Summary:
"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 both courts of faerie are coming to court Merry and her men, at their home in exile in the Western Lands of Los Angeles, because they will do anything to have babies 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 babies 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 she 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 keep the war from spreading to innocent humans in Los Angeles, who are in danger of becoming collateral damage" -- from publisher's web site.

Library Journal Reviews

In this long-awaited sequel to 2009's Divine Misdemeanors, homegrown American faerie princess (and former PI) Meredith (Merry) NicEssus gives birth to enchanted triplets. But she knows from bloody experience that life in the faerie court is far from fairy-tale perfect. The constant target of ruthless relatives, Merry, along with her consorts and the other faerie who chose exile in the human world, has to be ready for dangers coming her way. VERDICT After a five-year hiatus, best-selling author Hamilton returns with a spellbinding series follow-up. Her ingeniously imaginative worldbuilding, erotically inventive plot, and dark lyrical narrative are still impressive and don't lessen now that Merry is a mom. Fans will rejoice as the author puts Merry and her merry men through their paces in and out of the bedroom. For new readers, the series, which has a strong R rating, should be read in order.—Debbie Haupt, St. Charles City-Cty. Lib. Dist., St. Peters, MO
