Words that come to mind are; luscious, yummy, delicious, well you get the idea. This book is unlike anything I've read before and that was certainly part of it's appeal. Apart, from the one of the best hero's I've read about in quite some time.

The story is set in mythological Camelot and the King is Karrigan who is a very tortured soul, he lives a miserable existence alone in his hell. Along comes Serena an innocent girl who slowly breaks down the ice that surrounds him. It is an interesting story and I enjoyed the paranormal aspect of the book. When you read a romance novel there isn't the same amount of depth that you find in other genres i.e. fantasy. The reader is expected to accept the information without deep explanations as to why things are the way they are, as is the case with this book. Kinley MacGregor created an unusual hero and a strong and endearing heroine who were both believable. For me my favourite part of all romance novels is the 'ahh' factor at the end and this book certainly had that. This is the first book I've read from this author and I will definitely read more.
