I was not sure what to expect going into this book. I knew from the previous book Dane and the beginnings of this book that Bastian has a lover, Michaela. The synopsis on the back of the book mentions his love interest being Silvia. I had no desire to read about Michaela’s heart being broken so another woman could become Bastian’s focal love interest. Rest assured that is not where this book goes. I was pleased to read how it all worked out. It works for a very interesting read. Silvia is an Ephemeral. Ephemeral’s can take on a host body of a dying individual for a small time span. I loved how this concept worked for her character. It allowed for the romance in this book to take on a very deep love for the individual, not the physical appearance, or type of being.
The love story in this book is incredible. It is not only a very sexual erotic romance, but a deep passionate one. Bastian who never thought he would be capable of loving a female finds that he is in love with Silvia, but it is not quite that simple. He finds that he is falling in love and eventually he realizes that he in love with various individuals that all seem to be the same individual to him. He sees this one individual differently than anything else that he looks at. Silvia has to be close to Bastian. She seeks to reacquire some of the artifacts that he is excavating at his archeological dig site. These items originally belonged to her fellow Vestals. She feels that these items may free them from where they are currently trapped. Silvia realizes that every day she is with Bastian that she is falling in love with him. She knows that nothing can become of this due to the vows that she took when she became a Vestal.
This series keeps getting better. I am very eager to see where the next book is going to take the characters. Something very shocking occurs at the end of this book that is going to have some repercussions on how the Satyrs continue living their lives in EarthWorld. It is something that I really did not foresee and I am definitely curious to see how it will play out.
***Some males in this book have two penises. There is also M/M, F/F and ménage. This is all written tastefully and flows well with the eroticism of the book.***
