Lord Peter and Little Kerstin is collection of ancient Swedish narrative ballads translated into English verse. They tell stories of love and death, kings and knights, and the wild spirits of the water and the woods.
Scandinavian folk-ballads in the mediaeval style represented a huge treasury of oral tradition. A large amount of material was collected and written down over the years. This collection aims to bring some of these stories to a new audience, with new English verse translations of ten of the Swedish ballads. [close]

Hannah, a seventeen-year-old…more
Hannah, a seventeen-year-old werewolf, would rather be a peasant and free than dripping in jewels and wife to the tyrant werewolf king. Running from him will get her hunted, and most likely killed, yet she formulates a plan.
While sneaking around the castle, she encounters Eli, a handsome blond shape-shifter and slave to the king. Drawn to Eli as a fellow captive, she admires his courage and honor — qualities rarely seen amongst her own kind. With him, Hannah finds rare moments of joy in the place she's desperate to escape. Though she dreams of being with Eli forever, she knows he will never abandon his sister, another prisoner of the evil king.
Meeting in secret, Eli and Hannah's bond deepens as he trains her to protect herself. When she discovers the king’s scheme to murder her after their wedding, Hannah must choose between a short life and brief happiness with Eli or freedom and a future without him.
