4.5 DIVAS For CARNAL CRAVINGS by Keta Diablo
Carnal Cravings by Keta Diablo

Genre: Historical, BDSM, GLBT, M/M

Craven and his friend Anthony discover they're in over their heads the night they're caught spying on Beresford Hall. But when Craven meets the dark, mysterious Dominic Beresford, he wonders if fate really does step in and take you by surprise when you least expect.
Carnal Cravings may be a short novella, but it had my heart pounding more than one time, and for completely different reasons. This book has a touch of suspense, a few horrible memories from Craven, and several very hot sex scenes between sexy men. What more could you ask for?
Despite the short length of the book, I was drawn in and held captive by the mysterious Dominic and the sweet, young Craven. This book moves along at a very fast pace, keeping you on the edge of your seat, panting for more. The only thing I can think of that would make this book better would have been use of lubrication and more length to the story.
Carnal Cravings is a great, quick read to heat you up and leave you satisfied. The scene in which Craven has memories of his childhood and Nurse Evans might make you shudder and cringe for poor young Craven, but his life is looking up just fine with Dominic in the picture.
Rated 4 ½ Delightful Divas by Melissa!

The Pagan and The Pen Reviews is the most recent convert to the Jesse Fox Admiration Society. If we put good reviews on our books, this one would not have enough space on its cover.
"This is by far one of the best books I have ever read. Written with great insight, I literally could not put it down. Blood Noir is a solidly written story with depth, intensity and strength much akin to that of James Patterson and Dan Brown. The writing is gripping, mesmerizing, exciting and compelling. The story line is so realistic you’ll feel as if you have been grabbed by the collar and jerked into the middle of a mystery so terrifying you’ll hope you’re dreaming. The characters are written as if they are live, breathing human beings that might live next door, with an the ending will leave you breathless! Do not miss this book!"

BOUND BY BLOOD: THE AWAKENING BOOK ONE
February 2009 Dark Roast Press
Ebook $8.99 714 Pages
Paranormal, Dark Fantasy, Romance/Erotica
Rating: 4 Cups
Now Dareus and Samanthra must work together to save TERAH, the planet they live on, before it is overtaken by evil. While they struggle to fight against the evil powers that are waging a war against them, an even more pressing issue comes about. The Dark Matter, which is the source of evil's power, is slowly drawing upon subjects around it and forming an entity that is more dangerous and more deadly than any other being they have fought against. Will Dareus and Samanthra be able to stop evil from winning and if so, at what cost to those they love?
Ms. Scarlett will take you on a journey through time to a place before Earth was even a speck of dirt in the galaxy. Bound By Blood: The Awakening, is the first book in a new series. While most of the story gripped me and took me on a fantastic voyage, parts of it were confusing, possibly from all the eclectic group of characters throughout this tale. I thoroughly enjoyed watching how much Samanthra came out swinging when others tried to hold her down, and Dareus' love for her made this story all the better.
With a cliffhanger that will leave you breathless, this novel will leave you in suspense and have you pleading for more books to come about the planet, TERAH and all its inhabitants.

Believe it or not, yessssssssss.....
Title: Uprising by Christopher C. Newman
Genre: Horror and Non Erotic Romance
EBook Price: $7.99
Author site: http://www.christophercnewman.wordpress.com/
Publisher: Dark Roast Press (http://www.darkroastpress.com )/

Imagine a world where the undead have been conquered and are now just another resource to be utilized. You go into your local DMV to renew your drivers' license. The clerk asks, What do you want marked for your Undead Clause? A No answer means upon your reanimation a specialized government team will capture and terminate you. A Yes response directs them to transport you instead to a factory where you are prepared for entrance into the Reanimated Working Class. Due to the Outbreak of 2015, the United States population has sunk dangerously low and the illegal immigrants are gone. There just aren't enough people to do all the jobs that are necessary.
The average American hardly notices them--the red masked members of a new lower caste who walk rich people's dogs, collect errant grocery carts, pick up litter, and shove snow or rake leaves. They go about their mundane tasks faceless and with clamped jaws, apparently harmless to the general public. RWCS are just another humdrum fact of the aftermath of Supernatural Act of 2018.
But an RWC's existence isn't what most people think it is. How long can something so hungry - and angry-- be kept in check? With protest groups moving through the halls of Congress, these creatures have become a political hot topic. How far will these lobbyists go to see justice done and the dead interned into American soil? What would happen if they are finally freed to prove a point? They can only do what zombies do best...feed on human flesh.
It started off as an ordinary day for many of these characters. But for many, it would be their last. The calm these humans have felt will soon be history.
They soon realize that nothing last forever. This is not your usual good versus evil novel. Ordinary men and women will discover their inner strengths and fight to survive.
The ‘cages’ humans have place upon the undead ones called RWC’s will soon be let free. But will the cost of their freedom be too high for the human race.
Many of those who think that the undead ones still have a bit of their souls and humanity left inside of them. One of those people is Sandy Shelby. Sandy is in charge of one the biggest activists group called ICARE. She has many eating of the palm of her hand. Sandy is great at what she does. She’s willing do to whatever takes to get her agenda passed. What Sandy is willing to do make her one cold hearted bitch.
There are many other interesting characters like Chuck and Elaine. They are the heart of this novel. The fighting the humans have to do to survive is just tip of the iceberg of Uprising. Just when things calm down… then boom, all hell break loose.
Christopher C. Newman has written many books. Uprising is one that will keep readers anxious to discover his other books.
If you enjoy reading horror and zombie novels, then Uprising will be the blood that runs to your heart.
What I found thoroughly entertaining about Uprising is that the great background description that Mr. Newman wrote. He kept my mind on the story with each new page.
To tell you the truth, I was a bit nervous about reading Mr. Newman’s Uprising. It’s not my usual cup of tea. But I took chance and I am glad I did.
What I enjoy most about Uprising is that it wasn’t what I expected. It went beyond my imagination and loved almost every moment of Uprising.
There is one character that I love to hate and wished the author went another direction. If you want to know who I am referring, you will have to read Uprising by Christopher C. Newman.
Don’t let a little horror and zombies keep you from reading a great novel.
Zombies need some loving too.
Won’t you give those poor zombies some love?
I give Uprising a rating of 4 Stars.

