While most seventeen-year-old American girls would refuse to let their parents marry them off to a stranger, Robyn Mason dreams of the mysterious McKale in Ireland, wondering how he’ll look and imagining his cute Irish accent. Prearranged bindings are common for magical families like her own, however when she travels to the whimsical Emerald Isle she discovers there’s more to her betrothal and McKale’s clan than she was led to believe.

What starts as an obligatory pairing between Robyn and McKale morphs over time into something they both need. But one giant obstacle stands in the way of their budding romance: a seductive and deadly Fae princess accustomed to getting what she wants—and what she wants is McKale as her plaything. Love, desire, and jealousies collide as Robyn’s family and McKale’s clan must work together to outsmart the powerful Faeries and preserve the only hope left for their people.

After earning a Creative Writing degree from George Mason University and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Radford, I taught high school English until becoming a mommy. I've always had a heart for teens, and writing YA stories gives me the opportunity to delve into the ambiguities of those pivotal years before adulthood.
I live in Virginia with my husband, daughter, son and doggie Rue.

Really enjoyed this book! What a magical and romantic story! If you like to get lost in the magical world of Leprechauns, Fae and human magic then this is the book for you! Robyn was just a few weeks old when her parents had to travel into the Faerie to give their report to the Summer King. The Fae woman in charge saw Robyn as a baby and decided that she would be the chosen one to marry someone that would be important to the King. As soon as Robyn graduated high school she and her family traveled to Ireland to meet her betrothed...a leprechaun!!!!! Poor Robyn! 

 Would all the American tales be true?! Would he be a little red headed man?! All these years of looking forward to meeting her man and now she learns he is a leprechaun!!! Will it work out?! Will Robyn fall in love?! I will say I was very impressed with Robyn's character! She handled everything much better than most American teens would have. 
 I give this book 4 stars!
