Dear Reader,

Being trapped in a bedroom with a woman is a grand thing. Being trapped in hundreds of bedrooms over two thousand years isn't. And being cursed into a book as a love-slave for eternity can ruin even a Spartan warrior's day.

As a love-slave, I know everything about women. How to touch them, how to savor them, and most of all, how to pleasure them. But when I was summoned to fulfill Grace Alexander's sexual fantasies, I found the first woman in history who saw me as a man with a tormented past. She alone bothered to take me out of the bedroom and onto the world. She taught me to love again.

But I was not born to love. I was cursed to walk eternity alone. As a general, I had long ago accepted my sentence. Yet now I have found Grace--the one thing my wounded heart cannot survive without. Sure, love can heal all wounds, but can it break a two-thousand-year-old curse?

Julian of Macedon

Wow! Talk about SPICY! I figured there be some sort of spice factor to a book titled FANTASY LOVER, but man was I surprised! This book is definitely not for those that can't stand a graphic read. That being said, the love story between the covers of Kenyon's first in the Dark Hunter series is touchingly sweet.

Julian is the son of a goddess and destined to live a life never quite fitting in anywhere. After a great tragedy takes place, Julian is forever bound in a book. His only freedom comes when a woman finds him and calls him forth at midnight on a full moon. He gets to step foot on Earth once again, but only until the next moon. Luckily for the woman, he is blessed with a touch no female can ignore and no male can compete with. But is being an immortal love slave all that its hyped up to be?

Grace is a sex therapist who hasn't "practiced" her craft in years. She was hurt by the last man to touch her and is unwilling to lose herself to anyone again. At the whim of her eccentric friend she calls Julian forth from his book and discovers that she's stuck with him for the next month. What's an unwilling partner and a sex slave to do?

Kenyon wrote a winner here, in my opinion. Yes the graphic parts were graphic, but if you don't mind that too much then you have one heck of an adventure. Kenyon does a fantastic job of pulling us as the readers along through a complex web of tangled emotions. The tension surrounding Grace and Julian is quite palpable. There were many moments when I literally clutched my throat, begging for things to be made better, wishing that I could stick my head into the story and tell Julian and Grace to get over their issues and realize their love already! The tension would slowly build, right the breaking point and then ebb ever so slightly, pulling us forward into the story.

If you like Paranormal Romance, you will love FANTASY LOVER. The romantic element in this story is at times sweet and at times mind blowingly passionate.

At first I was skeptical about reading another paranormal romance series but once I started reading I couldn't put the book down and found myself finishing it within a day! I'm now hooked on the Dark-Hunter series and can't wait to read more. Fantasy Lover is a must read.

Fantasy Lover is the first book in the must-read Dark-Hunter series. It is very well written. It can't be easy, being a slave (even if it is a love-slave). You feel the character's emotions, and wish to help him out. Once read, you will immediately start looking for the next book in the series. Sherrilyn Kenyon is an excellent author. Highly recommended.
