Dee Carey's The Fox and the Swan is a Hit!


The Fox and the Swan

A. Dee Carey has spun a magical web that makes one suspend reality and cheer her morphed characters on. Although this is not the type of genre I personally read, I found myself swept up in the storyline that was peopled with strong characters that formed a complete population of essential beings—not one too many and not one too few.

The Fox and the Swan is a story where the step-mother truly is a witch. The plot, the arranged marriage of a young girl to a curmudgeon to save her family, is one that is tried and true but definitely has a different twist with sorcery and religion becoming compatible.

The transition of humans to animals was so believable one never lost faith in the story and I had to read it to its conclusion in a short time. A. Dee Carey keeps you wondering about the outcome all the way through. The setting in Scotland rings so true you are visually whipped across the sea and live the Highland life while the story unfolds. Recollections of Narnia crept into my mind as I was reading as it certainly carried that flavor of magic and the struggle between good and evil.

Whether you read fantasy or not, I recommend The Fox and the Swan as a good love story that plays out blending fantasy and reality that makes you believe in it and its characters.

The Christmas King by Lisa Renee Jones Gets Reviewer Approval!

Christmas King by Lisa Renee Jones

Erotic Christmas Fantasy
ISBN:1-4199-0482-5
Reviewed by Talia Ricci
http://www.ellorascave.com/productpage.asp?ISBN=1-4199-0482-5



Once again, Lisa Renee Jones has penned a wonderfully sexy and enjoyable book in Christmas King. I loved the tenderness and love shown to Alexis by Alcron, as well as the total trust Alexis places in Alcron to keep her safe. This was just an all-around pleasing read and I look forward to more books from Ms. Jones.

Long Hard Winter by Rachel Carrington Gets 5 Stars!

Title: Long Hard Winter
Author: Rachel Carrington
Publisher: Ellora’s Cave Publishing
Publisher URL: www.ellorascave.com
ISBN: 1-4199-0462-0
Reviewer: Oleta M Blaylock
Rating: 5 Stars
Heat level: O

Long Hard Winter is such a wonderful story that it ended long before I was ready. Ms. Carrington continues to prove that she is an outstanding writer with this current holiday Quickie. Her characters are well-rounded imperfection. They have flaws and fears that make you want to hold them until everything is all right again. She also writes some of the steamiest love scenes on the market today. I was ready for a cold shower by the time I finished this story. Keane and Allyn play off each other’s passions so very well. They need each other to be the whole well rounded people that they should be. This is a great holiday story that conveys the best of the holiday season.

Rachel Carrington's Nights in Black Satin scores high!

Nights in Black Satin continues the trend of well written "light" witch stories. Noelle may not be the greatest witch of the coven but is a hard working one with a determined air. Jacob is the kind of alpha male de facto leader of the family, but bears his tasks well. Noelle and Jacob play off each other splendidly and their conversations make the book. While their connection seemed odd at first, it quickly builds to attraction and enduring love. Noelle and Jacob are straight forward and believable, and I instantly empathized with them. Neither gave up their family responsibilities while being honest and open about their desire. Every little girl who watched Disney's Sleeping Beauty will love Noelle's aunts, and while the "bad" witch is pesky, I kept waiting for her to say “Noelle, Noelle, Noelle” in a Jan Brady whine. The sex is wonderful and super hot. Jacob is an unbelievable lover, and this is a great part of the book. The open conclusion makes me hope the sequel to Nights in Black Satin will come soon.

Delilah Devlin's Silent Knight Makes for a Steamy Read!

SILENT KNIGHT - Delilah Devlin
Ellora's Cave - www.ellorascave.com
ISBN: 1-4199-0463-9
December 2005
Erotic Paranormal Romance - Quickie
Rated E-rotic


Magnus and Noelle fit together like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, each completing the other. Noelle is a very caring and giving person. She stands firm in her belief that everything will turn out fine in the end. She knows her weaknesses and finds strength in her faith to help her through tough times. Magnus is a strong individual who has grown weary from his battles with evil. He cannot imagine fighting again and would rather end his existence than face a battle he is convinced he cannot win. Noelle is the perfect foil for him. The sexual attraction between the two is instant and hot but the connection they share goes much deeper than mere attraction.

