Two new reviews for Pleasuring a Pirate

Whipped Cream Reviews gives Pirate 5 cherries!

Here’s my favorite part of the review:

I found this to be a beautiful, absorbing romance rich with depth and imagery by a writer with the talent to deliver a high-quality product. Quite a neat feat considering the length of the story. My eyes misted, I chuckled, cringed and truly empathized with these characters. I highly recommend this delightful read.

Judith at Book Binge has a lovely review too. Here is her conclusion:

As always, these Ellora’s Cave novellas are a very nice read for a spring evening–just enough to keep the mind engaged and the libido massaged and to fill in a couple of nice hours in that comfortable chair. The story is nice, the characters are interesting, and the scenario is not really so far out that it is unbelievable. It’s one of those ebooks that is nice to have handy and that I find I like to re-read from time to time. I think you’ll enjoy it.

Romance Times has given Roxanne’s Pirate 4 stars. Here’s the review:

by Janne Lewis

Genre: E-book, Erotic Romance

RT Rating (4 stars)

Deception fills the pages of this gripping and super-sexy tale. Trust is in short supply as the principals square off both in and out of the bedroom. The pace is fast and the characters are on point.

Roxanne personally delivers an envelope addressed to Carlos Delgado and finds the pirate of her dreams. Under the influence of a spiked drink she seduces him, not realizing he is a person of interest in a case her firm is litigating. He’s also connected to the man who bribed her father. She’s under his spell and uses the Internet to discover what she can about him. They reconnect long enough for him to steal all her electronics. After settling their misunderstandings they begin a torrid affair. Then the intrigue begins. Carlos is friendly with all the wrong people and Roxanne is afraid she doesn’t know him.

My first review for Watercolorist’s Seduction!

I am delighted by the thoughtful, considered and lovely review Judith posted on The Book Binge blog. You can read it here. Judith calls my short story “warm and readable” and “a story that pulls at the heart strings.” Here are her concluding words:

This is the first literary offering by this author I have encountered, but it demonstrates a talent for good writing and the ability to tell a very good love story in a small number of pages. Ms Lewis does all this with a very competent grasp of the historical realities which form the context, and the cast of characters are all very real. I liked the story–it was not difficult to read but it held my interest throughout the work. Thus, I give this work a 3.75 out of 5 rating.

Tina at Two Lip’s Review gives Flavors of Ecstasy a 4 Lip Review! She says “The Proper Wife” is “an extra hot read you will want more of!” Fallen Angels gives the anthology 4 Angels and says “The Proper Wife” is “both a steamy story and an emotional one.”

Holly at Whipped Cream reviews gave Maiden, Mother, Crone a 5 cherry review! Here’s what she says about “The Blessing of Desire”: The Blessing of Desire by Janne Lewis is a dark fantasy showing the strength of desire, and what it can do to even the strongest of men and mages. It answers the question, is a man any less if he feels desire?

My first erotica story “The Bitch In His Head” was in Violet Blue’s Best Women’s Erotica 2009 [and reprinted in Best of the Best Women’s Erotica 2].  Lisabet Sarai reviewed the book for the Erotica Readers Association  and said:
Janne Lewis’ “The Bitch in his Head” wins my prize for the most intriguing characters: a demanding executive trapped by his obsessive-compulsive fancies, and the woman who loves, indulges and liberates him.
