A Shiver of Light by Laurell K. Hamilton

Lovereading view...

Ninth in the wonderful Merry Gentry series. The babies have finally arrived so Merry has far less sex than usual, but still manages to give a few earth-shattering blow jobs even if she can’t go all the way just yet. There are still threats on her life, lots of intrigue and some good fights. Another normal day for her, really … Hamilton was writing excellent supernatural erotica long before it became so fashionable. Part of what I love about her books is the fact that we get so much exciting plot that the sex seems secondary to the magic and mayhem all around. As usual a lot happens very quickly near the end, so you need to keep awake right up to the finish. Whether you like erotica or modern fantasy, these books are great, as is the Anita Blake series. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

A Shiver of Light by Laurell K. Hamilton

I am Princess Meredith Nicessus. Legal name Meredith Gentry, because Princess looks so pretentious on a driver's license. I was the first faerie princess born on American soil, but I wouldn't be the only one for much longer...Merry Gentry, ex-private detective, now full-time princess, knew she was descended from fertility goddesses, but when she learned she was about to have triplets, she began to understand what that might mean. Infertility has plagued the high ranks of faerie for centuries. Now nobles of the both courts of faerie are coming to woo Merry and her men at their home in exile in the Western Lands of Los Angeles, because they will do anything to have offspring of their own. Taranis, King of Light and Illusion, is a more dangerous problem. He tried to seduce Merry, and failing that, raped her. He's using the human courts to sue for visitation rights, claiming that one of the children is his. And though Merry knows she was already pregnant when he took her, she can't prove it. To save herself and her babies from Taranis Merry will use the most dangerous powers in all of faerie: a god of death, a warrior known as the Darkness, The Killing Frost, and a king of nightmares. They are her lovers, and her dearest loves, and they will face down the might of the high courts of faerie - while trying to contain the war, to keep it from spreading to those innocent humans who are in very real danger of becoming collateral damage...

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
