*First time reading author
**KU read

The Curse Behind the Mask is unlike anything I have read in a while. It took me a minute to figure out what the heck was even going on. Elijah and Megan are doomed right from the start. The Evil Queen makes sure of that. Elijah has no chance of making it up to Megan unless Megan can become strong enough to fight off the curse.

I have to say even though this book does start off a little strange, I did enjoy the rest of the book. A great addition to the collectio

Prepare yourself for a wild ride! This is not your average Prince Charming story. It’s so much more! Prince Elijah is holding a Ball, and not your everyday kind. This one is full of evil deeds and he is at the center of it preparing to chose a woman he will ruin. Until he sees Megan and all bets are off. There is something about her that makes him feel different, but why? He knows he must keep her away from the evil Queen as she calls the shots. Can Elijah keep Megan from harm? I’m really enjoyi ...more

This story was absolutely fabulous! Prince Elijah is holding a ball and not your average ball, it’s an erotic ball, one where you can fulfill your every sexual desire and Elijah is looking for the one woman he can ruin. Megan goes to the ball, sent there by her father and not having any idea of what happens there. When Elijah sees Megan enter, he knows this is the woman he will choose and he must have her. When they meet and speak he knows somehow she’s different and must keep her away from the ...more

Wow this book was gifted to me.. This was a very intense hot read that takes you on many twists and turns throughout the darkest times. I was very excited to read this book and I dug right in and didn’t put down tell I was finished. My heart was betting fast and hard and I was needing more of the story that had me feeling like I was right there in the story. This is a very good hot steamy read and can’t wait to read more from this collection.

I am loving this series! Each book brings a unique retelling of well known heroes. I was excited to see that in this novella, we meet the Evil Queen that is responsible for the havoc she caused with opening the box.

Elijah, the Prince, and Megan meet at an Erotic Ball where ones deepest fantasy comes to fruition. Only Megan doesn’t know what goes on behind these castle walls.

The queen’s evil spells reign supreme over Elijah, causing him to hurt the one who can break him of his life long spell.

I've read a few of Holly's books and this genre is completely different to her other books.

This book is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone. This one is about Prince Elijah, who hosts an erotic ball to claim one person as his own so he can ruin them. But when he meets his latest conquest, little did he know he would start to develop feelings and do everything he can to protect her from the other guests and the evil queen.

This book is definitely not hearts and flowers and could ha

I This book is so different from the writers usual style and it took a lot of reading to get into it, once I did I enjoyed it but it isn't one that I would read again like some of her other books. It is a bit dark in places but very well written, I thought he was going to prince charming and at the end he was ...more

This book is not your normal, sweet and romantic fairytale with a loving prince charming. It's way more darker and twisted.  Simply love this new version of fairy tales, this new kind of ball. Love the portrayal of Elijah and the innocent Megan.

I did not finish. The writing was not great. The plot did not flow. Instead of a plot it just seemed like one awful scene after another. I love dark romance. This was dark but there was no romance, no chemistry between main characters.

The curse

Great read for a lazy afternoon. The characters are compatible. The Queen is horrendous. It was a nice love conquers all tale.

Dark read

This is a dark, twisted deviant tale which is so well written you don't want to put it down. Short gritty read.

This is not a book I would normally read but I’m really glad I did. It had a bit of Fairytale feel to it. The nasty Queen, the prince who was cursed and the poor girl. The sex scenes were off the charts. If you love BDSM you’ll definitely love this book.
It was a short afternoon read and should be read alone with no children about 😃
