He lived through ages with the curse of attracting women...who end up dead...

One upon a time, he was the most handsome of princes, destined for great things. But now he's a lonely legend, hobbled by a dark history. With too many dead in his wake, Bluebeard escapes the only way he knows how—through the evil spell of alcohol. But it's a far different kind of spell that's been ruining his life for centuries.

How will she survive this killer Prince Charming?

Jodi Walters is a fixer, someone who can put magic back in order. She's the best in Hollywood at her game. But Blue has a problem she's never encountered before—and worse, she finds herself perilously attractived to him.

If there’s one word that sums up this book, it’s originality. All too often paranormal stories start sounding the same, but this one took a different approach to a make believe world.

I enjoyed getting to know Jodi and Blue. The secondary characters were fun too, especially Tank who I hope gets her own story one of these days.

Charming Blue is part legend, part fairy tale which made me reminisce about my childhood and the fairy tales I enjoyed so much like Snow White and Sleeping Beauty.

Ms. Grayson did a wonderful job of setting up this mythical world that on the one hand seems like our modern society but on the other it’s magical enough to immerse yourself totally into the world of make believe.

It’s a fun, unique read, and while the book might not be for every fan of paranormals, if you’re looking for something slightly different, I’d say give this one a read.
