Twice Begun by Reina Lisa Mensashe. Women’s fiction. A social worker’s French husband leaves her for a girl back home just as she begins a new job. Set against the backdrop of San Diego wildfires. An excellent, excellent example of how to “show” rather than “tell” and how to write what you know. This book is so well written and filled with lively, believable characters, I couldn’t put it down.
Commander’s Slave by Sue Lyndon. Sci-fi spanking romance. The President’s daughter is convicted on trumped up charges and auctioned off as a slave on a alien planet. Has an age-play “tone.” Sue Lydon’s best sci-fi romance so far.
