Rose revisits the world of 2008's Bound to Love Her with this clever fantasy romance. Adlia is an orphaned elf who works at Elf Ops, a Boulder, Colo., organization run by local elves to manage their land. Elves are tied to their land-they live inside it and rejuvenate by melting back into it-and must constantly combat human encroachment. Newly emerged and disguised as human, Adlia struggles to keep from falling for Mark Speranzi, her warmly affectionate photography teacher. When a wayward amnesiac elf is brought to Elf Ops and Adlia's mentor begins relying heavily on another outsider, Adlia must combat jealousy and suspicion as well as questions about her identity and feelings for Mark. Adlia's efforts to untangle the numerous plot threads are hampered as she and others miss obvious clues, and numerous implausible coincidences fuel the unsatisfying resolution.
