[Review] - Motor City Fae

Title: Motor City Fae
Author: Cindy Spencer Pape
Series: Urban Arcana
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: June 7, 2010

I received this book for review from Carina Press through NetGalley.

Summary: Detroit artist Meagan Kelly has had a strong sixth sense all her life, but that doesn't mean the gorgeous stranger's crazy story—that she's a half-elf, half human heiress—is true. But Meagan can't deny the evidence of her own eyes—he's Fae. A tall, blond, handsome, pointy-eared elf—and a man she just can't get enough of.

Ric Thornhill's assignment just got a lot more complicated. The more time he spends with Meagan, the harder it is to see her as a political tool to prevent an all-out war between humans and Fae.

Now Meagan's in a race to master her newly released powers in time to prevent the conflict, convince a jealous Queen not to strip Ric of his powers, and find out if she can build a life that straddles two worlds.

Thoughts: Artist Meagan Kelly has always had a feel for things. She knew when good or bad things were about to happen. She never knew why she could sense these things, but she always took them for what they were. When hunky Ric Thornhill tells her it's because she's half-elf, it is a lot to take in but she doesn't have a hard time believing him at his word. A new world is opened up for her, one where she has enemies that don't want her to take part in the important vote being held by the Seelie council.

I loved this story! I have read previous titles from this author so I was pretty positive I'd enjoy this new one. I really liked the meeting of Ric and Meagan. From the moment they cross paths they are attracted to each other. Their attraction is fierce and electric. The story is set in Detroit, which I liked. It was a nice change. I haven't read any stories set there, at least none that I recall. Motor City Fae is filled with intense, sensual scenes. Spencer Pape has created an interesting world that is inhabited by not just fae - but also healers, magic users and shifters. I look forward to reading more about these characters. Wonderfully paced. A captivating read, that keeps you wanting more.
