Three tales, each featuring the fair folk and their tricky, magical methods...
Claws at Hand
After the fairy king grants him the feline body he's always longed for, Tobi works to uphold his end of the bargain by serving as messenger between the fairy court and the powerful wizard Baba Yaga. The only thing that could break the fairy's spell is if Tobi somehow manages to win the hand of a prince. Given Baba Yaga's home is located in a monster-infested thicket, that seems unlikely.
But then a young woman named Robin Weatherwax comes to Russia to study magic under Baba Yaga. Before she's even started her first lesson she's gone and rescued a prince: a prince who loves cats, as it turns out. No matter what, Tobi can't risk accepting the prince's friendship. He'll slash those spell-breaking prince hands to ribbons if he has to. If he doesn't, he could very well lose his hard-earned cathood.
The Fake Path to True Memory
"Those memories might be important some day," Charlie's husband whispered. "You might want them after I'm gone."
Charlie did remember two things about his husband: the man had known Charlie wasn't human, and he'd made Charlie promise to always remember his Faerie Realm origin. Now old age has left Charlie with nothing to occupy his time but those two facts and his quest to reclaim his most treasured memory: the name of the man he spent a mortal lifetime with.
What's a girl to do when her duties as bridesmaid suddenly require her to wear a wedding dress, too? The bride's odd family tradition is meant to confuse evil spirits who seek to steal brides away on their special day. Chelsea might think it cute if she weren't still nursing her wounded pride after her own disaster of an attempted wedding. But Jennifer's been there for her as she put the pieces back together, so the least Chelsea can do is put on a stupid dress. Besides, it's not like a real evil spirit is going to steal her away.
