"The Lotus Blossom Chronicles" contains two stories about enduring through hardship and finding love."Siren's Seduction" by Jax Cassidy is a contemporary story with a very lush, dreamy quality. The author's writing is rich, lyrical, and dripping with sensuality.

I enjoyed both stories and will be interested to see what's next from these authors.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on an advance copy of 'The Lotus Blossom Chronicles ' and I can honestly say that I had no idea the romance genre could be so interesting. If the 'traditional' romance novel were a recipe, for example, the authors of this title have taken the recipe and made it entirely their own. They've added just the right amounts of passion, suspense and eroticism to please the most discriminating palate. Add a contemporary, multi-ethnic approach, and the dish becomes something exotic, both spicy and sweet, and entirely satisfying.
