Lucas has just returned from a most unsatisfying vacation to find his department at the Wit and Wizardry Brewery in a shambles. Of troll ancestry, Lucas is a man of appalling disposition and astounding accounting skills. Determined to set everything in order as soon as possible, he refuses to leave the office at closing time, even thought it means missing out on St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.

According to studies, nearly 10 100mg viagra cost to 20 percent men in the whole world are facing fertility issues. Not a bad combination! The reason that most celebrities prefer capsules to other forms of Organic Acai is that it’s considered a Weight Loss Product. cialis online prescription It usually takes about 30 minutes to 45 minutes for a man to get recharged, viagra no doctor which is caused as a result of dysfunction with the pancreas, which creates the hormone termed insulin. Lucas finds he’s not the only one working late. Cait, the newly hired head of marketing for the brewery, is there as well. Her overly-cheerful manner drives Lucas crazy. The last thing he needs is an optimistic, chatty, adorable pixie distracting him at work, but she can’t seem to understand that he wants to be left alone.

What neither realize is that earlier that evening, Lucas had washed down his dinner with a magical beer that will guide him toward his true love. The abominable accountant and the merry marketing manager are about to prove that opposites do attract and St. Patrick’s Day really is the best day to fall in love.

After being forced to take a week of his annual leave, Lucas returns to his desk annoyed and dismayed to find it a complete disaster. A troll, Lucas is not exactly one for fine speeches or flowering phrase – but he sure knows his work and how to jump into action when it’s needed. Cait – a pixie who works in the marketing department – is everything Lucas isn’t. Perpetually sunny and happy, Cait is the opposite to Lucas in every way. But when they both are working late on St. Patrick’s Day there’s more than a little leprechaun magic shimmering in the air.

I really enjoyed this magical short story. Set around St. Patrick’s Day there was a good amount of magic (love potions!) and magical creatures (trolls and pixies!) and of course beer. I can’t imagine anything more is needed to round out an awesome erotic story. I was particularly pleased that Cait and Lucas didn’t just jump right into bed together. As such complete opposites personality wise – and with no history of mooning over each other – I don’t feel it would have been very realistic even with a magic potion thrown into the equation to have them suddenly decide one night to become sexually intimate. So seeing them interact and being able to notice those small sparks of attraction it was good to get a feel for them both before the potion started its effect.

While there is plenty of chemistry – and a few steamy fantasies thrown in for good measure – there is only one proper, full-on sex scene in this short story. Speaking personally I was quite comfortable with this. I appreciated seeing Lucas and Cait interact together as this helped me see that there was relationship potential between them – not just a quick drunken St. Patrick’s Day shag. I could understand, though, if readers looking for a strongly erotic, heavily sexy story might find this a little light in the sex department. I thought the author balanced the relationship and connection between Lucas and Cait very well and felt there was plenty of chemistry and attraction – certainly enough to keep me eagerly turning the pages.

Quick and fun, this was a great short story.
