I didn't pay attention when I decided to purchase this audio book to the fact that it was a Harlequin. Had I known that, I probably would have turned up my nose and passed it by. In this case, however, I'm really glad I didn't notice until after the fact. So much for preconceived notions! It's a different kind of romance and is a great addition to the Urban Fantasy genre. It wasn't filled to the brim with what you think when you think Harlequin; in fact, I was pleasantly surprised that while there was attraction and care, the book wasn't all about getting the characters into bed. The female protagonist can hold her own and is a very strong character. Likewise, Alban can take care of himself. The storyline was at times predictable, but getting there was half the fun.

CE murphy has done it again. A new world -- the main charater learns about the "old Races" and helps them. Plan to get the second book to see how the races solve their modern day problems -- They need help and Margeret is the willing and has the skills and "grit" to do it
