A Fantasy Romance of the Black Court

Want a reminder? Fan me on Facebook HERE and I’ll be posting the free days that are coming up.  October 31st and November 1st, 2013

I’ve been twisting fairy tales for several years now and one of my favorite fairy tales to twist is Snow White. Unlike other paranormal romance authors who twist fairy tales my books do not stick to the story. They wind and bend their way through a brand new tale. Here’s the blurb for The Dark Huntsman:

An evil queen, a dangerous man, and a witch, tangled together in a tale of Snow White…

Desperate to save the last of her family from the murderous Faery Queen, Trina Mac Elvy weaves a spell of entrapment. But instead of a common soldier, the queen has released the Dark Huntsman, a full blooded fae with lethal powers.

Caged for treason, Logan Ni Brennan, is ready to do anything to win free of the manipulative queen, even if it includes running a last errand for her…murdering a witch. The sight of Trina, ready to fight despite the odds, gives him another option: use the witch as a chess piece, put the queen’s son on the throne, and bring down the queen forever.

As the queen slides into insanity and her closest advisor makes plans to succeed to the throne, Logan secrets Trina away in the enchanted forest and makes a decisive move in his dangerous game of manipulation. But the gaming tables of fate turn on him, and when Trina’s life is threatened he discovers he risks more than his freedom…he risks his heart.

Dare to enter Jessica Aspen’s world of steamy, fantasy romance in her new twisted fairy tale trilogy: Tales of the Black Court…

As you can see the evil queen is not Snow White’s step-mother, in fact, Trina has never met the faery queen and is no relation whatsoever. Trina is an orphan and she has a sad tale, but it’s not Snow’s tale. She’s been on the run from the queen nearly her entire life with her cousins and her aunt who make a larger appearance in Prince by Blood and Bone, book two in Tales of the Black Court (out late December). The Dark Huntsman takes on an urban fantasy feel as we start in windswept modern day Wyoming and jump into the land of the fae, Underhill. We meet two of the seven brothers of the Fir Bolg and Trina does end up cleaning a cottage, but she doesn’t share it with the brothers, instead she and Logan must discover how the two of them can take on the evil queen together and in the process they fall in love.

I enjoy leaving a few elements of the main fairy tale in my stories. You’ll find apples and witches and magical kisses. What you won’t find is a heroine who is passive, or a prince who sweeps in at the end to save the day without putting in some blood, sweat, and his own magical tears.

  3. Jessica, you’re books sound really fun. I love the idea of taking a classic fairy tale and spinning it off into a different story, like I did with Ilona’s Wolf. (I’m in the hop and not commenting to win.) Am loving Once Upon A Time, esp. the deliciously sexy yet villainous Captain Hook. 😉

  4. Sounds interesting,going to get my free book now.
