What Would You Do If…?
By Terry Spear
What would you do if your dad was one of the fae, and that knowledge and the fact you can SEE the fae could get you killed?
Keep a low profile, right?
In The Dark Fae, Alicia does, until she goes to South Padre Island in south Texas with her girlfriend, Cassie. After working odd jobs to earn enough money to visit the beach, they’re determined to have fun. Until Alicia sees one of the dark fae target Cassie and she knows the fae will play with her and break her heart.
So Alicia does what any best friend would do…attempts to thwart the fae before it’s too late. The problem is that the fae realizes there’s something different about Alicia. She’s not just a normal human girl who’s just coated his bare chest with carbonated sodas. And fighting smiling about it.
She is nearly as evilly mischievous as his kind are, but there’s something more. He thinks she can see the fae when no one but the fae can see them. Unless she’s a fae seer. And that concerns him.
Getting even is secondary on his mind. First, he has to know—can she see the fae when they’re invisible to the humans?
He should want to turn her over to his mother, the queen of the dark fae, who will most likely want to eliminate the girl. But Alicia’s already gotten under his skin. She’s more interesting than any girl he’s ever met, and he’s not giving her up…for now.
So if your dad was one of the fae and you can see the fae, what would you do?
Best to keep a low profile. But what if your girlfriend was targeted by one of the dark fae? Would you let her deal with the trouble all on her own? Or step in and make a stand?
Some would say she was being foolhardy. What’s a broken heart when being a known fae seer can get you killed?
The story doesn’t end there. Lady Sessily in The Deadly Fae, is a dark fae assassin. She’s not guild certified because the guild doesn’t accept women. But she’s actually working under her father’s name…and now she can’t get out of the game. She’s tried, turned down jobs, but then a lord arrives who wants her father to do a job and won’t take no for an answer. He’s one of the cobra fae, and deadly determined for the job to get done. She’s ready to put both the guild master’s name and this pompous but dangerous cobra fae’s name on her termination list, and then retire. But the cobra fae has a few tricks up his royal sleeves and he’s really not letting her get out of the job. Don’t you just hate it when you want to quit a job and can’t?
Then in The Winged Fae, the winged fae is fighting her mother’s choice to wed her to a dark fae, who she knows is seeing some human girl at South Padre Island. Remember Cassie? So she gets interested in a dragon fae, but the dark fae’s cousin gets in the way…and after shooting him with a sleeping dart that will make him sorry for interfering with her plans, she takes pity on him, and wants to right the wrong. Only now, she’s in all kinds of hot water for it.
The Ancient Fae is all about Deveron’s sister, Ritasia. She’s used to trying to rescue her brother and cousins when they get themselves into trouble. But now who’s there to rescue her? From around the world, a tyrant king is seeking a bride, and Ritasia, who is the most stubborn and amusing girl he’s ever met is perfect for the role. Although she doesn’t look anything like what he would envision his queen to look like as she’s digging around at an archaeological site dressed in men’s breeches and tunic. But it’s her infinity for trouble that makes him believe she’s just the one for him, except he has to make sure the unseelie and seelie worlds don’t go to war over what she’s stirred up first.
So you see, the fae don’t bring mischief just into the human world. They can manufacture it quite nicely in their own world as well. Next up is Dragon Fae. Alicia’s grandfather, king of the dragon fae, has already stated she could marry Deveron, prince of the dark fae. But her grandfather is already backing down on the agreement. And the girl that arrives at court, known as Dragon Slayer, is commissioned to see to the king’s wishes. She doesn’t like headstrong princesses, but she’s being paid enough to get the job done. Coming end of December. :)
And that’s it for now! The fae rule the world…at least they think so when they come to visit the humans. We ought to show them a thing or two. Think I will with Cassie and the dark fae who’s stolen her heart…
Thanks so much for dropping by and saying hi!
Tell me, what would you do if you could see the fae?
