#IShipIt Fairytale Style: Danielle & Prince Henry

 

So, who loves fairytales? *waves hand in the air like a maniac* I’m just a bit of a fan. The 1990s Cinderella adaptation Ever After has always been one of my faves. Let’s stroll down memory lane…

 

I adored our feisty “Cinderella,” Danielle…

Who was not only strong-willed but also smart and loved books. Perfect heroine. 😉

And when she meets the handsome Prince Henry, he recognizes not just her beauty but her intelligence. Definitely my kind of hero.

And man, that prince can give some swoony kisses…

I also loved the humor of this romance, like when Danielle has to carry the prince on her back in order to escape bandit gypsies in the woods…

After that, we get more swoony kisses. No complaints here…

So everything is perfect until the wicked stepmother steps in…

Of course, the hateful woman tries to prevent Danielle from going to the ball, but with the help of her fairy godmother Leonardo da Vinci (I swear, I love this movie), she makes it …

But the evil stepmother and stepsister do their best to tear Danielle and Prince Henry apart. Luckily, they fail. The crowning moment (pun intended) is when the wicked stepsister sees Danielle walk in as princess…

The stepsister is stunned, of course…

And then Prince Henry puts her in her place…

Gah! I love this movie so hard! Now I want to rewatch ASAP. What other swoony fairytale or story retellings do you love on film?

One more swoony kiss clip for the road! 😉

To the north of the Varis empire, a mysterious faction spreads propaganda against the vampire monarchy. Friedrich Volya, the Duke of Winter Hill, seeks to discover who they are before his uncle finds them first. King Dominik will punish the traitors with brutal force.

Local schoolteacher, the raven-haired Brennalyn, is on her own mission—to spy on the duke and discover what she can for the Black Lily. She longs to help the commonwealth and bring justice to the many orphans left behind from the ravages of the blood madness, like the children she lovingly keeps in her care. What she doesn’t plan for is the heart-pounding attraction she feels for the duke, enemy to the Black Lily.

But when Brennalyn’s secret puts her life and the life of her children in danger, Friedrich steps in as her protector, she finds out there’s more to the duke than she thought.

Each book in the Vampire Blood series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Series Order:
Book #1 The Black Lily

Juliette calls lush, moss-laden Louisiana home where the landscape curls into her imagination, creating mystical settings for her stories. She has a B.A. in creative writing from Louisiana State University, a M.Ed. in gifted education, and was privileged to study under the award-winning author Ernest J. Gaines in grad school. Her love of mythology, legends, and art serve as constant inspiration for her works. From the moment she read JANE EYRE as a teenager, she fell in love with the Gothic romance–brooding characters, mysterious settings, persevering heroines, and dark, sexy heroes. Even then, she not only longed to read more novels set in Gothic worlds, she wanted to create her own.
