Queen Mab's niece, Fiona, has long been bored to tears by the intrigues of Court life. She'd prefer to cut loose at a punk club, knock back a few Thai beers, and hook up with a likely lad of similar interests. But when Fiona goes AWOL, she only gets as far as Manhattan's Inwood Park before a nasty demon nearly puts a permanent crimp in her plans--and a dark stranger sparks ...more

Although this one had all the elements that usually intrigues me in a PNR (paranormal romance), much of the book felt flat and I'm not sure why.

Fiona is a High Sidhe Faerie Princess and niece to Queen Mab of the Seelie Court as well as niece to Dinouu of the Unseelie court. In Warren's world, this puts her in direct line to inherit the throne of either as neither Mab not Dinouu have children. She' not to keen on court intrigue so she breaks Queen Mab's rule on no traveling to the earthly realm f
She's No Faerie Princess
3.5 Stars

Tired of the intrigue at her aunt Mab's court, Fiona is in dire need of a vacation. Upon her arrival in New York, Fiona is attacked by a demon and rescued by Tobias Walker, a cranky werewolf with better things to do than babysit a faerie princess. In the midst of the negotiations surrounding the unveiling of the Others to humanity, Walker and Fiona must deal not only with rampaging demons and a summoner with nefarious plans for the fae and humanity but wi

I LOVED it (again ;) lol)!!!!!!!! The sex was hot hot HOT!!!, the men were delicious, Fiona was feisty, the action was kick-ass, and the sex, sweet jesus the sex, lets just say no one writes better hot love scenes them Christine Warren!!! ;)
Although I must say that while I loved Walker very very much, Graham still holds my heart above all others and to find out in this that he and Missy have two little boys now made me very happy! :) Walker got a little on my nerves in a few early parts of the b

I seem to be finding a pattern in these "paranormal romance" novels.

Take (1) girl (who usual doesn't know she is part vampire/werewolf/other because she is an orphan/changeling) and throw her into the seedy underbelly of an alternative universe that lives right along side us (usually in a big city like New York or Boston).

Take (1) boy (who is a full blooded warrior of said-other society (usually vampire/werewolf or combination of the two)) and allow him to stumble upon girl. Oh he has to have

Really enjoyed this book. Loved the spunky, hard headed Herione, Fiona, the Fae Princess. And our hunky and sexy leading Lupine, Toby, the Alpha's second of the Silverback Clan.
These 2 make a strange love match, more like fire/ice or love/hate. But there's never a dull moment with Fiona around.
This series is getting better each moment and the best moment in this book is when we meet a dark character names Rule...
He's sexy, dark, demon and in the next book he's our leading man.

A Fun Read With Two Characters To Cheer For
Christine Warren's second book in The Others series is a better balanced and fleshed out novel than Wolf at the Door, with a stronger narrative and creative world building that enhances the paranormal romance novel's base plot sufficiently enough to lift the book out of the doldrums of been-there-read-that and give it a breath of freshness, even though the world of the series isn't the most original (creatures of myth and legend taking steps to come out

Okay, the title sucks. But don't let the title scare you away. This is a funny, sexy, involved story that's pretty well-written. The main character, Fiona, is the niece of Queen Mab, the ruler of the Seelie Course of Faerie. She is bored with court and all of the intrigues that are a part of being a possible heir, so Fiona sneaks through the gate into the mortal world, popping out in Central Park. Instead of getting to eat hot dogs and hang out at punk clubs, though, Fiona is almost immediately ...more

I guess one of the reasons that I love Christine Warren’s book so much is that her “world” is populated with so many wonderful paranormal entities. There are Were-creatures, Vampires, Fae, Demons, Fiends and a wide assortment of humans that interact with them. Ms. Warren also has a wicked sense of humor and the ability to make you cry when there is heartbreak. I loved the interaction between Walker, a werewolf, and Fiona, a high Fae princess. Fiona is a good time girl just wanting to have some f ...more

I read this on the trusted recommendation of fellow romance audiobook readers, and it didn't disappoint! With master narrator Kate Reading at the helm, I knew it would be good.

In this story, Faerie Princess Fiona decides to slip away from Faerie and the pressure of the Faerie Court ruled by her aunt, Queen Mab, and take a little punk vacation in Manhattan. She wasn't counting on the demon at the gate trying to eat her heart out, or the Lupine Tobias Walker rescuing her and stealing said heart in

She's No Faerie Princess was pretty good. Fiona is a Fae princess who is bored and wants to take a vacation. She decides to visit the human world to do this, even though it's forbidden by her aunt, Queen Mab. Walker is a beta lupine of the Silverback Clan. The Others are brokering basic rights with the humans before they are introduced to the populace. Walker is currently on patrol to make sure none of the Others get out of hand while the negotiations are taking place. However, when Fiona crosse ...more

3 1/2 stars. Entertaining story of a Fae, Fiona and the Werewolf, Walker, she meets who turns out to be her mate. As if that wasn't enough of a surprise (with the old immortal/mortal issue facing them), they must also figure out why the gates to Faerie are blocked and there are demons running through Manhattan killing humans and Others alike. Then there is Fiona's less than trustworthy uncle, the King of the Unseelie Court taking up residence in New York as well. Meanwhile, the Others are in sec ...more

