Grimm was never this much fun

This set of interconnected short stories is based on the fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, where a king offers a reward for anyone who can tell him how his daughters' shoes get thoroughly trashed every night without their apparent knowledge.

The king in this story has twelve daughters, so you can imagine the size of the daily bills from Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo, and you can also imagine his haste in getting to the bottom of the matter. To make it more puzzling, all the daughters were married, so the original fairy tale solution just didn't cut it anymore.

To make sure that only serious enquiries were entertained, the king pronounced a death penalty for failure, so after a while nobody was volunteering to solve the case of the un-soled shoes.

Since the men weren't up to the task, along came a "wizardess" with quite a few tricks in her bag and up her sleeves, and after convincing the king that she was the one, she set to work visiting each Princess and royal spouse at their respective homes.

Now these are erotic short stories, so you will realize that the key to the shoe thing lies in the intimate relationships between each Princess and her husband. The author skillfully uses each short story to focus on a different problem that can cause conjugal strife, and offers words of advice on how to solve them.

And now for the good stuff.....

Each story involves the "wizardess" prescribing cures for the problem at hand, including golden eels, magic rings, paintbrushes, masks, a special chastity belt that takes a lot more than a word to "open sesame", magic bubbles and even a fairy tale apple.

Hot and steamy, but never offensive or crude, these sizzling stories would make the Brothers Grimm squirm in their ledenhosen.
