Lots of girls play Fairy Princess when they're little. Megan O'Reilly had no idea the real thing was like playing chess, guitar, and hockey all at once. Megan had known for a long time that she wasn't an entirely typical girl. But living with ADHD—and her mother's obsessions—was a very different thing from finding out she wasn't entirely human. Somewhere out there, in a completely different world, her father needs help. There's a conflict, revolving around Faerie seasonal rituals, that could have consequences for humanity—and if Megan's getting the terminology straight, it sounds like her family aren't even supposed to be the good guys. As she's further and further swept up in trying to save her father, Megan may be getting too good at not being human.

~ Staking Her Claim… ~ Book One in the Patricks' Brothers series ~ Alysia and Rob's story ~ Growing up with seven brothers, Alysia Patricks’ had always been considered ‘one of the boys’, which was fine with her. Or at least it was until she met one, Robert Leighton. Robert was a gorgeous, yet emotionally scarred boy who stole her heart at the age of twelve before he’d even uttered a ‘hello’.

But regardless of his devastation at the loss of his best friend, he knew two things to be true. One, Alysia was too good, too pure, and too important to let his demons darken her world. And two, he didn’t intend on sticking around longer than he absolutely had to when he aged out of the foster system. Both of these reasons only served to make it blindingly clear that it was better to let her go sooner rather than later. Especially seeing as his heart, and hers were already becoming too involved. Fifteen years later by a twist of fate, Alysia comes to Robert’s rescue, and for the first time in years Robert can finally breathe again. For over a decade, he had been merely existing, making it from one day to the next.

But as horrific memories of his childhood surface, Robert’s attention is divided between unravelling a mystery and keeping his past hidden, leaving him with an impossible choice…Fight or flight. The line between what he wants and who he needs unclear, it’s left up to fate to decide whether, Robert should cut and run, or if he’s finally ready to accept Alysia’s challenge to stay and fight. Because one this is certain; Alysia has already staked her claim and Robert’s time is fast running out.
