I missed this when it was first posted! I’m happy to see my Angela Fiddler vampires getting some love, too.
Here’s a review of Lineage from MM Good Book Reviews: “It was a treat to re-read this book…, which then had me running to dig up the rest of the series to read. […] So if you love vampires and the touch of something extra, some rough sex and a bit of D/s, a storyline that has some twists and a long reaching arm and vampires who are unforgiving and loyal then I recommend you give this series a try.”
One of the best reviews I’ve had: “Literally written crack cocaine.” That’s exactly what I was going for. Heee!
(One of the other reviews of The Care and Feeding of Sex Demons said that the sex demon should have been made to have more sex. That was the opposite of my point. Just because a demon feeds on sex doesn’t mean that you should try to make incubi fois gras.)
When the reviewer says the reader doesn’t get a chance to catch her breath, I can see that. During the seminar Donald Maass had for Writing the Breakout Novel that if the reader wants a break they can put the book down, so the pace was a design feature to me, not a flaw. The Care and Feeding is to frost giants as “Don’t Fear the Reaper” is to cow bell. Coral and Changeling have a much more relaxed pace and are 99.9% frost giant free.
Angela Fiddler’s “Lineage (Master of the Lines: Book One)” Is A High Stakes Paranormal Romance.
I just finished reading a “But…I had to pay *attention* to the *plot*” review of The Care and Feeding of Sex Demons, and then my partner sends me this one.
Every once and a while you get a reader who understands exactly what you’re trying to do. And this was that person.
