The Blurb: A Midsummer's Nightmare? Robin Goodfellow. Puck. Summer Court prankster, King Oberon's right hand, bane of many a faery queen's existence—and secret friend to Prince Ash of the Winter Court. Until one girl's death came between them, and another girl stole both their hearts. Now Ash has granted one favor too many and someone's come to collect, forcing the prince to a place he cannot go without Puck's help—into the heart of the Summer Court. And Puck faces the ultimate choice—betray Ash and possibly win the girl they both love, or help his former friend turned bitter enemy pull off a deception that no true faery prankster could possibly resist. 
The Review: As soon as this was released I headed straight to Harlequin and downloaded it. To say the least I more than a little excited to start and it didn't let me down. 
Summer's Crossing is a novella told from Puck's point of view. After the events in The Iron Queen, Puck and Ash start their journey but they are soon interrupted by Leanansidhe who has come to collect her debt from Ash. Puck & Ash soon find themselves in the heart of the Summer's Court, while Puck soon finds himself facing a ultimate choice, one were he would have to betray Ash in order to have a shot at winning Meghan's heart or betray his Summer Queen Titania. 
I loved it! It so easy to get back into this series after a few months away and it was so great to be back with Ash & Puck. Puck is one great character to read about and being inside his head was even better. He's so funny, witty, sarcastic and you can't help love him more. I loved being able to find out how he really felt about Ash and Meghan, although I am Team Ash, I do feel sorry for Puck, I almost want his to find someone to be happy with. 
Overall, I think this was a great addition to the series. Its just enough to keep you going until October when The Iron Knight is released and if anyone is like me, I will be making sure I have that book on the release date. I CAN NOT wait to see what will happen next.
