Review by Lyndell Williams
THE WOLF’S CONCUBINE
By Erin St. Charles
$3.99, pp 330, Kindle

Imagine, you’re this hot wolf shifter detective taking care of business when you run dead smack into your fated mate. You know, the one person to whom you are intrinsically linked and hot and bothered about on sight.

On top of all of that, she’s smokin’! You immediately want her, but the problem is that she’s not feeling you at the same level. Well, she may be feeling something, but it’s not the whole “sealed to each other forever” thing. What’s a man-wolf to do?

That’s Phelan’s dilemma in Erin St. Charles’s paranormal romance The Wolf’s Concubine. From the time he rescues the damsel in distress, Lola, the wolf-shifter-detective wants her—forever.

***SPOILERS AHEAD***  Now, Let’s do this. Continue reading “BOOK REVIEW: The Wolf’s Concubine-When a Good Woman Won’t Sit Still”

Some of the best romance novels are the ones with the rawest passion. Not always. Some authors take primal lust and make it gross.

But when well-done, an author can tap into readers’ baser sensual instincts, reminding them that just wanting someone isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

That is what Keta Kendric does in her novel Twisted Minds.  From the moment main character Aaron sees Megan serving up grub to his father and the rest of the August Knights Motorcycle Club cretins, he’s immediately charged with a desire to have her.

I can’t believe it’s been over three years since I began uploading book reviews on YouTube.  I loved getting in front of my cell phone and letting my teeny tiny audience of watchers know about the great Muslim fiction that authors were releasing to the world.

Unfortunately, life shifted, and I haven’t been able to do a review for a while, but I think I’ll start again. So, I’ve decided to share one of my favorites this week.

Her Justice by Nasheed Jaxson is unique because it is the first romance I’ve read written by an African American Muslim man. Continue reading “BOOK REVIEW REBOOT: Her Justice – When Everyone is Playing Head Games”

DAMAGED GOODS
By Talia Hibbert
$1.99, pp 198, Kindle

Laura

Sometimes it takes turning back to move forward. We all make mistakes, and in Damaged Goods, by Talia Hibbert, Laura Burne made a big one in the form of her husband, Daniel. After years of abuse, she finally jets and makes her way back to Beesly—pregnant and alone.

The small seaside town is supposed to offer Laura solace from her torment as well as room to think about being a single mother to a child whose father is less than thrilled about its existence. However, she barely has a chance to swallow back nausea and make sure Daniel isn’t ready to pounce when she runs into her old flame, Samir Bianchi.

BOOK REVEIW – Loving HER WILDEST DREAMS

VIDEO REVIEW PICI started reading some of the short stories featured in the AMBW romance anthology Shades of AMBW. Check out my video review of one of my favorite stories “Her Wildest Dreams” by Love Journey.

I enjoyed Love Journey’s vampire erotic fiction. Unlike so many stories featuring the paranormal bloodsucker, she made sure that the sensual exchange between the vamp and the human he desired was consensual. There was no “glamming” or “hypnotizing.”
