About the author

Zenobia Renquist

55 books74 followers
Zenobia Renquist is the alter-ego of D. Renee Bagby. Call her Zen or Renee, she answers to both. Air Force brat turned Air Force wife, she was born in Europe, has lived in Japan and in several states of the US, including Virginia, Florida, North Carolina, Texas, California, Maryland and Hawaii.

She moved a lot in her younger years and remembers all too well being the new kid in fish-out-of-water situations. But those experiences only made her better able to adapt, as well they gave her a love of travel, preferring road trips over flying.

Turning her favorite pastime into her career, Renee loves to build worlds and torture her characters for the enjoyment of her readers. She can’t fill everyday with writing alone, and also enjoys watching anime, reading manga, crocheting, knitting (yarn and mail), and binging shows on Netflix. She’s a Whovian (David Tennant for the win!), a trekkie (DS9 because Odo rocked), and a fan of pretty much every Marvel live action movie and DCU animated movie.

She has a wacky imagination and tends to write all over the place. In order to keep up, she only asks one thing—Leave Your Reality Behind to Discover Different and Unique Romance & Erotica.

Another great release from Zenobia Renquist who also writes as D. Renee Bagby. Her stories are always unique and her world-building puts you right in the setting. CHAMOMILE NIGHTS is an interracial, paranormal story full of magic and erotic romance. Enjoy!

The Romance Review

Erotic, steamy and unexpected, this is adelightful magical romance with a twist of the Twilight Zone. How have I not read books by Ms. Renquist before? This short story is just the right length and a delicious sweet romance. If this is the start of a series, I will devour every single one. There is hope as this book is denoted as part of Café Midnight series. I'm betting this collection will be like a decadent box of chocolates. Each one is a surprise - rich and tasty.

In this first one, Patrice is an overworked and stressed out wedding coordinator. Her boss and owner of the company is a creative artist. But it's really Patrice who works her magic to make a bride's wedding day a dream come true. The wedding business is a delicate balance of logistics and multiple contractors who sometimes drop the ball. It's up to Patrice to make it work or her company's reputation goes down. Sometimes the only way to decompress from the craziness is to get laid. It definitely isn't some crappy message of "Breathe and stay calm". Screw that stupid patronizing mantra. What Patrice needs is a man to help her unwind and kick the happy endorphins into overdrive. With such a busy schedule, how would she ever be able to fit him in, literally and figuratively?

This is where the Café Midnight comes into play. This magical place makes just the right tea to soothe Patrice and delivered by the sexy waiter, Kai. From that moment on, this story goes into the Twilight Erotic Zone and it is so good. I love the sex scenes. I love the interactions between Patrice and Kai. By not exactly explaining this world or how the magic works, it makes this tale a bit more mysterious. Sketchy world building usually doesn't work but in this case, it is just right. I can't wait to see what comes next. This erotic romance is recommended to romance readers who believe in a little magic.
