REVIEW
5.0 out of 5 stars: Loved it!!! 
By O. Chambers on March 10, 2016
This was truly a wonderful trilogy. Sylvie and Connor are my newest favorite couple. Ms. Frances blew me away with her wit, humor and erotic sex scenes. This will definitely be a re-read for me. Connor definitely redeemed himself in this last book and I've not quite met a heroine like Sylvie before. Their love story was different than the usual poor girl meets billionaire plot line and romance readers will definitely love this series. Great job Ms. Frances. I wish you had a 4th book in this series. I'm sad that I've finished and its been a while since I read a book that kept be guessing until the very end. Loved it!

EXCERPT
Her jaw dropped.  Connor hadn't left it at threatening calls.  He'd barged into the offices of Bookworm Press and had a verbal and physical altercation with Jameson.  Sylvie couldn't believe what she was reading.  Words led to shoves and their subordinates had to step between them, to stop them from throwing punches at one another.  Sylvie sat shaking her head.  They were fighting over who she was going to work for?  How immature!  She didn't blame Jameson.  She blamed Connor for causing the scene.  This was the same man who couldn't be bothered seeing her Saturday night, who treated her like a discarded toy, a possession he no longer wanted, and now he's threatening to fight people for her?  The whole thing was ridiculous!  Why all this macho posturing? 
Saturday he didn't want her.  Now he wants her?  Make up your frigging mind Connor! 
She didn't understand men.  If you throw something away, if you leave it on the curb, and someone else picks it up, you have no right to demand they give it back.  You don't want it, but you don't want anyone else to have it either?  Connor couldn't have it both ways. 
She didn't belong to him.  He had no say in the matter.  He'd lost that right.
Sylvie decided not to respond to the last email.  Though Jameson was obviously gloating over the fact that Connor was apoplectic about Sylvie leaving his employ, she was afraid that on further reflection he might not want to get in a pissing contest with Connor after all.  Articles on the internet portrayed Connor as a ruthless adversary, a coldhearted corporate cutthroat.  From what she'd been told, he and Jameson had engaged in this stupid competition, this dick-slapping contest, for years.  Maybe it wasn't as big a deal as Sylvie thought it was.  Maybe it was just business as usual for them.

I’m an insomniac which is very helpful when you’re a writer. Once I get an idea in my head, I work out the plot and dialogue at night when it’s quiet. I don’t use an outline, but I do write down specific dialogue or scenes that I want to use in the book. I come up with a very definite idea of what I want each major character in the book to look like, then I go through magazines till I find a model, actor, actress, etc. that looks like them. I pin those pictures up on the wall labeled with my characters names in front of my laptop. I also do short character sketches of each character’s appearance, education, employment, habits, family, behavior traits, etc.


Every day I that I work on a particular chapter, I start my day by going back to the beginning of that chapter and reading and rewriting it where necessary, for clarity, to tighten dialogue, to add needed description, etc. When I finish the chapter, I go back and reread and rewrite it yet again. Then I give it to my husband to read and edit. After he’s done I read it again incorporating his corrections and suggestions and put it aside until the entire book is done. Then we both reread the whole book again for continuity and to make sure that the story isn’t bogging down in places. You need another pair or eyes, another person to read your work and catch your mistakes: formatting mistakes, typos, misspellings, redundancies, inconsistencies in the plot, characters, descriptions, obvious factual mistakes in your stories, etc.

By Paola on January 4, 2016
Amazing, I am 100% In love with these books, I can't wait for the third . I am counting the days for the third book.

5.0 out of 5 starsGreat page turner!
By Carrie on December 15, 2015
Really thrilled with pace of this trilogy. I left book 1 (Taken) dying to know what would happen next. Banished (book 2 in the series) does not disappoint! The book picks up in NYC where Connor sent Sylvie to protect her from the killer. Mia Frances introduces a number of slimy characters who could all easily be the killer. I am dying to know who the killer is and if my suspicions are correct. The relationship between Sylvie and Connor continues to intrigue me -- Sylvie seems to struggle with her position in Connor's bedroom and Connor is starting to struggle with putting her in that position. Cant wait to see where Book 3 ends up!
