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?

My favorite author. Love anything she writes.
Julian has been cursed to live in a book only to be summoned as a sex slave. For 2000 years he has lived that existence only being released from his prison from full moon to full moon. He goes hundreds of years trapped before he is summoned once again by Grace. She only does the spell as a joke to placate her best friend Selena not expecting anything to come of it. She does not believe in the supernatural. I have read this book several times and it still makes me feel for these two every time. An excellent angst filled love story.
All of the characters are so completely endearing. I love Grace and the way she sees last Julian’s looks and into his heart. Julian is delicious and so tortured. Selena is such a great character too! This book is totally unexpected on so many levels and I just love it. Highly recommend it. The witty banter, the fleshed-out characters, the exciting plot, the steaminess - it’s such a great book that I have read and re-read many many times.
