Overview

Lucifer Rising is a novel about love and fear.

It is the story of fallen DEA angel Jude Lucien and the Miami Herald reporter determined to unearth Jude's secrets. When an apparently happenstance meeting introduces Jude to reporter Liz Gardener, the dark ex-agent is both intrigued and aroused by the young woman. A sniper shot intended for Jude strikes Liz, and the two women are thrown together in a race to discover who is intent on killing her. As their lives become more and more intertwined, Jude finds herself unexpectedly falling for the reporter, and Liz discovers that the agent-turned drug-dealer is both more and less than she seems. In eloquent language, author Sharon Bowers paints a dazzling portrait of a woman driven to the darkest extremes of the human condition-and the journey she makes to cross to the other side.

I¿m not a reviewer but, an avid reader. This book held my interest and I didn¿t want to put it down. The plot moved along, kept you engaged, and made you feel the erotic charge between the two women. Of course, when you take the time to read, you choose the subject matter you are in the mood for at the time, I wasn¿t looking for Faulkner when I bought the book. Looking forward to reading another Sharon Bowers novel!

I have read many examples of fan ficion both in print and on the web. Most stories that make it to print carry the strength of good narration, solid characters and natural dialogue. This book has none of these things. The story is written as a thriller, but the leaps in plot line and character development are beyond those of most fantasy fiction. The main characters are one dimensional and never rise above their expected roles. The 'hero' is a master off all things (cooking, musical instruments, hand to hand combat, photography) and yet manages to not be the least bit interesting. The 'love scene' which happens shortly after one of the characters has been severely injured in an auto accident is dry and uninvolving. Probably the most interesting character spends most of his time alone locked in the garage, not allowed to interact with the poorly developed main characters. Without a doubt, do not rank this book on the level with most of the fan fiction that is out there. There are much better examples to be had.

If you don't know what Xena uber is you don't read online where most of these excellent first novels originated with fan fiction. This remains one of the best with the characters of Xena and Gabrielle perfectly translated (or reincarnated) to a modern milieu. It covers the whole dark history of our tragic heroine, an undercover agent gone bad and her relationship with the young investigative reporter fascinated by her, and is a great erotic and suspenseful read in its own write.[sic] I read it online and then immediately purchased it in paperback and read it over again as soon as it arrived. It's riveting and well written and a special poignance and resonance pervades the tale since we know who they really are.Actresses dream of having roles like this written for them and here they provide the direct inspiration.

Jude Lucien is every girl's wet dream: tall, dark, and gorgeously attired in black leather. Oh, and just happens to be packing under all that leather -- a Sig Sauer automatic, to be exact. The brooding, troubled drug dealer has it all -- money, women at her beck and call, and a rising empire of illicit activity. But nothing could have prepared her for the entrance of Elizabeth Gardner, the honey-haired investigative reporter bent on discovering the true story about Jude's rise, and subsequent fall, from the DEA. When Elizabeth sets Jude up, she isn't prepared for a fall of her own -- right smack dab in love with the troubled drug lord and the violent world in which she lives. As their lives become more intertwined, Jude and Liz find that neither is what the other expects -- a revelation that could prove disasterous for them both. Lucifer Rising is a must-read, erotic sizzler guaranteed to heat up the night! Don't miss it!
