Castle of the Wolf
Sandra Schwab

Reviewed by Morgan Chilson
Posted April 6, 2007

Mystery Psychological | Romance Paranormal

Cissy Fussell can't leave her home fast enough after her father's death. Looking ahead to years as her sister-in- law's Cinderella-type slave makes her desperate for any way out. Thankfully, she learns that her father gave her that way out when he left her a castle in the Black Forest that she didn't even know he owned. Even the stipulation attached -- that she marry the son of his old friend who lives there -- doesn't scare her off. Anything is better than dealing with Dorinda.

Well, almost. Fenris von Wolfenbach isn't exactly a bachelor who makes girls swoon. Since his return from the war, he's isolated himself in the castle and not until Cissy's arrival does he know it no longer belongs to his family. The only answer is to scare the young lady away. Rats are an option, certainly. But there's a slight possibility that Cissy may just tame her beast.

Another thoroughly enjoyable tale from Ms. Schwab. I'm a fan of the good old fairytales being rewritten because their storylines are golden. Excellent characterization and dialogue dominate this well-done historical romance.

SUMMARY

After the death of her father, Cissy Fussell finds out that she has inherited a castle in the Black Forest - but on one condition: she has to marry the son of her father's old friend.

Ever since he returned home from the war, physically and emotionally wounded, Fenris von Wolfenbach has lived in the castle of his family, retired from the world like the beast in the fairy tale. Thus he is far from happy when one day a young Englishwoman turns up on his doorstep and claims his home as hers. Fenris is prepared to use any means fair or foul to get rid of his unwelcome visitor again. But will he manage to put Cissy to flight with rats on the loose? Or will she unravel the secrets of the Castle of Wolfenbach and eventually tame her beast?
