Spellbound got 3 stars yesterday. It was one of the most complimentary reviews I have ever received--or one of my books has ever received, rather. After I read it, I couldn't stop smiling. :o)
The reviewer is Paul Mitton, a writer whose chosen genre is more horror and less romance. In fact, he's been a wonderful support with my flash fiction endeavors which lean a little more toward horror.
I was over the moon when I read his review. Spellbound was the first Regency romance he's ever read. He was pleasantly surprised and thought the characters were well-developed and the story line was good. But, why don't you check it out for yourself? Here's the link to the review on his blog: Dark and Secret Writes. (Link should open in a new tab or window, depending on your settings.)
So, shameless self-promotion time. Look away if this is something that annoys you. ;o)
Description for Spellbound: England 1820. Retired actress Raven agrees to pose as a missing noblewoman/fiancée of an eccentric duke. If caught, she could lose her life. Her reason is simple curiosity about her employer, Lord Windhaven. His plan goes far deeper than merely hiring an actress to play a role. He suspects something is not right with Raven. Then the duke's brother arrives, threatening to reveal Raven's identity.
