The Trouble with an Elf Cover

This is the first book in the Fairie Ring series.

The Dark Lords, a mysterious council of evil beings, are trying to take control of the world of Fairie and the world of humans. Both worlds need each other to survive, but they cannot understand each other. Beautiful teenage Fairie Princess Elazandra takes on the awesome responsibility of protecting both worlds and slips into the human realm disguised as an exchange student living in the Jenkins home. The disguise is easily done: blue contact lenses to cover her golden eyes, and long, pale blonde hair to cover her pointed elfin ears. Soon she is forced to share her secret with Ryan, the Jenkins's son and an excellent junior high school student who excels in fencing. As the two become caught up in the battle of sword and sorcery, their hearts are forever bound in first and undying love.

Supporting characters introduced in the first book are Ashlyn, Ryan’s older sister and Elazandra’s roommate in the Jenkins home; Michael, Ryan’s best friend and computer genius; and Fax, a small, overweight dragon who both helps and hinders the main characters. And there are the orcs, evil creations of the Dark Lords who form the foot soldiers of the villains’ armies that are secretly gathering in a deserted toxic waste site.
