WOODCUTTER'S GRIM SERIES is collection of short stories about the inhabitants of Woodcutter's Grim who are anything but ordinary. These hauntingly romantic tales will give you the chills and have you swooning within the same sentence. In Volume 2, the author focuses on the Shaussegeny family who has a terrible curse placed upon them. They are werewolves who are doomed to suffer until they learn to accept their fate.

Sometimes the very thing you fear is the thing you need the most.

Moonlight Becomes You is about Heather Rowe who after spending a night that was much more than it seem with Lance Shaussegeny discovers she becomes pregnant with his child who displays some curious symptoms. Now one year after their night together, Heather has come in search of Lance once again as her last hope. Her son is sick and Lance may be the only one who knows how to cure him.

Many relive past wrongs over in their mind, but nothing could be worse than reliving them in the flesh.

Bewitched is not your ordinary fairytale.

Loosely based on "The Little Mermaid", Bewitched is about Glynnis who is instantly drawn to the mysterious man that appears out of nowhere across the lake from her family's home. She knows about curses all too well since her own family is plagued by one, but she may find out that Aric has an even darker secret.

This story is an amazingly dark fairy tale laced with some romance, making for a very intriguing story. The descriptive imagery helped me to imagine just what this world must be like for these characters and grow to love them for it.

The characters are very well written, easily luring readers into this fantastic new world full of secrets, curses, and love. Glynnis is part of a family that is plagued with a curse and because of this, she has to go through plenty of problems in order to make things right.

Aric was a mysterious character who I enjoyed figuring out along with Glynnis.

In One Night of Eternity, Gavin did the one thing that mates were warned against and that was betraying his mate. Now he will pay for it by reliving that moment for eternity.

This was by far one of the most emotion packed stories in this series yet. Much of it is bittersweet and the mixed emotions and fears of the characters practically ooze off the page. It was very easy to become engrossed in Gavin and Marnie's story and I couldn't help but feel empathy and even joy at times. Marnie and Gavin both have scars because of their actions, but throughout the book they get a chance to finally accept them and possibly have a happy ending of their own.

The scenery and descriptive language in the story helps set the mood for this haunting tale. The imagery used was beautiful and creative. I enjoyed every minute of this story and couldn't put it down.

I recommend this story to those who love a romance with some relatable characters and tons of emotion packed scenes.

Beauty is the Beast comes with a new twist.

I love fairy tales and I am always happy to check out new retellings and this one is definitely one of the best. I love the dark romance and the twists and turns that are added into this story.

Ransom brings some real depth to the beast character which I love because not all retellings of this story have very much depth to the beast's character. This story is so much more than a retelling though as it brings in a magic of its own and drew me in, keeping me glued to the pages for hours.

I highly recommend Beauty is the Beast not only to fans of fairytales, but anyone who loves a good paranormal romance.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good dark fairytale.
