The negotiations for the Unveiling are progressing, but every moment could spell disaster with so many different factions involved. Each group of weres, vamps and Others is walking on thin ice. The werewolves have been appointed as policemen of sorts, to keep order, and make sure that no Other runs amok to shatter the delicate balance. As second in command of the Silverback Clan, Tobias Walker has shouldered most of the responsibility while his alpha takes part in the negotiations. He is dog-tired and more than ready for a few hours of serious sleep as he takes his final patrol through Central Park. The scream that pierced the night shattered his hopes for a peaceful patrol, and changed his life.

Technically she is a Fae princess, but Fiona Malcomson is just a girl looking for a good time when she steps through the portal into Manhattan. She is hoping for some shopping, good music and a few days of R&R, far away from court politics. Just because she is in line for either (or both) thrones, doesn’t mean she wants anything to do with them. She is sick of the rules, especially the one prohibiting the Fae from visiting the human world, and she is happy to be in New York. Until she runs smack into a demon, that is. And this demon is not only butt-ugly, but also seems to have decided that she will make a lovely late-night snack.

Christine Warren’s new book, She’s No Faerie Princess is a winner. Tobias and Fiona alternate between wanting to strangle each other and wanting to make love until they cannot move. The sparks flare quickly into passion, but there are lots of obstacles. Especially when you consider that Tobias is bred to make rules and Fiona was made to break them. When it appears that the Others have a demon infestation on their hands, it only gets more complicated, and dangerous.

I could not put this book down. The pace was perfect and I loved the character development. Ms. Warren has an easy way about her dialogue that makes everything sound completely natural, even when the characters are talking about demons and imps. Ms. Warren has also piqued my interest in the next book with her newest character, who is introduced at the end of this book.
