The Bear Slayer

I am not a fan of fantasy! However, having said that, I need to clarify that I have now read each of The Thorian Sagas three times and I could easily read them all again! This author is a literary genius! In this story we meet Dorian, the son of the famous couple, Stoker and Erianne from the first saga, The Trader! Urged to find the woman of his dreams, and to discover why the bears have become so scarce, and also why trade between the Nagas and the Thorians had suddenly ceased fifteen years earlier, Dorian leaves his home and family and travels through the mines to the north. As usual with this author's work, the descriptions and details are magnificent, taking the reader right into the scene. A demon has been released from the mines, taking on the appearance of an albino bear that cannot be killed. Our hero's interactions with the miners, trapped in an ethereal existence between life and death, sets the scene for a fascinating story that will keep the reader absolutely enthralled. His meeting with the Naga woman with whom he is already in love, is both amusing and violent as he calmly kills the brown bear that has her confined in a tree. He learns that she and her sister are prisoners of the Lurans, a tribe of women who rescued them from the sex-crazed male Harrifs.
The detail of the relationship between the Lurans, and the Harrifs, and description of the Luran village is both shocking and intense, and definitely not for the prudish. The Naga's instigate a trade embargo against both the offending tribes until they return their captive women, but, before they can wage outright war, the demon bear arrives and Dorian needs to stop it. As always, with stories from this author, the tale has many twists and turns but constantly ends happily.

In Love and War

Supposedly a politer version of Baptism By Fire, but still with the careful detail and wonderful descriptions that this great author puts into all his magnificent stories. Essentially a love story, set during the American Civil War in the eighteen hundreds. I was brought into the story immediately by my anger at the abject cruelty of Jeffrey Belding, a man who ruled his slaves, his horses, his household, by fear. His daughter, Elizabeth, was the complete opposite, kind, compassionate and benevolent. She was also intelligent enough to bring about the demise of her hated father. When the war ends and Joseph Forrester makes his violent entrance into the story, she immediately falls in love with him, much to the dismay of Betty, a black woman who is also her aunt. I found Betty to be a lovable, motherly woman who only has the interests of Elizabeth at heart, even though she comes across as a thorn in the flesh of the young lovers. How Elizabeth is rescued from the crafty Wheeler men, and also her brother, who was supposed to be dead, makes for a wonderful and exciting tale full of twists and turns. An excellent read.

The 'Late' but Unlamented Theresa Collwyn

Love strikes at any time when fate takes a hand! A wonderful story of two mature people, both escaping memories of lost loved ones during a Christmas break. Tess and Robert meet unexpectedly, and though Tess is at first annoyed that her peace has been disturbed, she cannot help but be attracted to this stranger who has intruded into her lonely existence. Having led a sheltered life caring for her three younger sisters,, she is convinced that she herself will never marry. She and Robert are staying in the same hotel, in adjoining rooms. The story progresses perfectly, with fantastically beautiful and gentle erotica, so well-written. They are in love, - and then the sisters arrive, ready to rescue their naive older sister! A surprising ending to another outstanding tale from this extremely talented author.

Wages of Sin

This was a short story that I should have read before both of the longer versions, an excerpt which is slightly different to them. As usual with work by this skilled author, the details and descriptions are magnificent. An intriguing tale of one man's effort to hunt twenty renegades at the end of the Civil War. A wonderful love story of how he saves a woman from inevitable rape and death by those marauders. This was a well-written, stand-alone story, and I enjoyed reading it . I can recommend it to anyone who wants an exciting, short read.

The Promise

Having read Loss of Innocence (the 'warmer' version of this story) twice, I was familiar with the plot and thought I might be tempted to skip passages of description to get down to the nitty-gritty! I was so wrong in my assumptions!!! This author is so skilled that he has a way of describing places and situations that put one straight into the scene. Every single word needs to be read and absorbed! This is a love story like no other., perfect love where a man is willing to give his own life to protect the woman he loves. I was enthralled from the start and my attention did not wane once. At times, I shed tears because the writing was so poignant and moving. Yet the humour shines through in the way that Doug Haldane plays down his obvious intelligence, making him seem shy. An accident which could have cost the lives of a whole family, brings Doug to meet Susan, and it's love at first sight for the both of them. A promise to her parents that he will do his best to get Susan, with her serious health issues, to a hospital miles away, sends them on a walking journey together, where their love becomes stronger. Another promise is made, this time between the two of them. While Susan's condition slowly deteriorates, a hungry and injured bear follows them. Doug has only minutes to prepare to meet the bear, and one of them will die! By this time in the story I was unashamedly crying. The excitement and terror! A mere man up against a frantic and angry grizzly! Will that promise ever be fulfilled, or will Doug die a painful and gruesome death to prove his love?

