Series: Meredith Gentry Series, #5

I am Princess Meredith, heir to a throne of faerie. My day job, once upon a time, was as a private detective in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, princess has now become a full-time occupation.

My aunt, Queen Andais, will have it no other way. And so I am virtually a prisoner in faerie–trapped here with some of the realm’s most beautiful men to serve as my bodyguards . . . and my lovers. For I am compelled to conceive a child: an heir to succeed me on the throne. Yet after months of amazing sex with my consorts, there is still no baby. And no baby means no throne. The only certainty is death at the hands of my cousin Cel, or his followers, if I fail to conceive.

Now Mistral, Queen Andais’s new captain of the guard, has come to my bed–defying her and risking her terrible wrath in doing so. But even she will hesitate to punish him in jealous rage, because our joining has reawakened old magic, mystical power so ancient that no one stands against it and survives. Not even my strongest and most favored: my Darkness and my Killing Frost. Not even Mistral himself, my Storm Lord. But because Mistral has helped to bring this magic forth, he may live another day.

If I can reclaim control of the fey power that once was, there may be hope for me and my reign in faerie. I might yet quell the dark schemes and subterfuges surrounding me. Though shadows of obsession and conspiracy gather, I may survive.

I picked this book up because it is a series

What I liked the Most? The Sex (it doesn't bother me in this series the main plot line is that Merry must become pregnant before her cousin)

What I liked the Least? The timing - there's too much happening in a single "day"

Review: Merry and her guards are in the dead gardens where once an entire world complete with sun, moon and weather existed. Through sex, Merry & her "dates" make the land come alive again. Merry then finds herself in the Kingdom of the Sluagh - their kingdom is dead too but when she has sex with its king, it comes alive, but not to the darkness of the past.

Side note - there is a LOT of erotic sex in this book.

Recommended to: Someone who likes books with ALOT of sex

Best Quote: Once upon a time wasn't as long ago as it used to be.
