Fogged Up Fairy Tale

Brand Rye’s life has come to a halt. She’s lost everything—even her memory. After spending time in the hospital, Brand returns home to a husband she doesn’t remember, and a life that has disappeared overnight. Her husband, Easton, provides Brand with bits and pieces of her past while she tries to put it all together.

As Brand learns about her life, she begins to realize that she isn’t the person she hopes to be... or is she?

Alcohol and loss are what brought Easton and Brand together. Once out of rehab, Easton offered Brand a place to stay for a price. With nothing left to lose but her sarcasm, Brand took him up on his offer, which began a whirlwind of adventure, sexual tension and their fairy tale of love.

Is Brand’s second chance too late? Or will she be able to cope with the secrets as they’re revealed?


"I really enjoyed this unique tale. Brand's wit kept me laughing throughout the book. I wanted to keep track of all the hilarious sayings for the review, but I decided not to spoil it for you!" June Kramin

"Fogged Up Fairytale” has a unique take on the "happily ever after" romance. Brand's sarcasm is laugh-out-loud hilarious, and the relationship between her and Easton seems refreshingly real...The reader will absolutely love the effortless way that these two fall for each other. Although not the main focus, the crime aspect gives the book an edge of your seat sensation that can't be denied. One gets the feeling of being totally swept away with these characters as they get a second chance at love. Denise Baer's book has it all: mystery, thrills, and romance." InD'Tale Magazine

"What it's about: Brand Rye loses her memory and her husband helps her to recall what happened. Conveniently, the reader feels in real-time Brand's attraction to Easton and therefore it's probably the most realistic romance I've ever read...Do I recommend? Yes. Definitely. You have to keep in mind that it's a big deal for me to say that about a romance novel...Brand and Easton are extrordinary in the sense that you never know what they're going to do next." Jen

"I really enjoy the authors writing style. It is a unique tale with wonderful wit that makes you laugh throughout the book. I loved the flow in which the chapters were written. You are pulled into the book from the very beginning and you don't want to put the book down." Sasha
