Overview


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...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With wit that never quite hits its mark and insufficient fantasy glitter, Warren’s 12th novel of the Others (after May 2011’s Black Magic Woman) is in fact a very ordinary Fae-meets-girl story. Reporter Corinne D’Allesandro and Luc Macinaw, head of Queen Mab’s Guard, collaborate on a haphazard search around Manhattan for the queen’s nephew. Luc is shocked that Fate has chosen him a human heartmate, but Corinne’s happy to have the sexy attention and willing to suffer the teasing of her already Other-mated friends, even if Luc never stops being vaguely insufferable. Luc’s only supernatural characteristics are pointy ears and a tendency to glow after the clumsily described sex (“like soul A and soul B matched on some sort of elemental plane”), and the plot is painfully obvious and unengaging. Only longtime fans will be interested in this installment. (Nov.)

    If you are not what I expected, can you still be everything I need?

    When your Queen gives you an assignment, regardless of your thoughts on the matter you go. For Luc Macanaw that meant crossing utilizing a portal to go from the land of the Fae to the human world and retrieve the Queen¿s nephew who decided to party on the other side.

    Luc is a leader who always takes his assignment seriously letting nothing deter him from his objective. So meeting Corinne D¿Alessandro and being thrown off his game is a shocker he never saw coming. Luc should not be attracted to Corinne for pity sake she is human. The other problem is she is chasing down the same object from a different perspective though as the reporter assigned to figure out what is going on. Corinne already knows about the non-humans on earth staying under the radar and swore to stay away from a relationship with any of them. She never expected any spark with a non-human but Luc is definitely pushing every go after him button she has with some red flags but mostly passion on all fronts. Could they have something together or is this an attraction Luc has conquered up from his bag magic?

    The task is difficult for the two of them even working together as the witnesses start showing up murdered or missing. It is difficult to trace a lead under the best of circumstances but not even having a verification of the facts makes it almost impossible. The Others existence must be kept a secret so the pursuit becomes even more critical when more people start to notice the unusual activity but Luc knows Corinne has the same agenda and trust is not an issue.

    This book is so much more than demons with secrets it is a romantic interlude that will enchant as well as romance you. With a well-defined and detailed storyline, this book makes for a great read, as you are able to feel the passion and the danger all at the same time.

    This engaging Other urban fantasy is a fun investigative tale

    Following the interspecies marriages of her BFFs, New York reporter Corinne D'Allesandro vows not her. However, her editor assigns her on a paranormal investigative tale. Her jaunt around Manhattan leads her to Queen Mab's chief of the guards Luc Macinaw. He searches for the missing royal nephew who is causing havoc that could endanger the Faerie realm.

    Luc is stunned that his destined heart mate is human. Corinne disregards her pledge to never date an Other, while her buddies tease her for joining their ranks after she proclaimed never her. They team up on his quest and in the boudoir, but love may not be enough to counter the threat to both their lives.

    This engaging Other urban fantasy is a fun investigative tale though the paranormal elements seem somewhat diminished in comparison to the previous entries (see The Big Bad Wolf and Black Magic Woman). Corrine is a terrific heroine while Luc is her prefect mate even if she has to renege on her vow. Fans of the saga will relish Corinne falling in love as she was adamant that never her.

    Was looking for something different in urban fantasy and this one wasn't bad. A little predictable but still liked it and now I am interested in learning about some of the other characters that were in this book. Luckily they have their own books.

    Highly recommended

    I loved this book, I was so looking forward to the release of this book on Nook (since I don't read any other way). I started reading the other series with One Bite With a Stranger, then continued to kinda read them out of order, I felt that this book cleared up some of the minor things that you wonder about in the other books. Since this book goes back to the original four friends and there soul mates.
