    Summary

    The story was about a young girl named Cinderella who lived happily with her father until he married a cruel woman with two equally cruel daughters. When the father died, Cinderella was forced to become a maid and served her stepmother and stepsisters. Then when a ball was held, a fairy godmother granted Cinderella a dress, a carriage, and a pair of glass slippers that ultimately gained her a happy ending with her Prince Charming.

    But that's not how it all goes down in this dark retelling....

    Summary

    Stories will later tell, I suppose, that the Dragon stole me away;
    Caught me from my horse at hunt,
    Plucked me from a royal parade,
    Or ravaged the land until I was surrendered up to him;
    A canapé in coronet; a royal nonpareil;
    A pretty, sticky toffee in satin slippers to bait the quest for a better class of Jack
    Than will come to slay a marauder of livestock alone.

    Summary

    Professor Rey finds life as an adjunct professor not quite what she expected. There is the satisfaction of teaching using her major and degrees, but the isolation and job insecurity can cause lacerating sadness, insecurity, and poverty.

    One semester, an ex-military student walks in late into to her classroom on the first day of school, and soon she starts to experience a series of emotions while he's her student. Ben Solo is slightly mysterious but also seems to contain artistic promise. Meanwhile, she is plagued by strange and tantalizing dreams portraying a dark fairy tale.

    Can Rey overcome a lack of trust created by her college-aged experiences to form a strong bond in a new relationship? And what of the opaque background of her student, who is at pains to seem helpful, but who also conceals his family life and history.

    Story is set in two time periods, late 90's and late 00's, a time of changes in social and economic life in the U.S.

    Summary

    Summary: When seeking funding to revive her father’s dying firm, Sarah encounters someone from her past. And a proposal that chills her very bones.

    Gothic. Very dark take on Beauty and the Beast. Dark fairytale elements. A strange amalgamation of fear and lust, horror and romance.

    ‘…ring around the rosies, a pocket full of posies…’ she whirled around until she was giddy--she collapsed into a fit of giggles ‘ashes, ashes…’

    The shadows smiled.

    ‘…we all fall down.’
