This is no fairy tale...
Haunted by nightmares of a black dog, sick to death of my mind-numbing career and heart-numbing fiancé, I impulsively walked out of my life--and fell into Faerie. Terrified, fascinated, I discover I possess a power I can't control: my wishes come true. After an all-too-real attack by the animal from my dreams, I wake to find myself the captive of the seductive and ruthless fae lord Rogue. In return for my rescue, he demands an extravagant price--my firstborn child, which he intends to sire himself...
With no hope of escaping this world, I must learn to harness my magic and build a new life despite the perils--including my own inexplicable and debilitating desire for Rogue. I swear I will never submit to his demands, no matter what erotic torment he subjects me to...

Couldn't stop reading this!
Dr Jenifer McGee is a scientist. She is having nightmares with a black dog chasing her. She doesn't believe in love or in her relationship with her present boyfriend Clive. She, however, does believe in empirical evidence, not dreams or magic.
One day logic deserts her. She leaves a party and just keeps on going. She finally stops at Devil's Tower and decides to rest a day or two and later take a hike around it.
On impulse she does a crazy thing, like cutting her hand and hair and then tying the bloody hair onto a tree. As if by magic, she tumbles into a new world where her name is Gwynn. Here in Fairy world, her nightmare black dog lives and is the man of her dreams.
Rogue is a Fae and he draws her to him through her world into his. He loves her but she won't admit she cares for him. He entices her with sex and power but shows her obedience and cruelty. She does not understand why. He chases her through fae wars and adventures but she will have nothing to do with him.
I enjoyed all the characters and the jaunt into another world, a world of make believe as seen through the author's eyes. It is a different slice of passion with a very determined handsome rogue and a not-to-be-intimidated heroine who will not cower or be defeated.
This book is an incredible journey, making me love the dark and enchanting world of the fae.
