Cassie is on the run. Hiding from an enemy who is determined to see her dead, she spends her life isolated on a mountain living off the land. When a man-a very naked man-falls out of the sky, what's a woman to do? Take him home of course.
Liam, a guardian sworn to protect those with the blood of the supernaturals, should feel no love, passion, or desire for his charge, but he does. In order to build a life with her, he must ask a boon of his queen and king. He must become a real flesh and blood man. For what human woman could ever love a leprechaun?
His eyes opened and she stared into the most beautiful sapphire blue eyes she'd ever seen. Something hard poked her in the hip and she blushed, finally remembering their state of undress.
"Can you breathe?" she asked as she jumped off him. Men! They get a damned hard-on over anything. Less than two minutes ago, his life hung in the balance. Now he's aroused. Well, that figures, doesn't it?
Keeping her distance, she kept her gaze on his face. Big mistake.
He stared back at her through half-closed eyes. God, he was potent. Even half-dead. Just a look left her melting. She felt it. Her insides turned to jelly. Heat pooled in her womb and her nipples hardened when his gaze dropped to her chest.
Sexual energy rolled off him in waves. Something told her to run. He was definitely fine. He had to be. Anyone who could stare at her with such intensity had to be okay. She backed up a step, mindful of her nudity. God, she wanted nothing more than to crawl into a hole and hide. Whether she would be hiding from him, or her own sexual appetite, she had no idea.
Cammie tried to keep her gaze locked above his waist. The last thing she needed was to see the part of him that pushed so insistently against her hip a few short minutes ago. The thing felt huge.
