Synopsis

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
 
Meet Merry Gentry, paranormal P.I., and enter a thrilling, sensual world as dangerous as it is beautiful, full of earthly pleasures and dazzling magic, and ruled by the all-consuming passions of immortal beings once worshipped as gods . . . or demons.
 
Merry Gentry, princess of the high court of Faerie, is posing as a human in Los Angeles, working as a private investigator specializing in supernatural crime. But now the queen’s assassin has been dispatched to fetch her—whether she likes it or not. Suddenly Merry finds herself a pawn in her dreaded aunt’s plans. The job that awaits her: enjoy the constant company of the most beautiful immortal men in the world. The reward: the crown—and the opportunity to continue to live. The penalty for failure: death.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Laurell K. Hamilton’s A Shiver of Light.

    Great beginning, great series

    I love Laurell K. Hamilton, I have since I read Guilty Pleasures way back when it was 1st released. This was a reread for me, I needed a break after finishing George RR Martin's Storm of Swords, and I've always read Laurell's books as they are released. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the Merry Gentry series, the descriptions of the guards is so spot on that I can easily picture them in my mind. And they are all so interesting, and flawed, that I can't pick my favorite... Such fun books to read, I used to recommend them to costumers all the time when I worked in a bookstore, and with the next book coming out in June, this is the perfect time to reread them all.

    Wonderful start to series

    This bok does a wonderful job of luring you into Merry Gentry's world. You quickly develop kinship with the main characters, feeling and understanding their hapiness, anger, and fears. I look forward to continuing my relationship in future books.
