Once upon a time...
Remember the fairy tales your parents read to you when you were little?
These are NOT those fairy tales.
From modern day royalty to metaphorical dragons, contemporary castles to sexy heroes, these bestselling authors twist tales as old as time into something new.
GLAMOUR contains eight exclusive never-before-seen novellas that each have an HEA... because they all lived happily ever after.
Holy hotness, people! I was super shocked with In a Stranger’s Bed! I knew this was going to be sexy but I DID NOT expect it to be THAT sexy! And I mean this in a good way!
So, In a Stranger’s Bed is a retelling of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and I did not know how Sophie Jordan would handle it and she did it really well! I love that it wasn’t too on the nose and I liked that there were bits and pieces of the fairy tale incorporated in this novella.
Also, I was a little worried about how she would handle this: a stranger coming into the house and making herself at home. It is a little bit iffy, but I thought it went really well.
When I read the first chapter, I was really worried because the heroine Thea, is traveling in Scotland alone and SHE is the one getting into the house and making herself at home. I see a lot of alarm bells going off here because – SCARY! However, Sophie Jordan allayed my fears and again, the situation was handled really well!
I am super excited to read the rest of the novellas in the anthology and I will be reading them soon! I actually preordered this anthology and I’m really curious. The only author I have read is Sophie Jordan and I’m hoping that I can find a new one-click author.
