Publisher's Summary

"I am Princess Meredith, heir to a throne of fairie. My day job, once upon a time, was as a private detective in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, princess has now become a full-time occupation."My aunt, Queen Andais, will have it no other way. And so I am virtually a prisoner in fairie - trapped here with some of the realm's most beautiful men to serve as my bodyguards...and my lovers. For I am compelled to conceive a child: an heir to succeed me on the throne."Yet after months of amazing sex with my consorts, there is still no baby. And no baby means no throne. The only certainty is death at the hands of my cousin Cel, or his followers, if I fail to conceive."Now Mistral, Queen Andais' new captain of the guard, has come to my bed - defying her and risking her terrible wrath in doing so. But even she will hesitate to punish him in jealous rage, because our joining has reawakened old magic - mystical power so ancient that no one stands against it and survives, not even my strongest and most favored: my Darkness and my Killing Frost. Not even Mistral himself, my Storm Lord. But because Mistral has helped to bring this magic forth, he may live another day."If I can reclaim control of the fey power that once was, there may be hope for me and my reign in fairie. I might yet quell the dark schemes and subterfuges surrounding me. Though shadows of obsession and conspiracy gather, I may survive."


What the Critics Say

"Lots of earth-shattering, supernatural sex and a rousing climactic battle will have Hamilton's fans panting for more." (Publishers Weekly)

Poor Doyle!

Another great story. I really love the way these characters are developing slowly as the series progresses. Everyone, especially Frost and Gaylan are getting much better at their initial weaknesses. The sex is much too drawn out and tends to stall the story from moving forward. That's ok though. I can get past the disk-long orgies because the story line is otherwise great. The characters are really good too. I would love it if the narrator would stick with pronouncing the characters names in a consistent way. Doyle was "Doyle" in books one and two, "Dole" in books three, back to "Doyle" in book four, and now back to Dole. I realize the pronunciation guide says that his name is pronounced "Dole", but stick with the same darned name! It's distracting, and quite frankly disrespectful to the author. Not to mention poor Darkness! I wish he'd pop out of the story with Mortal Dread and give the narrator a little slice... :)

Doyle does not equal DOLE!!!

If you could sum up Mistral's Kiss in three words, what would they be?

I love the story but Laural Merlington flubs up the pronunciation again!! She must of recorded books 3 and 5 together because they have same weird pronunciations of characters, places and key story line components. I'm hoping the book 6 is goes back to how she read in books 1, 2 and 4.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Inconsistent pronunciation from book to book in the series.
