Review: Kingdom Series Collection (Kingdom #1-3) by Marie Hall

Her Mad Hatter:

Alice is all grown up. Running the Mad Hatter's Cupcakery and Tea Shoppe is a delicious job, until fate--and a fairy godmother with a weakness for bad boys--throws her a curveball. Now, Alice is the newest resident of Wonderland, where the Mad Hatter fuels her fantasies and thrills her body with his dark touch.

The Mad Hatter may have a voice and a body made for sex, but he takes no lovers. Ever. But a determined fairy godmother has forced Alice into Wonderland--and his arms. Now, as desire and madness converge, the Hatter must decide if he will fight the fairy godmother's mating--or fight for Alice.

Gerard's Beauty:

A not so classic retelling of Beauty and the Beast, as seen through the eyes of the villain... Betty Hart has had it with men. Jilted in love, her life now consists of shelving books by day, watching too much Anime by night, and occasionally dressing up like a superhero on the weekends with her fellow ?Bleeding Heart? nerds. Men are not welcome and very much unwanted. Especially the sexy Frenchman who saunters into her library reeking of alcohol and looking like he went one too many rounds in the ring.

Gerard Caron is in trouble. Again. Caught with his pants down (literally) he?s forced to seek asylum on Earth while his fairy godmother tries to keep Prince Charming from going all ?Off with his head?. Maybe, messing around with the King?s daughter hadn?t been such a great idea after all, not that Gerard knew the silly redhead was a princess. But his fairy godmother knows the only way to save his life is to finally pair Gerard with his perfect mate, whether he?s willing or not.

From the moment Gerard lays eyes on the nerdy librarian he knows he must have her, but Betty is unlike any woman he?s ever known. He thought Betty would come as willingly to his bed as every other woman before her, but she is a woman who demands respect and even? horror of all horrors? love. Is it possible for a self-proclaimed Casanova to change his ways?

Red and Her Wolf:

Long ago there lived a beautiful child. Her name was Violet. Fair of skin, with blonde hair and large blue eyes. Born of wild magic, she was a woman with a child?s heart. Innocent and lovely, but not at all what she seemed--you see Violet went by another name: The Heartsong.
She was the child of fairy magic, the physical manifestation of all fae kinds unbridled power. Cosseted and pampered, she grew up in isolation, never knowing who she really was, or why there were those who?d seek to harm her.

Ewan of the Blackfoot Clan is a wolf with a problem. He?s been sent to kill the Heartsong, but the moment he lays eyes on the blonde beauty he knows he?ll defy the evil fae he works for to claim Violet as his own. 

This is the tale of Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, as it really happened.

5 Stars

Review: Kingdom Series Collection (Kingdom #1-3) by Marie Hall

In this Collection we get the first three Kingdom books all together. Each story pulls you in and doesn't let go. The novella's have a unique twist on old faerie tales. The Bad Five are not as bad as they are made out to be in the original fairy tales. They are just misunderstood and need the love and understanding from their true mate. Each of the characters is flawed with real issues that many will relate to. Their paths are never simple or straight forward, but there is someone for everyone, at least if Danika (their fairy godmother) has her say. 

Her Mad Hatter:
This story is about Alice and Hatter. Not the original Alice, but the one ment for this Bad Boy. Hatter has been burned so many times by Alice's that he is tired of trying to find his Alice. Alice has been in love with Hatter since she meet him in her dreams when she was 8 and now that she has found him will Hatter let her in…. 

I loved just loved this novel. It's my favorite out of the first three. It was emotional roller coaster, exciting, fun, funny, sensual and a memorable read. Boy oh boy Hatter is just down right off the charts HOT in this tail. 

Gerard's Beauty:
This story is a new take on "Beauty and the Beast". Gerard plays the field with the ladies and ends up playing around with the wrong one; now his fairy godmother has to send him to earth to find his mate or else…. On earth he has to spend a month getting to know Betty, a manga and comic loving librarian. 

This novel was fun, funny, emotional, and sensual to read. Betty and Gerard fit together. I enjoy this twist on an old tail.

Red and Her Wolf:
This story is about Ewan (the Wolf) and Violet (the Heartsong aka Red). The Heartsong is the incarnation of all the black magic from (The Ten) "the top ten most powerful fairies" and one of (The Ten) wants to kill the Heartsong to steal all that power. In a twist of fate the Wolf is their to kill her, but once he knows she is his mate he can not do it. In an event to save Violet she is hiding away, but they also take her away from her mate. Over time the Wolf has slowly been going mad looking for her.

This novel was a little harder for me to like and get into. I enjoyed by the end. I did not like all the hate in Violet, but as the story progressed you understand why. 

The creativity in Marie Hall's stories are fun and adventures. It is amazing how someone can come up with those wonderful twisted stories that are full of charm, humour, sensuality and sweetness.

Critical Intelligence had some funny moments to I really enjoyed.  My favorite is the first quote the moment someone learns they are going to be a daddy I had to smile it reminded me of the day our son was born and how my hubby cried and passed out after he was born. ^_^  Check out my review here!

 " Nothing is wrong." Green smiled. "Well, not unless you consider being a father a bad thing."      "Being a father?"       "I'm going to be a ..." Darkness swallowed him whole as he passed out cold. ~ Critical Intelligence by Mandy M…
