I swear 90% of this book was exposition. ( )

This is a re-write of one of the original stories from Ellora's Cave. The hero and heroine of this story are Lucifer "Luc" Macanaw and Corinne D'Alessandro. I am thinking that I like the older stories more than the newer ones. The characters didn't take so long to get together in the originals. Anyway I like the story mostly because it gives the reader a glimpse into the Summer Court of Faerie. I liked Luc, as I have with most of the male characters, he is all alpha male and caring mate at once. I liked the twist in the plot about who the bad guys was and how everyone came together to catch the crazy Other. There is a enough humor to keep the story from dragging and enough suspense to keep it from being to draggy. The overall story is a good addition to the paranormal genre and fans should enjoy it. ( )

The New York Chronicle isn't exactly a scandal rag, but it's not the New York Times, either. Still, reporter Corinne D'Alessandro is definitely not happy about her latest assignment: track down a six-foot tall, gorgeous elf who's been spotted walking through walls in Manhattan. Her two best friends may have married Others, but Corinne's sworn off inter-species dating, so tracking the hottest man on two feet has absolutely no appeal. Still, she figures she'd better notify the powers-that-be before she writes her story...

The captain of the Queen Mab's guard is about as pleased to be sent after the her straying nephew as Corinne is about her latest assignment. At least that is, until he spots Corinne.

Of course there's a HEA in their future, and the plot's fairly thin but the snarky exchanges between Luc and Corinne are well worth the read. ( )

Not your Ordinary Faerie Tale, Book #12 of the Others series
Author: Christine Warren

After her two best friends marry a blood-sucking vampire and furry-faced werewolf, Corinne D’Alessandro is making a vow of her own: NO interspecies dating. But when her editor asks her to investigate “leprechaun” sightings, the sassy New York reporter finds herself on the trail of the hottest story of the year—and the sexiest man alive…
His name is Luc, and he’s as gorgeous as any Prince Charming in any bedtime story. There’s just one problem: He’s not human, he’s fae. A captain of the Fae Queen’s Guard, Luc is on a dangerous mission—and he could use the help of a certain leprechaun-hunting reporter. But when their two worlds collide, the sparks begin to fly. If Corinne and Luc can’t control their lust—and focus on the villains in this story—their faerie-tale romance won’t end happily ever after…
Our Review [by Michelle L. Olson – LITERAL ADDICTION’s Pack Alpha]:
This book came up in my Amazon recommendations list. I snatched it up because it looked good, only to read it and find that it was the best Fae book I had ever read.
Christine Warren is an amazing story teller. Her characters are witty, strong, independent, and identifiable and her story is well crafted and fluid.
I found out after starting this book that it is actually the 12th of the Others series, but I wasn’t lost at all (though I did read somewhere that this was actually a rewrite of a story done with Ellora’s Cave and therefore was more standalone than the other of the series).
Corinne is a reporter with multiple friends who have become involved with or married members of the supernatural community. She has basically sworn that while she loves them, she will never be one to date outside of her species.
Luc is the captain of the guard for Queen Mab of the Summer Court. He is sent to the human realm to find and bring home the queen’s nephew, Seoc, before he can cause too much trouble and spill the secret of the Others.
The minute Luc sees Corinne he feels something he has never felt before, and 1 touch is all it takes for him to know that it’s more than just idle attraction. Once some things are brought to light, Luc can no longer deny that Corinne is his heartmate and he knows that he’ll do anything to keep her by his side.
Corinne plays coy and puts on a good poker face, but she can’t deny the feelings that Luc imparts. After teaming up to find Seoc together, thus getting her story for her boss, keeping her friends safe and helping Luc with his mission, one things leads to another and she is helpless to do anything but feel.
LITERAL ADDICTION gives Not your Ordinary Faerie Tale 5 skulls and would recommend it to everyone – Paranormal Romance lovers, Urban Fantasy readers, and anyone who likes strong, witty female leads, sexy, alpha, sensitive male leads, and a story with just enough twists and turns to keep you engaged from the 1st to the last page.
