From the Cover: A librarian by day and a tooth faery by night, Sidney has absolutely no time to find Mr. Right. Until she flies smack dab into sexy, sun-bronzed Dart Sand, a man who makes her wings a-flutter…and whose allure could get her banished from the Mortal Realm.
Sydney is a tooth faerie with a fetish for the Mortal Realm. She loves it, hasn't visited Faerie in decades. Why should she? There she's just one more of the many children of the Tooth family. The Mortal Realm rocks, where else could Sydney be on her on? As long as none of the rules are broken and she doesn't rock the boat....she can stay in the Mortal Realm. If only she could find someone that would twist her sheets!
Dart Sand is a sandman, no one escaped his notice, everyone who needs dusting was dusted, regularly. The Mortal Realm was fine and he planned to stay here. When he noticed Sydney, he wasn't sure if she was real or not. She didn't look faerie, maybe she'd spent too much time in the Mortal Realm, pretending to be mortal. But, there was definitely something about her.
The mothers of Sydney's town have decided that Santa Claus doesn't exist, they've run off the Easter Bunny, and now it's Sydney's turn. As she tries to go on her nightly retrievals, instead of teeth, she finds a note. "My mom says the tooth faerie doesn't exist." She doesn't know what to think, the moms are trying to run her out of town. Well, this is just not happening!! No Way! As she returns to the sleeping child, pow! She runs right into Dart Sand and promptly gets dusted. Out like a light!
Dart can't believe his eyes, who's the beautiful faerie? He can't resist, as he bends down to put his lips to hers, and, pow! again and this time it hurts.
As Sydney brushes herself off, who should she see? It's none other but the ever sexy sandman, Dart Sand. Talk about a sheet twister! Well, it served him right to get punched, kissing unconscious faeries! If only she could take a chance and kiss him for real, but that would be breaking the rules. What can a tooth faerie with a major need for love to do?
Dart wants to get to know Sydney better, but he's afraid to get too close; he has a secret that he doesn't want to spread around. He has a slight problem pre-ejaudusting. He gets all excited, hot and bothered; and before he knows what has happened, he's dusted his lover; never fulfilling his needs or hers. He dusts too early. What's a sandman to do?
Dust Me Baby, One More Time by Michele Hauf was fun, completely and totally! I had a blasted, laughing until the last page. I loved Sydney Tooth, I could just see her stomping her little faerie foot, refusing to take what they're trying to dish out to run off all the supernatural creatures. Dart Sand was hot, all the flower faeries thought so, if only he could control his dust. I mean, it's great to get dusted when you can't sleep, but bad when you're trying to twist the sheets. How are our hero and heroine going to get together you might wonder? Well, there are tricks that every faerie has to learn, right? This little novella was all about having a good time and maybe finding true love, and if that's what you're after, as well as a little hot sheet twisting romance, then Faeries Gone Wild and Dust Me Baby, One More Time is the book for you. I love how the faeries are mortal tall by day, teenie tiny by night to make their rounds, with beautiful wings that shimmer with a translucency. Great use of imagery. So far, I can highly recommend this book, and I'm sure the last story will be as great as the first three! If you haven't checked out Faeries Gone Wild, then what are you waiting for??
