October "Toby" Daye should have learned long ago that when a job looks easy, that's when you should write your will, pay up your insurance, and run the other way. But when Sylvester, the Duke of the Shadowed Hills, and her liege, asks her to check on January O'Leary in the County of Tamed Lightning because he hadn't heard from her in a while -- it seemed simple and she should have known better.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Now comes the second in the series-from a dynamic new fantasy talent! Toby Daye-a half-human, half-fae changeling-has been an outsider from birth. After getting burned by both sides of her heritage, Toby has denied the fae world, retreating to a "normal" life. Unfortunately for her, the Faerie world had other ideas...

Now her liege, the Duke of the Shadowed Hills, has asked Toby to go to the Country of Tamed Lightening to make sure all is well with his niece, Countess January O'Leary. It seems like a simple enough assignment-until Toby discovers that someone has begun murdering people close to January, and that if the killer isn't stopped, January may be the next victim.
