A House in the Woods: A Fairytale Retelling by C.T. Worth
Three teenagers ensnared by a ruthless killer. Can they learn to work together before it’s too late?

For years, Adele has lived under the thumb of an evil crone. When she stumbles across hidden riches, she can’t believe her good fortune. Freedom is finally within her grasp. Well, that’s what she thought before she woke up in a cage in the middle of the forest. Now, with the crone desperate to know where the treasure is hidden, Adele’s only chance to survive is to stay silent and trust no one. That shouldn’t be too hard. After all, she’s been doing it her entire life.

Hansel Fisher swore he’d always keep his sister safe. After being taken in by a mysterious, elderly woman, he believes he’s finally found a home where his sister will be cared for. But when Hans is asked to see to the needs of the beautiful but troubled Adele, doubt takes hold. As he spends more time with her, he grows increasingly suspicious of his hostess and her motives. If she is truly evil, can he protect his sister? And if he can, is keeping Gretel safe still enough?

Just because Adele must rely on Hans while she’s imprisoned, doesn’t mean she should trust him. Unfortunately, it’s hard to remember that humans are selfish when she is constantly being exposed to Hans’ charm and efforts to shield his sister. When Adele discovers he’s in danger, she listens to her heart—which is either the smartest or the dumbest thing she’s ever done.

This reimagining of the classic fairy tale Hansel and Gretel is the third book in the Once Upon a Romance series but can be read as a stand-alone novella.
