Heart You (A Roommate Romance Erotic Valentine's Day Story)
Heart You (A Roommate Romance Erotic Valentine's Day Story)
Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Short, hot but sweet erotic fantasy, 22 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Are you after a sweet yet explicit, passionately erotic short story of female friends admitting their desire for one another in the context of a threesome? If so then this short story is for you.

Sam has been carrying a flame for her flatmate Kara for some time, unknown to the latter. Kara's sudden suggestion that Sam join in a sexually-charged game of find the matching pairs of heart candies with her latest beau, Daniel - a game, moreover, featuring intimate forfeits - gives Sam the perfect `in' to test the waters...

This cross of sexual fantasy and sweet romance focuses as much on Sam's feelings as it does on the action between the sheets, and as such is perfect for those who like a story that is hot but also shows a real connection, real tenderness. The scenario is well set up too, with enough background and build-up to get into Sam's head and feel her desire ignite.

The only issue I had is that Daniel is scarcely developed as a character and seems to be there mainly as a catalyst to Sam's exploration of Kara. But despite that, this is a fun, sexy and sweet read.

I'm looking forward to the next in the series of (I believe unrelated) Roommate Romance stories.


Blood Potion No. 9 (Netherworld Book 2)
Blood Potion No. 9 (Netherworld Book 2)

5.0 out of 5 stars A more than worthy successor for Drop Dead Sexy, 9 Jun. 2012
I enjoyed this follow-on to Drop Dead Sexy even more than the original. In this book, Brandi really comes into her own, discovering that a ghost can kick ass, though she manages to get herself in a few rather delicious scrapes on the way and is still torn between (at least) two men.

The action is well-paced, interleaved with lots of sex scenes. In some places the sex threatens to become repetitive, but there is enough variety (including a rather hot public scene - read it and see) and enough at stake for the characters to alleviate this. The main plot is engaging too, as are the peripheral problems of the characters.

5 stars, and I'm definitely going to read the third in the series when it comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and sexy, 2 Mar. 2012
Brandilynn Payson is shocked to find her strange dream isactually the afterlife, that she's been murdered and that other denizens of theparanormal world are relying on her to remember who the killer is. But it seemsthat being dead doesn't curtail the urges of the living...

The central mystery is engaging and forms a good frameworkfor the story, but is not very complex. Those readers used to fiendish whodunitswill find this one too simple, but then the book is more an erotic adventurewith a mystery thrown in than a mystery with added erotic scenes. Maybe onethird of the book consists of well written, explicit intimate encounters, agood number of which feature light bondage and sexual submission. The authorcertainly knows how to describe these without resorting to cliché, but it isthe insight into the female lead character's attitudes to sex which engaged meas much as the acts themselves.

Although not very challenging, I really enjoyed this bookand am glad that I read it. That is, after all, the main thing.

5 stars.


Zombie Hunter's Holiday, A
Zombie Hunter's Holiday, A

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun read, 15 Feb. 2012
I really enjoyed this book. It's short and there are a few more typos than I'd have liked to see in a book that actually reached the stage of being published, but it was a fun read. Not at all serious, as the title suggests, the stereotypically vapid style-conscious chick manages to redeem herself and the wrongs her fears of stepping outside society's expectations of her have led her to heap on her long-suffering, nerd-hero, male friend.

I felt the plot lurched (pun intended) when it jumped to the first zombie attack on the heroine, but otherwise it was fairly paced and made for an enjoyable few hours. I certainly don't regret having bought it.

Note: this is zombie-apocalypse erotica and there is explicit sex (though no zombie sex, you'll be relieved to know).

4 stars


Avenger's Angel: Lost Angels Book 1

4.0 out of 5 stars A promising start, 22 Nov. 2011
Ellie Granger can heal people with her hands and move objects with her mind - and she has struggled for most of her life to keep her powers hidden for fear of attracting the attention from those who would abuse her gifts. Does that include movie star Christopher Daniels or media mogul Sam Lambent?

When she finds out why she possesses these powers, and that she has a destiny, her world is blown apart once again.

This is an excellent read and a good first part to what promises to be a very entertaining series. One can easily sympathise with the plight of the main character and she has enough character and sass to carry the story well.

A couple of things did niggle me. That the angels never once doubted the morality of having women created to be their mates did make them seem more than a little misogynistic. A little misgiving about it would have made them seem more palatable (I was going to say human, but they're not and so shouldn't be judged as such) as well as more rounded. The other issue I had with the book was that Gabriel's Scots accent seemed a little off in places. But those are minor issues compared to the enjoyment I got from reading this story.

