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.

What do you get when you mix 1 part magic, 1 part comedy and 2 parts romance? 
Ever Mine by Eden Ashe.

A quick, highly entertaining novella, Ever Mine tells the story of Katenia, a kidnapped fairy who suddenly finds herself at the mercy of Nathan, a human male in the human world. The two have to work together to solve the mystery of Katenia’s kidnapping and her subsequent transformation from a thumb sized fairy to a human sized woman. There’s plenty of giggles to be had as Katenia and Nathan learn to communicate with one another (Katenia doesn’t always understand human lingo and takes a lot of common phrases in a literal sense) but also a sweet and sexy forbidden romance between the two.

Though he doesn’t want to believe it, Nathan has had a brush with magic already, though not the good kind. He’s one of my favorite types of heroes though. The hidden alpha male. In the beginning of Ever Mine Nathan comes across as a kind of geeky workaholic who doesn’t know what to do with a gorgeous woman but the minute Katenia becomes human sized, he turns into this sexy and protective male who doesn’t appreciate any one looking at his fairy.

Katenia is unintentionally funny as she tries to adjust to the human way of life and she does it in such a way that came across as sweetly na├»ve. She’s had a lot of ideas put into her head about how wicked and cruel humans are but Nathan quickly shows her that not all of them are like that. As they spend more and more time together, the two start to fall in love which complicates matters further.

Ever Mine is a fast paced, quick read that I thoroughly enjoyed, Nathan and Katenia are fun and entertaining and the villains are just dark and evil enough to make things interesting. There’s a great blend of romance, humor and magic that just worked for me. My usual problem with fairy romances is that they can be complicated and have an overwhelming about of magic and terminology that makes my head spin. Not the case with this story, it was simple yet engaging.

I’ve never read Eden Ashe before but since I had such a good time with Ever Mine, I’m going to keep an eye out for more fun, passionate stories from this author.

Now that my nerdiness is out of the way, hi. I am Eden. I believe dragons have gotten a bad rep through time, and I am determined to re-write their history. They are the ancient warriors in tarnished armor. They are the hunted guardians long since abandoned by the goddess who created them. They are the majestic warriors with slightly warped senses of humor who not only deserve the girl in the end, but will fight forever for her.
