark and dangerous! But the wolf is not the villain in this story. There is magic, romance, a surprise and a quirky ending. I won an Audible version of Lady and the Wolf. I really enjoyed listening to the story!

Very Entertaining.

A fun story by this author. Full of mystery, a romance with a shape shifter, a man who isn’t at all who you think he is and a witch who craves the beauty of her youth. Great fun.
Narrator Brian J. Gill does a really nice job performing this story. I love the craggy old voice of the witch. I highly recommend this book.
