This is my first book by Susan Hamilton. I’m big on paranormal romance so I jumped on the chance to read this. I’m glad I did. This was a new take on the fae trope. Playboy faes and crime…it’s new. The tale is original. Aohdan is dangerous and a little scary, but I liked the way he connected with Seireadan. Seireadan is original, too. She’s a seer, but she’s very independent. She can kick butt. I liked that she could take care of herself.

I did have a few quibbles with this story. There were more than a few times when I had to reread to connect with the tale. The writing was good, but I had to make sure I knew what was going on and there were a few independently moving items, like gloves going on his hands. I kept thinking, who put them on? I know this is a quibble, but it took me out of the story for a bit.

This is a tale full of spicy romance and two souls who need a happy ending. This story is good for those who want to step into paranormal romance and don’t want a lot of heavy fantasy. If you’re interested in a quick read with original characters, then this might be the one for you.
