An avid reader of science fiction/fantasy, her husband gave her a paranormal romance for Christmas one year, and she was hooked for good.

- Eternity Embraced
on March 30, 2011
This is a great compliment to the Demonica Series by Larissa Ione. It fills out the edges of the stories already written. However, it IS a teaser, not a stand-alone story. You get the full meal of her stories when you read the books, rather than this little novella. To find out more of Eidolon and Tayla, read Pleasure Unbound, where it all started.
- Wild Knights: an erotic menage shapeshifter novella
on March 30, 2011
This was a really good teaser to a BDSM lifestyle, but didn't quite make it. There was no communication between the characters so they could all understand where each was coming from. She didn't understand the dangers to their world; they didn't understand her past enough to teach her how she had the power in the relationship as the sub. It would have been better as a longer, better developed story. But good as a teaser.
- From the Gator's Mouth
on June 06, 2011
This was an intriguing short story, unfortunately it was a little hard to follow and some of the events seemed out of order. It's a good first draft, but it could use some polish. The dialog was entertaining and I liked Swampy, but I didn't get the sense of him or of Agatha much. The descriptions of the characters were emotionless and I couldn't taste, hear, smell or touch them. I was standing outside looking in, watching the show without sound. From the Gator's Mouth is an entertaining first draft, but not a finished product.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to just step off the world into the asteroid field off the shoulder of our planet? Here's your chance. Whimsical and well written, Doodling takes the reader in the wide universe of appliance worship and unending races. It certainly gives a new definition to "catch a falling star".
- L. A. Masquerade
on June 10, 2011
3.5 stars. I found the story to be well written, but had too many character POV's to be truly good. I think it would have been better if the author concentrated on one set of characters and used the others as auxiliary to the story. To learn about the others, write separate stories, perhaps starting with "that night". Not a bad story and the ending worries me, which was the point, so I'll read more. Separate out the characters so we can follow just one pair and it would be excellent.
- Fade to Black
on June 19, 2011
I'm a big fan of romances in general and I love contemporary romances with a great deal of conflict for the characters to overcome. Fade to Black has a great premise and the overall architecture is well thought out. It is a little long with some extraneous details that don't enhance the story, but the characters are strong. Of the four protagonists, I think Jesse is the best and most constant throughout the story. Fade to Black is a good illustration of the complex world we live in today and the problems facing many of us. A good read.
- Untamed Magick
on June 21, 2011
This novella didn't start off well for me - the characters got too familiar too quickly for being distrustful enemies. I didn't buy Graelen's willingness to sleep with the pretty innocent Rena (or hers with him, the big, scary, powerful witch) when he's spent his whole life hiding from women because of a terrible curse affecting his family for generations. I would have preferred a little more background and explanation into the characters' concerns before they jumped into bed. I couldn't quite connect with Rena (one moment she's a weak-kneed innocent, then next she's telling Grae off), but Grae was well constructed. However, as the story continued, the writing got tighter and the characters got more interesting. I'd be interested in reading the sequels because Cash seems like a tortured soul who needs saving (always a good thing for a romance writer to deal with), and there are two more brothers. I hope the connection point between the male and female protagonists is more believable.
- Kept (Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy: Blood Lust, novella 1)
on June 26, 2011
I thought Kept was a well written, tight story that grabbed me right from the first chapter. I was confused with Anthony the vampire, but he became more important later. Overall, a very good story and worth reading if you have an hour free.
on July 06, 2011
Let me start with what I didn't like: This novella needs to be fumigated for commas, de-"which"-ified, and firmly settled in either the present tense or the past tense, not both. Written from the first person, I believe the author forgot whether she was telling a story she'd experienced or was experiencing. It was annoying and kept knocking me out of the narrative. Also, the word "whilst" was used too much and should only show up in Historical fiction, not contemporary.
However, I loved her idea and her characters. I loved the idea of a werewolf tribe and how the male/female dynamic worked. I loved the power and majesty with which she infused her hero, Flint Riverclaw. I loved the reasoning behind Jessica's need for her mate.
This is a good second draft. It could have used some better editing and some careful critiquing. Had that happened, it would have been a kick-ass story.
- A Turn of Curses
on July 23, 2011
A Turn of Curses is an excellent fantasy novella. The characters are well constructed and believable. You care about Selina and Faldon; you care that they each fulfill their individual quests. The ending will tug at your heart and leave you satisfied. Melanie Nilles is a gifted storyteller! Well done!
- The Seduction of Damian (The Gossip of Mysterious Lane #1)
on Aug. 06, 2011
Have you ever wondered what your neighbors are up to? Have you ever wanted to experience the life of a celebrity? Well, now's your chance - and you get romance to boot! The Seduction of Damian is a sweet, heartwarming and hilarious tale of one man's efforts to remain anonymous and the love he earns from an unexpected source. Did I mention he's a vampire? That means he's sexy as hell, but that it's more of a curse than a blessing, at least to his perspective. This story is sweetly told and you can definitely let your teenaged daughters delight in the romantic aspects of it. Beautifully written prose and hilarious neighborhood interactions will fill your heart with joy and stretch your smile muscles.
- Masters at Arms
on Sep. 18, 2011
Excellent debut and already I'm interested in teh first novel of this series, Nobody's Angel, coming out on September 30th! This is a well written set up to the love stories of three men, damaged by life and by war. I sorrowed with Master Adam for the loss of his wife; I ached with Master Marc for the guilt about his brother, and I hope Master Damian can find peace even when he couldn't find his lady. Well written prose and excellent suspense lead me looking for more!
- Gaea's Chosen: The Mayday Directive
on Oct. 20, 2011
Do you like sci-fi? Here's a well written short story that threatens at sequels. If you're into erotic romance in a science fiction setting, this is not the story you're looking for. But if you like science fiction with romantic elements, this is the real deal. How would you deal with being shot out into space, waking up on an unknown planet, and interacting with (dangerous) indigenous life? Commander Gemma Bryant gets the opportunity to strut her stuff on a weird planet with a long, long day and she does it despite the losses she's sustained. Vivid imagery and humorous storytelling suck the reader into this world until the very last page when you're begging for more. Take a chance on the debut of this author. Worth all 99 pennies!
- Karma & Melodies
on March 25, 2012
I really liked this short tale of a woman turned by an evil sire and making her escape, only to run into the man she wanted to be with ten years earlier. I thought the ending was a little rushed (I guess I would've liked it to be longer), but overall I liked the flow of the story, the character development and felt they were realistically written. Nicely done. I'll happily read more of Ms. Salidas' work again. :)
