The last thing Quinn Painton expected to find in her backyard was the most jaw droppingly, handsome man she’d ever laid eyes on.  Her libido took the lead over logic while Quinn considered all the wonderful things they could do together.  Why did the hot, naked guy have to ruin everything by speaking?  Now Quinn had to question not only her sanity, but his as well.

Reece Oaks has more problems than the raging hangover he wakes up with.  His mind is a jumbled mess, but his body has no trouble remembering the sable haired beauty who seemed upset.  Apparently Reece had found his mate and possibly lost her at the same time. 

The attraction is there immediately between Quinn and Reece, as always with mates.  Unfortunately, Reece rubs Quinn the wrong way and she’s hesitant to believe everything he says.  After finally accepting the fact that Reece wasn’t crazy, Quinn absorbed all it meant to be his mate. 

The Dryad in Her Pool is a quick read with a fine balance of humor and heat.  Reece was a bit of a pig when he was drunk, so I loved the wisecracks Quinn shared with him.  I love a strong female character who isn’t afraid to unleash her wrath, even when she feels vulnerable.  Don’t misunderstand though by thinking that Reece wasn’t an honorable guy because he was.  He just wasn’t very good at holding his tree sap.  I giggled out loud after reading some of the things he’d done while drunk.  I had fun visualizing some of the events, and I know readers will agree.
