Romance and Adventure in this retelling of Robin Hood set in the world of fae, witches, and humans.
“We just discussed how I don’t enjoy putting my nakedness on display for just anyone,” she laughed. “Besides, I don’t wish to shock our friends. Seeing a waddling beast with her breasts sagging and her middle bulging just might make Will or Jules fall over dead from fright. Not to mention the education we’d be giving our younger companions.”
Zane tread water even closer now, his head angled at her in contemplation. His nearness made the temperature of the water around her elevate. “You’ve heard many times how beautiful you once were, Mirayna. So many people lament the scar on your face. That chipped tooth,” he told her, raising a hand to press against her mouth. “But you should know that you look beautiful even now, round and fat, sagging breasts and all. If Jules—or anyone—fell over dead at the sight of you, it’d be from being overcome by your beauty. Never doubt that.”
“I am Edward of Wellen, nothing more than a poor lord’s son. My father died for refusing to support Lochley long before he made his bid for king. I was imprisoned, too, in the pits of Friest so the prince could claim my lands.” He angled his head sharply, revealing a jagged scar along his jaw that arced down his neck where it disappeared beneath his shirt. “I met the blade of a Guardian, felt the sting of a Purger’s whip. Now…” he squeezed his fist and a few drops of blood oozed between his fingers. “I swear my fealty and loyalty to you, Lady Mirayna, mother to the future heir. Whatever happens, I shall remain loyal to you in the fight against the male who would try and steal the throne.”
And his declaration was not the last. One by one, the males all stood before her, Little John the final voice to join the others. She had done it. The people believed her. Not only did they believe her, but they also believed in her. There was no turning back now. They would have to make a plan to take Lochley from the throne.
Did you know that fairy tales originated as dark, twisty stories? Trying to stay true to that twisted side, I incorporated the seasonal courts of the fae into Sleeping Beauty and Snow White for a fun adventure into the world of Shadoria. Join Snow and Audora as they reveal more than just the sweet fairytale endings you're used to.
I will not allow you to kill me. Not without a fight.
Said Snow to the Hunter, "The Sleeping Princess."
Snow has been cursed from speaking her own name. She knows who she is, but no one else remembers. The Hunter has tried to kill her, but she was more than he bargained for. Looking for the Crown of Roses is her last attempt to break the curse because all of her other efforts have failed. Can the one man who was meant to kill her be the only one who can help her find the crown?

Princess Audora was cursed as a baby by the Autumn Court's Prince, Malecinth. She never understood the reason for the curse. Merriweather, a light fairie, could not lift the curse with her magic, but she provided a way out...true love's kiss before her eighteenth birthday would break the spell. If not, she was doomed to spend eternity in a state of slumber. Her mother continues to lure men into their world in an effort to find Audora's true love, going as far as to introduce her to the fae prince of the Summer court, but her youthful confusion makes it difficult to understand what love is let alone who her true love might be. The details of the curse, she knew. The reason behind it and the one who would implement the end was not what she expected...a betrayal she never saw coming.
