I picked this to read basically for the story by MaryJanice Davidson. Turns out, for me, hers was by far the weakest of the four stories here. "Tall Dark and Not So Fairy" seemed like she wrote it in her sleep..or halfway drunk. My favorite story was "Dust Me, Baby, One More Time" by Michele Hauf about the Tooth Fairy and the Sand Man. I loved it. Funny and cheeky romance. "Pixie Lust" by Lois Greiman was confusing. Her fairy began as intelligent and just turned into a sexbot basically for the land developer who finds her. Last was "A Little Bit Faery" by Leandra Logan. Half fairy goes to find love in the mortal world and her mortal father. A little bit of a mystery wound into the fantasy. Not completely satisfying but as a short story I liked it. ( )

This anthology has 4 separate stories ....
- Tall, Dark and Not So Faery by Mary Janice Davidson
A look at what would happen if a vampire, werewolf, talking SUV, dryad (tree creature) and a faery prince all live together and the faery census taker shows up to count everyone. Then there is the half-giant that talks to the SUV even though the SUV has a crush on the werewolf.
*** Yeah, a little confusing, lots of funny one liners and the concept of the story is hilarious but as a short story in an anthology, it just doesn’t really have the time to create enough of the story to make it all that enjoyable.

- Pixie Lust by Lois Greiman
All she wanted was to find her a fern that the faery people needed, but taking a nap in a flower, she found herself in the bathroom, naked. After struggling to point his life in the direction he wanted, he was not going to let this young lady derail him. Finding her uncooperative to communicate with made it difficult to get her back to where she belongs, until they found each other.
*** Short and quick, again the novella size makes it all happen so fast that it is not easy to get involved in the story or the characters. I liked them all, I just wish it could have lasted longer. There is so much left to questions and assumptions, the story that is there is so rushed that it loses the flow and continuity several times.

- Dust Me, Baby, One More Time by Michele Hauf
As a tooth faerie, the worst news to get is that the mothers in town are banding together to make sure no one believes in you anymore. Then to literally run in to a sandman and get dusted by him leaving you unconscious on the floor was not a great way to end the day. Whether she liked it or not, the sandman was going to help her find out how to save the job she loved in a town she had been a part of for so long.
*** What a cute interpretation of the combined fairy tales. The character interaction was great and the admitted problems of sandman were both funny and endearing at the same time. This is a quick burst of energy that made me laugh and still had a slightly sentimental story to go along with the adult humor.

- A Little Bit Faery by Leandra Logan
Struggling to find a faery mate was difficult enough, but then being told that she was half human, of all things, explained quite a bit. Traveling from the Isle of Man to the Isle of Manhattan, this faery had her human fathers name and not much else, but she was determined to find a father and see if his world would except her better than her mothers world ever did. Finding a reluctant hero who treated her better than anyone else ever had was a great start, the question was “would she push him away also”.
**** Best of the short stories of this anthology. Strange and fun characters, their interactions was light hearted yet urgent in their own particular cause. I liked the hero complex and the hero worship. There are so many dimensions to this particular story (love, lust, acceptance, betrayal, confidence, fear, ect) that it is amazing that it all fit into such a short story. ( )

This is an anthology of four romance stories, each with fairy protagonists.

“Tall, Dark and Not So Faery” by MaryJanice Davidson – D

Scarlet is obsessed with counting and categorising things and is six feet and four inches – so is not what most people think of when thinking of fairies. She has been sent on a mission by the fairy king and she is looking for Lent aka the Violent Fairy. She gets to meet a cast of strange characters, including an enchanted car and a part giant. All in this entire story didn’t make much sense, was a bit silly and very, very odd.

"Pixie Lust" by Lois Greiman – C

Avalina is a pixie on a mission to find a very special fern in the land of mortals. As it is evening when she arrives she pops into a flower to have her sleep. The flower is picked by William and taken to give his fiancé. This act of his will change both of their lives in ways neither expected. For a start he has to explain to his angry fiancé why there is a naked young woman in his bathroom next to some picked flowers. A very lusty story – hence the title I suppose – with the two central characters becoming very sexually obsessed with each other in an instant. William has to get in touch with his hippy childhood to obtain his happy ending.

