Hi, readers! Yesterday I discovered these cool reviews for my books…
Blood Instincts, a paranormal romance/urban fantasy (with a slightly futuristic angle)
The story revolves around Oliver, a vampire, and Myah, whose father was a vampire and whose mother was human. They were not supposed to be able to have children, so Myah is special. Myah does not know her heritage , and the story revolves around Oliver’s attempt to introduce her to the life of an “other.”
The book was easy to read, interesting, and enjoyable. The plot moved quickly. The romantic scenes were detailed and sensuous. The author led me to care about Myah. I found myself feeling rather protective of her and becoming concerned whenever I suspected that any other creature – human or otherwise – might harm her.
I will confess that I do not often read paranormal romance. I was drawn to the book because I have enjoyed dome of the author’s other work. However, I found Blood Instincts to be enjoyable and well-worth a read.
Heiresses in Love Trilogy, a historical romance boxed set (covers the entire Heiresses in Love Series)
Chloe doesn’t tell the whole truth to a man she loves.
Adrienne…will she fight for love or fall?
All of these stories were well written by a great author. The reader will be gripped to the pages waiting to find out what happens. Great word building and great characters you want to see good things happen to.
Wow! Thanks, David and Barbara, for your kind comments! ♥
