When she sees a man fleeing a horde of zombies, Nel Zapur has no choice but to extend a lifeline. But what will happen to her once Dane Prince reaches the tower’s top? Based on the Grimm’s fairy tale Rapunzel, Tower in the Woods is a post-apocalyptic thriller, complete with zombies, snipers, a fateful snowstorm and ... a hot, alpha male!

Raised by the Women’s Independent Territory Church (WITCH), Nel Zapur is a skilled sniper tasked to eliminate zombies. Never having once laid eyes on a man, she has been a prisoner in her tower for eleven long years. A fateful snowstorm leads a mysterious stranger to her window, and saving him may prove to be the best and worst decision of her life.

Special Agent Dane Prince was sent to gather intelligence on the WITCH, and his journey leads him to a mysterious tower in the woods. Snowed in with a virginal member of the feminist cult, Dane is determined to use the situation to his advantage. Not only will Nel provide him with the information he needs, she will also learn to submit to his every desire.

Nel Zapur has been locked up in the tower for 11 years. Ever since her 16th birthday where her "mother" decided she would be the best fit to go to the tower as her service to the WITCH. The organization that trained Nel from a young age to be a killer/protector for her people. But Nel is not nearly as gullible as the mother of the organization or her fellow recruits believe she is. With a brain capacity that relishes learning new things, and the capacity to be left alone for long periods of time she was the only choice. But that doesn't mean she ever wanted it. However when the first siting of someone who was not the mother comes into her rifle's lens she is trying to decide if she is to shoot or not to shoot. When the zombies come into the scene things become a little more intense which leads to Dane Prince. Dane Prince is on a mission. Get all the intelligence possible on the organization that is abducting young girls. Get information of WITCH so that the remaining government agents in New America can take the WITCH organization down and rescue the recruits. What wasn't his mission? It wasn't his mission to become so enamored with the sniper Nel, who incidentally was also a recruit of WITCH. This was a great read of approximately 100 pages. The chemistry between Nel and Dane was amazing, as was the plot line that leads to them being together. This story is a HEA. Just a heads up, this book does use bondage, but it is light. I would definitely recommend this story to all Quan lovers because it was yet another win.

Borrowing from the story of Rapunzel, Nel is locked in a tower and tasked with eliminating the zombie hoardes that are encroaching on the WITCH compound.  Kidnapped as a young child, and raised by a fanatical “prophet”, Nel believes that all men have been turned to zombies or are dead: perfectly acceptable as she was taught to believe that men are all evil killers with no redeeming features.   Dane is tasked with reconnaissance of the WITCH compound, so the feds can break up this feminist cult and recover kidnapped children.  When Nel spots him only minutes from becoming zombie food, she allows him entry into her tower by use of the zombie-hair rope.   Trapped for days because of the storm, Nel’s curiosity and Dane’s nature take over, and the two have sex. Repeatedly. With elements of domination, BDSM, and a very callous approach to ‘what it all means’, Dane marks Nel as his.  My problem with the story is completely with the character of Dane.  He isn’t particularly attractive in manner or approach: and while he does find he loves her, his approach is even more callous for its unfamiliar feel to him.  This was a capably penned story, not laden with zombies and mostly told from Nel’s point of view. It is, however, quite clever and the character of Nel manages to convey her unfamiliarity with the world at large, while having a large volume of book knowledge.  There is no real background on the “whys” of the formation of WITCH, aside from the maniacal leader, and furthering the story of the end of the compound is left untold.  While the zombies are frequently mentioned, their eradication is simple and quick, and no real details are provided.  This is only referential to the fairy tale, so if you are hoping for major integration this is not the story for you.   I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of honest review for the Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
