New York Times bestselling author Christine Warren returns to the scintillating world of the Others―where even the strangest love stories start with "Once upon a hunk"…
After her two best friends marry a blood-sucking vampire and furry-faced werewolf, Corinne D'Alessandro is making a vow of her own: NO interspecies dating. But when her editor asks her to investigate "leprechaun" sightings, the sassy New York reporter finds herself on the trail of the hottest story of the year―and the sexiest man alive…

His name is Luc, and he's as gorgeous as any Prince Charming in any bedtime story. There's just one problem: He's not human, he's fae. A captain of the Fae Queen's Guard, Luc is on a dangerous mission―and he could use the help of a certain leprechaun-hunting reporter. But when their two worlds collide, the sparks begin to fly. If Corinne and Luc can't control their lust―and focus on the villains in this story―their faerie-tale romance won't end happily ever after…
"In this world…there's no shortage of sexy sizzle."

Luc is a leader who always takes his assignment seriously letting nothing deter him from his objective. So meeting Corinne D'Alessandro and being thrown off his game is a shocker he never saw coming. Luc should not be attracted to Corinne for pity sake she is human. The other problem is she is chasing down the same object from a different perspective though as the reporter assigned to figure out what is going on. Corinne already knows about the non-humans on earth staying under the radar and swore to stay away from a relationship with any of them. She never expected any spark with a non-human but Luc is definitely pushing every go after him button she has with some red flags but mostly passion on all fronts. Could they have something together or is this an attraction Luc has conquered up from his bag magic?
The task is difficult for the two of them even working together as the witnesses start showing up murdered or missing. It is difficult to trace a lead under the best of circumstances but not even having a verification of the facts makes it almost impossible. The Others existence must be kept a secret so the pursuit becomes even more critical when more people start to notice the unusual activity but Luc knows Corinne has the same agenda and trust is not an issue.
This book is so much more than demons with secrets it is a romantic interlude that will enchant as well as romance you. With a well-defined and detailed storyline, this book makes for a great read, as you are able to feel the passion and the danger all at the same time.

Our Review [by Michelle L. Olson - LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha]:
This book came up in my Amazon recommendations list. I snatched it up because it looked good, only to read it and find that it was the best Fae book I had ever read.
Christine Warren is an amazing story teller. Her characters are witty, strong, independent, and identifiable and her story is well crafted and fluid.
I found out after starting this book that it is actually the 12th of the Others series, but I wasn't lost at all (though I did read somewhere that this was actually a rewrite of a story done with Ellora's Cave and therefore was more standalone than the other of the series).
Corinne is a reporter with multiple friends who have become involved with or married members of the supernatural community.Read more ›
I get a lot of books for review.. most are dull, some informative, a lot are so lost in 5/6 syllable wordage it takes a lot of coffee to get through them. So , for relaxation I read
Fantasy and what a rich world it is. Faerie is not the sweet Victorian world of Titania and Peter Pan. There are some nasty elements in that world and you'll come across them in this book. The concept of The Others is Ms Warrens on going love affair with fantasy.. long may she continue, I'm a devoted fan.. but PLEASE.. where is 'Fur for All' ?? Are you feeling low in spirits (?).. what to laugh, enjoy some sexy bits, and how to tell one Fae from another, kick off your shoes ladies, pour a glass of wine and enjoy this Faery Tale.
