A synopsis for the book 'A Caress of Twilight', book 2 in Laurell K Hamilton's Merry Gentry series.
She is Princess Meredith and she is heir to a throne -- if she can stay alive long enough to claim it. Unlike most of her kind, Merry is part human and all too mortal, as her cousin and arch rival knows only too well. For a deadly game is being played in the Faerie court and whoever produces an heir first wears the crown. But as she auditions her royal guard for the role of future king and father of her child, Merry is somewhat distracted from her career as a private investigator...
From the inside cover of the US hardback:

This is the publisher's blurb that is written on the back of the book:
"These days, Anita Blake is less interested in vampire politics than in an ancient, ordinary dread she shares with women down the ages: she may be pregnant. And, if she is, whether the father is a vampire, a werewolf, or someone else entirely, she knows perfectly well that being a Federal Marshal known for raising the dead and being a vampire executioner, is no way to bring up a baby."
"Anita Blake should be concentrating on a dangerous situation: the ardeur, the sexual power that flows between...
