Overview

Her Mad Hatter:

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.

Long length Novella ~ Approx. 40k words. Additional pages are sneak peeks to future books!

This is not erotica, just a good old fashioned romance.

Gerard's Beauty:

A not so classic retelling of Beauty and the Beast, as seen through the eyes of the villain...

Betty Hart has had it with men. Jilted in love, her life now consists of shelving books by day, watching too much Anime by night, and occasionally dressing up like a superhero on the weekends with her fellow ‘Bleeding Heart’ nerds. Men are not welcome and very much unwanted. Especially the sexy Frenchman who saunters into her library reeking of alcohol and looking like he went one too many rounds in the ring.

Gerard Caron is in trouble. Again. Caught with his pants down (literally) he’s forced to seek asylum on Earth while his fairy godmother tries to keep Prince Charming from going all ‘Off with his head’. Maybe, messing around with the King’s daughter hadn’t been such a great idea after all, not that Gerard knew the silly redhead was a princess. But his fairy godmother knows the only way to save his life is to finally pair Gerard with his perfect mate, whether he’s willing or not.

From the moment Gerard lays eyes on the nerdy librarian he knows he must have her, but Betty is unlike any woman he’s ever known. He thought Betty would come as willingly to his bed as every other woman before her, but she is a woman who demands respect and even… horror of all horrors… love. Is it possible for a self-proclaimed Casanova to change his ways?

Long length Novella ~ Approx. 41k words of the actual story. Included in the Amazon page count are teasers from future books, thank you!

This is not an erotica, but it is a good old fashioned romance.

Red and Her Wolf:

Long ago there lived a beautiful child. Her name was Violet. Fair of skin, with blonde hair and large blue eyes. Born of wild magic, she was a woman with a child’s heart. Innocent and lovely, but not at all what she seemed--you see Violet went by another name: The Heartsong.

She was the child of fairy magic, the physical manifestation of all fae kinds unbridled power. Cosseted and pampered, she grew up in isolation, never knowing who she really was, or why there were those who’d seek to harm her.

Ewan of the Blackfoot Clan is a wolf with a problem. He’s been sent to kill the Heartsong, but the moment he lays eyes on the blonde beauty he knows he’ll defy the evil fae he works for to claim Violet as his own.

This is the tale of Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, as it really happened...

This is not an erotica, just a good old fashioned romance.

All together in one complete collection, included are bonus deleted scenes in Hatter and Wolf. Also, several recipies from the books, to include Alice Hu's Red Queen's Revenge!

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.

    Short, but good

    All the stories were a little short, but they were all good. A each was a quick read that flowed smoothly into the next story in the series.

    If fantasy romance is your thing, you won't be disappointed!

    I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!

    I think the title says it all. I loved the originality, the funniness, and even the fact it was a little sad in some parts. I can't wait for the rest of the series. My favorite was The Hatter's story. When I saw Tim Burton's movie, I thought Alice should've stayed with Hatter. Now my wish has come true. The other two are also outstanding. Well worth the money.

    The Mad Hatter 
    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




    Gerard's Beauty 
    Danika is the fairy godmother extraordinaire. Just ask her and she’ll tell you exactly that. She has four of her Bad Five boys to help find their mates and keep them out of trouble. Only she is a bit late with Gerard. Only one thing left to do if she is going to keep Gerard’s head connected to his body….send him to Earth.




    Gerard Caron is in trouble once again. True he had trouble keeping away from the pretty ladies but this time it was not his fault. Unfortunately when it’s the king’s daughter you have been caught with, and your pants aren’t quite where they should be, you are in big trouble. He made an enemy long ago with the head mistress of Fairy Inc. and she is in charge of his verdict.




    Betty Hart is living in a small Missouri town, playing librarian and helping take care of her special nephew. After good looking James broke her heart, the last thing she needs is to fall for this seductive Frenchman that’s hanging around the library.




    Never heard of Gerard in the fairy tales? That’s because that fairy mistress rewrote his story and removed him from it. This second Kingdom story is as enjoyable as Her Mad Hatter. When two people from different worlds collide, you never know what magic will abound.
    **Sexual content




    Red and Her Wolf by Marie Hunt
    Ewan of the Blackfoot Clan was working for a nasty fairy to help provide for his clan. So off to grandma’s house he went for his mission. He didn’t expect to find his mate that night. Nor to have her torn from his clutches just as quickly. For five hundred years Ewan has continued to search in Kingdom to find her, often almost slipping off the edge of sanity. He must find his Red.




