    I am continually impressed and surprised with SeRine's Transplan

    I am continually impressed and surprised with SeRine's Transplanted Tales books, and Along Came a Spider was certainly no exception. One of the things I like most about this series is the fact that you get to follow up with the previous couples, and more than just a passing mention. Red and Nate, and Lavender and Seth are all players in this story.

    But of course the focus of this story is on Nicky and Trish. Nicky "Little Boy" Blue and Beatrice Muffit came over into the Here and Now in the same group, and ever since that brief meeting, Trish has had a thing for Nicky. So when they run into each other again and he acts like he doesn't know who she is, she is understandably hurt. But after some things force them to work together, it becomes harder and harder for Trish to hide her feelings. But does she even want to?

    Nobody can take Nate's place in my heart, but Nicky sure comes close. He is the perfect example of a bad boy with a heart of gold. (Side note - is there a lead that Red didn't bang? Sheesh!) Nicky feels like he has a lot to make up for, and so when he got a second chance in the Here and Now he took it, and built an almost mob like empire. After surviving a terrible attack, he went off the grid and no one knew where he was, what he was doing, or even if he was alive. Until he surfaces with Trish.

    I always expect these stories to be a bit lighter than they are, but it is always a pleasant surprise. I guess the fact that they are based on fairy tales makes me expect nothing bu sunshine and rose petals but that is most certainly not the case. Along Came a Spider kept me engaged in the story, in the will they won't they of Nicky and Trish, and the follow up from the previous two couples. I certainly hope this isn't the last I hear from SeRine's Transplanted Tales.

    I get so excited about Kate Serine¿s ¿Transplanted Tales¿ series

    I get so excited about Kate Serine’s “Transplanted Tales” series – I love stories about fairy-tale and literary creatures living in our world and Serine is one of the best at it. She not only gives you a hot, steamy romance, but also an intriguing mystery that keeps you on your toes. If you are looking for fantasy and intrigue mixed in with your romance, Serine’s “Transplanted Tales” series has it in spades. - Full review available at RomanticReadsandSuch on Wordpress or ZbookTrib's website.

    Did you ever expect to read a sexy story about Little Miss Muffe

    Did you ever expect to read a sexy story about Little Miss Muffet? Me neither, but Kate Serine manages to bring fairytale creatures into the "here and now" and actually make it believable. Trish Muffet and Nicky Blue take you along on a rollercoaster ride of a story where Trish has a very valid reason for her fear of spiders and Nicky is on a quest for vengeance against Dracula. This tale is twisted and delicious. Strap yourself in, sit back, and enjoy.

    A Fairy Tale for Adults - LOVED IT! The story ope

    A Fairy Tale for Adults - LOVED IT! The story opens with a prologue in which Little Miss Muffet, aka Beatrice or Tish for short, is happily playing with a friend on the floor of her family home in the land of Make Believe. The next moment, Tish has been snatched from that scene and thrown into a new land, The Here And Now. She is greeted by a rakish stranger, Little Boy Blue, aka Nicky Blue, who asks her out of the blue to come with him as he plans to run off to make his fortune. She is mysteriously drawn to him as she can read his soul and knows that he is a kind, intelligent, courageous man. However, she feels that it would not be logical to run away with him... so she turns him down. Her heart breaks as she watches him fade into the shadows....

    Centuries later, as she works a crime scene as the Head of Forensics for the Fairy Management Authority or FMA, she thinks of Nicky Blue as she often has since that meeting centuries ago. She wonders if Nicky ever thinks of her...

    Along Came A Spider reminded me of a tale along the lines of an adult Roger Rabbit. I still love to watch the Roger Rabbit movie so this tale was right up my alley. The characters go from one thrilling adventure to another while on their mission to take out a dangerous Tale.

    The story is teeming with characters that any lover of fairy tales will remember: Vlad Dracula, the Grim Reaper, the Three Piggs, Little "Red" Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Rumpelstiltskin, and many more. Of course, there is a romantic aspect as Tish & Nicky team up on a mission. I caught myself laughing out loud at the humor many times.

    I was mesmerized by the story from the beginning but I'd like to note that this is the 3rd book in Kate's Transplanted Tales series. The author does a very good job of filling in the needed background from the previous stories. However, IF I had realized this when I 1st started the book, I would have read the 1st two books 1st.

    I would highly recommend this Tale to anyone who fondly remembers their fairy tales and to lovers of paranormal books with a comedic twist. However anyone who enjoys a good story will like Along Came A Spider!

    Very Good! 4 Stars****

    This is the third book in the Transplanted Tales and I loved it.

    This is the third book in the Transplanted Tales and I loved it. Of course I am biased because I love the entire series, but I digress. Finally we get to read Nicky Blue’s story and it does not disappoint. It’s funny, charming, and full of action. Some of our favorite character’s make appearances and we are introduced to new tales as well. This is definitely a stand alone novel so if you are new to this series you’ll be fine, the past history of the character’s is told without stalling the story. This book nicely wrap’s up the love stories for Red and her ex’s, but there are plenty of other character’s left for us to read about in the future. Like Al Addin, the mysterious Alex McCain, and my favorite Gideon. And since a Tale is simply someone who’s story was told in the Here and Now the possibilities are endless. I can’t wait to read more.
