This story tugged at my Irish heart strings. Declan is cunning but met a feisty match in Maggie. Very creative twist on the Celtic leprechaun. Sara did we Irish folk proud. I ken the sequel will be as fine.

LUCK OF THE IRISH is a delightful sexy and sweet adult fairy tale. Maggie had a sinking suspicion that those stories her Aunt Lizzie told her, the ones that sent her to bed with her head full of leprechauns and fairies, may be more than fairytales after all. LUCK OF THE IRISH by Sara Humphreys is an enchanting tale of a leprechaun fae who is freed from the mirror which has served as his prison for two hundred years by a young maiden in Brooklyn. It is most definitely an engrossing read as I had to stay up well past my bedtime finishing it; Sleep was impossible until I'd read the last sentence. This story is a spin off of the author's Princes of Hell series and features the leprechaun fae. You do not need to have read the Princess of Hell to fully enjoy this tale. I know this because I have not read any of the Princess of Hell series and I loved LUCK OF THE IRISH! So you know... The leprechaun fae are born of a witch and fae pairing, but considered outcasts by both. The leprechaun fae live quietly in a remote village within the Fae realm. I understand that this novella was originally published in the Get Lucky anthology but that version included a cliffhanger. This updated rendition no longer features a cliffhanger, although the story is still not done. LUCK OF THE IRISH is now the first installment in a planned trilogy. As the story opens, we meet Declan Aherne, a leprechaun fae, who has just lost his beloved witch-wife in childbirth. Before she passed, she had asked him to return her to her people for burial and, when he sadly does so, her father, an evil powerful warlock, who blames Declan for his daughter's death, banishes Declan into a spelled mirror to remain there until released by a matching amulet coupled with the right words. Maggie, a human, vividly remembers the fairy tales that her Aunt Lizzie had shared with her growing up. One of her favorites is about a magic mirror that holds a leprechaun wrongly imprisoned. Her Aunt had described the mirror in detail and, even though her Aunt has passed, Maggie still spends her free time searching antique shops for the mirror. Lo and behold, one day, she finds the mirror and takes it home. Thinking herself silly, she holds the amulet her Aunt had given her to the mirror and utters the words her Aunt had taught her. The mirror's surface ripples and a six-foot, hunky, kilted Irishman complete with a sword on his back erupts! Do not worry! He poses no threat to Maggie; He only wants to is to get back to the Fae realm and find his daughter who has been without a mother or father for centuries. I loved both the hero and heroine. She craved excitement in her life and sure got it! LOL! I've always thought of leprechauns as wee wizened, mischievous gnome-like creatures with their hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. This story makes me re-think my former typecasting. I definitely like Sara's sexy version better! Oh... and wait until you find out about that pot of gold...

I really enjoyed this book and loved the world that was created by Sara Humphreys. The history from the past and then the jump to the present were handled wonderfully, giving me just enough information about Declan and the how and why he ends up in the mirror, and then transitioning that to present day and meeting Maggie and learning about the amulet. Declan and Maggie were so much fun to watch together. It wasn’t enough to have a leprechaun come out of a mirror, but when that leprechaun is over six feet tall, more than easy on the eyes, and dressed in a kilt – well, you can’t blame Maggie for fainting! Of course watching the two of them together and the undeniable chemistry between them was all sorts of fun. And when Maggie learns of Declan’s need to return to his world and find his daughter you could just feel the emotional relationship begin to build between the two. I had originally read this as part of the “Get Lucky” anthology, and was thrilled to see that a few additional chapters have been added to not leave me on so much of a cliff. It’s clear that there is much more to Declan and Maggie’s story, so I was so happy to learn that this is the first of three novellas that will tell their story. This is a great story that I highly recommend to any lover of paranormal/fantasy romance. With its great world and sexy leprechaun there’s a lot to love about this book! I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
