Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
I love paranormal and fantasy, and when it involves Fae the potential for something really different is high, so I was looking forward to this book. Sadly it didn't work for me. I found Jaye odd, supposedly a successful businessman he meets Allyn at a convention where he is overseeing an event and, attracted to her he...asks her out? no... asks her to come to the bar for a drink? no. He asks her to tell him a bedtime story, as he's been having trouble sleeping! Then later, when she hasn't responded to his numerous emails, the only point of contact between them, but turns up with his assistant Tommy's boyfriend to take him to a Fae Fair he goes without question...they walk across a car park into another world, and he takes it all in his stride :o - I just felt he'd have acted differently right from the start, as a successful businessman he'd have questioned more, been more resourceful, proactive, but instead he just tags along without questioning anything. Then the food at the Fair, I was expecting mead, wines made from fruits and trees, honey cakes, little delicious titbits like mushroom pasties and fruit breads soaked in nectar...and what did they have, beer, coleslaw and grilled turkey legs. Have you seen the size of even a small turkey leg. Mum used to roast one for a meal for the five of us, they're not dainty things and just didn't fit the mental image I had. Sadly at this point I gave up. I just couldn’t find any credulity in the story. Maybe I’m just too literal, and need to be more open minded, but for me a story has to have characters I love (and hate of course, need the bad ones ) and a plot that's realistic within the parameters of fantasy of course.
Maybe you can ignore the parts that didn't work for me, and go along with the story and enjoy it – we all like different things, and this is just one persons view. From the four and five star reviews I'm clearly in the minority, but that's what makes books so exciting, that there is always something for everyone whatever your personal taste. Its priced at £1.92 for 230 pages.
Stars: Two, the story just didn't work for me.

Jaye Zeroun is successful in his own right. He believes himself older, wiser and certainly doesn't believe in fairytales anymore, especially ones that are mystical in nature. He is more of a cynic than anything else. That is until Allyn enters his life and turns his life inside out and upside down all in the space of a few hours of their first meeting. Fated you could say.
Later when evil threatens the bond they've grown between each other Jaye must make hard choices; go the easy path of denial or the hard path and win a love of a lifetime.
BY KELTIC DESIGN is a fabulous fantasy romance. From start to finish you are always rooting for Allyn and Jaye. Both characters have their vulnerabilities which only make them for likable for their flaws. It makes them seem and feel more human and realistic. Their unwavering love at the end is a classic tissue moment you won't want to miss.
Jay Zeroun is a very successful businessman, successful but unhappy. Allyn Keely has a life that most of us can only dream of. She's a successful artist - and a friend of the faerie. When the two meet, sparks fly - blue ones.
But, at thriteen years his senior, Allyn thinks she's too old for Jay. And Jay, how could he love a woman who believes in fairies? Then, of course, there are those of the faeries who are evil and want to keep the two of them apart.
Do you believe in the Faerie? You will after you read By Keltic Design.
