3 Stars


Released: July 3, 2012
Series: Forgotten Goddesses #3
Published by Sourcebooks Casablanca
Pages: 320
Format: ARC

Amity, the almost forgotten Etruscan Goddess of Health has little power left, but with what little remains she works as an aesthetist. But Charun the god of the Underworld has targeted her next and has started to appear in her dreams, especially when she starts being stalked by a demon. But, is it coincidence when Remy and Rom the lovers she took the night before kill the demon, or are they more then they seem?

I need to cool down a bit after reading this, there is no question that this was a hot read! Full or gorgeous angsty lucani (werewolves) and a goddess making the filling in a very delicious sandwich. The sex was well written, hot and dirty, the literally made their woman pass out! Although sometimes the lust did feel a little out of place, even in tense life and death situations they seemed to be thinking about sex.

Although I enjoyed this book, I do sometimes feel I am getting lost in all the names, events and peoples in it. Ms Julian has built up a rich world and I think it helps if you have read a few more of her other books so you can get a feel of her world and her background characters.

Overall I did enjoy this book, I like the idea of the fading godesses and I look forward to reading the next in the series.

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?
