short and very sweet

I really enjoyed this. Characters were well crafted for a short story and I loved the bloodthirsty element of the storyline.

I loved this short and spicy read. I wish it had been longer so we could’ve seen Mina and Garyth’s relationship develop some more. This easily could’ve been a full length novel. I especially liked that Mina was so accepting of Garyth and who he really is, and wanted to be with him in his real form and not hiding anything from her, including his bloodthirstiness, which she shares with him.

Do you want to spend an hour-ish with a hot monster romance/erotica?
Me too.
I never thought this humidity-loving northerner would find the desert sooo HOT (hehe).

All of the stars for making ghouls hot.

Sexy, fast-paced, and addictive. I could not put this spicy novella down. The characters were well-drawn and fully realized—impressive for such a short piece of fiction. I especially enjoyed the overtones of shared vulnerability and emotion between the main character and her love (lust) interest. And who wouldn’t want an honorable lover who vows to eat the ones who have hurt you? Swoon. A wonderful, well-written read with the perfect balance of on-page steam and a propulsive plot to carry the heat.
