Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"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...

Review:

"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...still babbling that overripe moonspeak..." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"More attention to the detective motif might have made the story more fun, but steamy prose and Meredith's obsessive personal conflicts should keep the faithful turning the pages." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"If you've had enough of novels with plots that make sense and characters you can relate to, try A Caress of Twilight." Library Journal

Review:

"There is enough romance, action, fantasy and adventure to keep lovers of all genres satiated." Harriet Klausner, Allscifi.com

Review:

"I've never read a writer with a more fertile imagination." Diana Gabaldon, author of the Outlander series
