The three Satyr
brothers, Nicholas, Raine and Lyon, are heirs to a successful
winery in Tuscany. They are also are half-human, half-Satyrs,
born from the ElseWorld and living in the EarthWorld. They
were sent to find three half-faerie daughters of a dying king.
The two older
brothers have found their loves, and now itís time for Lyon to
depart to Paris and find the third, and last, sister. But when
he arrives he finds not one, but two trails of faerie scent,
one leading to the river, and one leading to a woman named
Lyon is confused about the two scents, but the one from
Juliette is the strongest, so he sets out to get close to her,
and fulfill his duty.
her culinary skills, Juliette is not your typical courtesan.
Fiercely guarded by her protector, M. Valmont, she hates her
life, and longs for it to change. When she meets Lyon she is
very attracted, but knows it could never work. When she cooks
for Lyon on a Moonful night she discovers a man unlike any she
has ever seen. But the night is nearly Lyonís undoing.
Afterward he must battle to discover what has happened, and
fix it before itís too late.
absolutely loved the Lords of Satyr books, and when they were
first introduced, Lyon is the brother that attracted my
attention. Thatís why I eagerly awaited the arrival of this
book. But itís also why this review is hard to write.
Lyon, just like I thought I would. He is strong and dominant,
which makes me shiver. Juliette is a well-drawn character, not
wanting to stay in her life, but knowing she has no choice.
Together they are explosive, and perfect.
for me was one scene with two male shimmerskins, which raised
a major ick factor for me and made me shiver, and not in a
good way. That scene almost cut it for me, but the strong
finish of the book, and the creative way Ms. Amber wove in the
fourth faerie scent, and set up another book made me shiver in
a good way.
All in all, Lyon
is a great addition to the series. I will probably read the
book again, but will skip over that one scene, the only thing
that kept this book from receiving a Recommended Read nod. The
book did leave me waiting for the fourth book. The Lords of
Satyr books are creative and well written, a trip into
fantasyland that plumps up your senses. If you havenít checked
them out yet, start from the beginning. Then sit back and
enjoy the ride. Youíll be glad you did.
