Genre Adult Paranormal Thriller Romance
After making a diplomatic pact with humankind and the other leaders of the Elder Races, Pia Cuelebre, mate to Dragos Cuelebre, Lord of the Wyr, reluctantly heads to Hollywood to spend a week with the Light Fae Queen, Tatiana, before the busy Masque season hits New York in December.
Dragos has never let the lack of an invitation stop him from doing anything he wanted. Unwilling to let his mate make the trip without him, he travels to southern California in secret to be with her.
But when an ancient enemy launches a shattering assault against the Light Fae, Dragos and Pia must intercede. The destruction threatens to spread and strike a mortal blow against all of the magically gifted, both human and Elder Race alike.
Working with the Light Fae to neutralize the danger, Dragos and Pia find their deepest vulnerabilities challenged and their most closely held secrets threatened with exposure.
This is a great follow on to "Dragos goes to Washington", where Pia and Dragos had some exciting news amongst all the chaos as per usual.
Pia is committed to stay with another family from the Elder Races for a week. As this is part of a protocol, she decides to get it over and done with. Neither Pia nor Dragos are happy about this visit to Hollywood but duty calls! The other snag is that Dragos cannot see her during that week. Oh dear! Does Dragos ever do as he is told though?
When Pia and her bodyguards arrive in Hollywood, she senses that things aren't quite right but unable to figure out what. Tatiana, the Light Fae Queen is not forthcoming with any information either. In the meantime Dragos is hanging around, cloaked! When he sees this rare set of jewellery, he is unable to resist investigating. Blame his dragon's senses! This is where he gets more than he bargains for. Not hearing from him is driving Pia out of her mind with worry.
What transpires when Dragos eventually turns up is horrific. This is when the Light Fae decides to come clean. They are all under threat from a powerful and ruthless enemy. Will they be able to come up with a solution and save the day?
This series never lets the readers down. There is all the action, the suspense, the magic and the danger. The love and dedication between Pia and Dragos get better and better. Peanut is turning into a real darling and now there is the Stinkpot. Now, that is something else to look forward to. I hope to see more of Morgan and learn who he really is.
Fully recommended, not that the fans of the Elder Races need any encouragement.
I write paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and other stuff. I taught myself to read when I was four. That was around the time I tried to ride my tricycle to work. I wasn't sure where work was, but I knew it had to be interesting if people went there every day. Now I combine my love of books with work, and I don't have to ride my tricycle to get there. My Elder Races series began May, 2011. You can also find me on Twitter and Facebook!
