In Lustfully Ever After, classic fairy tales are reimagined for an adult audience with twists (and kinks) to keep readers entertained. In Michelle Augello-Page's romantically charged BDSM tale "Wolf Moon," Little Red Riding Hood is the big bad wolf, while Kristina Lloyd rewrites "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" as a scorching hot MFM threesome in "The Shoes That Were Danced to Pieces." Shanna Germain's "Mirror Mirror" shows the sensual Sapphic side of Snow
White's stepmother and Andrea Dale pens a contemporary version of "The Steadfast
Tin Soldier" in the poignantly erotic "Steadfast."
This delightful collection of fairy tales will lead you down a magical path into forbidden romance and erotic love. You won’t need those bread crumbs to find your way home—for home is where the heart is and the authors of Lustfully Ever After know your heart’s most wicked and secret desires.
The erotica anthology Lustfully Ever After is a collection of fairy tales that have been re-written with a more "adult" spin to them. I love fairy tales and was excited to read this collection. Unfortunately, it did not live up to my expectations. I am aware that some readers don’t mind the content of an erotic novel as long as it’s "hot and heavy on the sexy," but
I need a good story. In fact, I find myself tempted to skip over most love scenes in romance novels if I find the story content to be lacking. With the exception of two stories that I found to be exceptionally good--"Gretel’s Lament" by Jeanette Grey and "Matches" by Anna Meadows, I could have passed on this anthology.
