Publisher Comments:

New York Times bestselling author Christine Warren returns to the scintillating world of the Others—where even the strangest love stories start with “Once upon a hunk”…

After her two best friends marry a blood-sucking vampire and furry-faced werewolf, Corinne DAlessandro is making a vow of her own: NO interspecies dating. But when her editor asks her to investigate “leprechaun” sightings, the sassy New York reporter finds herself on the trail of the hottest story of the year—and the sexiest man alive…

NOT YOUR ORDINARY FAERIE TALE

His name is Luc, and hes as gorgeous as any Prince Charming in any bedtime story. Theres just one problem: Hes not human, hes fae. A captain of the Fae Queens Guard, Luc is on a dangerous mission—and he could use the help of a certain leprechaun-hunting reporter. But when their two worlds collide, the sparks begin to fly. If Corinne and Luc cant control their lust—and focus on the villains in this story—their faerie-tale romance wont end happily ever after…

“In this world…theres no shortage of sexy sizzle.”

—Romantic Times BOOKreviews

Review:

"With wit that never quite hits its mark and insufficient fantasy glitter, Warren's 12th novel of the Others (after May 2011's Black Magic Woman) is in fact a very ordinary Fae-meets-girl story. Reporter Corinne D'Allesandro and Luc Macinaw, head of Queen Mab's Guard, collaborate on a haphazard search around Manhattan for the queen's nephew. Luc is shocked that Fate has chosen him a human heartmate, but Corinne's happy to have the sexy attention and willing to suffer the teasing of her already Other-mated friends, even if Luc never stops being vaguely insufferable. Luc's only supernatural characteristics are pointy ears and a tendency to glow after the clumsily described sex ('like soul A and soul B matched on some sort of elemental plane'), and the plot is painfully obvious and unengaging. Only longtime fans will be interested in this installment." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Our Review [by Michelle L. Olson - LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha]:
This book came up in my Amazon recommendations list. I snatched it up because it looked good, only to read it and find that it was the best Fae book I had ever read.
Christine Warren is an amazing story teller. Her characters are witty, strong, independent, and identifiable and her story is well crafted and fluid.
I found out after starting this book that it is actually the 12th of the Others series, but I wasn't lost at all (though I did read somewhere that this was actually a rewrite of a story done with Ellora's Cave and therefore was more standalone than the other of the series).
Corinne is a reporter with multiple friends who have become involved with or married members of the supernatural community. She has basically sworn that while she loves them, she will never be one to date outside of her species.
Luc is the captain of the guard for Queen Mab of the Summer Court. He is sent to the human realm to find and bring home the queen's nephew, Seoc, before he can cause too much trouble and spill the secret of the Others.
The minute Luc sees Corinne he feels something he has never felt before, and 1 touch is all it takes for him to know that it's more than just idle attraction. Once some things are brought to light, Luc can no longer deny that Corinne is his heartmate and he knows that he'll do anything to keep her by his side.
Corinne plays coy and puts on a good poker face, but she can't deny the feelings that Luc imparts. After teaming up to find Seoc together, thus getting her story for her boss, keeping her friends safe and helping Luc with his mission, one things leads to another and she is helpless to do anything but feel.
LITERAL ADDICTION gives Not your Ordinary Faerie Tale 5 skulls and would recommend it to everyone - Paranormal Romance lovers, Urban Fantasy readers, and anyone who likes strong, witty female leads, sexy, alpha, sensitive male leads, and a story with just enough twists and turns to keep you engaged from the 1st to the last page.