"Dust Me, Baby, One More Time" by Michele Hauf – B

Sydney is leading a double life – librarian by day and tooth fairy by night. Life is good, but a tad boring. All that changes one night. A rabid mother’s group decided to ban belief in the tooth fairy and Sydney bumps, literally into the sandman. The sandman is a hot little number, and easy on the eye, but he suffers from the problem of premature – er – dusting. He gets so excited that he sprinkles his dust and sends his lady of the moment to sleep. The two decide to help each other. This story was so silly that I loved it

"A Little Bit Faery" by Leandra Logan – DNF

Just couldn’t get into this at all. Tia just can’t seem to fit into fairy world – she finds out her father was mortal so sets out to New York to find him. She bumps into a fireman who is recovering from injury – no idea what happens as I did not finish (DNF)

Generally in all four of the stories there are just no depth to the characters. I know they are only short stories but I still expect to get a feel for the characters. These fairy stories are for adult only – no fairy from my childhood acted like these. I think it they are fairies they are sweet and innocent – change the name to faery and they become x-rated creatures. ( )

"Tall, Dark and Not So Faery" MaryJanice Davidson
Scarlett is on a mission. A very important mission. A mission from the King, and she will let no one stand in her way. Unfortunately for Scarlett it is not a person that is hindering her, but a large, heavy, wooden door that is constantly closing in her face. If she can just get through that door, Scarlett would discover a strange and odd mix of individuals, she would make new friends, find old family and quite possibly fall in love... But only if she can get through the front door first.

"Pixie Lust" Lois Greiman
Avalina has entered the Mortal world for one reason only, to search for a rare plant, a Fern. But this is no ordinary Fern, at least not to a Fay, for it is believed to hold medicinal properties, and Avalina, being a Fern Fay, is determined to find it. What she didn't count on was finding William. Only the fickle and decadent flower faeries entered the Mortal world to consort with men. So why then all of a sudden is Avalina acting just like the silly flower faeries she has so little respect for, and is being with William really worth all the trouble?

"Dust Me, Baby, One More Time" Michele Hauf
Sidney may be leading a double life, but both lives are as straight-laced as you can get. By day she is Sidney Tooth, librarian and Reverie local, keeping very much to herself. By night she is the Tooth Faery, silently entering homes and exchanging teeth for coins. Nothing can upset Sidney's work routine, nothing that is except Dart. Sidney may not have time to sleep, but is she willing to make time for Dart Sand, the Sandman?

"A Little Bit Faery" Leandra Logan
Tia Mayberry has never quite fit in to the Enchanted Realm. Everything about her just seems wrong compared to the elegant faeries that call the Enchanted Realm home. So Tia has decided to try her luck in the Mortal Realm, she is leaving the Isle of Man for the Isle of Manhattan. But will her luck be any better among the humans, and will she be able to overcome her secret past to find happiness in the future?

In these four stories you will find naughty tales of pixy lust and adoring fables of faery love. Highly imaginative and vividly romantic, these stories are not for the faint of heart, these are definitely faery-tales for adults only. If you love faeries and love love, you will love this book. ( )

In this adorable anthology, you will find four novellas of fairies in search of romance. They go mildly wild, yes, but sweetly. All of the authors are from Minnesota.

The 4 stories in the collection are:

1. "Tall, Dark, and Not So Faery" by MaryJanice Davidson. Faery princess Scarlett travels to the mortal realm to take a faery census in the home of her brother, the Violent Faery. He's just married a dryad, and they have a new baby. He also shares quarters with a vampire, a werewolf, and an enchanted automobile named Judith. Quite unexpectedly, Scarlett finds a love of her own...Coffee Ray, who happens to have some giant in him.

2. "Pixie Lust" by Lois Greiman. Fern faery Avalina travels to the mortal realm to protect an endangered species of her favorite plant. Accidentally plucked along with a flower while she's in her tiny form, she grows to human size and takes over the life of down-to-earth William. William must learn to rediscover his hippie heritage to rescue the fern, and Avalina.

3. "Dust Me, Baby, One More Time" by Michele Hauf. Sidney is a tooth faery with a boring social life and a liking for Carrie and the girls of Sex and the City. She literally bumps into Dart Sand, a sexy blond surfer-dude sandman, on the job, and there is an instant attraction. There's only one problem: when Dart gets excited, he dusts everything in sight, sending Sidney snoring. Will they be able to overcome his premature dusting problem...and a town full of women urging their children not to believe in the tooth fairy?

4. "A Little Bit Faery" by Leandra Logan. Tia Mayberry is stunned to learn her father is human. She travels to the mortal realm, hoping to meet him...and runs into Alec Simon, a hunky firefighter recovering from being injured in the line of duty. ( )
