Synopsis

What would you do if you thought you couldn’t fail?

Fairly Certain is the unlikely adventure of nineteen year old Petir Capota, a computer geek who finds himself back in the days of Robin Hood after falling out of a tree in Connecticut. He awakens surrounded by a band of young British scavengers, clothed as if in Old England. His instinct to freak out is tempered by the arrival of a fair maiden wearing a bow…and arrow. Normally, fair maiden types don’t go for computer geek types, but for some reason, Petir is fairly certain he can do whatever he wants in this realm.

With the conflict of the Royals escalating, Maid Rianne has joined the outlaws hiding in the forest, outwardly defying the handsome and accomplished knight to whom she is promised. She is fairly certain she merely feels flattered by Lord Petir’s uncensored admiration of her skills with the staff and bow, the same unmaidenly pursuits disdained by her own knight. However, that does not explain the quickening of her pulse produced by Lord Petir’s unguarded gaze.

The outlaws bring Petir to their camp to tend his injuries. To Petir’s delight, and to Maid Rianne’s dismay, they invite him to join their merry band. It’s all fun and games until she is captured by the enemy. Now, a geek with no ability to defend himself must find a way to rescue the fair maiden.

Teaser: Excerpt

     “Does...does she love him?” Petir asked as casually as he could.
     Mistress Molly arched a knowing eyebrow. “Not as much as you love her.”
     “Me? Love Rianne? I don’t love her. I just met her. How could I love her? She’s a…a…a medieval maiden who…who wants to hit me with her staff whenever she gets pissed!” Petir gestured wildly with his free hand, barely noticing her steadying his crutch. “I’m a computer jockey who falls out of trees. She’s Xena the Warrior Princess, and I’m…I’m not even attracted to her.”
     “Tis most unfortunate, indeed.” Mistress Molly released his crutch and gathered her dress. “She deserves a devoted lord and master, not a blackguard who corners any skirt.”
     “What do you mean?” Petir limped after her. “He cheats on her? On Maid Rianne?”
     Shushing him, Mistress Molly glanced back.
     Abashed, Petir lowered his voice. “How could anyone cheat on someone like Maid Rianne?”
     “Perhaps ’e is not even attracted to her.”
     “Not attracted to her?” he sputtered. “He’d have to be blind not to be attracted to…”
     He paused as the flap to the maidens’ tent lifted.
     Maid Rianne emerged clothed in an earth-brown dress befitting the times, rivaling anything twenty-first century Victoria’s Secret had to offer. The fabric hugged her slender frame, emphasizing the curves that had been distracting him for the last few days. The front of her dark hair had been swept up, but the rest of it tumbled down her back.
     Petir had never seen anything like it. She was perfect, except for the scowl on her reddened face.
     “Not a word,” she growled as she stormed past. “Not a single word.”
     Her betrothed is cheating on that?

Fairly Safe [2]

When Mistaken Identity collides with Secret Identity, who wins?

JACOB HAS COME A LONG WAY FOR AN ORPHANED FOSTER KID. He has a mentor, a great job, and has finally fallen in love. Granted, she mistook him for a stalker when they met, but every relationship has its little problems. Unfortunately, for the past few years, as the object of his affection pops in and out of his life, she has refused to share any personal info, like where she’s from, or her real name. Regardless, Jacob is ready to take their relationship to the next level. Now, if only he can locate her so he can tell her.

CASEY’S FAMILY IS IN THE WITNESS PROTECTION PROGRAM. Safety has to be their only priority. Their cover has been blown before, so Casey knows at any given time they could be forced to disappear again. Obviously, a shy young man with hopeful eyes cannot possibly be added to the mix. You cannot build a relationship like that. Now, if only she can stop thinking about him.

JACOB’S AND CASEY’S WORLDS UNEXPECTEDLY COLLIDE when Jacob inadvertently helps hide her family. Exposed to their 24-7 vigilance, Jacob realizes he must come up with a plan to keep them out of harm’s way, because this time if Casey disappears, she will be taking with her Jacob’s heart, and his hopes of finally having a family of his own.

About the Author

DEBORAH ANN DAVIS writes Quirky New/Young Adult Fiction with a Twist. She began writing when searching for inspiration for her 5th grade English Journal. Lo and behold, she found her world was full of funny tales just waiting to be told. As she grew older, it never occurred to her to pursue writing, not even when she discovered her flare for telling stories at college parties. After a string of undergrad majors, she realized she could reach a captive audience EVERY DAY in the public school system. As you probably know, teenagers love to laugh, and what could be more entertaining than Biology, Earth Science, and Environmental Science? Then there's an added bonus: Once teens know you like to laugh, they want to make you laugh. Go figure.

After a particularly nasty bout of Lyme disease, she turned to Fitness to boost her health, and to Writing to boost her happiness. Currently, she is a healthy and happy Educational Speaker and a Certified Personal Trainer.

Twelve years after their first kiss, Deborah reunited with, and married her childhood sweetheart. Together they coached their daughter's AAU Basketball Team, which swept States two years in a row. (Yay!) Then, for several years, their daughter and their money went to college.

They presently reside on a lovely lake in Connecticut. When she isn't writing novels for her Love of Fairs series, she enjoys dabbling with living a sustainable life, dancing, playing outside, and laughing really hard every day. She also promotes increasing your movement throughout your day as Wiggle Writer in her Merry Meddling blog.

    1. Oh, don't get me started. Besides December 2nd being being the re-launch date of Fairly Certain, it's going to be a 3rd quarter moon, and it will have a beautiful waning gibbous shape. TMI?
