Butterfly Swords is up on NetGalley


Which means people are reading it. *swoons*

Actually, it’s pretty darn cool. I didn’t know much about NetGalley before, but apparently it’s the best thing since sliced bread for reviewers. It allows reviewers, librarians, journalists and other professional readers to request digital galleys directly from the publisher.

The Perfect Little Nibble: Two erotic romance reviews

I love reading outside of my genre and I’ve always admired a tightly written story. I recently had the opportunity to read and review two wonderfully crafted shorts. There really is an art to writing something with so few words that has so much impact.

“Jesse’s Hands” by Emily Ryan-Davis


Emily Ryan-Davis’ “Jesse’s Hands” is a captivating exploration of unfulfilled desire, control, and the psychology of loneliness and longing. The heroine’s sense of desperation throughout her one time only rendezvous with Jesse is utterly heart-wrenching. The story gives a rare look into the delicate and powerful balance between domination and submission that is difficult to achieve. Ms. Davis’ writing is an example of the sum being greater than the parts — not a single gorgeous word is wasted. I couldn’t help but compare it to the beauty and dark complexity of AnaÏs Nin; a work that invades your body and mind.

“Dining In” by Elise Logan dining-in-final

Elise Logan’s “Dining In” portrays a well-written, delightfully sensual encounter — doors wide open. This is the sort of scene you might fantasize about while sitting at your desk at work. “Take charge” Adam fulfills Carrie’s every fantasy. The story cuts to the good part, putting you right in this very intimate and sexy moment between two characters that is all about desire and wish fulfillment.
