Fairy Tale Giveaway Hop!
US addresses only, sorry to my international readers! There will be more international giveaways in a couple months.
Hello lovely people and welcome to another giveaway hop :D. This month the theme is fairy tales and my particular favorite approach: retellings! For this hop I am giving away TWO books by the awesome Jim C. Hines. Specifically, the first two books of his Princess series which involves retellings of Snow White, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty (though don’t call her that!). First, I can assure you these books are awesome, check out my five star review of The Stepsister Scheme to find out why. If you still want more, here are the descriptions:
The Stepsister Scheme Description: You know how all those old fairy tales take you through lots of scary adventures till you finally reach that inevitable line: “And they lived happily ever after…” Guess what? It’s not true. Life in never-never land isn’t all sweetness and light. Cinderella – whose real name is Danielle Whiteshore (nee Danielle de Glas) – does marry Prince Armand. And (if you can ignore the pigeon incident) their wedding is a dream-come-true.
But not long after the “happily ever after,” Danielle is attacked by her stepsister Charlotte, who suddenly has all sorts of magic to call upon. And though Talia – otherwise known as Sleeping Beauty – comes to the rescue (she’s a martial arts master, and all those fairy blessings make her almost unbeatable), Charlotte gets away.
That’s when Danielle discovers a number of disturbing facts: Armand has been kidnapped and taken to the realm of the Fairies; Danielle is pregnant with his child; and the Queen has her very own Secret Service that consists of Talia and Snow (White, of course). Snow is an expert at mirror magic and heavy-duty flirting.
Can three princesses track down Armand and extract both the prince and themselves from the clutches of some of fantasyland’s most nefarious villains?
The Mermaid’s Madness Description: There is an old story — you might have heard it — about a young mermaid, the daughter of a king, who saved the life of a human prince and fell in love.
So innocent was her love, so pure her devotion, that she would pay any price for the chance to be with her prince. She gave up her voice, her family, and the sea, and became human. But the prince had fallen in love with another woman.
The tales say the little mermaid sacrificed her own life so that her beloved prince could find happiness with his bride.
The tales lie.
Also if that isn’t exciting enough, The Mermaid’s Madness is also signed by Jim C. Hines :D, so awesome it’s hard to giveaway, haha!
So now I’m sure you want to know how to enter ;-), just fill out the Rafflecopter below and remember that this is US addresses only because I’m shipping them myself, sorry :(.
