    Hero is a Zero!!! What a Tool

    This book starts off good enough and has a clever plot in align with with our childhood favorite Rumplestilskin. I would like to warn that there will be some spoilers but I would be remiss if I didn't mention them as they are the reason this book received such low marks from me.
    Our fair young princess Arien is a "good witch" and her older sister Edana is a "bad witch" and in league with their father the evil king to ensnare our strong jawed,weak will,over sexed hero Dane. Dane HATES the Witches as they caused the death of his wife and infant son. Dane has every intention of killing the kings daughters until he encounters Arien. Of course he changes his mind and begins to see that mabey she is good and can be an ali. Soon there after Dane is seeking her out to save him from Edana. Edana wants to bed,trap,marry and eventually kill Dane.
    Throw in an ancient troll and you have a good story. To bad what happens next had to occur....
    #1.Dane our hero has a misteress back home with a six month old son. Yes yes I know that in those times it was common but my fantasies don't include men who entertain peasent misteresses that they have no intention of marring as they are beneath them and their station. Further more SEE what happens next
    #2.So in as our hero is actively pursuing our Chaste maiden repeatedly begging her for help they have a kissing encounter where she accidently brushes up against his "manhood" causing an immediate reaction. Then the evil sister puts him under her spell so she can "couple" with him in her room and be caught by the king and therefore forced to marry. Young and pure Arien saves the day by casting a spell on the sister and trys to take her place to make it "Look like" Dane and her are together only coupling actually takes place. Now our hero is all but screaming rape and Arien is forced by him to relinquish her magic.
    Honestly I couldn't go past page 191. I was sick to my stomach. There was no compasion for Ariel and Dane is a Tool!
