Exhausted by the politics and intrigues of the Seelie
court, Fiona decides a brief holiday is in order. Well
aware that visits to the mortal world are strictly
forbidden, Fiona nonetheless sneaks away and transports
herself through a Fae portal into New York's Central Park.
A few drinks, some Thai food, a club or two and back home
before anyone is the wiser. These vacations are something
Fiona has done many times before and always without
incident. Only this time something goes horribly wrong.
Fiona exits the gate in the human world right into the arms
of a demon who seems to be there waiting expressly for her.
A 300-year-old fairy princess, her aunt no other than Queen
Mab, Fiona is quite able to take care of herself. But here
on the mortal plane, without her fairy magic, Fiona is no
match for the demon soldier.
Tobias Walker is beyond exhausted. Patrolling Manhattan day
and night, he's in charge of keeping the Others in his
district policed and in check. And he's one cranky
werewolf. Tricky negotiations are currently underway
between the humans and the Others, and it's imperative that
nothing happens to upset the peace before a treaty can be
brokered. When Fiona comes hurtling through the gateway and
into the arms of a demon, Tobias knows he won't be getting
any sleep any time soon.
Tobias wants nothing more than to get Fiona back on her own
side of the Faerie Gate, but someone in the faerie world
closed the portal to her and is just as determined to keep
her in the mortal realm. Tobias and his pack are busy
enough keeping a lid on the human/Other politics; they have
no desire to be drawn into a conflict with the Fae.
However, there seems to be a master plan that's poised to
have both worlds headed for an all-out war. Without a clue
as to who all the players are, the pair race to unravel the
plot that puts both their worlds at risk.
This is a terrific read. Sexy and sassy, Fiona is an A-list
heroine -- as full of herself and confident as a faerie
princess can be. Even though he's his pack's beta male,
Tobias is nothing short of an Alpha hero, trying to keep
Fiona at arm's length for both their sakes, even while
lusting after her. Playful and smart, SHE'S NO FAIRIE
PRINCESS is one fine Halloween read.
Queen Mab's niece, Fiona, has long been bored to tears by
the intrigues of Court life. She'd prefer to cut loose at
a punk club, knock back a few Thai beers, and hook up with
a likely lad of similar interests. But when Fiona goes
AWOL, she only gets as far as Manhattan's Inwood Park
before a nasty demon nearly puts a permanent crimp in her
plansâ€”and a dark stranger sparks her desire...
All work and no play make Tobias Walker one cranky
werewolf. After six months of doing his part to keep the
peace during the delicate negotiations between the Others
and humankind, he'd like nothing more than a good night's
sleepâ€”preceded by an enthusiastic mating session. The
alluring woman he rescues in the park might be the answer
to his most lustful prayers, but only if they can both
stay alive long enough to find out who wants her dead and
Now, Fiona and Tobias must unravel a tangled web of
treachery that spans branches of the Fae, Other, and
mortal worlds, all the while falling into a dangerous
attraction that could be the beginning of a beautiful
friendshipâ€”or the end for them both...
