All it would take was my true name being mentioned after dark, and it would float back to my aunt. She was the Queen of Air and Darkness, and that meant that anything said in the dark was hers to hear, eventually.
"The fact that spotting the missing Elven American Princess had become more popular than spotting Elvis helped. Her magic was always chasing blind leads: Princess Meredith skiing in Utah. Princess Meredith dancing in Paris. Princess Meredith gambling in Vegas. After three years, I was still a front-page story for the tabloids, though the latest headlines had been speculating that I was as dead as the King of Rock and Roll."
In fact, Meredith has been posing as a human in Los Angeles, living as a private investigator specializing in supernatural crime. But now Doyle, the Queen's chief bodyguard and assassin, has been dispatched to fetch her back - whether she likes it or not. And suddenly Meredith finds herself a pawn in her dreaded aunt's plans...plans that affect the future of the entire UnSeelie Court.
The requirements of the job: to enjoy the constant company of the most beautiful - and immortal - men in the world. The reward: the crown - and the opportunity to continue to live. The penalty: death.

I have been waiting for Laurell Hamilton on iTunes for a long time. I have read all of the Merideth Gentry Novels (just can't put them down.) Laurell Hamilton's writing pulls you into Merideth's world of the Old Irish Folklore and entwined it with modern day seduction, politics and mystery. Her novels will truly have you twisting for more!!
I have listened to one of her books on Audio cassette and it was good but reading the book first only added to the staging of the audio cassettes but, that is something you will have to experience to decide on which delivery you prefer.
Thank You, iTunes for adding them!
I love this story line. It is very captivating. It keeps you engaged in the characters. You will find your self laughing and crying and rooting for Meredith. She is not like a lot of female heroines, who are just plain stupid and somewhat annoying. This character is more believable and a women of merit. If I was a Unseele Sidhe, I want her to rule.
have read better
I liked the first one okay but as the series went on it was like they were always the same except the author was trying to outdo herself in the "shocking sex" dept. I got bored and finally stopped reading them.
