Taken by the Huntsman
Taken by the Huntsman is the first of Mistral Dawn’s books set in the magical land of Faerie.

As I mentioned in a previous post, in the past I have avoided PNR. The idea of humans and supernatural creatures being involved in intimate relations just seemed bizarre to me. But Mistral Dawn’s novels came highly recommended and since I reviewed PNR in the past and found it to be more or less palatable, I went ahead and gave Taken by the Hunstman a go.
