A short story set three years after the events of AS YOU WISH!
Lawrence has spent the last three years dealing with the presence of the jinn– a consequence of his best friend falling in love with one back in high school. Worried he’ll reveal their presence to the world, the jinn send a rotating set of guards to watch him. He’s just learning to ignore their constant presence when a jinn named Juliet gets herself assigned to his post. Juliet is a determined to learn about love, a strange concept to most jinn, and Lawrence is going to help her– like it or not.
Things about Love is also available as part of Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong’s anthology Enthralled: Paranormal Diversions. In addition to Pearce’s short, there are stories from 15 other authors, including Carrie Ryan, Ally Condie, and Rachel Caine.
