- The Finding
on Feb. 18, 2011
I am new to shape shifters and was introduced to Nicky Charles' Mating by accident. I loved it then read The Keeping a few weeks ago and of course jumped for joy at release of The Finding this week. I love Nicky's writing, great plot, sexy without being tacky. I enjoy reading her books and appreciate the lack of constant profanity. I give this book two thumbs up!! Keep writing and I will keep reading. Classy Work! I have been eagerly sharing the three books with my friends. Looking forward to the next book.
- Dating A Cougar (Book 1 of the Never Too Late Series)
on April 21, 2011
I really enjoyed Dating a Cougar's storyline. I agree with the authors perspective about sophisticated love/romances since I am no longer 30. I smile, laughed and "almost cried" and appreciated Ms. MCDonald's message and it is a good one.
Alexa confident, self assured, smart, business minded and generous. Casey is determined, creative and OMG sexy. Since I live in Maryland I knew the visualization of the settings were easy to relate to.
Keep writing and I'll keep reading. Way to Go Donna!!
- Hometown Prophet

Mr. Fulmer has wonderful writing skills!! This book touches every emotion possible. We all wish to know what will happen next but after reading this it would be extremely stressful, seeing the good, bad and extremely ugly.
Highly Recommending this to my church-going friends and family.

- The Emperor's Edge (a high fantasy mystery in an era of steam)
on July 02, 2011
I give the novel five stars. I really am not a fan of steampunk but I found this book to be an adventurous, mystery/fantasy and entertaining read. I like the authors writing style which painted a vivid pictures of the settings, characters, action. I enjoyed the conversations the characters engaged in and it gave me a chuckle. Amaranthe was fantastic. Everyone loves a strong woman.

Wow! Too bad I did not read this book in the dead of winter snow storms 'cause this puppy was sizzlin'!!
I have recommended Amulet to a few friends and I can't wait to meet to discuss it. I will post my review on Amazon and Goodreads as well. I loved this book.
The life lessons were meaningful, characters well developed, hot erotic scenes, just enough twist and turns embedded within the story to hold your interest outside of the erotica.
Looking forward to Amulet 2!
- Enemies and Playmates
on July 28, 2011
Enemies and Playmates was appropriately named. Great characters and plot with plenty of intrigued. Ms. Helle is truly gifted as a writer. I highly recommend this book. As a matter of fact a few friends and I are meeting to discuss it.
- The Jinx
on July 28, 2011
Jinx is a read that the one must push through a first few chapters before jumping off into the spice and fast ride. It is a change of pace to start slowly and then build up to the excitement, deep and thought provoking.

