Artemis frequently wishes she has telekinesis, so she doesn't have to lift a finger to change the room temperature. She's constantly glued to her computer, which serves as her gateway to her friends, books, movies, TV serials and sometimes husband, even though they're sitting on the same bed two feet apart.
Artemis writes under the name of multiple bestselling erotica author APHRODITE HUNT for straight erotica. Together, they have had 18 books in the Amazon Top 100 Erotica and 1 in the Top 100 Romance.

Better written than most of the other smashwords books here. This book is also better edited. At least the author and their editor know the difference between your and you're. For me, that's a cardinal sin in editing and will make me feel like I should be demanding my money back for editing a live book when it should be done before it publishes. Such is the world of self-publishing.
That said, the author wastes no time in ending this series in 16,000 words. Bigger named authors seem to need 90,000 more words to do what Artemis Hunt did in 16,000...and at a fraction of the price.
This series ties up neatly and in a satisfying way.
While reading this, I felt like this was a racier version of a Harlequin Presents. While that's not bad, it's not exactly original, either. This plays into the archetypical rich man, poor maid girl. Not exactly my favorite scenario, but one that seems to do well in romance fiction.
I'm also surprised that the author chose Moldavia, given that it's a not a monarchy anymore when it had its own Velvet Revolution in the 60s like most of the Eastern bloc. Finally...Moldavia made me think of Dynasty - that tv show from the 80s whose re-runs I've watched religiously when it came on recently. Prince Michael, Amanda, Blake, Alexis and Krystle - oh boy. That's an 80s flashback!
Overall I was happy with this series and look forward to reading more of Artemis Hunt's works. Well edited, good flow and a great storyteller - what more can I ask of a self-published author?
