Indulge me?

Well, the reviews are starting to come in...and pardon me if I'm a little bit tickled about the response to Unmasqued.

I knew I was playing with fire, messing with a classic novel and romanticizing--er, eroticizing, I mean--a well-known, beloved story. And, yeah, there are people who aren't going to care for the book...but check out this lovely review at Blogcritics.

And since I want to make it easier on you, you don't even have to click over...here's just a little snippet:

"Unmasqued, a retelling of a classic, is an erotic classic in its own right. Charged with erotic images, sensual passion, fiery longing, and steamy scenes on and off the stage this is a book to be devoured in one seating. Then opened again and read slowly just for the pure pleasure of it."

(Thank you, Ms. McNeill! You've just made my day.)

I also thought it was wonderful. I read it front to back Saturday and then again Sunday. Steamy!

Congrats! Bought the book Saturday, and absolutely love it! Sexy AND beautifully written. What more can a girl ask for?

I mean to read it when I get the chance. I was flipping through the copies on the shelf at Borders, but the books appeared to be defective.

You have to expect harsh criticism when you write fanfiction though.
