Synopsis

Screw-up Princess and Skillful Huntsman Trilogy: Book Two
A Fairy Tales of the Open Road Novel

Modern day fairy-tale princess Taylor Hatfield has problems. One: he’s a guy. Two: he’s Sleeping Beauty, the most useless princess in existence. Throw in his true love, Corentin Devereaux, a huntsman descended from child-eating witches, and Taylor’s younger brother, Atticus—this generation’s Snow White—who tried to kill him. That didn’t go so hot.

For two years, Taylor and Corentin live their Happily Ever After. But Corentin is cursed to lose his memory every seven days, including his life with Taylor—a painful reminder that he can’t provide for the man he loves. Taylor insists Corentin has the strength to succeed, and when Taylor discovers a way to break the curse, he is more than willing to pay the cost.

When an enchanted blizzard devastates Corentin’s hometown of New Orleans, Taylor is convinced Atticus is to blame and grows desperate to find him amid the Big Easy turned frozen wasteland. Corentin believes Taylor is chasing a ghost while he chases the ghosts of his own past. Old tensions scratch open scars, leaving both to wonder if they have each other’s best interests at heart. The clock is ticking until Corentin loses his memory and the rabbit hole goes so deep they may never come out.

Book #1: American Fairy Tale81JKfQz2k4L._SL1350_[3]

Modern fairy-tale princess Taylor Hatfield has problems. One: he’s a guy. Two: his perfect brother Atticus is the reincarnation of Snow White. Three: Taylor has no idea which princess he is supposed to be. Four: Taylor just left his prince (a girl) at the altar. Despite his enchanted lineage, Taylor is desperate to find his Happily Ever After away from magic, witches, and stuffy traditions. Regrettably, destiny has other plans for him. Dammit.
When word reaches Taylor that Idi the Witchking has captured Atticus, Taylor is determined to save his brother. He enlists the help of rakish and insufferable Corentin Devereaux, likewise of enchanted lineage. A malicious spell sends Taylor and Corentin on a road trip through the kitschy nostalgia of roadside Americana. To save Atticus, they must solve the puzzles put forth by Idi the Witchking. As they struggle, Taylor and Corentin’s volatile partnership sparks a flash of something more. But princesses have many enemies, and Taylor must keep his wits about him because there’s nothing worse than losing your heart… or your head.

Meet Lex Chase

madison_parker_MG_4269-WEBLex Chase once heard Stephen King say in a commercial, “We’re all going to die, I’m just trying to make it a little more interesting.” Now, she’s on a mission to make the world a hell of a lot more interesting.

Weaving tales of cinematic, sweeping adventure—and depending on how she feels that day—Lex sprinkles in high-speed chases, shower scenes, and more explosions than a Hollywood blockbuster. Her pride is in telling stories of men who kiss as much as they kick ass. If you’re going to march into the depths of hell, it better be beside the one you love.

Lex is a pop culture diva, her DVR is constantly backlogged, and unapologetically loved the ending of Lost. She wouldn’t last five minutes without technology in the event of the apocalypse and has nightmares about refusing to leave her cats behind.

She is grateful for and humbled by all the readers. She knows very well she wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them and welcomes feedback.

  4. The book sounds really good... You are right, you cannot judge a book for its cover. In my life, people have surprised me in many ways, some good and some bad. What I've learnt is that appearances are deceiving and that you must give people a chance before making up your mind.
    Good luck with the book!

    1. Thank you so much! :D In my own experiences for my love of pop culture tee shirts, baseball caps, and loud music, and movie references, some people tend to write me off. That is until I start talking about the operas I love, or my love of art history.

      People can be surprising! :D

  5. If you pre judge someone, how many people have you not given the chance to dazzle you with who they really are?

    1. You are on point, Laurie! As much as we're taught as children not to judge there's a shocking amount of it in the world. :(

  6. Someone who has become a great friend to me, I met at work. I avoided engaging with her for soooo long because she just looked so serious all the time and I never wanted to interrupt or annoy her. Then, I pretty much had to get help from her because she was the only one available. Turns out she's pretty much amazing and she totally let me literally sob on her shoulder more than once. Very thankful now that she was the only one available when I needed assistance that day :)
    Book sounds great, can't wait to read!! Congrats on the release!! :)

    1. Aaaaaw! What a sweet story Gen! In my college days I met a particular "Mean Girl" that got on everyone's last nerve with her arrogance. When I was forced into working on a project with her, she really opened up about how her arrogance was a way of protecting herself. She also thought no one would like her if she acted genuine. Bless! When she went off to grad school she let her walls down and is doing SO much better. :D

      And thank you so much! Looking forward to what you think of it! :D

  7. I try not to do it and usually succeed. Usually when I meet a stranger I expect them to be nice but I've run into a couple of people who didn't even take that into consideration. I know for sure people have judged me and expected me to act a certain way and have even told me after getting to know me that I was different than they thought I would be from the first meeting.

    1. Oh H.B! I totally understand not being what people expected. I'll chat up anyone myself, and my mother laughs at me for "never meeting a stranger." I guess that's part of UGH networking but it's also a part of cooling my nerves when I'm so anxious! Sometimes I make a friend. Sometimes they probably walk away thinking "wtf was that weird girl!"

  8. I find my first impressions are usually spot on. I'd like to know what impression they form of me though.

    1. One thing I've learned about being an author was a very telling phrase. "You are what people talk about when you're not in the room." It's interesting don't you think? No matter what you do, you could come into a situation and people could have a preconceived notion of you. We (or me) have to work hard to make sure it's a good one! :D

  11. I have learned to be patient with most everyone and give them room to bloom, although first impressions are so important. Not everyone behaves their true selves when meeting new people, though. There could be nerves, shyness, not feeling well/themselves at the moment, etc. Unless someone comes to me acting all assholery, they get a second chance. I'll also give them a chance to redeem themselves, but I won't put up with nastiness.

    2. Aw! Thanks! My brother who's normally a guy that keeps to himself just got a job as a pastry chef. He learning a whole new world of interacting with people he never would have. As well as working in a restaurant has all kinds of it's own culture. He was actually pretty shocked at first and then he realized he was going to be okay. There is some truth to if you can't take the heat get out of the kitchen!

  12. My first impressions tend to be pretty accurate but I've been surprised before. Once this girl seemed really spoiled yo me but eventually as I got to know her, she was super sweet. It's not always obvious what people are actually like. We're all complicated people after all.

    1. People definitely have layers! A fellow classmate had completely written me off as completely vapid for my wild hair and pop culture t-shirts. And then one day she finds me listening to Russian opera which I'm actually quite fond! That'll teach 'em!
