What I liked
W-to the-O-to the-W. This book has really got it all. Fantasy, magic, hot-hot-hot hero (who, by the way, I would like to clone, thank you), hot love scenes, incredible sexual tension. The two main characters (well, the protagonists) were incredible characters, and I felt immediately connected to the heroine, who is trapped in a loveless marriage by a man who sees her as practically synonymous with one of his slaves. But the plot is so inventive, and flows so well. This was definitely a five-star read. I think that anyone who likes erotic romance (whether you typically read paranormal or not) will really like this book. Plus, it's a full-length novel, which is really nice, because you get to spend a long time with these characters. The hero was ultra-yummy, the heroine was deep and interesting, the plot was fantastic, the writing was evocative and engaging... this is definitely a book I'm gonna read again! Excellent read. I highly recommend it. (P.S. Did I mention how much I want to be this chick who gets to be with Lysander the whole time? Um... yum.)
