It is great praise because honestly, this book has so much more to it than a quick fuck, it has story lines leading up to great sex, then the cool down, it doesn't just end.

Red Velvet and Absinthe - Paranormal Erotic Romance

Some of the best paranormal erotic stories out there! This is the kind of material I want to read, not Twilight

This sounds like an excellent place for a story to form.

I agree, that makes it so much more interesting! The characters really seem vivid and stick with you long after you go to bed. I really like the second story the best! I don't remember the title, but it's about a warewolf that gets found by a researcher

I try to create books that have some lasting value. And with the talent in this one, I feel that I've achieved that.

I hate to say it, but for reading by candlelight, even with erotica, I might need a large-print version. Or a magnifying glass. No, make it an opera glass, or monocle; not too efficient, but with a touch of retro glamor.

I think atmosphere is essential for setting a mood- with erotica, mood can be key and with Gothic romance, of uber importance.

I loved the second story. It was so much imagery in it. But I have to say I love the entire book.

I fell in love with the cover when Mitzi sent it to me, it's incredibly haunting and evocative isn't it?

They all have female names, too, I think? EXcepting Rudolph, and perhaps Donner.
