Praise for S.E.COX and House of HorrorEdit
PRLog (Press Release) – Aug 07, 2009 – United Kingdom – S.E. Cox has been writing on and off for ten years. She began her first novel at the age of fifteen, and has since gone on to write several short stories. She now lives in the small town of Cannock in the West Midlands, England with her two daughters, Libby-Ann and Lacey-Mae.
2008 saw S. E. Cox, take the challenge of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), and complete her 50,000 word Novel “False Awakenings,” in just twenty-nine days. It should be ready for publication for 2010. “Forbidden Love,” her recently released novel is the first installment of the Rosella series, “Hybrid Theory,” the sequel, will be available later on in the year.
About Forbidden Love:
Rosella is a human - vampire who falls in love with the son of her family's enemy, Prince Jonas. A forbidden Love, vampire romance, set in an English high school goes terribly wrong, when each of their families refuse to accept their love for each other. Forbidden Love is Romeo and Juliet for vampire lovers in the 21st Century. Use this link to purchase your own copy of Forbidden Love by S. E. Cox
Recent review of Forbidden Love:
Forbidden Love by S. E. Cox is all about a clan of pure blood vampires, and a hybrid clan that meld in with humans to survive. Their desires for life are no different from the rest of us. They want what we all want – Love. S.E. Cox describes it best: “Love is like a war -- easy to start, hard to end and impossible to forget.”
You will identify with Rose and her desire for first love. Along with the sacrifices made for it. Forbidden Love is the first in the Rosella series. This is a great read, a wonderfully told story that you will find difficult to put down. Congratulations, S. E. Cox on a magnificent addition to vampire lore. I am looking forward to more from this talented writer!
