Review of T.J. Land's Bad Fairies series.

BAD FAIRIES by T.J. LAND
Midsummer Nights 3*
BLURB: Newly arrived at Oberon’s court, Puck has already made a name for himself through his wit, his wiliness, and his very nice legs. But he’s not interested in the envy of his peers; what he’s really after is the attention of the Lord of All Fairies himself. Seducing the monarch will surely win him power and prestige, provided he can withstand Oberon’s famously bad temper.
Soon, though, Puck realizes that Oberon’s belligerent fa├žade is just that, and his schemes of strategic seduction are submerged beneath budding infatuation. Now, Puck will have to muster all his tricks, from sonnets to the lash, to win the fairy king’s heart – a task which becomes substantially more difficult when Oberon discovers that Puck has been consorting with mortals…
Midsummer Sky 3*
BLURB: No one knows why Oberon, king of the greatest fairy court in the world, doesn’t have wings. Not even his crafty lover, Puck, who prides himself on being privy to all Oberon’s secrets. But that’s about to change, for Oberon’s mother has revealed to her son that there may be a way to regain his lost wings—provided Oberon is willing to risk losing Puck…
Midsummer Court 3*
BLURB: While Titania is visiting her relatives, Oberon is left to govern the fairy court in her absence, with Puck, his lover and adviser, at his side. Despite Puck’s efforts to drag the king away from his duties and towards more salacious pursuits, Oberon remains loved and respected by the majority of his people. But trouble looms on the horizon; Oberon’s rumoured perversity and failure to produce an heir have earned him a handful of political enemies. When disaster strikes the court at the solstice feast, they are quick to point the finger of blame at the one they hold responsible for Oberon’s weaknesses—Puck himself.

My Review: I was given a free copy of these books in exchange for an honest review. I actually read book one short time ago (June 2016) and when I got the chance to read the other two and do a series review I couldn't resist. The stories are based on William Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream with Puck and Oberon as the main characters/ I absolutely adored the fact that T.J. wrote the fairies as just inches tall with Oberon being a giant among them at 7 inches. There is quite a lot of fairly hot sex for such small beings and the main story in each book was perfectly capable of standing alone but it was better to have read them all together (I reread book one first).
I don't want to give any other spoilers so let me just say the books are well worth reading if you have a couple of hours to fill and want something that includes a couple of horny fairies, a nice story line, and a fair sprinkling of The Bard's poetry too.
