When Nate Hawthorne meets Asher Dane, the huge, tattooed hunk is the personification of Nate’s dreams. But Nate knows there’s no future, because Asher is also the personification of his beloved five-year-old daughter Delly’s nightmares. She’s frightened of big men. Things turn around for both of them, however, when Delly goes Christmas shopping at the Fairy Shop and begins her quest for a wand that will make her brave. Neither of them guesses that the Fairy Shop will be the source of far more than Delly’s courage. On Christmas Eve, under the influence of a very unusual fairy, Nate’s life will change forever.


I’m in love—Asher Dane is the most impossibly sweet character I have read about in quite a while. The story, Tara Lain’s The Fairy Shop, is part of the annual Dreamspinner Advent calendar and it is a huge hit with me. Nate has brought his five year old daughter, who has been witness to her mother’s drunken boyfriend and his raging anger, to live with him. Little Delly is the product of a fumbling drunken one off between a younger Nate and his then girlfriend. A rushed marriage, quickly followed by a divorce left Delly in her mom’s hands but her poor choice in companions along with her own drinking made the decision to gain custody an easy one for Nate. Unfortunately it also meant the kind of guys who normally rang Nate’s bell (huge hunky types) terrorized his daughter. Of course that hardly happened as Nate didn’t feel comfortable leaving Delly with a sitter since her nightmares were still a near nightly occurrence.

Enter Asher Dane. A magical mountain of a man who not only liked kids but hid a marvelous secret that explained why. As things heat up between Nate and Asher the idea of putting his own needs above Delly’s stops the whole relationship from going forward. Then a visit to a tiny place called the fairy shop changes everything. This was such a lovely short story. The Fairy Shop is just the ticket for some holiday happiness and features some really marvelous characters and lots of hope for happy ever afters and new beginnings for more than just Nate and Asher. I really loved this one and highly recommend it to you.
