Synopsis:
Trapped in a cursed sleep, the only experiences Princess Eglantine has are the ones in her dreams. There she meets Prince Henry of Fallund, a neighboring kingdom on the brink of war.

Meanwhile, Henry's brother Duncan discovers a vicious beast imprisoned for murder. Captivated by her, he works to free her from both the prison bars she's locked behind and the ones surrounding her heart and mind. Sleeping Beauty and the Beast reinvents and seamlessly intertwines the classic fairy tales Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and the Beast.

Praise for Sleeping Beauty and the Beast:

"By far her best fairy tale overhaul yet! The premise of the story is intriguing , and the characters engaging. Melissa's writing style in Sleeping Beauty and the Beast is phenomenal. Eglantine's perspective pulls us right into her world and into the story. Must read!"
--Misty Pulsipher, author of Pride's Prejudice and Persuaded

"This is my first read by Melissa Lemon and I'm now a hooked fan! Thank goodness she already has two other books out that I can read! I love the idea of taking fairy tales and twisting them up. But, she takes it one step further by intertwining two of them together. The author mind reels at the intricacies, but the reader mind says: THAT ROCKS!"
--Lisa Swinton, author of Fallen Angel





Synopsis:
Katiyana Whyte's world is only as big as the apple orchard she was raised on. She can never leave the home where she grew up under the careful eye of her great uncle Barney. But when life at the orchard suddenly becomes dangerous and her childhood friend Jeremy begs her to flee, Kat finds refuge in the Fluttering Forest with seven dwarves.

Meanwhile, the queen of Mayhem, an evil sorceress, learns through her magic mirror that the daughter she believed to be dead still lives. Enraged, she sends a servant to kill Kat, the princess of Mayhem, but Kat finds protection in a spell that causes snowstorms whenever she is in danger, giving her the nickname Snow Whyte.

In the wonderfully imagined Snow Whyte and the Queen of Mayhem, nobody is quite who they seem. Full of romance and adventure, this is the magical tale of Snow White as you've never read it!

Praise for Snow Whyte and the Queen of Mayhem:

"Time and again Melissa Lemon injects expected story elements with the unexpected, bringing them to life in unconventional ways. Whether its the introductions of strange royal traditions practiced by Mayhem's neighbor, the kingdom of Mischief, a prince who isn't as princely as he should be, or apples that appear in orchards rather than in the gnarly old hands of a hag, Snow Whyte and the Queen of Mayhem is quite an original telling and a fresh but still recognizable fairy tale to curl up with on a cold winter night." --Serena, USA Today Happily Ever After Blog

Praise for Cinder and Ella:

"Cinder and Ella is a gorgeous fairytale, written in a beautiful prose that winds its way through the story, making you feel as if you're sitting by the fire hearing the tale of the ages."
--Rhiana Jones, A Frugal Life Blog

"As refreshing as it is beautiful--our beloved fairytale gets a supernatural twist."
--Deven Ashley, Author of Ordained, The Immortal Archives

Praise for Blue Sky:

"This story is thoughtful and redemptive. The romance is sweet. The characters are real. The emotions are raw. Thank you Melissa Lemon for not telling me how to feel and just showing me how tender love can be." --R. K. Grow

"This book has rendered me speechless. Such an adorable, lovable story! It truly took me by surprise and right from the beginning I was caught up in the book, unable to put it down, reading late at night not caring that I wasn't getting sleep. And every moment spent away from the book was spent thinking about the story. The book is beautifully written and pulls you right in. Each character is unique, believable, and easy to connect with. This beautiful story teaches that mistakes are made, and yet, you can be forgiven. You can forgive. And no matter how bad things get, there is always hope." --Konstanz Silverbow
