She’s always been a dutiful daughter…
Janet MacLeod has spent the last ten years dedicated to her clan, acting as the Lady of the castle—at the cost of her own happiness.
She aches every time she looks at her brothers, both happy with their wives, and wants nothing more than a love of her own.
He’s a broken soldier…
Xander, a former Fae Warrior, sacrificed his wings and magic to live in the Human
Realm and became a traitor to his people.
When he finds Janet forlorn on the beach, Xander gives her a ring he’s had since childhood, not realizing it’ll reveal her as his fated mate.
The ring’s magic activates the Faery Stones, and Janet is sucked into the Fae Realm. Her life is in immediate danger, for the Fae sense—and seek to destroy—any human who dares step into their world.
Xander is the only one who can retrieve her, but he too, wears a target.
Can he rescue his soul-mate and return with her to the Human Realm or will temptation of great magic and the rebirth of his wings force him to abandon their destiny? Duncan promises to help Claire get home, even though his desire to have her wars with his vow.
Torn between familiarity of the present and what she wants in the past, can Claire help Duncan find his brother and get back to the future? Will she even want to?
I have to admit that I think I have a major crush on C.A. Czarek. I bought THE FAE RING the moment it went live and did not even wait until the tour started to read it. THE FAE RING is the second book in the Highland Secrets Series but is a standalone. Czarek explains all you need to know from the first book in the series, THE TARTAN MP3 PLAYER, as needed. I really enjoyed THE FAE RING.
So I am really not a paranormal, fairy, fantasy kind of gal. I really try to avoid the fantasy genre because normally I do not understand most of it but Czarek makes it enjoyable and really at this point I will read anything she puts in front of me. Janet and Xander’s love begins as a magical connection but moves from magic and make believe to something that is true and real. Czarek makes me forget that I am reading about an unreal world and makes it so believable and real.
Janet is the little sister that stepped up to take care of her brothers, father and homestead after her mother died. She now does not really know her place since both of her brothers have found their true loves. Xander is trying to find his “home” in the human realm and finds it with Janet. However, lots happens and well, you just have to read it.
The FAE RING is well written, a couple of steamy scenes and lots of fighting and drama. A definite read that I will always recommend.
THE FAE RING by C. A. Czarek receives 4 out if 5 Platypires!!!
