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
Just so you understand my point of view on this one, when I first read Fantasy Lover, I was looking for an exciting paranormal romance that would cure my addiction to Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood and nothing would really do. So I went to the library and tried this one out.
It was a wonderful surprise and I read it through a single day.
We have Julian of Macedonia, a man that was never loved as a child, a great warrior of it's time, cursed into a book with the sole purpose of being a sex slave.
And then we meet Grace Alexander, a sex therapist, a woman that never knew how it was to be loved by a man, hurting from a big deception from the past.
How would it be to have a birthday gift that would change your hole life and the conception of reality has you know it ?
To meet a man that could make you feel what you been missing in your life ... Have the chance to be truly fulfilled and happy with someone, especially with a man like Julian.
All this considerations come to mind when reading this book.
It has a little of everything and is actually a good start to the dark hunter series.
It didn't kill my love for the Black Dagger Brotherhood, I have to say that they are my perfect little world and my addiction, but this series is really a breath of fresh air.
