Reah is a young girl, broken and cowed by her family. She is conscripted into the military only to receive the same bullying treatment at the hands of her military colleagues. When a horrible prank goes wrong, she finds herself on a hostile planet, enslaved and having to pretend to be a local to avoid execution.
I wasn’t sure how the author was going to pull this one off as her main character started out too afraid to even meet anyone’s eyes. Reah’s sole coping technique was to fade into the background, to obey every order and hope no one lost their temper and beat the crap out of her. Her only solace is in her love of cooking – it’s in the kitchen that she can let her creativity and sprit come to life. Unfortunately, even in the kitchen, Reah finds herself a victim. Demon Lost begins as a Cinderella story without the mice and fairy godmother, but quickly takes an action turn as Reah is forced out of the kitchen to battle horrific demons intent on “turning” or eating everyone they find.

When Natalie Gibson posted on Facebook that she’d published a short, erotic story about furry fetish, I promptly bought it.
Furry fetish often gets lumped into BDSM erotica, but it’s truly a world unto itself. The furryfandom ranges from people who enjoy dressing and role playing as anthropomorphic animals, to a desire to engage in sexual activity while one or both partners are acting in their animal roles. I’m no expert, but I love a good dress-up, and am always looking for a new kink to read. Continue reading →
I was intrigued the moment I saw the cover for Dessert by Lily Harlem. A naked woman, covered in beautifully crafted sushi? It seemed more art than erotica. Who could resist with a cover like that? Not me!

I’ll get right to the heart of things: Write an honest review for any of my published works, urban fantasy or otherwise, and be entered into a drawing to win a $25 Amazon gift card. It’s winter. It’s cold. You know you want to snuggle up with some good books, but the checking account balance looks dire after the Christmas holidays and no one on Craigslist wants to buy that hideous sweater Aunt Edith gave you. If you hate the book, I’ll be sad, but you’ll still be entered in the contest for your review. I’ve been in the corporate world for over twenty-five years, I’ve got thick skin. Don’t feel like you have to sugar coat things to save my feelings. Be honest.
“But I have no money,” you say. Well, A Slave to the Coin is free on Smashwords (here), so go get it! “But I’ve already reviewed one of your books,” you say. Awesome! Send me the link (even if you have in the past), and you’ll be entered.
Read, write, and send me the link. You can use my contact form here, or my Facebook page here, or DM me on Twitter @debra_dunbar. Each book/story reviewed get’s one entry in the contest, even if you post it on multiple sites (although I’d love it if you did post it on multiple sites!)
This contest runs today through Valentines Day, February 14st, so get reading!
In the wake of this year’s divisive elections, Operation Cinderella gives us faith that not only can staunch supporters of opposing parties find common ground, but they can also make good bedfellows. Hope Tarr spins this fun romance that, at times, reminds me of a modern day Pride and Prejudice. Continue reading →
