Ivy has only one Faerie wish—but many choices.

The Fey Quartet novellas are adult fairy tale romances. Each novella has a different feel to it--some are darker, some lighter. Themes include: wishes, secrets, new beginnings, dangerous live Faeries, dangerous dead Faeries, disguises, shapeshifting, telepathy, treachery, loyalty – and falling in love.
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 once I rewrote it; 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:
