It might sound like a man’s favourite fantasy – to live forever, destined to be the lover of thousands of women. But for Julian of Macedon, it’s a nightmare. Once he was a proud Spartan general; now he’s a love-slave, his essence magically held captive in a book, cursed to spend all eternity pleasing women. Then, one day, Grace Alexander summons Julian to fulfill her passionate dreams – and sees beyond the fantasy to the man himself.
Long years as a sex therapist, listening to other people’s bedroom problems, have taken a lot of the fun out of the physical side of love for Grace. But with or without sex, the rules of the enchantment cannot be changed – Julian is hers for the next month. And, as their time together slips by, Julian and Grace find more to share than sympathy and conversation and they begin to wonder if love might be within their grasp. That leaves only one question. Is love enough to break a 2,000 year old curse? _______________________________________________________________________________
“So, what’s your style preference?”
“For what I have in mind, nudity works best.”
Fantasy Lover is an amazing prequel to the Dark-Hunter series, based on Greek Mythology, the love story of Julian and Grace.
Julian, who was the most feared Macedonian general of his time, was betrayed and cursed to be a love slave for all time. Grace is the only one who is able to break this curse.
Grace is always rational, maybe too rational: she tries to find sense even in lust.
She couldn’t very well let him join her in bed like that.
Sure you could.
No I can’t.
Hush, self, let me think.
But eventually her steadiness saves Julian. She is honest, perceptive, and always gives regards to Julian’s feelings. She has a strong empathy for him, she understands him, sees him as himself, not only his perfect appearance.
She was the first woman to see him. Not his looks, not his body, not his warrior’s prowess. She saw inside his soul.
I love Julian, I feel so sorry for his sufferings both in his human life and in the immortal one. Despite his incredibly cruel childhood, and past, Julian managed to remain a gentle, caring man.
Sherrilyn Kenyon has a special talent to write heart-wrenching lines. She doesn’t simply give a description of emotions, but she is also able to make you feel them. Though there is no Dark-Hunter in this novel, Julian will appear in the following books, which is more than welcomed. Fantasy Lover is a really great start to the Dark-Hunter series.
