A Fate Worse Than Dragons

There’s only one thing scarier than slaying a giant, fire-breathing dragon . . . slaying the wrong giant, fire-breathing dragon.

Sir Terry knows that as a valiant (but solidly middle-class) knight he doesn’t have a chance of winning the beauteous Princess Gloria’s hand in marriage . . . unless he kills the dragon on the far edge of the kingdom and claims her as his reward.

But Prince Charming never had to contend with re-zoning. After Terry defeats the dragon, he discovers he has slain the scourge of the kingdom next door. He’s still won a princess. Unfortunately, she’s nicknamed “Crazy Jane” for her habit of talking to dead animals.

Luckily for Terry, Princess Gloria wants to give him another chance, and she arranges for him to save her from a fake kidnapping. Rescuing a damsel who’s not actually in distress ought to be easy, but events soon take a dangerous turn. No matter what, Terry must save Gloria. Because everyone knows that getting stuck with the wrong girl is truly a fate worse than dragons . . .
