Overview

“Best fairy book I’ve ever read! An incredible read.” ~Tonya from Kentucky

“A true fairytale. It even started with ‘Once upon a time.’ You won’t be disappointed.” ~Nicole Hill “Nikki” from Florida

Book One of Two in the Fairies of Rush duet, FAIRYTALE is a sexy, sensual fantasy romance novel. Not for children, very much an adult book. Not erotica, just good old fashioned steamy fantasy romance.

Brigit Malone can paint anything she sees, and uses that skill to get herself and her best friend, homeless Razor Face Malone off the streets. Living the straight life is good until an old enemy kidnaps Raze and demands Brigit forge a privately owned painting, switch the fake for the original, and deliver it.

But that painting is the prize possession of Adam Reid, who once glimpsed the fantastical images it holds in a childhood memory he now considers a hallucination. When he later found the painting, he had to own it.

Neither of them realize the images in the painting are actually a message from the twin sister Brigit doesn’t know she has, a message calling her back to the enchanted kingdom of Rush, where the two half fay twins are destined to put down the usurping Dark Prince Tristan and restore peace to their home, a land far, far away.

A fairytale for grown up girls!

“Wonderful read. Difficult to put down!” Gretchen M Fatouros “Crafty Gretch” from NY

“I loved this book at the story. Reminds me sometimes you have to take a moment and be a kid again.” ~”Ambuschur”

If you’re enjoying the current spate of fairytale remakes on big screens and small, like SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, MIRROR, MIRROR, & the TV series ONCE UPON A TIME, you will love this story.

And don’t miss part two of this two book series, FOREVER ENCHANTED. You’ll also enjoy Maggie’s epic fantasy romance epic stand-alone novel, ANNIE’S HERO

RT Book Review - Jill M. Smith
Category author Maggie Shayne makes an awesome single title debut with FAIRYTALE, her extraordinarily captivating and exhilarating story of mortals, fairies and the forces of good and evil. This guaranteed page-turner will leave you panting for more!
Amazon - Susan Bontley
Maggie Shayne has always been a favorite of the specialty romance readers. Now she has brought her considerable talents to her first single title release, Fairytale. In a near perfect blend of real-life with the imaginary, Ms. Shayne casts a spell that draws you in, like the fairy tales we all read as children. And, like when we were children, we didn't want the story to end when we closed the cover. Maggie Shayne has once again been able weave her web of words to create a world between the wh

    I loved this book!

    This book is about a Fairy Tale that mixes with reality, and to be honest aren't we all wishing Fairy Tales mixed with reality for real? It was a really great book and worth the read in my opinion.

    Warning to Parents & Kids!

    Do not under any circumstances read this book unless you've had 'the talk'! Believe me, I was traumatized when I was a teen by this type of thing. Everything was fine and dandy until pg. 79, then from there it only got worse until chapter 10. After that it hit rock bottom on the nasties, for lack of a better kid friendly word. Without the nasties, this would been one of the best books out there. So overall, 5-stars.

    Good read!

    Good book, a little slow in the middle. Leaves me wondering what happens in Rush when the story is over. Hope a sequel is in the works!

    A "Not REAL" fan. This has consentual rape.

    Consentual rape is described here and passed off as the fault of the female. This would be a confusing situation for both sexually imature females and males with long term effect. It is never okay even if both parties are stimulated and it certainly is not okay to hurt someone intentually during sex.This is an obvious deception for hard core erotica at the expence of our youth. The title, book cover and details of story and to include the first part of book do not provide any warning of the erotica content to be forced on you suddenly. I certainly resented it. Pretty dragged out basic plot too.

    Love it!

    I totally loved this book! The love story, mystery, and action are together in an amazing mixture in the book Fairytale. When I read the book for the first time I was surprised by how graphic the sex parts were but it really isn't graphic... compared to other books. If you are under the age of probably 13 I would not suggest this book. If you are a mature young adult or adult then I totally recommend it. :)

    Decent premise, but horrible writing

    I got through the first 120 pages without a problem and suddenly the quality of the writing took a major dive. I am pretty sure I wrote better than this when I was in high school. One-word sentences, poor punctuation, and inconsistent writing turned me off from this book. I am only glad I didn't pay for it. I am happy to let it collect virtual dust in my Nook archive.
