WARNING: DIFFERENT COVER, SAME GREAT BOOK

Alice is all grown up. Running the Mad Hatter's Cupcakery and Tea Shoppe is a delicious job, until fate--and a fairy godmother with a weakness for bad boys--throws her a curveball. Now, Alice is the newest resident of Wonderland, where the Mad Hatter fuels her fantasies and thrills her body with his dark touch.

The Mad Hatter may have a voice and a body made for sex, but he takes no lovers. Ever. But a determined fairy godmother has forced Alice into Wonderland--and his arms. Now, as desire and madness converge, the Hatter must decide if he will fight the fairy godmother's mating--or fight for Alice.

Meet the Author

Marie Hall has always held a dangerous fascination for creatures that go bump in the night. And mermaids. And of course fairies. Trolls. Unicorns. Shapeshifters. Vampires. Scottish brogues. Kilts. Beefy arms. Ummm... Bad boys! Especially the sexy ones.

Then the day came she realized apart from the sexy bad boy she married, there'd be no vampires/shapeshifters/mermaids/fairies/or even stinky trolls in her future unless she wrote about them. More often than not she can be found roaming the wild, lush tropical forest she calls her backyard (a.k.a. Hawaii) and day dreaming constantly about her latest project.

Her Mad Hatter is the first book of her Kingdom Series.

Her Mad Hatter is an intriguing take on a traditional storytale. I have never stopped to think what happened to the other people in a storytale. In this alternate take on Alice in Wonderland, we get Hatter's love story--and what a love story it is! Wonderful characters, beautiful imagery, hot love scenes and a moving storyline are all served up by Ms. Hall and made this a very fast read. If you're looking for a solid love story--I highly recommend this book. I enjoyed every moment and look forward to more from this author.

It is the best fantasy romance I have read in a very long time. It draws you in very quickly, I read it in one night, and will be reading it again.

I've read so many different takes of the classics and none of those writers did those classics justice. The characters were silly, not in a good way, the interactions were crude and the sex was crass. Hell in one version the cheshire cat was female, which is fine, except that it ended with her snd Alice as lovers....very strange. I really enjoyed this version, it was very well written, very whimsical, very sad during certain parts but it fell right into Hatter character. I like that the author didn't bombard readers with all the characters at one shot and that she didn't recreate the story page for page, it had her own flair. The sex was hot but not in a "wow I might as well put on a porn movie" kind of way. I am looking forward to reading the books in this series! SR

You will never look at these fairy tales in the same light again. A little weak in style; lots of errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation and repetitive word choice; but while the series is not Pulitzer-bound, a very consumable read for the intended audience. A fresh breath of fancy to give the reader a pleasant break from reality.

The heroine is Asian, an Asian Alice to be exact, and so deliciously different from the usual blonde blue eyed Alice that I had to take a second look. the story is a little fast paced but beautifully written. The author includes everything from childhood loves, angst, and even a touch of madness. The book was a great read and I highly recommend it!

This book was phenomenal. At first I was worried it would be a typical story but its not. The characters were so amazingly done that I instantly fell in love. Marie was able to make you feel the hatters true madness. Its a mark of a gresat writer when you can make the reader truly believer they are there watching this happen in real life. To competely entrap the reader in to the story, to cause the reader to laugh, to cry, to get butterflies and blush along side Alice. Bravo Marie. I reccomend her highly and will certainly be reading more of her work.

Her Mad Hatter by Marie Hall Kingdom Series Book 1 Danika was not your usual fairy godmother. She didn’t want the prissy princes and princesses. She liked having her bad boys. And especially the worst of them in the Kingdom. The Bad Five. This included Mad Hatter, Gerard, Wolf, Jinni and Hook. She had been warned to connect them with their mates before it was too late. Especially Hatter’s. So off she went to find yet another Alice. Alice Hu loved her Wonderland book. She believed at one time when she was in dire straights, Mad Hatter had come to rescue her. Her Hatter, she loved him. No one believed her of course. So on she went in life, no man ever comparing to the one in her dreams. And one day she finds herself being pulled into a tunnel by a white rabbit. This was an extraordinary story. The author takes the tale of Alice in Wonderland and adds a complete back story to it. Taking the reader from our world into a magical crazy place called, Wonderland. She has you falling in love with the disheveled sullen Hatter and at one point it had me going through quite a few tissues. It looks like there will be five books in this series, one for each of the Bad Five.  **Sexual content

Although I found the ending of this story to be a bit rushed, the rich world and fascinating characters make up for it in a overall satisfying read. I'd like to see how this author develops over time.

