fairy revisited

A Kiss of Shadows by Laurell K. Hamilton (435 pgs) 2000

A reread of the first book in the Merry Gentry series.  Her books are part of the growing genre of supernatural romance with a “Magic made me do it” approach to sex.  The Merry Gentry books are about a half-human fairy princess who’s commanded by the queen (her aunt) to have lots o’ sex, with lots o’ different guys, in order to produce an heir for the dying land of Fairie.  And of course, all kinds of magical “healing the land” phenomenon occur whenever she has sex.  I like her earlier books better before the scale tips from “plot with sex scenes that advance the plot” to “sex scenes with a little plot thrown in.”
