Anne Halford is a candy crafter determined to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a Silver Sugar Master—a title bestowed only by royalty—by winning first place in the Royal Candy Fair. The journey to the capital will be dangerous, however, so she purchases Challe, a handsome but foulmouthed fairy, to be her bodyguard. Anne wishes to befriend her new companion, but in this kingdom where fairies are treated as property, Challe wants nothing to do with humans. Will this journey with her change his mind? And will Anne arrive safely at the fair?
