"Truly a delightful book to read" - BlackRaven's reviews Marked


Marked by Emma Hillman was a hot, sensual story about sex, trust, and immortality. Ms. Hillman is able to beautifully balance the erotic sensuality found in Jake, the Immortal King who takes Faye as his mate with a sweet innocence that blossoms into full awareness in Faye. 

I really liked Jake. He’s abrupt, arrogant, bossy, and sexy as hell. He doesn’t hide his sexuality. He doesn’t sugarcoat it for Faye, even at the beginning of their relationship. He’s a king— well technical First Man, but practically the same thing— and he exhibits all of the characteristics every king has ever had. A perfect foil for him is Faye. She is a sweet, innocent human that Jake takes as his mate— a human woman to bear the next king. I’m very glad that Ms. Hillman didn’t make Faye a more aggressive woman. It wouldn’t have worked, having such a strong and domineering Jake. Faye is just an absolute perfect counterpart to Jake; she mellows him, softens him, and he pushes her at every turn.

This wouldn’t be an erotic novel without the sex and Ms. Hillman delivers 100%. From page one the chemistry between Jake and Faye burns practically off the page and it only got hotter the further along into the book I got. Ms. Hillman’s Marked was truly a delightful book to read.

Rated 5 Ravens and a Recommended Read by Olivia!

...  Thank you to Olivia @ BlackRaven's Reviews for this awesome review. I love the comments about Faye. That's exactly where I was going with her character, and it makes me happy to see someone get it so perfectly.

Out of Control Teaser

I've been working with my editor this week (hey Corrie!) on Out of Control, my first release with Resplendence Publishing. It's scheduled for 17 August 2011, and I can't wait!

I'll be sure to share the cover art as soon as I receive it, but in the meantime, here's the blurb/teaser:

Scared she'd always be too human for the five shape-shifting lions who wanted to claim her as a mate, Jade left the Pride who’d adopted her as soon as she turned eighteen. Now she's back, and only just realizing how much her departure affected them all.
They're so intent on seducing her she's having trouble resisting. One, maybe she could have, but five sexy men eager to claim her?
Surrounded by men who won't take no for an answer, and with the future of the Pride in jeopardy, Jade needs to decide who she can trust…starting with herself.  

What do you think? Like?
