Rated 4.00/5 based on 2 reviews
Being kidnapped was merely a daydream of Tayla's. It seemed better than marrying a man older than her father, but it was never really going to happen.

But when the man in the silver mask appeared, everything changed for the princess.

Filled with violence, passion, and a heavy dose of Stockholm syndrome, Handmaid is a tawdry bit of story that will while away the time.

About Raven Corinn Carluk

Talking about myself is much harder than writing a book. You'd think a wordmistress wouldn't have such a problem, but I do. Let me rework a flat scene any day.

Simple background: I'm married, have lots of pets, still work full time, and grew up in Las Vegas.

But there's so much more to a person than that.

Writing is more than just words on paper to me. It's a passion, an incessant need, a deep-seated drive to be a storyteller. I knew I wanted to be an author as far back as high school. Writing may have taken a backseat a few times, but I finally made it.

My stories have bite because I'm a little different, and like slightly different things. No shock horror here, or cheap gimmicks meant to offend, or pandering to the latest trend. My vampires love human blood, my dragons hunt people, and my elves are magical and arrogant.

Romance and darkness will always go together for me. Love really can get you through anything, as I know from personal experience. My characters will always have that glimmer of new love, that bond with a soulmate, and will do anything to be with their one and only.

When I'm not busy having things killed. Being deeply romantic doesn't mean I'm not also a violent or twisted writer. Fight scenes, bloodshed, dark magic, and triumphant villains all have their places in my tales.

I'll never apologize for who I am. Sometimes abrasive and uncouth, full of contradictions and juxtaposition, I am merely who I am.

And what I am is a storyteller wanting to craft new entertainments for you.

Reviews of Handmaid by Raven Corinn Carluk

Christina O'Connell reviewed on Jan. 6, 2019

In one of her tweets, the author called this a tawdry tale.I wasn't sure what she meant until I actually read it, and now I understand. Tawdry is definitely the right word.

The writing is a little heavy at times, just too many words, but that somehow makes it all the more foreign and weird as this young woman is kidnapped and slowly falls for her captor.

I loved the end reveal. What a twist!

Hot and steamy, with just the right amount of build up to a final climax.
