See what People are saying about Silk and Steel:

Their characters were well developed and understandable. I totally love how very intricate and enmeshed the world they’ve created is. This story had fear, sadness, bravery, brutality, happiness, and of course love. I found it to be quite an interesting and satisfying read. I would highly recommend it to anyone, but especially, to anyone familiar with their Eververse! Way to go, Ladies and keep-em coming.

5 Lyra, Valerie Eisiminger, RORR Reviews

Once again the Price Sisters have taken their unique world and characters and created a world that not only pulls you in, but holds you and won't let go until the last page. Dark fantasy that is fulfilling, sensual and sexy at the same time is the trademark that Stella and Audra Price have developed superbly. I will be counting the days until the next chapter in this universe. My advice is to have a nice drink and curl up in a comfy chair before you start Silk and Steel because you won't be getting up until it's done.

~Jo, Joyfully Reviewed

I loved the way these authors have created their characters. They’re not the usual hero and heroines, especially Snow and Arcady, but they are lovable nonetheless. Edgy, different and very good at what they do, these characters will leave you captivated by their ways and grateful that it isn’t you they’re after.

~5 stars, Sheryl, Ecata Sensual

SILK AND STEEL is scorching hot! Stella and Audra Price demonstrate the true depth of the Eververse series with this incredible sequel. Don't miss out on SILK AND STEEL as this aptly named book is a hit!

~ 4.5 Klovers, Anne, CK2S Kwips and Kritiques

Fall is a busy time for me. I have signings set up and a slew of events in the next few months and lord knows that its going to be wild. With everything going on, Aud and I havent written more then a few sentances in the past few weeks, but im hoping to get back to that soon.

So with the Baltimore event inching ever closer, have been getting all my preparation done by way of filling the goodie bags, painting my book displays, ordering my posters, packing and ironing my table cloths(with Lavender linen spray, lol) and basically just going crazy.

I have heard that the new version of Sugar and Sin is amazing looking in both cover and insides... and that makes me happy, and hopeful for the future of the book and the series in print. a handsome book will sell better then a shoddy one, thats just the nature of it all, but knowing its with a new company and i have control of everything, well that makes it all the better. Im already getting things together for the booksellers that are stocking the books (promo goodies for the store) so its all in the works.

So now im back to working, and hoping no more things come up that require my attention.
