1 . Good Read
Posted October 15, 2010 by Marie , LucedaleI ended up reading books 2 and 3 of this series before I realized it was a series. So then I had to backtrack and read book 1. It was a great story to start the series. It lays down a great foundation for a series and introduces many of the characters that you will meet in later books. With over a dozen books in this series I am looking for a nice long winter of good reading!! Enjoy!
2 . GREAT.
Posted August 22, 2010 by JLC , USAI read tons of romance novels and I loved this. I had a hard time putting it down, because I was anxious to see what was going to happen next. The ending was a little corny, but not sure how I would done it any different
3 . Good read, but kind of corny
Posted February 23, 2009 by Daydreamer28 , Woodland Hills, CAI enjoyed reading this story, but I have to admit the "witty banter" is seriously lacking. Using such exclamations such as "Holy Guacamole!" Or "Ooo baby, you're one hot tamale". It's supposed to be cute, but turns out to be laughable at best.
With all that said, however, it's good story and not a terrible way to spend your time.
4 . Great Read!
Posted February 08, 2009 by Erica , DCThis was a great read! The characters were believable and well developed, the dialogue was witty, the splash of history was extremely interesting, and the the sexual tension was spectacular! I can't wait to read the next in the series. eBook should really make this a bundle!
5 . Almost Too Much
Posted March 28, 2008 by Jade , Wyoming USAThis book is one of the most erotic I've ever read. It was almost too much sex and there were even scenes I wanted to book mark and show my husband to see if he'd be willing to give it a whirl. Don't get me wrong the book is wonderful. Very steamy and will definitely set your own mind to fantasizing. There is so much sex and tension over sex that you feel really bad for Julian and how stuck he is and you realize how irritating it must be for him to not be able to walk around without getting mobbed by women or them really only wanting you for your body. To be stuck without having any friends because any male would instantly see you as a threat and not listen to you when you truthfully tell them that you are interested in their mates. And to have such an awful relationship with your mother as well. I can empathize with Julian and his relationship with his mother and how she doesn't really seem to care. She is so hung up on wanting him to ask for her help that she doesn't seem to get it through her head that she is his mother. He shouldn't have to beg her to help him. This book was very very good and I have to say that even if this was the first book of hers that I had picked up I would go out and get the rest just based off this one novel.

Excerpt from Fantasy Lover (Prequel) (Dark-Hunter Series: #17) by Sherrilyn Kenyon
"Honey, you need to get laid."
Grace Alexander flinched at Selena's overly loud voice in the small New Orleans cafe where they sat, finishing up their lunch of red beans and rice. Unfortunately for her, Selena's voice possessed a lovely octave that could carry plainly through a hurricane.
And it was followed by a sudden hush in the crowded room.
Glancing at the nearby tables, Grace noted the men had stopped talking, and turned to stare at them with a lot more interest than she cared for.
Ah jeez! Will Selena ever learn to keep her voice down?
Worse, what will she do next, strip naked, and dance on the tabletops?
For the millionth time since they had first met, Grace wished Selena could get embarrassed. But her flamboyant, often extravagant pal didn't know the meaning of the word.
Grace covered her face with her hands and did her best to ignore the curious onlookers. An urge to slink beneath the table, followed by an even greater urge to kick her companion, consumed her.
"Why don't you speak a little louder, Lanie?" she whispered. "I don't think the guys in Canada were able to hear you."
"Oh, I don't know," the gorgeous brown-haired waiter said as he stopped by their table. "They're probably headed south even as we speak."
Heat stole up Grace's cheeks as the obviously college-aged waiter gave her a devilish grin. "Is there anything else I can get you ladies?" he asked, then looked pointedly at Grace. "Or more precisely, is there anything I can do for you, ma'am?"
How about a bag for my head, or a stick to beat Lanie with?
"I think we have it," Grace said, her cheeks scalding. She was definitely going to kill Selena for this. "We just need our bill."
"All right, then," he said, pulling their ticket off and scribbling across the top of the paper. He set it down in front of Grace. "Just give me a call if I can be of any further service."
It was only after he left that Grace saw his name and phone number on the top of the bill.
Selena took one look at it and laughed out loud.
