    Reviewed on Hearts On Fire... http://heartsonfirereviews.com/ This was a sweet, comical story from an author who I've never read before. Marcus is the son of a poor family but on his eighteenth birthday is visited by a fairy and given a gift. It is his heritage. Expecting some terrific gift, Marcus is shocked when the fairy, Draeden, gives the shy, inexperienced young man the gift of seduction. He tries his gift out on a young guy in his village that he has been lusting for but feels disgusted after compelling the guy to kiss him. Marcus's parents are contacted by a scamming mediocre wizard named Dante who tells them that Marcus has magical abilities and that for a small fee Dante will take Marcus to the capital where he'll be trained and work for the king. Marcus takes an instant dislike to Dante but has to travel with him to the capital though Marcus does learn some real magic along the way. Just inside the capital the cart that they are in gets into an accident and Marcus is thrown from the cart only to come to in the hands of slavers. He uses his power this time without hesitation and escapes. Homeless and injured, Marcus is given a job as a servant in a well to do brothel. He writes letters home and to Dante asking for help but gets nowhere so the young man goes to the castle to talk to Dante where he finds that his family was scammed and Dante sold him to the slavers. Marcus goes back to the brothel where he meets Hale/Hailey who turns out to be a male prostitute who needs to play the part of a woman at times as men servicing men is illegal. The two men form a bond and soon Marcus is earning money by giving women mind blowing orgasms using his gift while never touching them. He soon becomes all the rage with married women and is second only to Hale in earnings. The story ends on a high note with a great HEA. I really enjoyed the way this story flowed and the brothel antics had me chuckling. Dreaden pops in and out of the story and finally gets Marcus laid. All of the characters are well drawn and most are extremely likable. The dialog was a little stiff but this seems to be Ms Pendragon's first book and it is set in provincial times. This was a very satisfying gay romance with a comic twist, give it a try.

    Rating: 4.25 starsEvery third generation, on the eve of the 18th birthday, a child receives a gift from the Fairies. What that gift may be, no one knows. It was said that Marcus' family's fortunes arose with his great grandfather's gift. But times have gotten hard and now the family depends upon Marcus and the gift he is to receive now that he is turning 18.But Marcus is different. He loves his village of Rell and his family and he wants to get closer to the woodman's boy Adam. Marcus is attracted to men not women, a fact he hides from all around him. He certainly doesn't want a Fairy gift that will change his life and all he knows. On his birthday, Marcus hides in his room, hoping no one will find him. Alas the fairy Draeden appears, and despite Marcus' protests, gives him the gift of seduction. What is a virgin to do with that?I had a quibble with this story right off the bat. Such a lovely fairy tale should start as all fairy tales do. Once upon a time in the village of Rell, there lived a boy named Marcus. For The Fairy Gift is truly a fairy tale for adults, following the same strictures and guidelines all such stories do. Draeden is the fairy godmother (a title such a wry and fey creature would love) who pops in and out of Marcus' life, bringing both meaning and frustration to a boy trying to find his way through the kingdom and into the path of happily ever after.The King's Wizard comes to collect Marcus and take him to the capital as an apprentice, but things go awry as Marcus is kidnapped and sold as a sex slave. What? This didn't happen in your fairy tales? Well, no matter, Marcus has a gift, the smarts to use it, plus Draeden to look after him and give him a shove in the right direction. Let's just say wonderful antics ensue along the goal to happiness, all choreographed with a lovely light touch by the author.Pendragon has populated this story with all the wonderful characters we have come to expect. There is an evil sorcerer, a good queen, good townsfolk, and of course, true love waiting in the wings, or in this case a house of prostitution run by a Madam named Titania. Same difference. All the characters are wonderfully nuanced, adding to the storybook feel while never losing sight that this is a slightly updated and slightly bent version of the same. And there is even a kind of princess masquerading as a high priced prostitute with a surprise up her skirt. And there are obstacles, and a truth that Marcus must discover on his own. But as this is a fairytale, it will come as no surprise that there is a happily ever after. And that is how I will end this review of a story I really enjoyed. And they lived happily ever after. Sigh.Reviewed for Joyfully Jay. First posted there and on my blog.Cover: Simple yet elegant. I would have liked to have seen a more traditional storybook cover but still this is nice.

