Reviewers have said:
This was an absorbing paranormal tale filled with suspense and passion ... The characters were strong and well developed ... Paranormal and erotica readers alike will not be able to put this one down.
A riveting read where the first sentence packs a punch and delivers the hook that had me gripped until the end. Some superb delivery lurks within the pages of Second Sight, along with excellent imagery ... My eyes tumbled over the sentences in a bid to read as quickly as I could ... Buy it and love it, readers. A solid and delightful read.

Loved Him to Death: Haru of Sachoné House by K.M. Frontain
Haru, merchant prince of Sachoné House, sails into the port of Verdant on a day when Ardu magic normally rejects outsiders of the faith. Despite that he is an infidel, Haru is chosen to be the next Oradhé, the holy man who must act as a dragon god's conscience. To Haru's dismay, the price exacted for this duty will be his eyes burned from his sockets.
Haru's struggle to retain his sight becomes a profound battle to preserve his spirit, for he must resist not only Verdant tradition, but the questionable advances of Intana, the dragon god. All the while, Vaal, the shark deity of Haru's people, lurks in the water and observes. Vaal of the Depths has plans for Verdant, for Intana, and for Haru.

Conspiracy of Angels by Zinnia Hope
Coming in print July 10, 2007
You'll love to hate her, want to hug her, yell at her, and then root for her. Raised by a Bible-beating grandmother and a starstruck mother, naturally, Elizabeth has issues.
Forced to leave town seven years ago by the local minister, Elizabeth has returned. With the help of some meddling angels and her overbearing grandmother, she finally finds her way back to her one true love. Sometimes, a bit of heavenly conspiracy is required to set things right.
Based on true-life accounts, Conspiracy of Angels is a controversial tale of deception within Christianity where sex is a sin unless there's a gold band on the ring finger and people gossip while sequestering the skeletons in their own closets.
