"Intriguing, emotional, and erotic"
The continuation of the Lords of Satyr series begins years
after and in a different environment of all of the others
stories. Dane has just returned from ElseWorld to join his
brothers in nineteenth century Rome. Having been given the
task from the ElseWorld Council of finding a wife and
producing children, he searches out Eva, a matchmaker. He
did not realize that he would be more interested in the
matchmaker than the women she was matching him with.
Eva had a secret: she is the only living woman satyr.
Fortunately, she disguises herself as simply fey to run her
matchmaking services. When the satyr Dane arrives in her
house, she immediately wants him for herself. She knows
that Dane could satisfy her needs. But, she continues to
play matchmaker and attempts to damper her desires for the
While Dane and Eva fight their attraction, others are vying
for Dane and Eva's attention and resorting to blackmail.
Can the two of them come to agreement concerning their
attraction? Can they thwart the plans of the bad guys?
I found it difficult to write a summary of this book because
there is so much happening in this book! At first, I found
the story slow, but this seemingly slow setup is necessary
for the rest of the book to fly by with erotic scenes,
drama, and intrigue.
Eva and Dane are incredibly hot! Separately, both
characters have interesting pasts that directly influence
their actions. I enjoyed how the story slowly peeled away
aspects of Dane and Eva and how that fit into the complex
storyline of this book. I desperately wanted to know how
Dane and Eva ended up together at the conclusion of their
emotional, twist-turning tale.
I really enjoyed Dane. The intrigue of the story blended
perfectly with the erotic scenes, leaving me supremely happy
with the complexity and intensity of this book. Although
Dane is part of the Lords of Satyr series, the book will be
easy to understand for those new to the series, but fans are
guaranteed to love this new installment. The series has
definitely been expanded and I look forward to seeing how
the world progresses. Give me more!
