About the Author

Since her early days of hiding the luridly covered paperbacks under her pillows so her parents wouldn’t catch her reading past her bedtime, Christine Warren has suffered an addiction to romance novels. Discovering Ellora’s Cave turned her into a positive junkie by introducing her to the world of Romantica, but it also proved to be an inspiration for the long-time writer. After penning everything from poems to short stories to screenplays, she discovered her real calling in erotic romance and happily penned her first e-book about a sexy Russian vampire and a woman with too many friends.

Christine spends most of her time thinking about sex—which is really no different from what she’s always done—but now she puts those thoughts into her computer screen and hopes her audience enjoys reading them as much as she enjoys writing them! She loves to hear from readers...

This is the first time I've ever read anything by Ms. Warren. It won't be my last!!! Although this is an erotic romance, Ms. Warren managed to pen a story with a fun storyline with great characters and not one aspect of this book was dropped due to the nature of the book!
Regina has just broken up with a looser and is not really in the market for a new one. Her friends have another idea all together. They feel that they need to hook her up with her "Fantasy Fix". She is going to live out her most erotic fantasy whether she want to or not. Feeling cornered she writes down the most outrageous things she can think of knowing that they won't be able to pull it off. Well, Regina has no idea what's in store for her but she will sooner then she knows!
Dmitri is not what he seems. He's tall, dark, yummy, and a vampire. He sees Regina across a crowded bar and realizes that she is his mate. The one woman that he has been looking for, for centuries. He only has to prove to her that he's what she wants. With his supernatural powers he finds out what he deepest darkest fanatasies are and sets to acting them out for her.
Winning Regina's heart will not be easy but the chemistry between them is too hot and Regina can't seems to get Dmitri out of her head. Literally!! Will Regina find that she can't turn her back on the fantasy of her dreams?
As I stated earlier this was a great romance. Romance being the key word in the previous sentence. Although this is an erotic romance, sex is not the only thing you will find in between these pages. Ms. Warren has a quirky sense of humor that she shares with her readers, as well as developing wonderful characters. I highly recommend this read and I look forward to reading Ms. Warren in the future

Format: Paperback
I savored this deliciously erotic novel like fine wine. Fantasy Fix mixes two fantasies of mine: Domination/submission and vampires. The latter isn't doable, but I sure love to read vampire erotica! This intoxicating novel introduces us to Regina, a New York career woman who has just ended a bad relationship. In a misguided attempt to help her move on, Reggie's friends force her to be part of a game called Fantasy Fix in which they fix each other up with men who'll fulfill their deepest erotic fantasies. Reggie has fantasized about vampires and being dominated in bed. She may well meet a dominant man, but the closest she'll come to a vampire is by hooking up with a wannabe vamp at a gothic club. Or so she thought. Dmitri Vidame is the dominant rogue she'd never allowed herself to envisage and a whole lot more. Not only is he gorgeous and has the sexual prowess of a bull, but he can read her thoughts and communicate with her mind as well. But Dmitri hides the fact that he's a nocturnal creature with a penchant for blood...

This is one of the most erotic novels I have read. The romance and erotica mingle well and one does not outdo the other. The building of tension was flawless. I loved Dmitri. He's one of the sexiest characters I've read. And, as said earlier, the fact that he's both dominant and a vampire makes him all the more delicious. The whole fantasy about an immortal offering a human woman eternal youth and beauty is very sexy. What could be sexier than a sensual and masterful alpha male who can offer his female mate eternal life? I loved this novel, but found a loose end. How did Dmitri become a vampire? The author fails to supply that very important piece of information. I would've liked to know. Other than that, this is an erotic novel that should be devoured from beginning to end. I shall look forward to reading more books by Christine Warren. Another great offering from Ellora's Cave! I cannot recommend this delectable novel enough!

I only got this book last week form Amazon & hadn't even put it on my shelf when I decided to read it. Normally it can take me a couple of years before some of my books get read & then I wish I had read it earlier. I picked "Fantasy fix" up last night, started reading it & I was hooked. I checked to see if there were any more by Christine & found 5 more in this series, although only available as e-books. Which was a disapointment to me.

This book is hot & even better than that it is funny. I love Dmitri's & Reggie's friends & I can't wait to read about their fixes in the rest of the series. I have already downloaded "Fur factor" (Bk. 2 of Fixed series). This one is Graham's (Dmitri's best friend & a werewolf) story.

I actually own both versions of this book which was first released as an ebook through Ellora's Cave. I decided to buy the physical book because it is actually really good, and I wanted to see it on my shelf.
As many another reviewer has said, "the title does say it all". Regina, our heroine, is set up by her lovable friends with the date of her life. They are determined to have her live out some of her deepest, darkest fantasies.
At a costume party, where she was supposed to be set up with the first of her 'fantasy fix' she meets Dimitri. And, let me tell you, he is all the fixing for the fantasy Regina needs. But, what she doesn't know is our dominant and lovable hero is a vampire, and she is soul mate.
Interestingly, this isn't a dark and descending story, which is normally what you find when you read books with vampires as the hero. This book is funny, laugh at loud funny at times. Regina, her friends, and Dimitri friend's are hilarious. Add in the up and downs of the budding relationship, and you have a really good story.
Yet, I gave the book four stars because I found Regina's acceptance of some of the things Dimitri could do a bit unbelievable. I mean she accepted that he could speak in her mind before she even knew he was a vampire. I also gave it four stars because the book is very short for the price you will pay. But, it is very good, don't get me wrong.
If you have a little extra cash and can suspend some of your normal belief requirements then this is the book for you.
