After her two best friends marry a blood-sucking vampire and furry-faced werewolf, Corinne D'Alessandro is making a vow of her own: NO interspecies dating. But when her editor asks her to investigate "leprechaun" sightings, the sassy New York reporter finds herself on the trail of the hottest story of the year—and the sexiest man alive…

His name is Luc, and he's as gorgeous as any Prince Charming in any bedtime story. There's just one problem: He's not human, he's fae. A captain of the Fae Queen's Guard, Luc is on a dangerous mission—and he could use the help of a certain leprechaun-hunting reporter. But when their two worlds collide, the sparks begin to fly. If Corinne and Luc can't control their lust—and focus on the villains in this story—their faerie-tale romance won't end happily ever after…

I read this book not really realizing that it was a book of a series at first, and not the first book. I must say that there were parts in which I knew there must have been a back story or at least something that happened before, but it was nothing that made me confused or frustrated by missing. The author did a pretty good job making this book a book that could be read as a stand alone book. The plot was quite interesting and there was plenty of paranormal mystery to keep you reading on. I enjoyed the characters, especially Luc, who was very easy on the readers eyes when picturing him. Corinne could be a bit much at times, but I think it added to the development of who she was as a character. I did find there to be some slow parts, but they seemed to pick up again in a timely fashion, so they weren't too bad. The romance of the story was great as was the erotic parts of the book. The author was great when it came to descriptions and making the reader feel like they were in the book or watching a movie about the book. I could see it all plain as day in my head. I have to say one of my favorite descriptions was of the Pink Pillow sex shop, I couldn't stop laughing at the description and how it looked. Burning her retinas to look at, as a description was so perfect for the description that followed. All in all, I enjoyed reading this book and may pick up the other books in the series some time, but it wasn't my favorite of all times, book. It did keep me intrigued though and wanting to read on and it was well written and had great characters that I came to just love. 4/5 Starsmore
This is a re-write of one of the original stories from Ellora's Cave. The hero and heroine of this story are Lucifer "Luc" Macanaw and Corinne D'Alessandro. I am thinking that I like the older stories more than the newer ones. The characters didn't take so long to get together in the originals. Anyway I like the story mostly because it gives the reader a glimpse into the Summer Court of Faerie. I liked Luc, as I have with most of the male characters, he is all alpha male and caring mate at once. I liked the twist in the plot about who the bad guys was and how everyone came together to catch the crazy Other. There is a enough humor to keep the story from dragging and enough suspense to keep it from being to draggy. The overall story is a good addition to the paranormal genre and fans should enjoy it.more
The New York Chronicle isn't exactly a scandal rag, but it's not the New York Times, either. Still, reporter Corinne D'Alessandro is definitely not happy about her latest assignment: track down a six-foot tall, gorgeous elf who's been spotted walking through walls in Manhattan. Her two best friends may have married Others, but Corinne's sworn off inter-species dating, so tracking the hottest man on two feet has absolutely no appeal. Still, she figures she'd better notify the powers-that-be before she writes her story...The captain of the Queen Mab's guard is about as pleased to be sent after the her straying nephew as Corinne is about her latest assignment. At least that is, until he spots Corinne.Of course there's a HEA in their future, and the plot's fairly thin but the snarky exchanges between Luc and Corinne are well worth the read.more
