Overview

An Infamous Beauty. A Daring Warrior. . .

For five years, Sapphire has been the king of Sari's most treasured concubine. Independent at last, she refuses to put herself in anyone's control again. But now another's meddling has led her into the path of proud, arrogant Wulfric, Crown Prince of the rival kingdom of D'Ashier. . .a man who is dangerous to her in every way.

And A Seduction That Could Destroy Them Both

The daughter of Wulfric's fiercest opponent, Sapphire is a prized warrior in her own right and highly skilled in the sensual arts--in short, Wulfric's perfect match. A lasting union is unthinkable, but the bargain they strike--to spend one night together, and then part--proves impossible in the face of a desire powerful enough to bring two countries to the brink of war, and two hearts to the point of surrender. . .

For those readers who love steamy romance with their futuristic fantasy, Livia Dare's IN THE FLESH (Book #1 of the Sapphire trilogy) with Kensington Zebra (June 2 '09) is the book for you! In the desert land of Sari, the beautiful Sapphire has been the beloved favorite concubine of its king for five years. However, the queen is jealous of his affections and sends Sapphire from the palace in hopes of enticing the king to beget her with an heir. Luckily, Sapphire's banishment includes her own palatial home and fourteen mästares to service her every need. One of the mästares comes to her gravely wounded, and she discovers he is actually the captured Crown Prince Wulfric of the enemy desert nation of D'Ashier. It is instant lust at first sight for both of them! Wulf recovers from his injuries and even though he is Sapphire's slave, he is determined to seduce her. Sapphire is equally determined to stay away from Wulf, despite their great attraction, since she knows she could never have a long-lasting relationship with an enemy of Sari--her father is the General of the Sarian Army. Wulf and Sapphire make a bargain for one night of passion before she sets him free. However, after their incendiary evening, Wulf teleports Sapphire to his palace in D'Ashier against her will where he treats her as his favored concubine. Will Wulf realize the true treasure he has in the captive Sapphire, and make her his legal mate? And what about their warring homelands? Sylvia Day aka Livia Dare is a natural born romance author with great lovers and thrilling plots in any time period. Add her to your favorites in futuristic/fantasy romance!

I like the authors other books and i really wanted to like this one too. But for whatever reason, i just could not get into it. I liked the idea behind the story but to me it was a boring read an the steamy scenes were so bland. I found myself skipping over the scences entirely.
