The fairy-tale writer who never got his own happily ever after

His stories are known throughout the world and several of them have even been further popularized by Disney and Pixar. When fairy-tales are mentioned, it is either his name or the Brothers Grimm that come to mind, and yet, while one might imagine that a man like Hans Christian Andersen would have married for love and lived happily ever after, the truth is that he never experienced the great romance that he always dreamed of.Born in Odense, Denmark, in 1805 to a father who worked as a shoemaker and a mother who worked as a washerwoman, his family was quite poor. Even so, it was Andersen’s father who introduced Andersen to literature by reading the Arabian Nights to him. But after Andersen’s father died in 1816, following an illness that he contracted during the Napoleonic Wars (which he enlisted to fight in from 1812-1814), and Andersen’s mother re-married, Andersen left…

The Harlot Countess by Joanna Shupe

Synopsis: Lady Hawkins’s debut was something she’d rather forget—along with her first marriage. Today, the political cartoonist is a new woman. A thoroughly modern woman. So much so that her clamoring public believes she’s a man… FACT: Drawing under a male pseudonym, Maggie is known as Lemarc. Her (his!) favorite object of ridicule: Simon Barrett, Earl of Winchester. He’s a rising star in Parliament—and a former confidant and love interest of Maggie’s who believed a rumor that vexes her to this day. FICTION: Maggie is the Half-Irish Harlot who seduced her best friend’s husband on the eve of their wedding. She is to be feared and loathed as she will lift her skirts for anything in breeches. Still crushed by Simon’s betrayal, Maggie has no intention of letting the ton crush her as well. In fact, Lemarc’s cartoons have made Simon a laughingstock…but now it appears that Maggie may have…

Sinful Rewards 11 – Second Excerpt

This post has adult content. If you are under the age of eighteen years old and/or sensitive to adult language/situations, please do not read this post. Here’s another spicy excerpt from Sinful Rewards 11, releasing May 12th (Tuesday)! *** “You’re not inside me.” “That’ll change soon.” Hawke extracts a condom package from the plastic fishbowl positioned on his makeshift nightstand. His furnishings are pitiful. In this small way, he needs me. The man has no clue how to spend his money. “Good.” I cup my small breasts, squeezing, offering them to him. “Because I need you.” When he touches me, we merge into one, and my doubts disappear. I belong with him as I’ve never belonged anywhere else. “You’re torturing me, love.” Hawke rips the package open and rolls the condom on his rigid cock, his gaze fixed on my nude form. I spread my thighs, showing him my pink…

Modern princes and princesses – the real fairytale stories. Part 2

I initially planned for a more involved post for the second installment of modern princes and princesses, but since the British royal family has just been blessed with a new member, I’ve decided that this post should center around Prince William and Princess Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. I’m not sure many other royal families have gained as much notoriety over the past thirty four years as the British one has, ever since Diana Spencer said ‘yes’ to Prince Charles. A turbulent time awaited the House of Windsor back then, and while I’m not sure how talked about they were in the US during the 80’s and 90’s, I can assure you that they were the center of many lively debates on the other side of the ‘pond.’But while most of the talk before was based on scandal, it seems to have taken a turn for the better,…
