Giveaway (US/Can) & Spotlight on: Sevin (Lords of Satyr #7) by Elisabeth Amber

by davincikittieJune 11, 2012
Man-gods born to live and love forever, the Lords of Satyr are renowned for their sexual prowess. . .and unquenchable lust. . . 

The Beautiful. . .

Strong-willed and deeply sensual, Lord Sevin Satyr indulges freely in the delights of the flesh within the luxurious chambers of his infamous Salone di Passione, the talk of 1880s Rome. Surely the Humans who would deny his kind their pleasures can be persuaded to share them in a new Salone he plans just for them — above all, the beautiful Alexa Patrizzi. Fiery and spirited, she is made for sin. . .

And The Damned

A pulsing darkness grips the mind of Sevin’s younger brother Lucien, the unwilling possessor of powers he cannot control. Held in the Roman catacombs as a sex slave until he was eighteen, he finds refuge in the ElseWorld–and sexual healing in the arms of Natalia, a maenad, who thinks Luc too beautiful, too young for her. But when his mirrored eyes heat to molten silver at her touch, she can only love him more. . .

From GraveTells’ review of Sevin… 

If you haven’t read about the Satyr lords, I’m not going to spoil the unexpected secret about their physicality, but I will tell you that it is shocking and daring, like nothing else I’ve read in erotica or romance. If your tastes in sex scenes run to the exotic, you should pick up this series for that alone! Even so, the scenes are not nearly as crude or vulgar as you might expect. There is a Regency feel to Ms. Amber’s prose that is both soothing and scintillating. She writes prim and proper with as much panache as she depicts steamy and sultry. The story is also well-crafted, with a wealth of events and a relatable number of characters effortlessly woven into the narrative, so that picking up this series at book 7 doesn’t leave you feeling confused or irritated.

The element that rachets up the emotional intensity of this book is the secondary plotline of quiet, tortured, nearly-broken Lucien. What happens in the last quarter of the book will have you hooked, turning page after page to see what happens next.

If you’re not afraid to dive right in, give Sevin a look and see what the talk about these mysterious, scandalous Satyr men is all about.

    Erotica can run the spectrum, from mild to WTF? I prefer the milder type. I have this book on my TBR list. And I am very curious about the “special part” and I have been able to avoid spoilers about it thanks for the chance to win

    I like how the world is described in respect to that time. Also, I love that back then even a kiss would be considered risque.

    WOW! That is an awesome cover!! I love it! I do love me some historical erotica romance. I can go from mild to some of the darker elements. I love history, so getting some erotica with my history is an added bonus. You don’t get that in school 🙂

      I know, right?!! I had an actual physical copy of this book to review and I had to keep it covered up at work! Hah. DEFINITELY NSFW! Even the back is suggestive. Whew.

    I very much enjoy historical erotica because it becomes two of my favorite genres. I often want a historical romance that takes it a bit further in the bedroom and historical erotica does it.

    I’ve always enjoyed historical romance, but haven’t read an erotica version (tho some of the mainstream historicals seem to get pretty erotic sometimes, but maybe I just haven’t read enough erotica to compare).

    Amber’s books were some of the the first historical paranormal erotica I read and I’ve really enjoyed them. Definitely some different aspects to the series but great reads. Love an author who’s willing to take some risks and be unique.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I don’t think I’ve ever read historical erotica. I’m guessing it would depend on the story/author.
    Thank you.

    Yes I do. I like that it combines erotica and historical. Thanks for the chance to win!

    I love historicals that are satisfying. Don’t get me wrong I love Jane Austen and similar romances but they leave me wanting more intensity that you can get from a more erotic story.

    I like when subgenres of romance blend and I enjoying seeing what can be done with history when paranormal elements are added in. And hey, erotica? That’s just a bonus.

    Yes, I do. I like the good stories because of the combination of genres.

    I read all genres and subgenres of romance books. There is always a combination of history, mystery, etc. with the romance portion. It is a fantasy helping me to stay sane in real life.

    The Satyr books were my first foray into historical erotica and oh, how happy I was to find Elizabeth Amber! I haven’t read too many others, but I’m always open to pretty much any subgenre of erotica!
