Here is a summary of her latest book Wicked Lovely.

Aislinn has always been able to see the faeries that walk invisible among humans, but she keeps her ability secret because they are dangerous. Unfortunately, the Summer King targets her to be his next queen, forcing Aislinn to take action. Celtic folklore gets a modern twist in this eerie story told from three rotating points of view.
