All people have problems, most people don't have all of them happening on the same day. Her boss giving her two weeks' notice, her landlord notifying her of a rent hike starting next year, and now a raging stomach bug, Isla Weir is having the worst day ever. When a doctor picks her up from the pavement after she faints, and she stares into his velvety brown eyes, Isla isn't sure if her luck is turning or if she's just hallucinating from lack of fluids.
Dr. Parker Coles cannot take another holiday with his mother nagging him to marry and have a family or, at a minimum, introduce a woman to them for once. But his girlfriend just broke up with him, and there is no time to get another. Then a woman faints at his feet, and a plan takes shape. Convince this woman to pose as his ex for Thanksgiving dinner, and he will return the favor. It works, too, right up until his ex shows up for dessert.
Sparkle, Isla's sassy fairy companion, is looking forward to a holiday feast at a riverside cottage even if Isla is the only human permitted by fairy law to see her. But when Sparkle gets sick, and Isla needs Parker's help, the violation of fairy protocol may cost them all dearly.
