More About the Author

My official writing career began in 1987 when my first short story was published. My first novel, Rooms of the Heart was published in 1990. Since then there have been a slew of books and short stories that I've had published, from romance to women's fiction, chic-lit, erotica and mysteries. I enjoy them all. Three of my novels were adapted for television so that was exciting. I've had the honor of conceptualizing and editing several collections: After the Vows, Midnight Clear, Where There's a Will, Indecent Exposure, and The Hot Spot. I currently write full time and live in Brooklyn, NY with my family.

After Dark by Donna Hill, tells the story of Elizabeth Lewis. After twenty-five years of marriage, her husband left her for another woman. However, after some time Elizabeth got back on her feet. She and her friends own a very successful day spa for men and she has a new man in her life, Ron Powers.

Everything was going great until she found out that everything she and her friends worked hard for could come crashing down at any minute. Ron, whose business helped with the renovations for the spa, is being investigated by the FBI because of some things in his past that they believe could be tied to his current business. Because his company did most of the work at the spa, Pause For Men is also being looked into.

As if the investigation did not put enough strain on her relationship with Ron, her ex has come back into her life. With a life-threatening illness and no one else to turn to, he turns to Elizabeth. As she tries to help him get through this, old feelings start to resurface and they both wonder if maybe they never stopped loving each other.

After Dark was a good read. It flowed really well and I definitely recommend reading this if you are a fan of romance or Donna Hill.

We need another story Ms Hill, a connecting one for the sisters Dawne and Brian, and Desi plus more on Terri's relationship. This book wraps up things for the 4 older women, concentrating on Ellie and Ron, its not a surprise that Matt came into the picture but I liked the twist of it being illness that causes the dilemma however the ex coming back was used in the second book even tho the reasons were different.
Enjoyed the story but not the strongest one in the series and hence not a strong ending.

It's a good thing that I had read some of Ms. Hills more recent books and am already a fan. If I had started with this series, I would not have kept up with anything else she's written. This series was wishy-washy, at best. It was like one step forward, two steps back. Just when it felt like it was getting good, one of the women would do something so silly, it would just be like 'child please, you have to have better sense than that!'.
Anyway, I did chug through all four of the books, because like I said, I usually like this author's work, but it was hard. I found myself rolling my eyes at something in just about every chapter in each book. I never did see where there was anything with Barb and Mike, other than sex; Ann Marie was almost unlikeable; Stephanie was too...(I don't know) under-developed; and Ellie even considering taking on Matt again almost made me stop a few times mid-series. I did, however, like the way the friendships evolved throughout.

All in all, I liked the way each book pick up right where the last one ended. Also, I was interested enough to want to see where it all would lead. Again, it seems like Ms. Hill's stories have much improved over the years and I will continue to read her books.

I finished this novel in one day. I loved reading about the ladies that run the "Pause For Men" health spa. I knew Matthew was going to try and worm his way back to Elizabeth but what a dilemma for her. Ron loves her so much and Matthew is ill. What is she to do? Ron broke off the relationship so she can figure things out and I thought that was very noble of him. Wil and Barbara's lovemaking and the love scenes between Ron and Elizabeth...MY GOODNESS. I missed not hearing too much from Ann Marie and Stephanie as well as Terri. Sterling and Tony are still part of the mix. In the end I'm glad all the couples are still together despite the FBI, the ladies are engaged, and Stephanie is pregnant! but this can't be the conclusion of the series because Terri and her boyfriend Michael, the Lewis sisters, Drew and Raquel, Wil's son Chauncey, Stephanie's sister Samantha, Carmen, and Ron's friend Ali Aziz should have their stories told as well. I know it'll be some good reading.

This is the first that I have read this author and it was so good - the writing flowed so nicely I enjoyed this immensely - was someday that it ended where it did - i wanted it to go further but I will definitely look for another of her titles - I understand that this was was not a standalone book but it read like one - will look for the previous titles 👏👍😊

After Dark the fourth story in the Pause for Men Story was good not great! Elizabeth's story was not covered as thoroughly as it could have been. The Black Panther angle is interesting if you are 40+ or you are familiar with the history of the 60s era. A good conclusion though!!
