A really funny adult tale to read after you've had a really bad day.

This humorous adult fairly tale had me laughing through the entire story. Princess Amalia is a beautiful and innocent young woman who has been extremely overprotected by her father King Norwood. She has been raised with maids and soldiers surrounding her, whose sole purpose is to protecting her virtue. Amalia grows up completely naive and uneducated when it comes to the relations between a man and a woman. By order of the king, the entire kingdom is forbidden to speak to the princess regarding this intimate subject matter, and the penalty is death. But something curious has suddenly appeared beneath her sheets one night, and she has no idea what it is. As the story unfolds, the author has you cheering on Amalia's quirky aunts and her sensible mother, the queen. Together they work to convince the king to tell her the truth, and at the same time try to discover how this very odd lump came to be in the princess's bed. Great fun to read from such a talented author! His style of writing is very smooth and flows very well. The characters are simple but well developed as I would expect in a short story. I hope to see more of his work. Yes, it is for adults and yes it is adult humor. If one has a problem with BN because adult fiction is not separate from other fictional works, then fault BN and not the work of the author.

Never seen anything like this.

It was definitely a short funny story. It was an entertaining read for the most part. With a title like this, I feel like they should have dug even deeper. It has a classic fairytale ending and is most certainly an adult princess story that most women might dream of.

    I was browsing free books and found this on accident. I downloaded out of curiosity - LOL but out of boredom read it. The book was actually well written and funny humor.

    Definitely Recommended: Very Original

    I am always on the lookout for something new. This story was not only new, but incredibly funny. I read parts of it to my husband in the car and we had some laughs. I especially loved that despite its subject matter it was not raunchy.

    Light Lunch Read

    Short story that provides a cute twist on the traditional Princess and Pea story. Short length makes it ideal for a lunch break or wait at the doctor's office.
