I met Constance at my very first MVRWA meeting, and she made me feel right at home. Soon, we were meeting for coffee and writing every week. Back then we actually worked on our books when we met. And she wrote the bulk of Fairyproof during that time. (I loved that season of our friendship, Connie!) Those months of writing and chatting, just her and I, will always be dear to my heart.
Anyway, I'm SO proud of Constance. Let's grab some festive food and get started!
Constance loves ice cream--really, who doesn't?--so we couldn't have a party without it.

Okay, are you settled in? Let's talk about Fairyproof!!
Fairyproof ~ When Monique finds out her brother, Kieran, is planning her future with the one fairy she wants nothing to do with, she seeks refuge in the human world. Now Kieran fears she will be the next victim in a string of murdered fairies and is determined to bring her home.
Hiding should be a breeze. She can control any human with a flirtatious smile and an attraction spell. Until, meets Daniel Elliot, the only human who’s immune to both.
A year ago, Daniel’s fiancée disappeared with the engagement ring, an Elliot family heirloom. He’s ready to move forward with his life, but his mother’s obsession with retrieving the ring makes that impossible. Then Monique walks into his office to apply for a job.
Daniel and Monique can’t deny their attraction, but will the reason he’s Fairyproof be too much to overcome?
***I LOVED this book!! Here's my review of Fairyproof!
(I received an advanced reader copy of Fairyproof with no obligation to review it. All opinions are my own.)
Fairyproof opens with a clever concept--what happens when a fairy meets a human who doesn't yield to her charms?--and quickly evolves to a fast-paced, tension-filled story of a woman with everything to lose who risks her very way of life to be with the man she loves.
Ms. Phillips did an amazing job of keeping me on edge with the creative story twists, her world-building capabilities, and her talent of wrapping all of the elements around the tight cord of the burgeoning love between Daniel and Monique.
The first half captured me; the last half left me panting for more! I hope Fairyproof becomes a series because I didn't want to leave any of these characters behind!
Have I convinced you? If not, this trailer will!!
When she’s not writing about fairies, shifters, vamps, and guardian angels, she’s working side-by-side with her husband in their hardwood flooring business.
She’s actively involved in her local Romance Writers of America chapter (MVRWA), and the Southeast Michigan chapter of the United States Pony Club (which her son is also very active in). When not writing or enjoying the outdoors, she loves reality television or can be found at a Rick Springfield concert (just look for the pink Converse high tops).
