Chosen to be one of the first to try an interactive experience for avid book readers, Mari jumps at the opportunity. She thinks she'll view the characters. She thinks she'll watch the story. She's wrong.
Mari is thrust into the new story as the lead. She has a new life, a new world, and new situations and yet somehow, she knows exactly what to do. When a barbarian insults her, instead of acting like her character, she strikes out as herself, changing the story irrevocably.
Forced to marry him, she soon realizes he might not be the ogre she'd envisioned him to be. Passion ignites between them and lust turns to something she hadn't counted on.
Time rushes by both in and out of the experience and soon her tale ends and her time is up. How can she walk away from the man who captured her heart?
