Loving a Fairy Godmother

Fairy_Godmother_final2500 - Copy (405x640)

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 who he'd go and win a kingdom for.

Reina has never been like the others. Organized, efficient, logical - and liking the status quo, thank you very much. 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 just might let her get her wish, but in a way even she never wished for.

Tiernan's employment status is called into question, and he is given the task of getting a woman named Cinderella a Happily Ever After or lose his position as a Fairy Godfather. 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, don't Fairy Godmothers deserve Happily Ever Afters too?

Sizzling Hot Book Reviews Rating: 4 out of 5

Loving A Fairy Godmother is a very quick adorable story about love, patience and following your heart. The dialogue in Loving A Fairy Godmother is very cute and had me laughing a few times. The couple of intimate scenes were very hot and tied the story together well. I would recommend Loving A Fairy Godmother to anyone who enjoys a good love story with a definite HEA [Happily Ever After] in more ways than one.

The Romance Reviews Rating: 4 out of 5

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.
LOVING A FAIRY GODMOTHER is a fine piece of writing by Ms. Danielle Monsch and I'm looking forward to read more of her work.

BookWenches.com Rating: 4.75 out of 5

There is no way around it; Loving a Fairy Godmother is just plain adorable…The storyline is fresh and highly entertaining. The characters will take hold and make an imprint on your memory. I particularly enjoyed the humor-infused banter between the characters…

CoffeeTimeRomance.com Rating: 5 out of 5

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.’

Excerpt


“Godfather Tiernan–”

“You can just call me Tiernan,” he interrupted.

She tried again. “Godfather Tiernan–”

“Didn’t Sara just tell you that you had to follow my directions?”

That pushed her over the edge. “Do you truly think you are going to secure a HEA when you haven’t been able to do it yet?”

He let out a derisive snort, but immediately realized that was a huge mistake. Her face lost her usual look of annoyance crossed with bemused tolerance, leaving pure ice in its place. “This is why men should not be allowed into the Godmother program. None of you have any respect for Happily Ever Afters.”

“I never said I didn’t believe in HEAs” he began, but she cut him off.

“Every case you’ve been on tells me you don’t believe, or else you would have tried once, just once, to get one!”

His hands slammed on the table as he leaned across it, his face coming inches from hers. “I’ve never tried because I believe in love! Humans need love so much, who the hell was I to screw up two people in love to get them to HEA status? I could never forgive myself if two people in love missed out on each other because of my actions!”

All anger fled her face, and a hesitant, unsure look came over features. “What do you think a HEA is?”

He drew in a deep breath, sitting down once again. “I think happily ever after is a nice way to end a story, but in the world I remember, it’s a waste.”

Her hand was halfway towards him before she seemed to remember their roles, and she pulled it back to her side. “Love is wonderful, but only love alone is incomplete. You can love someone, but they can ultimately not be right for you. Even in love, people can still be led to believe the worst of each other, still hurt each other, still decide they are better without the other,” she began, her words hesitant, as if she was trying to define to herself what it all meant as much as to him. “But the Happily Ever After is so much more. It’s finding your perfect match, love purified, refined, to such an extent that it can never be sundered. With a Happily Ever After, men can achieve greatness, as can all the generations who follow growing up in its shadow.”

“And you think jeopardizing the surety of a love match now is worth it for only the possibility of a Happily Ever After?” he asked, his voice gentle, reverent, wanting nothing to break this intimacy their words were creating.

“I do. In your view, maybe that seems cruel, but in my view, there is no greater tragedy then two people who almost make this connection but fall short in the end.”

Such a hard exterior to cover such a tender heart. “I’m not sure if I can believe as you do,” he said after considering her words. “But I never want Sara… you… to feel as if I let you down. After we get this situation behind us, I want you proud of the job I do.”

And as his breath caught at the rare smile she bestowed upon him just then, he knew all she had to do was keep smiling at him like that, and anything she wanted, whether it be his beliefs or his blood, he would give her.

Her smile faded, and the moment ended. Reina cloaked herself in her position of authority as she handed him the file that had been sitting on her desk. It was already open to show a picture of a blond girl, pretty and vibrant with a mouth full of straight white teeth, all of which was evident even underneath the dirt. “I looked over this case earlier, before I realized what was going on,” she said. “It is a good, solid HEA case. There are several challenges to overcome, but also several sources of help for the client. It is about as perfect as a case can be for this purpose, as evenly balanced as I’ve ever seen. No one can accuse the council of favoring either side. The girl’s name is Cinderella. She lives with an abusive Stepmother and two rotten spoiled stepsisters. She is a very kind, generous girl–though a little too much of a doormat, if you ask me–but outside of that, not really any other character flaws. She is much beloved in her village, children and small animals flock to her daily. In short, we exist to give HEAs to mortals like her.”

Tiernan read the file quickly, then flipped the page and took in the photo of the male who would supply the HEA. “A prince, huh? That’s pretty standard.”

“Indeed, but for the most part, we don’t mess with the classics here.” The pointed look she gave him told him he was one of the exceptions, and she wasn’t necessarily thrilled about it. Ah yes, completely back to normal.

He returned that look with a flirty smile. “I used to serve royalty, Godmother Reina. Believe me when I say, sometimes the large crown is to compensate for something.”

“Oh really? Well, I assume we can say the same thing about your sword, eh, knight?”

Maybe not completely back to normal after all. The second those words passed her lips her eyes went saucer wide, and Tiernan couldn’t say who was more shocked, him or Reina herself. There was no way he was letting this pass. His voice coming out a low growl, he replied, “Why, Reina, I never knew you were interested in the size of my sword. Anytime you want a private viewing, I will be more than happy to oblige.”
