Overview

Nora Barr’s struggling law practice gets a boost when she meets a tall, dark, and handsome stranger who has a snake wrapped around his arm and a short sidekick with a mean mouth. The stranger claims he’s got custody of Sleeping Beauty, and he needs Nora’s help to protect her. Against her better judgment, Nora helps—and her life changes forever.

The inspiration for Rusch’s novel, Utterly Charming, written under her pen name Kristine Grayson, this fractured fairy tale won France’s prestigious fantasy award, Le Prix Imaginales.

“Rusch is a great storyteller.”
—Romantic Times

“…a clever urban fantasy filled with wizards and magic.”

International bestselling writer Kristine Kathryn Rusch has won two Hugo awards, a World Fantasy Award, and three Asimov’s Readers Choice Awards. Her latest novel is Diving into the Wreck from Pyr. Golden Gryphon has collected her recent award winning stories in Recovering Apollo 8 And Other Stories. “The Strangeness of the Day” appears in that collection. “The Strangeness of the Day” won France’s most prestigious fantasy award, Le Prix Imaginales, and served as the inspiration for Rusch’s first paranormal romance, Utterly Charming, which she published under the name Kristine Grayson.

Since then, Grayson has made a name for herself publishing light, slightly off-skew romance novels about Greek Gods, fairy tale characters, and the modern world. Her novel, Utterly Charming, won the Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice Award.
