This is an erotic, fast-paced thriller that starts off with a bang from page one....all in all, the excellent characterization of Nathan and Rose, and the hot sex, combine into one sizzling package. Run out and grab this one up! Barb Chan--Just Erotic Romance Reviews, Rating: 4.5 Stars,
Heat level: O (Orgasmic!)
Rose and Nathan are two people that have survived their dark pasts’ to try to make an intimate relationship between them work. To say they are strong is an understatement, I think they both deserved accolades for surviving their childhoods’ that were abusive in some forms and so unhappy for them both. I enjoyed reading this story, parts of this book are dark but there are also cheerful and spicy sex scenes that were a pleasure to read, an utterly enjoyable book. Sheryl,

Candy for Her Soul by Sheri Gilmore
This is the first story I have read by Ms. Gilmore, but it will not be the last. She has written an enchanting tale that I enjoyed very much. I greatly enjoyed all three stories in this anthology. Hard Candy is most definitely a keeper! Susan White,

In Candy for her Soul, Sheri Gilmore takes a look at the world of witches, devils and desire. The chemistry between each of the characters make for an engrossing read.
... if you want to be mentally and sexually stimulated, give this anthology a whirl. I thoroughly enjoyed it and give Hard Candy my highest recommendation. Rating: 5 Angels
Candy for Her Soul is the most thought-provoking yarn in the anthology. It covers teenage angst, never-ending love, and has a bi-sexual relationship. …this anthology is not to be missed. Trang, Fallen Angel Reviews
Sheri’s “Candy for her Soul” was mind-blowing! WOW! Angela Camp, Romance Review Today
Damn Sheri, I’m really, REALLY impressed! That was one spectacular witchy ménage tale! Totally incredible! I need to get more of YOUR stuff ASAP! Damn girl you can write a good story! …your writing is BRILLIANT! Morgan Hawke, Co-Author www.darkerotica.net
I read Ms. Gilmore's first book, and was greatly surprised by the quality. I'd been anticipating her next story, and I wasn't let down in the least. The sex was beyond hot, it had both blatant and subtle tones that, together, made every sex scene intense and often emotional. ... Candy for Her Soul was my favorite of this anthology. It had more than I could've hoped for, all the emotion and sexiness of a full-length story. I'm not much for m/m sex, but this short story did it for me. Rating: 4/5 Stars,

Candy For Her Soul - Ms Gilmore has the power to make her reader feel the emotions (pain, confusion, happiness) that the characters are feeling. This is a memorable story and one I gladly recommend. Lisa Lambrecht - In the Library Reviews,
Rating: 8.5 Gargoyles
Maslow's Needs is excellent with a gritty and dangerous feeling to thrill lovers of dark vampire heroes. It's a heady blend of sexual heat and horror. In fact it's hard to decide if the murder mystery or the forbidden love story provides the most chills! From the frightening Nolan to the drop-dead sexy rogue Konstantinos and the cameo by Aunt Mae the secondary characters add depth. Ms Gilmore obviously did her research and the result adds an elegant realism. I highly recommend it! Overall rating: 5 hearts,
Sensuality rating: Explicit, Patrice - The Romance Studio
Maslow’s Needs is a fast paced erotic thriller that I could not put down. I really enjoyed Ms. Gilmore’s writing style. The atmosphere is dark, mysterious, and dangerous. There’s a little bit of bondage and violence but tastefully done. I hope Konstantinos will get his own story. He’s such a charmer. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Gilmore. Kudos!

I thought Maslow's Needs by Sheri Gilmore was a great book! It has it all: murder, suspense, passion...This book is not for the faint of heart, the sexual scenes are very graphic in nature; however, if you enjoy steamy hot sex then this novel is the one for you. Contessa, Romance Junkies Review, Blue Ribbon Rating: 4
Maslow's Needs coaxes you into another world, one of both danger and passion. Once inside, this story refuses to allow you to leave, the characters are compelling and strong, the tale, fraught with danger, intrigue and undeniable passion.
I loved this Maslow's Needs, it encompassed me and taught me what it is to live in the dark. Sheri Gilmore is a very talented writer that brings this story to full and blazing life while reading her words. I highly recommend Maslow's Needs to those that wish to enter the world of the vampire. I will be looking for more works of Sheri Gilmore. Lyonene, Enchanted in Romance, Rated: 5 Unicorns
Rites of Passion (anthology)
Sheri Gilmore pens an explosive tale that you won't forget easily! Rites of Passion is a fantastic anthology! WOW!!!! These authors give us such wonderful, moving stories that without a doubt, this book will go on my "keeper shelf" to be read again and again!!!! Rating: 4.5 Hearts
This is a detailed and sexy story of pagans and vampires living among the humans they need for survival. The descriptions used for rituals were believable, and the dialogue is often dark without falling into melodrama. The lead characters were strong with enough vulnerability to make them interesting. Supporting characters are used as a backdrop for Diana and Jarrett, and balance the storyline. I recommend this great book, which is a follow up to Ms Gilmore’s Maslow's Needs. Rating: 5 Stars, Anya Khan, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
Things We Do in the Dark
Ms. Gilmore writes an exhilarating vampire tale. When these lovers come together the
sexual power is so strong the electrical sparks explode off of them leaving your hair
standing on end. This is a story worth reading many times over. If you like your vampires sexy and your mortal men oozing with animal magnetism, then
you will love this anthology written by three talented authors. Candy Cay,

