Danielle Monsch “writes stories full of fantastical goodness and plenty of action, but always with lots of romance (and a bit of woo-hoo!) mixed in. Vampires and Werewolves and Demons and Angels, Sword & Sorcery, Fairy Tales, Updated Mythologies and the like - if it's out of the ordinary, it's fair game for her stories.” Ms. Monsch hosts the Internet Radio Show Romantically Speaking. She is also a mom to two amazing little girls and wife to her favorite guy in the world.
“Tiernan is one of a kind. Beyond the divine dimples, killer blue eyes, and hard muscled body, Tiernan is also the only Fairy Godfather.”
“Amongst Fairy Godmothers, Reina is the best. Organized, efficient, logical.”
Tiernan is about to lose his Godfather status because of his lack of producing HEAs (Happily Ever Afters). Reina is sent with him on his mission to run interference in case the Fairy King tries to sabotage his mission to get Cinderella her HEA. Little do either of them know that Sara, head of all Fairy Godmothers, has a mission of her own to accomplish.
“This surely ain't your momma's version of Cinderella.” I suppose when I read this line in the description I should have suspected, but I didn’t. I thought this sounded like a unique spin on the fairy tale Cinderella, and it was. But it was so much more than that. This novella was very entertaining and quite steamy. It also put a new twist into the Fairy Godmother myth that I really enjoyed.
Reina had her heart broken years ago by a man who wielded his charms very much like Tienan does and as a result she erected walls around her heart. Since Reina is his superior, she had to deal with him. Tienan was very popular with all the Fairy Godmothers as you can imagine, since he was the only Fairy Godfather. Having a Fairy Godfather was very controversial in
and the Fairy King was looking for a way to be rid of Tienan since he turned
down his daughter the Fairy Princess. Fairy Land
With Ms. Monsch’s use of descriptive prose it took no time at all to suspend my disbelief and dive into this story. The plot was creative and moved forward nicely. The dialogue was engagingly witty and meaningful. Reina and Tienan’s relationship became the focal point of this story and their journey had a very human aspect. The twist that the author added to Cinderella’s story was genius as far as I am concerned; it added depth to Cinderella’s character that I appreciated. I think this is an Indie author to watch.
This novella contains explicit sex scenes and adult language.
