Description

"Must read YA paranormal romance!" - USA Today Seventeen-year-old Bryar Rose has a problem. She's descended from one of the three magical races--shifters, fairies, or witches. That makes her one of the Magicorum, and Magicorum always follow a fairy tale life template. In Bryar's case, that template should be Sleeping Beauty. Should being the key word. Trouble is, Bryar is nowhere near the sleeping beauty life template. Not even close. She doesn't like birds or woodland creatures. She can't sing. And she certainly can't stand Prince Philpot, the so-called "His Highness of Hedge Funds" that her aunties want her to marry. Even worse, Bryar's having recurring dreams of a bad boy hottie and is obsessed with finding papyri from ancient Egypt. What's up with that? "Exciting and well-conceived" - Kirkus All Bryar wants is to attend a regular high school with normal humans and forget all about shifters, fairies, witches, and the curse that Colonel Mallory the Magnificent placed on her. And she might be able to do just that--if only she can just keep her head down until her eighteenth birthday when the spell that's ruined her life goes buh-bye. But that plan gets turned upside down when Bryar Rose meets Knox, the bad boy who's literally from her dreams. Knox is a powerful werewolf, and his presence in her life changes everything, and not just because he makes her knees turn into Jell-O. If Bryar can't figure out who--or what--she really is, it might cost both her and Knox their lives... as well as jeopardize the very nature of magic itself. "A fun romp for Twilight fans."- School Library Journal. Perfect for readers who love young adult books, contemporary fantasy, fairy tales, satire/comedy, paranormal romance, gamma guys, fairies, magic users, shapeshifters, and coming of age stories.

About Christina Bauer

Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too. Christina lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby. She loves to connect with her fans at BauersBooks.com. Plus, you can get a FREE copy of Christina's novella, BEVERLY HILLS VAMPIRE, when you sign up for her personal newsletter: https: //tinyurl.com/bauersbooks ***Not available in stores*** Christina is the author of the bestselling Angelbound series about Heaven, Hell and Purgatory, and the angels, demons, dragons, ghouls and humans that call them home; the Beholder series, about a medieval farm girl turned necromancer who needs to save the world; the Fairy Tales of the Magicorum, which takes place in a world like our own but where fairies, shifters and wizards are real; and Dimension Drift, where one sassy teenage girl-slash-scientist plots to save the future from its dystopian fate.
