About the Author

Selina Kray is the nom de plume of an author and English editor. Professionally she has covered all the artsy-fartsy bases, having worked in a bookstore, at a cinema, in children’s television, and in television distribution, up to her latest incarnation as a subtitle editor and grammar nerd (though she may have always been a grammar nerd). A self-proclaimed geek and pop culture junkie who sometimes manages to pry herself away from the review sites and gossip blogs to write fiction of her own, she is a voracious consumer of art with both a capital and lowercase A. Selina’s aim is to write genre-spanning romances with intricate plots, complex characters, and lots of heart. Whether she has achieved this goal is for you, gentle readers, to decide. At present she is hard at work on future novels at home in Montreal, Quebec, with her wee corgi serving as both foot warmer and in-house critic.

This book is the most fun I had reading this year! It's exciting, sexy, entertaining, engaging, and the characters, both main and secondary, are absolutely delightful. The historical period is so well researched too. The mood reminded me of the first Magpies book by KJ Charles - hotness and fun plus a dangerous, dark mystery, and just as well written. Can't wait for the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVED this book to bits!!! 19 Jun. 2017
By AC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm a huge fan of Victorian Mysteries, in fact it's my favorite genre. Ms. Kray is without a doubt a very talented writer. Her first book Like Stars was a beautiful story, The Fangs of Scavo although very different assuredly didn't disappoint me!

The ambiance as well as ALL the characters, the complex mystery and the dialog make this novel shine. Tim and Hiero are well-written and have definitely their own distinct voices. They are layered, deeply human and a fascinating pair! I like the way they dance around their attraction and I like the tension and the undeniable chemistry between the two protagonists. The author really took the time to develop her characters, she did a beautiful job of showing, not telling.

The mystery is well-crafted, it's gripping, absorbing and highly enjoyable. You find yourself effortlessly immersed in a thoroughly Victorian atmosphere.

I'm eagerly waiting for the next Stoker & Bash Mystery and I can't wait to know more about Tim and Hiero because Ms. Kray has only scratched the surface. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars My expectations were just blown away! 11 Jun. 2017
By Rina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
4.5* Review written for Love Bytes Reviews.

There’s just something amazing about having all your expectations about something blown away and this book did that in spades. When I first started reading, I honestly expected Hieronymus Bash to be something like Sherlock Holmes (the Robert Downey Jr version because he was more fun) with a dash of the irreverent rogue thrown in to help tick off the officers of the Yard. What I got was so very different but so very good!

There are lots of things I could say about Hieronymus Bash but that would also be giving things away that are best left to be discovered as you read. What I will say is that Hiero is a unique, highly entertaining individual who thrives on attention and practically lives for the times he’s in the spotlight. Underneath all that, however, he’s also an incredibly caring man who can’t help but lend a hand to someone in desperate need of one. Timothy Stoker, on the other hand, is considered quite ordinary and, unlike Bash, spends his time fading into the shadows so as not to draw attention to himself. These two men, who should be all rights be on opposite sides of most everything, instead find themselves drawn together first by circumstance and then by a kind of helpless mutual regard that later blooms into more. Both men have their strengths and weaknesses but what drew me to them both as individuals and as a couple were the mysteries they’re each hiding. Bash’s back story is hinted at over the course of the book while Stoker’s own past is more blatantly put forward as an explanation into his choices. In either case, there are questions left unanswered that I’m really looking forward to delving into in future stories.

The mystery itself was fantastic; there was a great variety of characters, all of them fleshed out beautifully, that added to my enjoyment while keeping me constantly guessing as to who the antagonist was. The historical details were pretty spot on, the action scenes were a blast to read, and I found myself completely in love with the descriptions and the way everything was just presented. (Seriously, it was all really good!) By the end of the story I’d changed my mind numerous times as to who the culprit actually was and why and I’m thrilled to say that I was wrong on all counts.

This book was both a complete surprise and a complete joy to read; I was so engrossed in the story and the characters that I was super sad to see the book end. If you enjoy historical mysteries and are looking for a book that features characters that make their own way outside of the expectations of society, I’d give this one a look. I will totally be eagerly awaiting the sequel in the meantime!
4.0 out of 5 stars is a Scotland Yard detective who is pretty much on his last chance 23 Jun. 2017

4-1/2 Stars
Timothy Stoker, or as he becomes mostly known as "Kip", is a Scotland Yard detective who is pretty much on his last chance. That's not to say he's a bad detective, quite the opposite but he's fallen on the wrong side of his superiors and if he fails at this case well, he knows they are just waiting for him to fail. Hieronymus "Hiero" Bash, is a detective in his own right, well truth is he's more of a showman surrounded by those who do the detecting. When Bash becomes Stoker's case another one falls in their lap that brings the two together.

The Fangs of Scavo has a little bit of everything including lovely detail to history, which is an important factor for me when reading historicals. I won't touch on the mystery because I don't want to risk giving anything away but I will say that I loved how the case was at the center of the story but it didn't overshadow the relationship between Kip and Hiero, matter of fact it threads not only their relationship but other relationships together perfectly. One thing I really loved was that despite the elements of the case, Stoker and Bash may be strong characters in their own right but its together that they really become the people their meant to be, even if they are reluctant to see it. Sometimes when there is as much banter between the two main characters as there is with Kip and Hiero, it can take away from the chemistry but in Scavo it only heightens the connection between them, showcasing how comedy and mystery can go hand in hand when done correctly.

With The Fangs of Scavo, Selina Kray has become the newest author to go on to my authors-to-watch list. I can't wait to see where Stoker & Bash go from here, I have a feeling this is going to be a fun and exciting new series with tons of potential that I look forward to visiting again and again.
