Brenna Lyons
"I found the world Ms. Lyons created to be realistic. Both main characters had humanistic characteristics but also the genetic makeup of their Xxanian ancestors as well. I blushed more than once, that’s for sure. CLOSE ENOUGH TO HUMAN was an exceptional read." Reviewed by Natasha Smith for Romance Junkies 4.5 Ribbons

I'm looking forward to the event, Rowena! Work and hospital visits have me scurrying around today but I'm planning to check in for a listen to others as soon as I can!

A great cause! I hope folks block the cyberwaves with their rush to generosity for the Caphuchin Soup Kitchen.
