Gets off to a slow start but picks up in the middle. This is an explicit romance tale that at times describes some unconventional sex practices. Skip the story if you don't enjoy reading such things, but I didn't mind the level of detail. However, this is not very romantic or passionate. The hero isn't very likable. He cheats on the heroine. I didn't read the rest of the books in the series because this book turned me off from the Lords of the Satyr series.

Erotic historical romance with paranormal elements (not vampire). Good writing and historical detail. The villain is female, which is a nice change, and she and her friends are quite creepy. Very hot book and better than most in the genre. Mostly M/F (hero and heroine), but there is some menage (heroine and the 3 bros/and one other scene) and F/F (the villainess) as well. On my keeper shelf.

Well written erotica...and I was beginning to think the two were mutually exclusive! For those who enjoy this genre, this is a MUST READ. It is a well written story; the author is obviously a very talented writer (I read that Elizabeth Amber is a pseudonym for a best-selling author). The sex is essential to the story arc (as is the rule with this genre), and the characters are well developed. The details and history provide by the author are fabulous, Ms. Amber did her homework. In a story with sex interwoven into the plot, Ms. Amber still managed to provide the physical aspects refreshing twists. A very enjoyable read.

First book in the unusual Lords of Satyr erotic romance series about the oldest brother who goes on a bride-hunt from Tuscany to Rome. One of the best written erotic romances I've read. Historic, early part of the 1800s. An unusual interesting premise about a blight that attacks the vineyards of Italy and these Satyr guys help fight it. Mostly about the main hero/heroine but includes some menage and f/f sex as well.

he last in fabled line of otherwordly 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 kings'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...

************

This was definitely a good book. Lots of explicit sex. And I mean lots. As a debut (I think this was her first novel), Elizabeth Amber did an EXCELLENT job!

Lots of description, extremely likable characters, and somewhat evil (but not quite as bad as they could've been) villains.

Sorry to say I hated this book. Put it down about half way through. I am not a fan of historicals so this may be why I disliked it so much.

I had my doubts about the sexiness of a satyr, the mythological half man half goat or horse. What a pleasant surprise. Although the book starts off describing three satyr brothers in the woods who eventually sprout animal-hairy legs and a second penis, the story was extremely sensual, sexy, and romantic. Set in early 1800's even the historical aspect is well told. The characters were engaging and the story, while certainly rooted entirely in fantasy, was convincing with a romance that developed at an even pace and built to a real love story by the end. In a book with a hero with two penises, it was remarkably absorbing and memorable. And the sexiness factor was blistering hot.

Recommend!

Very hot book. Naughty to the nth degree. The writing style is nice and easy to read, and the plot is interesting. I'm looking forward to the rest of the books in the series. These books are not for everyone, the intimate scenes are quite shocking.
