about

The last in a fabled line of otherworldly aristocracy, the Lords of Satyr are born to wealth, power, and a talent for sensual delight that mere mortals only dream of. Commanded to marry, these passionate men will travel to Rome, Venice, and Paris--and along the way will explore desires both shamelessly wicked and blissfully divine. . .

He Had Sworn To Take A Proper Wife. He Hadn't Bargained On Meeting His Match. . .

Nicholas looks very much like what he is--the handsome, successful heir to a vineyard in Tuscany. But Nicholas is much more, for he is one of the last in an ancient line of satyr men. And the dying king of ElseWorld wants him not only to marry, but to wed one of the king's own daughters--a half-human, half-faerie woman unaware of her heritage. Nicholas won't shirk his duty to produce heirs to guard his race's legacies, but he never plans to make his bride his only lover. A satyr's sexual hunger and sensual skills are legendary. One woman will never satisfy him.

Or so Nicholas believes until he meets Jane. As spirited as she is fey, as beautiful as she is innocent, she is nevertheless determined to make her new husband hers alone--and she's eager for him to teach her every deliciously carnal secret he knows. . .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not horrible, not great. Nicholas was a typical erotic read. Very steamy. However, I felt that it lacked a few things--like romance and love. As good as the erotic part was, there was very little romance. Since this book is marketed as an erotic romance, I was hoping there would be some love other than in the carnal way. Jane is half fey, but she has no idea that her dad is really a Faery King and ruler of the ElseWorld. She has some physical abnormalities that she is ashamed of, and has tried her hardest to hide. She also has the ability to heal plants and flower by touch alone. She loves that part of herself, but she must keep it a secret. Nick is also not fully human. He is half Satyr. He and his brothers are very successful vine yard owners and once a month something... interesting happens to them. It is called The Calling. SPOILER: The Calling happens on every full moon, the brothers each develop an extra penis. It's located a few inches above the first one and is just slightly smaller. In order for the second penis to go away, the men must have anal sex with it. Since the sight of that extra penis would freak out a human woman, the guys have sex with Shimmerings. Female bodies that that are conjured up by thought. Also, a woman can only get pregnant by a Satyr man during The Calling, and only if he wills it to happen. Although there are no inconsistencies, I am left with unanswered questions. There is one ritual that takes place during The Calling, that made absolutely no sense to me. The reason for it went way over my head and the only reason Jane agreed to it is because she was guilt tripped into it. That entire scene just proved to me that there is a whole lot of lust, but no love coming from Nicholas to Jane.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from satyr brothers own a vineyard 3 satyr brothers who're part human own a vineyard in Tuscany on which there's an entrance to an alternate world. Nicholas is the oldest. The brothers need heirs and are called upon to find and marry some unusal brides. This is erotic and not just spicy. Story makes sense with the erotic scenes. It's not forced. Writing was unusually good (especially for erotic). Held my attention. It's historical in early 1800s Italy. This is book #1.
