Finishing her master’s degree in architectural restoration, Lara meets the handsome former Navy SEAL on campus when he shows up as a part time professor. She is twenty-four years old and beautiful, but terrified of the strong feelings Lieutenant Ben Keegan stirs in her. Several other potential suitors attempt to capture her time, but it’s Ben that she respects and admires. But, there’s one big problem: he is legally married and has a young son.

One part Sex and the City, two parts Desperate Housewives, and three parts Brothers Grimm, DESPERATELY EVER AFTER picks up where the original tales left off—and reimagines them a la Gregory Maguire’s Wicked.

“One part Sex and the City. Two parts Desperate Housewives. Three parts Brothers Grimm.
The Desperately Ever After series takes a whimsical look at our most beloved fairy tale princesses several years after true love’s kiss. With laughter, wine, and a new take on old-fashioned chivalry, these friends see each other through life’s trials–one secret at a time. Set in a fictional realm based on New York City, the books sprinkle fiction with elements of fantasy and encourage readers to rethink everything they know about happy endings.
After watching her fairy tale go up in flames, Belle is finally starting over. With a baby on the way, a business to run, and a new love interest she just can’t shake, things are finally looking up. That is, until she learns her independence might revive broken curses the world over. Could “happily ever after” really mean staying with her unfaithful husband? Or will Belle and her steadfast friends find another way?
Meanwhile, Dawn still longs for the life she had three centuries earlier–before her sleeping curse ended in two kids, an unfamiliar era, and a husband she barely knows. So when the childhood sweetheart she believed to be dead resurfaces, she must suddenly choose between the past she once wanted and the present she never knew she did.
As both women struggle between love and obligation–between what’s right for the world and what’s right for the heart–they fail to see a great danger brewing in the capital. One that could change everything forever.
With the wit of authors like Jennifer Weiner, the vision of ABC’s Once Upon a Time and the imagination of Gregory Maguire’s Wicked, Damsels in Distress picks up where the original tales left off–and twists them every “witch” way.”
