From the Back Cover

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…

NOT YOUR ORDINARY FAERIE TALE

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.”

The romance of the story was great as was the erotic parts of the book.
Angels R Kids/Furkids
I love Christine Warren's books about the "Others" She has developed a magical series about shifters, fae, demons, vampires, and other creatures.
Nitengail
Although the books could be read individually, they are really best when absorbed as a whole.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've been a fan of Christine Warren's series of "The Others" from the beginning - but this latest novel fails to deliver... Overall the book is short with a lack of storyline. The characters are not very engaging and the intimate moments are definitely lacking (compared to other steamy scenes in her previous stories). There is absolutely no build-up of the relationship between the two main characters, which gives no anticiapation/excitement and no feeling of chemistry between the two. The main female character comes off very "bitchy" and not very likable. Also quite a few spelling errs?? which totally threw me off... I'm still hopeful that her next novel will be a triumphant come-back (ala ~ Missy & Graham in Big Bad Wolf)

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When your Queen gives you an assignment, regardless of your thoughts on the matter you go. For Luc Macanaw that meant crossing utilizing a portal to go from the land of the Fae to the human world and retrieve the Queen's nephew who decided to party on the other side.

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.

Not Your Ordinary Faerie Tale (Others Novels) Warren, Christine
Corrine knows all about inter-species mating and dating, after all two of her best friends have done so. So when her boss at the newspaper she works at asks her to look into an "elf" sighting she goes a bit on the defensive.
Of course being a romance the guy who is sent to Ithir (Earth) to take care of Fae's little problem is tall dark and sexy as all get out! So Lucifer (or Luc as he prefers to be called) is on a mission for his Queen and his mission is going to include Corinne the reporter who just happens to be looking for the same person as he is. Much to Luc's surprise he may have also found his Heartmate.

Christine Warren is a wonderful author ...sometimes...I have been reading her since she was publishing pure erotica and before many of her stories were expanded and "cleaned" up a bit for general publication. Since Christine stopped writing erotica many of her books have become a bit hit or miss for my taste. This one more misses more than hits, but not too horribly.

I have little patience for inner dialogue that includes huge amounts of angst. And thanks to Christine we seem to miss the angst but not the incessant inner-dialoguing. Luckily we only have to deal with that for the first 50% of the book. After that we have a better handle on the story, some action and of course romance. Although the story and the characters still seem to be somewhat lacking even in the latter 50%.

Unfortunately Christine's world doesn't include anything that constant readers of speculative fiction won't recognize and she makes the mistake of explaining things that you will find in just about any of these genre romances.
However, for a new reader of speculative fiction, this is a good thing and this book is a excellent one to start you on your path to learning about the Fae, the Shape Changers and the Vampires etc.and the romances they have!

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.
