First of all…can I just say…this cover is gorgeous!! This anthology is filled with your darkest, dirtiest fantasies. The tales inside twisted fairy tales that include filthy rich men, a masquerade ball, and dark desires that will be fulfilled and they are written by some of the best authors in the industry.

Every story within this anthology is a fully complete short story that is a new twisted take on a beloved classic fairy tale. Each one is centered around the same evening of the same masquerade ball, but then they each have their own plot aside from that similarity. Whether it is Cinderella, Snow White, or Beauty and the Beast each twisted story will steam up your reading fantasy and give you a HEA.

Here is just a peek into a few of the stories contained within the anthology:

King Midas by Skye Warren; Raoul Midas is a man who can turn anything into gold, but he loathes human touch. He finds pleasure in woman by buying their affection, until he hires Anita to be his escort to the masquerade ball. After just one night with her he know he needs more, but is he willing to give in to her touch.

The Princess and the Pea by Sierra Simone; Morgan is a Domme at odds with her own wants and desires. Morgan believes she should only be in charge, but when she gives in on the night where her ex tempts her with all of her desires she is torn between the other half she has always tried to keep under control. Is she really ready to give that part up of herself?

Beauty and the Beast by Willow Winters. Calum may be known as a beast to many in the business world but Annabelle isn’t afraid of the man that has sets his sights on her at the ball. When the night escalates and she finds herself back at his home she isn’t afraid of the beast, even when she discovers he wants to keep her forever.

King Thrushbeard by Cora Reilly. When Jean has to marry to save her family, she didn’t plan on the overbearing Peyton to come along and demand all her firsts. Set out on defying Peyton she goes to the ball to give someone else her firsts, but she also didn’t plan on a mysterious stranger to intrigue her quite so quickly.

Snow White by T.M. Frazier is a dark retelling of the Hunter and Snow White that has every element of original fairy tale, including where the stepmother wants evidence of Snow White’s death which includes her bloody heart. This tale isn’t for the faint of heart and is by far the darkest of the stories…but if you know and love T.M. Frazier you wouldn’t have it any other way.


In a castle adorned with gems, coated in gold, and dusted with luxury, the youngest of the Constantine Family will be introduced to the elite of New York. But the party isn’t all glamor. Villains lurk in dark corners, evil deals are struck, and starcrossed loves are born.
