Nathaniel is an artist but he’s lost his urge to create. His muse comes in the form of a beautiful prostitute who hides the face that she is really a male. When his dark past catches up to him, he must flee but the action breaks Nathaniel’s heart. Nathaniel is determined to save his muse and the love of his life.
What a romantic, beautiful, intense, amazing story. I am really blown away by how lovely this book is. Nathaniel is in a dark place when he meets Gabrielle/Gabriel. They are both such vibrant, complicated characters. The historical world is beautiful portrayed. This story has so many layers and I had such a great time getting to the center. My only complaint is actually the point of view. Changing between the characters is confusing and clunky. It kept throwing me out of the story. Overall, A Muse to Live For is a wonderful historical romance.

Never judge a book by it’s cover. No one looks past Laz’law’s looks to see the being and capability underneath. He’s known nothing more than abuse, that is until he is assigned to be with Lune. By first appearances Laz’Law is sure he has just been dumped on some oldie to keep him out of trouble. He soon learns how a gentle hand can sooth not only a horse but the broken soul of a man.
I was so excited when I read the blurb. Then I began to read the book and thought I’d made a terrible mistake but a few pages later and I’m happy to say that I didn’t. This is really a great find despite the slow start. The plot is unusual in that we are transported to a different
planet and a different way of life. Though an abuse plot is not new the way it’s handled in this book is refreshing. There is no magic dick in this book that just happened to cure the abuse, but instead this book shows that it takes a lot of patience and understanding.
I love Lune, maybe because I have someone in my life just like Lune who is very dear to me but I truly appreciate the aging knight character. Laz’Law carries a bit of attitude but it’s used to cover the vulnerability of a very thin skin. He’s been through so much that you just want
to snuggle him.
This book is a really quick but it doesn’t feel like it with all the dimensions added to it. Head Shy is a really steamy, enjoyable read.

Where do I even start? This book had such promise. The plot alone had me standing at attention ready to sink into a new world. Black Carnival was such a disappointment.
There was a lot of telling. It needed background details in certain scenes and in other scenes; the background details drowned the story. The author hasn’t found that balance between the two. This overwhelming amount of description led to a slow pace and really hindered the
story. Couple that with the telling and Black Carnival was hard to get into. There were huge paragraphs that needed a break. First person point of view is tricky because of the use of ‘I’ and that was another problem in this book. On a side note, I have never heard a man giggle before but apparently, one of the male characters in here does. There's also choppy scenes. The story was pretty much destroyed by all the above which could be lessened by a better edit.
Ivory was very empty and one-dimensional. Her entire character was so cardboard and Lukan was a big question mark because of the first person point of view. It’s hard to write that POV successfully and this author missed the mark.
I’m sorry but I would not recommend this book. Would I read this author in the future? Yes, only because the plot sounded so unique and that is the bases for a good book.
