#Review – Stolen Innocence by @authMelodyAnne #Dark #Romance


Every master was once a student – every woman was once a child …

What makes a person forget their entire identity? What makes them become someone else? What makes them desire pain … control … and ultimately pleasure? It’s not anything that happens overnight, over even in a few weeks. Tragedy beyond what a human can possibly imagine will forever alter Mary’s future.

Mary’s life is boring, conservative and typical. She wants adventure, thrills and so much more. But she will soon learn to be careful what to wish for when she’s taken against her will and thrust into the twisted world of a powerful man who doesn’t care if she lives or dies.

When Mary starts becoming Elena, she does find a savior, but is he truly the person who will protect her, or will he be the one to escort her straight into the pits of hell?

Forgetting who she is or where she belongs, she learns she can trust no one, rely on only herself, and fall further than she ever thought possible. She will become someone else and the cycle will begin. She will become the person who will eventually change the life of so many others. Some might say the change is good, the violence is necessary. And some will cry for this tragedy that should have been stopped.

Just when you think you know how it all came about, how it will end, you will be floored again by who can be trusted … and who can’t.

Note from the author:

This book isn’t anything like what I’ve written before. I had a dream, the opening scene of this book, actually. And I woke up and lay there for a while, and still couldn’t push it away, so I got up, wrote the first chapter. Then I lay back down and was back out of bed within fifteen minutes, where I gave up on sleep and sat at my computer all night and all the next day until my eyes wouldn’t stay open anymore. Then for the next week, all I did was eat and sleep (minimally) and the first draft was born. I was so emotionally drained from it, I put it away for a month, and then came back to it and went back into the world of Elena.

My question was, what makes someone enter into a lifestyle of BDSM? What makes them enjoy pain? Enjoy being degraded? Then I realized, it’s not a matter of enjoyment necessarily. It’s a matter of your world spinning out of control. And this is a way to ground yourself. Elena has become so special to me. The first book is tragic and I cried several times while writing it. The second book, she starts to find herself, and in the third book … well, the third book leaves your mouth hanging open. I hope you enjoy this journey with me. It’s been an emotional one.

This book is intended for mature audiences only. There are explicit scenes of abuse, language and questionable sexual situations. Eighteen and older only. This story is about a woman so abused she turns into a person most wouldn’t even fathom becoming.

Stolen Innocence by Melody Anne

So, this is one of those “dirty” Melody Anne books. She has a way of making them so freakin’ dirty without using any naughty words… seriously. I’ve never read any other author that can do that. It’s definitely for the 18+ crowd. I’m going to go as far as people with triggers from rape, abuse, and anything related, don’t read it! It’s unquestionably a dark, gritty read. So you people who one stared it because it was “too dark” and “degrading” Holy hell people, you were warned in the synopsis for cripesake… Does this ring a bell???????? “This book is intended for mature audiences only. There are explicit scenes of abuse, language and questionable sexual situations. Eighteen and older only. This story is about a woman so abused she turns into a person most wouldn’t even fathom becoming.” “Explicit scenes of abuse.” Duh… you no like dark, you no read book… but don’t read it when you knew it was dark then give it a bad review because you don’t like dark books… You people make my ass twitch!

Mary is you typical 16 going on 17 year old. She’s kidnapped and brainwashed to believe she’s Elena the sex slave. She’s one tough cookie and for good reason. The men “grooming” her for the Master are vicious to say the least. She learns quickly that keeping her mouth shut keeps her from getting beat.

I’m still not sure how much the other characters are going to play a part in the next installments so I won’t mention them. I will say this, not everyone is who them seem and I’ve deemed most untrustworthy. Be careful who you put your faith in.

This is a fast paced, action packed thriller that is extremely sinister. Mmmmm, my kind of book! It’s an extremely gripping story with powerful characters and boat loads of tension. This is not, I repeat NOT for the faint of heart. Onto the next book, Forever Lost



Melody Anne is a NYT best selling author of the popular series: Billionaire Bachelors, Surrender, Baby for the Billionaire, Unexpected Hero’s, Billionaire Aviators, and some solo titles. I have a Young Adult Series; Rise of the Dark Angel.

As an aspiring author, I wrote for years, then published in 2011, finding my true calling, and a love of writing. Holding a Bachelor’s Degree in business, I love to write about strong, powerful, businessmen and the corporate world.

