    1. I m a USA Today bestselling author who LOVES the hot stuff, both to read and to write My favorite obsessions are all things coffee, almost everything on HGTV, and dreaming up new stories.

    2. Emma Holly has done it again! In this grown up fairy tale that takes place in Ms. Holly’s Hidden universe we once again are treated to a steamy tale of sex, magic, lust and love.December Worth is a new senior at Rackham's School for Young Ladies. She is entranced by the naked statue in the attached cemetery. What she doesn’t know is that the statue is actually ½ elf ½ faerie huntsman named Hans. He has been cursed by an angry faerie queen and only true love and true bravery can free him. W [...]

    3. The characters had some promise, but the plot was just to ridiculous to be believed. I couldn't suspend my disbelief at all, and I was unable to connect to the story in any way. I wanted to like it, but it just didn't work for me.

    4. It's a short story, 103 pages, making it 3.5 in the Hidden erotic paranormal romance that touches around the fae, elves, shifters, and humans in, around, and loosely around the town of Resurrection, although this story takes place in Kingaken, New York.Holly has the first three novel-length stories in a single book and the first two shorts in a single, so you might want to wait until this one merges with the other two shorts. "Winter's Tale" does include the main characters from Move Me Duet, so [...]

    5. Bad girl meets bad boy and the fireworks begin! WINTER'S TALE is a hawt erotic novel which will melt all the snow in winter. December Worth is a bad girl with authority issues. She's in her rebellious stage, which is evident through all the boarding schools she's been kicked out of and is now stuck at Rackham's School for Young Ladies.This is the most desolate place for December. December susses out the queen bee at this place and easily surpasses her in coolness. It helps that December is very [...]

    6. Winter's Tale is a pretty naughty book that reads more like very well written high fantasy elf porn. Like something a young Legolas would have read with a flash light under the covers when his parents thought he was asleep. Winter's Tale is a naughty Narnia for grown-ups. A very rich & very precocious girl locked away in all girls boarding school gets super kinky in a graveyard with a statue of a 200 yo enchanted fairy. Caught between being a good girls gone wild story or riding on the crazy [...]

    7. Between a rock and a hard place.Yeah, couldn’t resist. But get your minds out of the gutter.Alright, keep them there, because there are a lot of hot scenes in this book, in all sorts of combinations. Yes, it’s true – there is human/fairy/elf STATUE sex in this book. But it’s OK, because they get married in the end (yeah, as if a book like this would have any other kind of ending – this isn’t Anna Karenina, ya know).This is a quick, well written and fun read, filled with wanabee mean [...]

    8. I liked the heroine, but felt the story was a little bit under-done, or maybe to out there for the short amount of pages dedicated to it.

    9. Joint review originally posted here: thebookpushers/2013/03/20/Publisher: Self-publishedPublish Date: Out nowHow we got this book: ARC from the authorSomething sexy is afoot at Rackham’s School for Young LadiesHalf-faerie, half-elf Hans Winter broke the heart of the wrong princess. Cursed to live as a statue at a school for human girls, only true love—and true bravery—can free him.

December Worth never met a rule she didn’t want to break, as the numerous institutions that have expel [...]

    10. This book was alright. It got better the more I read, but I have to say I almost stopped reading in the first chapter when she was thinking about having sex with a statue. Seriously? That's freaking weird.Though December (who names a character that?) is 18, this is more of a new adult book due to content.Hans is half fae, half elf, yet when December describes him one time, she says he has satyr legs. Either she doesn't know what a satyr is, or she meant it differently, and if that's the chance, [...]

    11. Originally posted at: longandshortreviews/boThere’s something about a man cursed for unjust reasons that makes a romance reader stand up and notice. Add in a mystery, a plea in the night and delicious naughty dreams that may or may not be real and it sweetens the pot. How could I resist? Plus, the fact that the illustrious Ms. Holly has a way with sexual encounters pretty much insured that this would be an entertaining read. I was right.The first thing the author did was introduce me to the he [...]

