The Forest Bride: A Fairy Tale with Benefits by Jane Buehler
Her fiancé was a monster. Her rescuer may be worse.
When Princess Rose is sold in marriage to a repulsive brute, only one person can save her—Prince Dustan, the suitor she hoped for, and the one her father didn’t choose. But Rose learns that Dustan harbors a secret: he may not be a prince… or human.
With nowhere else to turn, Rose follows Dustan into the forest. She hopes to hide from both her fiancé and her father. But can Rose trust Dustan? Or will his hidden agenda prove even more perilous than the marriage he helped her escape?
The Forest Bride is on the romance end of the fantasy-romance spectrum, with a hint of women’s fiction thrown in. If you’re a fan of Kerrelyn Sparks’s How to Love Your Elf or you’ve imagined an adult Ella Enchanted who has sex with Prince Charmont, The Forest Bride is for you.
Note: The Forest Bride contains sex scenes—if you don’t want to read sex scenes, there is a PG version available (ISBN 978-0-9778068-6-7).
Emily Jane Buehler published two nonfiction books—one on the science and craft of baking bread, the other a memoir of a bicycle trip from New Jersey to Oregon—before venturing into fiction. She currently writes light-hearted fantasy romances that focus on a protagonist finding her courage and happiness, as opposed to plots with a lot of fighting and darkness.
Emily lives in Hillsborough, where she can often be found walking or bicycling through town. Her favorite things include letters sent through the mail, Made-in-the-USA knee socks, and very dark fair-trade chocolate. She is passionate about living waste free and usually has several cats.
Emily writes romance using her middle name, Jane. Subscribe to her email list at https://janebuehler.com for news about new books and the chance to get advance review copies.
