About the Author

Nothing exciting happens in Tawny Taylor's life, unless you count giving the cat a flea dip--a cat can make some fascinating sounds when immersed chin-deep in insecticide--or chasing after a houseful of upchucking kids during flu season. She doesn't travel the world or employ a staff of personal servants. She's not even built like a runway model. She's just your run-of-the-mill Detroit suburban mom and wife.

That's why she writes, for the sheer joy of it. She doesn't need to escape, mind you. Despite being run-of-the-mill, her life is wonderful. She just likes to add some...zip.

Her heroines might resemble herself, or her next door neighbor (sorry Sue), but they are sure to be memorable (she hopes!). And her heroes--inspired by movie stars, her favorite television actors or her husband--are fully capable of delivering one hot happily-ever-after after another. Combined, the characters and plots she weaves bring countless hours of enjoyment to Tawny...and she hopes to readers too!

In the end, that's all the matters to Tawny, bringing a little bit of zip to someone else's life.

This was not a good book to read. The story was all over the place, and it didn't make sense.

Cailey Holom is not just a non cat person; she has a deep rooted feline phobia as she fears these beasts. To help her overcome her inane irrational dread even of tiny house cats, she writes an erotic romance starring the were-lion King Lander Cornelius as his race¿s champion. To her shock she drools and not from the mouth over her fictional hunk.

Cailey is further taken aback when Lander actually arrives in her home. A witch has dispatched him to abduct her, which he does taking her back to his land where he is the king of the Were-kin. Freed from the limitations of a novel, Lander plans to teach his prisoner ecstasy as only a WICKED BEAST can provide.

This is a fun romantic fantasy starring a stunned heroine and the lion king who rules her dreams and soon afterward her reality. The story line contains Cailey¿s segments from were-lion book used sort of as flashbacks within the overall novel; however that device slows down the overall engaging plot of a woman who learned from her lion to stop worrying and strangely love the cat.

Not Tawny Taylor's erotic best, nor her worst. "Wicked Beast" is certainly hot with a plethora of sex scenes...but I didn't really care for, or feel caring from, either of the lead characters in this one.Cailey is a frustrated writer whose writing buddies suggest each write a story about a heroine conquering each writer's most fearful phobia. For Cailey that would be cats. So when her story about a sexy were-lion suddenly comes to life, with her living the role of heroine, she's not too thrilled. Lander has been released from the story and a seer told him if he can find the author, she can perform magic to aid he and his people. So what do you get when you take a Beast King whose words and wishes are never questioned and add in a modern-day heroine? Mayhem.The story is hot, but the plot just didn't do it for me. My favorite book-character-comes-to-life probably has to be from author Kasey Michaels in her 'Maggie' series, so it's not the plot per se that doesn't work. It was more my inability to engage with either of the characters. Could have been a bad day or my mood, but it still wasn't enough to make me want to go back and try again.

I think I was blushing through out the entire book. This would be my first "erotica" book. I asked for books for my birthday and this was one of them... my fiance bought it...lol...
