“This was a nice entertaining novella written well and with humor by Ms. Dumont. I found the main character. Cynthia, to be likeable and connectable. I enjoyed the story of love and connection, as well as the passion displayed in the romantic scenes. All in all a well-written short read. I would read more concerning this character or by this author.
I ranked it 3 stars because it was more a novella than novel, so not as much story as I would have liked.” --Janet Kinsella Net Galley Read More
“Pick this up if you want stories that are full of drama and easy to read. I got hooked and raced through the book in a few hours. A nice variety of crazy people . . . my favorite people to read about. You will put this book down feeling extremely well adjusted. It’s like a collection of little soap operas. Favorite story — Forget My Daughter-I’ll Show You Ecstasy.” — L. Gordon, Amazon Read More

Look out, vampires—here come the Nephilim.

You don’t have to know the backstory to Nephilim to be drawn into this page-turner. All you need to know is that they are mentioned a couple of times in the Bible, and that they pre-date human existence on Earth. Read More

“I just finished the second book of this series and can’t wait for the third. I liked this book even better than the first. I think the author uses this novel to push the story outside the standard genre of vampire literature. There are castles and catacombs, but no skulking, no attacks on humans, very little blood. The author’s vampires are more interested in their own world politics and power struggles than chasing down humans. Read More
“I really enjoyed this book, but I connected so much with a particular story, “Dance of Seduction”…It was really inspiring”- Chell, Amazon Read More
“People are always telling women to just accept themselves the way they are, yet we live in a world where being tall, thin and beautiful is just expected of us! Thank god for these stories. They actually tell the truth about what goes through women’s minds about their appearance and what we wish we could be! Bravo!” -Enrique Smith, Amazon Read More
“These bite-sized stories are SO juicy, I couldn’t stop reading!… These stories are so scandalous, [they made] me think I’m the one that’s chasing that forbidden love.”
