Bastian is number sex in The Lords of Satyr. I have always wanted to try this series, so when the author requested this book I jumped right on it and waited by my mailbox… I was kind of leery reading this one because Elizabeth told me up front there was some f/f I am so not a fan, nor a m/m fan and there was both. When I started reading and found the f/f at the first of the book I just didn’t like it and I almost gave up right then, but I was very intrigued with the heroine Silvia and just how s ...more

Bastian is my kind of man! He's a nerd with a more than healthy sexual appetite. I find it intriguing Amber did for Bastian the same that was done to Nicholas. I wondered why Nicholas shared his woman and the others didn't and now Bastian does the same in a different way. If I ever get the chance, I will ask her why the oldest must share. Beyond that, this was a sensual erotic ride into a world I've come to love. It's always a treat to see what woman Amber will bring to these men and how the sto ...more

I was not sure what to expect going into this book. I knew from the previous book Dane and the beginnings of this book that Bastian has a lover, Michaela. The synopsis on the back of the book mentions his love interest being Silvia. I had no desire to read about Michaela’s heart being broken so another woman could become Bastian’s focal love interest. Rest assured that is not where this book goes. I was pleased to read how it all worked out. It works for a very interesting read. Silvia is an Eph ...more

I liked the story, but found the romance a bit violent for me. Sometimes it seemed closer to force than a romance should involve (in my opinion).

:) Re-reading that review makes me smile. I originally read this when I was in my early 20s and a bit more innocent in my reading tastes. If I ever have the chance to re-read this after reading the whole series from the start I imagine it'll get a better rating and more descriptive review. Considering the length of my to-read list, which are all unread

Elizabeth Amber has created a world of fantasy, based in the old religions and histories of Europe and Rome. The rich textures of this world are fascinating, and the mix of real history and fantasy are so well combined to draw the reader into the story.

Michaela and Silvia were best friends for untold centuries, until Michaela chooses to become mortal for the man she loves.

Raised in the temple of Vesta, Silvia is one of the Vestal Virgins, while Michaela becomes a Companion, trained to pleasure

Bastian by Elizabeth Amber
Paranormal Romance - April 26th, 2011
5 stars

Known for her highly erotic and decadent paranormal romances, Elizabeth Amber returns with her best book to date! Not since her first book have I been so thrilled. This story is a harmonious blend of sensuality and pitch-perfect plotting. Even though it is part of series, I feel that this story can be read by itself but it would help having read at least one in the series.

First readers should note that this is a different Satyr clan than the others in the series. This is a Satyr clan from Rome (not Tuscany) in the 1850’s time period. The brothers in this series are Bastian, Sevin, Dane, and Lucian.
The Satyr clan of Tuscany, from the 1794 to 1813 time period and are Dominic, Nicolas, Lyon, and Raine. I don’t think the two clans are related but I’m not 100% sure. I was a bit confused myself, with a new Satyr clan, which is why I’m relating the other clans and name

Silvia has been traveling the earth for centuries - she was the virgin servant of the goddess Vesta, along with 11 other "sisters". Part of their duties to the goddess was to keep her fire lit, and they were each entrusted a sacred stone to keep in the fire pit. When the temple was destroyed, the girls fled, and the stones were scattered. She's now charged by the evil Pontifex to find the stones. He's imprisoned her sisters and he's getting impatient. Silvia's best friend, Michaela, left the sis ...more

Excuse me while I turn my fan up to high! When I first started reading this series, I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to accept the Satyr realm. I mean, when the guys have double the private parts during certain days of the year, some might think that is a little extreme. Well, most people would be yelling double the pleasure, but others might not want to accept it in their reading. I was squirming and hiding my face at the beginning of these books to the point to where I would hide the bo ...more

I know that some people do not read erotica because there really is no plot but something contrived so that the smex scenes can rule the book. You'll be happy to know that this is not the case in this book. Oh yes, there is lots of smex scenes, but they fit well within the story and there is more adventure here than who is bedded.

The main story is about the Vestal Virgins who were turned ephemeral to escape the destruction of their temple. There were 12 instead of the known 6 and they were paire

This is by far my favorite in the Lords of Satyr series. Silvia and Machaela are ephemerals that were once part of the vestals that served the goddess Vesta. Pledge to service when they were young girls, they became more than best friends. When the temple was overran they were changed from mortals to the eternal ephemerals with the ability to take hosts from those that are dying. Machaela gives up her immortality for the man she loves, believing that she can make him love her in time.

The forum excavations in Rome go on, directed by Lord Bastian Satyr. Out of nowhere a mysterious haunting voice calls to him. He cannot see this person but the voice is decidedly female. She lures him to the site of a long vanished temple, where the Vestal Virgins once performed rites of erotic surrender. The archaeological find will make his career but his heart is telling him something is wrong. Silvia is a pure Ephemeral; she can enter the bod

This is a 3.5 for me. I liked Bastian a lot. He's better than any of the other Satyrs. Since I've read these a bit out of order, I'm confused. I don't know if Bastian is before or after the Nicolas. I'm guessing after. Who I really liked is Silvia. She's quirky and amuses me. Leading Bastian on a chase like that was pretty amusing. I kept thinking of "Invasions of the Body Snatchers" when I read this book.

