Format: Paperback
Fairyville is clearly an unusual place - not only are there several wacky residents (notably Zoe who is a medium but who also sees fairies) but some people whose children are born in Fairyville hospital are wondering if their child was somehow switched with another child; surely their natural children shouldn't be able to levitate objects?

The book 'Fairyville' follows two couples as they try to get to the bottom of the swapped children whilst learning about themselves and each other. Zoe Clare the medium has been in love with Magnus Monroe, her landlord and manager, for two years. He seems to like her very much and yet every full moon he spends the night with another woman, although that's a one-off and he doesn't see the woman again. Zoe decides to seduce him but he seems strangely resistant; she doesn't know why but the reader is told that Magnus is a fairy prince and he is only allowed to stay on Earth if he gives the women with whom he makes love their hearts back afterwards so that they don't love him any more. He feels too strongly for Zoe and so isn't willing to have her indifferent to him after a night of sex, and thus holds back.

However, Magnus's plans aren't working too well when Zoe tries to seduce him, especially as almost immediately afterwards her old flame Alex Goodbody returns. Alex is a private investigator who has been hired to look into whether a young boy, Oscar, isn't actually Mrs Pruitt's son but was swapped when she gave birth in Fairyville. Alex left Fairyville under a cloud when discovered having sex with his football coach but Zoe still loves him and his arrival in town rekindles some of the feelings.

By Roroblu'sMum TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 22 Nov. 2007
Format: Paperback
It's more erotic chick-lit, with some VERY hot sex scenes - gay, straight, anal, menage. I am just stunned that this is classed as mainstream, and that I managed to find the book at my local library (they've also started buying Lora Leigh, yipee!!_). Lots of laughs due to the fairies and their obsession and adoration of kittens, and the characters are sympathetic enough, but for me, a HEA needs to be the couple itself - not a 'HEA but perhaps from time to time we might...' situation. But then again, I'm a romantic.
A great read, but not one personally for me for the keeper-shelf.

i really loved this book. It was different from many others that i have read. If you like a lot of passion within your book then i suggest that you read this. This also offer many steamy scenes between some of the character that you learn to love.

Well that is all i can say as the lady below me has sad it all. All i can say is buy the book and read it for yourself and you be withering with need by the end line of the book as i was doing.

5.0 out of 5 stars the goddess of erotica 21 Dec. 2014
By Anniemaus - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What is erotic for, if not to teach the real value of sexuality - it bonds us to others and makes us want to be better friends, overs and mates. Emma Holly is the best erotic author out there. Every scene is described with luscious detail, and literary elegance.
Her characters are well formed and develop through their interactions. Even better, she is a teacher of philosophy, whether of the best use of philosophy. In this Book she reminds us of the limits of power and governance. In another she explains the basic rules of physics (Strange Attractions.). This book is one of my favorites.

However, in this e-book format it is missing the epilogue, which adds a lot. I have notified Amazon.

Thank you Emma, for having inspired me.
4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating read... 23 Jun. 2013
By Kristine - Published on

This is definitely one of my favorites of hers...the background story will hold you captive while all the varied characters' relationships will keep you on the seat of you pants. One little caution though, due to the variety of love scenes (all tastefully written) this book is not for the faint of heart, or the homophobic. The only thing missing in my humble opinion is the epilogue contained in the paperback copy I read a coup
le of years ago, but as I said it's still one of my favorites.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and Sexy 28 Sept. 2007
By Lauren Dane - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love Emma Holly. I think hers were the first true erotic novels I read with romantic elements. I've remained a fan as she transitioned into steampunk and paranormals but I've always loved her erotics best. I think this may be why I wasn't shocked by the level of sexuality in the book, given her backlist, I assumed the book would have a lot of sexual content.

Fairyville is a great mix of paranormal and erotic. And make no mistake, Fairyville is an erotic with an HEA. I'll say up front there is about 60% of the sexual interaction in the book that is male/male but IMO, few people write it as well as Holly and I thought she did a bang up job (um, no pun intended)

I want to say I think of many authors out there in the erotic romance/erotica genre, Emma Holly is a prime example of how it's not about the specific combination of body parts but about the connection and emotion in the scene. When I read Fairyville, much as when I read Menage (the first Holly book I read and the book that changed my perspective on MM romance many years ago) - what caught me was the people, not their gender.

Zoe is a wonderfully likeable character who is unusual for a romance heroine (I'll let you read it to see why). Magnus is a fabulous hero. The other cast of characters from an evil Fairy queen to the Alex (the changeling PI) and Bryan, his human lover are all flawed and interesting.

I wanted more of the little fairies and of the fairy realm and I hope Holly takes us back there soon.

A fun, sexy read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but I wouldn't recommend it unless a reader is eager for a lot of erotic men with men scenes. 14 Feb. 2008
By Jane - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author gives us an interesting view of fairies living in the human world both by choice and also as changelings (babies switched at birth). The story and characters were ok, but I wasn't drawn to them the way I would have liked. One should read this for the sex, not for the story.

Story brief: Zoe is human and loves Magnus. She doesn't know he is a fairy. He must have frequent sex with other women to stay in the human world, but Zoe doesn't know this. She just sees him with others and is hurt by it.

CAUTION SPOILER: Magnus did not tell his secret to Zoe because he feared his fairy mother would harm her if Zoe knew about Magnus. However, after his mother tried to kill Zoe and planned to try again, Magnus still didn't tell her. I did not care for that method of conflict. I also didn't like to see her suffering for two years, watching him with other women. He loved her but stayed away from her, and he didn't tell her he was a fairy.

Sexual language: erotic. Number of sex scenes: more than nineteen. Setting: current day Fairyville, Arizona. Copyright: 2007. Genre: erotic paranormal romance with homosexuality.
3.0 out of 5 stars Alright 19 Jan. 2010
By M. Kelly - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Love Emma Holly's writing a ton but this just wasn't my favorite book. I am thinking that I just am not a fan of the "Fairy" type of genre or something. I don't like weird names or have to learn about different races. I am a big fan of Contempory erotica or romance. I almost don't want to review it because I am afraid that my view could sway you away from the amazing Holly books out there. Actually the reason I bought the book is because Holly wrote it.

If you love to move outside of contempory style, then you will probably really love this story.
