Trailer Park Fae (Gallow and Ragged)

Trailer Park Fae (Gallow and Ragged) - Lilith Saintcrow Jeremy Gallow has left his past behind, but some things cannot be erased, like the tattoos on his arms that transform into a weapon, or that he was once closer to the Queen of Summer than any half-human should be. Now the half-sidhe all in Summer once feared is dragged back into the world of enchantment, danger, and fickle fae—by a woman who looks uncannily like his dead wife. Her name is Robin, and her secrets are more than enough to get them both killed. A plague has come, the fullborn-fae are dying, and the dark answer to Summer's Court is breaking loose.

I just realized -- several days after I finished this -- that I had Lilith Saintcrow mixed up in my head with Laurell K. Hamilton. And that's terribly unfair of me, since I really did love the Dante Valentine series so much. So, when reading this book, I was nervous for it to devolve into an all-out orgy sex scene, at which point I’d probably put it down. But it never did, and I enjoyed it. I do think it was overwritten to some degree -- the flowery language got distracting at times, rather than enhancing the scenery -- but I enjoyed it and the next book is already on my to-read list.
