Here's What Some of Our Readers Are Saying
This was the first book I’ve read by C. Chilove, but I certainly hope it’s not the last! She has a wonderful gift of writing atmospheric and life-like, sexy, erotic, heart-grabbing scenes that make us feel like we are really there inside the story and the characters’ heads (and beds!), as opposed to it all just being “told” to us, as so many authors make the mistake of doing. I like that this book didn’t feel stale or derivative, but instead like a romantic, almost spiritual, new niche of literary erotic romance/drama that serves well to help diversify a somewhat cookie-cutter genre (in my opinion)... Overall the entire novel was one that I thought was nicely written and delivered an emotional win in the end, even if bittersweet. Would like to read more from C. Chilove.

Unlocked: Rekindled Flames” by C. Chilove has to be one of the most original and compelling novels I’ve read in a while. I was completely drawn in from the get-go, and absolutely loved Chilove’s narrative voice of being inside Alonna’s POV, and the way she does such great dialogue with the characters. And Donovan is so HOT (swoon!!!)It’s not overdone where we know every last bit but you more FEEL like you really know them. The prose and narrative were some of the best I’ve encountered lately in any genre (not just for ‘romance’) –but beautiful and descriptive and with a literary flow. You cannot fake that, and Chilove has it in spades. It was an emotional, sexxxxxy, and compelling ‘journey’ from the intriguing beginning to the end, and not one I’ll soon forget. There are some minor proofing and editing issues, nothing too terrible. Would love to read more from this author in the future!
In one word, this book is AMAZING! It’s realistic and pleasantly controversial context, climatic twists, and romantic theme has my mind doing triple-double-somersaults. It has awakened a part of me that has been asleep for a very long time. It has restored my belief in pure love — despite the journey required. Unlocked is a breath of fresh air. It’s evocation of feelings, thoughts, and convictions shined light in dark places. I am grateful, and I can’t wait to see what else C. Chilove has in store for us.

Romance, Love, Lust, …and Everything in Between: Twin Flames
What happens if destiny prevails and we meet our soulmate? What happens when we come in contact with the one?
Our heart skips a beat, adrenaline rushes, and our souls construct a lovely symphony. You are destined to love, meant to be. It’s the age old story of you for me. It’s the unbreakable bond of love that has followed two souls since the beginning of time. Many people call it love at first sight, but what if it isn’t first sight? What if this is an endless plight of the love that has been shared between two souls since the beginning of time. Some call it Soulmates, I call it Twin Flames.

Who sent Alonna the flowers?
Answer: It wasn’t Donovan.
Why does Donovan’s mom hate Alonna so much?
Answer: Vivienne Derbinay is a complex character with many layers. More of which is uncovered in the upcoming release. But let me give some context from what you’ve read so far. Vivienne is Old Guard, Elite, and just plain out snooty. Alonna doesn’t come from the “background” she would prefer for Donovan. Additionally, Alonna is the type of woman who won’t cater to Donovan, and Vivienne sees that. She sees Alonna could be the one to break this strong, masculine son she’s devoted her life too.
Do you consider the story paranormal?
Answer: Unlocked: Rekindled Flames, uniquely explores the soul mate phenomenon and tells the story of reincarnated lovers. To some this may be paranormal. For others who believe in the premise of reincarnation (a somewhat taboo topic in the west)– this is simply the story of an intricately woven pattern of lives withstanding the tests of time to make love right because the souls have finally agreed.
How can Donovan flirt with Morgan if Alonna is his flame?
Answer: Many comments have come in regarding Donovan’s attraction to Morgan…or how he responded to her during the wedding. Simply, there is something called the law of physical attraction. I think to not have him attracted to Morgan would have been unrealistic. Men…and women can be in love (head over heels) with one person and yet find another attractive. Flirting is a natural reaction. Ultimately, Donovan never looked at Morgan as more than a distraction.
