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.

This is my first audiobook. It is fantastic but I would have preffered the reader to just read straight through instead of trying to do voices for everyone. Reader be warned that the reader's voices sometimes make you laugh and giggle because it is so absurd! Half of the time I felt like Grandma was trying to read me a dirty book. LOL
It’s basically just a porno.
I really tried to give this book a chance because the premise seemed interesting but I had to put it down after a couple hours of cringing through sex scene to sex scene. It’s basically just a porno with a dash of plot thrown in between the sheets.
get your facts straight, people
I don't much care for either of the readers that perform the Merry Gentry stories, but for god's sake stop complaining about the reader's mispronounciation of Doyle's name. There's pronounciation guide in the back of some of the books and it's clearly stated that in the story, Doyle's name should be pronounced "DOLE". I hate it too, but there's not much we can do about it.
