Back Cover Blurb:

When magic began to flee the earth 300 years ago a council of magical beings prepared for its resurgence. It was determined that the next generation of magic would be placed in the hands of the Wild Hunt, a group of warriors of elven descent who rode through the night under the aegis of Artemis, one of the oldest magical creatures in existence. The elves of light argued that they should once again be the guardians, but the other races disagreed. Their guardianship consisted of seducing the new mages and then abandoning the pregnant women for fairie lovers. The word of the council was final and they created a place in the new world for the Wild Hunt to rest and begin to move with the pulse of the new land beneath them. Now, the ladies are coming into their power and Lucky is the first to meet her guardian and 'perfect' man. No matter how hard she tries, the attraction to her new companion is drawing her in in an inexorable wave. If only the light elf would stop trying to sabotage their wobbly relationship and let them have some privacy, Henry--just might Get Lucky.

My Review:

What a rush!  Grace has definitely launched this series with a flair that's got me dying for more.  She puts together a complete and charming tale within the pages of this book and does so with flair. I love the way that she develops the mythology behind this tale. It was so intricate yet didn’t overpower the forward motion of the plot. Lots of laughs populate the pages as the characters come to know one another and get up to speed with their situation. The characters were priceless and endearing, creating a bond that invited me into this world. I enjoyed the way that the dialogue varied from character to character, showing just how different their backgrounds really were.

This author is a perfect go-to for a quick read that will leave you sizzling. Or, dive in for the whole series for a weekend read. The overall premise for the series that Grace has presented here definitely has me hooked.
