To save his princedom from the greedy Faerie King, the Prince of Pixieland must marry by the next Equinox. A desperate spell hurls him into the realm of his Heart Match—who just happens to be a mortal woman!
Cast into the Other Realm—the human world—on St. Patrick’s Day, Prince Myghal pursues Kerry O’Neill with physical pleasures beyond her wildest dreams. He has only three days to convince her they are meant to be together.
Kerry has to believe that the man she had fantastic sex with and is falling hard for is actually the Prince of Pixies. She must accept it, because she has to brave the tunnels of the Troll who lives under the bridge across the street to save Myghal. And her heart has known all along that their incredible connection must be magic.
In the middle of her workday Myghal shows up at Kerry’s plant nursery. Believing that he is lost she directs him across the street to her rival's nursery. When Myghal does not leave Kerry finds herself stuck with a strange but very attractive man. Can Myghal gain her trust and love before it is too late or will his kingdom be lost?
From the time I could read I loved tales of fantasy and finding true love and this beautiful story does not disappoint. Kerry is a strong woman who is fighting to keep herself afloat. Her feistiness and smarts keep her strong in a world full of obstacles. Prince Myghal is a loyal and generous man willing to fight for love and his kingdom. The love and trust that forms between these two was a great read. I enjoyed seeing Kerry fight her fears to save her true love even if it meant never seeing him again. Add in an obnoxious troll and a gnome sent to stop the pixie prince and you have a very interesting read.
Lani Aames does a wonderful job of bringing the reader into her magical world and keeps the reader turning pages till the end. Not only do you enjoy the tale of Kerry and Myghal but you also get to meet endearing characters along the way. I would love to find out more about this world and the other characters in it. If you enjoy fantasy and true love this is a book that should not be missed. I will certainly be on the look out for more from this author in the future.