The universe and mythology of the book has plenty of room for fleshing out as the series continues and there are several characters with real possibilities for development, such as the intriguing Max whose motivations are never explained at more than surface level and whom I hope will have some surprises in store for us.

I eagerly await the next in the saga.

Easily 4 stars, almost 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun erotic paranormal, 7 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Bitten (Kindle Edition)
Modern-day witch Sandra is leery of vampires but nevertheless accompanies her sister to a vampire nightclub. There she encounters one particular blood-sucker who lights a spark and starts to change her mind. Thrown deeper into their world by a series of nasty killings, she discovers a sexually adventurous side to herself that she had never before suspected. How can she reconcile love and sexual need, family and her undead lovers?

This is a great book. Although the plot isn't particularly novel, it is well written and one really feels drawn into the characters and their conflicts. The sex scenes are sizzling hot and there are snatches of humour to the dialogue that really warm one to the characters, as well as moments of grittiness that stop it from becoming soppy. Maybe not as polished as some offerings, with a few errors here and there, but no worse for that. A damned fun read, and that's what matters!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, fast-paced and atmospheric, 24 Feb. 2011
Logan, a lonely and frustrated high school senior girl, is more than ready to pay attention when new boy Sam shows an interest in her. But she soon finds herself the target of a terrible obsession, for the month of October is a special time when the door to the land of the dead eases open and all it takes is one mistake for something old and dreadful to slip through into our world and take form. With her terrible family life and more imagination than is good for her, Logan has more reason than most to be tempted by what is on offer.

This story is fast-paced and well written, with a rich and internally consistent supernatural background, in which Heather Killough-Walden's knowledge of Celtic mythology shines through. The opening scene, on the Druid island stronghold of Anglesey as it is stormed by the Romans, grabs one straight away, and the climatic scene at the school Halloween Ball is truly frightening in how it portrays the ease with which normal people can be swayed into committing dreadful deeds by one charismatic person (bringing to mind Lord of the Flies).

In my opinion this is the best story yet by Heather Killough-Walden. Thoroughly recommended for lovers of the supernatural.

The Strip (The Big Bad Wolf Series)
The Strip (The Big Bad Wolf Series)

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb werewolf tale, 13 Feb. 2011
When Charlie's band is hired for a long exclusive run at a Las Vegas hotel and casino, she is drawn into the hidden world of the werewolves. Sought after by two clan alphas, she finds her heritage will bind her to this world of shape-shifters whether she wants it or not.

This, the follow-on from The Heat, is a fast paced and well written story. Heather's werewolves are very masculine, driven by their needs, but it is not at all one-sided because her strong female characters are quite able to put the males in their place when deserved.

An enjoyable, exciting and sexy read.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent supernatural romance thriller, 23 Jan. 2011
When Lily St. Claire moves back to her home town of Baton Rouge after some years in Texas she quickly falls back in with her old friend Tabitha. But what is more surprising is all the attention from Tabitha's brother Daniel, a man she previously thought had no interest in her. But the siblings have a secret and Lily will soon be drawn into their world, torn between Daniel and another of his kind.

Heather Killough Walden writes a good supernatural story, with a strong erotic theme running through it. Murders, werewolves, arson, sex and of course a Harley Davison motorbike (well it wouldn't be an HKW story without one!). A potent mix.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The woman who sees ghosts is pulled further into the world of demons, 25 Dec. 2010
This is the second book in the Whisperings series, based around the main character Tiff, an investigator with the ability to see and talk to the ghosts of the violently killed at the site of their death. Now having quit as consultant investigator working for the local police, she has set up as a private investigator partnered (both professionally and romantically) with the very man foisted on her in her last case for the police, a man who is actually a being from a parallel world, a being colloquially called a demon.

In this novel, Tiff takes umbrage when her partner Royal takes on a case without asking her, and for clients who seriously creep her (and her dog and resident ghost housemates) out. Clients, furthermore, who make Royal nervous too. Who are demons to a demon?

I stumbled across the first book in the series ("Along Came a Demon") and was so impressed that I promptly bought and devoured this one. I found it a little slow to get into the mood of the tale but when it does it swept me along with even more alacrity than the first novel. The tensions between all the characters are handled superbly and Linda Welch drops in just enough clues and revelations to make you thirst for more.

Thoroughly recommended, and I'm already impatient for the third in the series to come out!
