An Interview with Zach Sweets (and a giveway!)

Questions straight from the Heart (we are burning to know!)

 

  • What is the best book you’ve ever read?
  •  

    That’s a good question. I know my favorite series would be Soul Mates series by Jourdan Lane. As for a stand-alone novel, it’ll be “A Red Tainted Silence” by Carolyn Gray because the author made my heart ache while reading it.

    This was a very dark book with gritty scenes and shocking events. Don’t let the mention of Fae fool you into thinking it will all be flowers and pretty guys. It’s not.

    The beginning was very confusing and hence frustrating for me. I didn’t know what was happening and to whom it was happening. But once I understood the workings … Continue reading

    One thing I love about AJ Llewellyn’s writing is the ability to convey the deepest feeling of love and tenderness in a hot, sexy scene.  It makes the telling all the more provocative, because you can feel the emotion mixed with the physical.   Creed has that feel to it.  It is a continuation of the story of Dean “Marshall Honeybone” and his chef love, Jean-Luc, … Continue reading
