This free NookBook is only 56 pages long, including cover, contents & all. The "Clever John" fairy tale is cute and clever, but is only four pages long. The rest of the book is a free sample of another of the author's books -- the freebie is clearly designed to entice readers into buying more of the author's writings. Didn't work for me.

    An enchanting fairytale by the talented Elizabeth Hoyt!

    Anyone who has read Elizabeth Hoyt's work knows that she includes a fairytale in each of her books. The fairytales are told bit by bit at the beginning of each chapter and they complement or mirror what is going on in the book. CLEVER JOHN is the fairytale Ms. Hoyt has written for her spectacular third Maiden Lane book, SCANDALOUS DESIRES.

    Even if you're reading CLEVER JOHN as a standalone fairytale, it's a delightful read. Ms. Hoyt makes every word count in her stories, and though short, CLEVER JOHN is wonderfully satisfying. As with many of Ms. Hoyt's full-length books, CLEVER JOHN is a story I'll be reading over and over again.

    The release of CLEVER JOHN also makes me desperately hope that Ms. Hoyt's publisher will make her other fairytales available. As much as I enjoy reading them in the books, it would be wonderful to be able to read the fairytales straight through.
