Let the celebrations begin!
Welcome to the Beyond Fairytales Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be a part of this fabulous line of books from Decadent Publishing with my tale SLUMBER.
SLUMBER is a re-telling of ‘The Glass Coffin’, a fairy tale very similar to ‘Sleeping Beauty’. I incorporated elements from both tales into Talia and Sebastian’s story, making it a rollicking and dangerous adventure through the Kingdom of Dormiraa, a land where fashion is everything and the Talior is second only in consequence to the king. Talia is the lost princess, gone these last seven years, and Sebastian the Tailor, sent to find her and bring her home. Of course, not everyone desires the princess’s return…
I hope you enjoy the hop, peeps. Thanks for stopping by!
The Tailor has been tasked to find the princess…
Upon decree from his king, Sebastian, Tailor to the entire kingdom of Dormiraa, embarks on the mission to fetch the Princess Thalia home, her seven year Royal Tour over. He didn’t expect to find her working with clockwork and gears, encased within a coffin of glass. He did not expect the sight of her wild black hair to set his heart to pound, or the flash of her dark eyes would heat his blood. He did not expect he would want her so badly, not when he could never have her.
The princess must become the Queen…
Thalia has always known she must return to the capital to prepare for the throne. She did not expect her father to send the Tailor to fetch her, or that this man with his extravagant clothes and subtle cosmetics would intrigue her so well. There was something about him, something that spoke of danger and secrets, even as his wicked mouth and knowing eyes made her yearn.
However, not everyone desires the princess’s return. When they are attacked, they can only turn to each other. Will they overcome status and secrets to discover a love for all time?