When I’m not writing, I spend time with my family, friends, and many pets. A country girl at heart, I love the small town and strong community I live in and am involved in many community projects.

To date, I have over 7 million book sales and have earned a spot on multiple best seller lists, including NYT’s, USA Today, WSJ, being an amazon top 100 bestselling author for 3 years in a row, as well as a Kobo and iBooks best seller. But beyond that, I just love getting to do what makes me happy – live in a fantasy world, 95% of the time.

#Review – Luci: Romance with the Devil’s Daughter by Bella Roccaforte




Luci is the Devil’s daughter, and she has the world at her fingertips. She’s sexy, powerful, and the sole owner of the Second Circle Casino, a present from her daddy.

To everyone else, it looks like she has everything a girl could want, but the one thing she doesn’t have is the love of her life. In a crude deal with Daddy Dearest to save her lover’s life, Luci loses everything. Now, payment on the contract is due, and Lucifer is showing no mercy.

Luci has to retrieve the Sword of Redemption so Daddy can conquer and rule Heaven. If she doesn’t find it, he’ll send her right back to Hell–where she was for over a century–ripping away every chance to feel love again. If she does, she destroys her one chance to get a glimpse at Heaven in all its glory.

When all she loves is on the line, she might make the worst decision of her life.

***Warning contains adult language and situations – it’s a bit sexy***





kellys review

Yes, yes, and more yes! Luci is the devil’s daugter. She is truly a work of art and has all the right moves. A sexy temptress that can ger her exactly what she wants and when she wants. With one exception, her lover. The devil himself won’t even give his daughter a break. The contract is due and she takes three unsuspecting tourists out on the town to give them a night they will never forget. As if Las Vegas isn’t already Sin City but these guys are in for a real treat. They are taken to different areas of the city and are given tasks to do on her behalf so she can complete the contract with her father. The situations they find themselves in are sometimes funny then completely and utterly sexy. Ahhhh, the things we do for love. This is truly a one of a kind story. An absolute must read. Kudos to Bella Roccaforte for bringing us an incredible story!

about the author


OMG Check it out!

I’m the author of:

Crescent Hunter (Moon Crossed) Series

INK: Series

Paranormal Transmissions Series


I have been many places and done many amazing things. My motto has always been that you can choose to watch life pass you by or be the one spinning the world. You have to get out and live. Life won’t come to you!

Writing is just one of my passions that I’m lucky enough to be able to express. I also love music, reading other people’s books, but most of all spending time with my kiddos.

The characters in INK are very near and dear to my heart. Some are very closely fashioned after real people in the real world. Many of the experiences that Shay has had actually happened, of course there haven’t been any murders – oh wait there were but not like in the book. That’s a whole other series!

INK is currently slated to be a 6 book series (0-5). I hope that you enjoy INK: Fine Lines and fall in love with Aiden and Eli just like I did!

#Review – Ren: The Monster’s Adventure by Sarah Noffke




Ren Lewis has seen it all, or so he likes to think. He’s encountered every danger known to man. Due to his powers as a Dream Traveler and unstoppable work ethic, he’s experienced more than any human alive. But Ren is about to have a brand new experience.

He’s being dragged on a family vacation.

When a life altering event falls on Dahlia and Ren, he agrees to take a break from work and explore the West coast with his family. But since not everyone in the Lewis clan can dream travel, Ren is forced to endure regular Middling travel in a car. This vacation from hell is actually a spiritual excursion meant to pull the demons out of Ren. The most powerful man in the world is stripped from his element and visited by three wise women whose jobs are to make him come to terms with his past, present and future. This is a Christmas Carol retelling using a modern day Scrooge.





kellys review

More Ren! And on vacation?! OMG Sarah has truly outdone herself on this one! If you know Ren, then you know how snarky and what a debbie downer he can be. But he always speaks what is on his mind and has no issue telling you what he really thinks. He has been my favorite character since the Lucidites series and I get incredibly giddy when Sarah give us more. He goes on vacation with the fam but has to do it Middling style, in a car and everything. If anything can happen, it does. His snark, plus Dahlia, and the “life ruiner” absolutely makes this a laugh out loud story. Everyone has a demon to battle but some don’t know how to go into battle to beat their demon. I don’t think Ren knows how to deal with his own personal issues and feelings. While on this Middling adventure he is taught some life lessons on the way and will continue the story with a smile on your face and a belly laugh. As things progress we learn about a huge demon that he needs to put to rest. It stopped my heart and I didn’t know if I should shake Sarah Noffke for making me laugh then cry in one sitting or if I should just suck it up and enjoy the rest of the story. I chose the latter because, well, I need more Ren, LOL! Thank you, Sarah, for another adventure with Ren. He truly is my favorite character ever and I look forward to him everyday. An absolute must read!

