I am Meredith Gentry, P.I. and Princess Merry, heir to the throne of Fairie.
Now there are those among me who whisper I am more.
They fear me even as they protect me. And who can blame them?
I’ve awakened the dazzling magic that’s slumbered in them for
thousands of years. But the thing is, I can’t figure out why.
My aunt, the Queen of Air and Darkness, is no longer distracted by her usual sadistic hobbies. Her obsession has turned unwaveringly to me. The mission to get me pregnant and beat my cousin Prince Cel to the crown is taking longer than expected. Even though I spend each night with the Queen’s Ravens, my immortal guards, no child has come of our decadent pleasures. But something else is happening. My magic courses through me uncontrollably. And as I lock my half-mortal body with their full-Sidhe blooded ones, the power surges like never before.
It all began with the chalice. I dreamed of it, and it appeared, cool and hard, beside me when I awoke. My guards know the ancient relic well—its disappearance ages ago stripped them of their vital powers. But it is here with us now. My touch resonates with its force, and they’re consumed with it, their Sidhe essences lit up by it. But even as they cherish me for this unexpected gift, there are those who loathe me for it. Me, a mongrel, only half fey and part mortal. The Unseelie court has suffered for so long, and there are some who would not have it weakened further by an impure queen. My enemies grow in number every day. But they do not know what I am capable of. Nor, for that matter, do I. . . .
In Seduced by Moonlight , Laurell K. Hamilton brings the dark, erotic reign of the immortal fey to a startling new depth. Full of sensuality and the consuming anticipation of latent powers unleashed, this world of gods, shapeshifters, and immortal souls is unveiled in all of its supreme magnificence and its treacherous deceits.

Seduced By Moonlight
A lot of people lounge by pools in l.a., but few of them are truly immortal, no matter how hard they pretend with plastic surgery and exercise. Doyle was truly immortal and had been for over a thousand years. A thousand years of wars, assassinations, and political intrigue, and he’d been reduced to being eye candy in a thong bathing suit by the pool of the rich and famous. He lay at the edge of the pool, wearing almost nothing. Sunlight glittered across the blue, blue water of the pool. The light broke in a jagged dance across his body, as if some invisible hand stirred the light, turning it into a dozen tiny spotlights that coaxed Doyle’s dark body into colors I’d never known his skin could hold.
He wasn’t black the way a human being is black, but more the way a dog is black. Watching the play of light on his skin, I realized I’d been wrong. His skin gleamed with blue highlights, a shine of midnight blue along the long muscular sweep of his calf, a flare of royal blue like a stroke of deep sky touched his back and shoulder. Purple to shame the darkest amethyst caressed his hip. How could I ever have thought his skin monochrome? He was a miracle of colors and light, strapped across a body that rippled and moved with muscles honed in wars fought centuries before I was born.
The braid of his black hair trailed across the edge of the lounge chair, fell over the side, and curled beside him on the concrete like some patient serpent. His hair was the only thing that seemed black on black. There was no play of colors, only a gleam like a black jewel. It seemed as if it should have been the other way around, that his hair should ha

Book Review: Seduced by Moonlight (Meredith Gentry #3) by Laurell K. Hamilton
Seduced by Moonlight takes place a little after A Caress of Twilight, Merry is with her guards/lovers and is trying to stay out of the paparazzi. She is still trying to get a baby from her men and it hasn’t happened yet. They are still trying to protect themselves because Merry is still being targeted and she wants more allies from the Kurag and his allies. While working to stop a war, Merry finds that she is getting powers that make her guards more powerful through sex. Merry doesn’t know how it is happening and doesn’t know she is becoming so powerful that she ends up with a once lost and powerful Fae relic.
I really enjoyed this book. Hamilton is so creative when it comes to creating different worlds. Her take on L.A. is so out of the box. I love it. I love that the world, well America, is okay with the Fae out in the open as long as they don’t break the rules. This is what Merry and the Fae are fighting for because America is the last place that will accept the Fae and a lot of them like living on Earth. But that promise is getting slimmer and slimmer.
Now I did have a couple of issues with this book. The pace was pretty slow for me and the book is quite long. Honestly, half of the book could be cut out and you would still get a good story. I mean, it isn’t a bad thing, just some stuff that didn’t add much to the story. I am not talking about the sex which this book was full of and I really enjoyed. There was a lot more compared to the previous two. But the sex added to the story because the men are getting all their god-like abilities back. Abilities they haven’t had in centuries. Can’t wait to see how they will all work out later on.
Now the plot really kicked off for me about halfway in the book. We find out the Queen Andais is crazy and has somehow become crazier and more homicidal. We find that someone has put a spell on her that has made her even worse. Some of the Fae already want Merry dead because they think she is no better than a human, just a half-breed that doesn’t deserve to be on the throne. But it is worse when they try to go after the queen because it could be her very own son, Cel (who is imprisoned), that might have sent someone to poison his mother. I won’t spoil it, but the finale showdown was surprising and epic.
I am trying my best not to give anything away, but this was pretty good. So far, the second one is a favorite for me. But I love this series. Merry and her men are fantastic together. In this book, we get more Dole who is my favorite of all of her men. Seduced by Moonlight had a bit of extras, but it wasn’t boring by any means. Just the action kicks up when we finally meet up with crazy Aunt Andais who has got to be the most disturbing female character in history. No joke, you would have better luck with the Devil than Queen Andais.

The story took up with Merry and her guards preparing to visit the unseelie court, the Goblins court and the seelie court.There are a lot of new men introduced in this book and a lot of mind wandering by Merry on sunlight and meadows,etc; that take up a lot of the story and which I skipped.
I have to admit I had vowed not to buy another new book by Ms. Hamilton because of the deterioration of the Anita Blake series but this is an OK read

I enjoyed this becuse I am starting to love (and hate!) the characters, but the series definitely needs to be read in order, and this installment is no exception.
