Hearts Hearts & Spades Book 1
by A. Blackbird Genre: Dark Paranormal Romance, Wonderland Retelling
Mad as hatters, here they all are. To home and from, Rose is very far.
What would you do to claw your way back to the only home you've ever known? How far would you go to win?
To save herself, Rose must work with a dangerous, mysterious ally Night, who might just be her greatest threat.
When the rebels attack the small Hearts village, blacksmith Rose is thrown down the forbidden well and down it, she finds the Three Sisters of horror stories and folklore. With half the village down the well, the Sisters open the doors to the Hatterthon--a deadly game of murder and survival.
If Rose ever wants to make it out alive, she must be more brutal than any other player and stick with Night--the mysterious player she's allied with, threatens all she knows with his dangerous smiles and even deadlier eyes. In the Hatterthon, everyone is a little mad...
And the only way out is to win. By any means necessary.
HEARTS is a Wonderland retelling, hold the Alice! Set in a medieval Wonderland, this series welcomes old favourites with a dark twist to a beloved story.

Genre: Dark Paranormal Romance, Red Riding Hood Retelling
A Dark Retelling of Little Red Riding Hood.
The villagers call her Red.
It's the colour of her lips, her cloak, and the blood that stains her when she returns from the woods. The villagers call her Red for many reasons, but most of all, they're too afraid to call her what she really is. Witch. But when a wolf stalks the village, Red might be the only one who can save them from the beast...the beast who has his sights set on her already. Red races against the three days until the full moon to uncover the wolf's identity, find out what he wants from her, and save herself. To hell with the village, Red just wants to save herself. That's what good witches do.
A dark re-telling of the old tale, where Red Riding Hood isn't so little, and mightn't be so good after all.
