It's not easy being a faerie. Holly would know. She's the laughing stock of Fae, useless at magic and has wings that never cooperate. She can't understand why a high-born faerie she hardly knows would want to marry her because she certainly doesn't want to marry him. The mortal world looks far more enticing.

Being a vampire bites. Crippled with guilt over his part in the de

This book had me on the edge of my seat throughout much of it. Couldn't put it down! The romance was between Jay, a werewolf, Dominic, a vampire, and Holly, a Fae. I liked the main characters and supporting cast. There were so many twists and turns, and several scary bad guys. It was on the steamy side, kind of like Lora Leigh. The ending was a surprise in a good way. Overall, a very good read.

This book can be read as a standalone or as part of the series. Books in this series include:

The book was good and I'm glad to have read it because I was in an emotional uproar over tattling on a housemate for having a BOY IN HER ROOM. After reflection, I feel okay about it because I tried to talk to her about it before and she swore it wouldn't happen again... and it did. Especially since the landlady's rules say no males on the premises and I live here BECAUSE of that rule (I'd been raped in another shared-living situation and freak the f*ck out when men are in my home). So, yeah.

Dominic and Jay make an interesting couple. Both laden with guilt from their past they were made to be there for each other. Oh and one is a vampire and the other a werewolf.

At a mysterious party, they meet the woman to complete them, Holly. She is a faerie that makes a mess of everything; can't fly, do simple spells and gets lost easily.

Their lives are intertwined in faerie politics, werewolf harassment, and a devious plot for revenge. Through it all their love seems to be the greatest power.

The story is nice, the plot is well written. The three of them are really compatible with each other, but there are unresolved issues and questions that must be answered, like: Why didn't Holly continue to find her sister so that she can help her?, What really is a Raedaer, how complicated her powers will be?, What will happen in the fae world at the end? Why didn't Syren found out what happen to Dominic and his brother, but in the first three books he knows and helps his children when they are ...more
Really loved this one. The main characters are good and it was an entertaining read. would love to find out more of Holly's family dynamic with the demon grandfather - so funny. Would totally read a follow up book that was just about these three and how Holly learns to use more of her powers, the possible baby/babies and how Jay becomes alpha of his pack, etc... Now don't get me wrong some of these questions may be answered in the next book that i haven't read yet, but i am on it:) I also want ...more

Like all of Barbara Elsborg's books, Jay, Dominic, and Holly are a perfect blend of sweet and sexy. The paranormal elements at play never take away from what is the core of the story--three characters in the process of healing themselves, and each other.

Barbara also puts her own unique spin on vampire, werewolf, anf faery lore, making her entire Trueblood series a Do Not Miss for fans of paranormal erotic romance.

Starts as all about Dominic & Jay and sex, then a story comes along. Plenty of laughs, good mystery. Felt Holly was a little gullible, but she's likeable at the same time. New set of characters again, with some tie in to the previous books towards the end. Nice ending.

Barbara Elsborg lives in Kent in the south of England. She always wanted to be a spy, but having confessed to everyone without them even resorting to torture, she decided it was not for her. Vulcanology scorched her feet. A morbid fear of sharks put paid to marine biology. So instead, she spent several years successfully selling cyanide.
