According to National Day Calendar, August is Romance Awareness month! This gave me a good excuse to pick up a few sexy books from the library shelves.
Finally, a book written by Sherrilyn Kenyon! As a longtime romance reader, I’ve never had the chance to pick up any of her books until now. Fantasy Lover is an interesting story about Grace, a sex therapist, who falls in love with Julian, a cursed Spartan general. Grace accidentally summons Julian from a book and learns the ancient Greek gods condemned him to be a love slave. Any summoner uses Julian for their own pleasures until he is sent back into the book within a month. Grace and Julian form a strong romantic bond (besides the obvious sexual tension). Now, they have to find a way to destroy the curse before their month together runs out.
I’ve been following Larissa Ione’s works in the 1001 Dark Nights series, a collection of steamy stories written by various writers. I love Ione’s imaginative world of angels, demons, and everything in between! I already read her story about Hades and Azagoth, the grim reaper. This time, it’s all about Azagoth’s fallen angel assistant: Z (formally known as Zhubaal). Z strongly believes his past love’s reincarnation is a demon soul collector named Vex. Only Vex doesn’t believe Z so he tries hard to help her recollect her past life as his lover.
Gena Showalter and I go way back. I stared reading her books in the early 2000s with The Stone Prince and The Nymph King. Now, I’m back into Showalter’s realm with The Vampire’s Bride, a love story between a vampire king and an Amazon trapped on an island together. Can’t wait to read how this story turns out!
