Reviews

Naomi — Fallen Angel Reviews

“Banner’s Bonus totally blew me away! I absolutely loved every page. It leaves you breathless, thoroughly shaken, laughing, and in love with its hero. It is a fast paced adventure, taking readers on the ride of their life. Be prepared for some fairly intense emotions. The sexual tension is clear and the air steams with the unresolved issue. This resolution is an essential part of the plot and character development, and is another tactic that this author uses to put the reader at ease…the blows their socks off! Her prose is quite fast flowing and unique; almost poetic at times. Nick grabbed me right from the first chapter, and in the conclusion, this reader was sincerely touched by his evolution. Amazingly, this author turns a perfect man into a knight in shining armour. This is a must-have for fans of Sci-Fi Futuristic Romance. Definitely a 5 Angels keeper!”

“I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Fast Paced! Action packed! An alpha hero to die for. THIS STORY WAS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! The action scenes were so well written, I felt as though I was right there. Details were not left out because this author remembers to include the five senses when she writes.

10 Stars Review Centre

“Carole Ann Lee’s Banner’s Bonus is a wonderful read with Characters you can’t help but love. The chemistry and sexual tension, the fast paced action…it all makes for a story you won’t want to see come to and end. I can hardly wait for Solar Wind to come out next. And then… hopefully each of Banner’s brothers will have a story of their own.”

Reviewer — Frost — Dark Angel Reviews

“Author Carole Ann Lee has a gift for writing science fiction in a realistic and believable manner. The future and space travel come alive. Readers will delight in the constantly escalating tension between the two protagonists, Nick and Tressa, both of whom are strong-minded and independent individuals determined to follow their own respective paths. Adventure, danger, and excitement keep readers turning pages eagerly. BANNER’S BONUS is a good introduction to the work of a fine writer of science fiction and will encourage readers to also pick up the next volume, SOLAR WIND, which shares a universe and some main characters with BANNER’S BONUS.”

Reviewer — Chamomile — The Long and the Short of It

“Banner’s Bonus is a rousing adventure that delves into power, corruption, redemption and fear as well as the strength of the human spirit. I was drawn into the story’s energy from the very first page. Tressa is the perfect balance of confident woman and naïve little girl, with a little soft-heartedness and fierce warrior mixed in to make her complicated yet adorable. Nick is a buff, brawny, rogue type with bulging muscles and battle scars, both to his body and his heart. In my opinion, he’s the quintessential hero — he is drop dead gorgeous, but becomes a shameless playboy after a bitter heartbreak in his youth. It does contain some violence but it is very well written. I winced in compassion as I read both the physical and mental affects of the many blows the recipient sustains during an intense scene. I enjoyed the complexity of the plot which includes many thrilling challenges for them to meet and overcome. The love story between Tressa and Nick is tantalizingly slow to mature but definitely worth the wait.”

Janie Franz — MyShelf.com

“In Banner’s Bonus, as with Solar Wind, I found Banner’s family to be one of the most interesting parts of the story. Here, Zeke Slater enters the picture as trusted friend and pseudo-brother. This is great space opera adventure with enough romance to have readers fanning themselves.”

Carole Ann Lee Bio

Carole Ann LeeCarole Ann Lee is a native of Ohio. Along with their two children, Dave and Sharon, she resides with her own special hero who shares her crazy sense of humor and love for animals.

Extended family members include Dumper, their 10-year old cat. Their newest member, a Belgian Shepherd puppy named Hunter, and Nacoma, their daughter’s medicine hat paint horse who is just as much a part of the family and just as spoiled as the other pets.

Having always been fascinated by the thought of space travel, yet equally captivated by the romance of the tall sailing ships, Carole Ann’s goal has been to integrate the two worlds in a futuristic romance that sizzles with both high tech as well as the swashbuckling intensity of a high seas adventure.

Carole Ann began writing on a lark in the early nineties. In 1994, at a writer’s conference, she had the privilege of meeting and submitting BRIAN’S BONES to a New York editor. The results were positive when he expressed a serious interest and asked for the entire manuscript. Eleven months later, BRIAN’S BONES was on the shelves.

Both BRIAN’S BONES and SOLAR ECLIPSE have won awards in national writing contests. To name a few: In 1997 BRIAN’S BONES placed 2nd as an “already published work” in RWA’s “Heart of The West” contest. In that same contest SOLAR ECLIPSE also placed 2nd as “unpublished work by a published author”. See Awards.

Also in 1997 SOLAR ECLIPSE was entered into RWA’s “On The Far Side” contest where it took First Place.