As always Nicky Charles delivers an exciting tale of erotic romance between shape-shifters. I love the characters and the factors regarding the characters background and the hierarchy of werewolves packs. This information adds so much to this book and the other books by Ms. Charles.
The characters Brandi, Reno, Damien, Klaus were truly characters readers can love as family members. Their constant love for each other and the community reinforces that as a people we need to get over the racial nonsense and pettiness of small-minded, mean-spirited individuals and do what is right and will help our society exceed and bring about lasting joy and peace.
I loved the manner in which Reno, Damien were loyal to each other regardless of what others thought or said. Their friendship allowed growth and willingness to learned from one another. The kinship of the half and the werewolves as pack members illustrates that real love is an unbreakable bond that grows in spite of the weeds of discontent that try so hard to choke it to death. Terrific work!!
Thanks Ms. Charles for an enjoyable and meaningful read. I look forward to your next book.
- Confessions of a Whore 2 (London Brown #2)
on July 21, 2013
Bond Confessions (London Brown Volume 2) Novella 1 Leila DeSint
Caution: Bond Confessions (London Brown Volume 2) Novella is written for the Mature Adults only!!
Ladies and Gentlemen please fasten your seat belts as you prepare to be shaken, rattled and rolled on Leila DeSint's BSDM rocket. Ms. DeSint's narrative Bond Confessions (London Brown Volume 2) is definitely not for the faint of heart and is crafted for the very mature and discerning readers of erotica with strong BDSM vibrations. I enjoyed being strapped into the lives of Desniah Williams, London Brown, the Carrington generation and Rhys. Ms. DeSint will toss your cookies mentally, physically, emotionally in an electrifying erotic tale intertwined with all types of BSDM flavors.
Ms. DeSint takes us on a haunting ride into the past and the present in Desniah Williams troubled and painful existence because of a wicked man. Ms. DeSint shares the pain and suffering Des endures after each of London's escapades resulting in going into hiding in her apartment until she appears once again the gorgeous sexy goddess. I felt Des's loneliness as a recluse and the need to be held by someone who sincerely loved her. I wanted her to have that strong, broad non-threatening masculine shoulder to bury her face into releasing the heavy burdens and sadness because I needed it as much as she did.
Pleasing characters with elaborate personalities, beautiful settings and story complexities makes for a challenging page turner. Bond Confessions (London Brown Volume 2) Novella 1, is explosive and explicit; readers might bring along their sharp analytical abilities to stay with the characters and the brilliantly insertion of flashbacks throughout the narrative. I enjoyed Ms. DeSint's brain stimuli which I find is absent in many erotica/BDSM novels.
I found myself on the tittering edge of a host of feelings/sensations as I shared in the lives of complex personalities and circumstances awaiting me in Bond Confessions (London Brown Volume 2). I engorged myself on the titillating voyage to near explosion. Ms. DeSint powerful writing talents rattled me as a baton tapping on a podium calling the members of her orchestra to attention. I loved the manner in which Ms DeSint redirects me; causing me to pay close attention while the next series of carnal events unfolded and the impact it has on the characters.
My introduction to London/ Desniah startled me with some perplexities due to the unsuspecting dynamics in London/Desniah leaving me with jolt as if I had been pushed into middle of the pool without my fins. :-) I was taken by surprise in the beginning of Bond Confessions trying to adjust to the personalities of London and Desniah. Dealing with multiple personalities with guarded protectiveness yet stoic strength of London/Desniah operating at polar opposites. One works in the oldest profession/ prostituting herself to for money however, I am not clear as to why. London is the dominate personality. It is strange that London lacks a discerning clientele filter to avoid harmful clients resulting with multiple physical damage that is clearly visible to anyone. These cases of abuse is problematic because she can not allow her father, Mr. Williams, a prominent member of society to see her in these physically battered conditions. London undoubtedly will have a challenge on her hands trying to justify her injuries. How many times can falling down stairs or running into doors be used as an excuse for being black and blue? London's involvement with Caden Carrington the V has complexities that occasionally I felt as though I needed near FBI skills to keep track of the nature of this relationship. Wow, I was captivated by Ms. DeSint use of flashbacks.
Threads appeared somewhat frazzled when I was inattentive to the finely sprinkled activities and the motives of the key characters of this deeply seductive narrative. Those highly obscured fragments were critical in understanding and connecting the dots in Bond Confessions (London Brown Volume 2) which I found intriguing in an erotic novella.
Desniah resides in the same body as London but is a soft and gentile person who has been hurt in her relationships with Cadens, perhaps her father and others making Desniah appear shy and vulnerable dodging conflicts of any kind. Although she and London share sexual appetites my bond with Des was different than London's because of Desniah's demur persona.
Caden the Fifth has strong affection for London and Desniah but I get the feeling that he prefers London because she is a harder nut to crack.
Desniah is fortunate to have a trusted, dear friend such as Rhys' and it is a perfect relationship for them both. This awesome bond of devotion is not understood by outside observers rendering the noisy clueless of what goes on behind the dark emotional curtain. Desniah and Rhys association instigates a series of rumors on the wagging tongues of England's high society elite gossipers. Rhys is a colorful, highly engaging character and I feel so comfortable with him because he understands who he is and his sensual relationships with women. He too, delights in some of the BDSM practices and has the same challenges keeping his darker side hidden. Is Rhys enjoyment of being with women only to exert his power and sense of control?
As I read with bated breath there are several scenes artfully and masterfully depicted by Ms. DeSint that boils over the top creating engulfing sizzle between Desniah London the Carringtons and Rhys. Is everyone using the other for emotional, professional, physical, personal motives and agendas? Only time will tell!
I appreciate the many twists and turns being birthed from the soul of Ms. DeSint and not knowing what to expect until the unveiling of the next installment.
Way to go Ms. DeSint!! I can hardly wait for the next volume this will be a series I will make certain not miss a single episode.
Double Caution: Bond Confessions (London Brown Volume 2) is for MATURE ADULTS!!!
