Four Classic Tales Retold for the Modern Romantic

by Karen Green

A classic story can never be retold too many times, especially when the new version reimagines the most romantic elements of the original, but with a modern twist.

These four novels may follow the path of some of our very favorite classics, from fairy tale to Victorian saga, but they are sure to take readers on an entirely new journey of romance reimagined.

 Reawakened by His Christmas Kiss (Fairytale Brides) by Jessica Gilmore

Who says Sleeping Beauty isn’t a Christmas story? Elements of the classic tale told through a seasonal filter give this new love story, set in a snowbound castle, a dreamy blend of second-chance romance and happily-ever-after.

The Austen Playbook (London Celebrities) by Lucy Parker

In this modern retelling, Jane Austen is the inspiration as well as the catalyst for romance, as her Regency classics are rearranged and played out in front of the cameras. But life on stage soon imitates art as the protagonists find themselves in an Austen-inspired enemies-to-lovers romance of their own.

Christmas with You by Nora Roberts

We’re looking at a classic in a classic, as this previously published collection features two fan-favorite Nora Roberts Christmas stories. In Home for Christmas, a man returns from abroad hoping to find forgiveness, family and a second chance with the woman he left behind. And in Gabriel’s Angel, a Victorian favorite is retold as a modern-day Scrooge is called upon to help a woman in need, leading to an eye-opening redemption.
