Review: Motor City Fae (Urban Arcana #1) by Cindy Spencer Pape

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Detroit artist Meagan Kelly has had a strong sixth sense all her life, but that doesn't mean the gorgeous stranger's crazy story—that she's a half-elf, half human heiress—is true. But Meagan can't deny the evidence of her own eyes—he's Fae. A tall, blond, handsome, pointy-eared elf—and a man she just can't get enough of.

Ric Thornhill's assignment just got a lot more complicated. The more time he spends with Meagan, the harder it is to see her as a political tool to prevent an all-out war between humans and Fae.

Now Meagan's in a race to master her newly released powers in time to prevent the conflict, convince a jealous Queen not to strip Ric of his powers, and find out if she can build a life that straddles two worlds.
My Thoughts: Why did it take me so long to pick up this series?  It's fun!  It's sexy!  It has fae who are a little edgy!  And some of them are bad!  And some of them are wicked!  And some of them I want to read moooooorrrrrre about.

Ric has a certain sexy something that worked for me.  He's been given a tough task by the Queen and it's made even tougher when he falls for Meagan.  I liked the guy.  He's blindsided by his attraction to her and he's unable to keep away.  Meagan has a lot to deal with once she learns who she is.  She goes from being a normal human artist to a noble in the Queen's court.  All in the space of a day.  She handles it well, all things considered.  I'm fairly certain I would have been whimpering in the corner if I had to deal with everything she had to deal with.  Which is, you know, why I read books.  So that I can see how the other people would react.  Right?  Right.

I loved the world, I thought the characters were fabulous and I liked that there could be so many different stories told here.  Bring it, Cindy Spencer Pape, I'm ready!
