Roxie and her friend are in the Wulf’s Den having a girl’s night out and if the wall- to-wall, hot and good looking men are any indication, they're going to be having some fun.  Looking around the room, Roxie is a bit hesitant to meet the eyes of the men staring at her until she sees HIM.  Pure male and sin personified, the man that meets Roxie’s eyes takes her breath away, and she quickly and irreversibly falls under his spell.

Beowulf, yes THAT Beowulf, senses his mate is near.  Having searched and pretty much given up hope of ever finding the one true woman for him, the fact that she's near is enough to bring his inner wolf to the surface.  When Beowulf discovers she is human, his feelings and emotions are so deeply tied to this woman that no one will stand in his way. Not his family and certainly not hers.

All he has to do is convince her, and that might take some doing.

Beowulf and Roxie is nothing like the ode I read in high school.  With tales of monsters and foul mothers in my head, I sat back and thought surely I would know how this story would unfold.  Imagine my surprise when Marisa Chenery told a romantic tale of a man searching for his soul mate and finally finding her.  Obstacles stand in their path; her mortality is an issue.  Will that be overcome? Will they bond?

These questions and more were answered with this lovely book.  Their bonding was shiverlicious and the sex was heady.  It was enough to make me sweat.  Thumbs up Ms. Chenery on giving a new twist to an extremely old English tale.
