Josette is sold by her father to his mortal enemy. She is sure this means the end of life as she knows it. Prepared for horror and torture at the hands of her captor, she is surprised when all he does is lock her away. Marrok was once a revered knight until he betrayed his king. Now he suffers the curse of being a werewolf. With the chance to take revenge on his enemy, he arranges for the purchase of the king's daughter. When he finds himself falling for her, will he remain true to his original intent or release her? I love these Naughty Fairy Tales by Evernight Publishing. Each one is more fun to read than the last and all of them are based on a fairy tale, loosely or otherwise. The amount of steaming hot romance the authors manage to pack into these short stories is wonderful. In this particular story, Ms. Medina manages to entrance with a story of revenge and redeeming love. The characters are both equally torn by duty and their dueling emotions. Against their will, the love that Ms. Medina writes about triumphs over all. The passion is clearly felt and fairly leaps off the page. I was sucked into the story and entranced until the final page.

Be Warned: anal sex, bondage, forced seduction.
He let his hand come down on her over and over again. She gripped the ropes with her hands, but she didn’t struggle anymore. She might not be able to sit for a week, but somehow she didn’t care. A moan escaped her lips before she could stop it.
In the Wolf’s Tower is a romantic tale of trust and love, and despite the fact that it is an erotic, naughty fairytale, it is heartwarming, too. Marie Medina has done a great job incorporating romance and a range of emotions into Josette and Marrok’s tale. The plot is entertaining, the characters are memorable, and the setting is very interesting. A very enjoyable read!
I have always been a lover of fairy tales: Cinderella, Snow white and of course my favorite, Beauty and the Beast. So imagine my delight when I read the first page of In the Wolf’s Tower and discovered that it was actually a take on Beauty and the Beast. This book is part of the Naughty Fairy Tales series which in itself is intriguing. Princess Josette has been sold to Lord Marrok by her father, the King, for a large amount of gold. Josette thinks she is to become Lord Marrok’s wife, but he quickly tells her he has no intention of marrying her. However, he's fascinated by her spirit and lack of fear since he's known as the Wolf, and has been known to scare anyone who dares to cross his path. Josette has resigned herself to her fate and Lord Marrok doesn't know quite what to make of her. I really enjoyed this story, the banter between the two characters was refreshing and the author gave you enough background on these two that they soon felt like old friends. Lord Marrok was the Wolf, he's lived alone for some time after being cheated on by his first wife, then cursed to live his life as an actual wolf. This reader soon realized he had issues trusting and expected Josette to be a pampered princess he could torment. Josette knew his reputation but it did not scare her in the least. She was fascinated by him and the more she got to know him the more she wanted him. I also soon understood why he picked Josette and why her father, the King, thought nothing of selling her to him. There was also another character in this tale that looked out for Josette, Rumpelstiltskin the cat. He would find gold coins and jewels and give them to her. Josette being a princess and untouched, was introduced to sex by Marrok gently and I liked that the author showed that side of the character. There was light bondage and spanking but it enhanced the story and helped me understand the characters even more. In the Wolf’s Tower was short but it did not lack or leave this reader wanting. It would have been nice to have a few more chapters but I found this short to be very satisfying and entertaining.
Josette has no idea what to expect when her father trades her for gold. Lord Marrok has a fearsome reputation. Once an honored knight, he is now cursed to become a wolf as midnight approaches. Marrok blames Josette's father for his life and believes that he will hurt the man by taking his only daughter. But Josette is nothing like he imagined. His plans for revenge are thwarted by an innocent young woman so different from the wife who cursed him. Can Josette win the heart of the werewolf who looks at her with such distrust but also such lust and need? This is a very enjoyable afternoon diversion. It’s short enough to read in one sitting, the author packs a sexy, intriguing tale into a small package. The images are erotic, with a slight bit kink to fan the flames. With snippets of a familiar fairytale, Ms. Medina creates something naughty and enjoyable. Marrok and Josette have great chemistry both in and out of bed. This book has a nice flow to the plot and great dialogue. I'll be adding this author to my favorites list. I'm going to have to check out the other 'Naughty Fairy Tales' too.
