Catching up with D.C. Gambel

Catching up with D.C Gambel! Her latest story, Huntress and The Thorn Court in the Once Upon Another World: A Twisted Fairy Tale Box Set went live today.

Congrats on your newest release!

Tell us more about your story in this collection

My story is an urban fantasy twist on beauty and the beast. My MC Isabel is a hunter, who basically polices the preternatural community. Gideon is the alpha werewolf of the local pack who takes Isabel as his prisoner after she mistakenly kills a member of his pack. There’s more but I don’t want to give too much away. 

What did you enjoy most about writing it?

The sex lol no I enjoyed the twists and turns the story took that I didn’t even see coming.

What did you hate most?

That nothing came out like I expected. I had scenes already mapped out but NONE, not a single one, made it into the story. Some were written and then cut, which upset me so much to do because when I first thought up the idea, those scenes were what drove me to want to write it.

What can readers expect from this set?

Romance with a happily ever after or a happy for now as some stories, including yours truly’s, may have a sequel. (Coughing whispers) Huntress and the Splintered Court.

Last time we chatted, you said you were writing a story under a new pen name. How is the story coming along?

It’s coming. I get hung up so I put it away and work on Black Phoenix because I really need to finish that one. Right now they’re both on hold for a few weeks while I finish up a Christmas short story, Mistletoe and Demons, that will take place in The Edge of Forever universe after the conclusion of book four, The Prophecy. I don’t have more info to share on the Christmas short. Maybe next time.

What’s next for you?

Immediately is finishing my Christmas short and preparing the release of Huntress and the Splintered Court. Afterwards, I have so many ideas plaguing my mind, another twisted fairytale and a new series both are in the works.

Thank you D.C. Gambel for chatting with me! I will include her information down below. Check out her newest release, Once Upon Another World: A Twisted Fairy Tale Box Set today!

~Synopsis~

Not all fairy tales are as they appear.

Was it actually Red who hunted the wolf? What if the prince was the one in distress? Did the straw really get spun into gold? How well did those glass slippers truly fit?

Where princesses do their own rescuing, princes aren’t who they first appear to be, and beasts are friends, not foe—and maybe something more…

With stories spanning from true love’s kiss to reverse harem, skyscrapers to ancient castles, sweet romance to steamy nights, these alluring tales will satisfy readers of fantasy and romance alike.

Grab your copy of ONCE UPON ANOTHER WORLD and discover 22 twisted fairy tales with a happily ever after unlike anything you’ve ever read before.

~Synopsis~

What happens at the Thorn Court stays at the Thorn Court

Isabel is not your average princess. All she wants to do is keep peace among the preternatural community, but when she mistakenly kills an innocent werewolf, the cost of peace may be a steeper price than she’s willing to pay.

Gideon is a beast of a man. As the pack alpha he has to be. When an opportunity  practically lands in his lap, he’s driven to seize it, even if it means taking Isabel, a princess of The Order, as his prisoner.

When attraction blooms, Isabel has no choice but to resist the sexy alpha. If she doesn’t, her very future at the order could be in jeopardy

D.C. Gambel is a mother, army wife, and a hopeless romantic. Romance has always been her genre of choice whether it’s contemporary, historical, paranormal, or even pushing towards erotica in both reading and writing. When she first decided to try her hand at writing, romance was the obvious choice. Getting lost in a different world, living unimaginable lives is something she strives for even if it’s just a temporary enjoyment.


Seconds (Internet Famous Collection Book 6) by Cam Johns – My Review

Title: Seconds (Internet Famous Collection Book 6)

Author: Cam Johns

Release Date: September 30th 2020

Genre: Romance, Fairy Tale Retellings

Braxton Knight always had his mind set on becoming a celebrity chef. So much so that he forgot how to be a gentleman. His arrogance destroyed the confidence in many women, until he met the one woman who didn’t fawn over his every move. Phoenix Brighton. Soon, karma would come back to bite him in the ass that would devastate his future. Or so he thought. Turns out, it’s sometimes possible to find your second chance.

Cam Johns’s dark retelling of Rapunzel is a second chance romance that will leave you craving more from this hot celebrity chef and salivating for SECONDS.

Second by Cam Johns is fairy tale retelling of Rapunzel. 

I LOVED how different this retelling was! I love the dark vibe of it. It has a great balance of drama and sexiness. I really enjoy Miss Johns storytelling and the way these characters seem to incite such feelings and emotions while you’re reading. I found myself tearing up and then bawling at some of the scenes. Ah good times! I anxiously await what’s next from this author!! I give this 5 stars!