In this excellent anthology, each author has a wonderful way of telling their extremely different story that has one thing in common: wild unbridled passion!!! In Ms. Gilmore’s vampire story, we find a sexy and highly erotic vampire trading jabs at a desirable reporter that’s hot on his trail. What this author describes made this reviewer quite enthralled and hoped that... a sexy vampire of her own would come by. Rating: 4 Hearts, Dawn, Love Romances
Hot House: Dante & Hayley
2006 Eppie Award Finalist
2005 Passionate Plume Finalist
Dante and Hayley are amazing characters who really touched my heart. The sex scenes are hotter than hell...
... this is a very dark and edgy book that is most definitely not for the faint of heart. Those who are easily offended by use of religious references, such as angels, that are depicted in a nontraditional manner should think twice before reading it.
Personally, I thought Hot House: Dante and Hayley was a terrific book.... Ms. Gilmore is a fabulously talented author who never fails to grab my attention and keep it. , Susan White,

Dante, in all his personas is romantically evil, but very desirable. His story is fascinating. ... I felt compassion for a creature that is truly bad. The sex is creative and very hot... just taking sexual exploration to an extreme level-I loved it!
Hot House: Dante and Haley is an absolutely excellent book, and one I openly recommend. This wonderfully creative book was never insulting to Christians, doesn’t patronize Pagans, and is absolutely wonderful. I cannot wait to read more from Ms Gilmore and her excellent imagination. Rating: 5
Heat level: H, Anya Khan, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
Hot can not describe Hot House: Dante & Hayley; scorching comes closer. Filled with heat and compelling scenes of betrayal and the emergence of faith, Hot House: Dante & Hayley caught my attention and wouldn’t release it. I love a book that has the ability to pull the reader into the story, and that is what Sheri Gilmore has created. It’s pages are filled with intriguing characters, quick and witty dialogue, as well as some extremely explosive scenes. A definite must buy! Rating: 4.5 Roses, Angel, A Romance Review
Hot House: Dante and Hayley by Sheri Gilmore has one of those “huh” factors just begging to tap your brain on the proverbial shoulder and make you think. As an alternate view of the whole good versus evil/one religion versus another; this one is excellent. Rating: 4.5 Stars, Keely, E-CataRomance Reviews
The preparation and forethought that went into creating this stunning success must have been massive. There were ideas taken from biblical truths to the use of Greek Gods, and the addition of God’s angels just left me in awe.
...this author did a phenomenal job and I loved the intricate details that went into creating the hero, heroine and the secondary characters that all make this story fantastic.
...for those of you who can appreciate a different type of creativity believe me you won’t be disappointed. 4.5 Unicorns, Reviewed by Rachelle, Enchanted in Romance
I loved this book. I read it once cover to cover, engrossed by the dark erotic imagery that flowed like blood through the scenes of the story. I read it again to peruse the imaginative mythology. Finally, I read it a third time to commit the tale to memory.
"Hot House: Dante and Haley" contains intensely explicit, supernatural BDSM. The scenes are integral to the plot, and well crafted. The sexual appetites of the creatures and inhabitants of Hell are, at times, vividly sadistic. I loved it! A Highly Recommended Read! 5 Scorching Licks, Reviewed by Jade Rivers from the Scarlet Scribe
Like Peter Hitchen's... Gilmore illustrates a very ambitious, dark (non-religious) fantasy view of a shake up of Dante's Inferno. This is a well-conceived erotic paranormal, a duality of ...biblical proportions with developed characters...tackling the issue of the redemptive power of love. ...a dark vision of a very graphic and sexual purgatory.

Eye For An Eye
The Preacher’s Daughters: Eye for an Eye is a great story! Ms Gilmore’s research into Voudon and Santeria religions makes the climax exciting and mysterious. She adds a taste of realism that shades a deeper dimension to the story. Sheri Gilmore has another winner with An Eye for an Eye. The Preacher’s Daughters series will be one to watch. Rating: 5 Stars, Heat level: O, Patrice Storie, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
Eye for an Eye is probably the most vanilla story Ms. Gilmore has written. I mean this in a good way, even though I've loved all her stories, kinky or not. A particular scene involving hair in the very beginning was probably the most sensual thing I've ever read, and yet it didn't exactly involve sex. I had chills (the good kind) running down my back from imagining it, and even now, it's still a turn-on. I loved the little details like this. Eye for an Eye makes me anxious for the next story in the series, especially when thinking of one red-and-purple-haired hunk. Rating: 5 Stars, Heat level: O, Dani Jacquel, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
!Sheri Gilmore has written a story guaranteed to keep you reading nonstop until the very last sentence. This book has everything you could wish for in a paranormal romance: kinky sex, magic, suspense and non-stop action. I am very impressed with the story line and the knowledge that was poured into it.