    Review posted on World of Diversity FictionsThis is the second book that I have read from this author and even though the first didn’t blow me away I knew there was something there and I also knew I needed to read more from her.I really liked this fantasy that is actually a fairytale. I thought all of the stories characters (with one exception) were great and they made this an enjoyable read. The MC Marcus was definitely my favorite. At the beginning he was quiet and shy, a little insecure and so very sweet. Draeden is a fairy that comes to Marcus on his 18th birthday and gives him the gift of seduction which I thought was hilarious considering Marcus is a virgin and has no idea what to do with it, he gives it a try but the result ends up to be not so great. After Marcus receives his gift from Draeden, his parents send him with Dante, the King’s Wizard, thinking he is being taken to the castle to be Dante’s apprentice but Dante has other ideas and so begins Marcus’s adventure. From being kidnapped to be sold as a sex slave, escaping then ending up in a brothel, to finding out what Dante is really up too then trying to make things right, I loved watching Marcus grow and become a secure, able young man with the help of his fairy Draeden who is always watching but comes and goes on a whim.This is a fast simple read with characters and places described in a way that I could visualize in my head, I loved that. The story moves at a good pace with a twist in there that may catch you by surprise then have you chuckling and some very amusing moments when Marcus is at the Brothel that had me laughing. Like all good fairytales there is a Happily Ever After but whose Happily Ever After I won’t say, for that you will just have to read the book. ;-)

    Interesting story. I think it needed more romance to be really great. A little more buildup, sexual tension and getting to know each other and all that stuff...To be honest I really loved the Fairy and wanted more of him. If the author is reading this... PLEASE write a sequel with the Seduction Fairy *puppy eyes*

    This book really seemed like a bad fanfiction to me. Sorry.

    This is a lovely tale, told in fairy-tale style.I really liked the main characters, in fact all the characters were well rounded and easy to get to know; the writer has described them well. I also felt the place descriptions were very well done too. In deference to the genre and a book with 'Fairy' in its title, the brothel seems un-sleazy and without any major angst or nastiness behind closed doors, but you expect that in the genre and as I said it's all very well described. I could almost taste the gruel!The twist in the tale was nice too :)Now I have to haunt the author!The cover was okay; nothing to write home about, while the editing and production of the ebook seemed good.

    The plot felt flimsy in places and a little all over the place in others, but perhaps that was because it seemed (in the end) more like a character-driven story to me, and the good thing is, I liked Marcus as a character and enjoyed his development, so in that aspect, I'd say it was a success! I wanted a little more from the conflict, but the closure I got from the wrap up of the plot left me satisfied. It was a story that I thought about even after I had put it down, and I was eager to come back to it and continue reading. It's a nice light summer read - I recommend it!

    The cover. It is weird. But the story. It is good.I really enjoyed this. It's fantasy and light and sweet, but Marcus isn't a complete doormat or useless ingenue. And boy, does he undergo a hero's journey. My one complaint is the secondary characters seem rather underdeveloped at times, but not horribly so. It could just be that I either wasn't paying attention or had different expectations, which changed the way I viewed them.

    A good read but nothing really exciting happens to make it stand out in my mind. The tale was amusing and there was a lot of stuff happening to Marcus on his journey to finding a use for his particular gift and trying to get a meeting with the King. The twist with Hailey did come as a bit of a surprise and got my hopes up for the rest of the story.

    The first 40 pages were a bit too slow paced, while the last 20 pages too fast. Still, I loved the book a lot and I really am a sucker for happy endings. It was also great to read about medieval fantasy setting. I wish this story had a sequel(or maybe even a companion piece of someone else in the same setting).

    It could have been so much better. I honestly felt that the author put so much effort into the beginning and the build up only to get lazy or too eager for the happy ending, leaving the climax to fall flat. I am really disappointed.

    I had trouble finishing this one, therefore two stars. It was somewhat simple plotwise, with lackluster characters. I expected more adventure from the blurb, which maybe the reason I ended so dissapointed.

    the plot is nice but i was disappointed because i expected much more from the story base on what I've read from the blurb. so when I'm half way through the story and nothing dangerous or intriguing happened, reading this became a chore.

    There's nothing amazing about this book, but it's a short read with a happy ending, and an enticing blend of fantasy and romance. There was very little sex, which is nothing short of funny considering the bulk of the book took place in a brothel, and the few sex scenes were mild at best.

    What a waste of potential. A great premise, interesting characters, plenty of sexual tension between the main characters but nothing actually happened. Blah! That's really frustrating.

    This story reminds me so much of some of the original fiction I used to read when I was younger. It was really silly, over-the-top, and weird. That being said it was still really fun to read.

    It wasn't really what I was expecting it would be, but was good nonetheless. The main character goes through the zero-to-hero trope in a subtle build. The romance was snarky and cute. Pretty good.