I would have bought this book just to get the tea party scene in chapter one. Well, not tea party scene--more like a drinking scene with the bad boys of the Kingdom sitting around a table, their personalities sparking conflict whenever one of them utters a syllable. The way the author infuses them with so much sensuality and personality with just a few words and bits of dialogue . . . it's amazing. I will definitely be adding all of the Kingdom books to my auto-buy list because I just can't bear the thought of missing any of these bad boys' tales . . .

Loved it! Quick read and very well written. An awesome adult spin on a childhood classic. The author did an amazing job writing the Hatter; you could definitely feel his craziness. I loved the descriptions of Wonderland and everything that was happening while there. It added a sense of adventure while Hatter and Alice were traveling. Beware, there is defintely a very, very sad part at the end... that only leads to a happening end...

Most of the reviews say this is a good book and that they couldn't stop reading it. I must agree the story is interesting I felt immediatley involved in the story, however the editing could use some work. While the story progressed I did find myself putting the book/nook down on several occasions before I actually finished reading it due to my frustration at the EDITING. There were far to many mistakes for this to be a smooth read such as "His knuckled her cheek, brushing her lip....” clearly the author meant to use He and not His. That is just one of the many errors in this book. I can not stress enough how hig editing is with me. If youre big on editig and smooth reads this isnt the one for you. If you're just looking for an intrresting quick read and dont mind poor editing its not too bad.

My Initial Reaction… Since Marie is one of my favorite authors, I really wanted to love Her Mad Hatter. I just liked it. The concept was great and I see a lot of potential for the series as a whole, especially in the world, but I didn’t love the Alice or the romance. The Characters… Let’s get the bad new out of the way first, shall we? Alice just didn’t do it for me. I wanted to love her and there was just enough there to make me realize that if I’d gotten to know her a lot better I probably would have adored her. But I didn’t. Alice Hu is obsessed with Wonderland and the Mad Hatter and has been her whole life. I never did really fully understand the obsession – it was explained that she felt an affinity to the story because of it bearing her name, but the level of obsession that we’re talking about just didn’t come through. Perhaps I was meant to understand that it was because they were fated for each other, but again, I didn’t get that. The result was that she seemed like a star struck girl who had the chance to make her crush fall in love with her. However, I saw some things about her that I could tell I could have adored. For example, Alice broke away from what the family wanted to pursue her dreams. She’s a baker (and who doesn’t love someone who makes delicious treats?) and when we first meet her, she’s just opened her own bakery. To do that, especially without the support of family, take guts. And every now and again she’d say something that made me think, “Ok, this chic has got spunk.” It just wasn’t enough. I wanted so much more character development. Okay, but there’s a huge chunk of good here and his name is: The Mad Hatter. I think that to write a character that’s a bit out of his wits and somehow still make sense has got to be HARD. Marie managed to make the Hatter a bit insane and yet his ramblings worked in a pretty great way. And. what can I say, I have a weakness for hot guys, even the semi insane? It’s hard to put my finger on it exactly, because we didn’t get to know him near as much as I would have liked either, but I liked him much more than I liked Alice. There’s really not much for a supporting cast – this is Alice & Hatter’s story. However, Marie did add this neat aspect of a fairy godmother – Danika – who is responsible for the bad boys (Hatter, Wolf, Hook and there were two more which I’ve forgotten at the moment) and she has to help them find their soulmates within the year or something terrible will happen. (So we know where the series is going, right?) Danika is fun. She made me laugh and her appreciation for the bad boys is something we have in common :) I hope we get to know her a bit better in the other books. The Story… For me, Her Mad Hatter shined in the creative way it told the story. We’re introduced to the scene by Danika, Hatter’s fairy godmother (who knew guys got fairy godmothers? Seems fair.) She’s been trying to match Hatter (and the other bad boys) to their soul mates for a long time and times almost up. She’s known that Hatter’s match would be named Alice, so she’s been bringing him Alices to fall in love with. These Alices stay for 3 days, during which time they will either fall in love with Hatter, him with them, and (and this is important) be accepted by Wonderland, or they will go home and never return. Over the years, Hatter has almost fallen for some, had some try to take Wonderland’s power, and others ignore him for 3 days. One of those Alices was Alice Hu’s great grandmother – whom she’s the spitting image of – and her great grandmother broke Hatter’s heart. So when she shows up looking just like him, they get off to a bad start. A really brilliant concept and I loved the three days that Alice spent in Wonderland. Marie did a really great job making this crazy place that you can’t help but love. Like with the characters, though, I wanted more. The three days went so fast and I didn’t get to see so many of the things that for me ARE Wonderland. No crazy queen (I mean, come on, what’s Wonderland without “Off with your head?!?”), for example. But the moments that I did get – like the tea party – were just great. And that’s why I wanted MORE.To be perfectly fair, though, my knowledge of Wonderland comes purely from TV and Movie adaptations of the book and I’m no expert. Perhaps what was missing was not in the book and I have no place to talk from? The love story too, needed more. It was hot and steamy and didn’t need any more of that. I wanted more development – three days is a short time and in those three days they just didn’t spend enough time together to fall in love IMHO. They fell in lust, but I wanted love. A deep connection. I felt like those three days needed to be packed for me to believe in their love story, and they weren’t so I didn’t. But I believed in their lust LOL and it was enjoyable ;) Concluding Sentiments… So I’m a bit disappointed, but ultimately I loved the world and really look forward to seeing more stories set within it. And I’m thrilled that Marie just released THE HUNTSMAN, a full-length novel in this same world. But for a fun quick read, Her Mad Hatter will do the trick. *This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.*

