Professor Bryce MacLeod has devoted his entire life to environmentalism. But how effective can he be in saving the planet when he can’t even get his surly neighbor to separate his recycling?
Former Queen’s Enforcer Mal Kendrick doesn’t think his life could get any worse: he’s been exiled from Faerie with a cursed and useless right hand. When he’s not dodging random fae assassins in the Outer World, he’s going toe-to-toe with his tree-hugging neighbor. And when he discovers that the tree-hugger is really a druid, he’s certain the gods have it in for him—after all, there’s always a catch with druids. Then he’s magically shackled to the man and expected to instruct him in Supernatural 101.
All right, now things couldn’t possibly get worse.
Until a mysterious stranger offers a drunken Mal the chance to gain back all he’s lost—for a price. After Mal accepts, he discovers the real catch: an ancient secret that will change his and Bryce’s life forever.
Ah, what the hells. Odds are they won’t survive the week anyway.

"I absolutely loved this second book in the 'Fae Out of Water' series... 'The Druid Next Door' was chock full of intrigue, humor, banter and several steamy bits."
"If you are looking for an amazing Fae romance novel, The Druid Next Door by E.J. Russell is truly phenomenal... I cannot even begin to describe how fabulous this book was. I spent all day reading and was so absolutely depressed that it ended. Not that it didn’t feel complete but because I hated having to give up these characters!"
