Seduced by Moonlight Paperback
Part of the Merry Gentry series
To some I am Meredith Gentry, P.I. To others I am Princess Merry, heir to the throne of Faerie. And there are those who whisper that I am both of these and more.
My aunt, the Queen of Air and Darkness, no long distracted by her sadistic pastimes, now focusses unwaveringly on me.
I spend each night with my immortal guards, but still no child has come of our decadent pleasures.
But something IS happening to me. I appear to have awakened a force that's lain dormant for thousands of years and I haven't the damndest idea how or why...It all began with the chalice.
I dreamed it, and there it was - cool and hard - when I awoke.
My guards know this ancient relic well - its disappearance so many ages ago stripped them of their vital powers. And here it is with us now. My touch resonates with its force. A strange, dazzling magic now courses through my half-mortal half-Sidhe body.
But while my guards cherish me for this unexpected gift, there are those who loathe me for it and would rather the Unseelie court suffer than have it ruled over by me, a mongrel queen.
My enemies grow in number every day. If only they knew what I am capable of. But come to that, if only I did too. This is the world of Meredith Gentry, a twilight world of gods, shapeshifters and immortal souls, a world full of sensuality, wild magic, treacherous deceits and latent powers about to be unleashed...

Review by johnthefireman
A third book in a series which is apparently about sex between different combinations of humans and/or faeries in the modern world. And somewhere amongst all that there is a plot about two characters vying for the faerie throne. Whichever one produces an heir first gets the job. But the plot development is dreadfully slow and is bogged down in idle chit-chat.
Review by miyurose
This was pretty par for the course for this series. Lots of weird sexual situations, not much plot. You really don't notice how *little* plot there is, until you get to the end of the book and realize that it only covered a couple of days. I wasn't real fond of the way this one ended ... it was very abrupt. No real resolution. I have a feeling that once I read the next one, I'll feel like the two should have been one book.

It has been a little while since I read this book but here is what I recall...<br/><br/>I had a love hate relationship with this series. It was confused about if it wanted to be mainstream or erotic. Mostly Merry had loads of sex and the story fell to the wayside.<br/><br/>I quit before I finished the whole series. But I did get quite a few books in so there must have been something drawing me back every time!
