Fiona has the supreme pleasure of being the niece of the current faerie queen; not.  Despising court life, she yearns for the freedom afforded her when she sneaks into the human world.  Today is one of those days and while her interesting companions, a pixie and an imp, try and talk her out of sneaking away from Court, Fiona doesn’t listen and heads towards the human world.  Once there she runs into a bit of trouble in the form of a huge, hoof-footed demon intent on causing her immediate demise.  Rescue comes in the unlikely form of a werewolf of all things.  An attractive, somewhat irritated werewolf that Fiona suddenly desires very much.

Ever since negotiations began six months ago between the Others and humans, Tobias Walker has been patrolling his area of the park without much help.  Tired, horny, and just downright disagreeable at times, he yearns for uninterrupted sleep and a nice good session of sex.  When he hears a scream in the area he is monitoring, Tobias runs to find the source of the disturbance and comes face to face with an alluring, somewhat alternative looking woman being chased by a demon.  Coming to her aid, he is surprised and completely taken aback by what she makes him feel.  Now if only he can keep her alive long enough to explore the attraction he has for her.

After reading Wolf at the Door, I was looking forward to She’s No Faerie Princess very much and wasn’t disappointed in the least.  I love how Tobias started out being grumpy and Alpha, and after one encounter with Fiona, his entire life changes for the better, even if at first he doesn’t even understand what hit him.  I adored Fiona from the first scene of the book and loved her by the end.  Not afraid to be herself, even if different, was enlightening to me and I thought her a most worthy heroine as well as the perfect mate to Tobias. 

I first discovered Christine Warren’s wolves and shape shifters novels at Ellora’s Cave and I can’t be more proud of the fact that her wonderful tales of mating, Alpha-ness, and just downright sexy shape shifters are now in mass market.  I have yet to read a Christine Warren book that I haven’t enjoyed and She’s No Faerie Princess was plain and simply just a stunningly fun book to read.  I can’t wait for the next installment!
