"A modern day fairy tale that will capture your heart"
In Fairy Dreams by Brenna Lyons, Xanthe was a beautiful
fairy who decided to give up all her powers for Bran Blake,
a human she dearly loved. A curse was laid upon them that
all children born would be female and Bran Blake would have
no male heir. The Blake Estate continued to be passed on
from mother to daughter. When Katie Barrett passed, the
land was given to her niece Mollie Hardy.
Mollie Hardy is a headstrong business woman who worked
alongside her cousin until she could no longer stand
listening to his ill-advised business ventures. She needed
something different. She longed for the land her Nana used
to tell her about and she desired a simpler life.
When Mollie arrived at the estate, she was met by William
Cadal. As Katie's executor, he must mentor Mollie by
showing her how to run the estate. While settling in to
the estate, Mollie picked up a book of Fairy tales that she
remembers from her childhood. Seeing that the book gives
Mollie comfort, Cadal doesn't reveal that it is actually a

does he reveal his secrets to Mollie.
Since her early years Mollie has had dreams about a man
with blue eyes but whose features are unclear. She swears

with her feelings while at the same time, accepting that
she is descended from a Fairy. At the same time, Cadal
begins to see that, while Mollie shares some qualities with
his beloved Xanthe, she is also very much her own person.
She touches his heart like no one before.
Time is running out, though, as Cadal must soon return home
to the Fairy realm and assume his rightful position of
Fairy Master. Will Mollie embrace her destiny and join