    12. December Worth could be called a problem child or even an instigator. The truth is that unless she sees the reason for the rule, why bother following it. She has been drifting her entire life to find something that pulls her in that direction. Once again, December has been thrown out of her boarding school and her parents have sent her to her last chance to obtain the last of her education and make something of herself. So December finds herself at Rackham’s School for Young Ladies. Right off [...]

    13. So, because this is a short story, I probably should not be so hard on it. I do love Emma Holly and read a lot of her books. I was especially intrigued with the whole frozen fairy and new "bad" girl at school story line. The preview I read made me want to read the book. However, a part of me struggles because of how fast they fall in loved I get a little leery thinking an 18 year old is having crazy sex with someone who does come across as feeling like an 18-20 year old guy, but in truth is over [...]

    14. My Review:This is a true fairytale set in the current world. December is a teen rebel. She's been kicked out of every boarding school her parents have sent her to. On her first night at her newest school, she sneaks out and discovers the cemetery. In the center of it is the extremely realistic and beautiful statue of Hans. It does things to herry smexy thingsd the story evolves from their involving curses, queens, and fairies. This book is pretty short but it's filled with smexy times. For me, i [...]

    16. Full review to be posted soon:Quick thoughts and mini review:This was a cute and sexy fairytalesque romance set in the Hidden World. I really liked the fairy tale elements with a young girl who fights against the restrictions set up by her family and the schools she is sent to. However the short length of the story while enjoyable and satisfactory, a lot of depth was lost and it felt too breezy with how they fell in love. But overall this was a gun story to while away an afternoon.

    17. The plot is a blend between the Greek myth of Pygmalion and Galatea and Hans Christian Anderson's "Snow Queen." Set in an all girls academy. The graveyard near the school has a reputation for strange occurrences involving a life-sized nude male statue. The story is steamy and is short enough to be read in one sitting.

    18. This is a real Fairy Tale. Hans has been turned into a statue by a curse and only true love can save him. December is a rich girl whose parents can't control her, and she is at a new boarding school, after getting thrown out of several. She is curious and smart and solves the mystery. After almost being killed, a happy ending ensues. Also Belle and Duvall show up. Yay

    19. This was another sweet love story with PLENTY of heat. I loved the heroine and the hero, and their chemistry is awesome. This one was shorter than some of the others of this world, which was a little disappointing. It was nice to have a cameo of characters from previous novels. Maybe there'll be a sequel to this one? (She wheedled).

    20. The plot blends the Greek myth of Pygmalion and Galatea with Hans Christian Anderson's "Snow Queen."The story takes place in upstate New York at a private girl's school, that happens to be a close neighbor to a cemetery.The story is steamy, and can be read in one sitting.

    21. I read this book out of sequence, so I'd advise anyone to visit Emma Holly's to find the correct order. This book was crazy good. From start to finish. Being able to visualize and picture the man of your dreamsin your dreams; Awesomeness!!! Read this book! Lol

    22. Too short. I enjoyed this tale of an enchanted fae and the girl who saves him from a curse. I have to confess, though, that as I get older I feel less comfortable with young heroines (18 in this case) and old heroes (several hundred years!).

    23. This was short and sweet. Emma did a sood job potraying the right bit of mystery and fantasy in Hans. He becomes every girls fantasy, no matter the age. I am impressed by the courage, the girl had in following her heart where ever to led her. #lovedit

    24. Emma Holly still delivers a very sensual read. But this one is a bit on the side of vanilla, even if we are back of the fantasy world she created. I just hope that this story is an introduction for a new series of hot adventures

    25. WOW! Great story! A quick read but wonderfully original and beautifully put together. I love Emma Holly's writing style. I'm off to buy more of her books!

    26. I am loving your Hidden Series! Just like the vampire series you continue the stories but the next story always adds so much more.
