Detroit artist Meagan Kelly has had a strong sixth sense all her life, but that doesn't mean the gorgeous stranger's crazy story—that she's a half-elf, half human heiress—is true. But Meagan can't deny the evidence of her own eyes—he's Fae. A tall, blond, handsome, pointy-eared elf—and a man she just can't get enough of.
Ric Thornhill's assignment just got a lot more complicated. The more time he spends with Meagan, the harder it is to see her as a...more
The main character's name is Meagan and she is just a regular old artist that's living in Detroit and she has some weird dreams every once in awhile. When she has a strange dream that's not her usual dose of crazy she gets a little freaked out...more
There were many erotic sex scenes in this book and the sex was absolutely necessary to the storyline. It was pretty damn hot, too. I'm just not sure it was really necessary for Megan and Ric to have sex so many times. Two or three times would have made the point without making me want...more
I picked this up originally because of the title - I mean the Fae [who one always imagine in green leafy glades or dancing under the moon] and Detroit which is perceived as the capital of the rustbelt and poster child for urban blight? Really???
Yeah, really. The author made it work and work well. I loved the hero [who doesn't love a Fae bard with cool friends?] and the...more

Meagan Kelley reminds you of the girl next door. She's an artist who doesn't get out much and doesn't remember the last boyfriend she had. Did I mention that Meagan is half-fey but knows nothing about it??? Adopted as a baby, she spends all her time painting and listening to her favorite music artist Ric Thornhill.
Ric Thornhill is your basic Elf musician, who also happens to be a spy for the Seelie Queen. He spends most of his time in the human realm. Ric's newest assignment is to find the lost,...more
When he meets her for the first time she’s Meagan, an artist who teaches others the craft. Something zings between them, and he has a feeling he’s found the woman he seeks. The other problem is, he knows he’s not going to be able to just take her back to Underhill without losing his heart....more
According to me its a five star story:
story start with a search for a missing fea in detroit city.
Meagen Kelly is an artist how is always intuitive skills , but don't know that she is not human, its all confusing for her, with in few day her life change from top to toe, where in her life there was no fun, no change and all of a sudden after an entry of one handsome man in her life and every thing start changing, few people try to kill her, she become ri...more
This was a really interesting read. Most of the time the story revolved around the vote at court, so the world building was no as in-depth as I would have liked. It was an interesting story and entertaining just more of a steady flow than fast paced.
Meagan is actually a really awesome chick, I love that she did not go all damsel in distress and helped save herself. I would definitely be interested in hearing more about her powers. I loved...more
We fire this one up with a pretty standard urban fantasy/paranormal romance trope: surprise, heroine! You'r...more
Authors, editors, and publishers often wonder how people come across books, so I’ll tell you how I found Cindy Spencer Pape. Like many with an eReader, I am not wild about agency pricing for eBooks, so I have been sniffing through the good indie presses. There are differences in tone and pace at the indies - it seems to me that my made-for-i...more
Ric has a certain sexy something that worked for me. He's been given a tough task by the Queen and it's made even tougher when he falls for Meagan. I liked the guy. He's blindsided by his attraction to her and he's unable to keep away. Meagan has a lot to deal with once she learns who...more
If we could have gotten more pages to expand on the friends & family relationships between Meagan, Alaraic, Aidan, her best friend Jace (?) and his potential love interest who is both werewolf and seems born into a crime family, etc., etc. it would have really made this book. The plot as such was pretty pedestrian for my personal tas...more
It read like a first draft of a great idea for a book by a writer just starting out, even though it wasn't.
Romance was rushed. Very 'love at first sight' for no reason. Not a fan of those types of books. I'm ok with lust at first sight, but love at first sight witho...more
I give it two stars since I actually managed to finish the book, but the story would have been much better suited as a regency romance.
That said, the sex scenes made me laugh out loud (at them, not along with them). Also, the a...more
Ric and Meagan must fight not only for their lives, but for the fae city and society. The imagery of the fae world is fantastic. A pleasan...more
