After years of absence from his native Japan, Ario has been tracked down by his grandfather demanding that he return home. However, Ario is determined to never set foot in Japan again. Ario enjoys his secluded new home in Ireland. Venturing into the woods, Ario gets hit with pixie’s dust, enchanting then leading Ario to a sleeping Cailte, an irresistible red-headed Fae warrior. Almost immediately, a mutual love begins to flourish.

How Not to Date a Fae is an intriguing romance interwoven with humor, magic and conflict. The storyline implies sexual activities are considered to have the same power as a religious experience in some cultures. The characters are believable. Ario is a strong sensual man, whose only wish is to break the family ties that bind him. Making love with Cailte, Ario experiences a sense of freedom for the first time in his life. Cailte is a compassionate honorable warrior. Learning about the chaos, as well as the lack of honor in this modern world, Cailte is ready to return to the sleep cave. The love he feels for Ario convinces Cailte it is his destiny to protect his lover. Stephanie Burke has created a fantastic saga that I greatly enjoyed.
