When Monique finds out her brother, Kieran, is planning her future with the one fairy she wants nothing to do with, she seeks refuge in the human world. Now Kieran fears she will be the next victim in a string of murdered fairies and is determined to bring her home.

Hiding should be a breeze. She can control any human with a flirtatious smile and an attraction spell. Until she meets Daniel Elliot, the only human who's immune to both.

A year ago, Daniel's fiancée disappeared with the engagement ring, an Elliot family heirloom. He's ready to move forward with his life, but his mother's obsession with retrieving the ring makes that impossible. Then Monique walks into his office to apply for a job.

Daniel and Monique can't deny their attraction, but will the reason he's Fairyproof be too much to overcome?

    A Fairy Story Grounded in the Real World

    Constance Phillips has written a fairy story for adults that is totally grounded in the real world, with very believable bridges between the worlds of fairy and human. Her fairies have wants, needs, and internal power struggles, as well as prejudices and desires... similar in many ways to human characters, except for their magical powers, which they use to control situations, humans, and each other.

    Monique is a fairy hiding in the human world from her brother Kieran, and his plans for her future. Those plans include an arranged marriage to a power-hungry fairy who already tried to force himself on her once. She wants a different life for herself, one of her own choosing. It's not that she rejects her fairy heritage as much as she wants to make her own choices - a concept that most of us can relate to.

    She's been using her fairy influence to move from city to city and job to job, until she meets Daniel Elliot, a the only human she's ever met who's immune to her spells and charms. He's seemingly "fairyproof" which intrigues Monique, even as the attraction between them grows. Throw in the fact that her brother is constantly searching for her and other fairies are turning up dead in the human world, and there's a lot going on...

    The author keeps up a fast pace as Monique tries to stay two steps ahead of her brother, Kieran tries to solve the mystery surrounding the fairy murders, the evil fairy Eeon tries to find and control Monique for his own power grab, and Daniel must come to terms with the fact that things in his world are not what they seem.

    Ms. Phillips does an excellent job of weaving the storylines together to a satisfying conclusion. This is not a mystical or supernatural take on the fairy world, but has fairies that are much more "human" in nature, like the ones written by Charlaine Harris or Eoin Colfer. I enjoyed the book immensely, but at 262 pages it was over far too quickly. I hope there are more stories like this coming soon from this author!
