Meet the Author

Detroit native, Sylvia Hubbard, a single mother of three, has worked tirelessly to promote and encourage emerging writers in Michigan. She independently published her first romance novel in 2000 and has continued to write in that genre, sometimes venturing into other sub-genres. Always urban and contemporary styled, her writing is enjoyed all over the world. She has published 8 paperbacks and over 30 e-books.The same year she published, Ms Hubbard also created Motown Writers Network to fill the lack of education and networking for Michigan authors online and offline. By 2004, she was frustrated that all the literary conferences had moved too far away from the city and co-created The Essence of Motown Literary Jam Conference held only in the City of Detroit annually.In addition to romance writing, Hubbard has been featured at various conferences and workshops all over the United States and Canada, where she has taught authors how to sell their books on the Internet. She also published Internet Marketing for Writers & Businesses as a resource for those unable to attend her workshops. In the upcoming year, she will be featured in several anthologies and plans to publish additional e-books.

    This book has many elements of a good story. It includes love, family, violence, and sex. None of it is overdone, and all of it is in good taste. This author immediately pulls the reader into the story, keeping the interest of the reader without fancy twists and turns, but by simple storytelling.

    As Rob's history pours out on the pages, readers are left in awe. He has been through rough times in life, having come from a family of thugs. He has also done some awful things in life. Yet, he's ready for a change and striving for a better life. In comes Diamond. She's every man's dream, but there's the question of whether Rob's past will elicit so much fear in her that it prevents a future between the two of them. Or...will her own past cause issues that lead Rob into more trouble than he bargained for?

    A good story, well written.

    Not very good

    This was so poorly written I stopped at page 55...and I NEVER do that!!! Sentences that just didn't make sense and misspelled words. It's a shame the editor or proofreader didn't do their job...could have been a good story. Maybe I'll give it a try again if I run out of things to read.

    Basic, quick, okay read

    No real suspense. Mostly really light erotic. If you want to read mostly sex then this is the book for you. Was also not proofread before being published but you find that with some free books. Author tried to give it a story line but ended up coming back to sex. Good effort but next time try to develop the story line better. Or describe the story for what it is. You shouldn't have both.

    Just didn't like

    I didn't like the characters, the plot line, or the delivery. It seemed to me to be more like something you might read in a "men's magazine". Not that it was loaded with sex, but just the delivery and the way it was written.

    There were grametical errors but the story line was great and that is the only reason to read a story anyway.
