I.G. Frederick ... writes with authority and compassion about those who live within the lifestyle. Broken and Shattered explore issues including finding and initiating a submissive partner, informed consent and the difference between dominating someone and exploiting their needs. --Elizabeth Coldwell, Editor Forum magazine
The sex never disappoints in I. G. Frederick's novels. Just like a great night in the dungeon, once the kinky action begins, it barely lets up. Frederick goes deep into SM fantasy and left me simultaneously satisfied and begging for more. --Cecilia Tan, author of Edge Plays
