3.5 stars

With Christine Warren, you have to be careful you know which book you've got. Although this is new, it is also an older book re-worked that fits in around book 3, rather than as book 10.
This is the full-length novel version of her erotic short "Faer Fetched" from her "Fixed" series.
Since I haven't read that one, I'm not sure where the different parts are, but I have read a few of her "fixed" series, and let's just say that woman writes amazing erotica!

here is straight from her website:

For those that have read the Ellora's Cave series The Others is based on, this book isn't really an expansion of Faer Fetched (Fantasy Fix #3). Rather, it's a total rewrite. The story features Danice, a lawyer, and Mac, a half-Fae Changeling. That's about where the similarities end. :D

Entertaining read despite a few problems. Nothing spectacular here and not really anything that adds to overall The Other universe. (Except maybe a curse cast on another character at the end of the book.) I didn't

I've been following Warren's Others Series for a while and I have liked it very much so far. However...............this books left me confused. The plot was clear and followed along with the rest of the series, but here is where my issue lies: Danice Carter's physical description was quite murky. I was so caught up in trying to figure out what she looked like that I kept having to go back a few pages every ten minutes or so. The descriptions of McIntyre Callahan were spot on. I could totally pic ...more

This was a high 3 star. This book is sort of a prequel to the main series. I think she is going back and reworking and reissueing older short stories that were only in ebook before the series hit the mass market world. So maybe not a prequel to her but to readers. The story was well written and made sense. No glaring errors or absurdities like the last mass market which came out. The characterization was okay. You knew who the people were without knowing too much of their backstories. You didn' ...more

2 Stars

On assignment from her boss to locate his wayward granddaughter, Danice Carter has no idea that she is about to have a close encounter with a hunky PI with ties to the Others. McIntyre “Mac” Callahan is a Changeling, half-human and half-tae, hired by a mysterious Other to track down Danice’s client. Soon these two unlikely allies will have to work together to survive the machinations of some rather vicious Fae …

Jessica (a GREAT read)
Christine Warren's Other series is definitely an interesting one. Prince Charming Doesn't Live Here, now follows Danice, yet another member of the group of ladies we first saw in One Bite with a Stranger. It seems that each of them will be hooking up with an Other. Kind of odd, but hey, that's what happens in fiction, so it doesn't really matter to me!

Danice is a little more levelheaded than her other friends. She's a lawyer and is always super busy. So when this particular case comes her way, s

Great book! Loved the writing style of the author. Found this book at a second hand book store and wasn't familiar with the author but so glad I picked it up and gave it a chance!Had the perfect combination of romance, humour and fantasy. Definitely will be reading more of Christine warrens books!

Danice Carter, sharp and determined up-and-coming lawyer, and hunky half Fae private investigator MacIntyre (Mac) Callahan both need to find the same missing woman. Their hunt will draw Danice even further into the world of the Others - two of her friends already have Other mates. When Danice and Mac's search leads them into the land of the Fae, failure suddenly doesn't mean that Danice will simply risk losing a chance at a junior partnership in her prestigious firm, the consequences are potenti ...more

I love Warren's writing style it's quirky and clever. I loved the sex scenes they were so hot they made me burn. What I didn't love was Neicie, which was pretty bad because she was half the book. And I didn't love his reactions to her, they weren't real. If she acted to me like she acted to him I would be pissed, he doesn't even get angry. I hate it when authors tell me characters are smart because invariably they then spend all their time proving to me just how much of a dumbass this character ...more

Danice is the most self assured out of her friends so far who have gotten their own story. She didn't take any crap from Mac at all. I think that's one of the things he loved about her. They say you are supposed to start how you intend to go on and that is what she did.

The story itself wasn't 5 star, it was a 4 instead. Why did I give it 5 you ask? Well, my main reason..No Ava. This woman drove me crazy in the other books, so the lack of her presence he was a star in and of itself.

Danice Carter is a lawyer working at a prestigious law firm in Manhattan, and she's given an assignment by the senior partner that might help land her a junior partnership if she can find his pregnant granddaughter and find out who the father of her unborn child is. When she makes arrangements to meet with Rosemary out in Connecticut, Rosemary is a no-show. She ends up encountering a very sexy private eye (Mac Callahan), who is also looking for the missing

While I typically enjoy Ms. Warren's series about The Others, this particular installment felt . . . rushed? And not in that "You have to suspend belief because the book is less than 400 pages long and who falls in love with a supernatural being in just a week" kind of rush, but in that "Let's just get this sub-story over with" kind of rush.

