Erotic Romance, Ménage or more, Paranormal Romance, Vamps & Shifters Romance
Erica's been on the run from her parents' murderer for years, but her luck at evading capture has finally run out. She finds herself trapped by the man who tortured her for years, but she's prepared to fight him rather than go back to the Fae King. She almost thinks she's hallucinating when two wolf shifters appear out of nowhere to save her … but that could be the blood loss talking.
Leo and Ben were thrilled to stumble onto the scent of their mate as they were on a routine patrol. They follow their noses and barely find her in time, wounded and battling with a group of armed Fae. Life is about to get a whole lot more complicated when it comes to mating their little pixie.
Erica can't deny the bond she feels with her wolves, but will the need to avenge her family and the fate of the Fae realm cost her the loves she's waited

CHASING FAETE is Book 1 in the Beyond the Veil series by Elena Kincaid, Maia Dylan and Sarah Marsh, and it begins spectacularly well. From the inner thoughts of Erica, the fae running from the Fae King, to wolf shifter brothers, Leo and Ben, her mates, who stumble upon her scent during a routine patrol, this was a great read from start to finish.
I will admit that seeing three authors on this story made me pause. In my reading experience, I've found that when there's more than one author, it's often easy to discern the different writers within the story, which I find a distraction. But in this case, if all three actively contributed content, the blending is relatively seamless and I loved much of the imagery.
There are so many good aspects to this story, from Erica's healer skills as fae (and royalty) to the brothers' need to protect someone who clearly doesn't need much protecting, the interactions between all the characters significantly upped my entertainment level as I was led on an emotional ride that kept me turning those pages.
Unfortunately, war is brewing and with all good stories, evil must perish so that our heroes/heroine may have their happily ever after. But do they? What lines are willingly crossed in order to save so many? When the story ends, there are secrets still hidden.
AND…since this IS an erotic romance, I will add that the sensual scenes between Erica, Leo and Ben are fantastic and I will admit to reading this story twice before writing this review.
This has all the ingredients for a great story: fae, shifters, chemistry, well-drawn up characters, drama, grief, war, and scintillating scenes. I am looking forward to reading other stories in this series as they come out.
*Note: This story does contain mild BDSM elements, MFM interactions, warm loving embraces, hot sex scenes, and magick.

CHASING FAETE is the first book in the Beyond the Veil series, written seamlessly by three authors. We meet Erica after she has escaped her home realm, after being imprisoned by the False King for years. She has also been tortured by his Captain, and so looks forward to her revenge. She is saved from an outnumbered fight by two wolves, and they all find out that they are mated. However, they don't get their HEA straight away as Erica has obligations to her kingdom.
We meet three different shifter groups, plus the Elven characters. Each group is incredibly well written, with their characteristics well described. I have no idea which author wrote which bit, but this is all to the good. It really is seamless, going from one scene to the next, from one character to the next smoothly.
As the first novella in a new series, this book has a lot of work to do to give the reader an idea of the world in which it belongs, but CHASING FAETE does an amazing job of this. Not only that, but it leads nicely onto the next book, definitely leaving you wanting more. Recommended by me.
