The first book in an extraordinary new urban fantasy series based in a Melbourne populated with beautifully imagined fairies. Perfect for fans of Laurell K Hamilton and Karen Marie Moning!
Welcome to a secret world hidden behind shadowy fairy glamour, where thieving sprites rob you blind, beautiful banshees mesmerise you with their song, big green trolls kick heads at King St nightclubs and sadistic vampire Mafiosi rule the Carlton streets. Here life as a soul-sucking succubus rarely involves lacy lingerie, hot guys or great sex. Instead, Jade must spend her nights seducing gangsters and murderers, or simpering as a trophy girl for hell's minions. Her quest for freedom brings her face to face with Rajah, a 400-year-old incubus who's been pitted against her.
Rajah's raw sensuality makes him both a formidable adversary and an irresistible lover. But when she discovers the key to breaking her bonds, she faces the ultimate choice: win her freedom and doom Rajah to a lifetime of servitude, or spend eternity in hell so Rajah can escape?

Comments about Shadowfae:
This is a book really different than the others on the market, but for me it didn't really come off as an unforgettable read.
Comments about Shadowfae:
Not the best chick lit book I've ever read, but not the worst either. There is some rough writing in there, but overall its not a bad book. Plenty of raunchy sex scenes which were very engaging. The plot was quite predictable, and lacking in any depth. There are some original ideas and has the potential to be fantastic, just needs a little more plot involvement, not just sex then a plot on the side.
It's always so much fun to discover a new author, especially a new Australian author. Especially a new Australian author who has an awesome sense of humour as is evidenced by her award-winning costume at this year's Romance Writers of Australia cocktail party. Let me set the scene: it was a hot August night in Brisbane. The ballroom of the CBD hotel was crowded. The theme was Arabian Nights. Harem girls and genies abounded. Suddenly there she was, in thigh highs and a veil, and a sign reading The Sheikh's
Reluctant Dead Keen Virgin Bride.
What's even better than a local author with a sense of humour? A local author with a sense of humour who's written a pretty freakin' awesome debut novel. Shadowfae is addictive and compulsive, dark and deadly, and downright impressive.
"A thrilling and darkly erotic tale of betrayal, passion and redemption, SHADOWFAE is a rich novel that will ensnare the senses with lush prose and a deadly vision of the Fae that conjures fairy tales of old." --Caitlin Kittredge, bestselling author of "Second Skin"
"SHADOWFAE is a mind bending blast into a darkness that enfolds and ensnares you from the first page...Pure magic from the word go" -"Bitten By Books"
