Synopsis:

While most seventeen-year-old American girls would refuse to let their parents marry them off to a stranger, Robyn Mason dreams of the mysterious McKale in Ireland, wondering how he’ll look and imagining his cute Irish accent. Prearranged bindings are common for magical families like her own, however when she travels to the whimsical Emerald Isle she discovers there’s more to her betrothal and McKale’s clan than she was led to believe.

What starts as an obligatory pairing between Robyn and McKale morphs over time into something they both need. But one giant obstacle stands in the way of their budding romance: a seductive and deadly Fae princess accustomed to getting what she wants—and what she wants is McKale as her plaything. Love, desire, and jealousies collide as Robyn’s family and McKale’s clan must work together to outsmart the powerful Faeries and preserve the only hope left for their people.


Review:

This was very different from the other books Wendy Higgins wrote. For one thing, it's about faeries and has leprechauns. 

It was good but sometimes I would just get confused and what was happening. Mostly my brain would not grasp with some of the story and  then halfway I would forget what happened that cause this to happen.

The main character is a 17 year old named Robyn who is betrothed to McKale (who by the way is like 50 but looks young) who has a clan living in Ireland. She was betrothed to him when she was 6 and now that she'd turning 18, people are expecting her to marry him. So apparently Robyn is 5'11" and McKale is a giant leprechaun in his world. In my opinion, I think everyone is a giant because I'm 5'3" so McKale, stop complaining and deal with it.

What Robyn didn't expect was a faerie princess wanting McKale and this isn't like a ditzy loving one. Khalistah is a total jealous bitch that gets in the way with everything. I pictured her as Khaleesi/Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones.

The relationship with Robyn and McKale at first was rocky. This is mostly because they didn't know each other and is being forced to marry each other and then the bitch faerie being up on McKale'e face. Throughout the whole book though, they try to make it work.

Don't even get me started with the setting. I'm so very confused if it's a modern day thing or another world timeline. If it was in the book, I don't remember. 

Overall, I do recommend this book. The beginning can get a little confusing or its slow but give it a few chapters.
