Review by Hibiscus
When Marla Roberts gets lost in the Northern California redwood forest, she doesn’t expect to find a gingerbread cottage inhabited by two hunky males with pointy ears and flaming red hair. They’re elves, they tell her, and so is she. She soon discovers that an elfin ménage offers sensual treats she’d never find in the human world. What’s more… if she passes all their tests, they have an even bigger reward for her.
If you were given the opportunity to save a world, would you? That is the dilemma that Marla Roberts is faced with when she magically loses her way in the redwood forests of Northern California and comes face to face with six foot tall, hunky twin elves.
Meaghim’s Realm is dying and the Meaghim needs the McLeigh in order to restore the realm. Unfortunately, Meaghim can’t do anything to rectify the situation and it is left to the inhabitants of the realm to find his mate. Enter twins, Liam and Andy. These six foot, red headed hunks have been testing women from their gingerbread cottage for the last one hundred years. I felt that the fun was wearing thin even for green eyed, unmarried Liam. Andy on the other hand, definitely missed his wife.
Marla reminded me of an easy going flower child. Her mother was a little strange and mentioned a realm where a lover awaited Marla there. Add to that the dreams that plagued Marla and I understood how Marla went along pretty much with everything that was presented to her. Then again, the elfsbane might have had something to do with it.
I loved how the banfeiah and bandoch were woven into the story. I’m a sucker for unicorns and hearing the tale of it added to my belief that Marla was the one. I know that Elfin Delights was the one story I’m glad I didn’t miss. I don't think you should either.
