Anthology: The Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance
Story: 19 of 24
Romance Featured: Fae
Opening Line: “Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there lived a princess in a tiny kingdom known as Elvania.”
Until I read this story (the 19th), I hadn’t realized what had been missing from the collection – a humour piece. As you can see from the opening line it is very much of the fairy tale variety – in fact along the lines of The Princess Bride style humour, only not quite as twisted.
Put together a spoiled princess and her snarky servant/best friend, a fae prince, a hunky guardsman and a big treaty conference at the kings’ castle attended by too many elves and you have the necessary ingredients for some situation comedy. Everyone gets their HEA and we get a few laughs. Light on the romance but a fun read.
