The lonely prince wants nothing more than someone to love and live with forever. The frog, however, is not what the prince had in mind. Then again, this is no ordinary frog, and this, too, is no ordinary tale. Though a promise is a promise, and so the prince must find out why the two seem destined for one another, despite his misgivings.

True love’s kiss can come in unexpected places. Prince Harold is lonely and horny, a bad combination. He’s tired of having any man he wants for sex but none who will actually date him. As the second son of the king, everyone wants a chance at marrying his older brother and not him. After losing his golden cock-ring in the water, a considerate frog offers to retrieve the ring if Harold will love the frog and let the frog live with him. Harold hastily agrees but when he tries to renege on his promise, the frog is stubborn.

The Prince and the Frog is recently re-released very short story that is also available in the Torqued Tales M/M Anthology from 2007. Fans of reworked fairy tales may enjoy this take on a horny prince and his true love in the guise of a frog. It’s only a few pages and the writing has a lot of fun with Harold’s perpetual masturbation. For example the frog sings the same chorus every night to get the prince to open the door and let him in:

“Open the door, my prince so fair. Open the door, your true love is here. Mind the promise that you have made. Mind what you said as your stiffness did fade.”

The writing is fun and entertaining. It’s not a serious re-telling but instead focuses on the sex aspect of the fairy tale and Harold as a prince that can’t stop jacking off. Of course eventually the prince understands that the frog could be his true love but it’s an amusing short ride to that end. The concept is fun and heavily erotic but with a lot of wit and charm. It’s likely to be a good fit for readers that prefer a lot of erotica with a dash of romance and enjoy fairy tale retellings.
