Dylan Stonehouse is upset when Constance Vandermeer chooses to marry the upstart Richard Niedner over him. Dylan, whose family is the largest shareholder of the Stonehouse Department Store chain, expects trouble after Richard marries Constance and obtains the proxy to control the Vandermeer shares of stock in the department store chain.
On the eve of the nuptials, Richard starts drinking by himself at a Stonehouse estate. He begins to talk to the painting of Seraphina just like he did when his parents died when he was six years old. This time things are different as he magically draws Seraphina from the portrait into a real body. She explains that she is a half-breed pixie, trapped by her half-brother inside the painting. For freeing her, she grants him three wishes as her pixie magic allows her to manipulate luck in a Rube Goldberg sort of way. As she works on his wishes, Dylan and Seraphina fall in love. However, once she completes his second wish, he will be married to Constance.
Pixies feel like another humanoid species in the ultra-talented writings of Ingrid Weaver. The story line is humorous, especially the gyrations needed to complete the wishes. Anyone who dreams of reading an enjoyable, whimsical romantic fantasy has gotten their wish granted with A WISH AND A DREAM.
