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! ♥

Great 4 Star Review for Second Nature on Readers’ Favorite!
Hi, readers! Just wanted to let you know that I stumbled across this great review for Second Nature, book one of the Blood at First Sight Series, on Readers’ Favorite! So, thank you, Michelle! 🙂
Here is the review if you’d like to check it out…
Blood At First Sight Book 1
by Marie Lavender
Fiction – Paranormal
Reviewed on 10/10/2015
Reviewed by Michelle Randall for Readers’ Favorite
Alec is not your ordinary drop-dead handsome man, he is a vampire, and he smells the most amazing blood he has ever met. He is looking for it when he finds it at a festival. Desiree is a young woman with a broken heart and soul. She has been unlucky in love, but she thinks she is okay. Alec has to know more about her, he wants to know her, not just have a taste of her blood, which is something he has never done. Desiree is stronger than she thinks and her mind is even stronger; she is able to resist the normal vampire mind thoughts. Alec knows there is something special about her, but it also puts her in danger. He takes a bold step and kidnaps her, taking her to his house. Second Nature follows Alec and Desiree as she begins to learn about Alec and trust him. Along the way, they find something more than they ever thought possible, but they both know in reality it can never work, right? A human and a vampire? Author Marie Lavender gives us a different look into vampire-human relationships.
Second Nature: Blood At First Sight Book 1 by author Marie Lavender is not your typical vampire novel. Alec is a lone vampire, he does not live in a group, or family. Vampires do not mix with humans at all, other than to take the amounts of blood they need, but only that much. So when Alec is taken with Desiree, this is something he is completely unprepared for and he has no idea how to handle it. Desiree has no idea vampires exist, but takes the news relatively well. Given her unlucky past with her ex-husband, she has a hard time trusting Alec, but he works to win her trust. In reality this is much more than a romance novel, it is the story of Alec and Desiree, and the fact that they are human and vampire is secondary. Anyone who enjoys a good romance should read this one; it is an emotional read!

Thoughtful, 5 Star Review for Second Nature!
A new review for Second Nature!
As the author notes about the protagonist – a vampire, “All he’d ever hoped for, when you looked past the bitterness of fate, was acceptance. He had foolishly wanted to be accepted despite his supernatural flaws. And that just wasn’t possible.” That ironically is true for the very genre of romance in the sense that window of acceptance of deviations is rather slim…

A Short and Sweet Review for UYR!
Hi, readers! Just wanted to pop in and let you know about this cool review I discovered on Amazon for Upon Your Return, book one of the Heiresses in Love Series. Thank you, Crystal, for your kind words! 🙂
A Fiery Adventure., July 9, 2015
This review is from: Upon Your Return (Kindle Edition)
A fiery adventure of unmistaken love. Never have I read such poignant literature. This author is my idol. I myself write historical romance, I can never hope to be as wonderful as she. This book will hold you captive and take you on a whirlwind of romance from the very first intriguing page to the very last. Well written and well executed. I cannot brag enough about this book.

Awesome 5 Star Review for SECOND NATURE!
I’d just like to thank the mysterious “B.B” for this wonderful review of Second Nature that I just found on Amazon! Thank you for reading book one of the Blood at First Sight Series! 🙂
Despite their obvious species difference, vampire and human, Alec and Desiree are drawn to each other. There’s just something about Desiree Edwards that drives Alec mad….in the good sort of way. Her blood calls to him, her scent drives him wild. Why does this human affect him…
