Publisher's Summary

After her two best friends marry a blood-sucking vampire and furry-faced werewolf, Corinne D'Alessandro is making a vow of her own: NO interspecies dating. But when her editor asks her to investigate "leprechaun" sightings, the sassy New York reporter finds herself on the trail of the hottest story of the year - and the sexiest man alive....

His name is Luc, and he's as gorgeous as any Prince Charming in any bedtime story. There's just one problem: He's not human, he's fae. A captain of the Fae Queen's Guard, Luc is on a dangerous mission - and he could use the help of a certain leprechaun-hunting reporter. But when their two worlds collide, the sparks begin to fly. If Corinne and Luc can't control their lust - and focus on the villains in this story - their faerie-tale romance won't end happily ever after....

Totally Fantastic Series

I have the entire "Others" series and it's worth a read at least once a year. I sometimes go through it twice if I have time; it's that good.. In Audio, it's even better thanks to Kate Reading.

However, having said that, I would like to point out that the books are WAY out of order. The sequence of events has a chronology, and to get the most out of the series you should listen to or read the books in the following order.

1. Book 6 "One Bite with a Stranger"
2. Book 8 "Big Bad Wolf"
3. Book 10 "Prince Charming Doesn't Live Here"
4. Book 11 "Black Magic Woman"
5. Book 12 "Not Your Ordinary Faerie Tale"
6. Book 1 "Wolf at the Door"
7. Book 2 "She's no Faerie Princess"
8. Book 3 "The Demon you Know"
9. Book 4 "Howl at the Moon"
10. Book 7 "You're so Vein"
11. Book 9 "Born to be Wild"
12. Book 5 "Walk on the Wild Side"

If you follow this list, you will enjoy the series a LOT more.

Great Fun Series

This is a great series with enough quirks and twists to keep it interesting and enough comedy to never drag you down. I don't like books that are so terrifying that I feel like an overstretched rubber band. A little comic relief is always welcome.

Story, Performance, Characters all worth reading

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I liked this whole Group...This was not the best book in the group, but it was still worth<br/>the time to listen to...

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

That's what I like about these books, they always have HAPPY ending....

Would you listen to another book narrated by Kate Reading?

If Kate Reading narrated this GROUP of books...I have already listed to more of her<br/>books

Was Not Your Ordinary Faerie Tale worth the listening time?

Yes, even though I have listened to more interesting books...

Any additional comments?

No

Kate Reading Rocks!

What made the experience of listening to Not Your Ordinary Faerie Tale the most enjoyable?

If you haven't heard Reading read, do yourself a favor and order one of her books. I could listen forever.

Great book!

I really love this series and this book was just as good as the others. As with most of Warren's books, the guy is old, a little domineering, and over protective, but hot as can be. The girl is fairly independent and resistant to the guy's advances. I can't say it is the most unique book, but definitely enjoyable. It delves into the Fae world more and brings in characters from past books.

A Great Addtion to the Other Series

This was another good addition to the the series. This series is a light hearted fun read with a little (although predictable) romance.

Annoying waste of money.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Originality. Character development.

What could Christine Warren have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I won't buy or read anything she writes again.

What three words best describe Kate Reading’s voice?

Always good.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No.

Any additional comments?

I normally listen to books while working, so I will usually listen to almost anything to pass the time. I opted to listen to nothing instead.

The narrator killed it for me...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I read 3 'other' books in the series this was the first that I had listened to, I was disappointed with the narrator so much that it was hard to enjoy the story

Would you be willing to try another book from Christine Warren? Why or why not?

Yes I would try another Warren book with a different narrator because I have enjoyed reading her books

How could the performance have been better?

Let me count the ways...

Was Not Your Ordinary Faerie Tale worth the listening time?

Not really
