They Stole My Love Last Night

Short Story by Alexandra Brandt

$2.99 available in bundle


Jessamyn and her grandmother, Marie, return to the Isle of Skye for one purpose only: to lay Granmarie’s personal ghosts to rest.

But confronting old memories of her lost love sends Granmarie into an odd sort of reverie, one that soon catches Jess in its grip as well. Why do they both hear the same haunting melody?

And what secrets lie in the heart of the woodland behind the White Skye Inn?

In “They Stole My Love Last Night,” Celtic fairies, music, and ghosts collide, turning a bitter story sweet.


Alexandra Brandt spent most of her childhood dressing up in fairy wings and parading in front of the mirror telling stories to herself. Not much has changed — she still loves a good costume, and tells herself stories every day. Her stories appear in Fiction River and other anthologies. “We, the Ocean,” her story in Fiction River No Humans Allowed (Vol. 22) was described as “inventive, heartbreaking, and wholly original” by Hugo award-winning writer and editor Kristine Kathryn Rusch.

When not spinning tales, reading, or debating worldbuilding details with her writer husband, Alex writes marketing copy for a medical practice and does graphic design work, including freelance book cover design. She also sketches, sings, watches too many Sci-Fi and superhero shows, and welcomes any excuse to sit down and play tabletop games — from D&D to board games to cards.
