Of course Silvian does everything he can to "cure" Jovari, including a lot of training and practice. I liked Bereshti, and I really liked everything about his household. This was a sweet, entertaining, and hot story. Apr 11, Hpstrangelove rated it liked it Shelves: m-m , mp3 , calibre. This book didn't really click for me; I was interested in the characters so I finished it, but it was hard to get through.
I can't say exactly why. I think there were just too many sex scenes that didn't add anything to the story. They were hot, but I found myself wishing they would 'hurry up' and get it over with so I could find out what was going to happen with character X or Y.

There was a scene in the kitchen that I found more interesting than some of the sex scenes. Sep 30, Jo rated it it was ok Shelves: decorations , dismal. I snagged this book during the swap meet at Y con. The girl selling it warned me that the book had "too much sex in it. I wondered. No way. I am one of those people who un-ironically likes the fact that The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty is nothing but page after page of sex.
There was no way I wouldn't love this book if that was her complaint. Having finished the book, I think what she meant to warn me about was that the book was sex Literally nothing else. The b I snagged this book during the swap meet at Y con. The back cover, which contains a dismal summary, hints that the main character may be Jovari, a young man with a conflicted and interesting past who allowed himself to be sold to save his younger brother from the same fate. Being from a culture where concubines are not normal, Jovari is reluctant to embrace his new life, something that drives Silvian, the favored concubine of Lord Bereshti's zenanem harem , crazy.
Silvian has embraced every aspect of his life and is determined that the members of his zenanem be happy and content, including reluctant Jovari. This plot alone should have been interesting and unique enough to carry the story. The struggle of two people at fundamental odds with each other and the clash of cultures between the way Jovari sees the world and Silvian sees the world would have been interesting -- if instead we weren't treated to a few whiny temper tantrums that clear up as soon as sex is applied.
Stunningly so. Schreiber knows her English language and commands it wonderfully! Even more frustrating are the hints of depth to the story. For example, there's a scene where Silvian goes to the kitchen and is insulted by the kitchen boy for the fact that he drinks chamthi -- a tea that keeps him from developing body hair or otherwise maturing out of adolescence. Silvian exacts his revenge in a beautiful scene that clearly highlights the relationship between the concubines and the rest of the household. It's this hint of depth -otherwise absent in the story - that makes this book so ungodly frustrating.
I can't really carry on too much longer without continuing to reiterate how frustrating this book is. What few plot points appear are waved in as if the author went down a checklist and said "by this page, this will happen" instead of taking the time to let the story unfold organically, giving us a more realistic love story than the one we got. This was overwhelmingly a major disappointment.
I'll be selling this book at the next swap meet I attend, hopefully with a better warning than the one I received. Good writing, poor plot, and too much sex with too little substance behind it. From the girl that likes Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, that's saying something, and the saying's not very good. Nov 11, Lily rated it liked it Shelves: read-in It was ok. Wished it was longer. Liked the characters. Very safe choice. Sep 02, Vall rated it it was ok. The story line was good.

Horrible publishing company. I am done.
A few months delay, O. My Response——————————. I do apologize for you feeling this way. Unfortunately, SLPG is not a big enough company that any staff members are full time. Every single one of us, including the editors and the authors, has a full time job outside of the company. It is disheartening to us to hear that even though we spend what time we can putting these things together that you would feel the need to belittle our efforts when we are sincerely trying our best.
It saddens me that you will not be patronizing out business again, however that is your perogative and I can not say that I blame you if your reasoning is as you say. I do hope you find what you are looking for with someone else and I wish you well. This is all I will ever say or post on the subject of why it takes so long for us to release a novel. Here is the Synopsis:. Who knew working in a coffee shop was so dangerous? Burned out after a crash and burn relationship, Liam avoided men except for one-night stands when his needs had to be met. Whitney, his latest one-night stand, seemed to want more.
Liam discovered that Whitney was willing to go to great lengths to get what he wanted, but Liam was just as determined to get Whitney out of his life and his shop before he fell for him. Still not convinced? Read the First Chapt er here. And even through the shards of our fragmented relationship, dangers are always present. My kind were being murdered, by whom, I did not know. And my new masters, the clandestine House of Assassins would not leave me be.
Membership is not optional so I can never escape them. But through it all, I listen to my father, my mentor, and his true words, Master your Flame, and you master your world.

Now I just have to live that long to do that. We got Cake on Kobo! I was a right unholy bastard. Eighteen months ago, I was a fat, nasty, legally blind, computer programmer who decided to try his chubby hand at industrial espionage. I caught the attention of a Vampire Assassin, Marcus. He was just supposed to kill me; but he wanted me instead.
I became his toy for a year. During which time he reshaped my body; fixed my vision and broke me psychologically into three pieces.
Lord Bereshti's Concubines
On the anniversary of my kidnapping, he gave me the choice to become an equal or remain a toy. Little did we know that he would never be my equal. Then we start to find out why there are no Blue bloods left in the Vampire world. A couple of people have said they want apparel which is not something I really took seriously.
