REVIEW Funny, sexy and sweet... this book was a little morsel of yummy. From the very funny start when this couple first meets to their sweet reunion, Tariq and Kiera just fit. There's no incredibly unbelievable falling love but rather a gradual feeling of connection. I liked this author's take on bringing two people together. Both main characters were well-developed and highly likable. The quirkiness and originality even in the tiniest aspects of the book made it a standout for me. Loved it.

I would love to find more leading men like him. Amber’s character is a firecracker. I was impressed with her grasp of tough ideas and her tenacious nature. There were several secondary characters, and they all kept this story flowing at the perfect pace. The sexual scenes were different, and I am afraid to say too much for fear of giving too much away. Everything about this story was amazing and I highly recommend Worth Dying For as a very entertaining erotic romance!
Soul Bound is nicely written contemporary paranormal with warlocks and magi. Ms. Ryder kept me entertained and almost giddy with anticipation of what happens next for Jess and Nathan. I really enjoyed Soul Bound and I hope there are more stories involving the Magi.
Soul Bound was a fast-paced read. I found the characters and the plot enjoyable. The sex was romantic and sweet. ...paranormal and erotic romance readers will enjoy this quick, sexy escape. 4 Tea Cups!
Do you wish that your partner could hear your every thought and experience your every feeling and sensation during lovemaking, creating a perfectly symbiotic erotic event driven ever higher by the hunger and responses of one other? This unusual love story contains that and other exciting and surprising details of mythical and fantasy fare. This riveting tale grabbed me instantly and sent me on a breathtaking and sometimes astounding journey with its unique ideas and suspenseful romantic tension.
This believable and entertaining tale has magic, mythic and rare quality romance, mystery and a perfect dose of sex so sensually hot that I was transported magically into the story itself! I couldn't get the whole reading experience out of my head, and was moved to ask Ms. Ryder, 'Why, oh why did it have to end so soon?'
My advice to everyone is, go get a copy of, Soul Bound. I'm sure you will be glad you did.
5 Star review from JERR - 'Worth Dying For is, hands down, the best story of the summer!'
Worth Dying For is, hands down, the best story of the summer! I loved these characters, the setting, and the undeniable bond that these two forge. Malachi is an amazing character. I would love to find more leading men like him. Amber’s character is a firecracker. I was impressed with her grasp of tough ideas and her tenacious nature. There were several secondary characters, and they all kept this story flowing at the perfect pace. The sexual scenes were different, and I am afraid to say too much for fear of giving too much away. Everything about this story was amazing and I highly recommend Worth Dying For as a very entertaining erotic romance!
Amber's life has been turned upside down. On a trip to study the native flora on an island with an overzealous co-worker, disaster happens, and Amber is almost killed by a landslide. Though she can't remember a thing, her co-worker swears a giant with super-human strength saved her. Knowing too much can be deadly, and before Amber can think, her co-worker is murdered and a giant of a man tells her he is her only chance to live.
Bane can't believe he has risked everything for Amber. She may remind him of his dead wife, but there is something else, something he doesn't understand. His kind will do anything to hide their existence from the world, and his interest in Amber unleashes a sequence of events that will probably end with the death of both of them. Bane will do anything to save Amber, even if it means going back to the vampiress who made him and who disgusts him beyond all else.
Being a huge Luxie Ryder fan, I was thrilled when I found out she had a new book available, and as usual she does not disappoint. This is a story with an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride and plenty of va-va-va-voom. Worth Dying For will spice up your day and heat up your nights with its sexy tale of the paranormal. The characters are well-written with a wonderful depth that will entrance the reader.
I especially enjoyed Bane. He is such a strong alpha character with a little bit of a soft side to make him very likable as well as sexy as hell. His devotion to right the wrong he has committed is memorable. I love a good, strong character with a bit of badness, and Bane fits that description wonderfully. The interaction between Amber and Bane is both sexy and engaging. They both are unsure of what life is going to deal them, and they are afraid to admit how they really feel.
I continue to enjoy Ms. Ryder's style of writing and hope she keeps the stories coming.(less)

Rating: 5+ Bookwenches Keeper: I also love the fact that Luxie Ryder can fit three exciting, passionate and sweet love scenes in a book that is only fifty-six pages, along with a complete and well told story. She didn’t skimp on setting the scenes, or making her characters realistic, and I never felt like I was missing any part of the story. That is a sign of a great writer. Dance like Nobody’s Watching is a funny, fast paced and light hearted story that was a hoot to read. Well done Ms. Ryder; well done.
TwoLipsReviews Rating: 5 Lips Recommended Read: The chemistry between Sherrie and Ty is very sexy. There is magnetism between the two that they cannot possibly ignore. When they do come together in intimate moments, the sex is combustible. I really enjoyed reading Dance Like Nobody’s Watching. It was a well-written, fast-paced read. I was so engrossed in the great storyline that Ms. Ryder had spun, that I didn’t want it to end. I would definitely recommend this book to lovers of the contemporary romance genre. So, if you are looking for a new romance to read, I can wholeheartedly say that Dance Like Nobody’s Watching is a good place to start if you like romances with happy endings.
Dark Diva Reviews: This was a wonderful short story sure to make even your seasoned romance reader pant and sigh. Dance Like Nobody’s Watching by Luxie Ryder is sexy and fun. She made this book flow smoothly and gave enough information to snag your attention. Ty is a sexy, sweet guy in which I only once wanted to slap him. LOL He’s a dancer for a TV dance show and can have any lady he wants, except the one he truly wants. Can he convince her that he wants only her? Sherrie is a strong heroine, which I found myself rooting for throughout the story. Her disability did not stop her. So when the sexy Ty came on to her, what’s a girl to do? The plot of the story was heart touching, but every great romance needs a bad girl to stir the pot. Diana was a true contender. Will she make it or will Sherri wise-up to her tricks? You can only find out if you read Dance Like Nobody’s Watching. Ms. Ryder, thank you for this story; your fans will love you for it. Rated 4 1/2 Delightful Divas by Deb!
CoffeeTimeRomance Reviews 4 Cups: Dance like Nobody’s Watching is a beautiful and soulful tale. I loved how Ms. Ryder added sensuality, romance, and humor to this novel. It gives it a quality that I find endearing and had me turning pages as fast as I could. The way Sherrie fights with Ty about her disability, only to realize how she is belittling herself, makes this book seem that much more realistic and gives the reader the chance to relate to her. This book is one hot commodity and something you can definitely look forward to enjoying.
"Sacrifice by Luxie Ryder is a spicy little vampire story to set your pulse a racing. This book has an unbelievable cast of characters, and a plotline sure to please any paranormal reader. The backdrop makes me feel as if I am there among all the action.
You have two amazing leads, Hallie a sweet loving gal who lost her heart to the new stranger that came to town. Once she knows his true secret will she stay or turn and run? Hallie actually has a take no crap side to her that makes me happy as a clam. I mean…come on she needs to be strong with what is coming for her. Oh then there is Ethan, YUM! Even before his vampage he was one hot commodity. With this awesome lead in and one evil Vampire named Silas is there any wonder why this short book is a spine chiller.
