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.
In September 2007 I added: Okay, now that I've actually read the entire book, let me tell you, I've never encountered one quite like it. Unique, beautifully written and classic humor! This is on my keeper shelf!
Shaylah a faery is sent on a task by Queen Yana to help Sir Darian find his true love, and with the help of Yana's daughter Keely, ends up to be Shaylah herself!

*** What a delightful collection of stories! This impressive author took the concept of the young faery Keely and brought her through the ages (Faeries live thousands of years, don't cha know!) from pesky adolescent to adulthood. In each story she is sometimes charming, sometimes bossy, but always amusing in her antics and smart aleck dialogs. Each tale is charming all on its own and you will learn a lot about faery life from this wonderfully conceived and precious collection of short stories that will entertain you from the first to last page!
This started out as a short story in the No Law Against Love Anthology. It was one of the best stories in that book and definately worth a novel of its own.
What was truly amazing is that the entire collection of stories flowed easily from one to the next. In each story, the characters were well developed and interesting. I was pleasantly surprised that each of the many characters and various races in the book had distinct personalities and were easy to keep apart.
I really enjoyed this unique mix of fantasy, humor and romance. I was uncertain about what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised. It was an origional book and worth every penny.
Even better, all proceeds from the book go to the Children's Tumor Foundation!
I would recommend this book to everyone. There is bound to be a story in here just for you!
