"All it would take was my true name being mentioned after dark, and it would float back to my aunt. She was the Queen of Air and Darkness, and that meant that anything said in the dark was hers to hear, eventually. The fact that spotting the missing Elven American Princess had become more popular than spotting Elvis helped. Her magic was always chasing blind leads. Princess Meredith skiing in Utah. Princess Meredith dancing in Paris. Princess Meredith gambling in Vegas. After three years I was still a front-page story for the tabloids, though the latest headlines had been speculating that I was as dead as the King of Rock and Roll . . ." In fact, Meredith has been posing as a human in Los Angeles, living as a private investigator specializing in supernatural crime. But now Doyle, the Queen's chief bodyguard and assassin, has been dispatched to fetch her back - whether she likes it or not. And suddenly Meredith finds herself a pawn in her dreaded aunt's plans . . . plans that affect the future of the entire UnSeelie Court. The requirements of the job: to enjoy the constant company of the most beautiful - and immortal - men in the world. The reward: the crown - and the opportunity to continue to live. The penalty: death.

This is the only book in my life I can remember not finishing. I am an avid reader, read whatever I can get my hands on, and finish books that others gave up on long ago. But this one was a complete disappointment. Halfway through, I realized I couldn't care less about Meredith and basically felt like the book went from erotic sex scene to erotic sex scene with no plot and no feeling. One women and I lost count at 5 men (term used loosely). I am shocked about the 4 stars
another in the meredith series. this time, the slowness was too much for me and i gave up somewhere before the middle. no more of this series.
