Urban Fantasy / Erotic Romance

Book Synopsis

Sometimes the monster that haunted you as a child truly is real…

All it took was one phone call to bring Nicole Jones’s life crumbling down around her. Now a nightmare she thought she’d left in her past is back, and he’s not exactly bringing her candy and flowers. While fleeing, in a non-terrified fashion, she meets a menacing man in a dark alley. Then promptly passes out at his feet.

Gideon Evans hasn’t exactly been having the best run of luck, but all that changes when a buxom little blonde collapses right in front of him. Or at least he thinks it has. It doesn’t take him long to realize that bombshell is an appropriate description for more than just her looks. Now he’s facing several problems, including a surprising enemy, his own dark past, and a rather inconvenient case of lust.

Can they work together to battle the nightmare that’s chasing them? Or will they succumb to the monster within?

REVIEW

This was great read! There was just enough paranormal mixed with erotica to keep you wanting more. The plot grabbed me from the first word. The attraction between Nicole and Gideon was instant. There were a handful of other characters I’m hoping she’ll elaborate on in further novellas *hint, hint*. I also look forward to learning more about Nicole’s past and why it is coming back to haunt her. There is also a little well placed humor throughout. I give this 4.5 stars and anxiously await the next.

About the Author
…I’m really starting to hate these with a never ending passion…

Born the only daughter of a pirate and a gypsy, Lola discovered the secret of time travel… and in doing so accidentally caused the destruction of the Roanoke Colony. When asked, her response was “Oops, my bad.” She now maintains the flow of time with her hyper-intelligent Raptor side-kick (Fabian), a phone booth than can travel sideways through time, and a bracelet that transforms her into an ass-kicking costumed super hero in a yellow power suit. Writing dirty books is just a cover so no one gets too close and learns her secret.
