Larkspur Miller’s sister is lame and nothing short of a Faerie wish will cure her—but Larkspur knows how to earn a wish.
It won’t be easy, and it will require a man.
Larkspur has chosen her man: Cadoc Ironfist, liegeman to the Lord Warder of Dapple Vale. But Cadoc is reluctant, and the task is more dangerous than Larkspur realized...
“Her haunting prose reads like Hans Christian Andersen for twenty-first century adults.” ~ Mindy Klasky, USA TODAY bestselling author

Q & A with the author
How would you describe the Fey Quartet novellas?
The Fey Quartet novellas are adult fairy tale romances. Each novella has a different feel to it--some are darker, some lighter. Larkspur’s Quest is one of the darker ones. It's a story about a woman determined to make things right, a man torn between loyalty and love, and a bargain that could prove deadly. Themes are: reluctant heroes, virgin heroines, being careful what you wish for, facing the consequences of your decisions--and never trust a Faerie!
Who would like this quartet of novellas?
The Fey Quartet novellas are romances with strong heroines, a medieval backdrop, and a dash of magic. They will appeal to romance readers, especially those who enjoy medieval romances or fairy tale romances. Readers who like historical fantasy and fantasy with strong romantic elements would also enjoy the novellas.
How would you describe your writing?
I’ve had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan, Mary Balogh, and Georgette Heyer, all of which are massive compliments. An editor once said my writing reminded her of Lois McMaster Bujold, but she was rejecting me at the time, so that was more of a bittersweet compliment! (That book did sell later; it’s one of my Emily Gee fantasy novels.)
What order should I read the Fey Quartet novellas in?
Each novella can be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading them in the following order for the best reading experience:
Maythorn’s Wish Hazel’s Promise Ivy’s Choice Larkspur’s Quest
