Tuesday Review!

A Slave’s Heart by Mahogany SilverRain

Hi, My readers! πŸ˜€ hope everyone is having some super fun bookish adventures. πŸ˜€ I have the day off from my two real jobs (writing is a job too, I just don’t get enough $ to do it full time. Some day!) So, I’ve been working on my writing, sharing some links on Facebook (basically the only Promotion I can afford right now), and now I’m doing so blogging.

lol. clearly, right?

Anyway! I took a break and read one of this week’s short stories selections. I picked A Slave’s heart, because It sounded really fun, and it was short. I love me some shorts. πŸ˜€

Captain William James is a private slave trader from Britain. He has transported many Africans from the West African coastline to work in the sugar plantations of Barbados and Jamaica. He meets Sirene, a West African priestess of Oshun whose drum walk (dance) calls to him one cool summer night. He is enchanted by her beauty and strength as he watches her dance, but can she capture his heart and free his mind of ignorance and prejudice against her people?Β 

my rating? 3.5 stars! here’s my rating. πŸ˜€ I also shared a quick little review of it over on my Goodreads page. πŸ˜€

πŸ˜€ I liked the story. It was good! Well written and interesting. πŸ˜€Β The details for the clothing were really nice. And the waterfall scene were great! ❀

I just wish it had been longer! It was really good as it was, don’t get me wrong. I just would have loved more time to get to know the characters, setting, and culture. And I’d have loved to have seen more conflict, to have seen our two lovers grow closer over time.Β 

Still, it was fun! πŸ˜€ I definitely recommend it if you like short stories and historical and interracial romance stories. πŸ˜€

If Ms. SilverRain ever decided to do a longer, more detailed version of this, I would SO be down for it! hint, hint! ❀ it’d make SUCH a great novel! especially if there was a paperback version of it. I adore physical books! ❀

Thanks for reading guys! be sure to check this one out if your a romance fan. I am! (funny considering how messed up some of my own writing is. Lol. I love the screaming Disturbed my sister/editor so bad, she refused to go into a pet store with me. lol.)

Be sure and join me tomorrow for a writing update post! πŸ˜€ Happy Reading, everyone! Love, Lennie! ❀
