The one who needs rescuing isn’t always the one in the tower.

Rapunzel can throw a knife better than any man around. And her skills as an artist rival those of any artist she’s met. But for a woman in medieval times, the one skill she most desires is the hardest one to obtain: the ability to read.

After yet another young man asks for Rapunzel’s hand in marriage, Mother decides they need to move once again, but this time to a larger city. Rapunzel’s heart soars—surely there she can fulfill her dream. But Mother won’t let her close to a man. She claims that no man can be trusted.

After being rescued by a knight on the road to the city, and in turn rescuing him farther down the road, Rapunzel’s opportunity arrives at last. This knight, Sir Gerek, agrees to educate Rapunzel in order to pay back his debt. She just has to put up with his arrogant nature and single-minded focus on riches and prestige.

But this Rapunzel story is unlike any other and the mystery that she uncovers will change everything—except her happily ever after.

  1. Awesome! Thank you Carol for sharing my new cover! 🙂
    Forgive me if I’m being nit-picky, 🙂 but The Merchant’s Daughter is Beauty and the Beast and The Healer’s Apprentice is Sleeping Beauty. 🙂
    Thanks again! 🙂 And I’m so, so happy you liked The Huntress of Thornbeck of Forest! Thanks for writing reviews! Authors really do appreciate it and it is very helpful!


  2. Thanks, Melanie — I fixed those descriptions. I was doing too many things at once!!! Look for the review on THE HUNTRESS OF THORNBECK FOREST to be up in the next week or two. I’ve written the first draft, but I have to let it set for a few days and get some other reviews up for a blog tour next week. Carol
