About the Author
Nothing exciting happens in Tawny Taylor's life, unless you count giving the cat a flea dip--a cat can make some fascinating sounds when immersed chin-deep in insecticide--or chasing after a houseful of upchucking kids during flu season. She doesn't travel the world or employ a staff of personal servants. She's not even built like a runway model. She's just your run-of-the-mill Detroit suburban mom and wife.
That's why she writes, for the sheer joy of it. She doesn't need to escape, mind you. Despite being run-of-the-mill, her life is wonderful. She just likes to add some...zip.
Her heroines might resemble herself, or her next door neighbor (sorry Sue), but they are sure to be memorable (she hopes!). And her heroes--inspired by movie stars, her favorite television actors or her husband--are fully capable of delivering one hot happily-ever-after after another. Combined, the characters and plots she weaves bring countless hours of enjoyment to Tawny...and she hopes to readers too!
In the end, that's all the matters to Tawny, bringing a little bit of zip to someone else's life.

The sex scenes and BDSM aspects were hot until I grew disgusted with Shadoe's complete lack of fidelity or even basic respect for his wife. I know that lack of monogamy is just a "vampire thing" with some authors - Delilah Devlin, for one - but once I encounter that in a book, I usually lose interest. Regan finally leaves him, only to take him back, actually feeling guilty for shaming him in front of the other vampires by leaving him in the first place. Ughhh...
Anyway, after initially liking the characters and plot, I was just totally disappointed with the subsequent storyline and character development.
Again, we are not talking high class literature here. I did really enjoy the story and Shadow is a great character and I do love how the author builds his character and his love for his family. Regan is a bit more unbelievable. She is annoying at parts. I feel Shadow takes this book not Regan.
The author made me care about him and his predicament. Yes this is a vampire porn so there was lots of vampire sex all over the place, with different sexes and in a dungeon (man I would love to have a dungeon like that...). I think the scenes are well written and erotic. I have reread this book. I found the backstory (back behind the sex) to be quite good and not just filler behind sex scenes as some other books.
Shadow is a complete and utter blankity blank blank...to me is extremely cruel and heartless to the woman he "supposedly" loves. No respect for her what so ever and thinks nothing of it to have sex with another women and forces her to watch like thats going to endear him to her....ugh...I hate characters like this.
Regan is really no better because she doesn't tell Shadow how she feels about what he does to her. The only redeeming quality to her is that she leaves him...but she looses that redemption when she goes crawling back to him.
This book made me physically ill. Especially after reading the part where he forces her to watch him take another women. It just made my skin crawl.
So read at your own risk.....I can't believe there are even votes for 4 stars for this book. Good grief.
