When Ianthe began her career as a faery godmother, she stumbled so badly that Snow White will probably never speak to her again. After a long suspension, she’s finally been given a chance to redeem herself…but everything on this latest assignment is going wrong.
Worse, she definitely doesn’t need an attractive mortal man distracting her from her duties. Of course, needs and wants are two different things.
Briak has had his eye on Ianthe for a very, very long time, but he’s been waiting for just the right moment to make his move. Despite the fact all hell’s about to break loose on his watch, he can’t resist the opportunity to insert himself into her earthly assignment. Can he convince Ianthe of her true calling and thereby win her heart? Or will his subterfuge ultimately cost him her love?

Excerpt:What had she said wrong?
“If Mallory cared about their relationship, would she’ve done something like this? I mean, she didn’t even check with us first.”
But [Briak] didn’t seem quite as annoyed as he should. Indeed, Ianthe thought he was amused.
“These things happen,” she said, watching her father [examine the sick mare]. The elder man muttered to himself and from the sound of it, Ianthe didn’t think he was coming up with good news for Snow White’s owner. “We’ll deal with it.” She frowned. “Who knows if you might not need to reschedule both?”
[Briak] glanced at her, worry wiggling deep into his eyes. “Yeah.” He cared about the horses if not so much the owner’s schedule. What a weird guy.
She reached out and smoothed a hand down his back. Briak relaxed a little and so did she. “She’ll be okay,” she said. “Daddy’s the best vet I know. Why don’t we get him some coffee? You don’t need to hover.”
“I’m not hovering.” A smile lit over Briak’s face for the first time. “Besides, we’re going to owe you a check for this. Come on inside and I’ll see to it.”
She laced her arm through his and tugged him to the doors. “Whatever you want to call it, I’m not going to refuse.”
Though he seemed reluctant to go, that he followed her, and she liked it, confused her. She didn’t need the distraction. What had she been thinking to suggest they go inside, away from the others? Maybe a little faery dust would make him go away—and knock sense into her.
He opened the office door for her, ushered her over the threshold, and disappeared into Randall’s office for a moment.
“Tell me about this group Mallory booked,” she called out.
“They’ve been here, I don’t know... Years,” Briak said. “I’ve seen them around the hospital now and then. Their coordinator said they work with the cancer patients.” He reemerged and handed her a check. “Hang on to this.”
“Daddy’s not finished his exam, yet,” Ianthe said.
“I trust your word. If you say he’s skilled, he’ll be worth the pay. Will this do?”
She glanced down at the check, studying Briak’s fine, clean script. He’d offered more than she suspected they paid their own veterinarian. “I can’t take this.”
He folded her hand around it. “It’s the least we can do. Keep it.”
She didn’t want to break his hold, but he soon moved away and she folded the check into her pocket.
“You wanted some coffee,” he said.
She nodded. “Please. I hear drumming circles can be a boon to good health,” she said, returning to the previous subject.
Briak shrugged. “I guess. You ask me, they’re loud.”
She smiled. “Drums tend to be.”
He retrieved a can from the cabinet. His hands unsteady, he spilled coffee grounds on the counter as he tried to fill the filter. Ianthe marched over and took the coffee can away. “Here, you’re making a mess. Let me.”
She took a spoon from the strainer and used it to scoop out more grounds. Briak shifted behind her and she felt his warm breath on her neck. She gulped and shut the basket. Turning to seek out water, she landed against Briak’s broad chest.
Ianthe blinked up at him, surprised, startled, and pleased all at once. “Hi.”
“Hi,” he said.
“I need to get the water if I’m going to finish this coffee.”
“How do we keep ending up like this?” he said in a soft voice.