A Murder Foiled ...... a rescue

After first meeting Henry Stavely long ago in The Elusive Miss Wakefield, I was drawn to read this snippet from that fantastically complicated story. I was not disappointed! Here, he is the youth, who rescues a completely innocent man from an undeserved and gruesome death. This man then takes this lad to his home, where he meets his family, three daughters who immediately sense the first stirrings of love. The detail, as young Henry draws each of these young ladies, is as magnificent as in all stories by this author. Brilliant as usual.

Quinn's Gambit

An absolutely wonderful account of an army training exercise. We meet Quinn, Sergeant Major Quentin William Hatheway, right at the beginning. He is supposedly being hunted by his team during a live-firing exercise on the army base. But he and his team all know that the hated commanding officer, Martins, has no intention of allowing any of them to return to the base. They will all be taken out during an 'unfortunate accident' - if he has his way.! However, Quinn is a master tactician, and has his own rules for war! And a bad history with Martins! He rescues Maria, an unwilling drug mule, and his reciprocated love for her, and his dealings with Diego, the man she is being forced to work for, further complicate matters for him. This story is full of exciting intrigue with splashes of humour, making for an outstanding tale. I loved this story so much and will read it again and again!

Rude Awakening

I enjoyed this story and found it hilarious in parts. Who couldn't love William's gentleness and sense of humour? This is another of the fantastic tales this author writes, and I'm still not sure which I like the best! A Rude Awakening is the third variation of his Erotica Adventures, and I'm so pleased I didn't miss it. Although the beginning is the same as the first two versions, the rest of the story is entirely different, but of course, with the usual happy ending. I can definitely recommend all books from this very skilled storyteller! He never disappoints!

I'll Show You Mine if ......

What a beautiful and moving story of awakening love! An unplanned meeting between a shy but extremely mature and well endowed 13 year-old boy, and an almost 15 year-old girl with a mind of her own, unfolds a sweetly erotic and delightful tale. I loved it! Sometimes hilariously funny in their innocent discovery of one another, and later rather sad as they were thrust apart for reasons that neither of them could fathom. I was enthralled by it so much that I could not put it down until it reached the inevitable happy ending. Once again I am astounded at the ingenuity of this outstanding author.

Second Chances

I am running out of things to say about the amazingly skilled talent of this author. From the very beginning of this story I was intrigued by the captivating descriptions of the scenario. As the tale unfolds, amid hot erotic scenes between two people who are no longer teenagers, the second chance at love reveals it to actually be the first chance of the real thing! The humour in the circumstance is brought out in the narrative and thoughts of both David and Margaret, making it all delightfully entertaining. I loved the chapter where Margaret confronts her opinionated (and jealous) daughter and tells her exactly the way things are to progress in the future! And of course, Susan herself begins to understand her own misconceptions when she is thrown into an exciting and difficult emergency situation. Will she also find the love she so desires? Another wonderful story, John. I salute you - again!

Phew! Thank you, thank you, thank you! After a difficult start to this wondrous story, I suddenly became so enthralled that I couldn't put it down. I'm so pleased that you encouraged me to continue reading! If I'd given up, I would have lost a true masterpiece!. This story centres around the love shared between Guillaume Vailliancourt and his Rossignol, "Nightingale'., in the midst of a feuding family, a tale that would rival Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliette. The gruesome murders of the male members of the Chambertin family were so well described that my blood ran cold. .Only a .literary genius could have taken such a morbid tale and managed to accomplish such a happy and satisfactory ending for it.

The Trader

How I ever managed to stop reading this book when I absolutely HAD to, I have no idea! It drew me in right from the start with the fantastic (but not overpowering) descriptions, and from that point on I was hooked! But, even though it's a story that is difficult to put down, it still cannot be rushed. Every word needs to be savoured and understood. I loved the idea of Thorians being able to read one another's minds, and of thoughts being transferred between the characters with the aid of the necklace of claws from the slain bears. The excitement and drama, the romance, the terror of the young women 'tributes' as they were led into the unknown, the threat of the revolt from cities of women. all made this book another outstanding master-piece from this skilled author. A brilliant tale! I am so eager to read the next book in the series.

