This week’s neglected book

Fantasy Lover by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Publication Date: February 18, 2002
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press

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?

Why did I add Fantasy Lover to my bookshelf?
I decided to feature this book today because I was recently reading some of the reports of the things going on in this author’s personal life and it hit me that although I own a ton of her books, I haven’t read any of them.  I bought Fantasy Lover for my Kindle back in June 2011.  That means that I have had eight years to get to this book and haven’t been able to do it yet.  It does sound like my kind of story so hopefully I can work it in before another 8 years go by!

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it to others?

  1. I've read a few of her books but to be honest, got kind of overwhelmed that the series was starting to get so long. I'm sure I have several on my shelves I've forgotten all about!

  2. I've never read Sherrilyn Kenyon but I know so many people who really love her. Now I need to go look up what's going on in her personal life!

  3. oh I loved this book and this series up to about Archeron's book. Then things kind of went off for me. It is PNR so each book has a new couple although you might know of them from the previous book. There is a bit of connected-ness throughout as the characters often know each other and turn up sometimes in later books. Of course there are some characters I don't like. I've read about 20 of these. Anne – Books of My Heart
