Yay! another great review for my book "Master Nikolai" this time from Just Erotic Romance Reviews. This is so awesome, two great reviews for my book in one week :) Now it's time to do a happy dance.

Master Nikolai from the Master Series was a complex tale of dark desires, wounded souls, and those with the ability to heal them. The book was truly a treasure. I was sad to see my time with the characters end. Jacob was young and still trying to find his way in the world, which was bound to happen the longer he worked for Rose. The lady knew how to find trouble and she did just that with the new story they were researching. One minute Jacob was sure of his sexuality and the next he found beauty in the eyes of another man. If Rose were near, he would have vigorously until her senses returned. I found Jacob’s self-exploration sweet and refreshing. It felt as if I was finding out about the joys on life with him. Meanwhile, Rose was having troubles of her own. From the moment she entered Master Nikolai’s home, her life changed. My experience with Rose was different from Jacob. She had a stronger personality and that made for more fire in the bedroom. Even though, Master Nikolai was not a classic tale of romance, the connection between all of the characters was realistic. The plot kept me on the edge of my seat and the sex caused me to quiver

After a rather long four days I went to catch up on reading my emails and had a wonderful surprise. The first review for my book "Master Nikolai" recieved a 5 out 5 blue ribbons from the Romance Junkies! Needless to say I am thrilled by this. Below is a little of the review. The entire review will be posted on Romance Junkies website soon.

Yay, it's time to do a happy dance :)

MASTER NIKOLAI is the latest addition to Justus Roux's MASTERS series. If you've already been reading this series you'll appreciate the protective nature of both the Masters and their beloved slaves throughout this book. If you haven't read any of the other books then MASTER NIKOLAI gives you a tantalizing taste of each of these dynamic Masters and the submissives who love them. Rose and Jacob enter into their book project from an outsider's perspective but soon discover that while the lifestyle isn't for everyone there are aspects that do appeal to them. I was touched by Rose's story and her confusion while being with Nikolai, but it's Jacob's story that brought me to tears. His time on Master Drake's island is so open and honest that I truly felt my heart break when it came time for him to leave. Justus Roux fans will truly appreciate MASTER NIKOLAI's story.

My daugther's birthday is this Sunday, she will be eleven. She is already figuring out how she would like to spend her birthday money. She also wants to go bowling. This is about the only time I go bowling so needless to say I am not very good at it. Though I do enjoy playing the game. Needless to say it will be a busy weekend.

I am also making my Thanksgiving plans. We are trying to decide which relatives to visit this year or if we just want it to be our little family. Personally I would prefer it to be just our little family. Everything is up in the air at the moment.

I have updated the Yahoo Erotictales Publications store :) Oh my goodness that was a pain in the butt, but I think it was well worth the time. The new store design looks much more polished than the other one and should be easier to navigate.

"Master Nikolai" is now available in print edition through the yahoo store and ebay. It will be available in all other retailers such as Amazon and Barnes & Nobles etc. within three weeks. I am so glad it's finally available in print :)

My oldest son turned 18 yesterday. It’s strange that my little baby is now legally an adult. I feel so old today. Next year he is going off to college. My youngest son is 16, next year he becomes a senior in high school. He is already making college plans. My little girl, the baby in the family, is celebrating her 11th birthday next Sunday. Two birthdays in one month makes for a busy month, lol.

Today for some reason my husband’s usual lack of enthusiasm for planning the kids’ birthdays is really bugging the heck out of me. I do all the planning and he just shows up. I was talking on the phone with him last night about the upcoming birthday celebrations and that lackluster tone to his voice made me wish I could reach through the phone and punch him hard, especially since it’s a milestone birthday for my son. Arrgh! There now that I have vented a little I feel better now :)

I have been waiting for the print proof of “Master Nikolai” and looks like I should be getting it today : ) I just love holding my newest book in my hands. I get such a feeling of pride and accomplishment.

I have been working on two Erotic Shivers “Surrender” and “The Heart’s Eclipse”. These two have been particularly strange to write, because I have been working on both at the same time. It’s like they are both competing to get written at the same time. Normally, I like to focus on one story at a time. There may be new storylines that will pop into my head while I am working on a particular story, but I usually just write the storyline down and continue working on the story I have already started. Luckily both of these new stories are coming along fine. “Surrender” is being posted on my website a part at a time, there will be three parts in all. Part one is posted now.

“The Heart’s Eclipse” will go into my yahoo store as an Erotic Shiver. This story came out of my love for Yaoi, which are love stories between two men written by women for women. Though you have to be careful when choosing a Yaoi, quite a number of them involve an adult male with a teenage boy, those I don’t like. But when it’s two adult males in the story it is really hot. “The Heart’s Eclipse” is about the growing love between Serin and Rakar. Rakar is a Sidana warrior, this race of people spread fear throughout the galaxy. They invade colonies taking slaves, food, valuables and whatever they can’t use they kill or destroy. Serin is from the colony Nunos which gets attack by the Sidana warriors. Rakar is instantly attracted to the beautiful Serin and takes him as a slave. Serin at first despises Rakar, but soon the two slowly start to fall in love. Their love is forbidden and could cost both of them their lives. The challenge of this story will be showing the slow build from hate to love between the two men. If they fall in love too fast it won’t be believable. If it takes forever for the two to fall in love it just won’t work. I have to make sure to strike the right balance