Hot House 2: Michael & Mercy
The passion that ignites... is explosive, emotionally intense and very erotic. The varied sex goes from nightmarish to pleasureful and from dreamlike to erotic as befits the Hell setting. The tastefully done BDSM, m/m, and ménage, will have you bringing out all your toys. Reviewer: Tallyn Porter, JERR,
Rating: 5 Stars
Sheri Gilmore brings together wicked intent, innocent seduction and breath stealing decadence.
... risqué love scenes that leave a reader panting for breath, ...and definitely in need of a dry pair of panties. Evil plots thicken from page one and Ms. Gilmore delivers bad-guys that everyone can love to hate. If you are not thinking "Yummy" with at least every other page as you consume this morsel; I am not sure that you and I are reading the same book. Now, after a cold shower to bring coherence to my brain, my only thought regarding this series is "Please say that there are more stories coming! Soon!"
Warning: This book contains male with male love scenes and bondage. If this type of thing offends or distresses you, please do us all a favor and exercise your right not to read this book. Rating: 5 Stars, Reviewer: Keely Skillman, e-CataRomance Reviews
Two Words: BUY THIS! I have never before been so engrossed in a book like this one. Not only does Ms. Gilmore show her creativity, but also her blending of Greek myth's with the Creator, merge into a natural blend that leaves readers breathless. I am only sorry that I did not read her first Hot House book! Overall rating: 5 Hearts, Reviewer: Linda Bass, The Romance Studio
...dark erotica of the most deliciously demonic kind. Gilmore does an amazing job mixing bits of BDSM and homoerotic sex with an untraditional romance element. ...I was not disappointed in the intensity of the chemical attraction among the lead characters. Reviewer: Betsy Gallup, TCM Reviews
Ms. Gilmore has written a captivating story ... some bondage and some homosexual interaction, but if that doesn't bother you, then I recommend this book. Reviewed by Astraea, Enchanted Ramblings
Hot House 2: Michael and Mercy explores the dark wants and desires deep within. Ms. Gilmore does a wonderful job portraying the conflicting feelings he (Michael)experiences, making this book so much richer and more complex. Mercy is just as confused. She’s discovering things about herself and her heritage, which she must come to terms with...a... balance of dominance and submission.
Be warned, the sexual encounters in this book are explosive and explicit, leaving very little to the imagination. If you like a little good and evil, some fantasy and mythology, and a whole lot of sizzling sex, read Hot House 2: Michael and Mercy. You won’t be disappointed! Rating: 4 Angels,
Reviewed by: Trang, Fallen Angel Reviews
Michael is a sharply developed character... Ms. Gilmore has written a wonderful follow up to this series.

I am a huge fan of Ms. Gilmore's and this terrific book only makes me want to read more of her work. The concept of reincarnation that their relationship revolves around makes the book even more fascinating. While the book can be read as a stand alone, I recommend reading the first book in the series, Eye for an Eye as it gives additional insight into Starr's family life. I highly recommend this sensational story to fans of the paranormal who, like me, love a good tale of the unusual. Rating: 4 cups, Susan White,
Reviewer for Coffee Time Romance,
Reviewer for Karen Find Out About New Books
I thoroughly loved this book because it explores attitudes and behaviors reminiscent of the burning of witches at the stake. Starr's attitude towards those that see her religion as a witch as being unnatural and against nature itself was a refreshing and invigorating experience because no matter what those people thought, Starr stood her ground and made everyone else take notice of her strength. And when Mason finally saw her for who she really was, it made me so proud I almost cried.
Sheri Gilmore has penned a novel that makes the paranormal aspects seem almost normal. If you enjoy characters that would do anything to be with the people they love then this is a book you must get because it will blow your mind, in a very nice way. Rating: 4 Stars, Sheryl, E-cataromance Reviews
Taking on the cloth is one of the riskiest things I feel an erotica author can do for hazard
of alienating readers. Ms. Gilmore seems to have a knack for intriguing readers with politically incorrect stories of lust
surrounded by powerful magic and extreme passions. Witching Hours is scandalous in an arousing way and has me
anxiously awaiting the story of the last Chappel sister and wondering how much further can the corruption of
innocents be taken. Rating: 4 Fleur de Lis, Desiree Farrell, Erotic Escapades
The love scenes are sensual, erotic flights of fantasy that will keep you glued to the page. This story is wonderful! The sisters in this story are so unique and have such depth of character both in this present story and in their past lives that I cannot wait to read the rest of the books in the series. This book is definitely addictive as the author casts her spell over you. Her writing is superb and the plots interweave beautifully. I thoroughly devoured this book and enjoyed every sinful morsel.
