Keely, a very special faery, is the common element in all these stories, taking her from a young child to giving her a love story of her own as an adult faery. I fell in love with Keely when I first read of her in Faery Good Advice in the No Law Against Love anthology. Throughout the stories, she's on a learning curve as a matchmaker, sometimes making mistakes but always sincere and finally helps all the characters make their dreams come true.
Every story is funny, heartwarming, and sexy. I don't know which characteristic I liked best, because they all are written in equal measure and with a lot of love. Ms. Rogers' sense of humor and whimsy captivated me. I could recommend reading Faery Special Romances if you need a little spiritual pick-me-up during your day, if you need a laugh, if you need a quick sense of adventure, or of romance.
Perhaps the most impressive fact of this book is that all the royalties will be donated to the Children's Tumor Foundation to aid in raising awareness and the research of neurofibromatosis. Keely is a wonderful ambassador to this cause. I know you'll enjoy the artistry of each and every story and maybe start looking amongst yourselves for a faery friend in your own life.
Much Ado About Faeries (1599) Caedmon protects the Portal in his charge well. But Queen Yana has decided it time for him to chase down his betrothed, Gracie, from the human world. He has only two thousand years to raise an heir to maturity; else, the powers of the Portal would be ceded to the queen. While in the Human World, Caedmon must also check in on Queen Yana's changeling nephew, Bill Shakespeare. If only Princess Keely were not around to "play". Sometimes, Keely can be worse than goblins.
Faeries of the Caribbean (1655) Myra Baker, a serving winch, wishes for a faery godmother and Keely appears. Myra wishes to wed a son of a viscount and hear the wind from the sea. Next thing Myra knows she is on Captain Devlin's pirate ship, somewhere in the Caribbean.
Faery Thee Well (1750) Due to a couple of recent deaths, Rhionne must bear the child of a man chosen to be Lugh of the Sun. Yet in order to ensure the child will be born on Beltaine Eve, Rhionne must receive his seed this very night. Should Rhionne fail, all will suffer drought and famine for a year. The human man chosen as Lugh is named Duncan. But what happens should Duncan refuse?
My Faery Lady (1814) Gryffyn (Lord Kembell in the Human World) is in London for a year making his contribution to humanity. Gryffyn chose optics and discreetly uses his magic to make designer spectacles for ladies in Society. This is how he meets "Effie". Gryffyn finds himself drawn to the human female, but she is betrothed to a duke. Even if Gryffyn and Effie were to somehow get together, she would have to choose to live in the Faery World.
A Faery Good Bet (1850) When Zachary Dillon is beat close to death, he stumbles through a Portal into Faery World. Gwennyth, the Faery World Healer, has to bond to the human male in order to save him. But when Dillon returns to the Human World, Gwennyth loses her healing magic.
The Duchess and the Dirtwater Faery (1885) When Isabelle's wagon gets stuck in the mud in the town of Dirtwater, in Idaho Territory, Kegan comes to the rescue. Kegan may be the blacksmith and unofficial sheriff, but he is also a faery. Who better to deal with the hired guns that come looking for Isabelle?
Faery Foxy Flapper (1926) Princess Keely keeps telling Jazzie that Blair is her true mate. But it is Quinn's kisses that curl her toes.
Faery Hot Date (1968) Sean Morgan is more than simply a dentist. He is the Region Sixteen Tooth Faery. Candi brings her daughter, Moriah, in because the child had been trying to pull out her tooth in hopes of getting enough money to buy a present. Sean has no time for dating. He has told Keely that many times. But Sean cannot help being attracted to Candi. The LAST thing he should do is hire Candi as his bookkeeper.
Faery Good Advice (Time Unknown) Keely runs Virgin Freedom Travel in the Human World and needs to book some vacations soon. Keely thinks she may be saved when the call comes in for a virgin honeymoon trip for Tyler Grant and his fiancée. But then the fiancée not only tells Keely that she is dumping Tyler and running off with someone else; the lady also tells Keely to be the one to inform Tyler that he has been jilted!
***** Ten couples and ten romances within one terrific book! Princess Keely seems to pop into each story somehow. The first romance story begins in England, the year 1199. With each tale the years pass and eventually end up in the United States of America. As the reader, it was as if I journeyed through time and history with Keely, who gets her own romance story in the end ... with an interesting twist.
Author Jacquie Rogers has a winner with this gem. Recommended! *****
