Now, if that’s not enough to get your curiosity juices flowing, I don’t know what will. But if you want to find out what happens, you’ll just have to turn the pages for yourself! However, I will say it was well worth the read. It’s my first time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed.

The story had every element a good story should have. A solid plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well-illustrated scenes that make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that’s something I really look for in a good book. The erotica is accomplished in the delivery of exciting and titillating prose. From mild illusions through detailed, sexy scenes, the concept is wonderfully delivered in truly amazing writing.

Captivating and commendable, this work had me immersed from the beginning. It’s an emotional fiction interwoven with sexual desire. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. There are plenty of attention-grabbing moments in this page turner that will take the reader on a truly compelling and fascinating journey!

It’s one of those books that come along occasionally that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader.

If this book is anything to go by, I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Sila Long in the future. It also has a distinctly cinematic feel to it and I could easily see it being adapted for a made-for-TV movie. This has all the hallmarks of making a great series. A well-deserved five stars from me.

 

 

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

In an interview Sila Long responds to a question:
Why would a holder of a Ph.D. write erotic romance novels?

“Why not?… Here’s what I know– there’s something about a love story that can just take our breath away…but it can also provoke, inspire, and empower. I aim to create that kind of reading experience through sweet, magical, and powerful tantalizing romantic tales surrounded by interesting backdrops, appealing diverse characters, with intrigue and crazy love. Plus,
I had a blast writing these novels.
