"A whimsical story that will make you smile"
This whimsical tale shows just was a conflict it
can be between those who have and those who want. This was
the case with Rose Thayer and Brandon Goodfellow. Rose
received every bit of her mother's fae magic when she was
born where as Brand's father Robin gave up his fae
birthright to be with the mortal he fell in love with.
Brand has had a hard time with this ever since he and Rose
found out when they were thirteen years old.
Now Brand is a master magician with his forte being
illusion. Rose is a journalist whose forte is exposing
charlatans and magician's tricks. She's exposed many
magicians and now according to her editor it's time to go
Rose reluctantly agrees but has much trepidation
about this story. She and Brand have known each other
since birth and were close until they lost touch when Brand
pulled back from Rose when she came into her magical
powers. Brand still harbors very bitter feelings about the
whole situation and especially since Rose wants to expose
him to the world.
Brand decides to make a deal with Rose. He
her that she can travel with his show if she doesn't do any
magic the whole time. If she reneges then she won't do the
story. Rose reluctantly agrees but isn't sure she can do
this since she's become so accustomed to her magic.
What Brand and Rose don't count on is their puppy
love of their youth only growing stronger. Not only that
but Ewan shows up from the fae world to take Rose back to
Queen Tatiana and when wishes suddenly start coming true,
Ewan tells Rose that her magic is leaking because she's not
using it. This causes all sorts of hilarious and difficult
I've thoroughly enjoyed every one of Karen Fox's
faery romances. They all have been one sitting reads for
me. This book is absolutely enchanting especially as it
brings Rose and Brand together. I have my fingers crossed
that we will see a story about Sequoia and Ewan in the very
near future. Thank you, Karen Fox, for hours of reading
enjoyment for me!
