One of the best things about being part of an anthology, especially one with a specific lens and theme, is reading the work of the other authors who contributed stories as well, and seeing the movement of the collection as a whole.
This anthology offers a wide range of unique reinterpretations of fairy tales for adults, resulting in intense, symbolic, smart, and darkly erotic stories. The stories in this collection are expansive and varied. Some keep within the original fairy tale world, others twist and turn within the fairy tale, finding new threads, while still others utilize contemporary characters and settings in the framework of the original tale.
All of the stories in this collection are unique, erotic, beautifully written, and skillfully woven. It’s an honor to have my story “Wolf Moon” included in this stunning anthology.

In Lustfully Ever After, classic fairy tales are reimagined for an adult audience with twists (and kinks) to keep readers entertained. In Michelle Augello-Page’s romantically charged BDSM tale “Wolf Moon,” Little Red Riding Hood is the big bad wolf, while Kristina Lloyd rewrites “The Twelve Dancing Princesses” as a scorching hot MFM threesome in “The Shoes That Were Danced to Pieces.” Shanna Germain’s “Mirror Mirror” shows the sensual Sapphic side of Snow White’s stepmother and Andrea Dale pens a contemporary version of “The Steadfast Tin Soldier” in the poignantly erotic “Steadfast.”
