The Love of Her Death Reviewed!!

5 Clovers from Kwips and Kritiques!! (That's their highest rating folks!)

This book is not something you want to miss! And here is the review to prove it!

Donnice “Donnes” Jordan finds herself on the most unusual train ride. Stuck on Locomotive Number 13, Donnes is on a ride in which there seems to be no happy ending in sight. Every stranger she meets has a secret and horrific past. Why is Donnes here? And just what is the role of the sexy conductor, Colin?

Kudos to Luna Carrol for finding a happy ending in this very dark erotic fantasy! THE LOVE OF HER DEATH is a surprising story which twists and turns in the most fiendishly clever of ways. The atmosphere is almost eerie, as one wonders just what Donnes will experience next in this unusual train journey.

Character development is key to the success of THE LOVE OF HER DEATH and Luna Carrol ensures the reader cares about the characters. Ms. Carrol clearly shows readers that what is in a person’s heart is far more important than their appearance, a lesson Donnes has to learn. Donnes’ reaction to Patricia Stone sets the stage for this lesson as she has difficulty ignoring Patricia’s goth, almost garishly revealing clothing, especially in comparison to Donnes much more subdued clothing. Traveling on Locomotive Number 13 can be quite an eye-opening experience, as Donnes will soon learn.

THE LOVE OF HER DEATH will not appeal to all as it is a very dark story, despite the happily ever after ending. However, readers wanting a taste of something different will appreciate this extraordinarily edgy tale. Sensitive readers should note that there are F/F scenes and that Donnes is not monogamous as her sexual explorations are part of the journey she is undertaking. Take a ride on the wild side with THE LOVE OF HER DEATH… if you dare!

Charlotte Booksigning and New Review!

Hello! I'm thrilled about everything I have to say. So let me just get to it!

1. Charlotte Literary Festival this past weekend exceeded my expectations. Yes, I sold books, but there is so much more than sales required for a successful booksigning. For example, I shared a table with Angela Knight, a friend of mine from RWA. I hope our friendship grows because of the time we spent together. I also met Catherine Coulter. She accepted a copy of book as a gift and even promised to by a copy of book being released this week on and bookstores in September. She promised to drop me a message about the book when she completes it. Successful may not be a big enough word to describe my first booksigning!

2. The same book Catherine Coulter is going to read for me received a wonderful review from Coffee Time Romance. I just read the review today and I'm still ecstatic. Four cups out of a possible five!! I'm tickled. Yes, even this reviewer admits that my approach to romance and death is new, but since when has new been a problem in any genre?

3. I got to see some other author friends of mine at the Charlotte Festival. I wish I lived closer to them and could spend more time with them. Eliza Gayle, Sabrina Luna, Dahlia Rose, and Crymsyn Hart. Wonderfully nice women.

Now I'm off to begin the process all over again! Atlanta Georgia is next! Oh, oh, of course, I have to write some too. lol Please visit my Myspace blog and subscribe to be entered in my current contest. A free Gothic clock to be given away on September 15 (the release date of The Love of Her Death in bookstores). All you have to do is subscribe to my blog!
