A Caress of Twilight (Meredith Gentry Novels)by Laurell K Hamilton
Synopses & Reviews
I am Princess Meredith, heir to a throne — if I can stay alive long enough to claim it.
After eluding relentless assassination attempts by Prince Cel, her cousin and rival for the Faerie crown, Meredith Gentry, Los Angeles private eye, has a whole new set of problems. To become queen, she must bear a child before Cel can father one of his own. But havoc lies on the horizon: people are dying in mysterious, frightening ways, and suddenly the very existence of the place known as Faerie is at grave risk. So now, while she enjoys the greatest pleasures of her life attempting to conceive a baby with the warriors of her royal guard, she must fend off an ancient evil that could destroy the very fabric of reality. And that?s just her day job....
"This genre blending seems to work; Hamilton has already achieved New York Times bestsellerdom." Library Journal
"[A] sizzling new series that blends supernatural fantasy with detective adventure and hot sex." Publishers Weekly
"There is enough romance, action, fantasy and adventure to keep lovers of all genres satiated." Harriet Klausner, Allscifi.com
"I've never read a writer with a more fertile imagination." Diana Gabaldon, author of the Outlander series
"Private dick/Faerie princess Meredith Gentry returns in this faux-noir sequel to A Kiss of Shadows....Meredith ends as the Princess of Flesh and Blood, not yet with child, still babbling that overripe moonspeak ('I smelled roses, and blood appeared on my wrist as if by the prick of thorns')." Kirkus Reviews
Faerie princess Meredith Gentry is heir to a throne--if she can stay alive long enough to claim it. Her cousin, Prince Cel, is determined to see that she doesn't. As long as they both live, they are in a race: Whichever one of them reproduces first gets the throne.
