Elaine White's Life in Books

The Author

 

Elaine White is the author of multi-genre romance, covering everything from paranormal, crime and contemporary. Growing up in a small town and fighting cancer in her early teens taught her that life is short and dreams should be pursued. Living vicariously through her independent, and often hellion characters, she lives comfortably at home with a pack of wolves cleverly disguised as one standard poodle. The Winner of two Watty Awards – Collector's Dream (An Unpredictable Life) and Hidden Gem (Faithfully) – and an Honourable Mention in 2016's Rainbow Awards (A Royal Craving) she has explored the worlds of multiple genres, but remains a romantic at heart. A self-professed geek, Elaine has fallen in love with reading and writing LGBT romance, offering diversity in both genre and character within her stories.

 

The Reviewer

 

I’m an author and reader, who just can’t get away from books. I discovered the MM genre a few years ago and became addicted.

Dark Desire (Carpathians, #2) - Christine Feehan Not as good as Dark Prince. I like Jacques a lot, and I liked him before in Dark Prince. However, I find Shea a little annoying...insipid really.

I love the romance between them, the way they need each other and help each other. Some of it was a bit repetitive of Dark Prince though, mimicking Raven and Mikhail's story.

Overall, I found it okay. I just find it a little annoying that someone as supposedly intelligent as Shea, can see love and feel love for someone like Jacques and refuse to accept it. I know it's the whole will she/won't she dilemma of whether she will ever give in, but really, she's a lifemate, she doesn't have much choice.
