For me, Gwen Hayes’ debut, FALLING UNDER, is a slice of gourmet dark chocolate torte. It’s the scrumptious, forbidden dessert I shouldn’t be allowed to order–the one I can’t resist devouring.

Sound delicious? Take a look at the ingredients:

1 brilliant, incredibly introspective yet tragically repressed heroine with caramel curls.

1 smoldering, completely swoon-worthy yet recklessly smitten bloke in tails and a cravat.

2 fiercely loyal best friends

1 cross-dressing psychic

1 haunting string quartet

A dash of invocation and exorcism

1/2 dozen nights in a kingdom of dark, forbidden dreams.

1,001 moments of hot, sizzling, flush cheeked romantic suspense.

Gwen Hayes combines these elements to concoct an irresistible book. If you’re like me, and have a heartbreaking weakness for dark heroes like Heathcliff and Rochester, you’ll love FALLING UNDER.

Hungry for more? Try this recipe for Deep, Dark Chocolate Cake. It’s not as dangerously sinful as Haden Black, but it’s *almost* as delicious.

      I hafta admit, Gwen. You really pushed all the right buttons for me with this one. The love scenes were WHOA, IS IT HOT IN HERE OR WHAT? I was pretty much, “Yeah, Theia, who cares if your very soul is at stake, just kiss that bloke!”

    Souls are overrated.
