And I thought the first book was odd! Add a hermaphrodite into the mix, and this book tops the first. It definitely makes for a unique type of story that you won't come across often.

Now that Nicholas has found and married his FaerieBlend wife, it is Raine's turn. He's not so anxious to me married...again. His first try imploded when his human wife could not handle his extreme sensuality and he vowed never to marry again. Or to sire children that would have to face the life he has as a half-Human

There’s a reason this book has a red cover – it SIZZLES HOT enough to burn my fingers. In my review of Amber’s first book NICHOLAS I remarked that I hoped she would let her imagination loose. She definitely DID NOT DISAPPOINT.

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

What do I say about this one?? This is the most erotic, weirdest book I have ever read. Okay that being said it was a good story don't get me wrong but...... Whoa!!! Yes I agree the cover needs to be red but really flaming, scarlet red. It actually took me 4 days to read this and I am still wondering about what the other 2 would be like. If you are not into heavily, descriptive erotic novels, do not buy this book. But if you are, you will enjoy it

The heroine is a hermaphrodite that can climax with sperm. Or some other ejaculate. Not that I care because that was just disturbing.
And I do not scare easily.
And she...you know...her husband in the end.
The eeew factor was...1000% there.

18/1 - Well! I can safely say, without even thinking about it, that I've never read the 'heroine is a hermaphrodite' trope. Add that to the 'hero is a sex beast who grows a second penis on the full moon' trope and you've got a very interesting romance.

I spent the first few chapters feeling a driving need to punch someone. Specifically the inhumane asses who thought it was perfectly okay (perhaps even normal) to be invited to a private (as private as a theatre with around 200 spectators in the au

Wow! Talk about an unusual book! I am actually surprised that I enjoyed this one so much, but I recommend reading it if you read Nicholas (the first book) already. Its way better than the first one!

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

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

This is the perfect book to show that nothing, and I mean NOTHING is scared. A story better suited for Literotica.com if anything.

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

I read this as a reviewer and loved it. It's book 2 in this trilogy about half-satyr (in myth, satyrs were followers of the wine god Bacchus) brothers who own a vineyard in Tuscany and receive a letter that sends them in search of fairy brides.

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.

Have you ever started read an unconventional romance novel that you genuinely like only to have it ruined by a graphic depiction of a brutal rape and murder? This happened before the two romantic leads have even had a chance to kiss. Talk about a mood killer.

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

One-word review: Wat.

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

This is the second book in the Lords of Satyr series and it is just as good or better than the first one, Nicholas. As with the first one, this one is definitely not for just anyone. If you don't enjoy the strange and unusual then I suggest you look elsewhere. Personally, I love the strange and unusual and therefore I loved this one.

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

Ok, This was a book that I wasn't sure I would like. Mainly because the fact that the heroine was a hermaphrodite and I was a bit uncomfy about it. I'd read reviews too so everything was pointing to a book I'd miss out.

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

I never know how to review these books. They're so cracktastic and bizarre in the fantasy-erotica way, that I'm still surprised I like them so much. Then again, if you "survived" the first book in this series, then you're probably already along for the crazy, crazy ride of crazysauce on the crazytrain. I mean, I've been in a month-long reading slump, and the one book that snaps me out of it is an erotic romance involving a double-cocked half-satyr and a half-fae hermaphrodite*?

Content note: many different kinds of nonconsensual sexual activities.


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

Love Jordan! Love her!

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

May contain a few spoilers!

I devoured this entire book in one day!

I think it was (for me) Jordan who made such a massive difference between this book and the previous one, Nicholas. Within the first few pages you get unexpectantly sucker punched with the fact that Jordan is a hermaphrodite. I know you didn't expect that either, right? LOL
But surprisingly what made me immediately fall in love with Jordan was the quick spark of humour we get to see...

Raine is the second book of the trilogy of The Lords of Satyr by Elizabeth Amber and one I had been anxiously awaiting. This book was definitely worth the wait! Each story focuses on one of the three brothers, the last Lords of the Satyr and the trials they go through to find their half fairy mates in an effort to protect their secrets and their lives.

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

Raine redeemed Ms. Amber for me. I didn't like the first book, Nicholas so much. Raine, I enjoyed because he's a better male than his brother. Raine is actually a stoic satyr with scientific leanings. I like him. The fact that he doesn't mind his fated female to have both a dick and pussy, well, that has me happily humming. Yes, I rated this book 3.5 out of 5 because of the sex. So sue me. This time around, Jordan is the one who is a "sexual freak". She has testes in her pussy lips! Yes, you rea ...more

So - book two didn't really make this series any less "icky" with certain elements. I felt the story still felt short of it's potential and Raine was so aloof until the very end that it was hard for me to really like him. Sure, he had sexual magnetism and his lust was constant but why? Are Satyrs just sexual by nature? Jordan on the other hand? I found it interesting that she wanted to live life as a woman but still have sex (on occasion) as a man with her own penis. To me that was just strange. ...more

This series is Paranormal and takes you back to the 1800's and into the world where magical beings and happenings exist, but are hidden from those whom are merely human.

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

Oh, this one's a keeper. I enjoyed Raine & Jordan's story so much more than that of his brothers. Would recommend reading this one first, even if it is second in the series. I think the reason I enjoyed this one more was because regardless of what all had been done to Jordan and how different she was, Raine loved her. I guess that's what drew me to them, because isn't that what true love is about? Loving each other regardless of our faults, be they emotional or physical? Recommend this one t ...more

This book pushes the erotic boundaries in that the heroine is one of the most unusual ones I've read. Once again, this author has surprised me and she continues to write well.

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

Oh damn. I wanted to like this. Yeah, no.

Jordan was both both genders. The doctor that delivered her/him made a deal with Jordan's mother: every year on the birthday he'd get to use the double sexed baby as the subject of his medical lecture and in exchange he'd keep the secret and allow Jordan to live as a boy, therefore keeping the fortune. Because, you know, universe forbid a women get anything. After Jordan turns 19 and 'it's' mother dies, Jordan is offered the chance to live with Raine, a

Raine searches for his bride in Venice and accidentally finds her naked on stage in front of an audience. Jordan is a hermaphrodite who is exploited by a physician who sees her as only a specimen for study. She returns to the Satyr estate with Raine, learns about his past as well as her own, and becomes okay with Raine knowing all of her. Marriage ensues, as half-sisters she and Jane become fast friends and she explores both sides of her sexuality. Great sexy read!!

#2 Lords of Satyr - Erotica, Not for the Easily Offended

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!

I picked up this book and finished it the same night I started it. It is an excellent follow-up to Nicholas - it's probably better, at least IMHO. Thought the ending had some weird elements that could potentially spoil the third book, but I'll just have to read it to see...
