I recently read Shadowlander by Theresa Meyer and enjoyed it thoroughly.
Cate O'Connell is from a family of seers- humans who can see the Fae. Usually very good at keeping to her family's 3 rules preventing their exposure, she breaks them all when she sees her friend, Maya, abducted by the Fae. She reveals her skill as a seer to Rook, a very attractive Fae who has been watching her for years, so she could try to free Maya.
The story is told by both Cate and Rook in turn, which can be disorienting at times, but gives the reader a look at what is driving both characters. My only complaint was the length. I think the novella length forced this steamy romance to move a little quickly. This was book one and I'm looking forward to reading book two.
Four sisters, three rules to live by, one big problem.
O’Connell Family Rule #1: Don’t let the Fae know you see them.
O’Connell Family Rule #2: Don’t talk to the Fae.
O’Connell Family Rule #3: Never, ever follow them.
Most people only believe what they can see. Gifted with the ability to see the deep, dark fae of Shadowland, Catherine Rowan Mary O’Connell would prefer not to. When the fae abduct her friend Maya, Cate breaks the scared O’Connell Family Rules and sets a trap for the handsome fae who haunts her every step.
Rook, High Court Advisor to the Shadow King, has been following Cate since she was sixteen. When Cate reveals herself as one of the fabled “Seers”, Rook is stunned—she is one of the few that can permanently open the gates between their worlds. If he turns her over to the Shadow King, his court will rule the human realm.
Cate knows she has precious little time to find Maya. By midnight, the glamour of Mid-Summer’s Eve will fade, leaving her trapped forever in the Shadowland, but Maya’s abductor won’t give up the woman he’s mesmerized easily.
The midnight hour is almost at hand. Cate must choose: her freedom or her destiny.
