I don't know who this is exactly. He is a cover model for romantic and erotic fiction. What I do know is that he is most certainly a treasure.

I found a review for The Xander Hill Experiment today that struck me for the use of that word. Treasure.
Such a pretty word. Thank you.



I was thinking about love today and the fact that when faced with it my answer was always…

So quick from the lips…said so boldly and with so much fear at the same time. It the pain we try to avoid, along with the surrender. We put up shields the Enterprise would envy to guard our poor aching hearts…

But I’m a faker…and I think my stories tell on me…

The picture above has little to do with the actual story and more to do with the inspiration in which the story was conceived. Chosen is…like that.

When I know more about the release date and things like that I’ll be sure to inform. But for now I am just content to say that I am thrilled to be working at the Vault. They are an amazing, impressive group of people.
And that I hope that I came close to touching the beauty of my inspiration…


Horrific Introspection

New reviews are nice, particularly on days when you want to...I don't know...ram your head into your computer screen for various reasons.

The Xander Hill Experiment is one of my favorite stories because it involves zombies. Lots and Lots of zombies. I'm pretty sure I was weaned on Night of the Living Dead. I am absolutely thrilled that someone likes this little nightmare as much as I do.

"The Xander Hill Experiment is one of the most hair-raising, barbaric and strangest horror stories I have ever read. The extent of gruesome gore produced by the zombie and survivors is enough to make most peoples' stomachs do a couple of uneasy rolls of queasiness. The main heroine, Laura, has her good and bad qualities. Yes, she is a cold-hearted killer, although her targets were very sick, twisted predators themselves.The good quality is that deep inside of her remains a scrap of humanity that wants to help Number 37. In spite of that, Laura must fight her own inner demons while trying to live in this horror infested "prison" she is trapped in. Dr. Bradbury is utterly insane without a doubt, but you must wonder about his experiment. Yes, the world as we know it has disappeared and reappeared as a twisted, kill or be killed type. One has to think hard about the murders; who is worse - the mindless zombie or the insanely, frightened people doing butchering for a huge range of reasons? This was a twist on movies like " Night of the Living Dead". I am a big fan of horror books and I found this book to be a top notch delivery of what I wanted for the evening. It was a scary, shudder and shiver marathon of twisted excitement. I savored each and every page of the book until the last page. The Xander Hill Experiment is a winner for those that do not mind reading books that push the envelope of horror.
Romantic Dreams
*Taming the Beast*
"Taming the Beast is a wonderful dark romance that will have all the readers looking for the beast within themselves. Raquel Taylor has a very unique way of weaving this love story, and she brings out the animal in all of her characters in this fabulous tale. I truly enjoyed reading Taming the Beast; Ms. Taylor has taken some of the most loved fairy tales and put her own amazing twist on telling them. Donatien fights the beast within him and Cher must find the Beast within her before it is too late or all is lost. Add in the great supporting characters Ms. Taylor has written, and you'll be praying for a sequel to this wonderful love story. Readers, go and get this book and discover the beast within you!"

I have no idea what to say in here, though, once upon a time, I kept a diary quite religiously. It was filled with all kinds of weird. I think I'll post the review I got for The Cambion's Kiss.

Lady Exotica is a love slave in sexual servitude to Kaliban, crown prince of Oea. As such, she should not have any emotions as they are forbidden. Because she does, it causes Kaliban to cast her from his bed. When she overhears a conversation about the existence of Kaliban’s brother, Cambion, and Kaliban's desire to eliminate him, she sees a way to gain her freedom.

ambion is gaining some success in California as a model for romance covers. Having had many a bed partner that left him empty, he could not figure out what he was missing - until Exotica appeared. At once he sensed the excitement that he had unknowingly craved in this gorgeous woman. And then they took a dive off of a balcony overlooking the ocean, and things were never the same.

Exotica and Cambion enter the world of master and slave, both uncertain of their own motivations. The pleasure/pain sensations blur the lines between the two, leaving only confusion and great passion. Would Exotica’s plan work to secure her freedom, or would Cambion’s kisses capture her heart?

Ms. Raquel Taylor has captured the essence of BDSM in this story. Although I am not personally familiar with this subject, I am open minded enough to understand it. Exotica displays a great deal of compassion in her actions toward Cambion, while Cambion shows all of the confusion of the uninitiated. Their growing passion negates the punishment inherent in this type of relationship, making for a great romance. For those readers with open minds, here is something different. I really liked this book.

Every story needs a beginning, and I'm going to assume that for every blog as well. This review is a lovely beginning to this blog:)