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Mary!!  What are you doing to me! OMG this book….I sat down to get a few chapters in before I got around to doing some Christmas stuff annnnnd 60% in I decided I needed to take a shower!!!  King and Carmine…..I am speechless!!  I wanna kick you butt at the ending but speechless.  Hawt and bothered because DAYUM was that a hot scene but utterly confused by who I love more!!!

I was super excited for this spin off.  Do you need to read the Dollhouse series?  No but will you get a better appreciation of the craziness that you will be reading?  ABSOLUTEY!!

King and Carmine have this “connection” in the Dollhouse series.  We know that they watched out for each other in foster care and we know that she is in love with him and he her but the secrets that we learn about in this book….oy-freaking-vey.

Carmine and King have been through A LOT.  He has loved her from afar and he blames himself for letting her down during a big moment in her life.  She feels like she was betrayed by him and through this “issue” they are separated.  King vows to spend the rest of his life to find her.  When he does, shocked doesn’t even begin to tell you how he feels regarding her current situation.  He will take care of his woman and he will do it right the eff now!  And FYI she is not to thrilled to see him again ya’ll.

Carmine is so confused by King and what he does to give her some justice for her past.  She is also confused by what she is feeling for him and his two brothers, Stephan and Hash.  The couple need to stop yelling and hiding and start talking.  Everyone can SEE the chemistry and the sparks but they both are ignorant to how the other feels.

Carmine goes through a huge journey and finds an ally in her quest to capture King’s heart all the while also hoping that this love will heal the ally as well….dreamy sigh at my hopes for the next book……

The book stops COLD and leaves ya hanging but it also leaves me with hope because we can SEE the plan starting to unfold!!  Plus for you non-Dollouse readers it gives you time to read that series to prep you for book 2 of King and Carmine!!

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

I was so intrigued with King and Carmine from the Dollhouse series and was excited to read their story.  OMG the connections that Carmine has with a few of the Mercy guys is amazing.

King and Carmine were placed in the same foster home and King looked after her. Even though she was not the prettiest girl he was drawn to her and her eyes.  It crushed Carmine all she wanted was him but had to stand on the sideline and watch him be with anyone but her. When her world is turned upside down King was taken away from her. Her life spiraled from there and it was years before King found her. King was shocked to know where and why she had ended up where she was.

Carmine has been through hell most of her life things go from bad to terrible. Carmine no longer knows King they have grown and their experiences have changed them into different people. She is not sure about King now that he has stepped in and showed her exactly who he is. However, she does find she has a connection to two of his brothers who are told to look after her.

My heart went out to Carmine and all she went through. I got frustrated at Carmine and King at times they need to set down and let go of everything…communication is the key with these two.  This book does come to an abrupt halt not knowing what will happen with King and Carmine. I cannot wait for the next volume to find out how things are going to unfold.

#WOTR #Review – Circle of Lies by Fiona Riplee




Raz Donovan

Is Raz the savior of the Sixxer alien race, or will his child bring mankind and Sixxers together in peace? As a former M83 soldier and Transor, Raz vows to never get involved in the fight against humans again. Now, his only purpose is to protect his small circle and stay away from the one human female ruining all his plans. Once Raz realizes the extent of the Sixxer destruction, he is forced into a battle that will include fighting his heart.


Sandra Robins

Sandra always wanted a husband and a family. She wanted a happy and ordinary life. Unfortunately, her ex-husband had a different ideal. Now wary of men, she’s drawn to the mysterious man that takes care of her best friend. Raz is nothing like her ex, and because of circumstances put into motion before she met him, she’ll be thrown into a world where she can’t tell the truth from the lies. Once she is a part of this world, there is no turning back. Her heart convinces her to fall in love again.





kellys review

What a wild ride! Soooooooo good! This is an intense story that keeps going and going. There is so much going on with several stories that ultimately intertwine that makes this an absolute must read. Raz is an alien and is in hiding with Paris and their son. Paris becomes very sick and Raz believes it is time to run again. Raz and Sandra are very attracted to each other and had a one night stand. Both are crushed that Raz has to leave but he needs to in order to keep his secret safe. One thing leads to another and BOOM! Sandra is right in the mix of things and is more a part of this secret than she knows. Finally things are starting to make sense. But as more answers are obtained there come more questions. The bond between all the characters is intense. The author does not skimp on any details and you will become immersed in this world. It is jam packed with action and takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions.


