What if the fairy tales were not only real, but had it all wrong? Come meet a Big Bad Wolf like you’ve never seen before.

Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

When Natalia rents a holiday cottage she is looking for peace and quiet. A place to reassess her life and recover from her failed relationship. Instead, she finds a man who turns her world upside down.

However, people and things are not as they seem, and Natalia begins to discover that legends are real and fairy tales have a basis in reality. As she grows closer to the enigmatic Damian, she finds herself tested as danger and passion go in hand in hand, and everything she thought she knew about the world will be questioned.

After years of waiting Damian had given up hope that he would ever meet his destined mate, and he certainly never expected her to be a sassy American who had no idea that his world even existed. Can he convince Natalia to believe in the impossible, and more importantly, can he protect her from those who seek to destroy his people?

 

Review: Scarlett Legacy is a very fun and exciting twist on the children’s story Little Red Riding Hood. This is by far one of the best short stories I have ever read!

First of all, I’m a huge fan of remakes but it is very hard to perfect them. Shelli Rosewarne has done an amazing job at capturing and remaking The Little Red Riding Hood. It is hard to believe this book is only 116 pages long because the story is so full of romance, action and tells the full story with complete detail.

Natalia begins as a broken character. After a rough experience between her and her now ex-boyfriend, she simply tries to escape her normal life when she meets Damion. He is a strong, sexy alpha male. The description given of the characters and setting paints a realistic and beautiful picture for readers. Natalia gets much stronger as the story goes on. By the end, she completely transforms from a broken, weak character into a fierce, confident one.

There are a few editing errors but they are simple and easily forgivable. I also had a few questions that went unanswered but it did not effect my feelings toward this story. All in all, it was a great story. I’ll never hear the children’s nursery rhyme again and not think about Scarlett Legacy.

Favorite Quote: “I’m the Big, Bad Wolf, my dear. Don’t ever think otherwise. ”
