I am Princess Meredith, heir to a throne of faerie. My day job, once upon a time, was as a private detective in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, princess has now become a full-time occupation.My aunt, Queen Andais, will have it no other way. And so I am virtually a prisoner in faerie–trapped here with some of the realm’s most beautiful men to serve as my bodyguards . . . and my lovers. For I am compelled to conceive a child: an heir to succeed me on the throne. Yet after months of amazing sex with my consorts, there is still no baby. And no baby means no throne. The only certainty is death at the hands of my cousin Cel, or his followers, if I fail to conceive.Now Mistral, Queen Andais’s new captain of the guard, has come to my bed–defying her and risking her terrible wrath in doing so. But even she will hesitate to punish him in jealous rage, because our joining has reawakened old magic, mystical power so ancient that no one stands against it and survives. Not even my strongest and most favored: my Darkness and my Killing Frost. Not even Mistral himself, my Storm Lord. But because Mistral has helped to bring this magic forth, he may live another day.If I can reclaim control of the fey power that once was, there may be hope for me and my reign in faerie. I might yet quell the dark schemes and subterfuges surrounding me. Though shadows of obsession and conspiracy gather, I may survive.From the Hardcover edition.

This is another re-listen for me. It is a pretty quick read/listen. This one takes place in fairy. It is another book with a large amount of sex in it. This is not surprising as the entire plot of the series is for Merry to get pregnant.
I re-read the Merry Gentry series during the summer. I had read it for the first time some time in 2007 or 2008, before the last two books were out. There are elements I like in this series - why else would I re-read it? The way Merry isn't a pampered fairy princess, but someone who tries to make...
The next story in Merry Gentry's series. Her power feeds into more of the men around her and she struggles to comprehend and control her power. Merry is getting quite overpowered and I'm starting to understand her Aunt and her annoyance with her. I prefer the honestly of this series to the Anita ...
Just like with the Anita Blake book name Micah, Mistral is a name, not something I can make fun of.
