Tansy has a degree in anthropology, Comparative Folklore to be precise. It’s probably one of the worst degrees you can get when it comes to job availability, but lucky for Tansy the fairy folk, or Them There as it’s better to call them, came back from wherever they had disappeared to and Tansy suddenly had a hush hush job with the government and money to live on. It’s on a job for the Home Office that she meets Edmund. He is the catalyst that sends her down a path that will change her whole life. But is it a change for the better? Or worse?
This book is one word…Wow! In Tansy’s quest to cure her curse she is made to experience shame and humiliation beyond compare. However, shame and humiliation just happen to be her particular sexual kink. Her cousin Gail and Gail’s boyfriend Vince get a front row seat to the effects of Tansy’s curse and first hand experience of Them There when they decide to go with Tansy on her quest. Tansy’s extensive knowledge of The Good Folk saves them several times, but it doesn’t leave them unchanged. Oh no, no one can interact with Them There and come out unchanged. Who knew the fairy folk were so kinky and sexually charged? Oops…I said fairy folk. *looks around* Good thing they didn’t hear it.
From the beginning I was drawn into the story and couldn’t wait to see what would happen next to Tansy. The sexual situations she experiences are quite inventive. And prolific. Humiliation is not my particular sexual kink which is why the book gets a 4.5 from me, but the writing is out of this world and the characters are well-fleshed. *cough* So to speak. I’ve always loved stories involving the fairy folk, so that is a big bonus. The ending was a bit surprising, but it fits. If you’re daring you could read this in public, especially since the paperback has lovely, lovely illustrations, but I would recommend reading it at home. If you know what I mean. *wink wink nudge nudge* All-in-all an excellent arousing read.
