Publisher Description

Dastardly deeds meet love, hope and humour in this fairy tale reimagining of The Princess & the Pea.

NO BED OF ROSES

A standalone book in the Dark Heart Forest Fairy Tales Series.

Frustrated by her commitment-shy son Romeo pulling out of yet another wedding, Queen Daphne finds a last-minute suitor. But will he land that first kiss and decide she's not the one, or will they find their Happily Ever After?  

ooo000ooo  

The queen of Dalmashia is at her wits' end. Just days before he's due to marry, her son Prince Romeo changes his mind, leaving the nation high and dry. This is the third wedding he's pulled out of, and if the queen doesn't do something soon, her subjects will lose confidence in the crown.

As luck would have it, the palace housekeepers find a last-minute suitor. And after the girl's royalty is verified with a special pea-under-the-mattress test, the queen is left with just one problem...

Every time her commitment-shy son meets a match, he feels compelled to test the relationship with a kiss – and inevitably, he decides she's not the one.

So when Romeo is captivated by the beautiful red-headed Rose, the queen's not taking any chances. She requests that Rose not kiss Romeo before the wedding, and she vows to hold her resolve. Unfortunately, despite a similar promise from Romeo, he's less enthusiastic – and he has some dastardly ideas about how to manipulate circumstances in his favour, too.

Will the queen's attempts to pull off a joyous royal wedding be in vain? Or will the couple find their Happily Ever After?

Find out in No Bed of Roses, a twisted fairy tale reimagining of The Princess & the Pea.

ABOUT the Author's Fairy Tale Fiction

If you love stories with a blend of adventure, humour, romance, and a touch of magic thrown in, then the author's fairy tale-inspired fiction is for you.

Written for adults, stories often call into question the 'facts' of the original tales. So whether you're reading a reimagining of a tale or an imagined sequel, it'll come with some intriguing twists.

Featuring strong female leads, each story has a flavour all its own, with varying shades of light and dark and is set in a shared world, on the same continent, with the notoriously dangerous Dark Heart Forest at its centre. And although they can be read as standalones, you may spot a few overlaps with characters and places.

Books are written in British English and contain no sex or swearing. However, there may be occasional violence or content not suited to children.