OIY OIY OIY! I can't get over how amazing this book was. I had read another Others novel before and loved it! (Regina's) This one was different, and it had been a while since I read the last one. Completely worth the read. I slammed through it in about a day and a half. Not too too bad. I cannot wait! to get my hands on every single other Others book in this series, and then maybe some of Christine's others too. Christine Warren's writing is amazing, and the intrigue and characters in her books ...more

She's No Faerie Princess is Book 10 in Christine Warren's Others series. I won the book in a Dirty Santa game at a Christmas party. How the heck I'd missed this author and series before now is a source of "shame" for me now. I had no trouble jumping into the middle of the series. This book was well-written, clear, and clever. The heroine, Fiona, is the niece of both the Seelie and Unseelie court rulers. She's got a mind of her own, hates palace politics and skips blithely into the human world ju ...more

I can´t remember when I last laughed so much at a book. The dialogue is witty and very modern witch made it very easy for me to connect with the Heroine. I mean a Alpha male is an Alpha male what ever the spices. And Tobias Walker sure is an Alpha even if he is Beta in his pack.

I love all the supporting characters, Missy and Graham, Rafe and Tess...

I also liked the idea with the council trying to get at treaty with the humans that would get the Others same rights as humans.

I like the world this author creates, and the little emphasis on details like the importance of storytellers. I could see the villain's identity coming from a mile away, but the twists of the plot at least made me doubt my conclusions here and there.

The ending felt a little abrupt though, I like my stories to spend a little time relishing the afterglow of a good resolution. This felt a little more like a Scooby Doo episode, with a quick trap and meddling kids, some witty pun and that's the end.

Overall this was a pretty good book. There was plenty of funny moments in the beginning, but as the story moved on I had a hard time finishing this book.

Part of the problem was that I found some of the plot hard to swallow cheesy. To me the scene with the demon in Central Park (the second time) was one of those moments. I mean come on, "My name is Rule I'm not like the other demons... they're fiends." That just seemed a little stupid to me.

Also I didn't care for the possessiveness of the werewo

This is Christine Warren's second book in The Others series. Like Cynthia Eden's Midnight series there is quite a bit of sex in this book, but the sex here was integral to the story, and told with an intensity and purpose that both stimulated and amused us at the same time.

This is a world of Urban Fantasy. Through 2 books we have been introduced to various types of Shapeshifters, some pack oriented others not so much, Vampires, Witches, Demons, Faeries, Pixies, and Imps. I have enjoyed her mytho

The best part of this book were the first two chapters and the last 40 pages. It kind of dragged in the middle. Jeez, they really needed to keep their clothes on. One of the premises was that to keep her magical powers intact in this world, Fiona, a faerie princess, had to tap into her passion. Good thing she found a werewolf lover who could keep up, so to speak. Good-ish story with too much sex.

literally obsessed w this ridiculous series
Ok, so, y'all already know I think Christine Warren is the queen of paranormal romance, right? Her books (with 2 or 3 exceptions) are fantastic, she has well-rounded characters, her plots are amazing, and she writes multiple species with ease. She completely and single-handedly spearheads my addiction to this genre.

So as I went into reading the 10th book in the series, I was already aware that I was gonna get my socks knocked off. It's a given by now. It's what Christine does. Right?

Was glad for Walker & Fiona.

Although there was no rape in this book; in the light of what has been happening lately with the "MeToo" movement it makes me uneasy about these kinds of alpha males. Walker & his "mine" kind of unnerved me . I understand protection & wanting to protect the woman; but in parts of the book; he seemed like a bully. Women are not owned nor are they possessions but it seemed as if Walker felt he owned Fiona. She was a strong figure & could stand on her own. If she had no

While 'She's No Faerie Princess' was an improvement over the other Christine Warren I've read ('The Demon You Know', #11 in The Others series), it's still not great. The character's are two dimensional and the plot wasn't interesting.
I specifically wanted to read this book because Fiona was Fae. As a lover of fae folklore, it was depressing to quickly discover that, other than her looks and her unimpressive magic, Fiona wasn't much of a fae at all!

I had downloaded the E-book version a long while ago, and this version had so many grammatical and punctuation problems... it was distracting.

I hated how Fiona was introduced when she came to the human world; For a fae that had maybe snuck between planes a few times, she behaves too human. It gives the feeling that she spent much more time on the human plane than stated in the story. Since Warren likes to point out that faes and humans have such personality differences, it is frustrating that t

Enjoyable enough but not one of my favourites.
Too easy to know/work out who was behind the demon attacks.
Though I liked both Fiona and Tobias, their relationship went forward so fast, it lacked romance.
The ending just finished so easily, it was a bit of a let down.
I have to say the Demon Rule intrigued me more.
Liked seeing Graham and Missy and Tess and Rafe in this book.

Read quite a few times over the years but I tend to only reread my favourites in this series.

I love this series and this one was no exception. the characters and world are both well written and the romance was super steamy. there was plenty of action and intrigue as well so it wasnt lacking on any front. Walker and Fiona are an awesome couple and I definitely recommend reading about them.

There are some conflicting plot points between this instalment and a previous book - namely, how a mortal person can have a relationship with an immortal, previously referred to as heart mates, I believe. But, over all its a good book.
