Once Upon a Princess: Heart of Stone
5 Stars. A fun & sensual fairy tale! “Once Upon a Princess: Heart of Stone” is a perfect afternoon read. I was pulled into the story from the first page, and kept reading straight through to the end. Deborah Bailey did an excellent job creating the magical fantasy world of Leesa and Willem. Her rich characterization and sensory details brought the story to life. She made Willem (the gargoyle) funny and sexy – something you don’t normally see in a book. I highly recommend this novella to romance and fantasy lovers. You won’t be disappointed! -E. Kelly

Once Upon a Princess: Heart of Stone Excerpt
Leesa headed up the stairs and stopped at the 2nd floor landing. Eduardo and Erokan’s rooms had been on this floor. Dust was everywhere, but otherwise the furnishings were just as they’d been left. Varmont’s bedroom, private study and library were on the 3rd floor. Most likely he would’ve hidden some of his valuables there. She went upstairs to check.
The doors to the Duke’s room, study and library were open. But the fourth door was closed. The treasure room, perhaps?
She opened the door and stepped inside. Strangely, this room wasn’t as dusty as the others. The air was heavy with perfume. Across from the door was a folding screen decorated with blue and yellow flowers. Behind it she could make out the base of a claw-foot tub.
To her surprise, the entire room had a feminine feeling, from the huge bed covered with blush pink coverlets and plush furs to the gold-trimmed white furniture. Even the jewel-encrusted skylight above her had its own beauty, reflecting colorful sprinkles of light over the pale stone walls.
A white cabinet with glass doors caught her attention. The shelves held glass bottles of different shapes and sizes. Some had liquids inside, others were empty. What were these? Perfumes? Or maybe potions.
The Duke used magic. Maybe this was where he’d kept his enchantments. Would they be worth anything? Possibly. But just as Leesa reached out to open the cabinet, the door slammed behind her.
Startled, she spun around. She was alone. Who had closed it? Leesa ran to the door and gripped the handle, expecting the door to open as easily as it had when she’d come in. But it didn’t. She pulled and banged on it, but it wouldn’t budge.
She was locked in.
