Blurb : Goodreads

It might sound like a man's favourite fantasy - to live forever, destined to be the lover of thousands of women. But for Julian of Macedon, it's a nightmare. Once he was a proud Spartan general; now he's a love-slave, his essence magically held captive in a book, cursed to spend all eternity pleasing women. Then, one day, Grace Alexander summons Julian to fulfill her passionate dreams - and sees beyond the fantasy to the man himself.

Long years as a sex therapist, listening to other people's bedroom problems, have taken a lot of the fun out of the physical side of love for Grace. But with or without sex, the rules of the enchantment cannot be changed - Julian is hers for the next month. And, as their time together slips by, Julian and Grace find more to share than sympathy and conversation and they begin to wonder if love might be within their grasp. That leaves only one question. Is love enough to break a 2,000 year old curse?

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



BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:


I finally got around to cracking open Fantasy Lover.

Quite simply I made the time.

TBR piles are a crazy thing these days.

We will soldier on but maybe never conquer.

I enjoyed this first installment.

I LOVED Julian.

I loved he turned down/didn’t even look at, those hussies that were blatantly throwing themselves at his beautiful self, because... this ex Spartan is in fact exquisite.

Two Thousand years of a curse has landed him in the nuddy in all his glory in front of Grace, with a little help from Selena.

Long story short he is ready to get it on.

Grace sees the other side to Julian.

Not sure how she can concentrate with his exquisiteness in front of her, but she manages to pull it off because she is a sex therapist, people.

She’s also had a bad time herself in the past so she can look past his nuddiness and beautiful self and she sees a deeper Julian.

This I enjoyed.

Then we watch Julian blossom in front of us.

He is all man...not that I was looking... and he is protective and all those things we love about a fictional man.

Grace has her own little side troubles thrown in.

There are quite the sexy times scattered throughout without cracking a home run.

Julian can kiss.

*toes curl*

Julian can do other things with his mouth.

*sits in front of a fan like a photo shoot is happening and I gotta blow my hair about*

There were a few cheesy bits, but for a book story published originally in 2002, compared to what is published now, it was enjoyable.

Looking forward to cracking on in this series and working out the order of the Dark Hunterverse because it has indeed become its own book planet with all the overlapping series.

The mind boggles.

A solid 4.25 Stars because I loved Julian so much.
