The Lords of Satyr #1
July 31st 2007
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…
Thanks for joining me in my new endeavor. I can't want to see which book I'll be reviewing next. How I picked this one was by closing my eyes and fanning through the pages of my notebook. When I stopped I pointed with my finger and where it landed is what I'm reviewing.
It landed on Nichols by Elizabeth Amber. I read this in October of 2007. In fact I have the date written down and it's 10/18/07. A long time ago. I had to review the blurb to remember it.
What I do remember is that I saw the cover at RT 2007 and knew I wanted it. Come on...sexy!
Nichols is a very weird book. I'm not sure how else to say it. I knew it would be sexy because of the line it's written under but...I think the author tried to go for some shock value on this one. You really need to read it for yourself to truly understand what I'm getting at. I don't want to ruin it for you in you decided to.
If you don't have a open mind about sex this story isn't for you.
The story is historical with a mix of fantasy. That part I really enjoyed. I also think you'll like both Nichols and Jane. Both are enjoyable characters. I also liked Nichols brothers.
I think this is well worth the read but I'm not sure I'd ever read anything else by this author. The story just didn't grab me enough. I still have the second and third books on my shelves so you never know.
The author hasn't written anything since April of 2012. That's also around the time that she stopped posting on social media too. If you find a cheap copy of Nichols then give it a try. I just wouldn't spend big bucks on it.
If you've read Nichols or any other book by Elizabeth Amber I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
