Title: The Snow Queen’s Captive (Once Upon A Time Travel, #3)
Author: Jill Myles
Publication Date: September 29, 2014
Charlotte gets more than she bargained for when her fairy godmother, Muffin, sends her into a fairy tale for a second chance at life. But instead of being the heroine…Charlotte’s accidentally become the evil queen! To make matters worse, there’s a man captive in her basement. A very sexy, very angry man who also thinks Charlotte’s the bad guy.
Now she has to figure out how to save the day and get the guy. But will Kai be able to see the real Charlotte underneath it all? Can she thaw his anger and win his love before the ‘real’ heroine ices her? Will the Snow Queen get a happy ever after for once?
Let me start out by saying I love Myles’ Once Upon a Time-Travel series. Each one is great in it’s own way. The reason I liked this one so much is because it had the male being the captive and the female being in charge. I liked that change of pace. There is no damsel in distress yada yada.
Charlotte has to figure out her own path and rescue herself. Due to a mix-up by the great and hilarious Muffin’s Godmother in training, Charlotte has to deal with being the evil queen when she was supposed to be the heroine. To add to her dismay, the guy she is supposed to make fall in love with her is being held in her ice dungeon and wants her dead. Not a great meet-cute…
Kai is of course a very sexy alpha male and notices the differences between Charlotte and the original Snow Queen right away. He has to find it in himself to trust Charlotte, which of course is not easy. But man oh man is Kai a sexy character. The love Kai and Charlotte share is enduring and endearing. I loved watching their love form around the many obstacles they face. The sex was of course steamy- pun intended. Kai helps Charlotte gain confidence and Charlotte helps Kai realize the man he is supposed to be.
Kai and Charlotte are able to carve out a life for themselves in a place that neither of them saw them living in. It was a great mini read that I recommend to any Jill Myles fan! Her entire Once-Upon-A-Time-Travel series is smart, witty, funny, sexy, and completely entertaining! Her stories always manage to make me laugh out loud!
