The Perfect Collection for Twisted readers to devour!!

Alright, so, this anthology is not your average love story. Judging by the cover, you should be well aware. This book gives you a piece of twistedness through out history. A different take on famous or infamous characters that spin a different tale on romance. Each author propels the need to keep reading, a different way of thinking in every mini-story, a different level of consuming darkness. Not every story has a HEA. But, I'll be dammned,

Wow, this collection completely blew my mind away! Not only it combined my two favorite genres - historical romance and dark fiction - but each pair in each story was written absolutely incredibly! Starting with Ancient Greece, we travel through time together with Persephone and Hades, Cleopatra and Mark Anthony, Romeo and Juliette (and a third lover, who, I bet, you would never see play such an important part in their story), Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, Napoleon and Josephine, and many more.

I had the huge honour of reading two of these stories in the early stages. Here are my thoughts. I will add reviews of the other stories at a later date.

Tower by Ashleigh Giannoccaro

Wow this was good. I loved the darkness of it, really interesting, sort of makes the public story seem all the more put on. Starts off very tongue in cheek and then goes all medieval on us. Its like a parallel universe where its not a happy loving thing. Some parts had me laughing which broke some of the tension qui

Absolutely love this anthology.
Not only does all money raised go to charity but the stories are amazing too!
I wasn't sure if I would like this when it said history but I was blown away at the stories and the twists the authors had put on them, I couldn't put them down. You don't need to be a history buff to know who they are talking about and enjoy the stories.
If the front cover doesn't tell you this is dark book. I devoured it.

I don't usually read anthologies but this one looked interesting and has some of my favorite authors in it so I gave it a try and so glad that I did. Each short story in this book is well written and make you think about what you thought you knew or what you were once told to be true. I loved reading the alternate endings or alternate causes to the ending of some of histories most famous couples. A must read!

Infamous Hearts is a fantastically written book by a talented group of authors. Each author contributes their own flare to the story each tells. This is a book that won't be easy to put down due to the intensity each story offers. It'll have you glued to the egde of your seat until you've devoured every page. I highly recommend purchasing and reading Infamous Hearts!

What an amazing compilation from some amazing authors!! Reading how they each took a turn grabbing a point in history and twisting it to how they thought it should have ended, or what could have been a different ending was amazing! If you know a little about even one of these couples, prepare to have your mind blown! A bit of a "what if" to make you want to know more about each of the couples. Definitely a must read!!!

A Must Read💕

13 of the most brilliant authors came together to give us a collection of the infamous couples in history.
Each author brings their unique writing styles to take us back to bygone eras to see into the lives of these couples.Some you will know right off and some will make you go straight to google.

Is it fact or fiction?
Honestly, I really didn't care. It was an amazing read and for a good cause.

These stories are delightfully twisted and I can’t get enough them. Each author brings their individual characters to life in their tales, I enjoyed that they’re all standalone’s in this anthology so you’re able to read them in any order you choose. Be told now that there are triggers in each story. These are not for the fault of heart.
We start off with “In the Arms of Hades” by Dani Rene, Hades and Persephone are from the opposite ends of the earth yet the path they choose changes everything.

This is a fantastic collaboration of 13 fantastic and creative authors. I was lucky enough to beta read two of these stories.
Tower by Ashleigh Giannoccaro

I really loved the 'dark' take in which Ashleigh took on for this book. I found my self laughing at times and cringing the next. She certainly gave me food for though that the grass is not always greener on the other side and that appearances are not always as they seem.

I love all the scenes in each story and I love the writing. This book is all it was meant to be. Exciting with a twist.

What a great read!

This book contains 13 short, twisted tales of infamous couples in history. Each of the 13 authors have put there own spin on each tale, and what tales they tell.
Some of these authors are new to me, and will be checking out there other books. While others, I read anything they write so I was not disappointed.

13 amazing stories by 13 talented authors. I was familiar with a few of the authors, but not all, but now there are definitely authors that I want to read more of. Each author has a different style of writing and their own twist on the couple. Some are gripping, graphic and gory, while other are more sensual.

it left me wanting for more.

This book was different in a good way. A fantastic twist on infamous couples.
I didn't want the stories to end.
All were unique and pushed the stories to a place that I loved.
Well done ladies.

This is my first anthology I have read all the way through and my favorite I must say. There are two stories in it that I skipped beacuse I lost interest fast. A side from that it's dark and amazing!

I loved these 13 dark and twisted short stories about infamous couples. Every author did a fabulous job and made me question my own sanity for enjoying their stories so much.

There were some really great stories and some not so much. One of the really needed a edit run through it was a good story but hard to read for this reason. It was down right confusing.
