About S. Hart

I was raised in a community that still hums with folklore and superstition, and has a flair for drama that would put most to shame. Although that may not come across in novels such as these, I have a separate hard drive that holds my other work. I prefer to write stories centered around dark humor, drama and terrible circumstances mixed with folklore crashing into daily life. I'm thin as a rail, listen to music while I write and have been caught on multiple occasions dancing in my chair while I edit and proofread. I've tried many outlets for creativity, and the one that I enjoy the most is my writing, closely followed by my artwork.

I do not enjoy long walks on the beach, I am not overly fond of watching the sun rise or set and I have not yet traveled to see anywhere far off and fantastic. I am, however, a damn good shot in a FPS. I drink beer, hate bananas for no good reason and my favorite season is winter because someone needs to love it. I write fast and often, and if my first novel wasn't enough of an indication, I like to please everyone.

My intro to the author was through the Swardmaster Dasan stories and after reading that, i has to find more. I really enjoyed Tarro's narrative voice. Being inside the inner workings of his mind truely added to the book. Nerine' character was just as tragic although not in the similar physical life or death kind of way as Tarro. How interesting it would be to have this in Nerine's perspective as well.

This book is a casual, conversational narrative by Tarro, a widower who finds himself taking a handsome, charming, intelligent, swoon-worthy stud of a young man under his wing as he battles the forces of evil (his mother-in-law).
Oh, Tarro, you poor broken thing. Sweet, sweet Nerin, you sexy thang you .. coming straight from SMD, this story is quite different but no less compelling. Nerin is seriously just the cutest, sweetest thing ever, and reading the book from Tarro's point of view really helps you to appreciate that.
Also, I'm so in love with Tarro's children! I could read a whole book of just Tarro and Nerin playing with the kids, and all the silly shenanigans they get into.
Another wonderful read! I'm going on to the holiday special now. Woo!

Review by: Sadie S. Forsythe on May 18, 2013 :
Before I even read the first page of this novel it had two important things going for it. I secretly love m/m stories and I am a closet manga addict, so the very yaoi-ish cover attracted me immediately. I am thrilled to say that it lived up to my expectations, exceeded them even. I read 90% of it with a ridiculous silly grin on my face, teared up more than once, had to get myself a quick glass of ice water and return to it again and again (whew), then eventually had to admit that the whole thing made my heart hurt. Tarro's life isn't an easy one to face. It is definitely cringeworthy. But every painful, horrible thing that happens in this book is made up for in the wonderful character that is Nerin. *swoon* Yes, he and Tarro have turned me into a sad little fangirl.

The book is told in first person, from the POV of Tarro. I'm not generally a fan of first person narratives, in fact I kind of hate them. But I have to admit I enjoyed it here. Tarro had such a fantastically sarcastic and jaded tone/voice that it was a pleasure to read. I also liked his blatant honesty, especially about himself and his own proclivities.

I read a lot. I write a lot of reviews. But I rarely rave. I rarely give unadulterated praise. But I am officially declaring myself an S. Hart fan. If you enjoy yaoi or M/M romances (and honestly I would only recommend this if you do) this is one worth picking up.

This story could have been a bit longer and more detailed, but it was overall very satisfying (take that as you will.) I would recommend it to anyone looking for something relatively short and quite sweet, as well as very, very hot.
