From Publishers Weekly
Princess Meredith NicEssus of the Unseelie Court finally reaches an elusive goal in Hamilton's seductive sixth Meredith Gentry paranormal romance (after 2006's Mistral's Kiss). Half-human, half-faerie, Meredith is a former L.A. PI whose current full-time job is trying to get pregnant—trying at least three times a day, in fact, mainly with her devoted retinue of sex-starved guards—to insure her ascendancy to the Unseelie throne of night. Unfortunately, her bedding schedule has been interrupted by Lady Caitrin of the Seelie Court, who claims she was raped by three of Meredith's guards. Meredith must protect her faithful retinue from the terrible wrath of her uncle, King Taranis of the Seelie Court, and defend herself from the dangerous desire Taranis harbors for her. Hamilton depicts Meredith's erotic adventures in her usual breathless, overheated style, but also reveals a deeper glimpse into Meredith's introspective side as she reflects on her favorite lover, Killing Frost, whose strange fate finds her re-evaluating the costs of being a future queen. (Oct.)

The Seelie court is more evil and twisted than the Unseelie court. Taranis is insane and someone needs to kill him or get him off the throne already.
You can't help but laugh during moments of this book. But there are moments where you want to cry, you want to scream, you want to be happy, or you say WTF.
If you don't like reading about polyamory, explicit sex, kinky sex, or totally bats**t crazy people, don't bother picking this book up.
If you have a rape trigger, or an incest trigger don't pick this book up.
While there are some really fun and light hearted things that happen in this story, mostly this one is really dark and even somewhat depressing.
I gave it 4 stars because there is some character and plot development in the series here that I just absolutely loved.
It didn't get 5 stars because of some of the darker and creepier implications of things we see or at least imagine we see happening, And the ending was... not to my liking. I know the next book will likely fix it, but it was just unpleasant and did not make me happy.
Merry and her men are finally back in LA. But that doesn't stop the threats coming her way now does it? Hell-no. Freaking King is gone mad and wants Merry for his wife, the Queen is gone sadistic on one of the guards because she didn't talk with Merry first about rumors, Frost....dear lord, Frost....OMG!! I can't even handle it!
Such a great read. Some great news in this book! But of course it isn't just a simple thing...it's gotta be all complex and s***, lol.
As with most of LKH's work, I want to really to just spill the beans about everything that's happened, but for those that haven't read it yet, I really really really don't want to give away any spoilers.
Let's just say, very emotional book. Very good book. Very, well, just a great continuation of Merry's life.
SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT:
Trigger warning: rape. The book ends on a curious and really unpleasant note and then the whole subplot started there is almost entirely lost in the next book. I think Hamilton lost her way a bit- I really enjoyed the beginning of the series but the end is just such a let down.
