David Gilroy was prepared to do his job as a construction worker and set up a new bit of outdoor floorspace on the sensual, tropical island resort of Amante del Mar. What he wasn’t expecting was to happen upon a sunbathing beauty whose feisty spirit and gorgeous body entrance him from the get-go. Gina Munson is a parapsychologist who is determined to find out what supernatural forces seduce the people on the island into relaxing their inhibitions. However she finds herself caught in a web of lust for the hunky contractor. She has to decide if she can get past what happened the last time the resort sank its metaphysical hooks into her and have something even scarier than fantasy: true love.

I found that I really enjoyed this story. It took me a couple of chapters to get into it, but as I went along with the flow, the plot gripped me. The characters are loveable and I especially found myself wanting to discover the secrets of the island with Gina. I would’ve loved to see more on the island’s effects, getting more into what really happens there. Their Secret Paradise is very descriptive, though it got a bit wordy for me at times. Still, the story was really solid, the sex was scorching and it was a fun book to read!

Roul Verlaine and Morgan Kale are drawn to each other from the instant they meet. There was no doubt from either of them that the sex was explosive, but Roul wasn’t looking for strings. He also didn’t realize that Morgan was his mate, which was fine with her. Her fear of loving and losing the one to complete her made her willing to let him walk away. Can Roul figure out who Morgan really is to him? Can Morgan let this Alpha wolf bind her to him?


I’m not usually a fan of stories this short, but I have to say that the length didn’t keep the characters from being well-developed and didn’t keep me from getting invested in their outcome! Now that takes some talent. The words painted quite vivid pictures for me, not just of the smoking hot lovin’, but also of the intense emotions! I really, really enjoyed Mating, and the only thing I wished was that it was a bit longer.

Collared and cherished, Katie loves her role as her master’s slave; unfortunately, her past has made her afraid to face her own desires. Despite her insecurities, her master knows what she longs for and wants her to push past her fears, but will his strength be enough? Can she trust him to keep her safe and allow her to fly secure in his sweet dominance?


Dena Celeste offers readers a glimpse at the lifestyle that moves beyond the sexual to the truly intimate. The most astounding and pleasant part of this story is the ever present tenderness that flows between Katie and her master. I enjoyed this short story and believe other readers will too. It showed me a side of domination and submission that I had heard about but never really understood. If you want a gentle look into the life of a submissive, Her Master’s Gift provides the perfect opportunity. Nicely done, Ms. Celeste.
