4.0 out of 5 stars And they all lived happily ever after?
...... Well, no, not really, if truth be told.

With this new collection of short stories, Nancy Madore reinterprets eight popular nursery rhymes in her distinctive style, each offering a witty, clever and titillating variation on old favorites like Humpty Dumpty and Georgie Porgie.

Written with the modern woman in mind, the collection includes...

1.0 out of 5 stars Broken enchantment
The only enchantment here is that it's more likely to help with curing insomnia than anything else. Perhaps might also be useful for propping up unstable end tables.

This review is from: Enchanted Again (Paperback)
...... Well, no, not really, if truth be told.

With this new collection of short stories, Nancy Madore reinterprets eight popular nursery rhymes in her distinctive style, each offering a witty, clever and titillating variation on old favorites like Humpty Dumpty and Georgie Porgie.

Written with the modern woman in mind, the collection includes stories about women who have loved, women who have lost, and women who perhaps would have been better off if they hadn't bothered in the first place. You'll need to read it to determine which is which.

Starting off with "Birds of a Feather", Madore tells the tale of a bored housewife looking for a different sort of stimulation, and things take a very strange turn when she finds what she thinks she's looking for.

Next comes "Curly Locks", which goes in a completely unexpected direction, followed by "Desperate Dan", "Georgie Porgie", "Hot Cross Buns", "Little Miss Muffet", "Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater" and "Humpty Dumpty".

They're all page turners, but the ones I'd pick as stand-outs would be "Desperate Dan", "Little Miss Muffet" and "Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater".

Although each story has its fair share of the juicy stuff, this collection is much more than just erotica, with its well developed and unique characters and situations, and lots of sneaky twists thrown in for good measure.

Recommended for fans of intelligent, thought-provoking short stories and steamy literary encounters.
