Once upon a time…
There were two brothers who collected tales from their homeland and put them in a book. Stories of magical creatures and horrible fates. Princesses who fell under enchantment and princes who came from the countryside to save them.
These are not those stories.
And we are not those brothers.
This time, it’s the Sisters turn to spin nine tales that will delight and terrify you. If you were looking for those classic stories you heard in your childhood, look again, because these stories aren’t like any you’ve heard before.
Maidens turning into flowers, and soldiers brought back to life by a snake’s whim, these stories are filled with a dark romance that you can only get when you reimagine those classic Fairy Tales.
Here’s your chance to find out if all Fairy Tales end in: Happily Ever After or if their fates are sometimes a little bit…

“Steele and Skin” by Isobelle Cate
What if you stole the secret of spinning straw into gold?
Mia Arceneaux’s life was just where she wanted it to be—normal as a witch could hope for, save for the steamy relationship the fates decreed to spice up her life.

What could have been a rewarding evening for Milo Steele turns into a nightmare when the secret given to his family for safekeeping is stolen. In the midst of investigating who stole from him, the artifact is returned to him by the person he least expects. Mia.
A carpet of lies and deceit should have broken them. And when a more imminent threat rears its ugly head, they have to trust each other to keep the artifact safe.
And give their happy ever after a fighting chance.
A witch. A billionaire. A secret unlocking their shared destinies. Can they still have it all?
“The Traveler’s Riddle” by Hope Daniels & Alicia Dawn
Once upon a time magical and humankind lived side by side.
Each governed by their own King, their own Queen, Lords and Ladies. Each with their own set of wonders to behold. Each with their own squabbles, wars, and malcontents.
As in any good story, there are Princesses and Princes beautiful for the eyes to behold. Some kind and benevolent while others’ souls rot in the morning sun.
This is but one of those stories.
This is a tale of a magical Prince and Princess, young and fresh to prove themselves worthy of their parents’ admiration. Are they worth the lineage they inherit, or do they deserve to have it torn from their fingers as one might tear a scab away?
Only time can tell the true tale…
“The Witch’s Lair” by Jennifer Daniels
Greta Lieder was amazing in the bakery. She excelled at it and her success was almost her downfall. Thinking she had it all including her own business and her hunky boyfriend, life had gone to her head.
Who better to knock you down a peg than your boyfriend’s wife?
In a blink in an eye Greta’s life is turned upside down. She may be cocky but she was not a homewrecker.
But try telling that to a distraught witch who was hell bent on getting revenge.

For six years Greta has lived her life as authentically as she could until a handsome new logging contractor shows up into town and starts up his own business.
Axe is taken with Greta from the first time he laid eyes on her.
How will Greta explain to him that she was cursed by a witch. Yup, that would earn her a one-way ticket to a padded room in no time. What a great first impression.

“Ella of Hollie” by Shaunna Rodriguez
The legend of Hollie Woods is as enchanting as the place itself.
Oh, but you must be looking for it, in order to find it.
Those who go in often do not come out. At least, not the same as when they went in.
Some have lived to tell the tale while others did not fare so well; some by death and doom and others have been silenced by what some say was the light of the moon.
“Fairest Betrayals” by Kali Willows
Welcome to a retelling of the classic Grimm tale of The Pink. “Father, will you see the maiden who brought me up so tenderly, and who was afterwards to murder me, but did not do it?”
The Witch trials are over, but the witch hunters still rule Salem with an iron fist. Men and women fear the smallest whisper of magic, yet sometimes magic is the only way to have a baby. No child, however, born of the same can ever be accepted in such a place.
Jasper Woodman was stolen from his sleeping mother’s arms. For years, he was raised begrudgingly by a man who clearly despised him yet shared no knowledge of Jasper’s magical origins. Treated like a loathed servant, the only kindness he knew was from that of Judas’ own daughter, a beautiful maiden not much older than he. She was full of purity and love despite her father’s cruelty.
One dark night, Rosalind Braddock is faced with the choice between taking a life or losing her own to the mad cook’s wrath. For blood or for love? Her choice decides the fairest betrayal. The beauty of pink petals can fade over time, but the sting of betrayal can fester forever.
“The Ravens’ Sister” by S.E. Winters
The Brothers Grimm tell of seven brothers that were transformed into ravens. They were rescued from their curse by the bloody sacrifice made by their sister.
Of course, they were returned to their human form and lived happily ever after, but the Sisters Grimm know the true story of the young girl’s sacrifice.
Read the tale but be warned that it did not end happily ever after in a castle. The real story still lives on to this day and you might be surprised by the powerful magic that comes from such a great sacrifice.

True love will find a way in the end…except when one vows to follow their spouse into the afterlife, leaving no chance for a happily-ever-after after death.
Unless one possesses:
