They say that when one door closes, another opens, but when Erica made her choice to stop a madman, she couldn't have imagined the price that she would have to pay. The future she'd risked everything for has just changed forever.
The existence of the Dark Fae and their Goddess comes as a shock, but the fates have one more surprise in store for Erica and her mates in the form of orphaned twin babies who steal their hearts—but these children are not like the Fae Erica is familiar with. They come with powers that she and her husbands know nothing about. The Dark Fae council will watch over them to decide if they are capable of raising the twins, making Ben, Erica, and Leo feel the pressure of having their every move scrutinized.
When the twins' dark powers begin to emerge, will one Fae Queen and two warrior shifters have what it takes to navigate the uncertain waters of parenting … and will the Dark Fae council agree to let them try?

She made a decision to save lives. It had a very personal cost. The love of her mates keeps her going but there is an emptiness knowing she will never have biological children. When she is given another chance at motherhood, she will do anything to keep the children she has grown to love.
Erica, Ben and Leo were brought together by fate and meant to be mates. She is a member of the Fae who was tasked with saving the Fae and other supernaturals from a tyrant. Ben and Leo are wolf shifters who have been determined to protect their mate from the first time they find her in jeopardy. They have formed a loving triad and been able to bring some peace to those who have suffered. Personally, they still have a loss. In her battle to save others, Erica's ability to have a child was taken from her. Fate later brings them Finn and Ellie, two young Fae who were orphaned. It completes their family. Everything seems to be leading to happiness until others question their ability to parent these young children with strong abilities.
The series goes in a different direction with this book. It is not as action packed and full of battles against evil as the other books. It is a more intimate look at the characters from the first book in the series, Chasing Faete. In the third book, they were given custody of two young fae children. Now, that custody arrangement is threatened. They must prove that they can provide the right environment for these children they have grown to love as their own or risk having them taken away forever.
I would highly recommend you read all the books in the series in order to get the most enjoyment. You should at a minimum read the first book which introduces you to the characters. I really don't think you will connect as deeply to the story if you don't have that previous exposure to the story. This is really a continuation of their story and is a real treat for those who wanted more time with the characters and to see how they would face the consequences of her choice. I am glad the authors chose to offer this book rather than moving on to another couple and only giving the reader a little interaction with the these earlier characters. So often, you don't get that follow-up and are left with a lot of questions.
This book brings the focus of the series back to the first triad - Erica, Ben and Leo. They fought so hard to keep everyone safe and suffered a huge personal cost. Her taking a life meant she would never have children. In this fourth book in the series, we get a chance to visit with those characters as they face another battle. This time it is very personal. They have fallen in love with the two Fae children they were given to care for and now those arrangements are in jeopardy. It is an intimate look at their family and a real treat for those who have been reading the whole series and wanting to see how they faced their pain. It is not the book I would choose to introduce you to the series and I highly recommend the story only if you have already read at least the first book in the series. It is a great series for those who enjoy menage romances with paranormal characters. I really hope the authors continue to offer more books in the series and give us more time with the characters we have grown to really love.

CATCHING FAETE is a short but sweet novella that gives more information about Erica, Leo, and Ben, and the twins that were given to them. Even though it was ordained by the Goddesses, there are still some on the council who think that the twins should be raised by Dark Fae. So Aneena comes to watch them for a fortnight, to then report back to Alak, Aeron, and the council about their suitability. Now for anyone who has ever looked after a baby, whether you were the parent or not, there is a scene is this book that literally had me laughing aloud as I have dealt with more than one baby who had 'exploded'. I'm thinking that there must be some personal experience that went into the writing of that scene. The whole novella though is beautifully written, with tender, poignant scenes, and scenes that will get your pulse racing and your temperature rising.
Although short, you get all that you need in this book, whilst the authors still drop hints and teasers about what might be coming next. Extremely well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow, I thoroughly enjoyed this little addition. Absolutely recommended by me.
