Gena Showalter is always my go to author. Her books always have lots of passion, a good storyline and are at times laugh out loud funny. This book is actually the 2nd book in one of her series but I did not know that when I got this book. I enjoyed this book but I do not think it is one of her bests. It kept my attention and I read it straight through in one day but I wish it would have been a little more fast paced. At times the storyline got too slow. This book is not a dramatic story but it is light and fun. Still I would recommend it.
Storyline: When Santa Fe antique dealer Julie Anderson was curiously drawn to purchase a battered jewelry box, she never expected it to contain her own personal love slave. Especially not tall, dark and sinfully handsome Tristan-a man hard to resist, and determined to fulfill her every desire.
Though Tristan was a rogue of the battlefield and the boudoir, making love with Julia was like nothing he'd ever known. Yet revealing his true heart would break the centuries-old spell and separate them forever. And Tristan would do anything to go on loving Julia. . .even remain a slave through all eternity. . .
Overall: The story has a genie in a bottle like theme only in this version the genie is male, lives in an antique box, and does not grant wishes but gives pleasure. I really liked both the leading characters, Julia was funny, and Tristan was loveable without being too intense. I have to say I did not really like the cover of the book.
