The fairy tales that call to us are those with morals that are as valid in the modern world as they were when the stories first rose to popularity -- lessons like: Choose wisely whom you love; respect your elders; anything worth having is worth striving for; beware hubris; and real beauty is in the soul. This collection brings together five romantic and erotic re-imaginings of much-beloved fables (with a gay twist!) for your entertainment and amusement, while keeping intact the core themes that have ensured they've survived the ages.
In "A Different Dance" by Nash Summers, Casey needs to find his Happily Ever After before the stroke of midnight. In "The Wolf in the Woods" by Nicole McCormick, Malachi has been cursed until he can bond with a human, and Seamus might just be that human. In Darren Endymion's "The Snow Queen," Gavyn must confront the secrets of the world and his own heart to retrieve his lost love. In "Catching the Gingerbread Man" by Christopher West, Gregory the thief is trying to escape arrest, but the airship captain he's hired may decide the reward money the police are offering is a better deal. In "The Prince and the Frog" by Rob Rosen, a not so ordinary frog makes for an extraordinary tale.
