Short But Sweet Book Review 2/21/2009

Afton Locke

2009 Ellora's Cave Publishing

Ms. Locke once again meets our expectations with this paranormal ghost-lover novella, filled with well-drawn characters and steamy sensuality. Well-handled and sexy, the story leads the reader into a web of sinister circumstances that keep the well-laid plot moving. A hot page-turner - hard to put down!

An excellent read! ~This one rates an 8.0 on the Richter Scale~

Coming Soon

Coming soon from Ellora's Cave


Two people from totally different worlds collide in a star-crossed romance filled with scintillating sex and wry humor.

Not your grandmother's romance novel, for sure.

She is a popular erotic romance writer, with five best sellers to her credit. Her life is fairly well set. Her fans adore her. Her publisher is her dearest friend. She is making excellent money. All by writing about a man she dreamed up many years ago - a man like no other! Handsome, virile, sexy, strong, sensitive - and a complete gentleman.

A man created in dreams!

He is a hot headed, egomaniacal pro wrestler - headed for the top! He has a reputation for being the baddest, hottest man on the mats. And the fact that his face is plastered all over a bunch of mushy, crappy romance novels written by a woman with a death wish doesn't set well on those broad shoulders. His agent is demanding monetary retribution from the woman who has dared to use his handsome image on her covers without asking his permission or paying a price - but he has another form of retribution in mind.

Short But Sweet Book Review 2/18/2009

No Holds Barred

Paris Brandon

2009 Ellora's Cave Publications

Ms. Brandon's rendering of love between an older woman and a man ten years her junior is handled with a fine touch and a loving hand. What is often a difficult subject to handle has become a hot, romantic novella with all the earmarks of a true winner. I found her characters to be real - believable - and beautifully paired. Finely drawn personalities meld into a wonderful, can't-put-it-down read. Congratulations, Paris!

~I give this one an 8.0 on the Richter Scale~

Lord Raven
Jan Scarbrough

2008 - Resplendence Publishing

Ms. Scarbrough has skillfully drawn her characters with a knowing, loving hand - combining well-written, historically correct narration with breathtaking passion. Her narrative is smooth and her knowledge of the subject time period is outstanding. Her ability to draw readers into the mood and hold them captive for the duration made this one a cannot-put-down read for me. A completely delightful read! Well done, Jan!

~Measures 8.0 on the Richter Scale.~

Drop in and read an excerpt! I have a "sorta" website up and running, (no comments on the lack of professionalism, okay?) and I upload excerpts from WIP's and books under contract from time to time.

Hello and welcome

Welcome to my Blog!

My name is Fran Lee, and I write hot, sexy romance!

I currently work with two fabulous Romance Publishers:

Ellora's Cave
Resplendence Publishing

I've made it my goal in life to heat things up. And I think I've been successful in that attempt.

My friends have told me that I think like a man.


Just because I know how guys think? I have two grown sons, nephews galore - and I've lived a long, LONG life! Of course, I never admit how long, but trust me - I was there when the Pyramids were built. And those Egyptian dudes in those short linen skirts were HOT!

I currently have two WIP's- one with EC and another with RP. And I have an entire arsenal of heat just waiting in the wings (don't want to overwhelm my poor editors)! And - being the woman that I am - I love a good, hot, sensuous read - so I constantly enjoy books by other EC and RP authors. I hope that my friends at EC and RP join me here from time to time for my reviews of their wonderful offerings! Reading hot romance and delightfullly hot historicals is my addiction.

Drop in from time to time for excerpts from my WIP's...

And feel free to link to me with your own blogs and excerpts!
