What a fun collection of fairy tales retold and tweeked a bit. This is a great line up of authors! Oh, and I love this cover! So pretty.
These are all short, novella size stories which lend themselves so well to reading here and there when you have a minute or two. They are all clean and sweet. I love these Timeless Romance Anthology Collections.
Of course, I loved some more than others but they were all good. My top three were Scarlet, Black Fern and The Miller's Daughter.
