"Funny story of myth and legend on the Isle of Man."

Margaid sucks as a leanan sidhe, really, she does. In all her centuries, she has still to drain the blood of her first man. Her cauldron sits empty in her living room, as it has since she was first created. Now, Mannan beg mac y Leir, the God of the Sea, Trickster God and God of Transformation—and Margaid's father—has scolded Margaid. He's even threatened her with turning her into a kelpie if she doesn't fill her cauldron with a mortal's blood. So she's determined to find a mortal and goes to the surface from her cave under the sea. When she rises from the water, she finds a man and quite a good-looking one at that.

Andrew came to the Isle of Man with his mother and little brother on vacation so his mother could find her roots. Unfortunately, the airlines lost his bag with his contacts in them, so when he's approached by a woman, he can't really see her. He decides to follow her home anyway and jumps in the sea to find it freezing. The woman, however, looks comfortable. So he follows her to a cave and sees a cauldron in the middle of her living room. Margaid approaches him and puts her arms around him. When he finds out his blood is supposed to fill the cauldron, he calls a halt to the whole seduction. Since he does, Margaid tells him she is now his slave for the rest of his life. There is one caveat—he is the only one who can see her or talk with her.

So he leaves her home, and she's following him. No way can he have a slave. He's from America and slavery is illegal.

Will Andrew ever get his contacts in and actually see Margaid? Will she end up being his slave for the rest of his life? What will happen if Andrew does manage to get a good look at Margaid? Will he fall in love with her beauty?

A FINE CAULDRON OF FISH is a very funny story of gods and sidhe on the Isle of Man. Cornelia Amiri vividly brings this story to life, blending humor and legends together. Have to admit, I loved Andrew's younger brother, he's really funny and determined. The whole bit of Andrew trying to have Margaid committed to the local mental institution is hilarious. This is just a quick, fun read and one I highly recommend.
