More About the Author

An RT Book Reviews Career Achievement Award recipient in Erotic Romance, Joey W. Hill has well over thirty titles available in contemporary and paranormal erotic romance. Her characters include everything from vampires, mermaids, witches and angels, to boardroom executives, cops and simple housemaids.

Free excerpts from all her works are available at www.storywitch.com, and additional vignettes, character interviews and graphics inspired by the work are at the fan forum site, accessible via www.storywitch.com/community. Subscribe to her newsletter from her home page and receive the latest info about appearances and releases.

Though much of her work is BDSM, she has built her reputation on award-winning romances with absorbing characters who not only attract fans of the genre, but readers who would "never" read BDSM romance. "Whatever genre you're writing, if the characters are compelling and sympathetic, the readers are going to want to see what happens to them. It can be the coolest storyline ever, but if the reader could care less whether the hero or heroine survive (in fact, in some cases they may be rooting for their destruction just so they can be done with the darn thing), then it's not a story worth reading."

Well I loved this long awaited story. Since the end of Mirror of My Soul I was hoping that Joey Hill would give us more on Brendan and Chloe, and boy did she ever. Exquisitely written. This love story dances lightly on its feet around the BDSM theme of the Nature of Desire Series. With gentility, beautiful sensuality, eroticism and romance (yes romance and lots of it). Brendan and Chloe are both truly loving souls, but with much need. Like most Ms. Hill's characters they are complex and multilayered. Without giving the story away, there is a scene in a Carnival that is written with such vividness and intensity that it grips the reader right into it, completely unforgettable, while moments later in the scene it becomes so touching that it brings tears to ones eyes. Brendan is a real Knight in shining armor, ready to do battle for Chloe when she needs it or if she desires it, while feisty Chloe is more than ready to return the favor. If male/subs are thought of as weak, well Brendan has changed my opinion. There is "real strength in his gentleness" I guess that is the message.

Brendan said to Chloe:
"I feel...whole, like I'm doing what I'm supposed to do. I'm on the edge of being exactly what I'm meant to be, and there's no need for anything but to be...yours. When I get completely lost under a woman's touch, her power and control, swept away, I know this is what I want most. I'll do anything for her. For you."

4.5 stars.

After a horrible attack about a year ago, Chloe suffers from panic attacks. Her sanctuary was branded. She's always been a woman full of life, joy and laughter. Her friend Gen said over a year ago:

"If anyone could live on the curve of a rainbow, it would be you."

Sadly that's gone now. During a panic attack one night, she calls a number that she's had for so many months. It's Brendan's. She met him at Marguerite's (her boss) wedding. Listening to Brendan's voice, to the easy honesty in his words, calms her tremendously. They have some hot phone sex. Besides the phone sex, they have an interesting conversation as well.

"Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength."

Chloe is feeling things she's buried for too long.

"Chloe." <...> "Tell me again what you want. I need to hear it. What do you want?"
"I want to be me again. I want to feel safe."

There's a problem though. Brendan is the perfect male submissive and Chloe is not part of his D/s world. Brendan was in uncharted territory, pursuing someone who was not accustomed to his submissiveness.

Ah, there's an aspect of Branded Sanctuary that I truly loved! Tyler and Marguerite. They're making quite an impact here and it's a great pleasure to see them again. Chloe asked Tyler:

"Will you teach me how to use a gun?"
"Chloe.

Joey W. Hill is a creative and inspiring story writer. "Branded Sanctuary" has a solid plot with strong character development and wonderful dialogue. This is a gripping story about pain and recovery. Chloe is a charismatic personality with a damaged soul you will enjoy getting to know and cheer her on as she begins to reclaim her life and looks toward a future without pain. There are many layers to Chloe which are revealed and which will invoke strong emotions in the reader. Brendan wants to help Chloe on her journey of recovery, a knight in shining armor. He is the ultimate good guy whose pleasure is defined by his gift to ensure the happiness of those around him. He is a sexual submissive who reveals his true nature in his caring and giving actions. Yet he is selfless to the point of frustration for Chloe who wants to know if he really wants her or is only seeking a new Mistress. This is a glorious romance which includes spicy and sensual love senses between the main characters. It also includes some graphic sex and BDSM senses. "Branded Sanctuary" is book VII in the Nature of Desire Series. I highly recommend everything written by Joey W. Hill. She is truly an exceptional story witch! - Michele

Joey Hill is my favorite erotica writer, and this book had some amazingly hot scenes. I will read and re-read the slave auction, in particular.

It was well-written and well-characterized, but ultimately not quite what I wanted. Hill is fantastic at kinky sex and the psychology of BDSM. This book started out seeming as if it would be about innocent Chloe discovering her dominant (or possibly submissive) tendencies. But it turned out to be a story about Chloe's psychological healing and her discovery that she isn't into BDSM at all. In other words, a journey into vanilla sex. Which is fine, but I don't read Hill for vanilla, and it isn't what she does best.

I enjoyed this but it's not among my favorites of Hill's.

Another wonderful read by Ms. Hill. I could not put this book down. Stayed up till 4 am to finish. Ms. Hill takes the readers on another emotional ride with Chloe and Brendan. Chloe is dealing with some tough emotional issues throughout the book. Brendan goes through some issues of his own. However, Ms. Hill brings them together to help each other work through their issues. As always with Ms. Hill's writing, the story will take you on an emotional journey with the characters. What they feel you experience! Can't wait for the next book in the series Divine Solace which comes out on 3/21/14
