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

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

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.

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 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!

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. :)

This book was every clique you have ever heard in a romance story . I honestly can say i forced myself to finish it . The main character cried throught the story . I found myself cringing each time she got together with the male love interest . She could have been called the fairy of many tears. This is the first book that I have given this type of review too .

This was a wonderful mix of fairytale and reality, beautiful love story. There some graphic sex scenes in it that I would seriously consider as a parent before allowing younger people to read it.

I went into reading Fairytale knowing what to expect from the story itself from fellow readers who recommended it to me. What I didn’t expect was the emotions that flooded from me towards the end of this book. When I was warned to have tissues close by I didn’t listen as I should have. We meet the three main characters as young children each of them on a very different path. Adam Reid an adventurous child who is beaten into believing that his trip to Rush was a foolish dream. Brigit, a lost orphan believing in fairytales as a way to cope with being alone in the world. And Bridin, a prisoner living on a hope of a future where she is reunited with her sister and returning to their world. All with a destiny to fulfill. Skip ahead to adulthood for these three individuals, and Adam and Brigit meet. Sparks fly!!! Brigit is hiding something and racing against time to save the only person she has ever loved. Adam knowing all about the myths and legends of fairies knows deep down what Brigit is and is fighting it. As we continue on in the story we follow with Adam and Brigit as they both fight with their childhood dreams of fairytales and the harsh world that has made them stop believing in the first place. The beginning is a slow start but well worth the buildup because the end was amazing knowing what fate has in store for these 3 characters and asking yourself how is “happily ever after” going to happen for them and then seeing how it all comes together. I was choked up twice during this book and found myself being whisked away into the emotional rollercoaster the last 3 chapters take you through. Overall I was mesmerized by this story and I am dying to read the next in the series. The one thing I was missing was a little bit more about the world of Rush, but I have been promised by my fellow readers that book 2 will satisfy that need and that I will not be disappointed. So on to book 2 I go, can’t wait to read Bridin’s story!!!! I give this book 4 ½ out of 5 stars and recommend it for any readers looking for a new spin on Fairytales.

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.

I stsrted reading this book and i really liked it. It was an incredible story, but definatly not for kids! It had way to many intimate scenes in which the details were much too gross and close. I would definatly not recommend this to people under16. Other than the scarring details and swearing, it was a exccellent read!

Page 79 is highly inapropete for kids under 14 im eleven so trust me

I have mixed opinions about this book. Maybe it was ignorance, but I kind of expected this to be more... for kids. After all, the theme is fairies. Anyway, that is probably just my inability to realize these things. For anyone else like me, there are several sex scenes. At some points, I felt like the entire book was sexually centered. On the other side, I appreciated the raw emotions in the story. I managed to cry my eyes out at the start of a page, and by the bottom of it, I was laughing my head off. Good, but quite detailed...

This book was disappointing I thought there would be more twists but the story just dragged with hardly any action. Anticlimactic is the word i would use to describe fthis book.
