For the ten generations since the evil first came to Woodcutter's Grim, the Guardians have sworn an oath to protect the town from the childhood horrors that lurk in the black woods. Without them, the town would be defenceless...and the terrors would escape to the world at large.

A four-book miniseries within the Woodcutter's Grim Series, dealing with the curse on the Shaussegeny family.

Moonlight Becomes You (Book 4) {romantic paranormal}
Very loosely based on "The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse". When her child becomes deathly ill and none of the doctors and specialists can help him, Heather Rowe rushes to Woodcutter's Grim, hoping the boy's father can explain what's happening. But Lance Shaussegeny both intrigues and terrifies Heather as much as what he's told her of his hometown does. She soon learns that nothing in Woodcutter's Grim--including Lance--is what it seems.

Bewitched (Book 5) {romantic paranormal}
Very loosely based on "The Little Mermaid". Glynnis Shaussegeny becomes bewitched by the mystery man who appears out of nowhere on the abandoned property across the lake from her family's estate. But does Aric Sayer have even more dark secrets than she does?

One Night of Eternity (Book 6) {romantic paranormal}
Very loosely based on "The House That Jack Built". The curse pronounced on the Shaussegeny clan for all time was very clear: "Because the Shaussegeny name has long been synonymous with faithlessness, even unto your own chosen mates, only one chosen mate will be allotted to each of your kin henceforth. These chosen mates must also fall under the family curse, but these pairs will know true peace when they become one. Herein lays your salvation--and your damnation. Only if each of your clan remains faithful to their chosen mates in word and deed for all of their days will they have blissful contentment. Apart, mates shall be restless and forever unsettled, gripped by a sadness and despair unlike any other. A terrible fate will come upon the one who breaks the mate covenant."

Gavin Shaussegeny has broken the covenant with his wife, Marnie, by cheating on her, and the betrayal carries a harsh penalty and punishment. Although Gavin regrets his faithlessness and loves his wife more than anyone or anything else, the house that he's built for himself is rapidly beginning to tumble down around him. There is only one chance for salvation for him now: Only his mate's undeserved forgiveness will free him from his punishment to re-live his betrayal over and over for all time.

Beauty is the Beast (Book 7) {romantic paranormal}
Very loosely based on "Beauty and the Beast". The Shaussegeny family curse came with one final pronouncement: "And now there is but one manner in which this curse can be broken and obliterated entirely: That beauty falls in love with the beast and vice versa, that evil loves good and good loves evil. If this should happen, your family shall be released from each aspect of my curse and your alliance with evil shall be ended."

Ransom Shaussegeny attempts to cure the family of the curse they live under. Instead, he becomes a werewolf trapped in his beast form and isolates himself inside the family fortress. When he meets Tess Moore, a beautiful enchantress, and falls under her spell, Ransom no longer knows who or what is real--or whether the evil in Woodcutter's Grim is about to have the last laugh by dooming him, the woman he loves, and his family for all time...

5 Stars and Top Pick! “WOODCUTTER’S GRIM SERIES is collection of short stories about the inhabitants of Woodcutter’s Grim who are anything but ordinary. These hauntingly romantic tales will give you the chills and have you swooning within the same sentence. In Volume II, the author focuses on the Shaussegeny family, who has a terrible curse placed upon them. Moonlight Becomes You, Book 4 is about Heather Rowe's son is sick, and Lance may be the only one who can cure him. Bewitched, Book 5, is not your ordinary fairytale. This story is an amazingly dark fairy tale laced with some romance, making for a very intriguing story. The descriptive imagery helped me to imagine just what this world must be like for these characters and grow to love them for it. The characters are very well written, easily luring readers into this fantastic new world full of secrets, curses, and love. Aric was a mysterious character who I enjoyed figuring out along with Glynnis. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good dark fairytale. One Night of Eternity, Book 6, was by far one of the most emotion-packed stories in this series yet. Much of it is bittersweet and the mixed emotions and fears of the characters practically ooze off the page. It was very easy to become engrossed in Gavin and Marnie's story, and I couldn't help but feel empathy and even joy at times. Marnie and Gavin both have scars because of their actions, but throughout the book they get a chance to finally accept them and possibly have a happy ending of their own. The scenery and descriptive language in the story helps set the mood for this haunting tale. The imagery used was beautiful and creative. I enjoyed every minute of this story and couldn't put it down. I recommend this story to those who love a romance with some relatable characters and tons of emotion-packed scenes. Beauty is the Beast comes with a new twist. This one is definitely one of the best. I love the dark romance and the twists and turns that are added into this story. Ransom brings some real depth to the beast character which I love because not all retellings of this story have very much depth to the beast's character. This story is so much more than a retelling, though as it brings in a magic of its own and drew me in, keeping me glued to the pages for hours. I highly recommend Beauty is the Beast not only to fans of fairytales, but anyone who loves a good paranormal romance.” ~The Romance Reviews
“Moonlight Becomes You: Enthralling. Bewitched: Exciting. One Night of Eternity: Creative and poignant. Beauty is the Beast: Heartwarming. The second Woodcutter’s Grim anthology contains four excellent paranormal romances in which members of the cursed Shaussegeny family meet their beloved mates. Each tale is loosely based on a fairy tale as Karen Wiesner provides fresh, adult renditions in a fabulous collection.” ~Harriet Klausner for Alternative Worlds http://www.alternative-worlds.com/2012/08/11/woodcutters-grim-series-volume-ii-karen-wiesner/
“Bewitched: The premise underlying the series, of a town haunted by evil, the Guardians set to protect the town, and a curse placed upon a family that made them werewolves proves very intriguing. This story begins with a lyrical fairy tale/folklore narrative which engages the reader immediately. The two likeable leads in the tale ensure that readers wish to discover how their situation gets resolved and will leave them curious about other members of the family explored in subsequent stories. One Night of Eternity: The author earns extra points for an inventive punishment visited upon one of the two characters. Beauty is the Beast: Each story in Woodcutter’s Grim Series, Volume II contains some aspect that adds to the enjoyment. In the case of Beauty Is the Beast, an interesting and unexpected twist supplies that extra appeal. This last installment of the miniseries does provide a resolution for some of the ongoing storylines, though a door opens for further possibilities within the world of Woodcutter’s Grim in THE DEEP, expected in October 2013.” ~Bitten By Books http://bittenbybooks.com
