Summary from Goodreads:
Cursed as an infant with a lack of physical and emotional gravity, Prince Efrosin can’t keep his feet on the ground or his head out of the clouds. Laughing his way through life, he’s never been weighed down by love and lust.
Then one fateful day, his tenuous tie to the earth is severed and he blows away on the wind. He’s rescued by Dmitri, a handsome young woodsman who suffers from a mysterious curse of his own, and the two strangers are irresistibly drawn together. Experiencing sex and love for the first time, they dive into a delightfully sensual and passionate affair.
But the evil witch who cursed them is planning her ultimate revenge. Efrosin and Dmitri must fight to find their fairy tale ending and live happily ever after.
“This gravity everyone loves so well is rather useless.”
This was cute, funny and steamy. Lately my e-books have been very naughty and I love that, very much! This fairy tale was all kinds of absurd but, well, it’s a tale, right? First of all it has a happily ever after ending which I love. Then it has two wonderful main characters, one a prince and the other a woodcutter. It has all the elements to a wonderful tale of new meetings, love and….SEX, lots and lots of incredible sex.
An evil witch has cursed Prince Efrosin on the day of his christening. He has no weight and he doesn’t suffer from gravity. This curse also affects his personality: he is shallow and doesn’t really feel anything but joy even if the things being told to him aren’t happy at all. On the day of his 18th birthday he convinced Geoffrey to take him, kite-style, to take a look around. It is extremely dangerous since the wind can take him easily away to certain death.
“Well, I am very happy to be alive. It would be awfully dreary to be dead.”
Guess what? It happens and our weightless Prince flies away but, luckily, he doesn’t die but end up stuck on a tree only to be found by our woodcutter, Dmitri who at first thought he was seeing an angel falling from the sky. Their meeting is meant to be, fate wants it and I wanted it. At first it was purely physical. Dmitri has been by himself due to his curse that binds him to his land, and Efrosin hasn’t been with anyone ever because nobody has a “weight” on him. Not until Dmitri comes in a rocks his world. Oh my goodness, did they have fun in that cabin in the woods! It was hot beyond measure, one hot scene after the other.
“As your prince, I command you, take me into your home and defile me.”
Being with Dmitri feels different; Efrosin feels things when he is with him, he also feels gravity. This is a thing it hadn’t happened before, not ever, for anyone and Efrosin doesn’t want this to end.
Besides, what on earth could be more romantic than being taken in a hard and desperate manner by my rescuing prince?
I know I didn’t want it to end. This book or I should say short story was lovely. I liked it a lot and it left me wanting for more. The epilogue was excellent, hilarious and absurd, like everything else. Can’t wait to read the other fairy tales in this series.
Observing the sky turning the color of the knight’s bruises after a tournament.
Isn’t this the most beautiful way to describe the sunset?
Do I recommend it? Yes, it is HOT.
