Smashwords book reviews by Samantha Francis

  • Hidden Series 1-3 (Hidden Talents, Hidden Depths, Hidden Crimes) on June 25, 2013

    3 interesting stories by Emma Holly. I've read a huge amount of her books, from the Fitz Clare Chronicles to her Black Lace work- it's all hot and fun. I especially liked the world building of Resurrection in the first and third stories here. The second story starts out very "Dear Penthouse" to me, but it does improve, and if you like multi-partner scenes its does have its fair share. I simply preferred the werewolf stories more. Looking forward to more about Resurrection!
  • The Mating: The Original Law of the Lycans Story on June 25, 2013

    This first book in the series is very much Harlequin with werewolves. It's not my particular favorite, but if you like Harlequins you'll probably like this. The novels quality and writing improve as the series continues- I toughed out Book 1, but by Book 4 I'm really enjoying the world building and the characters and dialogue are much improved. Great series to take to the beach this summer.
  • Every Night Forever (Hyena Heat One) on Nov. 24, 2013

    Loved this book. I'm still re-reading it two months later. Hot, fun, and emotionally touching.

    I love all these Resurrection books, but this one is my new favorite. I love the interaction of two shy people discovering each other. Also, Cass' backstory with a very good reason why she was so nervous about using her fae power was a great touch. It was an interesting contrast too to the confidence the fae males in the series have with using their powers- not everyone with that power is necessarily comfortable with it. Thanks for another great ride through Resurrection!
