About Cherise Sinclair

USA Today Bestselling Author Cherise Sinclair is an award-winning author of erotic romance.

I met my dearheart when vacationing in the Caribbean. Now I won’t say it was love at first sight. Actually since he was standing over me, enjoying the view down my swimsuit top, I might even have been a tad peeved -- as well as attracted. But although our time together there was less than two days, and although we lived in opposite sides of the country, love can’t be corralled by time or space.

We’ve now been married for many, many years. (And he still looks down my swimsuit tops.)

Nowadays, I live in the west with this obnoxious, beloved husband, two children, and various animals, including three cats who rule the household. I’m a gardener, and I love nurturing small plants until they’re big and healthy and productive…and ripping defenseless weeds out by the roots when I’m angry. I enjoy thunderstorms, playing Scrabble and Risk and being a soccer mom. My favorite way to spend an evening is curled up on a couch next to the master of my heart, watching the fire, reading, and…well…if you’re reading my books, you obviously know what else happens in front of fires.

Hour of the Lion by Cherise Sinclair

With this book, Ms Sinclair has become a ‘go to’ author for me in the paranormal genre.

“Yea though I walk through the Valley of Death, I shall fear no evil, for I am the baddest M-F in the valley.” This line described Vic Morgan’s outer shell to me. “Coffee and chocolate—the inventor of mocha should be sainted,” described Victoria’s inner girl.

This story was wonderfully written and full (28 chapters) of characters and details that made me understand this new paranormal world. It made me want to continue reading this series so much that I immediately went and purchased WINTER OF THE WOLF.

Vic is such a strong character in this story “Pain is weakness leaving the body.” And she has the quirkiest inner voice that on occasion comes out in the funniest lines…“Gramps always says people only swear because their vocabulary is limited.” Vic… “’In certain trying circumstances, urgent circumstances, desperate circumstances, profanity furnishes a relief denied even to prayer,’” Mark Twain…

The relationship between Calum, Vic and Alec was established through a one on one bases in the beginning of this story and continued through the middle of the book. Only toward the end did it, in my opinion, form a triad.

There was light ‘tie-me-ups’ and Calum and Alec were definitely Alpha’s but the sex scenes though descriptive, were not written in the Erotica fashion I’m use to. I always felt there was something missing. Even the ‘gathering’ scenes lacked a certain something. There was this one M&M scene that sounded interesting and should have been explored….I would have liked to read more about the brown and green M&Ms…but alas they left it to my imagination.

Despite that one weakness, this story as a whole was good read for me. Now my last quote in this book that I had to add…because it was that good.
“Lord, look down on Thy Servant! Bad things have come to pass.
There is no heat in the midday sun, nor health in the wayside grass.
His bones are full of an old disease—his torments run and increase.
Lord, make haste with Thy Lightning and grant him a quick release!”

Another winner from Cherise Sinclair! I always watch for her books, she's a solid writer that I can depend on to turn out well-written stories. This is another well-written story. I stayed up wwwaaaayyyyy too late reading it so I could finish it, I never could find a place I could make myself put it down. It is a longer novel too, hard to find in the ebook world. It is well worth the price and the time to read it.
