This is no fairy tale...

Haunted by nightmares of a black dog, sick to death of my mind-numbing career and heart-numbing fiance, I impulsively walked out of my life--and fell into Faerie. Terrified, fascinated, I discover I possess a power I can't control: my wishes come true. After an all-too-real attack by the animal from my dreams, I wake to find myself the captive of the seductive and ruthless fae lord Rogue. In return for my rescue, he demands an extravagant price--my firstborn child, which he intends to sire himself...

With no hope of escaping this world, I must learn to harness my magic and build a new life despite the perils--including my own inexplicable and debilitating desire for Rogue. I swear I will never submit to his demands, no matter what erotic torment he subjects me to.

Jennifer is unhappy with her life and ready to make a change, but she never dreamed running from her fiancé and old life would lead her into Faerie. It’s a world where we can find magic pillows, big black dogs, a Darling cat and wishes do come true. 

Be careful what you wish for takes on a whole new meaning as we watch Jennifer fight to survive in this new place. Everyone seems to want a piece of her and why wouldn’t they? She’s not only powerful, but she’s beautiful as well. You can’t help but like her strength and determination to survive what few would be able to. In a land with no friends, she is constantly avoiding traps as she looks for a means of escape. Even from Rogue, the one who saved her life.

Rogue and Jennifer are both great characters. They probably shouldn’t be together but you can’t help but want them to be. Jennifer fights the attraction as hard as she can, but who could fight Rogue or really want to? He’s super sexy.

This was a great read that took us to a wonderful new world. My only complaint would be that I wanted the first book to take me farther into the story than it did. I will definitely be reading book two and can’t wait to see what happens with Rogue and Jennifer.