One for All, All for One

This is a hard review to write as I am still laughing. This story is absolutely delightful! An extremely daring tale of identical triplets falling in love with one man, while he in turn falls for each of them, after rescuing them in a dangerous situation which could have resulted in death or serious injury. Outrageously shocking as well as hilariously funny. And the impossible predicament ending with a unique arrangement by a very outspoken great-aunt. Perfect!

The Year of the Tiger

I am so pleased that I persevered with reading this story, after the first chapter which I found rather confusing. It turned out to be one of the most compelling and exciting stories I have ever read. It must have been a difficult tale to write, but I found it extremely interesting and full of intrigue, with the usual mind-blowing descriptions that I've come to expect from this author. There were chapters concerning the girls in the school which were so hilariously funny that I was sure I would die laughing, followed by others which were so serious and gut-wrenching that I was crying like a baby. A definite roller-coaster ride of emotions! I even found myself reading the dialogue of Mr. Henry with a broad Yorkshire accent (if that's possible!) The mystery surrounding the 'school ghost', Cedric, was charming, and of course, the inevitable love story between the blind Phillip, and the red-haired Ruth, as the four-hundred year old Thurston curse was put to rest, made this tale one of this author's best ever. A must-read for everyone!

Wheelchair Rebel

This story fascinated me almost from the beginning. A young woman in a wheelchair, lost in her own sorrow and despondency, and a broken man who has his own wretched past to contend with, are almost thrown together to help one another. I loved every word and am left wondering why this story did not win a prize. As usual with this author, scenes are so well written that I was drawn in as if I was actually there with them. Often, the thoughts of each of the characters made me laugh out loud, and even the lovely warm (sometimes hot) situations made me smile at the cunning humour in them. Another fantastic read from this author, leaving me so looking forward to even more of his work.

Love Will Find a Way

And doesn't love always find a way? This is certainly one of the best books I've ever read! Extremely daring, graphically erotic but so elegant and tastefully done. From a violent beginning, right through to the inevitable happy ending, I was hooked! Flashes of subtle humour made me howl with laughter in the midst of seriousness. I loved it! The sisters, Jane ad Arabella, had a convincing relationship with each other. as they related their experiences of what had happened to them, both of them being rescued in entirely different circumstances. And, of course, the heroes were just perfect! I especially loved the chapter when Jane and her friend Celeste were reading the writings of Bella as they looked at the graphic drawings. That poetry was absolute genius! I cannot stop singing the praises of this author to all who will listen, and to anyone who hasn't read any of his books yet I can only say, "You don't know what gems you're missing!"

Once again, another wonderful story! I liked Deke immediately. loved his sense of humour. The scenes in the bar, although well written, really disturbed me as I could not believe that anything like that could actually happen. Susan definitely needed rescuing! But I could relate to her in a way, having gone to an 'all girls' high school myself until we emigrated.

Baptism by Fire

I absolutely loved this story. It was like reading three stories in one as there was, first, the supposed incestuous aspect of the father/step-daughter relationship. Second the rescue of Miss Helen Prentice and the subsequent intimacy shared, between her and the hero. And thirdly, the love story of Joseph and Elizabeth. All within the confines of the War in the eighteen hundreds. I am impressed with this author's wide knowledge of the time, and his descriptions which bring the readers so closely into the scene, whether of war or love. Even the erotic scenes are written tastefully and he has an astute idea of the fashions of that era, as well as an outstanding knowledge of the anatomy of both genders. I especially loved the character of Betty with her wisdom and somewhat outspoken criticism at times, completely ignored by the stubborn Elizabeth who saw only the good in her darling Joseph. This was a story I hated having to put down, and I will definitely read again and again.

Can hardly wait to read the continuance of this lovely story. Amusing in parts, with skilled dialogue and interesting descriptions. Have yet to read a story from this author that I don't enjoy!

My Fourth Memorable Encounter

I wanted something quick to read an found this little piece. I loved it. Conjured up all sorts of visions in my mind of famous people from the past with whom I'd love to converse, classical composers, authors and maybe even biblical characters! Though I think I'd stay away from unsavoury folk like Jack the Ripper. Wouldn't actually mind Conan Doyle though!

