Folktales and fairy tales are living stories; as part of the oral tradition, they change and evolve as they are retold from generation to generation. In the last thirty years, however, revision has become an art form of its own, with tales intentionally revised to achieve humorous effect, send political messages, add different cultural or regional elements, try out new narrative voices, and more. These revisions take all forms, from short stories to novel-length narratives to poems, plays, musicals, films and advertisements. The resulting tales paint the tales from myriad perspectives, using the broad palette of human creativity. This study examines folktale revisions from many angles, drawing on examples primarily from revisions of Western European traditional tales, such as those of the Grimm Brothers and Charles Perrault. Also discussed are new folktales that combine traditional storylines with commentary on modern life. The conclusion considers how revisionists poke fun at and struggle to understand stories that sometimes made little sense to start with.
WHEN DESIRES BECOME DANGEROUS, LOVE CAN BE DEADLY Whispers of foul play circulate through an upscale community when beautiful Justine Milner disappears. But only when her body is discovered more than two years later is her ex-husband, Michael Frome, accused of murder. Portrait artist Suzie Strickland learned firsthand how manipulative and cruel Justine could be when they were rivals for Mike's affection in high school. She believes in Mike's innocence and suspects she's found a chilling link to a darker side of Justine's privileged life. How deep was her involvement with a mysterious group called The Mulligan Club and their seductive, dangerous games? The answers may come too late.

It seems as if Tyler Balfour's mother was the only woman in town his father didn't marry. So he's as surprised as anyone when he discovers Anderson left him a third of everything he owned. Tyler doesn't plan on sticking around. After all, the good people of Heyday already believe he's responsible for ruining their town. Not that he cares what they think. He was only doing his job. Now that he's back in Heyday, he's starting to realize his job just might be finding out what Mallory Rackham--one of the town's favorite daughters--is so desperately trying to hide. Three brothers with different mothers. Brought together by their father's last act. The town of Heyday, Virginia, will never be the same--and neither will they.
No one is more surprised than Bryce McClintock when he is mentioned in his father's will. The two had been estranged for fourteen years, and Bryce hadn't expected—or wanted— any part of his father's estate. But the former FBI agent, smarting from a botched final assignment and finding himself in need of respite, heads to Heyday—only to discover that Lara Lynmore, the woman who directly contributed to his on-the-job problem, has also come to town.
Includes "The Passionate G-Man," in which a secret agent finds himself at the mercy of a fiesty redhead when he is injured, and "His Business, Her Baby," in which a wealthy businessman finds his life complicated by a headstrong pregnant woman. Original.
More Than A Game, #2 A ballplayer and a team owner would give anything for a championship—even their hearts. . . After inheriting majority ownership of the San Francisco Goliaths baseball team, Hunter Collins wants to prove to herself—and the rest of the league—that she's got what it takes to build a champion. Her first move is to trade for a hot left-fielder. He's got it all, speed, power, and a desire to win. Not to mention undeniable charm. Marco Santiago is tired of being the new player in town. After four teams in six years, he's facing free agency at the end of the season. He wants nothing more than a long-term contract and a World Series win. Hitting on his new owner probably isn't the best way to get it, but love may be the most powerful challenger either of them has ever faced. . . Warning: Strong language, consummated love scenes, and some baseball clichés. "Smart, fun, and sexy. A great romance read." –New York Times Bestselling Author, Kat Martin 77,606 Words
