    1. When Beauty and the Beast is set in Scotlandd the rose is not what it seems.I love our heroine, Bonnie! She keeps the same sweetness as the original Belle with a fresh vulnerability brought on by the guilt of feeling she's let down her family. The love between family here is all so heart-warming and real. The historical feel of the times is very authentic, the mood flowing from chilling to cozy, the writing lovely and loving.Really, this is just the most beautiful retelling of the beloved classi [...]



    2. I was excited to read this, because I've been following Hayden's blog(s) for a looong time. So when I heard it was free on Kindle, I uploaded it immediately and read it in one day. :-)What I liked:1. Hayden, your writing is incredible! I was sucked in the story, and the old Gaelic style captivated me. It was very fairy-tale like, and beautifully written. Congratulations, and all that. :-)2. I loved Bonnie, and I even loved the Beast, in the end. I don't normally love the Beast, so that says a lo [...]


    3. Gorgeously told Beauty and the Beast retelling. Well paced, rich characters, sweet love, historically detailed and rife with old folklore but all ending too abruptly, loose ends not tied up and a climax that felt very one dimensional compared to the rest of the story. Sigh but still one of the best B&B retellings I've read thus far.


    4. Decent story. Enough to keep the reader wanting to carry on and keep them interested. Detail was good, as was the plot- albeit rather slow to develop. I could certainly see echoes of the 'Beauty and the Beast' fairytale it was meant to be based on- just not entirely sure it would make a favourite retelling of mine. One reason I think I was interested in the story is because I saw added to a list I created of 'Medieval Christian Fiction'- but quickly realized it was not Medieval- its set in the m [...]


    5. The Wulver's Rose by Hayden Wand is a short, sweet retelling of the Beauty and the Beast story, available for FREE as an e-book on . It is also one of five Beauty and the Beast retellings that can be found in the collection entitled, "Five Enchanted Roses".I had already wanted to read the "Five Enchanted Roses" collection, but hadn't had the money to get it, so when I heard that one of the stories was being made available for free, I was more than happy to check it out. I really liked this story [...]


    6. Frankly, I just loved this story. The writing was superb, the characters were laced with rich simplicity, and the retelling was clever. It was different. It was an unexpected retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast, and yet it felt classic, holding all the qualities of a good fairy tale. The romance felt deeper. The love felt truer. To sum up once more, I just loved THE WULVER'S ROSE. Definitely worth reading. :)


    7. Less BoringnessI did not like the way it took forever to get to the main part of the story. It was only good when the Beast came into the story. Overall the book was okay. But not all that.



    8. A jealous witch, a brokenhearted man, and a scared little girl set the stage for this tale. Each walks away physically different. Many years after their confrontation, Bonnie comes into the scene. When she was young, her family lost everything, and she assumed the guilt for it. Right when that happened, she also started having odd dreams and visions that were always the same. So, when her father comes back from a trip telling about how he angered a wulver at his castle (which Bonnie had dreamed [...]


    9. This is the fifth story from the Five Enchanted Roses anthology, and it is my favorite! The Wulver's Rose is a historical retelling of Beauty and the Beast by Hayden Wand. The story is set in Scotland in the 1600s and 1700s. One of the last witches of the world has cursed Lauchlan, her former brother-in-law, and his daughter to be trapped in the forms of a wulver (half-human, half-wolf) and a rosebush. Nearly a century passes, and her curse will soon result in their complete destruction. At abou [...]


    10. Overall, The Wulver's Rose wasn't bad- granted, it wasn't amazing either; it sits solidly in the middle, and can only be called "okay."There are only so many ways you can retell a classic fairytale, and a lot of the story followed Rose Daughter, by Robin McKinley, almost word-for-word. Now, I don't know if that's because they both closely followed the original telling of Beauty and the Beast (as I've never read it), or what. I was just getting a very strong sense of deja vu.As it is, the story i [...]


    11. I thought this was one of the best Beauty and the Beast retelling's I have ever read. I'm not a huge fan of fairy tale retelling's as they are so predictable. The writing in this story however, was beautiful and I loved the path that the author chose to take with this story. Great characters, great time periodI have no complaints about the book whatsoever and I highly recommend it.


    12. This is a bowl of fresh strawberries, blueberries, an the occasional raspberry thrown in. My point? It's a charmingly sweet read that's guilt free! Most everyone plays nice and it's quite lovely. Great work!


    13. This was a pretty good book. I will say that the relationship between Bonnie and Lauchlan developed a bit awkwardly. It felt a little stilted at times, but it was a short story so it's understandable. Overall, it was a sweet and short read.


    14. An interesting take on Beauty and the Beast but it added more than it embellished. It was interesting that this author knew the original and used it. You can tell when an author is retelling Disney's version not Villinuve or Beaumont's. A good tale but not wow.


    15. Beauty and the BeastProbably my favorite of all fairy tales. Beauty and the Beast captured me before I was ten. I the was. lovely retelling of the story. I know,I will read it again and look for other titles by this author.


    16. Beauty and the beastRetelling of Beauty and the Beast . Well written, fast read beautiful story of love. One of my favorite fairytales



    17. GreatLovely retelling of beauty and the beast but set in the Highlands of Scotland. A jealous sister in law whom Dibbles into ol druid magic curses her brother in law and niece .


    18. A lovely "Beauty and the Beast" retelling set in Scotland, sweet and classic in style, and beautifully written. Ideal for any lover of fairy tales, and appropriate for 12 and up.
