Pregnant, possessed, and in love with a man I don't dare to trust—those are the consequences of the risks I took to save my life. But Faerie, the land of blood and magic, is filled with bitter ironies, and the bargains I made now threaten me and my unborn child.
The darkly sensual fae noble Rogue still tempts me to danger and desire. As we await the birth of our child, I've been forced to question whether our offspring is part of a bargain Rogue once made to save himself. He can't tell me the truth due to a spell the vicious Queen Titania has him under. Would he betray our family against his will? Could I ever forgive him if he does?
Rogue insists on an eternal commitment from me, even as Titania's forces close in on us. I don't know if Rogue and I can withstand her onslaught, or that of the beast within me. But I will not stop looking for answers—even if it brings the walls of Faerie crashing down.

Whooo… well THAT was a roller coaster! For everyone in the book, and definitely for the reader!
I have always been fascinated by the Fae and their realms, the rules, the bargains, and the Wild Hunt. I’ve read actual educational books about them (I can’t call them “non-fiction” books because of the subject matter, I suppose) as well as many fiction based books involving them. Jeffe Kennedy has captured them in a way that encompasses everything I have ever imagined.
A favor will always cost you a price of equal value (up to and including your first born child); magical weapons are just as dangerous as tangible weapons, and the power of the mind and imagination knows few boundaries. Almost every social norm you know as a human is completely flip-flopped in the land of the Fae. And Jeffe Kennedy knows it too!
The wild ride that she brings you on, along with Gwynn (from a first person POV), captures you and draws you in. I hate summarizing books because I feel the book description should do enough to draw you in and then you should read it for yourself — and you should! Read it for yourself, that is.
One bit I’d like to point out is that, as much of a hassle (for lack of a better word) as it is for Gwynn, I kind of wish I, too, had a cat spirit inside of me that somehow allowed me metal claws whenever I needed them… Then again, that might be a bad thing because I’d probably go to jail very quickly after someone said something stupid to me… Hmm… If only I could find a way to escape to the land of the Faerie.
Let it be known that this is not a standalone book. I had to go back and reread the second book just to remember where we’d left off. So if you haven’t read “Rogue’s Pawn” or “Rogue’s Possession” yet, buy all three and read them right away!
And on that note, buy more books by Jeffe Kennedy because she is an amazing author who deserves to be more widely known and recognized as such. She will respond to her fans directly, she keeps an open dialogue and her books are fantastic.
So 5 out of 5, buy this book. Read this book. Love this book!
