Five fairytales retold. They're not green with envy, only scorching stories for adult eyes only. You thought you knew them. You were wrong.
Lost and Found by Linnea Alexis
After Haley Monroe’s estranged husband drops dead, she discovers he left her with a whole lot of debt and most of her family heirlooms missing. Too bad the only person who can help sort through the mess and clear her name is her late husband’s attorney…her only one-night stand and a man she never thought she’d see again.
Attorney Eli Libertini jumps at the chance to help Haley clear up the financial mess. He’d like nothing more than to reconnect with his hookup from spring break ten years ago—the woman he’s never been able to forget.
“LOST AND FOUND was an ideal bedtime story with its cast of interesting characters, a sweet and sexy love story, and a suspenseful mystery that kept me guessing right up to the very end. It's a modern telling of Grimm's "Stolen Farthings" fairytale, and mingles themes of righting past wrongs, redemption, and second chances with some steamy romance. It's a satisfying read and I'll be watching for more stories from Linnea Alexis.” ~DeAnna Cameron
Slumber by Cassandra Dean
Upon decree from his king, Sebastian, Tailor to the entire kingdom of Dormiraa, embarks on the mission to fetch the Princess Thalia home, her seven year royal trip over. He didn't expect to find her working with clockwork and gears, encased within a coffin of glass. He did not expect the sight of her wild hair to set his heart to pound, or the flash of her dark eyes would heat his blood. He did not expect he would want her so badly, not when he could never have her.
“I am a huge fan of fairy tale retellings…when they are done as well as this one. I have a special place in my heart for Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty style tales, but I have to confess I prefer a strong feminine heroine which is not always the case in those stories. In this story the heroine is strong and knows what she wants, but also able to bend for love. The dichotomy of the strength and frippery of the tailor add to the pleasure of this story.” ~Dreamer2229
Bitten By Snake Oil by Shiloh Saddler
Since the death of his wife four years ago, blacksmith Jed Riker has been fighting his attraction to men. When sexy medicine-show man Peter Saint comes into Tumbleweed, Kansas, Jed buys his potion hoping for a cure, but receives vivid erotic dreams of the perfectly built salesman instead.
Jed uses all his strength and energy to fight the attraction in a town where the local preacher's hellfire and damnation sermons promise repercussions if he dares to act on them. Can Peter Saint's potions offer a solution and free the blacksmith to live and love as he wishes and not as his closed-minded neighbors demand?
“I really enjoyed this story. It was a rather quick read and lots of smoking hot sex between the two MC's! Definitely right up my alley. I liked Jed and Peter together, and thought the end with the Reverend was a bit much but still enjoyable. I will definitely be reading more from Shiloh Saddler in the future!” ~wickedwolvesanddreamingdragons
Saving Sultan by Jennah Scott
Dillon Sultan never imagined he might some day lose Sultan Ranch. He’s got one month to find the money needed to keep the bank from taking his family’s land. One month to find a miracle.
Liam Callahan hasn’t talked to his best friend since the night they kissed six years ago. Now he’s got a chance to make things right and catch the man of his dreams. But first, he has to help Dillon figure out a way to keep Sultan Ranch.
“I loved Jennah Scott’s retelling of the Brother’s Grimm tale “Old Sultan.” The original fairy tale, a very short but charming one, is about an old faithful dog that the farmer has deemed useless as the dog has lost his teeth and supposedly his ability to protect the household…One of those Grimm stories where “and then what happened?” doesn’t get answered, not here at least. These Beyond Fairy Tales published by Decadent are a great way to resolve that! I believe the underlying theme to Old Sultan is loyalty and the odd shapes and forms it can take yet remain the bedrock of so many relationships.” ~JA Matthews
Don’t Call Me Iron Man by N.D. Wylders
Once upon a time...there was this guy. A man who had an IQ out of this world and was arrogant enough to give the legendary Tony Stark a run for his money. He had everything he could ever want—a good job, more money than he knew what to do with, and all the sex he wanted—no strings attached. But that all changed on one fateful night...
“This is my first time reading N.D. Wylders’ writing I could not put this story down. There is action, adventure, hotter than sin dominates, and so much more in this story. I am a sucker for a great fairy-tale. This one is a twist on the Brothers Grimm story Iron John. Don’t Call Me Iron Man is an amazing must read story.” ~Redz
