Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Considering all the complications, sexual and otherwise, that Merry Gentry, heir to the faerie throne, endured in A Kiss of Shadows (2000) and A Caress of Shadows (2002), it's no surprise to find the start of Hamilton's third book in her erotic fantasy series weighed down by attempts to conversationally recap earlier convolutions. Even readers of the first two books might have problems sorting out exactly why Merry is messing with the goblin king via magic mirror. Though the author maintains interest through such devices as an imaginative sex scene involving Merry, two of her sidhe studs and a doll-sized, winged, blood-sucking demi-fey, it takes a milieu switch from L.A. to St. Louis and the Unseelie court for the plot to take off and become a page turner. Merry confronts faerie politics that make Machiavelli look like a rookie, while her aunt's sadistic madness leads to what must rank as one of the bloodier scenes of fictional slaughter. Since Merry's previous role as a private eye has almost completely disappeared, nefarious deeds require magic to solve rather than detection. Hamilton's trademark mix of the personal and emotional along with the sexual will as usual delight her fans. Add yet another tour de force ending, a new final total of 16 lustful sidhe male immortals with whom to couple (or triple or...), and a fair future is assured for Merry for at least another few books.

From Booklist

Last seen in A Caress of Twilight (2002), faerie princess Meredith NicEssus is still trying to conceive an heir so that she, and not her sadistic cousin Cel, can claim the Unseelie throne from her aunt, Andais. Luckily, Meredith has a bevy of buff bodyguards at her disposal, and the one who gets her pregnant will be king. She is also trying to broker the continuation of an alliance between the Unseelie people and the goblins, but the goblin king isn't cutting her many breaks. Her aunt is continuing to put increasing amounts of pressure on her, throwing more and more attractive men at her, hoping she'll produce that much-desired heir. Meredith journeys to her aunt's court, where a horrendous shock awaits her. Full of steamy sex scenes but a little light on plot, Seduced by Moonlight doesn't really pick up until Meredith heads to the Unseelie court. Despite the shortcomings, devoted Hamilton fans will enjoy the characters' connections and the rich, imaginative world they inhabit. Kristine Huntley

Ok. I have no problem with a few sexy scenes in a book, but when it becomes the entire focus, thats when I have a problem. Seduced By Moonlight was so slow in its first half that I came dangerously close to not even finishing it. The beginning chapters were just one page after another filled with wordy dream sequences and excuse after excuse to get Merry's men naked. I will be the first to admit that Merry's men are beyond beautiful and truly it is no hardship to get to "know" them intimately, but I need a plot, people! FINALLY, after speedreading through too many things that I could have done without, LKH pulled it all together and from midway on, the book became interesting. I thought that some of the violence in the books ending scenes was a bit over the top, but the last pages were fun to read as Merry settled in for the night and we were able to look in and listen to her and her suitors as they whispered to eachother while drifting off to sleep. I just love Rhys and I definitely felt like he stole the show in those last pages. All in all, this is a definite must read if you are a fan. There is too much going on at this point for me to stop reading the series and I hope that LKH comes out with the next book soon because I am very curious to see which man will become Merrys husband.

My gf introduced me to Meredith Gentry and, as silly as this may sound, I now compare every book I buy to this series. (As to all of our friends whom we have introduced to the series) It is beautifully descriptive, passionate, and it has an absolutely gripping plot that makes my mouth water in anticipation of the next novel. (soon please?) And yes, the third lives up to the other two, though I must admit the first is still my favorite - for the surprise factor at seeing such wonderful writing if nothing else.
First off, let me answer some of the criticisms of this book before it turns you off and you miss out. Some reviewers said there was too much sex in this last novel/this series. Yes, there is a lot of sex, but it is Really hot sex for both male and female readers and it is very well incorporated and explained. It is also very well depicted with the kind of imagery that outshines Anne Rice while still keeping a good plot. For those who do not think the amount of sex sounded believable, try to keep in mind the characters are fay. Not Tolkien's elves, not puritan shoe faries, fay - and if you have done research on what that word meant to the cultures that coined it you would know this is not really a stretch. And if you have done research you will be pleasantly surprised to find that Hamilton has done her research too and incorporated it perfectly. Now, if you do want nice, censored novels that do not challenge you or provide any visuals inappropriate for children then by all means skip this one. And if you are not particularly sensual or are somewhat conservative then again, skip this one. But if you are ok with reading something naughty and want to get away from the traditional 'vampire bites neck.. er.. sensually' then this is a must-read.
Now, on to the actual book.

Format: Hardcover
Between Hamilton's last Anita Blake book and the reviews for this one, I wasn't expecting much, and aside from occasional glimmers of plot between the heavy breathing, I didn't get it. What plot there is consists of Merry having sex, Merry acquiring a new power, Merry getting new men, and Merry not getting pregnant. In between there are the requisite Unseelie Court politcs plus an attempt or two to kill Merry. Alas, this storyline has become pretty formulaic by now, even though "Seduced by Moonlight" is only the third book in the series. Too many descriptions of glowing sidhe magic, floor-length male hair, and thrilling touches made this reader's eyes glaze over.
Nonetheless, Hamilton is a talented writer. Her descriptions, when they're not repetitive, make for some fine reading. She has a surprisingly lyrical touch at times and can even come up with some interesting plot twists. Unfortunately these gifts get lost under the verbiage, and "Seduced by Moonlight" is mediocre at best.

On the positive side, Merry is still alive, despite the best efforts of her Unseelie enemies. On the other side, despite her and her macho harem's best work, she is not pregnant. Other things are happening though. Merry's personal magic is growing by leaps and bounds, and her touch is enough to bring back powers others have lost, and then some. Even that does not endear her to the sidhe who see her as a miserable half breed, or worse. Someone is willing to risk the anger of the Queen of Air and Darkness to assassinate the royal heir. They are even willing to bespell the queen herself. When Merry and Auntie Dearest lay aside past squabbles to unite against the enemy for a magical showdown, the duel is one well worth the price of admission.
**** Merry Gentry is much more intense than the Anita Blake books. Despite having to rely on her guards for protection, Merry does not appear at all weak. At times, your brain will be stretched, trying to picture the fantastic creatures invented for the series, but at their hearts, even the strangest displays extremely human emotions that you can recognize. Be advised, you need to A. refresh your memory on who's who or what in the prior books as the cast continually expands and B. it's definitely NC 17. ****