Maybe I just couldn't connect with the characters, as attractive as their appearances and personalities are described, or maybe it's the pregnancy hormones

The GR description seems to be from the original Ellora's Cave short story that inspired this very revised novel. That short story was pretty forgettable, so of all the revisions CW has done with this series, this one makes the most sense to me.

Overall, it is light and entertaining. It had some continuity errors and occasional TSTL behavior from the heroine (especially in the vicinity of chapter 14), but she was otherwise pretty smart. I do wish there had been more depth and development to Mac

I couldn't finish this book, I found it so boring and the characters annoyed me.
Usually in a romance novel I want more interaction between the two love interests but I just found that the interaction between Mac and Danice irritating.
They were just both too pushy. Danice was trying too hard to be a women that doesn't need a man and all in your face, to the point where you could tell that this is how she's supposed to be acting but it didn't feel natural, and she was just rude.

I've been reading Christine Warren for a long time. I always like her books but don't always love them. This story I had a rough time getting into. When I did then the story moved but I still have to say it's not a favorite. I did like both Danice Carter and MyIntyre (Mac) Cullahan. Both brought something to the story. I even liked Quigley. The end of the book was the best part to me. I felt that it was missing something in the middle. It was light on story. I would still read it so you keep up ...more

I usually love Christine Warren's Others but this book was just a rehash of every other book I've ever read about Fae royalty. The heroine is TSTL. The hero should have known better than to bring her into Faerie but succumbs to her lawyer-speak. The King is crazy, mean and nasty. Though for the sake of the story, the heroine really does have to go to Faerie. It just made for a very similar story to everything else written on the subject.

If you've ever read any book pertaining to the court of the

I think I’m done. This is the last book offered through my library in audio format but beyond that, I’m done with series. It just isn’t working for me and it is time to move on. I have about an hour left to listen to in this book and I don’t even want to finish it.

Most of my problem with this book in the series has to do with that the plot revolves around the Fae. I’ve never been a fan of the Fae in paranormal stories. Most of the time they tend to be shallow, easily offended, and only out for t

This book was very good in that it had romance, a fight scene & some sex scenes.

Danice Carter is 1 of the 5 women who are friends (Regina Book 1 & Missy Book 2) that give each other fantasy fixes expect now there will be only 2 left as Danice meets her love in this story. Danice works for a prestigious law firm & was asked by the top senior partner to get some information from his granddaughter, Rosemary, about who she had sex with to make her pregnant so that he could sue him on her

More like a 3.5. Not Warren's best book. Granted, the more I read about fairies the more I dislike them. I might be biased; however, my main complaint about the book is that I don't really ship Danice and Mac. Their personalities don't seem like the best fits. I also think the whole issue with Danice questioning her job was unnecessary and/or poorly executed. It's a mehh book, overall.

Interracial lady attorney joins up with interspecies Fae private detective to track down a grown brat who finds herself lost in a world she doesn't believe exists. Interesting and fun, sometimes a trifle scary, but generally a good read for escape.

3.5 stars. Not one of the better stories in this series.
We go in a little bit off a different direction with this one but it is still a good read though the romance between Danice and Mac is not as hot as the two previous couples.
One of the original books in the FIXED series. I own the original of this book and this story is completely different.
Loved the plot line and what happens and the story about spoilt little miss Rosemary was good. Someone needs a slap.

The book had some good idea’s, but wasn’t able to follow through. Mac was a okay hero, but I don’t get why he fell for Danice. She was rude, abrasive, and insulting to him until the end of the book. Guess I should read Why Men Love Bitches. It was nice to read a story where the lead was a woman of color, but all her hang ups about being black made no sense. Her nickname is Nicie and she’s from Brooklyn, I really don’t get why she’s supposed to be uncomfortable with her blackness. I get that she ...more

For starters, this is one of Ms. Warren's re-writes based on her [ebook only] Faer Fetched - part of the original Fantasy Fix ebook series which gave birth to the whole Others series of print books. She is now rewriting the ebooks to include with her print books, generally lengthening them and smoothing out plot kinks to make them 'work' better as novels and as part of world of the Others as it has developed. With the first two, Fantasy Fix and Fur Factor, the changes were in details and added s ...more

I actually made a shelf for this novel, "Meh Bleh", it really sums it up for me.

Where was the "Scorching passion"? Where was the originality?
Not only did it remind me too much kf the Sookie stack house/trueblood series with its selection of supernaturals and emphasis on Fae in this particular novel, it didn't even have interesting enough characters.

Why so perfect? It really makes for a boring character, a main boring character. You just lost me there.
