When alpha werewolf Richard Zeeman is arrested on a date-rape charge, Anita Blake charges to his rescue in Tennessee—she knows he’s innocent.
Ordered to conceive a child, Meredith Gentry, a half-mortal, half-faerie princess, returns to Los Angeles, only to find herself trapped between faerie and human law.
Princess Meredith is trapped in Faerie with a harem of lovers to conceive an heir for the throne. And Mistral, the Queen’s captain of the guard, has helped to awaken old magic.
Attempts against Princess Meredith force Faerie to allow human police inside and sets up Mistral, Master of Storms, into Merry’s arms, awakening ancient magic.
Princess Merry’s dreams are bringing magic back to Faerie, but it’s not enough—or it’s too much—for some. For there are many Sidhe who refuse to see a mongrel queen upon the throne.
“I am Princess Meredith, heir to a throne—if I can stay alive, conceive a child, and elude Prince Cel’s assassination attempts while enjoying the pleasures of her royal guard
Dating a werewolf with self-esteem issues is stressing Anita out. Especially when something-or someone-starts taking out the city’s shapeshifters.