SILENT KNIGHT is a story that flows seamlessly from beginning to end. Don’t miss this sensual holiday treat.

Rachel Carrington's With Love from Sam is winning reviewers' hearts!

Joyfully Reviewed calls it “by turns heartbreaking, funny, emotional, and romantic. Ms. Carrington superbly handles the emotional intensity such a loss brings. She crafts a wonderful love story of two people finding their way out of loss to find their way back to each other. With the addition of the paranormal ghost twist, With Love From Sam is most definitely a story which should not be missed.”

“If only mere words could express the emotional magnitude of this book. From the first pages this reader was overwhelmed and ingratiated at the same time. The feelings this book evokes are raw and powerful, yet divinely beautiful. The characters are crisp and alive – fleshed-out and real. The readers will become the story, needing to stay within its commanding flow, says Love Romances’ reviewer, Janalee Ruschhaupt.

Winning Love Romances’ Golden Rose Award for Reviewer’s Choice, With Love from Sam has been called “a story of healing and learning how to deal with grief and move on. There are sad moments that may bring a tear to your eye, but the story focuses on Karyn and Jace's love for one another, which is tested to the limits. With well-developed characters dealing with emotional ups and downs, readers will find it hard to put down. The secondary characters, including the town gossip and one particular feisty unearthly being, who add humor, help move the story along. It's a wonderful story of how true love can survive the worst of times,” by Romance Reviews Today.

Kate Steele's Orb of Atrios Gets Another Rave Review!

Kate Steele's The Orb of Atrios was a great read that kept me enthralled from beginning to end. The characters were interesting, three-dimensional and easy to relate to. Lea's especially endeared herself to me because when she found herself in a strange land with foreign customs and more, she was still able to handle herself with remarkable aplomb. I can only hope that I would be able to react similarly if I found myself in that kind of situation.

Dare was a very masculine, extremely sexy hero that set my heart racing. Sex between Lea and him was scorchingly hot. If Dare's sexual prowess is any indication, more women will want to visit Atrios , sooner rather than later.

The Orb of Atrios was a delightful read by Kate Steele and the perfect way to wile away a few hours. I can'twait to read Ms. Steele's next offering.

Anisa Damien Keeps Winning with Reviews!

JINGLE MY BELL – A. Damien, A. Brooks, M. Reed, R. Monet
Liquid Silver Books –
www.liquidsilverbooks.com
ISBN: 1-59578-172-2
December 2005
Erotic Holiday Romance Anthology


Upon a Midnight Clear - Anisa Damien
Contemporary Romance

Drea Michaels has wanted Carter James from the day they met two years ago. But Carter never mixes friendship and sex -- it’s one of his hard and fast rules. Unfortunately, while Drea values Carter’s friendship, she’s dying for the man’s body. Tired of watching Drea pine for Carter, Drea’s best friend, Liz, dares her to seduce him before Christmas. Will Drea take the dare and try to seduce Carter? Will she succeed and, if she does, will that spell the end of their friendship?



Carter James is dying of unrequited lust. He wants Drea more than he wants his next breath. But she deserves better than to be nothing more than a sex partner, and Carter knows he’s not the man to give her what she wants. But when Drea pulls out all the stops, will Carter be able to resist?



The sex between Drea and Carter is electrifying, but their emotions are what make this a great story. The characters are well-developed, though Carter’s hot and cold treatment of Drea did make me want to smack him a few times. Sinfully erotic, Upon a Midnight Clear is a romantic and sexy read for the holiday season.



With four tales of passion, romance, and the power of love, JINGLE MY BELL is a delightful anthology to help while away a few hours between opening the presents and cleaning up the mess. Happy holidays, and treat yourself to a little naughty spice this Christmas.

Hold on to your hats because it's gonna be a rough but satisfying ride when you open HERRARA'S TEMPTATION. Larisa is independent and beautiful with a hard outer shell that hides a softer side.

If he had been there maybe things would have turned out differently. Nicolas is sex on two legs. He's got a body to die for and
a mouth that....mmm... but I digress. Nicolas hasn't felt strongly for a woman since his wife died, but the first time he met Larisa he was shaken to the core. Everything about her called out to him. When these two finally give in to the attraction sizzling between them it's like a fire burning out of control.

