Summary by Barnes and Noble
Dear Reader,
Being trapped in a bedroom with a woman is a grand thing. Being trapped in hundreds of bedrooms over two thousand years isn't. And being cursed into a book as a love-slave for eternity can ruin even a Spartan warrior's day.
As a love-slave, I know everything about women. How to touch them, how to savor them, and most of all, how to pleasure them. But when I was summoned to fulfill Grace Alexander's sexual fantasies, I found the first woman in history who saw me as a man with a tormented past. She alone bothered to take me out of the bedroom and onto the world. She taught me to love again.
But I was not born to love. I was cursed to walk eternity alone. As a general, I had long ago accepted my sentence. Yet now I have found Grace--the one thing my wounded heart cannot survive without. Sure, love can heal all wounds, but can it break a two-thousand-year-old curse?
Julian of Macedon

I really enjoyed this great adult romance by Sherrilyn Kenyon.  I had heard a lot about her books and how good they were and I honestly wasn't disappointed.   I loved that Grace treated Julian like a person and not the sex slave that he had been cursed to become.  I loved Grace's best friend Selena, she was so much fun.  Julian was HOT and the romance was steamy, I could have used a few more of those steamy scenes actually. The twists with the gods was fun and had this romance straying a little bit into the paranormal genre.  Whether you normally enjoy paranormal romance or not this book is definitely worth reading.  Enjoy!


  1. Oh snap! Get ready for a serious romp with this series! And, wait until you get to Ash's book! You have a long way to go, but the wait is worth it. Enjoy the Hunters!

  2. I'm looking forward to reading them. Shari

  3. This was the book that got me hooked on the D-H series. I loved the way the author made vampires the result of a Greek god's curse.

  4. Sounds like I need to move the next book up higher on my TBR list:)

  5. Ooh, I've also read one or two of her books and have enjoyed it very much. I love her writing and will definitely check this one out! Glad you enjoyed it :)

  6. Glad you enjoyed this book! The series just gets better and better!


Thanks for stopping by. I love hearing what you think!
