The three Satyr brothers, Nicholas, Raine and Lyon, are heirs to a successful winery in Tuscany. The brothers are not what they appear to be, however. They are half-human, half-Satyrs, born from the ElseWorld and living in the EarthWorld.

One day they receive a letter from King Feydon telling them that he is dying. The King informs them that he sired three daughters who are half faerie, and that the brothers must find them and marry them in order to protect them. Reluctant at first, the brothers decide that they must do their duty. Nicholas goes in search of his bride while Raine and Lyon stay and take care of the winery.

Jane Cova knows that she is different. She’s able to heal plants, and can feel things that others are feeling. And she has these strange things that are growing from her shoulders. She seeks a way to cure her “abnormalities,” but so far has been unsuccessful.

When Nicholas Satyr asks for her hand, Jane is stunned. Why would this gorgeous, successful man want to marry her? She sees it as a way out of her house, where her father and her aunt Izabel rule. Maybe, just maybe, she can find a way to cure her problems. Then, she can leave her husband and then she and her sister, Emma, can disappear from their family and live alone.

When Jane arrives on Satyr land, she realizes that not everything is as it seems. She also realizes that being different is not a bad thing.

Nicholas kept me captivated from the first page to the last. Nicholas and Jane fascinated me, separately and together. I felt for both characters. Nicholas is strong and loyal. Jane is the same way. Both of them have things they are keeping from the other, but they find themselves drawn to each other. Together they find that they can love, and live as they want, and not as others want them to.

The sexual aspects of this book are highly erotic, and kept me spellbound and wanting more. Ms. Amber has created highly provocative scenes that made me shiver.

Elizabeth Amber has drawn a world that pulls you in and keeps hold of your heart and mind. Nicholas is a definite Joyfully Reviewed Recommended Read for me.
