I've been very, very busy lately. I've banged out 63K words on the follow-up to Re/Bound (working title is Learning Curve) and I'm working on something special for those of you who want a little more from Awakenings.
In the meantime, Out of My League has earned a 5 Sweetheart review rating from The Romance Studio. Here's a sample of Shannon's review: "With Out of My League, the very talented pen of author Michele Zurlo sweeps the reader away, demonstrating her talent for creating an original, fascinating and a highly seductive romance that readers can embrace and enjoy. The combination of remarkably real, vulnerable and irresistible characters and also the tug-at-the-heartstrings storytelling, which takes the reader from the first page to the last and leave them charmed, has this reader ready for more from this wonderful author."

I like that she called me talented and wonderful. My wife might disagree, arguing that I don't need a bigger head. Well, the size of my ego is her fault in the first place. She's the one continually encouraging me and telling me I can do anything.
In other news, Just Erotic Romance Reviews gave Re/Bound a 4.5-star rating, noting: "Re/Bound is a BDSM story with a few twists, including ropes and suspense, that just makes for a great read. The love story of Malcolm and Darcy is sweet and real. The suspense makes for a complex story that intertwines so beautifully with the sex. From the first Dom/sub experience between Darcy and Malcolm as strangers, the sexual chemistry just burns you from the inside. Zurlo gave the readers a special treat with Re/Bound."

And lastly, my hair is about 5 inches shorter, but it looks good. Maybe the universe was trying to tell me I needed a new look.
