Prism Book Alliance® would like to thank Lex Chase for stopping by today.
Title: Bayou Fairy Tale
Author: Lex Chase
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Cover Artist: Paul Richmond
Genre: Action/Adventure, Fantasy, Gay, M/M Romance, Urban Fantasy
Modern day fairy tale princess Taylor Hatfield has problems. One: he’s a guy. Two: he’s Sleeping Beauty, the most useless princess in existence. Throw in his true love, Corentin Devereaux, a huntsman descended from child-eating witches, and Taylor’s younger brother, Atticus—this generation’s Snow White—who tried to kill him. That didn’t go so hot.
For two years, Taylor and Corentin live their Happily Ever After. But Corentin’s cursed to lose his memory every seven days, including his life with Taylor—a painful reminder that he can’t provide for the man he loves. Taylor insists Corentin has the strength to succeed, and when Taylor discovers a way to break the curse, he is more than willing to pay the cost.
When an enchanted blizzard devastates Corentin’s hometown of New Orleans, Taylor is convinced Atticus is to blame and grows desperate to find him amidst the Big Easy turned frozen wasteland. Corentin believes Taylor is chasing a ghost while he chases the ghosts of his own past. Old tensions scratch open scars, leaving both to wonder if they have each other’s best interests at heart. The clock is ticking until Corentin loses his memory, and the rabbit hole goes so deep they may never come out.
Lex Chase with Bayou Fairy Tale
Hello everyone! I’m Lex Chase and I want to thank Brandilyn and the crew here at Prism for having me aboard today for the Bayou Fairy Tale Blog Tour!
Bayou is the long awaited sequel to Americana Fairy Tale. It’s only been a…well…let’s just say a while. (A long while. A really long while.) Bayou continues the tale of fuck-up fairy tale princess dude Taylor Hatfield and his true love a jackass redneck huntsman by the name of Corentin Devereaux. But there’s a special little man in their lives rounding out the trio. And that is Taylor’s fairy godfather Ringo.
I’ve always pictured him as a scruffy Jeff Bridges in the Big Lebowski with big pink butterfly wings….and the size of of a tubby housecat. He is Taylor’s personal protector, chaperone, BBF 4-EVA, and the worst enabler. Ever. He is the friend your parents don’t want you hanging out with. Yet he’s the buddy you call when you did something super stupid can can’t call your parents.
He also has amazing cough taste in television. So I’m going to let him take over and give his top five of what everyone should be watching.
Ringo fluttered into the living room in a lazy curlicue path and settled the arm of the couch.
He gave a sloppy two finger salute. “‘Sup, ladies and boyos? You wanna know what’s on my DVR? Oh, yes. You do. Get your Netflix queue ready because here we go!”
What is it: A show about poor doe-eyed inventors pitching their ideas and concepts to bloodthirsty investors in pursuit of the all mighty dollar.
Why you should watch it: Because you can get your Christmas shopping done by April. Corentin loves his shammy that cleans every surface!
What is it: …..Really? You need to know by now? Okay. You take these backstabbing whackjobs, you toss them on a supposedly deserted island (when there’s really a beach resort across the island) and you watch and marvel as they try to kill each other for a million bucks. Oh. Okay. So they really don’t try to kill each other. But it makes the show so much better!
Why you should watch it: Because you should play the Survivor Drinking Game. It makes the show way better.
What is it: What is wrong with you? Oooooh ooookaaaay. Let me explain. A Congressman and his wife are total raging douchecanoes and go about enacting revenge on the people who betrayed him.
Why you should watch it: WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?
What is it: Um. James Spader doing James Spader. As in being amazing. Okay, okay. There’s a girl that’s an FBI profiler and she’s adorable and badass and teams up James Spader pretends to be super criminal dude and they kick ass. We all know he’s a criminal. A Smoooooth Criminal.
Why you should watch it: James Effin Spader!…but then there was that time I walked in on Taylor and Corentin during the season finale and when I noticed the pants on the floor…um. No. Nonono.
Let us never speak of this again.
Excuse me…I need to call my therapist…
What is it: A show about a cute sweet, innocent princess that learns the power of friendship. Innocent. Like Taylor used to be… He was such a sweet little boy once. So pure…
Why should you watch it: My therapist made me….
Lex here! Well. Uh. That got awkward. Please excuse Ringo as he stuffs his face with donuts. He’s comfort eating.

About the Author
Lex Chase once heard Stephen King say in a commercial, “We’re all going to die, I’m just trying to make it a little more interesting.” Now, she’s on a mission to make the world a hell of a lot more interesting.
Weaving tales of cinematic, sweeping adventure—and depending on how she feels that day—Lex sprinkles in high-speed chases, shower scenes, and more explosions than a Hollywood blockbuster. Her pride is in telling stories of men who kiss as much as they kick ass. If you’re going to march into the depths of hell, it better be beside the one you love.
Lex is a pop culture diva, her DVR is constantly backlogged, and unapologetically loved the ending of Lost. She wouldn’t last five minutes without technology in the event of the apocalypse and has nightmares about refusing to leave her cats behind.
She is grateful for and humbled by all the readers. She knows very well she wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them and welcomes feedback.
