Seduced By Moonlight
Laurell K. Hamilton
Ballantine, Feb 2004, $23.95, 366 pp.
ISBN 034544356X

When President Jefferson invited the fae to make their home in America on the condition they would not set themselves up as destroyers, they had no choice but to accept. No other country wanted them and to keep their cultural identity they gave up much of their powers. Now the courts of the Sealie and Unsealie are dying, with very few children born to carry on the line.

Queen Andais of the Unsealie court has made her son and her niece compete for the throne with the first one to get pregnant or to get someone with child named the heir. Princess Merry is worried that even with her own harem she remains barren but also worries that her magic is growing in her and she doesn’t know how to control it, a dangerous position to be in when many Sidhe want her dead.

Many people think it’s a dream come true to have a harem but the princess knows that some of the shallower men only want her to take the throne so they can share in her power. SEDUCED BY MOONLIGHT is a magical romantic fantasy that will charm anyone who reads it. There are many surprises concerning the heroine and the author brilliantly sets the stage for the storyline of the next book in the series. Laurell K. Hamilton remains one of this reviewer’s top ten favorite authors, a slot she has held for years (but not as far back as the Jefferson Presidency).
