Be warned if your tastes in erotica don’t run to the abnormal skip this book. On the other hand if you enjoy reading about double phallused satyrs and their hermaphrodite FaerieBlend brides, then you’re in for a real erotic treat.
I’m definitely NOT going to say anything mor...more
Warning: Contains Spoilers
This book was better than the first. Definitely. As much as I did like the introduction to the Lords of Satyr series, Nicholas and Jane were such a bore, that when I read about Raine and Jordan I was pleasantly thrilled. I knew Raine would fall the deepest, and Jordan was fun, sassy, and humorous. That she had both male and female genitals came as a shock to me. I really wasn't expecting that little development, I had to reread the paragraph just to m...more
The best way I can describe the issues I had with this book without spoilers* are by describing them as the deplorable treatment of a leading female (not by the leading male) and the overwrought theme of “this is as good as it gets.” It was...more
Raine is the middle brother of the 3 Satyr brothers. The are part human, part creature from ElseWorld (an alternative world to Earth). They hear from they kind of the Fey, whom they have an alliance with, that he has fathered 3 daughters by Earth woman. These 3 daughters need the protection and the m...more
Nicholas went to Rome, but Raine finds his VERY UNUSUAL bride in Venice.
Very sexy, explicitly erotic, great historical and winemaking details included. Good detail and an interesting, dramatic story.
After a horrific first marriage the last thing Raine wants is another wife. But he must follow the wishes of King Feydon and find his mate. He tr...more
Magical gardens, vineyards of life and gateways to otherworlds.
In book 2, Raine, the middle Satyr brother must travel to find his predestined bride in Venice. Time is of the essence and a threatening plague upon the family's vineyard weighs heavy on his mind. His journey to Venice is to attend a lecture regarding the disease affe...more
Wow, what an amazing imagination the author has! Like #1 Nicholas, I've never read anything like this, erotica-wise or along the lines of mythical gods and creatures.
Will absolutely continue with this series!
The story is about acceptance and has a good plot complete with bad guys from ElseWorld trying to get the heroine, and it continues the storyline about the grapevines being under threat.
If you just want a lightly sexy read, look elsewhere. This book is steaming HOT. The main romance and sex scenes are between the heroine...more
This is a novel about two people who really, really suck at communicating with each other and never actually learn better, but it's okay because it's also an erotic novel, so they can just have lots of sex instead!
I read Raine at Oreotalpa's request (she won a charity auction in which I was offering to review a romance novel). When she emailed me my assignment, she included a list of caveats, saying she'd totally understand if...more
Raine is the second story in her Lord of Satyrs series. This is an erotic historical paranormal romance from the Kensington Aphrodisia line that likes to push the envelope. And when it comes to erotic, especially paranormal, lines are crossed. But there are some things you just don't touch and Raine crosses so many lines that I couldn't decide to laugh or gasp in horr...more
Jordan is half human and half faerie. She has both male and female body parts. The doctor who delivered her at birth pronounced her as a male so her mother could keep the estate fortune. In return, Jordan is required to be on display, examined and touched by the medical community once a year each year. Raine is half human and half satyr. He is asked by the faerie king to find her and protect her from evil ones in the else world who will use her to invade e...more
Boy was I wrong. This book surpassed the first one and I really did care about both leads in this book.
I really felt for Jordan and the perdiciment she was in. In order to keep the doctor who declared her male at birth and therefore able to keep her fathers inheritance, she had t...more
Raine is the second Satyr brother who travels to Venice seeking his Fairieblend wife. He finds Jordan who is an hermaphrodite that has lived most of her life as a ma...more
Extended review: Admittedly, I read this for the trainwreck value. I read the excerpts on Amber's website and went, "Wait, they're half-satyrs... who grow another penis when the moon is full... and there's another world called 'ElseWorld'... and they have to find wives that are 'FaerieBlend'? WAT." I thought it sounded incredibly bizarre, but for some reason, I needed to read it.
Good things: The heroine, Jordan, was a very fleshed-out character. Her struggle to find her ge...more
Okay, as open-minded as I am, I'd almost stopped reading this when I'd realized the main heroine - a mix of faerie princess and mortal woman - is also... a mix of MAN and woman! Yes, the leading lady is a hermaphrodite!!
All I can say is, I'm SO glad I continued to read this in spite of my reservations, because this is one of the BEST HEROINES I've ever read in a book, EVER. Elizabeth Amber did such an amazing job of showing Jordan [the heroine's:] intelligence, sense of humor and vulnerability b...more

After reading Nic's book i had high hopes for this one, and it wasnt that those hopes werent reached they were kinda.
Raine falls in love with a hermaphrodite which personally was a little confrunting as ive never read guy on guy scences. Once i got past that it was still a little odd really. Jordan is just a very confused character and...more
I actually liked this book better than the first in the series: Nicholas. There were a couple reasons. First, I thought the story was better put together. Everything flowed and it didn't feel like anything was stuck in only for its content - in Nicholas, some of the more unconventional sex scenes felt like they were added just to have the content and not to actually develop the story. This book still had those types of scenes, but they all had their purpose.
Second, I really...more
Annotation: Like his brother, Nicholas, Raine Satyr has been ordered by the deceased king of Faerie to find one of the king's daughters and marry her. Raine sets out to Venice, finds Jordan, and brings her back to his Tuscan estate. Jordan is considered a high prize amongst...more
