Dear Ms. Henkin,
For hundreds of years Emrys has been a Faery godmother to the British royal family, guarding them with a fierce, invisible loyalty. It's all routine until she's assigned to watch Richard, a partying prince with a compassionate streak. Through him she encounters something she's never felt before: love. After the prince saves her not once, but twice, Emrys decides to break the strongest of Faery taboos. She reveals herself for what she is.
When an ancient Fae with a mysterious grudge murders the king and starts preying on the rest of the monarchy, the Guard of Faery godmothers struggles to protect them. Emrys must hunt through London's dark magical side to uncover and confront the one who threatens her love's life.
But Emrys also faces a choice. The magic of the Fae and the frailty of humans cannot mix. If she wants to be with Richard, she must give up her magic. She must choose mortality and with it, death.
GODMOTHER is a YA paranormal romance, complete at 72,000 words. It will appeal to fans of Maggie Stiefvater's SHIVER and Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's BEAUTIFUL CREATURES.
