REVIEW

"FANTASY LOVER made magic, love and hot sex with this story!"

As a form of punishment from the Gods, Julian of Macedon has been trapped in a book since 149 B.C. as a love-slave to be used over and over again. Grace, a sex therapist, was nothing short of celibate. Sure, she had sexual fantasies just like any other living and breathing woman but she had no desire to act on them. After doing a chant with the book that her best friend, Selena, had given her for her twenty- ninth birthday, Julian appeared to her for her pleasure. It astounded him that Grace didn't want to use him. Through love, caring, kindness, and every other good human emotion, Grace opened the world back up for Julian. Julian, with his God-like body, his soul, and his strength, pulled Grace back to reality and out of her precious dreams. Together, they fought Gods, Goddesses, and lunatic stalkers to be together.

I had waited a very long time for this book and the day I got it, I read it with great anticipation and I wasn't the least bit disappointed. FANTASY LOVER was spectacular in all its glory. Sherrilyn Kenyon has really done it this time. She made magic, love and hot sex with this one! I anticipate more of these tales. Way to go Sherrilyn; keep it up! FANTASY LOVER definitely made my small, picky "keeper shelf".

SUMMARY

He was everything she'd ever dreamed of...

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 into the world. She taught me to love again.

But I was not born to know 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
