I read this one years ago, when it was first released! I remember really enjoying the book, so I jumped at the chance to read the rest of this set!
The Merchant's Daughter is a "Beauty and the Beast" tale in which the beautiful servant, Annabel, sees the true heart of Lord Ranulf, while he remains misunderstood to the rest of the village. I love when someone looks past public opinion and outside appearances and finds truth, and I enjoyed this story very much.
The Fairest Beauty stems from "Snow White," and I found it fun and entertaining. I enjoyed the variations from it's parent story, especially the Cottage of the Seven.
The Captive Maiden is the "Cinderella" story of the set. This is Cinderella with a little extra suspense and intrigue in the mix, and again, it was very fun to read.
