Although readers and filmgoers are strongly familiar with Disney’s sanitized child-centric fairy tales, they are quick to catch on to reworkings of classic tales into a contemporary context. The rise is such retellings seems to indicate that readers are hungry for a new narrative, one that hearkens back to the old yet moves the storyline forward to reflect conditions of the modern world. No mere escapist fantasies, the reimagined fairy tales of the late 20th and early 21st centuries reflect social, political and cultural truths. Sixteen essays consider fairy tales recreated through short stories, novels, poetry, and the graphic novel from both best-selling and lesser-known writers, applying a variety of perspectives, including postmodernism, psychoanalysis, Marxism, feminism, queer theory and gender studies. Along with the classic fairy tales, fiction from writers such as Neil Gaiman (Stardust) and Gregory Macquire (Wicked) is covered.

The global beauty business permeates our lives, influencing how we perceive ourselves and what it is to be beautiful. The brands and firms which have shaped this industry, such as Avon, Coty, Estée Lauder, L'Oréal, and Shiseido, have imagined beauty for us. This book provides the first authoritative history of the global beauty industry from its emergence in the nineteenth century to the present day, exploring how today's global giants grew. It shows how successive generations of entrepreneurs built brands which shaped perceptions of beauty, and the business organizations needed to market them. They democratized access to beauty products, once the privilege of elites, but they also defined the gender and ethnic borders of beauty, and its association with a handful of cities, notably Paris and later New York. The result was a homogenization of beauty ideals throughout the world. Today globalization is changing the beauty industry again; its impact can be seen in a range of competing strategies. Global brands have swept into China, Russia, and India, but at the same time, these brands are having to respond to a far greater diversity of cultures and lifestyles as new markets are opened up worldwide. In the twenty first century, beauty is again being re-imagined anew.

Book 2 in the epic romantic fantasy novella series, The Forgotten Kingdom. Caya and Morgan are running out of time to save their kingdoms from Arnost. Lacking the numbers necessary to face him head-on, they launch a two-pronged assault: a sabotage mission to disrupt his supply lines, and a whisper campaign designed to provoke unrest. As determined as Caya is to stop him, when faced with the reality of having to fight against her own people, she finds her resolve wavering. But witnessing the devastation her army has wrought proves her people aren’t blameless, and grappling with how to punish those guilty of atrocities while also protecting the innocent is almost more than she can bear. Morgan wonders if bringing her on the mission was a mistake. Uncertain of whether he can trust her to do what must be done, he is forced to reckon with the fact that however much he has come to identify with her, he cannot let her stand in the way of his efforts to protect his own people.

Book 3 in the epic romantic fantasy novella series, The Forgotten Kingdom. After the success of their initial missions, Caya and Morgan return to his kingdom to consider their next steps. Still wary of their supposed ally, Karima, they’re unsettled by the fact that their hopes of defeating Arnost appear to hinge on her. Their alliance provides her with an undeniable advantage, and neither Caya nor Morgan trust that she has Caya’s best interests at heart. Caya’s misgivings about Karima aren’t the only thing troubling her. A dawning awareness of how little she knows about her own father and his past plagues her. And while she’s determined to see her kingdom grapple with and atone for the wrongs it has committed, the thought of becoming the face of the rebellion leaves her conflicted. Will her people see her as their liberator or as a traitor? Meanwhile, Morgan is struggling with his envy and resentment. Having sacrificed so much, the necessity of fading into the background stings. Worse yet, his darkest, most secret fears have begun to take hold. What if defeating Arnost doesn’t break the spell entrapping his kingdom? What if everything he’s done has been in vain? As word of Karima’s and Caya’s alliance spreads, a new group of Rostands makes overtures toward the resistance, claiming they disapprove of the official Rostand policy of appeasement, and intimating that they too want to free Rostand from Arnost’s grip. Karima makes no secret of her desire to use the group to drive a wedge between Rostand’s queen and her regents, but can Morgan and Caya trust that if they do defeat Arnost, Karima won’t turn on them next?

Book 2 in the sexy GLAM rom-com series about a group of gloriously geeky ladies. Chantal Koffi is sure she isn’t good enough. After taking the dive years ago and publishing her webcomic online, she’s watched, disheartened, as the meager fruits of her labor trickle in. She knew making a living from her work was a pipe dream, but she pinned her hopes and dreams on it coming true. Since the art that holds true meaning for her isn’t paying her bills, she’s settled for channeling her abilities into an uninspiring graphic artist career. While she’s not above doing what’s necessary to make ends meet, the everyday proof that her art is only good at suckering hapless consumers into buying products they don’t need is soul-crushing. However, a chance meeting with a friend’s coworker reminds her that her art isn’t the only thing that matters to her. Marcus Tang is everything she’s ever wanted in a guy: sexy, sensitive, funny, intelligent, and an artist like her. Her attraction to him can’t be denied, and it isn’t long before she finds herself falling for him. But when a literary agent expresses interest in Marcus’s novel, Chantal is forced to contend with a stark reality. As thrilled for him as she is, she can’t ignore how painful it is to watch him find the success that continues to elude her. Then an unexpected disaster upends her delicate balancing act, and she must face the possibility that, while her love for Marcus is strong, she may not be strong enough to fight for it.

The first book in a new series of epic romantic fantasy novellas. With her dying breath, Morgan’s mother cast a desperate spell to save her son from Duke Arnost, successfully wiping Morgan’s and his kingdom’s existence from the world’s collective memory. Morgan has been paying the price ever since, as he struggles to free his people from an obscurity he has begun to despair of ever escaping. Princess Caya has spent the past ten years living in isolation. Cut off from her father and her throne, she has watched her realm fall deeply under Arnost’s sway. When her father dies, she faces the impossible task of returning to a court in which she has no allies and somehow finding a way to prove Arnost is a danger to the kingdom. Before she can return, Morgan abducts her and takes her to his forgotten lands in the hopes of persuading her to help him bring Arnost to justice. Yet how can he hope to convince someone who has no memory of him, nor of the friendship they once shared? But Caya does remember him—though that doesn’t mean she trusts him. An alliance may be just what she needs to expose Arnost and save both their kingdoms, but how can she trust that Morgan doesn’t intend to use her for his own ends?
