Twelve Days of (Faerie) Christmas
by CJ Brightley
When Charlotte meets mysterious Ronan, her comfortable life is upended in a confusion of magic, monsters, and birds. Lots of birds. But Ronan's increasingly ridiculous gifts are the least of her concerns - the spell connecting them is ticking like a bomb, and time is running out.
This is a clean standalone fantasy adventure-romance novella/short novel of about 41,000 words.
