When Fairy Godmother Marlena gets in trouble for including a hot sex additive to her Happily Ever After Fairy Dust, her bosses decide she's lost touch with their mission. They announce she will become various fairy tale characters until she understands that fairy tales are about overcoming obstacles to find true love -- and not about hot, wild, break the headboard sex.
Marlena tries to follow the rules, but brief episodes with the Troll from Rumpelstiltskin and Snow White's Handsome Prince reveal just how powerful her Fairy Dust really is. Who knew the Troll would grow so large in such interesting places? Or that the Prince had a spanking fetish?
And when she finds herself dressed as Little Red Riding Hood and trapped between the Wolf and the Huntsman...well, what's a girl to do? Find her own Happily Ever After, of course.

Excerpt from Fairy Dust by Tielle St. Clare
The sharp call made her head snap back.
Damn, she thought, liking the way the word sounded in her head. She didn't swear very often--no one did in Fairy Tale Land--but she'd spent a fair amount of time recently using her Looking Glass to peek in on the Real World and found some of the expressions used by actual people quite freeing. Fairy Tale Characters were designed not to think in those terms.
Pasting a pleasant smile on her face, Marlena turned and greeted her supervisor. Her brightness didn't penetrate the dark glower that hovered over his face. The smooth bald head only served to emphasize the harsh glare in his eyes.
"Martin. How are you?" she asked cheerfully.
Only he didn't sound fine. He sounded irritated. And he looked irritated. The tight squint of his eyes and crinkled line of his lips warned that he was a long way from fine. Marvin, Martin's assistant, stood beside his boss, looking almost as serious though a little less annoyed. Whatever had called Martin here, it wasn't good. She clicked through her recent fairy tales and no, she hadn't messed any of them up. They'd all ended as expected. Happily Ever After. Some of them were very happy thanks to her new dust.
But something had to be wrong. She never saw Martin unless something was wrong.
"Marlena, we need to talk."
"About your HEA Fairy Dust."
"Oh." Marlena stood up to her full height and smiled, pride and pleasure filling her chest. "I've been working on my formula. Tweaking it a bit."
Two simple words and she could tell he wasn't pleased with her changes.
"Is something wrong?"
Martin stepped forward and peered down into the Looking Glass. With a shudder, he returned his gaze to Marlena. "We're here to ensure a Happily Ever After."
Marlena glanced at the couple in the glass and shrugged. "Don't they look happy?"
Marvin crowded his way forward and took a peek as well. "He looks ecstatic."
