"A delicious time travel fantasy romance"
Athena employs a special crystal to help her unhappy
brother professional wrestler "Saint" George Arlington
finds a modicum of contentment. George is not only
recovering from an injury, but frets over learning children
have been injured copying his vaunted finishing move.
Instead of just hypnotizing George into some sort of
harmonic trance, Athena sends her sibling back to medieval
England. George believes his sibling has mesmerized him so
when he meets Emoni it is easy for him to pledge that he
will slay the local dragon so that the villagers won't
annually sacrifice a virgin to keep the beast satiated.
He travels to the dragon's island where the caretaker
knocks George out, which leads to his incarceration by the
old crone who feeds the dragon. As a professional
wrestler, George can tell the crone is a beautiful young
woman in disguise. George fails on his first two attempts
to slay the dragon even as he fantasizes about his
hostess. To her chagrin Alizon is very attracted to the
weird outsider. Still if George survives his fight with
the dragon, will he convince Alizon that this is his
fantasy and in it they belong together?
Lisa Cach ingeniously takes a contemporary professional
wrestler and sends him back in time to fight a virgin
eating dragon. Anyone who reads the tale will know that
Ms. Cach is a brilliant innovator as this humorous time
travel tale succeeds because the story line never deviates
from not taking itself too seriously. Readers will relish
the professional wrestler seeking a "script" to fight the
dragon in this comedic romantic romp.
