Maybe I just wasn't in the right frame of mind when I read this book, but it was a little too silly for me. Tristan was sure sexy, though, and I love Showalter's use of humor.

I am really loving this author. Have only read a couple of her books but am going to work on getting them all. This is Tristan & Julia's story. He is a pleasure slave because a sorcoress couldn't make him love her. When Julia opens the box she gets quite a surprise and she has Tristan teach her how to get a man. Tristan wants to be that man but it takes him some convincing. He does succeed and together they learn about love. Great, fun book. Quick read.

Moderately entertaining, but Sherrilyn Kenyon did it better.

I loved this book! The plot is funny and sexy. It was very entertaining and I couldn't help my amusement at the situations the hero and heroine find themselves in. A comedy of errors meets romantica. All ingredients for a most satisfying read.

Second book I've read by this author - the first one was fantastic - this is an easy read and just didn't really hold my interest ... a little too old school romance for me.

This was a cute and funny story. Tristan is so sexy, and made a very good Pleasure Slave. This is the second book I have read by this author and plan to look up some more.

Synopsis from back cover: When Santa Fe antique dealer Julie Anderson was curiously drawn to purchase a battered jewelry box, she never expected it to contain her own personal love slave. Especially not tall, dark and sinfully handsome Tristan-a man hard to resist, and determined to fulfill her every desire.

Though Tristan was a rogue of the battlefield and the boudoir, making love with Julia was like nothing he'd ever known. Yet revealing his true heart would break the centuries-old spell and separate them forever. And Tristan would do anything to go on loving Julia....even remain a slave through all eternity...

Loved it! This is the first book I've read by Gena Showalter, and it most definitely won't be the last.

Julie Anderson wasn't looking for a pleasure slave, but she got one in the broad, abs of steel, Tristan when she purchased the battered jewelry box that was Tristan's prison. Julie couldn't help falling for the guy-- after all, he had centuries of practice in the bedroom and was really, really good at it (and handsome). Before long, Julie is madly in love and so is Tristan, because Julie refuses to use him, abuse him or make him perform like a circus dog--what man wouldn't fall in love with a woman like that? Ah, but true love never did run smooth. According to his curse, if Tristan tells Julie he loves her, he loses her, banished to the other side of the universe. And if he doesn't tell her? Tristan will probably lose Julie anyhow. Luckily, this is romance world.

I like this author, generally and found this book to be good.

Gena Showalter is one of my favorite authors, and this book did not disappoint! Quite different from her darker books. These characters are easy to love and the story is sweet, with some spice for flavor.

I was disapointed in this book. Love Gena Showalter! But this was my least favorite of all her books. A good read, but it drags in many places and lacks the spark that most of her books have. Still that being said, still a good book.
