Just Read: A Caress of Twilight

A Caress of Twilight by Laurell K. Hamilton

I am Princess Meredith, heir to a throne-if I can stay alive long enough to claim it.
My cousin, Prince Cel, is determined to see that I don't. As long as we both live, we are in a race for the crown: Whichever one of us reproduces first gets the throne. So now the men of my royal guard- frightening warriors skilled with blade, spell, and gun-have become my lovers, auditioning with pleasure for the role of future king and father of my child. And they must still protect me from assassination attempts-for unlike most of the fey, I am part human, and very mortal. All this royal back-stabbing makes it very difficult for me to pursue my living as a private investigator in Los Angeles, especially since the media made sure the whole world knows the Faerie princess is alive and well in sunny California.
Now, in the City of Angels, people are dying in mysterious, frightening ways. What the human police don't realize is that the killer is hunting the fey as well. Havoc lies on the horizon: the very existence of the place known as Faerie is at grave risk. So now, while I enjoy the greatest pleasures of my life with my guardians, I must fend off an ancient evil that could destroy the very fabric of reality. And that's just my day job...
From the darkling throng to the glittering court, this is a world of magic and delights, greed and grotesque ambitions. Laurell K. Hamilton has created a mythos of extreme power and pure beauty that is a delight to behold.

Review template stolen from Bloggerdybooks!
The book in one sentence: Merry tries to get pregnant, gets someone else pregnant instead.
Who would you recommend it to: If you like Detective books, without anyone actually trying to solve any crime, Anne Rice Fans...
Best bits: I'd say the fastness of the book, it's really always fast, i have to run to keep up.
Juicy bits: A book this filled with sex, hard to point any...
Boring bits: She often overdoes it with all the emo-melodrama bits...
Verdict: What can i say? These books have become my guilty pleasure, they're not good, i wouldn't really recommend them to anybody, but i just can't put them down...
