Growing up a devoted reader, Laurie Ryan immersed herself in the diverse works of authors like Tolkien and Woodiwiss. She is passionate about every aspect of a book: beginning, middle, and end.

This Wandering Heart by Janine Rosche

What an awesome entry into the lifestyle. I love the beginning. Horror camp! What a hoot. The attraction between Sierra and Max is strong and sexy. The story feels like it’s true to the lifestyle and is well-explained. But honestly, there’s a lot of ...more

Oh my gosh. This story was hot. April and Logan are both sparring and irrevocably drawn to each other from the get go. The emotion is high and the story both wicked and emotional. Loved it!

Way to roll sci-fi, steampunk, and romance into one gloriously satisfying story. This was a well-developed world with memorable characters and relationships I bought into at every step of the way. I’m a fan.
