"Merry Gentry, ex-private detective, now full-time princess, knew she was descended from fertility goddesses, but when she learned she was about to have triplets, she began to understand what that might mean. Infertility has plagued the high ranks of faerie for centuries. Now nobles of both courts of faerie are coming to court Merry and her men, at their home in exile in the Western Lands of Los Angeles, because they will do anything to have babies of their own. Taranis, King of Light and Illusion, is a more dangerous problem. He tried to seduce Merry and, failing that, raped her. He's using the human courts to sue for visitation rights, claiming that one of the babies is his. And though Merry knows she was already pregnant when he took her, she can't prove it. To save herself and her babies from Taranis she will use the most dangerous powers in all of faerie: a god of death, a warrior known as the Darkness, the Killing Frost, and a king of nightmares. They are her lovers, and her dearest loves, and they will face down the might of the high courts of faerie--while trying to keep the war from spreading to innocent humans in Los Angeles, who are in danger of becoming collateral damage" -- from publisher's web site.

The first for a long time that isn't just a string of 'sex scenes'
I enjoyed it more due to that but did find it a bit short on plot which is a shame as the opportunity was there when the other stuff was absent.

A nice renewal of the series despite some negative reviews I read on www.goodreads.com. Not a thick plot, but lots of politics and machinations between the courts of fairy as always.

You should have prefaced your comment with a 'Spoiler Alert' - thanks a lot.
