Once upon a Time, in a Kingdom that was just a little twisted (oh yeah, and kinda far away), Fairy Godmothers Rule! Elf Kings drool, and a Knight was having a bad time with a Dragon.

Too bad he didn't realize the Dragon would be the least strange part of his day...

Once upon a Time, in a Kingdom that was just a little twisted (oh yeah, and kinda far away), Fairy Godmothers Rule! Elf Kings drool, and a Knight was having a bad time with a Dragon.

Too bad he didn't realize the Dragon would be the least strange part of his day...

Fairy GodMOTHER. As in female - it's right there in the name. With those divine dimples, killer blue eyes, and hard muscled body, no one's going to be mistaking Tiernan for a female anytime soon, but due to a wish gone wrong, Tiernan is now the only Fairy Godfather in existence. Strangely, most Fairy Godmothers don't have a problem with this change in the status quo... all except the one Fairy Godmother he'd go and win a kingdom for.

Organized, efficient, logical - and happy with the status quo, thank you very much - Reina never liked that Tiernan was allowed in the program. After all, the FGs do not need a stubborn, infuriating, feckless male messing up tradition, and she wants him gone...like yesterday. Circumstances arise that might let her get her wish, but in a way even she never wished for.

Tiernan's employment status is called into question, and to prove himself worthy of being an FG, he is given the task of getting a woman named Cinderella a Happily Ever After. If he doesn't, he loses his position as a Fairy Godfather and becomes human again. Unfortunately, becoming human means becoming Dragon chow. So Cinderella will get to the ball and get her Prince if he has to dress her down to her shoes himself, and he's bringing Reina along to help. After all, who said only mortals should get a Happily Ever After?

Editorial Reviews

The Romance Reviews - Reviewer Ashia
Reina and Tiernan were sizzling together. All the fights and disagreements they had only served to heighten the sexual tension, and when the moment came, they were explosive together.
The author's writing style was fun and easy to read, and I like the depth and dimension she gave to Cinderella...
The fun twist at the end is one I didn't see coming, and it left a smile on my face and a sense of wonder.
Coffee Time Romance - Reviewer Kimberly
The story itself? Why, that was a breath of fresh air!... Every little girl wishes for a Fairy Godmother to make her dreams come true, so this one struck close to my heart. Ms. Monsch writes the characters in such a way that makes them feel real to the reader, yet with a touch of whimsy to keep the Fairy Godmothers on the pedestal they belong on. As someone who adores having a touch of fun and humor with my romance, I love 'Loving a Fairy Godmother.'

Sweet, clever, and very satisfying...this story is literary chocolate! This retelling of the Cinderella story delighted from the first moment, with Tiernan the knight/fairy godfather-to be charming me even as he lay dying from a dragon shredding. I found this story in a fairy tale bundle. Thanks, $0.99 bundles, for once again introducing me to a wonderful author.

This was a great read! Danielle Monsch weaves a tale that wraps the reader in her world. Her views on the godmother/father story are interesting and a breath of fresh air. The way she bypasses the typical fairytale world and thoughts is engaging. I really liked Tiernan and Reina’s journey! If you’re looking for a different fairytale that will leave you hot for more then you’ll love this book!

Oh my! A HOT very original retold Cinderella Fairy Tale! Oh my! A HOT very original retold Cinderella Fairy Tale! I'll never think of Cinderella the same again! Danielle Monsch's imagination truly knows no bounds! I was totally blown away by her story-telling and the tale's twists and turns left me in awe! This book introduced us to Tiernan, a knight, who is in the process of dying thanks to his incompetent fairy godmother. She grants him one last wish and his wish is to become a fairy godfather. He is granted that wish and interns under Reina, who obviously doesn't think he should be a godfather. You HAVE to read this to see what happens next! This was the 1st book that I'd ever read by Danielle and it certainly won't be the last as I'm hooked now on her writing style, humor and ingenuity!  4 STARS!!!!!

