Mix 1 part narrow minded fairy with 1 part human bachelor to get 2 parts everlasting love
Aisling is not happy to be tending
bar in a human pub. Her fairy aunt predicted she'd find love by the next full
moon, and that means she should be back in Ireland -- not in the middle of
Despite the happy married lives of
his friends, Daniel is content to remain a bachelor. After all, the pretty new
bartender may want to come home with him. Why spoil that with a relationship?
Something might have happened on
its own, but a mischievous pub owner slips each of them a Wit & Wizardry
brew known to contain a powerful love potion. Before either can say a word,
Aisling and Daniel find themselves tumbling headlong into love.
Unfortunately, all is not happily
ever after. Aisling does not want to love a human, and Daniel believes he's
unfairly pressured her into being with him. When the pair settle down to
breathe, can they discover something deeper to bind them, or will daylight make
the heady effects of a potioned brew fade away?
"Here, Aisling. Drink up."
Aisling had her head on her arms on the little table in the
break room. She lifted her head at Dirv's voice. He held out a shot glass with
something green inside.
She eyed the drink. "What's this?"
"Just a little something I mixed up. An old Russian
drink of apology. I know you don't like to work with humans. This is my way of
saying I'm sorry."
She looked from the drink to Dirv and back again. "Will
it make me drunk?" It could be nice to be drunk, she thought absently, if
it could make that delicious human get out of her thoughts.
Again he shrugged his bony shoulders. "I don't know. It
doesn't make me drunk, but I'm a leshy, so very little makes me drunk. Your
being fairy, I don't know how it will affect you. But that's not the point.
Drink up. It's an apology. Refusal will insult me."
She shrugged. "Why not?" She took the offered
glass and tipped it back in one long swallow. It didn't burn like she'd
expected, but the taste was one she knew all too well.
She sputtered, but it was too late. The brew had gone down.
"What was in that?" she demanded.
"Just a little of this and a little of that."
"You put Wit & Wizardry beer in that!"
"Of course. You think I make an apology drink with my
vodka? No, you don't like that stuff. You like Wizardry brew. So I made the
drink with that."
"You aren't supposed to use that stuff!"
"I'm not supposed to sell it. I didn't sell it. I told
you I'd never sell from that batch. Besides, there is some missing anyway. One
more beer gone won't hurt."
"Dirv! You used the brew with the love potion in
it." Her nerves began to hum as thoughts of that handsome human flooded
her mind. Daniel. She started to mellow at thoughts of him, then her spine
No. No human. She could not love a human.
