Discover a unique eco-urban fantasy with a touch of romance


When Scottish water sprite, Cassie, volunteers for an anti-fracking protest, the last thing she expects is to find herself at odds with a druid. But with time running out for the local environment, she can’t afford to be distracted by the handsome hunk of a Highlander.


Intent on a minor act of sabotage, Cassie is totally unprepared to be caught in the cross-fire of a magical battle. Can she avert catastrophe? Or will she become the very agency of an ecological disaster?


"This quick read is sure to capture your attention from the start."


"A lovely short story set in my native Scotland, written by someone who obviously cares about our environment. Well written, with interesting characters that you want to learn more about."


"This is a simple, short story that grabs your attention from the first paragraph. Cassie is a sprite and although I haven’t read the first book in this series, Desprite Measures, I didn’t have any problem following along with the story, plot and character traits of those involved."


"There was a lot to love crammed into this short story."
