Illustrated Temptations: Aphrodite’s Fire by S. J. Warner


I really enjoyed my last week’s read and I’m like slapping myself for not reading it S. J. Warner‘s debut novel-Aphrodite’s Fire is an evocative, sexy, hot, romantic thriller. I knew from the start that I would enjoy it the same way I enjoyed her poetry writing.

Check out my pREVIEW…

Aphrodite’s Fire
by S. J. Warner


Forced to flee from her past Serena finds herself struggling to survive in the seedy world of strippers, never imagining she could be found.
After changing her identity to hide from those who had massacred her family, her life is far from easy. Just as she begins to feel safe her past catches up with her, a past that remembers her all to well.
One fateful night she finds herself rescued and befriended by Luca, an elegant man that she doesn’t recognise as the threat he could be.
Over the years Luca’s adoration of her memory had kept him sustained as he sought to find the young girl he had fallen in love with. Upon finding her, he finds himself determined to protect her from the dark forces that seek her demise.
What Serena is yet to learn as she finds herself falling in love with Luca is he is in the employ of the very man who needs her silenced.
With warped and twisted enforcers actively hunting them Luca tries to sideline those that hunt her with false information not realising just how close the danger really is.
The two lovers soon find they are snared at every turn. Can they move beyond their pained pasts and the danger of the present to buy themselves a future or will the sadistic enemy they face rip their lives apart?

S.J Warner is a poet and author currently residing in the glorious UK with her husband, three children and a houseful of pets that keep her busy when she’s not writing.

Encouraged by others, S.J began her journey into the world of literature with a short story and has since continued onto self-publication via Amazon.

After the difficult decision to close down her original blog, Warner took a short break from writing as part of a cleansing relaxation period. But it wasn’t too long until she returned to bestow her work upon the world once more.

As of 2014, S.J Warner is the author of two poetry/prose anthologies; Poectica and From the Heart.

Poetica is an anthology of twenty-eight of Warner’s possibly most sinfully erotic poems she has ever penned.

Explore this sinfully, delicious collection of passionate prose and poems that will stir your appetite for the sensual and awaken a taste for the erotic and exotic. As one reader said, “Let S.J’s words transport you to a world of erotic sensuality so enthralling you will be unwilling to leave”. This collection contains adult themes throughout and therefore is NOT intended for minors.

From the Heart is a collection of various pieces from Warner, exploring love, life and heartbreak with a hint of the mystical.

In this collection of poetry and prose S.J takes a step away from the erotic and explores all different aspects of love, life and heartbreak as well as taking a trip into the mystical. Let her lead you through life and emotion with poetry that comes straight from her heart.

While regular installments of poetry and poetry challenges consume this blog, S.J is currently well on her way to completing her first full-length novel with plans for the next already forming.

    Two people against the odds and multiple obstacles beyond the normal day-to-day grind trying to find their ways and each other no matter what comes at them has always intrigued me. Thankfully, S.J. did a wonderful job of creating this Never-easy-Never-dull storyline and just the right mix of emotional charged characters and situations to not only hold interest, but stir up an avalanche of mixed emotions🔥🔥🔥🔥 and sensuality🔥🔥🔥🔥 which kept me glued from start to finish. While the Kindle version is without illustrations, for this old guy and his ♥, it’s a blessing, maybe.
    My imagination at least kept my excitement and blood pressure in check(mostly). Great job, S.J. This is just the beginning. I and my Cardiologist and the Pharmaceutical companies are thankful and hope there is more to come in the near future. Loved it is a complete understatement. ♥♥
