Okay, these are few and far between. SCIENCE FICTION ROMANCE! I don't know why I love them, but I do. And you just don't find many around, so every one is worth a read. This one could be called ROMANTIC SCI-FI because you get plenty of romance. The Goblin King lives under Motor City and our heroine must travel there to fight the enemies of mankind. Jack Frost, her companion in the underworld is much more than just a sorcerer...he rules the realms of love and death. Fascinating!

Much of the action in Jackson's (The Selkie) paranormal romance takes place in a city that seems just like present-day Detroit, with one difference: this Motor City is home to an underground nightmare city populated by refugee goblins expelled from Europe. Though seemingly grateful for their new world haven, the foul-smelling goblins have in fact secretly replaced the nation's leading industrialists, including Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, with deodorized doubles-and the takeover trail may lead much higher. Pitted against mysterious goblin leader Horroban and his six-limbed, four-breasted rock star girlfriend are "siren fey" Io Cyphre, who's a H.U.G. (Humans Under Ground) magical agent, and charismatic cop Jonathan "Jack" Frost, who's half fairy. A deliciously playful tone, especially in the banter between Io and Jack, makes this a fun, light read.

This is book #1. What fun it was to read about the world Jackson wrote about here. I wasnt really expecting to get so caught up in this story but once I started reading it I had a hard time putting it down.

Evil forces were on the rise, and Io was part of a secret association dedicated to stopping them. Lutins were replacing society's bigwigs and no one was safe. The only solution was to infiltrate the menace, travel beneath the Motor City into the hordes thronging Goblin Town, rendezvous with Jack Frost and uncover the plot.

The quest would lead to the monster band SEXXX and then to Horroban, the goblins' never-before-seen king. It would force Io through labyrinths of vice; challenge every aspect of her incomplete training. And if enemies weren't enough, her ally would imperil her heart. Arcane power was a matter of course in Goblin Town, but Jack Frost was much more than a simple sorcerer: He ruled the realms of love and death.

Yet in Jack's hands, a little death could be a very, very good thing.
