Synopsis (Goodreads):
After making a diplomatic pact with humankind and the other leaders of the Elder Races, Pia Cuelebre, mate to Dragos Cuelebre, Lord of the Wyr, reluctantly heads to Hollywood to spend a week with the Light Fae Queen, Tatiana, before the busy Masque season hits New York in December.

Dragos has never let the lack of an invitation stop him from doing anything he wanted. Unwilling to let his mate make the trip without him, he travels to southern California in secret to be with her.

But when an ancient enemy launches a shattering assault against the Light Fae, Dragos and Pia must intercede. The destruction threatens to spread and strike a mortal blow against all of the magically gifted, both human and Elder Race alike.

Working with the Light Fae to neutralize the danger, Dragos and Pia find their deepest vulnerabilities challenged and their most closely held secrets threatened with exposure.
Thoughts on Pia Does Hollywood: OH, how I love the Cuelebres. Dragos and his arrogant, demanding, but utterly devoted ways. Pia and her dedication to seeing things through. They're just so intense. It tickles me pink how consumed they are by one another. And how they don't let their deep commitment to each other take away from their time with Liam.

Don't think that just because this is a novella, it skimps on story. We got to see some of the ramifications from Dragos's memory loss (oopsies!) and how he's planning ahead for a future that might see the Wyr leaving all they've known behind. Plus, there's the newest addition to the Cuelebre family and everything that entails. And, you know, zombies. So, yeah. There's plenty of story here.

I always get a giddy little thrill when we see mentions of events that took place in previous books. While Melly's abduction in book 8 ultimately didn't impact the Wyr, it hit close to home for both Tatiana and Bailey. Seeing the fallout from that through Pia's eyes intrigued me.

Honestly, I adore this series like whoa and am happy to spend as much time as I can in this world. It's crazy and complicated and even when I *know* things are going to turn out just fine, I get a little tense waiting for it to happen. Which is AWESOME!
