Justin has always been fascinated with the paranormal, his father used to tell his stories when he was a child and he can’t help feel that there is some truth to them. But being seemingly the only man who believes in fairies isn’t easy and he has been searching for evidence of their existence for years. But he may have got more then he bargained for when he has a strange erotic dream about a beautiful red haired woman with pink fairy wings…A man who believe in fairies? Doesn’t sound too promising; however, if all guys who believe in fairies are as great as Justin then bring ’em on! He was intelligent, hot and funny and I can’t blame Scarlata (Scary to her friends) for falling for him. The chemistry between the two was sizzling, and they literally couldn’t keep their hands of each other, which means it is lucky for them that sex creates magical energy! Being chased through the woods by mad men with guns? Stop for a quick hot shag and you are all set! Not that I minded; although there is a lot of sex in this book it didn’t feel like you were stumbling from one sex scene to the other with a flimsy plot holding it up inbetween.
This book also introduces you to the Etruscan pantheon and fairytales with all the paranormal beings that come with it and has started building up an interesting new world where all the god, godesses and mythological creatures that you have heard about stand a good chance of walking amongst us. This large and potentially complex world sets you up for a lot of future possibilities in the following books and I can’t wait to read more!
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?