Being Free

Well, what a wonderful story! Throughout all 4 books, I laughed, I cried (often), I was angry at the abuse poor Liam suffered, I was happy when Olivia helped him triumph over the darkness! A whole roller coaster of emotions! And I waited eagerly for updates everyday as if I was addicted! This author certainly knows how to move her readers! All her characters were believable and relevant to the story, whether or not we actually liked them! But I'm sure that everyone would fall in love with Liam and his darling Olivia!!! There were a few typos and towards the end I noticed a mix-up in names, nothing that a spot of editing won't fix. I am truly going to miss these stories and will probably re-read as they are that good!!! Many grateful thanks to this author for sharing her stories with us on Inkitt. I really look forward to reading more of her work. Well done Edwards!. You're a star!

Family Matters

I don't know why I didn't write a review of this wonderful story the first time I read it, a long time ago. The plot is fantastic, complicated at times but holding attention always.. The author's ability to bring out emotions in the readers is to be commended.. I laughed very often at the humour of the family members, and cried with them at times too! I did feel sometimes that there were too many characters to keep track of,, but I understood that this was necessary for the progression of the family that Cassie had found. One or two typos and grammar mistakes also didn't take anything away from my enjoyment. I am in the process of reading the sequel now, which is why I needed to re-read this story to refresh my memory of the character's family relationships. I think I enjoyed this story even more the second time around. Looking forward to reading more stories by this author. This one is a winner!

Hopeless Until I met You

Lovely sweet story. .Could have a little extra detail in parts but nevertheless a very nice read.. Needs editing as there are missing words, tense changes and a few confusing mistakes where the author uses 'I' instead of 'he' or 'she'. But a job well done, and I would recommend this book as a quick pleasant read.

She Saved Me

I absolutely LOVED this story. This author is massively talented, able to bring out so many different emotions in the readers. The characters became so real that readers could feel their pain, anger, heartache and even their fun and laughter at times. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a fantastic read. There are places where it needs editing to correct typos and grammer mistakes but it certainly takes nothing away from the enjoyment of the story. I am certainly looking forward to reading more from this author and can only say "Well done! An amazing job!! You deserve to go far, and I wish you every success for the future."

Bad Boy Abused

This was a wonderful story that I couldn't put down. I cried for Liam unashamedly! Would have loved to be able to correct the typo's and missed words, and of course the grammar mistakes which irks the hell out of me,; ie. the use of the word 'of' instead of 'have', eg. 'should OF been' is not correct English; It is 'Should HAVE been'. However, this certainly did not take anything from my enjoyment of the story. Well done! You have a winner! xx
I also read She Saved Me first which actually peaked my interest in this story.

Familiar Strangers

This story is the best thing I have read on Inkitt so far! This is pure romance without smut and I absolutely loved it! One or two missed words or typos did not take away from my enjoyment of the story. It encompassed ALL my emotions. A fantastic well-written piece that the author should be very proud of!

The Damaged Bride

Wow! When I started reading this I couldn't stop! There are one or two typos that I even overlooked (Sorry - I'm a bit pedantic about spelling and grammar) The plot drew me in so much that I needed to read it all before I could think of leaving it! Loved it! The characters were compelling and I ended up loving Marcus as much as I had at first hated him! Wonderful story and I feel that I would love to read more by this talented author.

Game of Love

I started reading this story half-heartedly, believing it to be about gaming on the internet, {which I detest as I am old and know absolutely nothing about I.T. or gaming}. However, the story drew me in so much that I couldn't put it aside! The more I read, the more I enjoyed it. There are a few grammar mistakes and typos that need a bit of work. One striking mistake that was repeated was the use of the word 'too' when it should have been 'to' (or vice versa), but It did not detract from the story itself. The plot was very good and much work must have gone into it. I did get rather confused at times because of missing words, but presumed that these were general typos. The characters were believable and I am sure I even loved M as much as Kit did!!! Looking forward to reading more by this author.

Falter

This story would be more suited to young adults, though I did find my interest heightening the longer I read. Grammar and spelling needs definite improvement, but I believe English is the author's.. second language, and also that it is still a work in progess. Plot is quite good. I will be very interested to read more from this writer.
