S.J. Maylee

S. J. Maylee fell in love with storytelling at a young age and with it came a deep-seated desire for everyone to find their happily ever after. She’s finding the happy endings for her characters one steamy story at a time. When she’s not reading or writing, you can find her caring for her garden, laughing with her two young sons, or dancing to her husband’s music. She’s a PMP (Project Management Professional), Nia instructor, and coffee addict. As a writer she has a tendency to break hearts, but she always glues them back together.

Eternity (Descendants of Ra # 1) - Tmonique Stephens This story is packed full of all kinds of things that will keep your heart beating with passion, with fear, with anger, with excitement, and with love. The story starts fast and does not let go. It's a page turner. It all starts with fabulous suspense and mystery, there's a serial killer, Egyptian mythology, and it's all mixed up with real love and passion.

It was so much fun to watch Stella grow and discover her strength through this book. She gets a lot thrown at her and she's not perfect, she stumbles through her feelings in a real, refreshing way. Roman is not perfect either and that's part of why I love him. At one point he thinks: It galled to be lumped together with everyone else that hurt, left, and disappointed her. No, he's not perfect. He's lived through a whole lot of loss, and even though he puts her needs first, his choices add to her pain. The love story here is fascinating, at times it's raw and filled with pain and at others it's erotic and beautiful.

Tmonique does a beautiful job of rolling out the details of her story at just the right time. Just when you think she's pulled her last surprise, wait, there's more. Oh, and the side characters add all kinds of enjoyable color and depth. I will most definitely be reading the next book in this series.

I recommend Eternity to all paranormal romance readers and give it a 5.0
