SUMMARY:

Man-gods born to live and love forever, the Lords of Satyr are renowned for their sexual prowess. . .and unquenchable lust. . .

Call My Name

The forum excavations in Rome go on, directed by the iron-willed, charismatic Lord Bastian Satyr. Out of nowhere, a mysterious, haunting voice calls out to him. . .and lures him to the site of a long-vanished temple, where vestal virgins once performed rites of erotic surrender. The temple is the find of his career, but his heart is about to face the unknown. . .

Michaela is a pure Ephemeral. She can enter the bodies of others—and become any woman a man might wish to possess. His choice is her pleasure. And the commanding and utterly virile Bastian is the only man she desires. . .

MY THOUGHTS:

Excuse me while I turn my fan up to high!  When I first started reading this series, I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to accept the Satyr realm.  I mean, when the guys have double the private parts during certain days of the year, some might think that is a little extreme.  Well, most people would be yelling double the pleasure, but others might not want to accept it in their reading.  I was squirming and hiding my face at the beginning of these books to the point to where I would hide the book from being seen in public.  Yet, I embraced the authors creativity and writing and fell in love the with the Lords of Satyr!

Author Elizabeth Amber writes very erotic reads and be forewarned if you are not a fan of these books!  More importantly, if you are under the age of eighteen, step away from the book!  I on the other hand will be snagging her books up like crazy so I can get my smut fix!

Bastian and his brothers guard a magical vineyard where supernaturals can cross over to Elseworld.  Bastian is also the eldest brother of the bunch.  His passion lies with archeology and  excavating the ruins of the vestal virgins.  


Michaela is an Ephemeral.  She can live in a human body and become a fantasy for any man.  She falls hard for Bastian and gives up her immortality to become human so she could live with Bastian. Now we enter Michaela's friend Silvia. She is also an Ephemeral and disapproves of her friends choice.  While watching Michaela and Bastian together in bed, she finds herself being tempted to be with a man.  While she has these feelings, she refuses to acknowledge them because her friend is in love with him.  Silvia is also on a mission to recover important stones that Bastian just happens to be looking for on his excavation.  


I felt sorry for Silvia.  I wanted her to be happy with Bastian, but I also wanted Michaela to be happy with him as well.  Oh, how I loathe the angst of a love triangle when the author has me cheering for all involved! Eventually the author puts me on the right path of which character would be suitable for the sexy Bastian and it made me love the book even more!  Bastian has to be my favorite Satyr so far in the series.  He is fun, loving and sexy as hell!  One of the best in the series so far!


MY RATING:


Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf

For Rereading! 5 STARS
