This is my first experience with reading an erotic fantasy, and I was a little hesitant as to whether I would enjoy it. At first, I found it a bit hard to get into...but after the first couple chapters, it was as though I was sucked in. I actually read it twice before reviewing it because I liked it so much! The book is very well written, and definitely left some cliffhangers for the second book.
Loves and Beloveds has just the right amount of erotic events to make it tasteful but not trashy. The plot is very interesting, and intertwined with sex in a way that makes it more of a regular fantasy book than straight erotica.
The book was easy to read once I was able to get into the story. I could have read it in one day if I had had enough time. I definitely recommend it to others looking for well written erotic stories.
