Once upon a time, fairies were the stuff of bedtime stories and
sweet dreams. Then came the mutations, and the dre-ams became
nightmares. Mosquito-size fairies now indulge their taste for human
blood-and for most humans, a fairy bite means insanity or death.
Luckily, Annabelle Lee isn't most humans. The hard-drinking,
smart-mouthed, bicycle-riding redhead is immune to fairy venom, and
able to do the dirty work most humans can't. Including helping law
enforcement- and Cane Cooper, the bayou's sexiest detective-collect
evidence when a body is discovered outside the fairy-proof
barricades of her Louisiana town.
But Annabelle isn't equipped to deal with the murder of a
sixyear- old girl or a former lover-turned-FBI snob taking an
interest in the case. Suddenly her already bumpy relationship with
Cane turns even rockier, and even the most trust-worthy friends
become suspects. Annabelle's life is imploding: between
relationship drama, a heartbreaking murder investigation,
Breeze-crazed drug runners, and a few too many rum and Cokes,
Annabelle is a woman on the run-from her past, toward her future,
and into the arms of a darkness waiting just for her. . . .
"A sultry start to a promising new series. Dead on the