This is Fiona Riplee’s first book and as a debut author…SHE NAILED IT! I am looking forward to continue this journey with Raz, Sandra, and the entire crew.

#WOTR #Dark – Stay by Chelsea Camaron

Title: Stay
Author: Chelsea Camaron
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: Available Now

Fair Warning … This isn’t a sappy romance. It’s not sweet. It’s far from anything you would want to imagine. This is a story to leave you feeling dirty.

Nothing about us is normal.
Nothing about us is natural.

Can love ultimately be defined in such ways, truly? This is our story.

He is a hitman. The very one who took my family the night that changed us both forever. Something in my eyes stopped him from killing me. Something in my eyes called out for him to take me.

At ten he captured me, at fifteen he consumed me, and at eighteen he owned me.

Outsiders think he’s my father … that is so far from the truth.

Our twisted desires fuel the darkness that lies deep inside us both. My innocence never existed. He takes me as I am.


“I was pulled right into this story. The story has pain, abuse, laughs, secrets, despair, and heartbreak.” – 5 Star from Renee Entress’s Blog

“Chelsea opened my eyes and taught me that it’s not about whether a person leaves your life or if they stay but what they do in between the time of entering and leaving.” – 5 Star from Swoon Worthy Books

“Everything about this gem called out to me and I’ll forever think about it.” – 5 Star from Author Jo-Anna Walker

It is dirty, wrong and yet sooo perfect!!!

The ending will gut you so be ready!!

I am pretty sure I shouty caps emailed Chelsea about this book!!! ANNND more then once!!!

I received this book from the author for an honest opinion.

*wipes the tears* WHHHHHHHHHHHHHY!! I mean WHHHHHHHHHHHHHY did you do this to me Chelsea Babe!!! OMG This is a whole new level of writing for Chelsea. I love her Hellions, Smoker Jumpers and bar guys but Giano is a whole lotta perfect wrong????

This book jumps right outta the gate into wrong wrong wrong territory!!

Fallyn is enduring what she does nightly when all of a sudden a man appears and saves her. The why of it doesn’t become clear until much much much later.
Fallyn is so confused. Why is she here and who this man who is caring for her. When she starts a conversation with the stranger, she is soon told what she is expected to do. She is expected to live. She is expected to thrive and she is expected to not take life for granted. We learn that she can’t be Fallyn but will now be Angelina AKA Angel to our stranger AKA Giano. The two form a strange bond. He is wanting to help her and she is wanting to have a real life. They begin to navigate life when she finds out who Angelina really is. The bond that they share is unique. They become a strange “family” unit. Dad and child but always knowing that is far from the truth.

Fallyn has to learn to navigate life as Angel. She begins to have a life but in high school Giano’s “work” catches up to him and causes some trouble for Angel. This then makes Angel wonder about her REAL family. Where are they? Are the dead? Are they alive?

As time goes on we see some sparks between Giano and Angel. She is growing more and more attached to this savior and he is more and more attached to his Angel…..the then girl now woman who saved him. The two have a very twisted and gritty life but after 8 years together something happen and the relationship is now shifted and forever changed…….

For me BOTH Epilogues helped my heart. I love the need Fallyn has but I understand the emotion that Angel expresses…….I Kinda liked Fallyn a little it more buuut that was my black heart at work there!!

#Review #TwinsieForTheDayJordan – Runaway Feelings by Britni Hill

Runaway Feelings


A sexy story about runaway romance coming October 26th, 2016 …

One night.
That’s all it was supposed to be.
One night in an island paradise with a perfect stranger.

All I needed was an escape, just for a few days. My life took a turn I didn’t see coming, so I hopped the first plane out of Chicago with no plan at all.

Headed for Tahiti, I was ready to put it all behind me.

I met Alex on the plane. He offered me something I wasn’t looking for. I took it greedily. When he offered more, I took that too.

When it all spiraled out of control what did I do?
One night.
That’s all I offered. At first.
One night with a beautiful woman. One I could walk away from.

