“A true fairytale. It even started with ‘Once upon a time.’ You won’t be disappointed.” ~Nicole Hill “Nikki” from Florida
Book One of Two in the Fairies of Rush duet, FAIRYTALE is a sexy, sensual fantasy romance novel. Not for children, very much an adult book. Not erotica, just good old fashioned steamy fantasy romance.
