After really enjoying Knight of a Trillion Stars I decided to go straight on to this book about Lorgin’s younger brother Rejar. It started pretty much where the other book left off and after stepping into the vortex-thing Rejar lands in a carriage in cat form in regency England. He also finds himself in the carriage with Lilac who he is straight away intrigued by, and so he starts hunting his sensual prey as only a Familiar can!

I wanted to like this book sooooooo much, and I did kind of, but the one thing I cannot stand in a book is an annoying heroine. And Lilac really irritated me. I don’t know why, I understood why she was so resistant to Rejar and to be fair there was less whining as much as alot of her being angry. But it got on my nerves ALOT.

Also I don’t really feel the chemistry between them, and when they finally declared their love I wasn’t convinced. I think the problem was that there wasn’t enough about them as a couple, there was plenty about them having amazing sex, but apart from that I didn’treally see a connection.

But this book did have some fun bits and although I had many eye rolling moments I did enjoy it.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
