About Lashell Collins

Lashell Collins spent the last twenty years of her life working in Veterinary Hospitals and Garden Centers. But whether she was surrounded by the adorable puppies and kittens she helped to care for, or by the beautiful flowers, trees and shrubs, she constantly pursued her favorite pastime – reading romance novels and imagining herself as the heroine in each and every one of them!

After losing a few people who were important in her life, she began writing in her grief and found it to be very cathartic. She started several stories in various genres, but none of them seemed to click for her, and they remained unfinished. Finally, a light bulb went on over her head! Since she really enjoyed reading romance novels, perhaps she would enjoy writing them too! Her first attempt was an epic love story, chronicling the rise and fall of a major rock star. It was full of sex, scandal and intrigue. And it was complete and utter crap. She closed her laptop and hung her head in shame.

Then one day, after she had finished rereading one of her favorite romance novels for about the hundredth time, she opened up her laptop and tried again. And she hasn’t stopped writing since! All of Lashell’s stories are full of heart and romance, with smart dialogue and spicy sex scenes. She still loves writing about sexy rock stars. But she also loves writing about hot cops and hunky business men as well!

When she’s not writing, Lashell enjoys reading, shopping, eating Chinese food, and riding on the back of her husband’s Harley-Davidson. She loves watching General Hospital and Grimm. She is a huge music fan and is completely obsessed with Slash. Lashell is a member of the Romance Writers of America. Drop her a line; she loves to hear from readers.

This is my favorite Lashell Collins title to date. This book was a risk for the author (although that’s not apparent in this novel for even a split second). Somehow Collins writes as though she’s been writing paranormal for her entire career. Funny enough, though, one look at her backlist will prove that paranormal is far outside the realm of anything she’s ever written. Yet here she is—pushing the limits, discovering new and hidden talents, and proving once again that there’s really no sub-genre of romance that she can’t conquer.

So this is book one in the Lunar Falls trilogy, and I’m in awe of this series already.

Let’s begin with the hero. Gabe. Ah, Gabe! *takes a moment to swoon* He’s a winner. Hands down. He’s truly the ultimate Alpha male, but he has this incredible sensitivity to our heroine that is simply breathtaking. I loved everything about him. The reader gets to spend a great deal of time inside Gabe’s head, and I admired how well Collins orchestrated his thoughts. While sometimes sexual and possessive, I never once felt offended or put-off by his intentions, thoughts, and/or actions. The author handled everything about this character flawlessly.

Carly, our heroine, is badass to the core. She knows who she is, what she wants, and she's not afraid to speak her mind. I love that she can hold her own; this sets her miles and miles apart from most of the female protagonists we encounter in romance nowadays. She’s independent, but not stubbornly so. She has her place in the world… and she owns it. Plus, she’s a pet owner (to one very lovable creature!), and her relationship with Lobo speaks volumes about who she truly is on the deepest level. She's motherly, kind, and big-hearted. She’s everything I love to see in a heroine, and she’s everything I wanted for Gabe (and vice versa).

In the end, I love that Collins leaves the reader with a serious element of mystery. This makes for an exciting wait for the second book. I’m already questioning characters and their motives, and I'm sensing that Carly's backstory is going to eventually blow us all away. I’m anxious. I am SO stuck in this world, and that’s a GREAT sign that the author is doing something right! This book is a perfect mix of paranormal and romance… but more to my liking, it’s a perfect mix of lighthearted and dramatic. To say that I’m eager for part two is a vast understatement. I’m dying. I need it … like, yesterday.

Final note: I have a serious crush on (supporting character) Joe.
