"Once upon a time...." So many of us loved fairy tales when we were children. Princesses and magic, evil sorcerers and wicked witches, curses and dark surprises -- and above all, a handsome prince who could see beyond surface beauty to the pure spirit shining within the heroine. Now we can recapture that childhood magic in a very adult way with an erotic fairy tale from author Gwen Williams. During one bleak, bitterly cold winter's night, Black Bear seeks refuge at the hearth in Rose Red's cottage. Knowing that it is wrong to have feelings for an ursine creature, Rose Red stifles her longing. Heartbroken at Black Bear's departure in the springtime, she wonders if she will ever find a man who possesses the same warmth of spirit and tenderness as her beloved Black Bear. As she seeks love in a string of unsuitable-and ultimately unworthy-suitors, her thoughts keep returning to the rhyme that Black Bear said to her one night when she played a little too roughly with him, "Rose Red, Rose Red, would you have your suitor dead?" To My Readers: It seems just the tiniest bit ironic that something I loved as a child, reading fairy tales, should inform my writing as an adult, and yet there it is. This fairy tale is the first in a twopart series about the sisters Snow White and Rose Red. In this story you will meet Rose Red and Black Bear. I hope that you love reading the story as much as I loved writing it.
