“A well-written story with enough variety in the sexual situations to satisfy just about any reader. The characters are complex and intriguing and the leading man is the sexiest one this reader has seen in a long time! The author has cleverly set the stage for at least two sequels in the Lords of Satyr series and based on this book, they will be something to look forward to. Readers who like a little non-vanilla sex and a lot of paranormal elements with their romance will not be disappointed.
—Romantic Times Book Reviews (August 2007 issue)

“I really didn’t want this book to end, and when I finished I knew that this book would stay with me for a while. This is one you don’t want to miss.”
—Julianne, TwoLips Reviews
“The sexual aspects of this book are highly erotic, and kept me spellbound and wanting more. . .keeps hold of your heart and mind. NICHOLAS is a definite Joyfully Reviewed Recommended Read for me.”
—Amelia, Joyfully Reviewed
“Both Nicholas and Jane are well-matched, though it took a delicious tension-filled while for them to figure it out. There is a villainess to surpass all villains, and more supporting villains that fit into the story neatly. Although the plot was interesting, complete with a satisfying climactic ending, the characters are what brought the story to life. It was well-paced—it’s engrossing and easy to read in one sitting. . .the sex is knock-out hot . . . sure to please any erotica fan.”
—Just Erotic Romance Reviews (“O”, their highest rating for hotness)
“Elizabeth Amber’s NICHOLAS: THE LORDS OF SATYR has taken a place on my top ten favorite erotic books list.. . . a double thumbs up.”

“I have to admit, Nicholas left me wanting—wanting the next book in this wonderful new series, that is! . . . If you enjoy Paranormal Fantasy Romances set in a Historical period, then you will definitely want to pick up a copy of this one very soon!
—Jennifer Ray, CK2S Kwips & Kritiques/Wild On Books
“I couldn’t put this book down until I finished every delightfully wicked page! I loved the mythological beings that were depicted throughout this book and the spell that Ms. Amber seems to weave through each page so that you felt like you were really there watching as each scene played out. The characters are genuinely memorable – even the ones you dislike prove to be unforgettable . . . Beautifully written Ms. Amber!
—Chrissy Dionne, Romance Junkies
“. . .This is a really hot relationship with enough eroticism to satisfy the erotica lovers including multiple partners. It is a plus that there is a strong storyline with a very nasty villainess—one of the worst that this reader has come upon. NICHOLAS: THE LORDS OF SATYR is the first book in this series by Ms. Amber. There is much world building and it will surely be embellished in further books as each of the brothers will have their own story. This is a page turner from start to finish! Turn on the air conditioner or fan and enjoy!”
—Fallen Angel Reviews
“…a steamy, hot tale that scorches the pages. Her imagination skyrockets in this energizing story. I am anxious to read Raine’s and Lyon’s tales.”
—Coffee Time Romance
“Prepare to be enraptured . . . Ignited by sensuous characters, the erotic sexuality sears each page, fanning the flames of a highly intense plot.”
—Pamela, Romance at Heart Magazine
“When I first start reading Elizabeth Amber’s book NICHOLAS, I was not sure about it. As I read onwards mind started to change and I started wanting to keep reading. I have never read a book like this before. Mrs. Amber’s writing takes hold of you and immerses you into her wonderful world of fairies and mythological characters. Wonderfully written Elizabeth and I look forward to reading more of your wonderful books.”
NICHOLAS is featured in Publishers Weekly
“Kensington’s LaFehr says that paranormal erotic stories are “really, really popular; it’s another world, and the rules of otherworldly societies are completely different—you don’t have to worry about safe sex!” One of her favorite titles for this fall is NICHOLAS: THE LORDS OF SATYR, the first in a trilogy by Elizabeth Amber. “What I am actually most excited about is that Amber combines historical and paranormal elements, setting a book in 18th-century Tuscany starring satyr lords with wild, wild rituals.”