If you're looking for something that will heat up those cold winter nights, then curl up with Anisa Damien's HERRARA'S TEMPTATION.

Kate's Steele wins with another reivew!

Kate Steele has written a very hot, sensual short story about two very different people who have to succumb to their fate and realise that the Mother Goddess knows what’s best. She has written two very wonderful characters that will have the reader sitting on the edge of her seat, wondering if these two will finally give in. The sexual tension sizzles throughout the pages and the love scenes are hot, sensuous and romantic. Ms. Steele certainly knows how to turn up the heat with loves scenes that will melt the monitor. Both of these star struck lovers fall very hard. Though a short story, Ms Steele packs a powerful punch that will have the reader hanging onto every page. Not a word is wasted and the reader is kept in suspense until the very end. This reviewer enjoyed this story very much although it kept her squirming in her seat. It remains to be seen if any more stories will be written about this world she has created, maybe about Galatin?

Sylvia Day gets another round of applause from reviewers!

Title: White Hot Holidays: Wish List
Author: Sylvia Day
Publisher: Ellora’s Cave Publishing
Publisher URL: www.ellorascave.com
ISBN: 1-4199-0446-9
Reviewer: Francesca Hayne
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Heat level: H

Everything about Nicolas James draws Stephanie Martin to him, like a moth to a flame. He’s intelligent, extremely good-looking, and much too sexy for his own good. All of this leads Steph to one conclusion: Good Old Nick is a playboy to the extreme and much too licentious to risk her heart on. She can fantasize about him, but refuses to get physically involved.However, when Nick draws her name for the office Christmas pool, then unwittingly finds her delightfully naughty wish list of sexual things she’d like him to do, Steph is clueless as to her predicament. Looks like less than saintly Nick is planning to fulfill her wishes in every delicious way possible.

Ms. Day has written a wickedly arousing tale with Wish List, which is a part of the While Hot Holiday collection from Ellora’s Cave. I found myself completely captivated by the intensely impassioned scenes between Nick and Steph. Steph can’t help but become hopelessly drawn into the sexual desire Nick weaves around her. She fights the craving, but like all hot love stories, finds that some battles are worth losing. When Steph finally makes her choices, she goes in full force and treats the reader to sensual capitulation.

I really loved Nick. He pushes for what he wants and isn’t willing to allow a simple surrender to occur. Sexually, I found myself getting wrapped up in their chemistry. Due to their history of working together, I could sense more than the sexual relationship between Steph and Nick, which made their growing love story both a believable as well as a pleasurable read.

Emma's Bruce Cady Gets Rave Reviews

CADY - Emma Bruce
The Lusty Zilosecs, Volume 2
Venus Press - www.venuspress.com
ISBN: N/A
November 2005
Erotic Paranormal Romance - Short Story
Rating: Aphrodite (Moderately Erotic)

Present Day

Librarian Cady Badman wants a man, and she wants one now. Of course the man she wants just might be gay. Surely not, though. I mean, they've gone out on several dates and he's held her hand and given her a chaste kiss goodnight. That doesn't mean he's gay...right? Well Cady decides tonight is the night to find out if David Janello is gay or not, because she plans to seduce him. She soon learns that David is definitely not gay, he’s something else entirely.

Accountant, pilot, surgeon...you name it, David Janello has been all of them and more. A Guardian and full Zilosec, David is sent to watch over Laura Badman but it's her sister--in-law, Cady that really catches David's eye. But no matter how much he'd like to take her to bed and make love to her until neither of them can move, he won't. But when he arrives to pick up Cady for their date, David may not have a choice. It seems that Cady has decided to make a move and when it comes right down to it, fighting the attraction gets harder and harder.

Will Cady succeed in her seduction or will David be able to withstand temptation?

Second in Emma Bruce's The Lusty Zilosecs series, readers get to meet Cady, Colt's twin sister. She's feisty, sexy and a librarian. How cool is that! David is a hunk no matter what occupation he's performing at the time of his assignment. Together these two blaze a trail of sensual heat that's hot enough to singe the fingertips. Readers of this series will catch a glimpse of Colt and Laura (see COLT) and see what has happened to them since their story.