A vacation was all I needed. Time away from running a business, and hiding from my soon-to-be ex-wife. I had it all planned out.

A fresh start waited for me when I got back.

Then she sat next to me. I wanted her. She was mysterious, hiding something. I offered her one night but it wasn’t enough.

Could a runaway romance really turn into more?

Twinsie for the Day

Jordan’s Review

At first I wasn’t sure where this book was heading but once Kait and Alex got off the plane, I knew the story would get interesting. Who gets on a plane in a formal gown anyway? Kait does. After running away from her life, she meets Alex unexpectedly on a plane headed to a beautiful resort. What would come of this trip was unbeknownst to both parties. Once returning to Chicago, life resumes or does it?
I loved this story! The characters are real and you can feel their emotions while reading. If you are looking for a book to help you runaway for a while, this is it.

#Review – Disclaim by @pamgodwinbooks #Dark #Gritty

Camila was seventeen when Van Quiso kidnapped her. Ten years after her escape, the shackles refuse to release her. Not while there are still slave traders preying on her city.
She will stop at nothing to end them.
Even if that means becoming a slave again.
Returning to chains is her worst fear—and only option. They won’t know who she is or what she intends to do. She’s prepared for every complication.
Except him.
The one who decimated her sixteen-year-old heart.
Matias is charming, gorgeous, and dangerously seductive. He’s also untrustworthy and enshrouded in secrets. After years of no contact, he finds her—on her knees, wrists bound, in the clutches of her enemy.
Will he sabotage her mission by needlessly saving her?
Or will he keep her in chains and never let her go?
Warning: Graphic sex and violence. Age 18+ only
It is recommended to read after Deliver & Vanquish, but it can be read as a stand-alone.

Disclaim by Pam Godwin
Matias & Camila

So, those of you that know me, know that one of my all time favorites is Pam Godwin. She could write an insurance manual and I’d be mesmerized by the contents! Her words are that fucking good! I intentionally read this slow so I could savor every damn word. I didn’t want it to end. Disclaim is thought provoking, captivating, and just down right brilliant. It will take your breath away and steal your soul.

This is not for the faint of heart so beware. No beautiful cut and dry love story here. This isn’t a BDSM tale of self discovery… more like the dark and dirty things in life we mostly turn a blind eye to. So, if your squeamish, then put this one back on the shelf until you are so inclined to pull up your big girl panties and read one of the best books of 2016.

Camila is one of those women so blinded by her own need to deliver justice to those who do wrong, that she doesn’t even hesitate to put herself in harms way if she believes the outcome will benefit her crusade. She strong, courageous, and cunning! She’s a former sex slave on a mission to take down any and all slave trading rings, but when she poses as a slave herself, things don’t go as planned. Let’s just say Camila is in for a rude awakening.

Matias is all kinds of alpha male. He’s lean, he’s mean, and he’s not taking no for an answer. He’s fighting his own battle that can only be described as hell on Earth. I seriously did not know whether to trust him or not. I’m still not certain! Get ready to fall in love with this man while your insides secretly hate him. No shit!

The supporting character cast is rather hefty. We get to see a small glimpse into Liv and Joshua’s lives, while giggling at Van and Amber a bit. The two characters that stood out the most for me were Tate and Nico. Tate is one of Camila’s best friends, but barely says two words through the entire book. His quiet persona intrigue me and I’m feeling that I need to know more about this beautiful silent giant. Now Nico, he’s Matias’ friends and he’s kind of a prick, but eh, he totally rubbed off on me.

So, this books is definitely going on my top 10 of 2016 no doubt about it. The storyline is exceedingly compelling and those characters, wow so commanding, so realistic. The dialogue flows with proficiency and the tension leading up to the climax is hauntingly superb. I love you Pam Godwin and your messed up mind! You make me wanna be a dirty girl!


Meet the author

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, Pam Godwin, lives in the Midwest with her husband, their two children, and a foulmouthed parrot. When she ran away, she traveled fourteen countries across five continents, attended three universities, and married the vocalist of her favorite rock band.
Java, tobacco, and dark romance novels are her favorite indulgences, and might be considered more unhealthy than her aversion to sleeping, eating meat, and dolls with blinking eyes.

