Format: Mass Market Paperback
Grace is given a present of an ancient Greek book by a friend; the book contains a picture of a *very* handsome man - a Greek god in appearance. Her friend insists that if Grace performs a very strange ritual, the Greek god, who is apparently a love-slave, will come to life and be Grace's personal love-slave for a month. Drunk and disbelieving, Grace performs the ritual... and Julian appears in front of her. As large as life, and very, very naked. And ready for action, in whatever way Grace wants him!
Grace, however, isn't a believer in casual sex; her only previous experience was with a man who hurt her very much and then made fun of her publicly afterwards. She's not, therefore, about to jump into bed with a perfect stranger, no matter how attractive he is or how sexily he talks to her. Julian, on the other hand, is compelled to want her as a result of the curse which put him inside the book, and he also recognises that she needs someone to teach her to enjoy sex. And he's determined to do just that!
I thought at this point that the book was going to be a pure romp. But in fact it ended up being very much deeper. Julian is a tortured soul; he had a loveless life before being cursed, and ever since he's been treated abusively by the women who summoned him, in some cases chained to their beds, never allowed anywhere except their bedrooms, and frequently having to plead for food as a reward for sex. To them, he was a body, not a man.
Grace is determined to treat him better than that; he is determined to help her overcome her distrust of men. But even if both manage to achieve their objectives, there is still the hard fact that at the next full moon Julian will disappear back into the book, to be trapped there until the next time someone summons him.

Pretty Bizarre this romance by Sherrilyne Kenyon; it opens with the recounting of the ancient Greek legend of Julian of Macedon, brother of Cupid and beautiful Son of the Goddess Aphrodite. Priapus, his half brother, jealous of his prowess manages to have him cursed for all eternity to a fate worse than death - sex. He is trapped in the dark pages of an ancient book unable to move or speak until summoned by whoever happens to possesses the magical literature and utters his name three times under a full moon. When summoned he is driven by an irresistible force make mad passionate love to his temporary mistress for one lunar month at the end of which, his is recaptured in the dark pages immobile, for perhaps centuries until called again. Yes, you guessed it, love god became sex slave.
Kenyon keeps her tongue firmly in her cheek as we watch thoroughly modern, hopelessly cynical Grace Alexander, stumble through said procedure to please her superstitious friend and accidentally find a naked Spartan demi god in her living room. Of course from their on in we have every woman's fantasy unfurling before our very eyes. Julian is incredibly attractive and sensitive, firm and of course is... how shall I put this delicately? Constantly ..ehem ... at the ready to fulfil his obligations as a sex god. The story lies in Graces desire not only to have his body but free him from the pages of the book that denies him his liberty.
Kenyon certainly can rival Johanna Lindsey for coming up with ideas that make her storytelling refreshingly unusual. I can't say she has as much talent, though the humour is there, the situations and responses are a tad too predictable to surprise a genuine laugh out of you, but you certainly smile.

The best read I've had in a while. Julian is from ancient Macedonian. Who has been trapped in the pages of a book for the last two thousand years. His only release is to be used as a sex slave for a month and then sent back between the pages. Grace is the modern miss who aims to rescue him. This book is a keeper. I can't wait for the next book by Sherrilyn Kenyon. If you like something different in a romance give it a try.

You might have heard the basics before - caught in a book after being cursed by a god, Julian, Macedonian warrior general, emerges from his literary prison to act as a 'love slave' for his conjuror for one month, before he is forced to return to his imprisonment. Grace Alexander is the disbeliever that actually summons him, and now must keep him for the next month.
After this point, however, Kenyon has added a new element. Grace has been very much hurt in the past, and has a thing about being used as a sex object, or indeed doing the same to anyone else. To Julian's stunned amazement (part of his 'gift' is supposed to be that he is irresistible to women) Grace will not have sex with him. After the first night, they find out that there is a way to break the curse. One that will cost the both of them. Julian his sanity, and Grace her heart. Another compelling element about the book is Kenyon's obviously substantial research into Spartica / Greece history and myths. There are also genuinely comic moments such as Julian's brother Eros and Grace's rather eccentric best friend. These touches lift the book from the ordinary and bring emotional depth to the tale. Julian has been badly damaged by his human past as much as the curse.
How the two make a connection, and the necessarily slow burn of the sexual side of their relationship, combine to lift this book from the ranks of the ordinary and give it that something special.
