Practical Uses for Princes With Pointed Ears
Otherworld Realms #1
Genre: Paranormal Fantasy
Lillian Chambers was just an ordinary high school teacher, until she fell through a Fairy Circle. When she came to on the other side, she was surprised to find herself in the company of an Elven prince she thought only existed in her dreams. Now she’s slaying monsters and rescuing Prince Tallyn, instead of playing the part of the damsel in distress.Tallyn had been the protector of his kingdom for over one hundred years. He knows that the world is filled with danger around every corner, but these days he’s finding himself babysitting the annoyingly fearless Lady Lillian.When their worlds collide sparks fly, humorous situations ensue and the only thing for sure is that neither will ever be the same. Practical Uses for Princes with Pointed Ears takes readers on an adventure into a modern fairytale where we explore what it really means to fall for Prince Not-so-Charming.
This book has been on my mind ever since I saw a book blast for it in one of those blog tours. The title sure did catch my attention. What are the practical uses for princes with pointed ears? I mean, Lillian was a scholar, a teacher, and a woman who knows how to handle a sword. She did save the prince, saved herself twice (or was it thrice) and killed a feared creature all on her own. As I Fairwynn said, "a lesser man would feel more than a little threatened". Thankfully, Tallyn was a good man.
And I thank the stars that there was not so much drama here that's the norm for most stories with characters who had backgrounds like theirs and a fae world rife with politics that would put the most notorious human government to shame. I sometimes could not stomach drama for drama's sake.
As to the practical uses for elven princes, they tend to give really good back rubs.
