Desperately Seeking Excitement…

With the temporary prohibition on magic on the land of the Fae, Claire Thorne might as well go back to the Regency world. The haut ton has just as many annoying rules as her world, but at least they have parties and dances. Plus, the roguish Lord Phineas “Finn” Trimble is there…

When the feisty faerie tumbles into his room through a magical portal, Finn can’t believe how completely unpredictable she is. Even before the two stumble into a dangerous intrigue that threatens both their worlds, Finn discovers that his hitherto carefree life is about to go up in smoke…

Move out of the way vampires, werewolves, and zombies, and make room for the faeries. Yes, I said faeries, and while Claire may be beautiful, she is as feisty as any other paranormal creature I have ever been introduced to. It was nice to see a faerie be portrayed as a strong independent female.

Finn is not a  human  weakling either. Finn has a subtle strength to him that I came to enjoy. He didn’t have to prove that he was the big man on campus to win over my heart, or Claire’s. It was the small things that proved that he was more than capable of protecting the ones he cared for and providing whatever they needed. While his playboy antics were a problem for him in the past, it is clear that he is not willing to miss a good thing when it comes to Claire. His ex’s popping up in the story also made for interesting little twists that enhanced the story line.

One aspect that I think is worth mentioning was how entertaining Claire’s internal battle was when it came to Finn. His being human was a large concern of hers and on more than a few occasions almost blinded her to not only how much Finn cared for her, but also her own feelings towards him. Her past plays a large role in her prejudices against humans and faeries having relations, so her relationship development with Finn allowed me to see both her romantic as well as personal growth. It also provides a better idea of real life prejudices, because I could sympathize with her feelings, yet not agree with them.

This story was absolutely entertaining from beginning to end. It is a story I would most certainly recommend for its distinguished characters and exciting plot line.
