Description

In this rowdy and raunchy urban fantasy, Lyla escaped an arranged marriage by accepting a deal from a jinni -- to live a thousand years as a jinni herself. Now, with her millennia nearly up, she's hiding out in a seedy Pittsburgh swarming with vampires, jinni and magical beings.

Meet Lyla, a thousand-year-old Jinn, a belly dancer, and the hottest new urban fantasy heroine in town.

With her thousand-year-long servitude ending, Lyla faces a few serious obstacles to freedom. A Magi intent on binding her again, a jinni bent on vengeance, and not to mention the nightmare from her past that threatens to make her curse permanent -- and claim her very soul.

"Jinn and Juice is a raucous, raunchy tale well told. One thing's certain: you'll never look at Pittsburgh the same way after you've taken Nicole Peeler's mythic joyride up, down, and sideways in pursuit of an abducted teenage girl and freedom from a thousand-year curse. Legend and history, betrayal and love intertwine as the story moves from lascivious sex clubs to the unraveling of a mystery to a magical jinni throw-down which will leave you panting for more. Jinn and Juice is Urban Fantasy at its smartest, naughtiest, funniest best." --Juliet Blackwell

Praise For Jinn and Juice

"Peeler is perfect. Jinn and Juice is her best urban fantasy yet with vibrant characters that leap off the page fully formed from the first line. Fast-paced, rowdy, smart, irresistible, and tender, there's just no one who hits the urban fantasy marks as well as Peeler. Buy this book! Read it! Love it!"—Kat Richardson on Jinn and Juice

"Peeler has done it again! Jinn and Juice is a delightful read filled with action, humor, heart, and a heroine to cheer for. And it doesn't hurt that there are also sirens, trolls, bugbears, and plenty of Pittsburgh steel."—Kevin Hearne, author of Hounded, on Jinn and Juice

"Snarky, sexy! Beautifully descriptive and painstakingly plotted. Lyla is a smart, sly and just this side of scary. Peeler's world-building is clever and complete with every possible fairy folk character! The other-worldly seems familiar and glamorous all at the same time. And I learned how to curse in a few new languages, so it was educational!"—Molly Harper on Jinn and Juice

"Nicole Peeler is a master at weaving humor and romance together to create addictive stories and characters!"—Richelle Mead on Jinn and Juice

"Rising star Peeler returns with a new Pittsburgh-set urban fantasy series featuring a cursed jinni... The supremely gifted Peeler adeptly builds her alternate Pittsburgh by making it a funky and magically polluted refuge for non-pureblood supernaturals. Fabulous characterization, witty dialogue and a clever plot make for a magically mixed-up tale that is both fun and thrilling!"—RT Book Reviews on Jinn and Juice
