"Not your (grand)mother's fairytale... Rhiannon Kinsley's life goes from boring to downright crazy when a freak lightning bolt strikes her laptop. To make matters even more bizarre, strange words and symbols flash across the computer screen and she hears a mysterious voice. Time to call the men in white coats! Then Cerne Silverwing, an intriguingly sexy man, appears. He insists she’s a faerie princess whose fate will determine his own. What a crock! Now she knows who really needs those white coats.
With the Dark Faerie forces threatening his kingdom, Cerne kidnaps Rhiannon and brings her to Fey, a land where magic knows no bounds. He's performing a duty to save his kingdom and nothing more—a duty that will bring him his wings and the strengthened magic that comes with them. If he doesn’t unite with the princess as her consort, those wings will never grow. But this princess grew up in the land of laptops and instant messages, and she’s convinced they're both crazy. Despite their differences, the two are thrust together to defeat the whip-wielding Dark Faerie Queen before she takes over the kingdom. Passion and peril aside, will Rhiannon and Cerne discover their true destiny?" ~From Goodreads
Wings of Desire was sexy trip to a fantasy White Lands of the Fey. These faeries aren't your men in tights, these are tall, build like a god and well, well hung. Nothing nancy about these boys! I loved Skye's ability to create such a fresh new kind of world with your Light Faeries and Dark Faeries, both true to their name. I loved that she used Oberon and Titania in the book, great little homage to Shakespeare. This story was active, fast pace and sexy - and when I say sexy I mean erotic romance sexy, lots of yummy tension and a great plot but man, yes, Sexy!
The plot was so entertaining! I loved Rhiannon's blatant disbelief and denial, it was fun to read - and seriously had that happened to me I would have believed it was a dream as well. Well until it become obviously real. I loved the fact that Rhiannon and Cerne couldn't fight their attraction very well and kept going at each other like bunnies, with the exception that they couldn't consummate their union before Beltane. But that sure didn't stop them from enjoying each other. ;) I loved The Dark Faerie Queen Korrigan, deliciously evil, loved to hate her - she made sure there was enough external threat to keep the plot moving and keeping the story interesting.
I loved Cerne! What can I say, he's built, knowledgeable in the bedroom and seductive sexy, what's not to love! ;) He made a great match for Rhiannon who was a virgin and flat out didn't believe faeries excited, let alone that she was the faerie Princess destined to rule with Cerne at her side. I did really enjoy reading Rhiannon, she was fun, sassy and witty, not much more you can ask for a romance heroine!
The romance was Hot! These two couldn't keep their minds or paws for that matter off each other - plus there was the added bonus of all the sexual tension and Rhiannon belief they were in a dream so she could pretty much indulge! This is not erotica though, even though the sex is hot and frequent, there is an awesome plot and threat that drives the story forward and builds the characters... that said. It's so yummy!
I'm highly recommending this! This is the first faeries story that I've actually loved and found sexy! Feel free to recommend me some more this! ;D
