Fairy tales are making a comeback. Earlier in the spring, Julie Roberts starred as the evil queen in MIRROR MIRROR - a lighthearted take on Snow White. This weekend, Charlize Theron portrays a monstrous queen in SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN. Perhaps SLEEPING BEAUTY is next for the silver screen.
In the meantime, Kristine Grayson offers her own modern twist of classic fairy tales. Kristine is celebrating Sourcebooks' reissue of THOROUGHLY KISSED - Book 2 in the Charming Books series:
Sleeping Beauty has sworn off kissing...
Emma awakens to an entirely different world than the one she lived in a thousand years ago, and although she's the real Sleeping Beauty, her life is no fairy tale. After parting ways with her supposed Prince Charming, she's determined to be a normal girl—she hides her magic and swears off kissing strange men.
But her gorgeous boss Michael knows there 's something unusual about Emma, and he thinks she's as infuriating as she is beautiful. Now Emma needs to teach Michael a lesson, which means mastering her magic. She knows she's flirting with danger, but after one look at Michael's perfect lips, all she can think is, "What's another thousand years ... ?"
Welcome to the fractious fairy tale world of Kristine Grayson, where the bumpy road to happily ever after is paved with surprises ...
