|"I would date if I could ever find a man worth
shaving my legs for."
A Spartan general in ancient Greece, Julian of Macedon
had a curse placed upon him by the gods, to become a love-slave and spend eternity
pleasing women while never being pleased, his essence magically held in a book that is
passed down from woman to woman. The book finds its way to a secondhand bookshop.
Grace is a sex therapist who hasnt dated for 4 years. A friend gives her the book
for a birthday present, so she can summon a love-slave and enjoy herself She ends up
wanting to break the curse so Julian can be free and has to deal with the Greek gods in
order to achieve her goal.
This story is the prequel before the Dark Hunter series, this is more a stand-alone
romance, but Julian and Grace are definite fixtures in the series. A slightly raunchy
book, you might want to read it first before passing it on to teens, but it also has
moments of humour, such as when the Greek god Eros turns out to be a modern day xxxxxxx.
No, read it to find out. Its a light-hearted fun read.

Review: Julian Macedon has spent far too many years hundreds, thousands even
confined to life as a sex slave and doomed to spend his time stuck within the pages
of an ancient book. The only time Julian leaves the pages is when hes called forth
to serve women in a purely physical sense. Needless to say, romance and love are
overrated. Grace Alexander is a celibate sex therapist, a lifestyle decision made after
the end of a rather awful relationship. Shes not into love, either. Her life is as
far removed from Julians as it could possibly get, until Graces rather unusual
friend, Selena, gives her Julians book as a birthday present. Imagine Graces
surprise when the spell she assumes is a joke, really does work. Whats a girl to do
when she has a real-life Greek demi-god at her beck and call determined to make her fall
in love with him?
A fun-filled and slightly steamy - and addictive read. Fantasy Lover
is the first book in Kenyons long running Dark-Hunter series. Im an ardent fan
of Kenyons Dark-Hunter books, so much so that I visited New Orleans in 2009 for
three reasons: the music; Mardi Gras; Kenyons books and it was everything I had
hoped it would be and more. If you like your paranormal romance with sizzle, you will not
