    Each ‘tale’ is fascinating and will make a good first chapter to a full book.
  • Really good.

    Interesting stories with great characters. The stories were all different even though all the characters met at the ball for Tinsley Constantine. Some are darker than other but they were all good.
  • Enjoyable

    Beauty and the Beast by Willow Winters This modern short story of Beauty and the Beast retelling had the essence of the original story, but Willow Winters’ version of a crime family delivered a very dark, different, and enthralling tale of beastly wrath and blooming love. I love retelling of fairy tales and this one had me hooked right away from the start—a beast lurking in the dark corners. Callum Harris is fearless, epitome of dominance—the beast of all beasts. Anabelle is a beautiful woman, and her father owes Callum money. Anabelle is also a woman who can see beyond the beast’s mangled face. Will Anabelle be used as a pawn to repay her father’s debt? What will happen between the Beast and the Beauty? Beauty and the Beast had me hooked from the first sentence, and as soon as I finished reading, I was depressed that it was over. If you are a lover of retellings, dark romance, and a courageous heroine, then this is the book you do not want to miss.
  • So steamy!

    So steamy! The modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast is filled with angst and all sorts of heat. It’s short, but an updated version of the fairytale for sure!
  • Amazing!!

    Amazing anthology of classic fairy tales with a darker twist. I particularly enjoyed Skye Warren’s contribution on the tale of King Midas. Raoul Midas is a genius as a businessman. He eschews love and only enjoys escort type services. Anita needs money to help raise her sisters. When Raoul hires her he wants more. Great quick, darkly romantic read.

    5 DARK FAIRY STARS FOR KING THRUSHBEARD BY CORA REILY!! The same essence and magic all Cora’s books have, that special something that drawn us to her one of a kind world, is completely the main element in King Thrushbeard; Gigi and Dark are the perfect match. That feeling you get when reading a Cora Reily book, is every present in this novella. Skye Warren, Celia Aaron, Sierra Simone, Karina Halle, C.J. Roberts, Willow Winters, Marley Valentine, Cora Reily, Natasha Knight, Aleatha Romig, T.M. Frazier; Amazing authors that created a magic fairy dark world. You know the fairy tales, where the princess ends up with the prince and they run into the sunset happily ever after??? Well this is not it; just like the preface…sometimes you’ll end up falling for the villain… and in this amazing anthology you have your pick of villains to fall for. This anthology is just the shadow of the monster that lurks in the dark, the dark that lures/calls you and you can’t resist. Every single short novella in this anthology traps you into a new dark romance world, believe me when I say if all anthologies are like this one, I’ll gladly sell my soul to the devil!!
  • Smoking hot, well written quick reads!

    ~The Fairest by TM Frazier (3.8 stars) Chase Huntington III is rich and can have anything but he has a dark side and it wants to come out to play! When he is hired to eliminate someone’s competition, things might not go as planned. Neve Blanca wants something darker than the other girls. Her wish just might come true! This is a modern-ish, dark retelling of a red lipped, raven haired darling. Told in dual POV ~”Swan princess” By Natasha Knight (5 Stars) Salvatore Benedetti stars in this dark retelling. A costume ball and a forbidden girl by the name of Lucia who at midnight belongs to him! A great short story, prequel of the Benedetti Brothers Mafia Series book 1. Told in dual POV ~“Beauty & The Beast” By Willow Winters (4 stars) Calum Harrison wants his debt paid & he wants Annabelle Belle to repay it. They meet at the masarade ball and he won’t take no for an answer. What will become of this beauty and her beast? A clever dark modern twist to a classic. Told in dual POV
