Fascinated - Marissa Day 3.5 Stars

Who isn’t fascinated by the Fae. The legends tell of frightening beautiful people with strong magic. As with everything in life there must be a balance, so what could have been the balance to these powerful beings? Day has created a wonderful mix of paranormal, historical, and romance in answer to that.

Alicia has been under a spell, sort of fairy tale like already isn’t it. Her very self has been hidden deep in the mist until she meets Edward and is freed. Edward is no average gentleman but a catalyst, making him even more perfect for Alicia than if he were just a sensual man intent on pleasing her. Like any fairy tale you have the young woman in danger, and an evil villain.

The villain here is a White Knight, who would have thought to put that together. The perfect White Knight with the enchanted home and the ability to make you forever young and perfect. A difficult thing to turn your back on. But if your heart has already been claimed you can’t give it, and Alicia’s heart belongs only to Edward.

Day brings a fresh take on the Fae and magic. The families that posses magic have learned to hide it, resulting in harming themselves and their children. The last quarter of Fascinated is incredibly steamy and is full of action, you will be at the end before you know it. A very enjoyable book, and a great paranormal historical romance.
