Touch Of Beauty - Jessica Aspen1600x2400

 

Ever since the day a bedraggled fairy walked into his casino and turned him into a troll, Tanner Scott has been in a bad mood. Now, the casino is losing money, the dwarves in the family mine are on strike, and he can’t keep a housekeeper to save his life. When one of their clients nearly drains the casino’s bank Tanner loses it, and decrees the man must pay the consequences.

Bonita can’t help wanting to rescue her dad from his downward spiral so she heads to the casino to face the man who owns her father’s debt—Tanner Scott.  What she doesn’t expect is how desperate being a troll has made Tanner. Or that behind the scenes is a magical fairy with a mission. Or that love might finally conquer all—trolls, kidnappings…and her own disbelief.

Discover Jessica Aspen’s fairy tale twists—it’s Magic!

Writing Intertwined Shifter Romance

Thursdays Bite

a blog for the fantastical everywhere

SCARLETT: A Sexy Shifter Fairytale Romance is almost here! Happy dancing!!!

It’s been way more of a challenge than I thought to write intertwined romance stories, especially about shifters. Way back when I first wrote GOLDI I knew I had to do something with those extra bear brothers, Cam and Abe Beresford. Three bears, but only one romance left me two romances short. But I also knew that I wanted to twist the fairy tale Rose White and Rose Red, a tale about two sisters and a bear shifter prince, so I had my solution.

Of course, in the fairy tale only one sister gets the bear, the other gets his brother, but that worked out perfectly for me: two sisters, two bear shifters, two romances. Bingo! I took me a long time to get to the writing of Cam and Abe’s story and when I finally did I was faced with one fairy tale and two romances. Urg! What to do?

How did I split one fairy tale between two books?

Well, here’s how I solved the issue: I decided that each book would have aspects of the original fairy tale with Scarlett being the main story of the encounters with the dwarf. You see, every fairy tale needs a villain and in Rose White and Rose Red the villain is this mean selfish dwarf who has turned the prince into a bear and wants his treasure. The girls run into him several times and try to help him out of predicaments, but he’s always ungrateful and rude. Finally he pushes the bear too far and the bear kills him.

Perfect! I have my story. But…

But, once again, two books, two girls, two bear shifters and two romances. Solution? Two dwarfs! Although in my book the villains aren’t dwarfs, instead they are just mean, cranky or crazy bear shifters.  What this let me do is twist the same fairy tale two ways. Love it!

I hope you enjoy both Scarlett and Silver’s stories. They were harder to write then I thought they’d be, but I learned a lot about myself as a writer, and bear shifer romance in particular

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think about writing the same story from different points of view? Or your opinion on sexy shifter romance and fairy tales in general. I love to hear from you. 🙂

Cheers!

The Dark Huntsman

A Fantasy Romance of the Black Court

sneak peak

 

She used her body, her anger, and her fear. Anger at the Faery Queen for the constant harassment and extermination of her family and her tribe. Fear of what came next, what might be riding on the coattails of the sunset.

Pulsing with power, she paced deeper and deeper into the labyrinth, static lifting her long black hair into a crackling wild nimbus. She pulled and twisted the vibrant orange and red of her anxiety into the alchemy of the earth’s brown and green energy, weaving them together into an invisible net.

Each measured step layered power into the fabric of her spell. Each movement of the athame directed the energy where it needed to go. Just as darkness dipped its toes into the valley, she turned the last curve into the double spiral’s center.

Her rage and fear coalesced into the final strands of the spell leaving her shaking and exhausted as the last of the afterglow faded from the sky, a stunning show of deep purple on grey. A sonorous quiet descended. No birds, no coyotes. Just the wind sending small trails of skittering leaves through the labyrinth. Prickles of anticipation trembled on her bare spine.

It would be here soon. It was coming fast. And it was coming for her.
