Smashwords book reviews by Stan Grimes

  • The Prophecy (An Estilorian Short Story) on Dec. 14, 2011

    The Prophecy was a great read and I must say the characters are well developed and believable. I give thumbs up to Raine Thomas, a great author.
  • It's Igloo Time Baby on Sep. 04, 2012

    I've read most of Vonda's stories. Not only are they a breath of fresh air but they're also very sexy. Vonda has captured the ability to write funny and sexy at the same time. "It's Igloo Time Baby" is a typical Vonda Norwood and I hope to read her next story. Great read!
