Silver star!

Well, I got a silver star award from JERR! (Just erotic romance reviews!)
I'm so excited - it means a lot to me, and I just had to post part of it!
I also wanted to say that for a writer this sort of award is Very Important. It's what keeps me writing, it's proof that the months spent writing and the months editing were all worth it. It also makes me want to start writing again - so thank you Miaka!

"...It was my absolute pleasure to review two of Samantha Winston's books for this edition of the newsletter and while I loved both, this one was my favorite. My Fair Pixie was completely absorbing, wholly stimulating and totally hilarious. This was the most fun I've had reading a story in a long time. Ms. Winston has a talent for creating characters that grab your attention and capture your heart. I usually don't expect to feel such an attachment to characters in a book but Sebastian and Jessica were an absolutely adorable couple, one that I wish I knew in real life. Their solid devotion to each other was awe-inspiring despite terrible and seemingly insurmountable odds. Jessica was a spunky heroine (of course since when are pixies not spunky?) and was willing to go to extremes to impress those who didn't want to see her with Sebastian. Sebastian was charming, sexy in a way that only a vampire can be, and an all around stand up guy. He was willing to commit social suicide, as well as risk the ire of his domineering mother and the rest of his clan to be with his soulmate.The sex between Jessica and Sebastian was mind-blowingly erotic. I never thought I'd be so aroused by spanking, but Ms. Winston makes it seem like something I need to add to my arsenal. There were several scenes between these characters that made me reconsider the wisdom of reading the story away from home.Outstanding, amazing, a story I will read again and again are all words I would use to describe this book. There isn't one thing I didn't love about My Fair Pixie. It would be tragic if Sebastian and Jessica didn't appear in other Samantha Winston stories. I will certainly remember these wonderful characters for a long time to come. For all these reasons, I found My Fair Pixie deserving of the Silver Star Award."
