When Kelley Winslow scores the part of fairy queen Titania in Shakespeare's A Midsummer's Night Dream, she knows it's a role that could change her life. And it does — but not exactly how she expects. She discovers she isn't just playing a fairy — she is one. Now, the fate of humankind is in her hands. Wondrous Strange is a compelling fantasy story.

From the book

She drew herself up and took in a breath, concentrating on her inflection so that she could indulge him in his game. Then she leaned forward and, in her best, most sincerely love-struck voice, breathed, "I love thee."

Sonny's face was just inches from hers. His storm-gray eyes flashed, and the dark silk of his hair drifted across his cheek as he leaned in his head. "Perfect."

So was the kiss.

Perfect.

"I love thee," Sonny murmured, all pretense gone.
