Romancing Snow White: A Prince Charmaine Story by Karen Kiefer

Overview from Barnes and Noble:
When the dashing (or so he thinks) Prince Charmaine has a chance encounter with Snow White, he thinks all his prayers have been answered! The perfect, pale-skinned beauty is everything he could want in a woman, and he'll stop at nothing to make her his girlfriend!

But there is a problem. Seven problems, to be exact. The dwarves aren't going to make it easy on him!

Romancing Snow White is a romantic comedy novelette, approximately 9,000 words. While it is a stand-alone story, Prince Charmaine is a character in the full-length novel, Aurora Abroad.

My thoughts:
I was intrigued by the title and wanted to read another e-book so last week I read this one.  It wasn't quite what I was expecting.  The prince is nowhere near as likable as he is in the version I am used to and the dwarves all have some odd names, not the ones we are accustomed to either.  It was a quick read that had some comic elements.  It would be interesting to see what the prince is like in the full length book.  This e-book is currently free on both Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

  1. Sounds intriguing, and I'm a sucker for quirky retellings of old fairy tales so will give it a try. After all, you can't beat free! :)
