Once Upon a Princess: Heart of Stone

Review

“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.

 

Once Upon A Princess: Beauty and the Faun

Review

“Another fun and sexy fairy tale! “Once Upon A Princess: Beauty and the Faun” is the second in a series of shifter novellas that combine a steamy romance with unusual paranormal characters. Deborah A. Bailey has invented a detailed fantasy world where fauns and other mythological creatures live in the Great Forest. Kayla is looking to escape an arranged marriage and finds herself at the mercy of a faun shifter named Del. I loved the chemistry between the two as they got to know each other and developed a steamy love affair. Fans of fantasy and shifter romances will enjoy this book.” – E. Kelly

Once Upon A Princess: Beauty and the Faun Excerpt

 

He led the way up the winding stairs. They went around and around, until they were up on the second landing. Kayla stepped off the top stair and refused to look down. It was just a round hole in the floor, so she could still see the downstairs. The entire second floor was his bedroom, evidently.

 

Del set the lantern down on a chest across from the bed. He got a candle and lit it from the lantern light. “You must be tired. Maybe you should get some rest.”

 

The bed did look comfortable, with its green and yellow patchwork quilt and the fluffy pillows. Up here the walls were painted a soothing blue, and the two windows had curtains that fluttered in the breeze. Other than the bed and the table, there was a rocking chair and gold trimmed mirror on the wall opposite the windows.

 

“Where will you sleep?” she asked.

 

“There’s only one bed, my lady. Where do you think?”

 

“With me? In the bed?” Kayla gasped. She’d never shared a bed before, especially not with a man.

 

“You don’t trust me? I brought you here to protect you and I don’t even know your name or where you’re from.” Del perched his hands on his hips. “Or maybe I should turn you back over to those satyrs who chased you.”

 

“No, don’t.” Better not antagonize him. She’d had enough drama for one night.

 

The Once Upon A Princess Duet

once upon a princess duet

Review

“Once Upon A Princess Duet is actually a collection of two books: “Heart of Stone” and “Beauty & The Faun”. Both of the books are fairytale romances, meaning they’re paranormal romance but read like fairytales.

In “Heart of Stone,” Princess Leesa is desperate to find a way to help her people, and on her quest to find a valuable item she can trade for supplies, she comes across an abandoned palace. There, she finds a gargoyle, Willem, who is willing to give her everything she needs, for a price. Is Leesa willing to take this risk? I really liked this novella, in particular the gargoyle, who has a quirky, funny personality. I also liked Leesa and how she was willing to sacrifice everything for her people.

The second novella, “Beauty & The Faun” was my favorite of the two. Kayla is a young woman who is, against her will, pushed into an arranged marriage by her aunt and uncle. Desperate to escape, Kayla hides in the Great Forest, where two mischievous fauns find her and deliver her to a faun shifter, who has some plans of his own with her. I really liked Del’s personality, how caring he was and how charming.

Both paranormal romance novellas are excellent, but the second one was my favorite. The writing is excellent overall, and I would recommend this duology to fans of fairy tale romances.” -Majanka Verstraete