Spicy and titillating, CADY makes a perfect stocking stuffer.

Sylvia Day's Latest Review

Title: Snaring the Huntress
Author: Sylvia Day
Publisher: Amber Quill Press
Publisher URL: www.amberquill.com
ISBN: 1-59279-454-8
Rating: 5 Stars
Heat level: O
Reviewer: Mireya Orsini
Star is the only judge of the Hunter species, and her latest assignment is not going to be easy at all. She is aiming at becoming a Supreme Court Judge, but to be able to do so, she has to keep her perfect record, earning the credits she needed to be able to apply. Now, despite her misgivings, she has to bring back a rogue Jacian ambassador who is approaching his heat cycle. To make matters worse, she has been having erotic dreams all week.

Sylvia Day’s Snaring the Huntress has to be, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most intense short erotic futuristic rides I’ve read recently. It is the sort of story that you HAVE to re-read again as soon as you are finished it. This is what you can certainly call a short story packed with a punch.

Very quick paced and quite short in length (at less than 30 pages) the reader can’t help but fall in love with both Star, who belongs to a renowned race of hunters and as such is a heroine of the kick ass variety, and with Roark, the rogue Jacian ambassador with ulterior motives. The main love scene literally forced me to take a break with its raw intensity and sensuality. I was fascinated with the whole set up and with the alien races Ms. Day introduces, and frankly, I would dare suggest to her to write something a little longer involving both races. They are nothing short of fascinating. If Snaring the Huntress is an example of Ms. Day’s writing ability … SIGN ME IN! This is one author I certainly intend to include in my autobuy list.

Misled by Sylvia Day

MISLED - Sylvia Day
Dangerous, Book 1
Ellora's Cave - www.ellorascave.com
ISBN: 1-4199-0385-3
October 2005
Erotic Paranormal Romance
Rated E-rotic

Derek and Sable are the perfect alpha male and female -- deadly dangerous to the world at large, but soft and giving to their mate. Ms. Day has created interesting, fun and very different worlds for our highly sexual vampire couple to play in. MISLED is dark and erotic with suspenseful twists, just like the main characters. Although there are lots of supporting cast, they add color to the story without overwhelming the reader. The sex scenes require availing yourself of something ice cold while following these alphas from one sector to another, chasing both bad guys and each other in their attempts to find out just who is being MISLED.

Kate's Steele's Orb of Atrios Gets Joyfully Reviewed!

The concept of the Orb captivated me as completely as it did Lea! With The Orb of Atrios Ms. Steele creates a fantastic tale that had me turning the pages well past midnight. Her characters are credible, likable and well drawn. The emotional connection between Dare and Lea is powerful and heartfelt. While Dare is a strong, dominant and sometimes arrogant man, he tries to be tender, loving and patient when dealing with his new mate. Lea is a soft, loving, yet feisty heroine and I found myself cheering on her small rebellions as she was finding her way in a new world. The sex was hot and delectable with the heat index increasing as I read. Because of Dare’s possessive nature, a ménage scene was an unexpected, yet thoroughly delicious, surprise. I’m looking forward to reading more about the land of Atrios, and hope to see Ran’s book soon. Kate Steele has scored a winner with The Orb of Atrios!

Short Story
Rated E-rotic

Manhattan, New York City, New York - Present Day All work and no play has made Kelly Marshall a very, very frustrated woman. So frustrated, in fact, that she has been having erotic dreams. A physical therapist, Kelly has been working and studying constantly in order to get into medical school. When a co-worker asks Kelly to join her for a night out, Kelly decides one night won’t hurt. That night she meets Mark, and gives in to her desires. After an incredibly passionate night, Kelly is determined to get back to her studies and leaves Mark’s apartment abruptly. Yet, try as she might, she can’t get Mark out of her mind. Is it possible she’d be able to carry on a relationship and still finish school? HURT SO GOOD is an enticing tale with likeable characters. After watching her mother’s numerous relationships, Kelly resolved to put a career ahead of having a relationship. She’s dedicated to her work to the exclusion of all else though, and she needs to cut loose and have a little fun in her life. Mark has just moved to Manhattan, and despite the fact that he isn’t looking for a relationship, after meeting Kelly, he realizes he wants one. At only sixty-nine pages, HURT SO GOOD is a short, but erotic tale, and definitely one I recommend.

