Feast of Candles: 99 cent spicy romance: "This book turned out to be a sex story!"
Feast of Candles, my 99 cent spicy romance released in July 2012. Written for the 2011 Victory Tales Press Christmas anthology, it's about a lonely woman, Lily Marquand, who runs a winery. Lily's looking for Mr. Right, but Mr. Right is not in Sonoma, CA. Enter Drake deBrettville. He's sampled Lily's wine and wants to meet her. When he does, the sparks fly. Does Lily dare to let him into her lonely heart?
I enjoy writing all heat levels. I've written sweet, sensual, and spicy. And I usually don't get spicer than Feast of Candles. And I'm quick to tell readers my heat level so they're aware of what their getting.
From Amazon Reviewer: Loves Romance: "The ending with the feast of candles is so romantic you'll want your own feast of candles with your sweetheart."
Then there's one from Billie Houston, Amazon Reviewer: "Some of the love scenes in this book may hasten global warming. Great story."
One reader/Amazon Reviewer didn't pay attention: D. Pennington wrote: "It turned out to be just a sex story!! It was told in very explicet sex language, about every time they had sex,which wasvery often, almost the whole book. The review should be much more explicet, so one would kmow what they were getting. It was worse than the "True Stories" magazine of years ago!! I would not reccommend this book to anyone I know!!"
I love to hear your thoughts:
Does this review make you curious to read the book? Do you get the vibe that the story is 50 Shades of Grey spicy? Or just filled with sex scenes?
Here's a small excerpt:
He stared into her eyes, keeping his hand on her waist. "What's wrong?"
"Nothing." She hesitated. "Everything. You..." her voice trailed off. Silence grew between them. God, what had she been thinking? Was it possible to have a future with him?
