A wicked fairy who curses a child to a hundred years of slumber because she wasn't invited to a party! Seems harsh, right?
But the real story is so much more interesting and way sexier.
In this re-telling of Sleeping Beauty, the wicked fairy Maurelle isn't mad at not receiving an invitation -- no she's got deeper reason for being upset at King Edmund and Queen Blissa. And little princess Briar Rose, before she's cursed, is given the gift of dream sight, which allows her to interact with others in her dreams. All is not changed, though. Prince Charming is still, well, charming. He's just a tad bit sexier and knows exactly how to please.
Find yourself a comfy spot and make yourself at home as you start this imaginative, adult version of the classic fairy tale.
Maledom. “What goes around, comes around.” For nearly seven years she tortured and abused Mike and Adam who she kidnapped and forced to work in her silver mine. But now the situation is reversed. She’s their prisoner and will spend the next seven years enduring similar tortures and punishments as she used on them. The pair find her after three years of searching and it’s time for revenge! Forced hard labor, whipping and even branding are not enough to satisfy the men she used and later discarded as trash. Some of their best methods of torture include the desert in which they live. After all, everything in the desert either stings, pricks or bites. In the end she suffers the same final torture she had planned to use on them and they’ll have their pound of flesh. Shylock in Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice was denied his pound of flesh because he couldn’t take a drop of blood. But, when you’re dealing with sharp-toothed nipple clamps, needles and spikes, there’s bound to be a little blood. After all, we’re talking about brutal, painful torture, aren’t we?
Laura, believing her trials are over, inherits a vast fortune in diamonds only to find that her scheming uncle has secreted them in a love couch, designed specifically for gentlemen seeking the pleasures of women. Learning that the couch has been sold at auction she sets out to recover it, a quest that takes her into the most unlikely of places, from exclusive ladies clubs to the dark, sinister London underworld where chastity is in short supply and great demand.
From the glittering world of West End night houses to the shady brothels of Shadwell, Laura travels a torturous route leading from one libidinous disaster to the next, and has to trade more than hard cash to achieve her goal, including her own chastity - and not in a way of her liking.
From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel. Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right? Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me. When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise. The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago. The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match. I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house. The worst part? He didn’t come alone. I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection. The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more. Author's note – RoomHate is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
