This isn’t some whimsical bedtime story. This is about the true nature of witches.
These witches don’t fly on broomsticks or wear pointy hats. They are wicked, sly, and repulsive beings who masquerade as sweet, innocent women.
So how can you detect one? If you’re clueless, you better learn fast, because nothing repulses a witch more than children, and she will use all her malevolent abilities to eliminate them.
About the Author
Hello there! It’s great to connect with you. I started my writing journey in the dark erotica genre, but I’ve since expanded my horizons into M/M romance/erotica.
My latest book, Golden Boys, is set to release this July 2021.
I’m a huge believer in love, romance, and embracing your sensual side. I find the power dynamics between two people – whether they’re in love or just lust – to be incredibly captivating.
For me, there’s something deeply meaningful about the way people can communicate through sex. I enjoy pushing my characters to their limits and seeing where their passions take them.
If you’re someone who enjoys exploring the darker side of things, then we might just hit it off. Feel free to drop me a line at [email protected] or find me on Facebook.

Whitney Biancas debut novel, I Know What Love Is, published on August 19, 2014, is a heartfelt tale that explores the complexities of love and relationships. In this contemporary romance genre, Bianca presents a compelling narrative featuring relatable characters and engaging conflicts.
At the core of the story is Ava, a young woman messed up with insecurities and trust issues after a series of failed relationships. She is the quintessential example of someone who has been hurt too many times to be able to trust anyone else.
She meets Derrick, a handsome and charming man who validates her deepest desires and makes her feel safe for the first time in a long time. But can she take the leap of faith and trust him with her heart?
Set in the bustling city of Houston, the novel captures the essence of the place with vivid descriptions of the vibrant atmosphere, including the street art and music festivals. Through the setting, the author highlights the struggles of modern-day urban living, from the rat race of employment to the lack of connection in relationships.
Biancas writing is impressive and well-crafted, and her skill at keeping the reader’s interest is commendable. She balances the tension and romantic elements with grace, creating a novel that is both touching and entertaining.
The pacing is consistent and satisfying, with no dull moments to disrupt the flow of the story. The primary strength of I Know What Love Is lies in the depth and growth of its characters.
Avas journey is depicted with care and subtlety, and her development over the course of the novel is a testament to the author’s ability to create well-rounded and relatable characters. Derricks character is also well-rounded, and their budding relationship is organic and believable.
However, the novel falls short in terms of plot originality. The basic premise of a woman with trust issues finding a new love interest is not fresh, and the story often veers into predictable territory.
Additionally, some of the conflicts are resolved too quickly and neatly, leaving little room for tension and suspense. Despite these flaws, I Know What Love Is is an enjoyable and engaging read.
It is a great choice for those who enjoy contemporary romance novels that explore the complexities of modern-day relationships. As a debut novel, Whitney Bianca shows great potential as an author with a bright future.
I Know What Love Is receives a solid rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars.
