Book Review Spolight: An Era Apart -Chris Lange

Disclaimer: I purchased the following e-book.

Book Blurb:

A woman, a man. Sausalito California 2011, San Francisco 1899. Although they live "an era apart", their goal is the same: find her missing father. And so, they meet...

Time Travel. Parallel universes. Clash of cultures. High action. Intrigue. Passion. Romance.

Yup. Can't find a better way to spend my time! I had the luxury of immersing myself in this grand tale one overcast Saturday afternoon.  Giant mug o' coffee, nested on the couch with my laptop, favorite plaid wool blanket (hey, no Linus wise cracks) and I let the real world shimmer, melt into the gray of the afternoon.

Tracy Richardson receives a cryptic message concerning her aloof, brilliant professor father may be in danger and steps from the 21st century into 1899 San Francisco, where she meets aristocratically proper Garret Burnes.

Modern sensibilities versus the staid, proper mannerisms of the waning days of the Victorian Era. The clash of culture makes for engaging exchanges and Chris Lange deftly captures each subtle nuance.

Along the way, we are introduced to a colorful cast of characters-the ruggedly masculine gunslinger, Vampire huntress, a humorous, capable Dr. Watson-esque everyman accompanied by his faithful wolf hound and a mysteriously dark and sexy guardian vampire.

The story unraveled like a taut, fast paced graphic novel, with a sizzling dash of sex, and time-crossed lovers.

Get lost in this compelling fantasy this weekend or any-day!

Dark Days of Demons Blog

I'll be at Book Boost Blog on October 11th, 2011 chatting about the state of Demons in modern Romantic literature. It is in celebration of all things Demon-y. Stop by for a chance to win a copy of my dark, edgy erotic paranormal romance The Darker side of Heaven. Be there or be square-as in  a charcoal briquette. Demons don't like to be stood up!

18th Floor by Margie Church

The 18th floor is many things. Namely, a hot, viscerally erotic read. While its overt sexuality is readily apparent, there is an undercurrent of tension regarding the characters lifestyles. Margie Church deftly weaves complex sociological and psychological themes in her blistering, sizzling, decidedly adult book.

I enjoyed the depth of compassion Sebi, A Dom, displayed to his novice Sub, Alexa. It's not your typical BDSM story.

Emotionally gratifying and satisfying ( on so many levels), The 18th floor is a must read for anyone who is looking for something outside the usual romance convention.

Review of Angels Cry by J.S. Wayne

Note: Unless otherwise stated, all books that I review, I have purchased.

I'm always impressed when an author can take established mythology, legend, fact or fiction and make it their own.  J.S. Wayne deftly weaves biblical lore within a contemporary tapestry, making for a familiar, yet unique and plausible reality mixed with elements of fantasy.
Angels Cry continues the tale of Moradiel, a Soul Bearing Angel who falls in love with human Ariel, sparing her life by altering events per-ordained by a higher power.
On the run from the Angel of Death, Azrael, they make their stand, of all places, in Sin City, Las Vegas.  I found this to be an amusing touch by Mr. Wayne.
There is a large cast in this novel and while some may argue that to have many ancillary characters in a romance novel detracts from main thrust (pun intended) of the central protagonists of the story. I whole-heartedly disagree. The secondary characters, fully realized and textured, add dramatic texture and a bit of comic relief to the eventual showdown between Azrael and Moradiel.

Angels Cry is a story about the enduring power of love, and how it can literally, move Heaven and Hell.
