Pink velvet and black lace. Light and darkness. A world of contrasts exists in Natalie’s stories because every rose has its thorn. Her favourite stories to write are romances with a dark edge featuring brooding heroes, strong heroines, an intriguing mystery, and a good dash of fantasy.
Married, with one son, she now calls the beautiful island of Malta home after eleven good years in Atlanta, GA. As a professional editor and author, her days are always busy, but when she’s not working—or muttering to herself about her book plots like a batty old maid—she enjoys spending time with family and friends (both online and offline), sipping on a good shiraz, reading, cooking and entertaining, watching a good movie, travelling, and ogling shoe store displays. Most of all, she loves to meet and communicate with other authors and readers.

on June 09, 2013 :
Inescapable, book one in the Eternelles series is a promising start to this series.
It’s never a dull moment for mother and Daughter Adri and Sera. Sera Part Phoenix, part Vampyre and an eternelle, is feeling the pressure of dominance from her controlling mother ‘Adri’ and Rafe, the Vampyre who turned her. Left alone for a century, Rafe appears to stake his claim on Sera and her body just when the pressure of her mother increases when a mystery is to be solved.
Adri daughter of Dionysos, the Greek god of wine and revelry, is at her wits end, after her friend is killed by a soul stealer and a statue is stolen, her daughter Sera is now in danger and tries to protect her at all costs. But Sera fights her control at every corner. When Des comes on the scene Adri’s feelings for the mysterious man complicate things further and adds to the stress and mystery and the passion.
My only criticism on the book is in some parts, there is a tad tendency of over description between a question, a though and an answer, that sometimes you have to read back to refresh what was said.” And at first I was a little confused as to which character you were reading from their prospective as it changes throughout the book, though that said, I enjoyed the writing style.
I liked all the characters and secretly hope that Rafe will be a knight in shining armour for Sera and the same with Des to Adri.
A book with passion, obsession, mystery and murder, it’s a recipe for a brilliant series, which I hope book two ‘Indomitable’ won’t be a too long wait?
