The chemistry between Carmilla and Laura was divine, and the intimate scenes truly felt as such. While, yes, y’all know I’m a fan of erotica and adore me some well done smut, I’m also a huge fan of romance. And Carmilla and Laura? They have some beautiful romantic moments. So many happy little sighs.
I particularly enjoyed being in Laura’s head while she struggled with her growing love. The conflict was done so very, very well, which is why the discovery of Carmilla’s true nature hit as hard as it did. But I won’t delve further. No spoilers here! 😍
Overall, the writing is gorgeous, the story is enthralling, and the characters are lovable. It was a very quick read, one in which I read in one sitting and found myself frowning because it was already over. I am definitely adding SD Simper to my Writers to be Watched list! I would recommend this story to anyone who loves vampires, adores sweet historical romance, and/or who wants a delicious little snack of a book to while away an afternoon.
Laura plays the role of an eighteen year old girl isolated in a castle with her loving father. Her days are interrupted by the arrival of Carmilla, a highly affectionate but ill young woman that is strangely attached to Laura.
The story unravels for the reader both in the build up of the romance and the true nature of Carmilla. I really enjoyed their chemistry and Laura's POV as she comes to terms with her love and adoration for Carmilla.
I don't think there were any "gotcha!" moments...well, there was one nice little easter egg at the very end...but I was really curious how the climax would play out. Overall, I found the execution of "Carmilla and Laura" to be fresh and I enjoyed it.
There are also many beautifully written passages that I made a point to highlight.
I'm really loving this author's writing style and recommend this and all of her works.
"Carmilla and Laura" is available on Kindle Unlimited and I'm running off to Scribd to read the original "Carmilla".
I can’t recommend this novella enough. I recommended before I had even finished it, and then I recommended it some more. It really is a sweep-you-off-your-feet tale. It has hope and light and edges of darkness and shared turmoil. It feels like being swept into an intimate waltz with love and death, and I enjoyed every step of the dance.
Carmilla is odd and she suspiciously amorous.
Laura isn't sure what draws her to Carmilla, but she is positive it is wrong, evil, and sinful.
Laura finds herself having to come to terms with the future she desires and if she has what it takes to secure it.
This was fairly short and quick to get through. I don't think I felt the 'love' as much as I should have. Definitely chemistry, though. And I thought the intimate scenes were really beautiful. Not clinical or smut like. Instead they seemed romantic.
Not as good as her 'Sting of Victory.' But OK and entertain enough. 3.5 stars rounded up.
This is a story of first love, of wondering whether you're being foolish to trust, but wanting so much for the love and trust to be well-placed.
It is also a story of how men seem to find it irresistible to wield control over women's lives.
I love the ending, and the surrogate mother. I love the idea that one, "monster," would nurture others. As females, it makes sense that would happen.
Laura believes in the Christian God, and Carmilla has suffered atrocities by those claiming to follow Christ. I appreciate the way the author handles this delicate subject, condemning no one for their beliefs. Even when Laura jumps into the pyre, willfully committing what she believes is an unforgivable sin, she lays down her life in a Christ-like fashion. Wonderful book.
