Praise for the Seaclusion Series:
Poison: “The romance in this book isn’t traditional. It’s realistic. Cassie had a self-destruct personality and John always went the way of least resistance. The harm that these two caused each other due to this was heartbreaking to read. I love finding new authors that bring a fresh and different voice. This is going to be a 4 book series. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.” ~ Cindy, SnS review– 4 stars

Poison: “This was a great story that really read true-to-life – a woman attempts to stay one step ahead of the psychotic ex that is stalking her and her son….This story took me all over the place. There was, of course, romance but there was also suspense and a bit of action and some humor” ~ Marissa, Romancing the Book- 4 stars

Notorious: “From here we get to go on the emotional healing journey with Kelly and Luke. Is that healing a smooth process – No. Do both Kelly and Luke keep throwing up roadblocks to prevent that process – Yes. Was it as a reader an incredibly journey from start to finish – Yes. There are two more books in this series and I cannot wait to see what the author has in store for Sarah…” –Cindy, SnS review- 4 stars

Seclusion: “There is just no way to accurately describe the emotions you feel when reading this book… This is why I read. For the emotional depth that’s written on pages that pull you in to the story so deeply you feel every emotion straight through to your core. This author never fails to amaze me with her stories. I devour them and Angie Peters and Sean Langston’s heartbreaking story that spans over 10 years gripped me from the start of their story in Secrets to its conclusion in Seclusion.” ~Cindy, SnS Reviews, 5 stars

Seclusion: “Realistic Romance at it’s finest… Leanne Davis has done something that not many romance writers do. She writes a sub-genre that is realistic romance. SECLUSION is not escapism–these are flawed people that you could meet anywhere who are trying to work through the problems of life. They are not millionaires nor are they unbelievably gorgeous. But their story is worth telling and gives hope to those in similar situations.” ~ Dot Dittman- Fresh Fiction