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this twisted re-telling of "Cinderella" mixed with a new take on the land of Fairy Godmothers (and Godfathers). Right off the bat I enjoyed the sexual tension between Tiernan and Reina. I always love a good story that starts out with one party being infatuated with the other, and the second party either being oblivious, or very aware of the fact, but not willing to engage. In Tiernan and Reina's case it was the latter. Reina disapproves of the fact that Tiernan was granted a wish by an inept Fairy Godmother that allowed him to become the one and only Fair Godfather. She is determined to have him removed from duty and sent far away from her. However, Tiernan has other plans. He was besotted by Reina the very first time he laid eyes on her. "Her face was every secret desire he'd ever had come alive, every wish he never made for fear of being prideful." Things get a little tricky though whenever the Elf King hatches a plan to have Tiernan's Fairy Godfather status revoked (which would result in him being returned to his mortal state and his imminent death due to a horrible wound he had sustained moments before wishing to be a Fairy Godfather). He accuses Tiernan of not producing any HEA's (Happily Ever Afters), and that he is a failure as a Fairy Godfather. The truth is that Tiernan isn't a failure, but thinks that it is more important for the people he helps to fall in love and not miss out on being content for the rest of their lives, rather than risk it all for a fantastical HEA ending. Plus, the Elf King is really only upset that Tiernan has turned down the advances of the Elf King's daughter, so wants him banished. The Fairy Godmother council determines that Tiernan will have one last chance to secure a HEA, and appoints Fairy Godmother Reina to assist him and make sure that the Elf King does not attempt to sabotage Tiernan's HEA. They are sent to help a young maiden named Cinderella find true love with a Prince. Now this is where the story got really good for me. Cinderella and the Prince are already in love - but the Prince has been incognito for years, posing as a messenger in his kingdom so that he can really get to know the common people. Cinderella is in love with him as a messenger, and has no idea that he is the Prince. However, their relationship has never proceeded past innocent flirting because Cinderella has been lied to by her stepsisters and stepmother about the ways of love between a man and a woman. She is scared to engage with men, because she is convinced that they will hurt her and it will be her fault. She is petrified of the sexual interaction between a man and a woman. Tiernan and Reina hatch a plan to help Cinderella overcome this fear and be more accepting of her sensual side so that she will feel comfortable excepting the advances of the Prince once he reveals who he is at the ball that is being hosted in honor of his "return." This master plan involves Tiernan and Reina putting on a show that they guarantee Cinderella will witness. This unconventional "education" of Cinderella is a success, and very, very, hot! Plus, it presents the perfect opportunity for Tiernan and Reina to relieve the sexual tension between the two of them that has been building for 30 years. In the end (well we all know how this story ends), Cinderella gets her HEA, and Tiernan is allowed to remain a Fairy Godfather. But the events that transpired between him and Reina while on their assignment leave them both changed. He has tore down the walls around Reina's heart that she put up after her former fiancé broke her heart, and she has realized that she loves him, and that he has always loved her. "I wanted you forever. I wanted your heart as well as your body." After returning to Fairy land, the threat from the Elf King has been eliminated and Tiernan is welcomed back as a Fairy Godfather with open arms. However, he and Reina now have their very own HEA to go after and ask for a re-assignment. Danielle Monsch wraps it all up very nicely with a bow, revealing one last twist that I saw coming, but was glad that it happened because it completed the story perfectly. My only complaint about this novella was that it was too short! I wanted more of these characters - more suspense and build-up - more of everything! It was very well written (like everything of Danielle Monsch's), and I was enjoying the story so much I didn't want it to end. I am glad, however, that I picked this up because I enjoyed it immensely. It is a very fun and engaging read that can (and should be) enjoyed in one sitting.

Loving A Fairy Godmother by Danielle Monsch “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 Fairy Land and the Fairy King was looking for a way to be rid of Tienan since he turned down his daughter the Fairy Princess. 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. A small number of proofing errors. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog.
