Rachelle Chase has done an outstanding job creating characters that mesmerizes the reader and leaves them wanting more.”
~Angel, Romance Junkies
"I truly enjoy your style of writing, not to mention your subject matter … You have a wonderful talent of describing details so realistically that I was able to see the scene in my minds eye. The fact that you have a strong woman, made even more powerful because she allows herself relinquish control, adds erotic realism and a strength of character that the wild side in all of us can relate to. Keep up the great work and keep them coming! I always love a good 'Chase' and it's nice to finally read an author that writes what many of us "Secretly" want to read."
~Katherine Scacchetti, Ballston Book House Review
