Okay I am just going to say it, if there had been fairy tales like this when I was a teenager I probably wouldn’t hate them, in fact until Lila took it upon herself to write these wonderful adaptations of the fairy tales I would probably still hate them. Once again Lila gives us her witting take on these classic tales, The Emperors New Clothes, The Ugly Duckling, and The Princess and the Pea
The Marquis’ New Clothes: To search his wardrobe for a missing ring, Aimee will have to get very close to the seductive Marquis de Nattes, and soon finds that his clothes-and hers-are utterly forgotten…
What is more fascinating to read than of a man who can’t have who he wants, and doesn’t even realize why he wants her until it is almost to late. This was a nice story about two people that finally give in to their feelings for each other.
The Lovely Duckling: Joseph d’Alumbert will stop at nothing to peel away the inhibitions of Emilie de Sarron and reveal the beautiful swan inside…
How many of us have ever felt like the ugly duckling? I know that I have. I think that is why this is my favorite story in this book. Joseph bitterly regrets a decision that he made several years ago regarding Emilie, and over the last year has been working to make up for that, unbeknown to Emilie.
Emilie has never forgiven Joseph for that decision, but is determined to put it behind her and enjoy herself at her aunts Masquarade party. What neither one of them expected was for it to end the way it does.
The Princess and the Diamonds: Princess Gabrielle can’t sleep. There is something hard in her bed. Not just the stolen diamonds tucked under her mattress- but the handsome marquis on it.
This was a really cute story about what two people will do for those that they love. They both have reasons for being where they are, and neither one is willing to share them. The one thing that they do know however is that they have an intense attraction for each other. I loved the ending of this story. I thought it was perfect.
In general I loved this book, and can’t wait to see what Lila comes up with next. If you have ever loved the fairy tales, and hot steamy sex, well then you can’t go wrong with Lila’s take on these classic tales.
