I loved this book!
Wow, Susan Gabriel has done it again. Intriguing characters, witty dialogue and somehow she has woven it all into a tale of romance and suspense. If you want a can't-put-it-down book...this is the one!

Only the Lonely by Susan Gabriel Dramatic Storyline Switch Creates Compelling Ending!

A Sensuous Journey from Black Velvet Seductions has once again surprised me with the unique book—Only the Lonely by Susan Gabriel!

The dramatic switch that ended this book left a much more lasting impression on this reader than the one that most of us would have expected. Susan Gabriel has succeeded in creating sympathy, understanding, and even admiration for her lead vampire character, in Only the Lonely. The beginning was fun; the ending memorable—you can’t lose with that combination! Highly recommended, with alert for the adult content

"Only the Lonely" by Susan Gabriel is a sultry Southern vampire tale with vivid characters and twists and turns to keep you enthralled. This is a highly erotic paranormal romantic suspense story. Just remember, we can't always see what is out there in the dark, watching and waiting. However, it can always see us....inside and out!

The Stir of Echo, 5 star review
Echo Sullivan is clairaudient. She is unsure of her gift or how to use it. Her parents want her to move into their house in the suburbs and she is hoping to find some answers. She also needs a man, a real man who can dominate her. Echo should really be careful of what she wishes because she just might get more then she bargained for.
Flynn has been waiting for the right time and the right place to meet Echo. Now he just needs to take it slow so he doesn't scare her off. He has secrets that could push her away for good.
Is Flynn man enough to dominate Echo? Does Echo really want to be dominated or is it a fleeing fantasy?
The Stir of Echo is very intriguing and dark. Ms. Gabriel did a wonderful job showing the struggles that Echo had. Echo isn't sure what she wants and you feel the power of that in Ms. Gabriel's words. Flynn is just the man to show Echo what she really needs and Ms. Gabriel did a wonderful job making their story come alive. Susan Gabriel hints at Flynn's secret, but doesn't come right out with it. I love a book that can keep me guessing.  I loved the dream scene that Echo had and I also loved the ending. A little mystery is a nice bonus to any romance! Not to mention the hot scene in the costume shop. OH MY!! The Stir of Echo is hot with a capital H!!!

Another 5 Star Reader review for The Stir of Echo
I wasn't sure quite what to expect from reading The Stir of Echo by Susan Gabriel. That turned out to be a good thing because it was an unexpected delight of a novel.
I knew from reading sample chapters at www.blackvelvetseductions.com that I was intrigued by the Celtic connection and Echo's special ability. I knew Flynn was a man I couldn't resist reading about. Who could resist that Irish accent and his calling Echo a lovely lass or that twinkle in his eyes?
What I didn't know was just how wonderful it would be to read this novel because of Susan Gabriel's excellent writing. It was like going to a movie with a friend--a movie that drew me in until I felt like I was Echo.
The story grew more and more interesting, the pacing was just right, the romance both believable and dreamy. I loved the story dramatized in the pages of The Stir of Echo from beginning to end.

Rating: 5 Enchantmentstotally enjoyed this book and the love, mystery and fantasy completely captivated me. I could not put the story down, I read it in one sitting, and then proceeded to write my review before the magic wore off, if it ever will. The love story between Echo and Flynn was so incredibly romantic, a tale based on legend painted by Susan Gabriel on the canvas of the believable. Susan Gabriel creates vivid word pictures that kept the artist in me completely captivated, I am certain to get a picture out of this tale. The story has erotic parts intimately woven in its entirety. Colors of love, tenderness, and mystery are artistically brushed throughout this story in captivating prose, as Flynn and Echo, soul mates, realize they were destined for each other, and as they learn to trust one another.

Susan Gabriel has penned a story that  heated up nicely once Flynn embraced Echo's fantasy! Both these people hold secrets that cannot be revealed in the light of day, and Echo is afraid to place her
trust and heart in any man's hands. Flynn knows he dare not reveal his own ancestry until he has won his lady's heart, but will love be enough to see them through? The Stir of Echo is a white hot, steamy, and sexy tale. Delightful characters and a dynamite ending make this a recommended read. The Stir of Echo is definitely a keeper!
