Publisher's Summary

Dear Listeners,

Some of you may remember this story as Sapphire's Worth. Written in 2004, a few brief excerpts were posted on my website, and they were never forgotten - I've been receiving email about Sapphire and Wulf ever since!

In the Flesh was my second completed novel, and although I have written many more since then, this Arabian Nights tale of seduction, power, and ultimate surrender holds a special place in my heart. Wulfric remains one of my favorite heroes. I hope he'll become one of yours as well!

With love,
Sylvia

A 'STAR WARS' TYPE ENJOYABLE EROTIC ROMANCE

Firstly, I must say that I'm a total Sylvia Day fan ANYTHING written by her is an auto download for me so perhaps my review may just be a wee bit biased.

Two realms at war on a distant planet - Sari and D'Ashier
Sapphire (aka Katie) is a strong and very capable woman trained in the art of combat as well as the sensual arts who's been the King of Sari's love and only favored concubine for 5 years but the Queen hates her and has had enough so she pensions her off and sends her to her own house with lots of handsome concubines of her own but the Queen has a dark hidden agenda.

One of the concubines is recently captured and tortured Prince Wulfric of D'Ashier a swoon-worthy handsome Alpha warrior who's sexy, arrogant, ruthless, intelligent, fearless and honourable and there's instant attraction with sizzling sexual chemistry as soon as they set eyes on each other. They quickly become obsessed with each other but it's a forbidden and dangerous game to play - they, and their families, are on opposite sides of the war but nothing can stop them from becoming lovers for just one night (yeah right like that's going to work out).

Each Chapter of this well written, entertaining, fast-paced, action-packed, erotic fantasy/romance is unpredictable and has got suspense, surprises, betrayal, humor, sex, lies, battles, lavish worldbuilding scenes, interesting characters and is emotionally gripping. As the lovers try to do the right thing and make the ultimate sacrifice they realise they just can't live without one-another and that leads to an intense love story.

Worth a credit? Ohhhh YES and although there is a HEA ending there are loose ends and this was meant to be the first book in a trilogy but I have been on SD's website and there's no mention of books 2 & 3 yet - so come on Ms Day please please please put me out of my misery and write the other 2.

My Musings

The narrator is very good but the story had too much sex without enough emotion intertwined. I realize some may enjoy one sexual scene after another but I like more substance. Happy reading/listening!

Sci-fi gladiator erotica - Firefly meets 300

For red hot romance and sci-if, I usually need to find them in two separate books. However, I hit the jackpot here. I very much like this tale of lovers from different waring realms. Some aspects read more like fantasy, like the harems and women dusted in gems and lounging about waiting to please. Other aspects fall into the sci-fi arena with healing and transport technology. It’s an odd mix of primitive (soldiers battle with swords rather than blasters) and advanced (politics and spy craft). But, occasionally odd works. This lightning in a bottle reminded me of Firefly and its blend of sci-fi and the Wild West. Wulfric felt like Leonidas in 300. Yes, I agree with other comments, that the story seems to need more filling out. Could have used more world-building and side-character development. The storyline was a bit herky jerky ... two thirds through the book the setting expands into space ... didn’t see that coming at all (because, again, story needed fleshing out). But, as one of the author’s first books, I easily forgave any short comings. I enjoy my males alpha and my females fierce. A lot of alpha male romances are lacking the strong female side. This story managed to give me exactly the type of female mc I love: a smart, sexy, warrior who can be feminine and feeling at the same time.

interesting

This book is interesting and pretty good. The only reason I gave it five stars as I wish the plot was more developed. It's not a deal breaker and worth the credit.

A Good Romantic Fantasy

A good listen and worth the time. "Dick" and "Pussy" were a bit overused. But the storyline was good. I would recommend it, everyone. Audible Escapes allows you to explore outside your traditional love story, so if you have it, you should explore.

Good

Loved the story but I felt like it ended abruptly. Like a sequel is needed.
