He’s lucky as sin, and we’re playing for keeps.
Seven Delaney runs his corner of Dragonfly Hollow with the insufferable arrogance you’d expect from someone born lucky. The sexy billionaire leprechaun is responsible for the most humiliating experience of my life and is the reason I fled that fae city sixteen years ago.
But living as an undocumented fae among humans isn’t easy. When a high-stakes poker game goes terribly wrong, I end up in more trouble than I can handle. Returning to Dragonfly Hollow is my only way out, but there’s a price. Seven needs my help, and my pixie talents, to solve a murder that threatens his fortune as well as our kind’s tenuous relationship with humans.
I promised myself I’d never get involved with him again, but his dark charms prove hard to resist. Playing Seven for my heart is going to take more than a gambling strategy. It’s going to take luck—and lots of it.
Plot/Idea: Elements of fun, mystery, and romance make this a fast-moving plot with plenty of imagination. The reader will walk away with a logical understanding of where fairies come from in this magic system and how they function in a human world.
Prose: Whimsical and light, the author has created a fresh take on a world where fairies, leprechauns, and humans live together harmoniously, even though the odds are always in favor of the luck of the Irish. The author’s imagination is fun and thoughtful with plenty of wit and charm.
Originality: The idea of leprechauns, humans, and fairies thriving together in peace feels original.
Character Development/Execution: Characters here are delightful and believable. The author avoids awkward interactions among them by creating a world where they all co-exist regardless of their roots. The leprechaun is charming, and there is no doubt why the main character can’t resist him.