I was never the Alice in Wonderland kid in my family. I liked Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast. Oh and Hunchback of Notre Dame. Alice in Wonderland was just weird, or so I thought from the cartoon. When the Tim Burton movie came out, and was so different than the cartoon I instantly fell in love with it. I remember people saying it was more like the book than the cartoon was and it made me want to read the book. Which I never got around to. But whether in the cartoon that I wasn't a fan of, or the Tim Burton take on the movie, the Mad Hatter was always my favorite character. There was something about the guy that just struck me. Even when he had white hair and his tongue hanging out of his mouth.  But h.o.l.y. h.e.l.l. Nothing prepared me for how I fell in love with the Hatter in this book. Nothing. He was mad, crazy, and yet you could tell that underneath it all, underneath his poetry recitation and general chaos, he was intelligent. He was so smart and so strong, and I think it was driving him crazy that he was being driven crazy. I think part of what bothered him so much was that he just didn't want to give in to the madness and the more he fought it, the harder it tried to take over. I loved the idea of them searching for "his" Alice, and that they found the perfect one. And they did. And they were so beautiful together. Not to mention sexy because let's face it.. even if you've never thought of the Mad Hatter as sexy before, you definitely will when you read this. The story was a roller coaster trying to battle his moods and then finding out who she was and why he didn't want to let her in to his heart.  Johnny Depp eat your heart out... you've got nothing on this guy.

Her Mad Hatter by Marie Hall So many people try to capture old fairy tales, some even try to renew them with more added in. Marie Hall has done just that in this romance fairy tale. Now I may be bias because I love all things to do with Mad Hatter in general, but this book made me love him more. Now this is not like the fairy tale of Alice falling down a rabbit hole, instead it is realistic. There are parts in this book that will make you laugh, cry, and smile. It is a page turner for sure! Even though I do wish the story could have been longer, the characters in this book were very well described in a way you could feel as if they were real. The setting is what had me smile, cause instead of the original Alice this took place in a self owned place by the character. Most fairy tales show spoiled princesses or poor into riches.. but this showed reality. Nobody was rich or poor, it was normal life that we all live today. It was a modern twist that fit perfectly. Now for those who can't read past bad grammar, spelling, punctuation, or any other flaws, this book does have some. But they are not so bad you want to tear your hair out. I know that people are not perfect and I understand that there are mistakes, most people write because they enjoy it. But believe me when I say this book is worth the read no matter what. This is a book I will always keep and read over and over again.

I really enjoyed this book and it appears that I really liked the differences that other readers have hated! I LIKED the fact that the Mad Hatter was ........ well,.......... mad! I LIKED the fact that he was hot and sexual. I LIKED that Alice was already a fan of Wonderland and I really LIKED the fact that this wonderland was crazy, psychedelic, magic and NOT like the Disney film! If you want a fairy godmother then I would ask for Danika as she has attitude. One of my favourite quotes in this book comes from her when she is thinking about her boys and Cinderella - "Why any self-respecting fairy godmother would pass them over for an inane twit who relied on animals to do her housecleaning was beyond her." This story is crazy, fun, hot and makes reference to Johnny Depp which is never a bad thing! If you want a bit of madness in your life then read this short novella. Recommended for fans of Mercedes' Lackey's Five Hundred Kingdoms series. Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

The Mad Hatter is MAD that's never been a more truer story. Alice is a legger who opens a lovely little tea shop with a friends. She is not feeling well and a elderly matron comes into her establishment which is none other than Danika in disguise. She convinces Alice to visit Neverland and give bad boy Mad Hatter one chance. She knows this is his true love. As the story unfolds things are not as they seen. Marie Hall/Jovee Winters brings us all into her world of Kingdom for the first time and we feel enchanted with the make believe world and she keeps us wanting to come back for so much more.
