Something sexy is afoot at Rackham's School for Young Ladies. Half-faerie, half-elf Hans Winter broke the heart of the wrong princess. Cursed to live as a statue at a school for human girls, only true loveŚand true braveryŚcan free him.
December Worth never met a rule she didn't want to break, as the numerous institutions that have expelled her can attest. Bravery she can handle. Love she's less sure about, especially if it involves believing in fairytales. A kiss seems like the last thing these lonely souls would share, until one night in the cemetery where Hans stands trapped, Fate brings stone and flesh together . . .

Bad girl meets bad boy and the fireworks begin! WINTER'S TALE is a hawt erotic novel which will melt all the snow in winter. December Worth is a bad girl with authority issues. She's in her rebellious stage, which is evident through all the boarding schools she's been kicked out of and is now stuck at Rackham's School for Young Ladies.
This is the most desolate place for December. December susses out the queen bee at this place and easily surpasses her in coolness. It helps that December is very experienced in assessing people and what makes them tick.
This story could be just a bad girl getting back at daddy and her catfights with the girls at this new school. Instead, a mystery is involved. Something supernatural is going on and revolves around a sexy male statue in a graveyard. The statue is a frozen Hans Winter who crossed the wrong queen - an irrational faerie queen to be exact.
Ms. Holly always delivers a spellbinding love story with interesting characters. In WINTER'S TALE, the world building is magical as well as deadly. The twists and turns in the plot are not all expected. There are a couple of red herrings which could catch a reader off guard. This makes the story more compelling and enjoyable.
The weaving of the fae world with mortal domain is delightful as it concludes in a fairy tale ending. The epilogue neatly wraps up a hurt December couldn't overcome on her own. With her perfect mate by her side, she's grown up and old wounds are healed.
This is a sweet tale mingled with romance, revenge, obsession and above all, a happily ever after. Recommended for paranormal romance readers who are looking for their bad boy Prince Charming.
