Synopsis from Goodreads:
Julia Taylor works as a recruitment consultant for Paranormal Personnel in London. Her normal day at the office consists of seeing clients, searching for new vacancies, updating CVs and visiting employers.

It seems as though she has an ordinary life but in reality Julia is half elf and she works for a recruitment agency for paranormals. 

She is normally calm, confident and is not afraid to stand up for herself, but when the meeting with La Caz Corporation doesn’t go as well as she hoped, she wants to bury herself under the ground and die. 

Nathaniel La Caz is a player and he wants to seduce Julia. The incredible sexual chemistry that builds up between them complicates her life to the point where she can’t control her magic. La Caz not only wants her but he also has a craving for her blood. Then her ex-boyfriend Jasper comes back on the scene and nearly exposes the whole paranormal world to humans when trying to protect her.

It doesn't end well when vampires and elves mix. The problems start escalating when Julia witnesses the kidnapping of her cousin Claudia on the busy street. From then on things only go from bad to worst. More elves and fairies begin to vanish in London without trace and the police suspect vampires. Julia is determined to find Claudia even if it means she will get herself into more trouble.

*Adult Paranormal Romance novel - contains adult situations, graphic sexuality, violence, suited for ages 18 and up*

My Review:
3 out of 5 stars
Set in London, England, Julia Taylor is employed by a paranormal recruitment agency, Paranormal Personnel.  Every day is pretty routine until Nathaniel La Caz enters through the door of the agency.  Needing help recruiting workers for his business, he is instantly attracted to Julia and will not stop until he gets what he wants.  Nathaniel is everything a women wants....he's rich and oh so sexy! When several fairies and elves including Julia’s cousin, Claudia, vanish without a trace, Julia's boring life gets a little more exciting. 

This was a very intriguing story that was totally different than anything I have read before.  Elves, fairies, giants, vampires, wizards, mermaids, witches, trolls and werewolves, oh my!  This book about covers them all!  But even with such magical creatures, this one is for mature audiences only due to language and some very naughty scenes.

The story is packed full of mystery and suspense with some hot steamy sex thrown in to spice things up. The plot was interesting and very intriguing.  The premise of the story really is good, and the characters are awesome.   There were some noticeable grammar and punctuation errors, and at times misuse of some words, however; they really did not take away from the story.  I believe that once the editing issues corrected, this book will definitely be a 5 star winner.
