Lady Raven RAVE!
This was a good read the characters Garon and Maddie were sexy together. The minute the story starts it pulls you I. The way GAron and Maddie came together in his need chambers was a turn on. Maddie needed to consummate her marriage to Garon by doing this she had to deceive him. The first night she knew what he was but it did not scare her off as both grew closer together and more in love. Good read, sexy characters, a very sexy blood wanting vampire and great sex made this book readable for me. ...more

Poorly written or as I said in my status updates, it’s as if the book was written as a play or movie. Here’s an example “Desiree’s other line rang. “Hold on, It’s Brandon.” She’s reached to click the phone. “Sparkle are you sure? Call me later ok.””

The author didn’t even tell us she what Sparkle said, Desiree was clicking over and the reader assumes she speaking to the other party however she breaks left and says “Sparkle are you sure”. What???

And what was the purpose of her ex-husband coming ba

Not for me. This was one of the most boring books I've ever read. It has so much potential, but it feel like the author was "telling me" what happened instead of "showing me."

Disorganized. Telling me what was going on, gah. Make me feel it. Show me. Organize the story & THEN publish it.

Just not a good book.

1.5 stars -- ok, a major reason this has such a low ranking from me is b/c I'm obviously not the target there was nothing to connect me to the characters. But since I also felt that the writing was really low grade and perfunctory (kind of like how I would write, which is why I'm not a writer), I figured I could share that. It's like some of those tv Christmas movies that come out. Some are not bad, but some are just so low budget that you can't even watch it. Like, you can see wh ...more

This book and this author deserves nothing less than a five star rating, easily!! I am an avid reader, as in daily, and this is the first time I have found a read with nearly all aspects of the different genres I so dearly love. There was a smooth mix of Christian romance, suspense, mystery, psycho terror, the whole ball of wax. The characters were well developed, the story line was believable, but the grammar and lay out of the text was a slig