    Violet, also known as The Heartsong and Red, has been living in Alaska with her Aunt Mir. She is slowly remembering her past. Wolves and death. Her hatred for the big bad black wolf has grown over all these years. She dreams about returning to Kingdom to kill that wolf.




    The third book in this series continues as the first two, a well spun story from an old fairy tale. The author did a great job of grabbing this readers emotions to sympathize with the Wolf, so many years of pain and sorrow as he searched for his Red. She also lets the reader drop in and see how the Hatter and Alice are doing. Enjoyable stories.

    Fun Twists on Fairy Tales

    All three novellas predictably follow the typical romance story line. What saves these tales from being too cliche is that they are all very well written (aside from some typos)& highly descriptive. The reader gets sucked in easily. While they don't require too much thought, these stories are a fun escape. I bought the second book with the last two stories.

    Fun, Adventures, Twist on Old Tails

    In this Collection we get the first three Kingdom books all together. Each story pulls you in and doesn't let go. The novella's have a unique twist on old faerie tales. The Bad Five are not as bad as they are made out to be in the original fairy tales. They are just misunderstood and need the love and understanding from their true mate. Each of the characters is flawed with real issues that many will relate to. Their paths are never simple or straight forward, but there is someone for everyone, at least if Danika (their fairy godmother) has her say.

    Her Mad Hatter:
    This story is about Alice and Hatter. Not the original Alice, but the one ment for this Bad Boy. Hatter has been burned so many times by Alice's that he is tired of trying to find his Alice. Alice has been in love with Hatter since she meet him in her dreams when she was 8 and now that she has found him will Hatter let her in….

    I loved just loved this novel. It's my favorite out of the first three. It was emotional roller coaster, exciting, fun, funny, sensual and a memorable read. Boy oh boy Hatter is just down right off the charts HOT in this tail.

    Gerard's Beauty:
    This story is a new take on "Beauty and the Beast". Gerard plays the field with the ladies and ends up playing around with the wrong one; now his fairy godmother has to send him to earth to find his mate or else…. On earth he has to spend a month getting to know Betty, a manga and comic loving librarian.

    This novel was fun, funny, emotional, and sensual to read. Betty and Gerard fit together. I enjoy this twist on an old tail.

    Red and Her Wolf:
    This story is about Ewan (the Wolf) and Violet (the Heartsong aka Red). The Heartsong is the incarnation of all the black magic from (The Ten) "the top ten most powerful fairies" and one of (The Ten) wants to kill the Heartsong to steal all that power. In a twist of fate the Wolf is their to kill her, but once he knows she is his mate he can not do it. In an event to save Violet she is hiding away, but they also take her away from her mate. Over time the Wolf has slowly been going mad looking for her.

    This novel was a little harder for me to like and get into. I enjoyed by the end. I did not like all the hate in Violet, but as the story progressed you understand why.

    The creativity in Marie Hall's stories are fun and adventures. It is amazing how someone can come up with those wonderful twisted stories that are full of charm, humour, sensuality and sweetness.

    I have read each of the books in this series as individual relea

    I have read each of the books in this series as individual releases - each has a unique twist to a faerie tale, with a dash of pop culture, a smidgen of danger and a pinch of humor, all sealed with a steamy connection between hero and heroine that makes these stories perfect for the adult faerie tale lover that is tired of the sanitized family versions. 




    Danika, the faerie godmother to the bad boys of the tales (The Beast from Beauty and the Beast, the Mad Hatter, the Wolf from Little Red Riding Hood and a Genie from Aladdin's days) is convinced that her "boys" need love, and seeks to push, wheedle, spell, cajole and even place them in places to meet their intended.  




    Each of the characters is flawed with real issues that many will relate to. Their paths are never simple or straight forward, but there is someone for everyone, at least if Danika has her say. 




    Three fairly quick-reading novellas are in this collection - one that you will whip through and look for more, but will leave you smiling at the end.




    I received eBook copies of the 3 volumes that comprise this edition from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
