Dans le chapitre 7, Anaïs lit "Le Baiser des Ombres".

Quote :
Merry Gentry est détective privée à Los Angeles. Une détective un peu particulière. L'agence qui l'emploie est spécialisée dans les dossiers étranges, elle a pour slogan "à affaires surnaturelles, solutions magiques". Merry est aussi la princesse elfe disparue trois ans plus tôt que recherchent encore tous les paparazzi de la planète. Elle ne veut surtout pas qu'on la retrouve, car si elle retombait aux mains de sa tante, la Reine de l'air et des ténèbres, sa punition serait longue et horrible. Tout va pourtant bien pour elle : réussite professionnelle, vie discrète, amant sans une goutte de sang humain... mais l'enquête qui se présente sent mauvais. Un membre de la cour procure à des humains un produit magique interdit capable de déchaîner une folie sexuelle. Des femmes meurent de tortures et d'extase. Même si à la cour des fées, le sexe et la douleur vont de pair, les accords passés avec les humains et la Reine n'autorisent pas ce genre de contacts entre les simples mortels et les êtres doués de pouvoirs magiques. Plongée au cœur même de l'enquête, Merry est désormais l'objet d'une traque impitoyable. Quelqu'un veut sa mort et ses pouvoirs surnaturels ne suffiront pas à la protéger...

In the Chapter 7, Anaïs is reading "Kiss of Shadows".

Laurell K. Hamilton revitalized vampires, werewolves, and zombies in the popular Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter books. In this new series, she updates faeries. A Kiss of Shadows introduces Merry Gentry, a.k.a. Meredith NicEssus, a faerie princess of the Unseelie Court, where politics is a blood sport. Merry, who's part sidhe (elvish), part brownie, and part human, never really fit in. She's short, not skilled in offensive magic, and mortal because of her human blood. These are real liabilities when your family, especially aunt Andais, Queen of Air and Darkness, is out to kill you. Merry has been in hiding for three years, living in Los Angeles and working for the Grey Detective Agency, which specializes in "supernatural problems, magical solutions." A new case sets her against a man who uses forbidden magic to seduce fey women and drain their power. A plan to trap him goes awry and Merry's cover is blown. Now Andais knows where she is. But things have changed in Andais's court, and Merry is changing too.

Despite the selkies, brownies, goblins, and ogres in this book, it's not for children. The fey are "creatures of the senses"--and in the Unseelie court, sex and pain go together. Merry is sexually adventurous and surrounded by gorgeous, powerful males, most of whom want her badly. She's politically savvy and no coward, though she's not the warrior Anita is. Hamilton fans and readers of adult fairy tales like Anne Bishop's Black Jewels trilogy will want to give Merry a look

Erotica is fantasy, but it rarely gets as fantastic as this. After nine novels featuring Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter (Obsidian Butterfly, etc.), Hamilton launches a sizzling new series that blends supernatural fantasy with detective adventure and hot sex. Here, the world is populated with various magical faerie races along with humans. The most supreme of the fey are the immortal sidhe, so beautiful and powerful they were once worshiped as gods. The fey are not only lusty but incredibly accomplished lovers; those of the royal sidhe bloodline are literally addictively sexy. Full-blooded fey are, for the most part, intolerant of cities, metal and technology. They seldom live for long among humans. Mixed-blood Princess Meredith NicEssus, however, has fled the faerie world to pass for three years as Merry Gentry, a human with some fey blood who works in Los Angeles with a detective agency that specializes in supernatural problems and magical solutions. Suddenly outed as the missing princess and fearing that her aunt, the Queen of Air and Darkness, will kill her, she makes a desperate run aided by her detective pals. The queen does want her, but not in the way Merry expects. Ultimately, Meredith must fulfill the queen's designs for the future of her court, even if it means having to bed the most beautiful studs in the universe. Through constant danger and adventure, Meredith finds herself in a variety of sexual encounters that make it easy to see why her ancestors were so worthy of worship. As wild as the novel's premise is, memorable characters and wicked wit make it all delicious, ribald fun. 8-city author tour.

Quote :
Mon nom est Blake, Anita Blake. Les vampires, eux, m'appellent "l'Exécutrice" et par égard pour les oreilles les plus chastes, je ne vous dirai pas comment, moi, je les appelle. Ma spécialité, au départ, c'était plutôt les zombies. Je relève les morts à la nuit tombée pour une petite PME. Ce n'est pas toujours très exaltant et mon patron m'exploite honteusement, mais quand on a un vrai don, ce serait idiot de ne pas s'en servir. Tuer des vampires, c'est autre chose, une vieille passion liée à des souvenirs d'enfance. Depuis qu'ils sont officiellement reconnus et ont pignon sur rue, ils se croient tout permis. Certes, il yen a de charmants, voire très sexy, mais il y en a aussi qui abusent. Ceux-là je les élimine. Rien de tel pour garder la forme : ça vous fouette le sang !

Dans le chapitre 4, il est mentionné que Liam et Anaïs lisaient les romans de Laurel K. Hamilton, sous entendu cette série sur une chasseuse de vampire qui porte le même nom que la maman d'Anaïs.

Anita Blake may be small and young, but vampires call her the Executioner. Anita is a necromancer and vampire hunter in a time when vampires are protected by law--as long as they don't get too nasty. Now someone's killing innocent vampires and Anita agrees--with a bit of vampiric arm-twisting--to help figure out who and why.
Trust is a luxury Anita can't afford when her allies aren't human. The city's most powerful vampire, Nikolaos, is 1,000 years old and looks like a 10-year-old girl. The second most powerful vampire, Jean-Claude, is interested in more than just Anita's professional talents, but the feisty necromancer isn't playing along--yet. This popular series has a wild energy and humor, and some very appealing characters--both dead and alive. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

In the chapter 4, it's mentionned that Liam and Anais are reading books of Laurel K. Hamilton and it refers to this serie about a vapire slayer who's got the name of Anaïs' mum ^^
