Lego- I mean Elathan, the exciled heir to the throne, finds Igraine at a bridge about to kill herself, but instead of allowing her to die, he abducts her and decides to make her his slave…his luurvvve slave. But been as elves can literally fuck a woman to death he has to strengthen her mind and body first. As he trains her, he begins to see her as more then just his slave. But trouble is brewing in the elven realm where Elathan’s half brother plotting to kill their father, the King and Elathan must come out of his excile and try and save the kingdom.If this book was real, I am not sure what I would wish for more, the very sexy elf come to brutally sweep me off my feet, or the magical cave that makes you lose weight and become more beautiful. Throughout the book I fluctuated depending on how much Elathan was annoying me at the time. And he did tend to annoy me, especially at first, he was an alpha male where alpha turns out to mean bully and it is one of my pet hates, which is way I didn’t get why Igraine didn’t just tell him to naff off when she could. I blame the weight-loss-beautifying cave. But he did improve, rather quickly actually, one moment he was cruel and mocking the next a sweet heart, the transistion for me was far too quick.
But, you don’t get many fantasy erotica’s, and I did enjoy this one, it had a plot, it wasn’t particuarly original or complicated but it got the story moving on. It also wasn’t over saturated with repeatative sex scenes, there were a lot of them this is an erotic book after all and they were hot, Deborah Court writes the heat really well but I didn’t feel I was drowning in them.
Much like LOTR though, the last part of the book seemed to have a lot of false endings and I felt that it dragged a bit, there was a point where I thought it would have been a nice place to end, but something else happened to keep it going and it seemed a little unnecessary.
Over all though I did enjoy this book and I would read the next one, it was sexy full of adventure and more importantly sexy elves.
Still undecided about the cave though!

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?