Title: In Service
Author: J.C. Natal
Website of Publisher: http://www.darkroastpress.com/
Genre: Thriller, M/M, Erotic Fiction
Publication Date: August 2008
Length: 515 Pages
Reviewer: WitchGiggles, Alternative-Read.com
In a modern time where sex and prostitution is turned into servitude in order to keep it safe for both sides, where Lords hold power where they will and spoiled is a normal state of being, Elias Doherty is about to set in motion more trouble than ever conceived by his little mind. All because he wants one spectacularly beautiful Servant trained for one exceptionally powerful and unforgiving Lord.
Jared Karan, trained from a small child to be the sexual slave of a lord knows no other way of life, misunderstands why he is being "thrown away" to this other lord and is afraid to trust in the one thing he has never known in his entire adult life- the love of an adult for his unworthy person; but with slow steps he slowly learns that he can make decisions for himself and trust his own heart.
At the very beginning of this I thought it was going to turn into "simply another spoiled boy getting his way" type of romance. Ms. Natal however, gave me a very surprising wake up call in that this was a book that never got boring, never dragged, always had things going on that you never expected and most of all the characters are stunning to watch in their growth and the sex was enough to scorch.
I recommend this one most heartily.

Craven and Anthony find themselves in a cauldron of trouble while spying on Beresford Hall. A man in a black hood has routed them while they spied, and now he’s escorted them to the manor and secluded them in separate rooms.
One thing haunts Craven, the ice-blue eyes behind the hood and Anthony’s words, ‘Only one man possesses such eyes . . . Dominic Beresford, the most magnificent creature God ever breathed life into.’
Review of CARNAL CRAVINGS, Author Keta Diablo

Warning: m/m gay fiction
I went into this story thinking it was a quick read (a novella I believe with a total of 44 pages), and I could get through it quickly because gay romance hasn’t been my thing so far. No offense to the gay romance writers out there, I’ve not read any that entertained me…until now. After reading Keta’s m/m gay fiction, it has me wondering if she has any f/f gay fiction.Just like with Decadent Deceptions by Keta Diablo, she drew me in again and I couldn’t tear myself away. From almost the beginning, she had me holding my breath when Craven and Anthony are caught by the hooded figure on Beresford’s property. And then anxious again as Crave awaits his punishment for trespassing.
The way Keta breathes life into her characters is fabulous. From the sexy mysterious Dominic Beresford--who I would do by the way...lol--to the unassuming student Craven, I was hooked from page one. I loved both characters equally. What I found very poignant was how vulnerable both Dominic and Craven were. Even though Dominic came from money, had a title and property, he was still longing for that special someone and was unsure how Craven would accept him in the end.Carnal Cravings was a great read from beginning to end, spicy hot, but you’re forewarned, if you don’t enjoy gay fiction, then skip it. But if you do, pick it up and be prepared to love it as much as I did.

Another theft ring site is http://www.4shared.com/signup.jsp 4shared.com. I joined it to leave protest emails at book pirates pages. The one AJ mentions is called Astatalk. I strongly advise anyone published to check these sites and set up a stink about unauthorized ebook 'sharing'. It's a crime.

I admit, not everyone can see the beauty of this universally balanced symbolic evocation of androgyny and healthy hedonism. Male and female, sentient and inert, protein and carbohydrate, solid and liquid, nuturing and withholding, static and dynamic, attack and embrace, the raw and the cooked, all are evoked simultneously by this iconography. Not since I became acquainted with the avatar of Vishnu as Lord Jaganatha have I been so moved by the depiction of a deity. My personal leanings had always been toward the abstract and ineffable understanding of the divine. http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId=153752216&blogId=234874853
