Abby’s knees chose that moment to give way, and she collapsed into a heap at the base of the tree.
Michael McKnight heard Abby’s plea, felt the waves of magic radiating out to him from the fairy charms she’d acquired, and the instant she’d asked for fairy magic, and put that tiny door at the base of the grand live oak he bent time and space to get to her. Banished for the last ten years for the misuse of his magic—and for hoarding gold—he had spent a life apart from her, one that had literally been a living hell.
“Wake up, Abby!” He’d scared the precious thing to death. “What have I done – ahh, damn it, Abby, don’t do this to me, sweetheart, wake up!”
Getting caught by a human was end-game for any leprechaun, but Michael wanted her to catch him. He’d loved her since they were children, and sometimes he thought he’d dreamed her into life.
But she’d never recognize him now—penance for his sins included the curse of living in this ridiculously tiny body with the green felt hat and shoes.
He cradled her head in his hands, her angelic face graced with freckles, everywhere, and those waving locks of long ginger hair. “Ahh, my Irish lass, through-and-through, you’re overcome with the sight of me.”

Abigail O’Malley wants to find true love…which is about as easy as catching a leprechaun.
Abigail O’Malley’s world turns upside down when a rival Irishman threatens to take her bar, an historic Savannah landmark, mere days before the start of the annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
When she captures a leprechaun with fairy charms, her three wishes include his gold, fairy magic, and the mystery of her One True Love.
Michael McKnight has pined over Abby forever, but will he have time to reveal his true nature and prove he’s up to the task of granting all her wishes before the bad guys close in and destroy Abby’s dreams forever?
