Back Cover Summary:

"My name is Meredith Gentry, but of course it’s not my real name. I dare not even whisper my true name after dark for fear that one hushed word will travel over the night winds to the soft ear of my aunt, the Queen of the Air and Darkness. She wants me dead. I don’t even know why."

Meredith Gentry, Princess of the high court of Faerie, is posing as a human in Los Angeles, living as a P.I. specializing in supernatural crime. But now the Queen’s assassin has been dispatched to fetch her back–whether she likes it or not. Suddenly Meredith finds herself a pawn in her dreaded aunt’s plans. The job that awaits her: enjoy the constant company of the most beautiful immortal men in the world. The reward: the crown–and the opportunity to continue to live. The penalty for failure: death.

Reviewer Comments on Rating:

The plot and characters start off as interesting and was enough to keep me curious to read more. The book involved a lot of sex scenes but I found them rather dull. The author did not use a wide variety of vocabulary or imagination so many of them begun to feel the same. While I find the idea for the overall story line interesting and with potential, the writing I found repetitive in the author's use of words as well as the same sentiments being frequently repeated. The constant use of the same words made the book a little tedious.
