Faeries Gone Wild by MaryJanice Davidson, Michele Hauf, Lois Greiman, Leandra Logan

Faeries Gone WildFaeries Gone Wild by MaryJanice Davidson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

“Tall, Dark and Not So Faery”

Scarlett is not your typical pint-sized faery. At six feet, four inches tall, she’s an unlikely candidate for a match made in heaven. But when she ventures to Cannon Falls, Minnesota, on royal orders to survey its extraordinary residents, she stumbles upon the one man who just may measure up to size…

“Pixie Lust”

William Timber is a cutthroat developer who refuses to let a few trees come between him and his next million. But when Avalina—a sparkling faery charged to protect all things green—comes to town, William is forced to choose between life as he knows it and the unknown reaches of his heart.

“Dust Me, Baby, One More Time”

A librarian by day and a tooth faery by night, Sidney has absolutely no time to find Mr. Right. Until she flies smack dab into sexy, sun-bronzed Dart Sand, a man who makes her wings a-flutter…and whose allure could get her banished from the Mortal Realm.

“A Little Bit Faery”

Tia is mystified when she strikes out on the Luna faery singles scene, in spite of her hourglass curves and vivacious charm. Then she takes off for Manhattan and lands on the doorstep of a steamy firefighter who sets her soul on fire—and shares a strong connection to her secret past.

Overall a fun read. Loved the first story by MJD, but then I had just read her story in 'No Rest for the Witches' that was about these same characters. I absolutely adored the characters and really hope to see much more of them. They would make a fabulous new series!!

I really did not like Lois Greiman's story. The male character was so 'besotted' by his fairy lover that he was a bumbling idiot for the entire story.

The story by Michele Hauf was fun. The tale of two night working faeries, a tooth fairy and a sandman, who meet and pursue each other. The sandman has a premature 'dusting' problem that sets up the fun story line that makes this story such a fun read.

The last story by Leandra Logan was a bit different. It is hard to explain but it was a very 'intelligently' written story. Typically with these short stories about Faery you expect a lot of fluff, but this one was written a lot differently. At times it almost seemed strange, but overall, for me, it made for a very interesting story line and good read. I might look up more by this author just to see what else she has written.
