Susie White and the Right Hand Man

Susie White and the Right Hand Man


M/F Erotic Romance/Fairy Tale Retelling


A wedding, an evil plan, a love story and a sacrifice are the order of the day in this modern retelling of Snow White and the Huntsman.

Susie White and her stepmother-to-be have never seen eye to eye, despite all of Susie’s best efforts to be friendly. Eager not to spoil her father’s happiness, Susie still agrees to be bridesmaid at their wedding. When the big day comes, she meets Louise’s right hand man, Scott. Susie had never believed in love at first sight until that moment. The pair hit it off, sharing a mutual dislike of Louise and her wicked ways. Their camaraderie quickly develops into something more, and they date in secret until it’s time for Susie to leave for University – and freedom. Unfortunately, Scott has an earth-shattering revelation, which means the two of them of them must work together to unravel Louise’s evil plan, before it’s too late.

I should have known my stepmother was up to something when she offered to help me move all my stuff to my University digs. It wasn’t like her to be civil, much less helpful, but I figured that she was happy I was moving hundreds of miles away, and therefore would do anything to make sure it happened as quickly as possible.

As my father’s only child, I’m the sole heir to White’s Bites, a massively profitable confectionary company based in Wiltshire, England. My stepmother had made no secret of the fact she resented that she wouldn’t get a stake in the business, should anything happen to my father. Of course, the reason for this was that my father knew the first thing the witch would do was put the business on the market to get her greedy little hands on the cash. I, on the other hand, loved White’s Bites and would continue to run it to the best of my ability.

We’d never seen eye to eye, my stepmother and I. However, it wasn’t the usual ‘child resents someone trying to replace their parent’ syndrome, it was her that resented me.

My mom had died of cancer when I was fifteen. My father and I were devastated, as you’d expect, but I’d always urged him to get on with his life. After all, it’s what mom would have wanted, and I certainly didn’t want my dad to be lonely when I got married and left home.

So, a couple of years later, when dad met Louise and they started dating, I was thrilled. He was happy, therefore so was I. Soon it became more serious and dad wanted me to meet her. I was excited, but nervous.

When the time came and Louise had walked into our house, I’d been in awe. Don’t get me wrong, my mom had been beautiful, but in a natural way, as if she didn’t realise, or care. But Louise clearly did. Her gorgeous hair was perfectly quaffed, and her attractive features were enhanced by expertly applied makeup. Her outfit looked like something from a fashion magazine. I managed to pull myself together before she saw me standing there, all slack-jawed and stupid-looking. Walking towards her, I’d held out a hand.

“Louise!” I’d said, beaming, “I’m so pleased to finally meet you. Dad’s told me so much about you.”

She’d smiled thinly and without any real emotion. “Charmed, I’m sure, Susan.” She’d shaken my hand gingerly, as though she was afraid she’d catch something. I’d half expected her to wipe her hand on her clothes afterwards.

“Oh please, call me Susie.” I’d said, ignoring her odd behaviour. I’d been eager to get on with the woman, knowing it would please my father. “Everyone does.”

Another tight-lipped smile. I’d tried hard to make conversation with her and make her feel comfortable in our home. But I never felt like I was succeeding. At first, I put it down to her being nervous or shy, but as weeks and months passed, I still never felt as though Louise warmed to me. I never bothered my father with my concerns. After all, as long as she liked him, what did it matter?

While Louise and my father were just dating, things weren’t too bad. They went to restaurants, the theatre, the cinema, and so on. I didn’t see her very often, and therefore didn’t have to put up with her frosty behaviour towards me.

Naturally, everything changed when dad told me he was going to ask Louise to marry him. He’d sat me down to break the news – fortunately – and I’d done my best to act delighted. Luckily, dad hadn’t noticed anything was amiss, and as he’d chatted about ceremonies, honeymoons and Louise moving in, a cold shiver had run up my back. This could not end well.

If you don’t have a lot of time, this is a fast read and one that you can read over and over again. Lucy also makes this a cliffhanger. Will this story continue?

“I throughly enjoyed this novel just as I do any other by Lucy Felthouse but Susie White and Right Man truly was a heart warming and intriging book, With just that little bit of magic in it to make it all that more incredible. From the very start that Susie and Scott are introduced at Susie’s wicked witch step-mother Louises wedding their attraction is obvious! With some very hot scenes and a happily ever after this novel truly has it all!” A Redheads Guilty Reads


“Lucy Felthouse has quickly become my go to for short reads, when I don’t have hours in the day I know that I can get my fix for a quickie with her every time. She gives you a fast paced story filled with everything you want and has never disappointed.” Day Dreaming


“I really liked this modern take on the Snow White story. The tale is narrated by Susie which gives it a very quick feel. You get a sense of how Susie’s treated and how Scott feels right from the get go. Louise is a total witch in every sense of the word… it’s very well done and has an explosive sex scenes that is not to be missed. I love how it was worked into the story. If you like fairy tale re-tellings then pick this up. It’s a quick read and totally worth it.” 4 out of 5, Getting Naughty Between the Stacks


“I thought this was a cute take on Snow White with a sexy twist at the end. It had all the elements of the beloved story, including the beautiful girl and the wicked step-mother. I loved the creative use of the “blood sacrifice” during the ritual. My only complaint was that I wish it had been longer.” Heather’s Musings


“This was a cute short story along the same lines as snow white only with an erotic twist. I loved how they broke the spell a willing sacrifice that ended in a great sex scene that had me wanting more. I recommend this book if you like fairy tales with an adult spin.” 4 out of 5, Judging the Book By Its Pages


“The main characters were well written and easily held my imagination and, even though this is quite short at 14 pages, I still felt like I got to know the characters and the personalities. I was pleased that the main parts of the classic story were still identifiable, even if it was slightly more risqué than Disney 😉 Overall this is an interesting take on a classic fairytale which I thoroughly enjoyed.” 4 out of 5, Scorching Book Reviews


“…I love Lucy’s writing style. There’s some wonderfully subtle tongue-in-cheek humour in there, and for a short story, you get a fully fleshed background and very rounded characters. How she managed to re-write Snow White to fit this story for the modern day is great, original, and, I thought, very clever. If you’re looking for something light and fun to read on your lunch break that won’t scare all your colleagues away from you (it’s not that explicit), this one’s a winner. Totally recommended 🙂 I’ll definitely be reading more of Lucy’s books!” 4 out of 5, Erotic Flashes


“I love a re-telling of a fairy tale! The story is an imperfect, yet likable, bedtime story with a modern fairy tale twist that is sure to please.” BookingIt


“I found this story cute with a twist for grown ups. Although the story is quick and to the point, I enjoyed Lucy Felthouse spicy version of Snow White and her interpretation of the witch.” Romance Novel Junkies


“A brilliant involving read all the way through, my only niggle was that the ending was too short; although I have to express it was still a good ending. Being more of a full novel reader I personally wanted to know more of what happened afterwards to both couples. But I still loved this brilliant idea and plot and its still a fantastic read; another great book for your “me time” moments.” Midnight Boudoir
