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.Read more ›
A great read, but not one personally for me for the keeper-shelf.
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.

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.
le of years ago, but as I said it's still one of my favorites.
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.
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.
If you love to move outside of contempory style, then you will probably really love this story.
