About James Sillwood

Living in the peace and quiet of Southern Brittany, James Sillwood readily acknowledges that the peaceful surroundings at his cottage inspire an atmosphere conducive to writing.
After an itinerant early life, James has now settled in France and divides his time between writing and music. As an accomplished musician he plays regularly as a soloist and with a Latin jazz group. It is here, at his secluded home in Brittany, that Amatore's Restaurant has been completed. This book, along with West Quarry Farm and two other novels, have been long term projects; the first ideas for the plot and characters taking shape well over ten years ago. It has only been in the last year or so that he has been able to focus on finishing these works.
When taking a break from performing and writing, James takes a keen interest in Breton culture and local history, enjoys trying out regional recipes, visiting local markets and exploring the surrounding area.

Secret Deceptions by James Sillwood was a great read. I liked that it wasn't about just one person or couple. It was about numerous people/couples in Europe. Each person has their own different sexual scenario. Every single one was different, which was a nice change. By the end of the book every character was tied together in some way at Amatore's Restaurant so they aren't just talking about random people on the street. This book could never be considered boring because it was constantly changing. Changing people and every story was unique. It was multiple stories that by the end had been tied up into one. I have never read a book like this and have to say I was pleasantly surprised.
The story that comes to mind the most was Cordelia and Brad. Wow the scene was hot and she knew what she wanted. I almost felt bad for Brad. Her asking if he has ever made love to a woman before, and then asking if he can remember what to do?!? Ha she's bad ass.

“Why demand that I go back there when he had no intention of doing anything with me? I wondered what it would take to get him going. What could I do to stir him up? This was turning into a challenge – and I just couldn’t resist a challenge.”

First of all, I really loved the fact that the restaurant is based in Kensington, London, since I’ve been planning a trip to England this year and that’s where I’ll be staying, but let’s not get sidetracked. I really enjoyed this steamy little story. The connections formed in Amatore’s Restaurant are filled with sensuality and are very provocative. Each character has their own story and I really liked how they were told in their own point of views. The stories were always intertwined with people from the dining hall and didn’t break connection. The characters were well written and their stories were delectably surprising. My favorite story was titled Bodywork where a strong headed actress meets a mechanic that leaves her all hot and bothered.
This is not just an erotic book (although it has plenty of that), it is a collection of sexual liaisons that are tastefully told, and are also filled with a sense of intrigue that will keep you engaged to the very end.

This book had me hooked instantly, mostly because each chapter was a different character. I loved each of the steamy stories and how they were told in the past and present tense. One of my favorite things about them is that they were all spread throughout Europe and I felt like this gave the book more depth. I really enjoyed the way that the characters all came together at the end and how well each story worked together. The sex scenes were hot and fun to read, but far from raunchy or over the top. They were simply a way to highlight each character's story.
My favorite character was probably Cordelia because I really enjoyed the way she had to be in control. So many times in books I feel that the woman is a passive player in her own sexual and life experiences, but Cordelia took charge, which I liked.
I also really enjoyed the dynamic between Lucia and Chiara - I felt that relationship was one of the best in the book.
Overall, really fun read!
