A Kiss Of Shadows
My name is Meredith Gentry, but of course it's not my real name. I dare not ever whisper my true name after dark for fear that one hushed word will travel over the night winds to the soft ear of my aunt, the Queen of Air and Darkness. She wants me dead. I don't even know why...
I fled the high court of Faerie three years ago and have been in hiding ever since. As Merry Gentry, I am a private investigator for the Grey Detective Agency: Supernatural Problems, Magical Solutions. My magical skills, scorned at the courts of Faerie, are valued in the human world. Even by human standards, my magic isn't flashy, which is fine by me. Flashy attracts attention, and I can't afford that.
Rumour has it that I am dead. Not quite. I am Princess Meredith NicEssus. To speak that name after dark is to call down a knock upon your door from a hand that can kill you with a touch. I have been careful, but not careful enough. The shadows have found me, and they are going to take me back home, one way or another.
So the running is over. But the fighting has just begun...
A Caress Of Twilight
Most of you will know me as Merry Gentry, private investigator, but my real name is Princess Meredith NicEssus and I am heir to a throne - if I can stay alive long enough to claim it.
My cousin, Prince Cel, is determined to see that I don't. As long as we both live, we are in a race for the crown: whoever reproduces first gets the throne. The men of my royal guard - frighteningly skilful warriors - have become my lovers, auditioning for the role of future king and father of my child. Of course, they must still protect me - for unlike most of the Fey, I am part human and very mortal.
But now, in the City of Angels, people are dying in mysterious and frightening ways. What the human police don't realize is that the killer is hunting the Fey as well. I sense that chaos is close at hand; the very existence of the place known as Faerie is at grave risk. So while I enjoy the greatest of pleasures with my guardians, I know I must soon confront an ancient evil that could destroy the very fabric of reality - yours, and mine. And that's just the day job...
Seduced By Moonlight
I am Meredith Gentry, P.I. and Princess Merry, heir to the throne of Fairie. Now there are those among me who whisper I am more. They fear me even as they protect me. And who can blame them? I’ve awakened the dazzling magic that’s slumbered in them for thousands of years. But the thing is, I can’t figure out why.
My aunt, the Queen of Air and Darkness, is no longer distracted by her usual sadistic hobbies. Her obsession has turned unwaveringly to me. The mission to get me pregnant and beat my cousin Prince Cel to the crown is taking longer than expected. Even though I spend each night with the Queen’s Ravens, my immortal guards, no child has come of our decadent pleasures. But something else is happening. My magic courses through me uncontrollably. And as I lock my half-mortal body with their full-Sidhe blooded ones, the power surges like never before.
It all began with the chalice. I dreamed of it, and it appeared, cool and hard, beside me when I awoke. My guards know the ancient relic well—its disappearance ages ago stripped them of their vital powers. But it is here with us now. My touch resonates with its force, and they’re consumed with it, their Sidhe essences lit up by it. But even as they cherish me for this unexpected gift, there are those who loathe me for it. Me, a mongrel, only half fey and part mortal. The Unseelie court has suffered for so long, and there are some who would not have it weakened further by an impure queen. My enemies grow in number every day. But they do not know what I am capable of. Nor, for that matter, do I.
Stroke Of Midnight
I am Meredith Gentry, P.I., solving cases in Los Angeles, far from the peril and deception of my real home - because I am also Princess Meredith, heir to the darkest throne Faerie has to offer. The Unseelie Court infuses me with it's power. But at what price does such magic come? How much of my human side will I have to give up, and how much of the sinister side of faerie will I have to embrace? To sit on a throne that has ruled through bloodshed and violence for centuries, I might have to become that which I dread the most.
Enemies watch my every move. My cousin Cel strives to have me killed even now from his prison cell. But not all the assassination attempts are his. Some Unseelie nobles have waited centuries for my aunt Andais, Queen of Air and Darkness, to become weak enough that she might be toppled from the throne. Enemies unforeseen move against us - enemies who would murder the least among us.
The threat will drive us to allow human police into Faerie for the first time in our history. I need my allies now more than ever, especially since fate will lead me into the arms of Mistral, Master of Storms, the queen's new captain of her guard. Our passion will reawaken powers long forgotten among the warriors of the sidhe. Pain and pleasure await me - and danger, as well, for some at the court seek only death.
I will find new joys with the butterfly-winged demi-fey. My guards and I will show all of faerie that violence and sex are as popular among the sidhe as they are among the lesser fey of our court. The Darkness will weep, and Frost will comfort him. The gentlest of my guards will find new strength, and break my heart. Passions undreamed of await us - and my enemies gather, for the future of both courts of faerie begins to unravel.