Patricia Crossley Gets Four Lighthouses!

The author has a gift for painting word pictures in this novel. Whether in 1600 or 2400, Kari and Aiden’s situation is vividly described. The reader will feel like she is in that time period. I loved Kari’s devotion to her wolfhound Ben. The unlikely romance between the 20th century woman and the 24th century man in the 16th century could be cumbersome, but the author handles it well. Their love story is very good, although the shadowy villain from the future could be better described, I could never get a handle on just who he was. This is a really gripping time travel romance, and I recommend it to fans of that genre or to fans of historical romance.

Just Erotic Romance Loves Kate's Steele's Newest Release!

Title: The Orb of Atrios
Author: Kate Steele
Publisher: Ellora’s Cave Publishing
Publisher URL: www.ellorascave.com
ISBN: 1-4199-0428-0
Reviewer: Joy Harrington
Rating: 4/5 StarsHeat level: O

Lealah Redmond happens upon an orb while in an antique shop. By picking it up, she starts on a journey toward the man of her dreams, or at least the man that’s been haunting her erotic dreams lately. Darien Finn Mal, the leader of Atrios, has sent out the orb to find his perfect submissive mate as is the long held tradition among his clan. When she arrives via storm and lightning, is he prepared to deal with a modern Earth girl?The moral of this story is “Enjoy getting what you wish for.” Or is it “Be careful what you wish for?” Lealah tells her best friend exactly what she wants in a relationship at the beginning of the book and the rest of the story is about her dealing with the reality of receiving those wants and desires. I commend Ms. Steele’s handling of Lealah’s reactions to her new life in a realistic manner where other authors have asked their readers to suspend belief. Lealah demands time to process what’s happened and asks some hard questions before she accepts her new life. This aspect is usually glossed over very quickly in paranormal romances.

I have only one complaint about this story. There is a sex scene that develops from a minor subplot towards the very end that comes completely out of left field and feels gratuitous. I rather enjoyed the scene as a standalone but I didn’t feel it integrated well into the two main characters’ relationship development or the book as a whole. Overall, the chemistry between Lealah and Darien is very hot and leads to many smoldering sex scenes worthy of savoring again and again. The orb itself is actually my favorite part and reminds me of a similar orb from a non-romance sci-fi series. It has some surprises of its own. Its last act in this story is a doozy and convinces me that there will be a hot juicy sequel in the future.

Rating: 4 Stars
Heat level: H

Lea and Dare are a yummy couple. At first I thought she was going along with the “whole you’ve just been dumped in another dimension and destined to mate this guy” (OK, an incredibly hot guy) a little too calmly, but she reasonably dug in her heels and called a temporary halt to things until she felt comfortable with the arrangement. But how comfortable can you be when all you really want to do is have wild monkey sex with the guy who wants you just as much? From a masturbation scene to the very last love scene, the love making in this book is hot and varied. By the way, Dare has an equally delectable brother and couples sharing their love is not forbidden in this culture. There are some major cultural differences that have to be confronted and worked through, but this is a couple that is crazy for each other. There is also strong story support from a number of Dare’s family members-some of whom I expect to see in later stories. This is an enjoyable world I look forward to visiting again.

Reviewers love Sasha White's Shift Change!

****Excellent

Shift Change
Author Sasha White

Katie has a thing for Joe the security guard, she loves the look of his body and a man in uniform with handcuffs and nightstick really lights a fire beneath her desire. She travels down the elevator and to the vault every day to store the casino's money in the vault. Today she had decided it was time to make a move she is tired of waiting. Reaching the vault she asks him if they ever saw anything interesting in the security camera, like couples sneaking off to a corner.

Joe told her no it was mostly boring. Once she returns to her office she locks the door and puts on a sex show for Joe, making the fantasy real she calls him on the phone to make sure he was seeing everything. When it's all over she returns to doing her work. Joe appears in her office, demanding that she come with him, and to bring her purse and coat. Was she losing her job of her? Will Joe finally give her what she put the show? This short store cut right through the excess, yet gives you a good description of the character and the plot is intriguing.
