Can a kidnapped fairy and a human find love despite all odds?

Nathan Alexander’s batty aunt has done it again. This time she’s sent him a rare plant he doesn’t want. Imagine his surprise when he finds a kidnapped fairy hidden within its leaves. As a man who heads a non-profit organization for abused women and children, Nathan makes it his mission to help her find her way home.

All her life Katenia was warned about the evilness of humans. Never was that proved more true than when she was kidnapped from her quiet valley home. Thrust into the human world, Katenia must fight her very instincts to trust Nathan if she ever hopes to return to her rightful place…and to her normal thumb-sized fairy form.

But with their lives in danger, finding home…and love…will be a journey worthy of a fairy tale.


“Nathan? Are you alright? You look like you’re contemplating ways to kill me.”
He opened his eyes and glared at her, even as he let out a shuddering laugh. “No, Katenia,” he gritted out through clenched teeth. “Killing you is not what is on my mind. I thought you said we would be a bad idea?”
“I did,” she said, her beautiful face screwing up in confusion. “Pair-bonding between us would never work. Sex, however…sex is a very good idea.”
Nathan nodded once, finally understanding. Ignoring the honking of the line of cars behind him, he rolled up one shirtsleeve and pinched his arm.
“What are you doing?” she asked, her voice worried.
He barked out a laugh when the pain did nothing to wake him from whatever dream he’d landed in. “Testing myself.”
“Oh.” She sighed. “I don’t know what that means.”
“I don’t, either, but considering I am not certifiable enough to have sex with a fairy, the only other logical conclusion is I’m dreaming.”
“Oh,” she repeated, still sounding confused. “Are you dreaming?”
He sighed and shook his head, accepting the facts laid out before him. “No. My whole world view has just been altered, but unfortunately, I am not dreaming.”

My Review: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

Ever Mine is a cute urban fantasy romance novella. It's a quick, enjoyable read with a really sweet ending.

Katenia is a fairy whose flower home is given to Nathan by his aunt as a gift. When Katenia turns full size almost immediately, she is desperate to revert to her fairy form and go home. It doesn't take long, though, for Katenia and Nathan to fall head over heels for each other.

Katenia is portrayed in a manner that reminded me of Ariel from The Little Mermaid. She seemed to be aware of the "giants" as her people refer to humans, but I was never sure how much she knew about us. Her level of fear always seemed off-- she was awfully accepting of what would be a nightmarish experience. All Ariel got were legs, and she wanted them. Katenia grows from the size of Nathan's thumb into human size and loses her wings.

It's a love story at the core, so she must fall in love within these 105 pages. Perhaps she was so absorbed by the strength of her attraction toward Nathan that she was blind to other things.

This is a light, feel-good story that would make a good beach or vacation read. Just be sure to bring your imagination and leave your disbelief at the door.
