WOW!!!! It's been a while since I've read any Black Swan & maybe I had forgotten just how much I love this series, but I REALLY LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!! I have been a fan of Victoria Danann since I first read her first book & this book has done nothing to change that.

The characters and the relationships in this book are well developed and I have to say this may be my favorite book in the entire series. I really want to say so much more but I don't want to give anything away. I will say that I

Yet another great book by Victoria!! So hard to not spoil anything, this was a book that really made me think. I thought oh my gosh she did not. Yep she did and then I thought about it. This was a great book I loved the plot and the twist that she put in. I think this book ended like it needed to :0)

Spectacular! I will continue to keep reading Mrs. Danann's books for as long as she writes them because she never fails to write a damn good book! Character growth was great, the ending was completely unexpected! Highly highly recommend!!

How do I tell you all how wonderful this book was without giving away spoilers? Not going to be easy. In my opinion this was Victoria’s Best Book Ever. (To Date). It made me reach deep inside & pulled at all of my emotions. Yes I am a very emotional person. But it still reached to the deepest regions & grabbed me & pulled them to the surface. It made me Laugh out loud. Yes I did snort!

One of the most powerful of Ms Danann's books to date...seeing Rosie's growth throughout the story is quite heartwarming and promises to leave the door open for her to capture more greatness. This author has a certain knack to bring out feelings that many would overlook as secondary to lesser characters. The appearance of some of the characters from the Black Swan Knights was simply delightful and added so much depth to the story overall. I can only sigh now as I anxiously awaiting the next segm ...more

Victoria Danann has again given us a book with characters that jump off the pages and into our hearts, The world she has created in Exiled is unique, well thought out and exciting.
This story flows swiftly with heart pounding danger, new love and surprises and with heart shattering consequences.
Rosie’s coming of age story left me totally immersed and turning pages at lightning speed, right up to the unexpected and emotional final pages.
Victoria has begun another 5 star series and I cannot wait to

Carnal is about Rosie. She is the daughter of Storm and Litha in the original Black Swan series. She is part sex demon, part witch, and part human. She was only born 14 months ago, with all her parents memories, and she can traverse the passes to other realms. She is not a baby, but quickly with in a few months of birth grew into a woman of a guessed physical age of 22. Here in lies the problem, she has the knowledge, the physical body, but not the experience of living. So when her boyfriend/fir ...more

I loved this book and the first thought I had when I finished this book was, Ummm. Now Ms Danann has taken me many places and adventures through her books but one thing that she has never been able accomplished until now, is to make me cry. For me parts of this book were very emotional and may have made more of an impression on my mind and heart. I enjoyed meeting the new characters and getting to know some of the old ones better. I can’t wait to see where Ms Danann will take this storyline. Thi ...more

If you are looking for an author who gives you such emotionally developed characters that you not just lust for them but outright fall in love with them, then Victoria Danann is that writer. "Carnal" will bring you into a world of hybrids and humans and through Rosie (Sir Storm and Litha's daughter) you will experience a coming of age....Bravo, Ms. Danann for giving us this emotional roller coaster ride.....I just needed one of those measure sticks to see if I could ride it.... it!

Rosie Storm turns to her angel friend, Kellareal, asking for a place to stay away from her own dimension. A place where she can become part of the community, make friends and sort out who she is. There are so many things to learn. Rosie has the combined memories of both of her parents but she is only 14 months old. She

This book was amazing! I already loved Elora Rose Storm (Rosie) from the other books, but this story made me get to know exactly how her mind was, how hard it is to control her special talents and see the world how she sees it. I fell in love with all the new characters as well as old. I felt deep sympathy for what she had to go through. The only regret I have, is that I read it way too fast. I will definitely say that this is now my new favorite from Victoria Dannan! Hands done 5 stars!

The book is a continuation of Rosie's story from the "The Knights of the Black Swan" series. Rosie left her home dimension with the aid of a friend of her mother's. She winds up being placed with a group of hybrids who call themselves the Exiles.

This book is Rosie's story of her finding maturity. The story takes the reader through a whirlwind of emotions. By the time I finished the novel I was emotionally exhausted. This book is intricate. As always, Victoria puts you through the gambit of situ

I finished this one a few days ago. I still can't get it off my mind. and I'm not ready to move on. Victoria Danann has a way of pulling into her books so much that I feel like I am a part of it.

LOVE LOVED!! What a beautiful tragic coming of age tale! Kudos to Victoria for writing a sweet love story with a twist at the end worthy of me throwing my Kindle at a wall!! Carnal is sexy and cocky - the perfect man for Rosie or so it seems. Rosie`s powers are growing and it`s going to be scary good when she learns to control them ! I cannot wait for the next chapter of her tale. Love Deliverance and Kellareal - just sayin` !!

Love the world building of this author. I have read her whole Black Swan series and have come to expect the unexpected from her. This is paranormal after all. But this book....W..T..F..! So not what I was thinking I was going to get! i can't even give you much more than this without giving things away.

I had a hard time with this one. Ms. Danann is a great story teller and I once again got lost in her latest book and had a hard time putting it down. In fact, I don't think I put it down once I started reading.

Don't get me wrong, this is a good book, great even but I just couldn't get over the ending. It didn't feel like it belonged with the first 90% of the book. Plus there was a cliffie, God do I hate those! But at least we get a good tease as to the next book, which I know I'll pick up the m

These Black Knight Swan stories are fascinating. Previously, it had been said that Elora Rose Storm was predestinated to be special, one of a kind and very powerful. After her heartbreaking relationship with Glenn, the one she thought preferred the job instead of her, Elora Rose Storm (Rosie) needed a break to get over Glenn’s decision. Years ago, the angel Kellareal had begun a special project thinking that he could kill two birds with one stone and when Rosie summoned him, seeing Rosie predica ...more

Where on earth, or in any dimension, do I start with this book? It is a continuation of the Knights of the Black Swan world, but set in a different world, with different characters, beings, and problems. Rosie, the daughter of Litha and Storm, ends up there after she asks "Lally" for somewhere to hide whilst she recovers from Glen leaving her. With firm instructions on just what she can and can't do, Kellareal takes her to the Exiled, where Rosie feels more at home than she is used to. She finds ...more

Carnal is a spin off from The Black Swan series. It was great meeting a whole cast of new characters to fall in love with, and also get to know Rosie a lot better.
Rosie asked Kellareal to find her a place to escape to, after her break up with Glen. He takes her to a dimension where the Exiled live. They are Hybrids he rescued from extermination; it is here that Rosie comes into her own. It is the perfect place for her to grow up emotionally, and with the influence of the Exiled’s leader Free and

Victoria Danann has done it again. This is a story that pulls you in and makes you care for each and every character.

Rosie is suffering. She has just broken up with her lover and she realizes it was mostly her own fault even if she won't admit it. She asks her friend Kellareal to find her a place where she can hide out and nurse her wounds. He takes her to a little project of his in another dimension and places her among the Exiled. Their race was about to be destroyed by the humans who had gen

Victoria Danann has written a deeply moving story with Carnal: The Beast Who Loved Me. When Rosie needs a time out from life, she is whisked to another dimension very different from her own. This is her story about growing up, learning to love and working towards a cause much greater than herself.

This book is well written with the amazing depth of character that Ms. Danann always brings to her writing. While it is not a cliff hanger, it definitely leaves you wanting to read about what comes next

Carnal is the first book I have read by Victoria Danann. I honestly have to say I wasn't sure if I would be able to get into it. I was a little overwhelmed at first since I had never read her books before this one, but the author does a great summary of events leading up to this point, and this book. With that being said.
