Take a trip to the beloved supernatural town of Mystic Bayou in this brilliantly funny new stand-alone novella - written for audio-first!
Charlotte McBee knows she’s in for a challenge when she accepts a job as midwife for a dragon and a phoenix shifter. Being a fairy herself, it isn’t the supernatural world that scares her. It’s the thought of delivering a giant metal dragon’s egg, which has her gritting her teeth in pain for poor Jillian, the anxious mother-to-be.
While preparing for the big event, a handsome town resident catches her eye. Leonard is kind, charming, and a little bit mysterious. He’s also suffering from a highly unusual condition brought on by an ancient fairy curse, and he’s too wary of Charlotte to allow her to get close.
Will love overcome fear before the end of her assignment?
One Fine Fae by Molly Harper is a novella in the Mystic Bayou series and one that I have enjoyed on audio. Narrated by Jonathan Davis and Amanda Ronconi, Harper delivered from humor to romance.
I love Mystic Bayou and the characters there. Harper has created a town and world I would visit again and again. While each audiobook has its own romance, the overall story ARCs and character development have me recommending you listen to them in the order of their release.
Charlotte McBee arrives in Mystic Bayou to help a certain phoenix shifter deliver a metal dragon egg. Oh, boy! Charlotte is used to being mobile, but with the rift and a population growth, they need her skills in Mystic Bayou.
Charlotte is fae, and she can’t help but notice Leonard. He is handsome and kind, but she is wary when she notices he is plagued by an ancient fairy curse.
Gah, this was delightful. I laughed during the birth, and Bael’s over protectiveness. Leonard is such a sweetie, and I enjoyed seeing the relationship build between him and Charlotte.
For being a novella, Harper did a splendid job of pulling me in, moving the story forward and giving me a sweet romance to swoon over.
Jonathan Davis was perfect for Leonard’s POV and captured his personality. Amanda Ronconi is always a welcome favorite and captures Harper’s humor while bringing Charlotte and the other characters to life.
I love the title, but must admit it had me singing One Fine Day by the Chiffons!
Reading this book contributed to these challenges:
Nice review. I’m so glad this one is continuing after the Rift issue was resolved – and wow! so much is changing. I look forward to following this one.
This sounds delightful.

Ugh. I’m totally missing this series and I want to read it at some point. I’m glad to see you rated it well.
I enjoyed this one as well. I love Amanda Ronconi’s narration. She adds so much to the experience I guess you might call it. Molly Harper is great too.
Ah yes it takes a really good author to make a novella seem complete, glad Molly did for you Kim and yes I was already humming One Fine Day as I was reading your post LOL
Did she say egg? Shifters lays eggs? Now that’s new.
I really really need to read more of her books
