There are many anthologies out there, and I’m just not possessed of the time to read them all (as much as I may wish to). But, I can read a story or two from a collection now, and provide you with an opportunity. Please read on for my review of
Her Royal Comeuppance
Part of the Naughty Flames: Eleven Fiery Romances from authors writing as The Naughty Literati, I’ve had the chance to read one title from this collection.
Who was that person who wondered just why the Evil Queen was so evil? And what would have happened if the Huntsman did not bring the Evil Queen the heart of Snow White? Look no further, if you are looking for those answers: some will be found in Sabrina York’s title.
Cressida was a commoner and quite lovely, and Nick, her now Royal Huntsman always had a crush on the young and carefree girl. But marriage to the King and all of the disappointments the young girl faced have left her jealous, bitter and uptight.
In the midst of a major snowstorm, furious and now wet, cold and snow covered, Cressida MUST confront Nick for directly defying her orders to kill Snow and present her heart. Ignoring good sense with her fury overriding everything, she stomps off to Nick’s cottage, and finds a man, bare-chested and rather amused with her fury. Until she slams the door and the two are barricaded in by the snow.
Oh Nick has longed for the return of the carefree girl he once knew, none could match her charm, wit or beauty. And if the steam rising between the two of them is any indication…..
Hot and seriously steamy, this is not your bedtime fairy tale. Ok, maybe it is if you are over 18. But York manages to bring two characters to the story as complete beings, and allows us to see the connection between them. Dialogue is clever, Cressida is so very angry until she isn’t, and Nick is just bemused by her confusion. A wonderful short read.
