A highly erotic, seductive gothic adventure that could be as happy in Sci Fi as main stream fiction
Some know me as Meredith Gentry, P.I., others as Princess Merry, heir to the throne of Faerie. There are those who whisper that I am yet more. They fear me. And who can blame them? I seem to have awakened a dazzling magic that’s slumbered for thousands of years. If only I knew why. My aunt, the Queen of Air and Darkness, has turned her malign gaze full upon me. While no child has come of decadent nights spent with my immortal guards, something else has happened to me. It all began with the chalice. I dreamed of it and there it was when I awoke. My guards know this ancient relic well, for its disappearance so very long ago stripped them of their vital powers. And now it’s back. My touch resonates with its force, a magic that courses near uncontrollably through my half-mortal half-fey body.
Some cherish me for this unexpected gift yet others loathe me for it. They would rather the Unseelie court suffered further agonies than have it ruled by me, a mongrel queen. But they do not know what I am capable of. Then again, neither do I.
Full of gods, shapeshifters and immortal souls, of decadent pleasures and wild magic, of treachery, deceit and dark powers unleashed, the twilight world of Meredith Gentry is a dangerously alluring place. You have been warned...
