There seemed no hope to Pandora until the day the handsome knight, Drake, rode through her village on the way to a tournament. One night of finally fulfilling her aching needs, though, only seemed to make things worse, for Drake wasn’t nearly as resigned to his fate as she was.
Determined to break the curse if it was at all possible, Drake captured the vixen that had brought hell down on him and sought help in the magical forest. Unicorn and Dragon were all too happy to help, but when they discovered the curse still hadn’t been broken, they were forced to set off on a quest to track down the evil gnome and end it once and for all.
“The Curse of Pandora’s Box” was nothing like I expected. For lack of a better term, it was an erotic fairy tale. Ms. Acuna does an excellent job of drawing you into a world of enchanted forests, unicorns, dragons, and gnomes.
The characters and scenes were described in vivid detail. The reader can feel the anguish and the hunger that Pandora and the others who suffer from the curse have to endure.
How much sex can one mortal woman handle? There were a few too many sex scenes that pushed out the climax and made the book feel slow in the middle. And the scene with the gnome was just short of being rape.
Even with its few faults, “The Curse of Pandora’s Box” makes for an entertaining read.
