Overview

She’s on the hunt for a hero…

Luke Trenton, Viscount Merritt, returned from war a changed man. Battle stripped away his civility and brought out his inner beast. There is no charm or tenderness in him now; only dark passions and a hardened soul. He has nothing to offer the starry-eyed, innocent girl who pledged her heart to him four years ago.

But Cecily Hale isn’t a girl any longer. She’s grown into a woman—one who won’t be pushed away. She and Luke are guests at a house party when a local legend captures their friends’ imaginations. While the others plunge into the forest on a wild goose...er, stag chase, Cecily’s on the hunt for a man. She has only a few moonlit nights to reach the real Luke…the wounded heart she knows still beats inside the war-ravaged body…or she could lose him to the darkness forever.

This is a novella of approximately 20,000 words, or 80 pages. It was originally published under the title The Legend of the Werestag.

This story was a joy to read. Well written with a touch of myth as the white werestag appears to Cecy and speaks to her. I can recommend this book highly. L.M.A.

PERFECT NOVELLA! Yes, it is short, but has HEA, and that is satisfying - plus the lovemaking is above mild. It isn't page after page of sex, but just the right amount to feel their passion. Romance builds slowly, their isn't a cliffhanger. It is really about a man who returns from the war and suffers from PTSD, of course there wasn't a man for it back then, and the women who loves him, who has waited for him for 4 years. He feels he doesn't deserve her, because of the man he has become. It is their journey to finding HEA. (ljb)

Would have gotten a higher rating if it were longer, however it was a touching love story and shows us that PTSD existed way back in 1815. Cecily's love pulls Luke through. I believe the Warestag is symbolic and fits right in.

I thought this was a very good book and written well. It was an enjoyable way to spend my afternoon and the story line was great. I even found myself thinking about the book well after I read it.

The sex scenes just seemed nasty and classless - not romantic. Silly plot.

This is a 60 page short regency story that shows how love conquers the demons of PTSD.

This is a great short story. There's a touch of the Gothic with the legend of the werestag (man who turns into a deer), but the real story is how Cecily has waited all these years for Luke to come home from the war. Surely that last kiss meant that he loved her? However, he thinks he's far too damaged to be a good match for Cecily, but she is determined not to let him get away again.
