There's only one place to go for a guaranteed happily ever after.
Caldren has been looking forward to having his own Faeted match for a long time. It’s what all the brownies do, and Faeted has always taken good care of them. As a brownie, he’s a gentle person who just wants to help his mate out and keep things clean. He likes honey, books and a tidy house.
He’s surprised when his mate turns out to be a dragon, at least according to Faeted. They’re aggressive and powerful, so Caldren doesn’t think he would be a good match for someone like that, but his kind have always trusted Faeted to do what is best for them.
Bannock is a scary dragon, just as Caldren expected him to be. But he’s also fair and firm. He appreciates what Caldren is and what he needs. It isn’t long before Caldren realizes that sometimes a little brownie needs a dragon to be whole.

Caldren is the short but sweet story about a Brownie and a Dragon, and no, it's not a joke! ;) Caldren is a Brownie, and has been on Faeted book's for six months now, but he is prepared to wait for his mate as long as is necessary. When Dyslander gives him Bannock's address, he is sure there must be a mistake. Surely no way would a Dragon want a Brownie.
This is a short story, as are all in the Faeted series, so you only get to see a snippet. Even so, you can see that Brannock and Caldren are a good match, and you hope that Caldren will relax into his role as Brannock's mate, rather than servant, sooner rather than later. This is very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow. However, it is only a snippet, so don't expect a wealth of previous information or background. For a coffee break book, this is absolutely perfect. Recommended by me.

Caitlin was fortunate growing up to be surrounded by family and teachers that encouraged her love of reading. She has always been a voracious reader and that love of the written word easily morphed into a passion for writing. If she isn't writing, she can usually be found studying as she works toward her counseling degree. She comes from a military family and the men and women of the armed forces are close to her heart.
She also enjoys gardening and horseback riding in the Colorado Rockies where she calls home with her wonderful fiance, their dog and Blue Tongue Skink. Her belief that there is no one true path to happily ever after runs deeply through all of her stories.
