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?

Wouldn’t it be nice if a hunk came popping out of a book?
This book utilises different aspects of Greek Mythology and combined it with an urban New Orleans setting. Julians character is one with a sordid history and is a very well developed character which I enjoyed reading about. Grace was a smart, funny character with some hilarious dialogue thrown in. The interactions between these two characters is electric and as the plot goes along one cannot help but wish these two together. The plot is fact paced, action-packed and funny all at the same time. This book is an introduction to the Dark Hunter world which is going to be an excellent one for any reader to immerse themselves in. New Orleans has a new paranormal world that is waiting to be explored.
Keep Calm and Read On,
