The Chancellor Fairy Tales

The Chancellor Fairy Tales is a sweet romance novella series set in the small community of Chancellor on Lake Erie. In this trilogy, you will meet three couples who are unique in terms of their relationships and the fairy tale elements they encounter.



All life is as fragile as glass. What would you sacrifice to save the one you love? 

Kate 

I'm the last mermaid. 

I'm back on shores of Lake Erie, but the cold waters are silent. There is nothing here for me but ghosts and the beach glass that litters the rocky shore. Long ago, I lived below the waves. Now, I am the sole survivor, and at long last, my mermaid glamour is leaving me. 

Every day, I walk the beach. Every day, I wonder what happened to my people. The little pieces of colored glass that wash ashore give me simple pleasure. They are gifts from the lake, reminders of home. I fashion them into trinkets: necklaces, earrings, bracelets. They are beautiful things. The humans seem love them. 

Every day, I walk the beach. Nothing ever changes, until the day he says hello. 

Cooper 


I'm dying. 

It's not a question, it's a fact. The cancer is eating me alive. They told me I have six months to live, maybe less. I came home, back to Chancellor on Lake Erie, to die. The sunsets are vivid there, and I will relish every one. 

I've never seen anything more beautiful than a Lake Erie sunset until I see her. 





They say the course of true love never runs smooth. 

That’s nothing a magical cupcake can’t solve. 

Julie 

Buttercream. Vanilla. Fondant. Dark chocolate. Brown sugar. Molasses. Baking has always been my true love, but it wasn’t until my mother’s death, and the unexpected inheritance of Serendipity Gardens, that my bliss called me. Bittersweet. But Serendipity Gardens has more to offer than just a potential shopfront. An unusual recipe box left to me by a distant relative might be the key to unlocking my dreams. 

Too bad the most powerful family in Chancellor has plans that could turn those dreams to ruins—literally. 

Too bad the son of that powerful family is just the kind of guy I’ve been looking for. 

Horatio 
I suppose being heir to the Hunter family’s Blushing Grape Winery should make me happy, but nothing could be further from the truth. With my mother gone, my father has taken me under his wing, and I despise everything about the way he does business. Sour grapes, indeed. Instead of raising money for charitable causes, my true passion, I’m chasing my father’s manifest destiny. 

Too bad his dream includes paving paradise. 

Too bad the property owner is the sweetest woman I’ve ever met. 





What if your fairy godfather was too busy falling in love to help you find your soulmate? 

Viola
After years of working for my family's business, I'm finally back in college and ready to chase my dream of becoming a perfumer. It seems like the stars are all aligning when Chancellor College invites a preeminent French fragrance expert to speak at a symposium. Everything is working out just right, as long as I can continue to ignore my growing feelings for a certain hippie beekeeper. That, it seems, is turning out to be easier said than done.

Rayne
The elders sent me on a mission to Chancellor to help Alice, owner of the local bagel shop, find true love. So far? Well, not so good. The bees and I have to double up our efforts if we have any hope of helping our girl find the road to happiness. While I know Alice should be my priority one, my heart, however, seems to have a mind of its own. If I could just get Viola Hunter out of my mind, I could focus on my task. That, it seems, is turning out to be easier said than done.

When your heart makes a wish, even impossible dreams can come true.

The Bee Charmer is a fractured fairy tale. Enjoy this twisted retelling of the classic Cinderella story.
