Through the Fairy Ring


Through the Fairy Ring

by Melissa McTernan

GENRE:   Romance

Alice’s life is falling apart. Her boyfriend cheated on her, she lost her job, and she managed to get herself lost on an ill-fated hiking trip. When she passes out in a small clearing in the woods she never imagined she would wake up in a new world; a world with beautiful people, amazing sights, and a sexy Fae stranger.

Wren is not accustomed to wanting. He has everything he needs: good friends, good food, good sex. And he has had it for decades. He’s forgotten what it is to want something, to need something beyond reason. He had forgotten, but when he meets Alice, the feeling creeps back in. He wants Alice and he can’t have her. And it hurts.

Can people from two different worlds figure out a way to be together, or will they be forced to live apart?


Wren ran a hand down Alice’s cheek, and she smiled in her sleep. He stood from his crouch to find Coralie watching him with a raised eyebrow.

“Getting a bit attached to your little pet?”

“Please stop calling her that.” He started stuffing pillows into his bag, each one disappearing as soon as he shoved them in. “And I’m not attached. I just want her to be comfortable.”

Coralie squatted next to him, rolling up a blanket. “There’s nothing wrong with getting attached,” she told him pointedly, “but not with this one. You can’t keep her.”

Wren growled a little in frustration. “I’m perfectly aware of the situation. I’m taking her to Orla, aren’t I?”

“You are. But there are faster ways to get to Orla, and you know it. You wanted to keep her with you longer.”

He ran a hand down his face, not wanting to examine why he wanted to keep Alice with him a bit longer. He chocked it up to curiosity. He had never met a human, and he liked her. Was that so wrong?

A rustling behind him brought the discussion to an end. Alice yawned sleepily from her nest of blankets. “Morning,” she mumbled, pushing the hair from her face. Wren felt his mouth creeping into a smile at the sight of her, but Coralie’s appraising stare was still on him, so he turned quickly and continued packing.

  4. Interesting romance, cheers to your new book.

  5. This is certainly a more drastic romance of people from very different backgrounds than frequently written about--talk about cultural differences!