#NewRelease #Paranormal – Drakkar ~ Beyond the Lie, Book 3 – Dark Order of the Dragon Series by Sandra Bischoff

Drakkar ~ Beyond the Lie

Book three

Dark Order of the Dragon Series

Author : Sandra Bischoff

Genre : Paranormal / Fantasy

Drakkar Dragoni, the only son of Princess Absinthe Dragoni, always believes what his mother tells him.

Humans are nothing more than cattle bred to nourish their kind, and her half brother, Jared Bonatelli, stole a kingdom which is rightfully hers. Drakkar vows to right this wrong, even if it means Jared dies by his hand.

But what if none of it is true?

What if this his mother’s biggest lie yet?

Who can he turn to?

Who will help him escape the prison within his own home?


The gods must have been on his side for once. When they got to Serenity’s house, her mother was asleep. There were no awkward introductions and no explanations as to why he needed to stay there till the next night. Nope nothing like that. Instead, Nettie whisked him to the lower level in the immense home and led him to a cozy nook of a guest room, far away from any windows.

Flipping on the light, she set about pulling blankets and pillows from the closet, tossing them on the full size bed across the room. Drake took advantage of her distraction and sat, watching her. She was nothing like the women he was accustomed to. That was saying a hell of a lot given the only female he was repeatedly subjected to happened to be Absinthe. With her as a role model, he’d been spoon fed manipulation and hatred since the crib and there was no end to it in sight.

He put a hand on the pile of pillows and linen beside him. “Exactly how many of these do you think I need?”

“Oh, is there not enough?” She turned to face him, blowing some stray hair out of her eyes. “I can probably find some more.”

“No, I think you have enough to smother me to oblivion right here. I’m good, thanks.” He chuckled.

“What? I figured since I don’t have a coffin, at least I could create a comfortable cocoon for you this way.”

“Cocoon? What the-  Serenity, I’m not a caterpillar. And I certainly don’t sleep in a coffin, geez. Friggin’ Hollywood.”

Nettie frowned, crossing her arms over her chest. “Hello! Joke! I’m only trying to make you comfortable.”

“Oh.” He patted the mattress beside him. Serenity flashed one more look of annoyance before sitting. “As long as we just keep sunlight away, I’ll be fine. The room has no windows, so we’re golden right now.”

“You’re sure? You don’t need anything else? How about something for that headache? I’m sure I can find some aspirin or something. Just give me a second to scrounge some up.” Nettie stood and sprinted for the door, only to have him snag her wrist, preventing her from leaving.

“Like I told you before, I’ll be fine.” He yawned. “Thanks for letting me crash here. I appreciate it. You don’t even know me. I could be a monster, yet you trust me in your home.”

He pulled her closer until she stood right in front of him. Cupping his cheek in her hand, Nettie bent till they were nose to nose. “Drakkar, you aren’t a monster. We met tonight for a reason and I have to believe it’s because I’m supposed to help you somehow.”

He gazed deeply into her eyes. She meant every word she said, believed it even. What if it was true? What if he was dropped there by someone or something so they could meet? But why? So many damn questionst but no answers.

“You know, if I decide to kill everyone in this house, there’s nothing you can do to stop me.”

She nibbled her lip, still cupping his cheek. “Think so?”

He nodded. “Bet your life on it.”

Nettie leaned closer. Their lips were a breath apart. “That’s a bet I’d make any day.”

“Oh yeah?” His own voice was a mere whisper.

“Yup. I have a crossbow and I know how to use it. I’ll stake your ass before you could blink those pretty blue eyes of yours.” Serenity pulled away from him and headed for the door. “Just hit number one on the intercom if you need anything.” The door closed quietly behind her.


Sandra Bischoff lives in the historic town of Cornwall, NY with her extremely patient husband and teenage son, she affectionately calls the Demon. She is a Pharmacist by profession but found her true calling in a simple twist of fate. A friend approached her to write in a forum on a popular networking website. Over the next five years her passion had found its niche. She went on to compose a few poems and short stories which she would post on her homepage at the same networking site.

Her debut novel, Beyond the Sun was published April 2013 by Bayou Brew Publishing. She recently was named to Amazon’s best seller list in the Fantasy/Epic category. Sandra’s second book in this series entitled Beyond Time was released earlier this spring in time for the Romantic Times Convention in New Orleans where she was a featured author at the Book Fair.

She has since left Bayou Brew Publishing to embark on the next chapter of her writing career, Independent Publishing. As of this time she has re-released both books in e-book and paperback formats. They can be found on Amazon.com.
