embroiled in a world of jealousy, lust, and betrayal. Or
that she would experience a love that surpasses all.
a fan of Ms. Houston's works, I was astonished by this book. The story
is so heartfelt, it practically comes alive before your eyes.
Incredibly enough, I almost found myself searching on Google to see if
this story had any basis in facts, for it was so real and so
effortless to believe in...As Ms. Houston's first attempt at
Historical Romance, I take my hat off and say "bravo" and
urge all historical romances' fans out there to read this story. I
will be eagerly waiting for her next book, hoping she will brave using
her amazing skills at a longer and deeper piece." ~ The Romance
short story slips into one of the cracks of history, and carves out a
private space for itself, in the privacy of Elizabeth I's
bedchamber...While the story is unashamedly and delightfully erotic, I
was initially a little worried that it would delve further into the
potential for power play between Margaret and the queen than I'd be
comfortable with, but Houston avoids the obvious, and instead develops
a very balanced, playful, and heartfelt relationship between the two
a nice little story this was! It’s got all the elements to make it
not only erotic, but fun to read. Like a typical fairytale story with
greed, passion, and evil doings. Although it’s a short story, it was
written with no big gaping holes or areas left untouched with a nice
flow in the story telling. ... Strictly from a visceral experience, I
thought the characters came to life in a real way. ... The
interactions between the two are sweet and hot at the same time. I’m
rather fond of stories in which both parties feel an intense passion
for each other and this comes through in this story. I can't help it,
I'm a bit of a sucker for that type of love in books, one in which
deep loyalty is part of the passion even if it borders on obsessive.
... Bottom line, I enjoyed this book. It left me feeling good and like
I was fully entertained, which is what I want in a book." ~
Loving Venus, Loving Mars
Majesty's Maiden" is sensual and loving story about Queen

innocence and the Queen's compassion make this story heart-warming and
passionate. Their relationship is one which dreams are made." ~

"Enslaving Heaven flows without too
much detail clutter. Ms. Houston does a fine job of placing each character
in the spotlight, while threading in a subtle subplot of intrigue. "
~ Joyfully Reviewed
"Michelle Houston writes very well.
The action scenes are well done, and don't seem incidental to the plot as
in some erotica. There is a plot, and it's not just there to further the
sex. The sex is of the BDSM flavor, and all female/female. It's done quite
well, and there is just the right amount of sex scenes." ~ Manic

gives thought. .... Lyssa, Alya and Nita are engaging characters each
fighting with a scar or blemish in their life. I found myself caring for
each of them. Michelle Houston spins a tale at a good pace, where the

tells a story well, but one I enjoyed." ~ Coffee Time Romance

LIFE NOT LIVED
all have those moments in our lives we wish we could take back.
Natasha has come to regret the choices she has made in her life,
the biggest one being turning away from the one woman she had ever loved.
But thanks to a late night visit from a succubus and a magical
diary that found its way into her life, she can have a second chance.
If she’s willing to take a leap of faith …

"This is my very first
F/F read and I have to say when push comes to shove this is about love,
forgiveness and second chances, capturing the heart of the reader Michelle
Houston has done a wonderful job of enticing the reader to open your heart
to Natasha and her sorrow, her regret and her undying love for Lydia that
will never be quenched." ~ Book Junkie,
Rated a Page Turner
"This was a nice, sweet short
story. Natasha had lived her life for others. She did what was expected of
her by getting a degree in Science and marrying Andrew. Although she tried
to play the good wife, her marriage was doomed to fail eventually since
she would always love her college sweetheart, Lydia. So many people do
this on a daily basis. Marry who they are expected to be with and not
necessarily what their heart tells them, because this is so common it made
the story seem plausible. With a nice sweet story about true love this
author did not go wrong and I give it four cherries." ~ Whipped Cream
As part of the former
413 Remembrance Lane anthology:
"The year is 2000. Natasha divorced
her husband Andrew after almost thirty years together. She didn't feel
right carrying on the lie of loving him when she is attracted to women.
She is visited one night by a red-haired succubus. After pleasuring her to
an extraordinary release, the succubus takes the locket Natasha found in
the house. The succubus tells her that if she continues to live unhappily
she will end up a succubus herself. What will Natasha write in the diary?
Will Natasha be able to save her happiness?
Michelle Houston has
written an awesome story of the difficulty of making decisions with your
heart and mind. She shows the reader the life long heartache of making
choices to appease others. In The Life Not Lived a single epiphany can
change your life for the better." ~ Two Lips Reviews
""The Life Not Lived” is
just a little different from the other stories contained in this
anthology. I liked the way the story was written to emphasize past and
present. It puts the spotlight on Natasha’s decision. The story also
makes me wonder what would happen if we could go back and change a
decision made in the past." ~ Joyfully Reviewed
"THE LIFE NOT LIVED was phenomenal!
I truly fell in love with Natasha. I understood her hesitation at ever
telling anyone that she was a lesbian. Growing up in the times that she
did, she would never have been accepted. However, like she discovered too
late, marrying a man to hide your true self will never work. I wanted
Natasha to find the diary, to make her wish and to find her lost love. I
was really rooting for her throughout. She brought tears to my eyes on
more than one occasion, and the provocative pleasure she discovers will
make your teeth melt. Michelle Houston is a favorite author of mine and I
am so happy to have been able to delve into another one of her
masterpieces yet again!" ~ Romance Junkies, Rated 5 Ribbons!
