All Keiron wants is a quiet life. Fat chance with a boyfriend like Bren. But if he thought Bren complicated his life, it was nothing to the complications that begin when he opens the door to a young naked man who claims to be his slave. Draven is a fairy with his sights set on the handsome human who keeps a wild place in the garden for fairies. When Draven slips though a fairy gate into the city, and Keiron's world, he sets in motion a series of events that binds him to Keiron forever, and just might be the end of him. While Draven explores Keiron's world with wide eyed wonder, Keiron does everything he can to keep Draven's at bay, until the only way to save Draven and bring him home is to step into a world that exists only in children stories and animated movies - doesn't it.

In present times, Cheryl lives in a terraced house in the valleys with her son, one hamster, two black cats, and a crazy dog. Her daughter has deserted her for the big city, but they're still close
