3*Review of Mystique Rogue Diane Taylor


Mystique Rogue is an unusual novel which encompasses more than one genre. There are strong paranormal and suspense elements in the plot as well as fantasy, history and horror but the overriding theme is dark erotic romance.

The sexual description in the book is explicit. A world of sexual dominance and submission is exposed. I found the abuse scenes upsetting. This said if you decide to take the risk you will enjoy a well written, believable story which ensures good triumphs over evil with a little help from the supernatural.

The characters of Carmen, Sean and Duncan are intriguing and multi dimensional. They ground the fantastical elements of the story and ensure the reader’s interest.

Despite the darkness of some of the story’s themes there is also passion, humour and suspense which make it an easy and worthwhile read.

If you’re prepared to step into a dark world and are not easily shocked then Mystique Rogue is for you.

Mystique Rogue contains some content only suitable for adults.

Writing Journey Update

I’m a day late posting this update because yesterday  3 October was my birthday and I gave myself a day off 🙂 I love birthdays not the getting older part but the celebration and family time.  I am particularly lucky because I share my birthday with my lovely daughter who has a great fashion lifestyle blog Seek my Scribbles.

  October has always been a busy time for birthdays in our house. My mum’s birthday was 4th October. Unfortunately she is no longer with me but every year at this time I recall fond memories of our birthdays in past years.

Dragon Legacy

On the writing front I have finished my second  round of edits  for ‘The Dragon Legacy’ and sent them to my editor. As usual  I romped through the tracked changes and comments but failed to remember how long it takes to  try out the changes she suggested in her accompanying email.  Thankfully I  still made my deadline 🙂

I’m looking forward to what comes next with a mixture of anticipation and dread. What if she doesn’t like how I reworked the story ? Still no point worrying about what I can’t control .

I am eagerly anticipating my cover it seems so long since I penned my suggestions for it.  Hopefully it will be this month please 🙂


Look out for my review of ‘The Mystique Rogue’  written by Diane Taylor a fellow author at Crimson Frost Books.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend 🙂