Silvia a good one though. She tries her best to do what is right. The story could have dra

Well, this is the sixth book in Amber Lords of Satyr series and she shows no signs of slowing.

This is the Second book in her Second series of books on the Lords of Satyr and overall, I really enjoyed the book.

The story moved at a very good pace and the cat and mouse games between the two characters was one that was very engaging.

I did fall for Bastian and thought he was a pretty well rounded character. As for Silvia, she was not your typical heroine in these books. She didn't let the good looks

What did I think? ... I absolutely loved every bit and piece of this fantastic novel!!! I can not stress it enough. I am not a person who reads a lot. My interest happen to come across the Lords of Satyr series, and Bastian is forever my utmost favorite. Ladies, the plot line is absolutely to die for, it's romantic in all the rights ways, not cheesy romantic, it's steamy, and if you're looking for that other-world fantasy, it's all right here! What I really like about Bastian is that there is a ...more

A VERY erotic story based on the mythological creature known as a satyr from the Greco-Roman world and who are descended from Bacchus/Dionysus (god of wine and passion).

The time period is early 19th century. Lord Bastian and his brothers are satyrs living in the modern world and the last of their kind. Wealthy owners of vast vineyards, they have been tasked with finding the daughters of a fairy king in Elseworld (the home of magic and fey creatures). The king, on his deathbed, has disclosed tha

The mythological and archeological aspects of this book were interesting. The love scenes not so much. They were full of trite, ridiculous euphemisms which are the norm in this genre, but definitely not my cup of tea. I won a copy of this book through a GoodReads giveaway and received it in the mail, autographed with a nice personal note from the author. The mini-bio on the back cover says that the author is an art historian. I think I'd like to read any nonfiction work about art history by her.

I LOVED THIS STORY!!! What more can I say that hasn't already been said. I stayed up all night to finish. The storyline was fantastic. Great plots, twists and turns that kept you guessing at the next move. Ms. Amber's writing, as always, was poetic and enchanting. The ending wasn't as spectacular as I wanted it to be. I wanted blood, guts and comeuppance for the protaganists. But alas, it was just...meh. But don't fret the ending left the door open for more great stories to come in the Lord of S ...more

Wow - I really enjoyed this book and I wasn't sure I was even going to like it! I read some reviews and thought... I will either LOVE this or HATE this. Luckily (for me) I LOVED it :) Um, Bastian. Is. Hot!! How much he loved Silvia in the end was beautiful. I couldn't get enough of them, the worst part about this books it that it had to end. I'm a big fan! It was my first Elizabeth Amber book, too, and what a great intro to a new author it was! :D

i have to say that i thini this is the best book of the satyr series yet.
the storyline is completely different from the other books. i love how bastian's love interest was throughout the book. you didnt know when she was going to "pop" up.
i also love how the author brought the specific history of what bastian was doing into the book. i actually looked up the actal events because i was interested in learning more.

another great Saytr book. i cannot wait to see which book comes out next

This was the first book I have read by this author, and I will be looking for the other books in this series.
I liked the premise behind the heroine being able to take over any dying body. THAT idea was exceptionally cool in my opinion.
The other concept I loved? The fact that the hero could and would love the heroine in whatever body she chose.
The rest of the book description you can read in what the others have written. I don't want to give everything away ;o)

One of my favorites in this series. Great plot and pace. Desireable characters. Yummy Bastian will win you over. Strong, handsome, and determine to find the source of his new vision. Silvia is a likable female who must overcome Elseworld tormoil in order to have Earthworld peace. Very inspiring love story mixed with all the excitement. A great read!I had trouble putting it down once I started reading.

I received this book thru a goodreads giveaway. It's scorching hot. I loved the snippets of the life of a Vestal Virgin! Those were pretty cool & they really helped with the storyline. The only thing I had trouble with was keeping up with all of the players. This book was a little too crowded for me.

I'd really like to thank the author for all the fabulous swag she included with the book. I really appreciated it.

I picked this book up on a whim. I was in one of my local libraries and saw this and another lords of Satyr book just sitting there on the the shelf. The had hardly been touched or checked out. I checked them out and brought them home and I was not disappointed. This was an amazing story with many plots and twist. I loved all the characters even the evil ones. The book was a very fast read and highly entertaining. I would definitely recommend this.

3 1/2. I was really wary of how Amber would handle a certain plot point, but read the reviews which all said "don't worry, it's not what you expect."

Apparently I don't think like anyone who wrote those reviews, because it turned out to be exactly what I expected, exactly what I didn't want to happen, and it really bothered me for the rest of the book.

Not my favorite in the series to be sure.

The storyline in this sexually explicit book was very imaginative. I liked how true love developed and heroine's character was even more enjoyable near the end. Silvia is an emphemeral who can enter bodies and become any woman a man might want but virile Bastian is the only man she desires especially at moonful.

To be honest, the book only started to appeal to me the min Michaela was out of the picture....I feel like she was a very redundant character honestly. And the build up for the story was alrigh but the actual battle and how things got resolved....well that was damn disappointing. At the end, everything was rushed.

Enjoyable overall with some very steamy scenes through out. It did feel overlong in some places. Altogether a solid read. 3.5 stars
