December Group Read: Fantasy Lover by Sherrilyn Kenyon


Vampire Book Club group readSomehow I have never read the Dark-Hunter series. I know! I’m almost embarrassed to admit it here, but have decided you should know I’ll be taking the Dark-Hunter journey for the first time with out December group read. Yes, I’ll finally be cracking open the copy of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Fantasy Lover that has sat on my to-read shelf for years. (I’m not the only one who buys books when they have hundreds to be read, right?)

I know many of you will be re-reading this first in the series for the group read, but I want to encourage the other first-timers to give it a go with me. From what I hear, we’re in for a hell of a ride and plenty of romance. It’s winter. We need extra romance, right?

Sound off in the comments below: Will you be reading or re-reading Fantasy Lover with the VBC crew in December? Expect discussion questions up at the VBC Goodreads boards soon.

Dear Reader,

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?

    the dark hunter series is in my top 5. “acheron” (book 15)is the cream of the crop. good reading to you all! 🙂

    Do be aware that Fantasy Lover is unlike ANY of the other Dark-Hunter books so much that many lists do not include it as book #1. It is a very good novel but the main thing you get from it (other than a good story) is some characters you will see again 🙂
