Once upon a time, that’s how most of these stories start. But this isn’t one of those stories…

When Lena was 16 she saw something that no one believed she saw. And for the last 10 years she has lived in perpetual fear of the monster who set his sights on her.

On the outskirts of the city, she lives in a cabin with her daughter Solene who is kidnapped one night by the very creature Lena has been hiding from. Desperate to follow him through the portal the creature takes Solenn through, she is only able to go with the help of a Faery man named Aviur.

They enter Aithar Gloine: the place beyond the glass, where she meets Prince Dagon and both men vow to help her find her daughter. But they also want to figure out what makes Lena so special in their realm.

With their help, Lena learns things about herself that will forever change the world she lives in. She also finds herself caught up in a whirlwind of emotions anchored to the two men who are helping her. It splits her heart and desires between the two. Her humanity wants her to choose one over the other; but does she have to? Things are different in Aithar Gloine, and as much of an outsider as she is… Lena has the heart of a Faery.

Get whisked away to another world in this magical retelling of the classic Fairy Tale Rumplestilskin.




This is a re-telling of Rumpelstiltskin, but a beautiful story nonetheless. Lena was a witness to a horrific event when she was younger but no one believed her about it. She later has a child but due to her paranoia she lives in constant fear. She has isolated herself and her daughter. One day her nightmares come true and her child is taken through the mirror. She gets help from a fae and she enters their realm. As she is learning about this other realm she finds things out about herself and the two men that are helping her. She uncovers many secrets but with these bring many more questions. She is falling for these two men but she also needs to find her daughter. The twist at the end really makes the story fall into place. The story overall is great but I found myself trying, too hard at times, to remember all the different types of magical beings that were being introduced into the story. I’m a sucker for Fairy Tales and this is another great one!

I’m fairly confident that I came out of womb reading the book. I’ve always loved stories in whatever medium they come. Books, movies, television shows… It didn’t matter. I didn’t discriminate (I still don’t!). It was only a natural progression that I become a writer myself.

I’ve been telling stories for as long as I’ve been reading. Even if it was just standing in front of my family acting out dramatic retellings of my day or making up stories of my own it didn’t matter. It was only a matter of time until I branched out into being a real writer and sharing my stories with friends and strangers alike. And you know what? It’s the best job in the world.

I write dirty, sexy stories about humans & their supernatural lovers. I grew up dreaming of being a Greek Goddess, not a Princess, so I wrote a book about it. In my Grace of Gods series normal humans find out they possess the souls of Greek Gods within them. They are whisked out of their lives and brought to Mount Olympus, thrust into the new and dramatic lives of their Gods.
