4 Stars: "These slightly connected tales
are exceptionally good. The characters are well developed, and the
world-building is well done without being overwhelmingly technical. The heroes
are everything that heroes should be, and the heroines are strong without losing
their femininity." —Romantic

"The Miner's Wife is
a story that will capture your attention
and keep it. With an intriguing plot,
engaging characters and explosive sex,
this story has it all. Hannah's background
is almost unbelievable. The quick and
powerful rise of the new Tiberius Group
has surprised everyone, especially the
women. Their antiquated views of women and
their place in society are in direct
opposition to what she's worked so hard
for all of her life. When she meets
Brutal, she expects him to treat her in
the same manner that her father and her
previous husband did. But he eventually
surprises her, showing her gentleness,
caring and support throughout the story
which she hadn't received from the men who
were supposed to care for her. Brutal is a
bio-genetically engineered man, who must
have sex in order to recharge his
batteries. I loved this! Brutal is
definitely all man, strong, sexy and a
hard worker. Not only does he need sex, he
gets a better charge from his partner's
satisfaction, and boy, does he satisfy!
Hannah and Brutal are highly combustible,
enjoying their sexual escapades and
explorations. But what I really liked
about Brutal was his caring attitude
toward Hannah. He allows her the
opportunity to work and show her
intelligence and believed in her when no
one else would. The pace of this story is
just right, telling about their
backgrounds then quickly moving to their
relationship. With a little danger from
Brutal's nemesis and a surprise from
Hannah's past, you won't find one minute
of boredom is this story. Add this one to
your must read list and keep on the lookout for the other Wives Tales!"
5 Angels: "Lara Santiago has
created a wonderful story mixed with
futuristic elements, uncertainty of ones
emotions, and a splash of danger from an
evil miner. Hannah is a feisty,
charismatic woman that is passionate and
has a personality that readers will love.
Brutal, although he can be very deadly,
offers readers a possessive and protective
man that is honorable regardless of the
arrangement between Hannah and him. The
chemistry between Brutal and Hannah is
explosive, mind-blowing, and quite
tantalizing to say the least. As the plot
intensifies, readers will be pleased with a
couple of surprises along the way. These
surprises will only make the readers love
Brutal more and cheer for Hannah to have
what she wants. The Miner’s Wife is
a wonderful story about finding love when
and where you aren’t looking for it!"
—Jessica, Fallen Angel
Tattoos: "The Miner’s Wife by Lara Santiago is a great book. I love the premise and plot.
I could not put the book down. There is action, suspense, and romance all combined to make a reader’s heart race.
The well developed characters grow as the story progresses. Brutal looks like a gruff rough miner but he has a heart of gold.
His tenderness and understanding towards Hannah started my heart to fluttering.
Hannah is a modern independent woman forced under the new world order’s thumb.
The determination and strength she possesses helps her succeed in her changing world.
The racy love scenes between Hannah and Brutal leave little to the imagination.
An instant attraction bonds these two lovers and propels them into a sensual world of desire and passion.
I would gladly live on another planet for a man like Brutal.
Ms. Santiago has created a vivid futuristic story for the romantic.
I can not wait for her next work." —Ophelia,
Hearts: The Romance Studio 2006 CAPA
Nominee. "This book is a never-ending
adventure, and readers will find
themselves wrapped up in the drama that
Brutal and Hannah create. Brutal lives up
to his name with a dark and sensual air
that readers will love. Hannah is a free
spirit who finds that maybe all men aren't
alike. The love scenes are so hot, the
pages almost burn with the heat. This is
the first book I have read by Lara
Santiago and Siren Publishing. I can
certainly say that I will be on the
lookout for more of this author's work in

[The Wives Tales 2]
2006 Reviewers' Choice Award Nominee: "Once again Lara Santiago has written an intriguing and engaging story in
The Executive's Wife. Having waited ever so patiently for this follow up to
The Miner's Wife, I can honestly say it was worth it. Sophie and Matt have an explosive chemistry which is immediately apparent. Initially, they are concerned with the employer/employee relationship but once the Tiberius Group institutes
its changes, all bets are off. Matt will use any means at his disposal to get the one woman he wants. Sophie's character may seem a little unruffled at first, but it is soon obvious that she's got a will of steel and will do anything in her power to help those that she loves. The premise of this story follows the previous in that Matt is bio-genetically engineered but there are subtle differences. The adversity that they immediately face in their marriage adds an intensity and urgency to their relationship which is revealed in their frequent lovemaking. In addition to all of that, this well paced story also has a lot of suspense and even a few surprising twists in the plot.
The Executive's Wife is a must read for fans of Ms. Santiago as well as the Wives Tales."
4.5 Stars/Hot: "The Wives Tales 2:
The Executive’s Wife was refreshing and scary at the same time. I’m sure someone in the world would love nothing more than to see women’s rights taken away and Lara Santiago presented what would happen in detail. The fact that Sophie got the man she always wanted was good fortune, but life did not work out so well for her
sister. I’m dying to read [Hannah's] story, but I was more than satisfied with The Wives Tales 2:
The Executive’s Wife. Sophie and Matt were dynamic characters that kept me turning the pages. I wanted to see more of them and the love they shared. Their sex life was stimulating and well earned. Matt’s father was obnoxious as well as determined. The man just would not give up on his dream for his son. It was more like an obsession. I had to give him credit for his gumption. Moreover, he made the story more interesting. After reading
The Executive’s Wife, I am greedy for more. While I wait for the next installment, I plan to read
the first Wives Tale [The Miner's Wife]."

4.5 Kisses: "Lara Santiago is a very
talented author and the men in her books
are absolutely to die for. Matt is honest,
straightforward, sexy, protective and a
loving alpha male that no woman could
resist (or would want to). He doesn't hide
from his feelings which is very refreshing
and even shows his vulnerability to the
woman he loves. Sophie is funny, kind, and
a wonderful mate for Matthew. The heady
combination of these two characters makes
the intensely erotic love scenes even
hotter. I recommend reading The
Executive's Wife and look forward
reading more pieces written by Lara

[The Wives Tales 3]
5 Stars/Hot: "The Lawman’s Wife,
book three of The Wives Tales, was well
worth the wait. Ms. Santiago knows how to
capture her readers and keep them
entertained until the very last word and
demanding more. Grace’s character suffered
a horrible sexual encounter when she was a
teenager that left her emotional scared by
sex. I enjoyed the way Grace was able to
overcome the challenges that she had and
was able to be a wonderful mother. There
were times when Grace appeared to be
naïve, but as I continued to read I
noticed that she was doing everything to
protect her child from harm -even
appearing to be meek to the man she
thought was her husband of convenience,
Danny Cox. Jon was also a strong character
overcoming his genetic enhancement
received as a teenager, instead of turning
into a sexual vampire he focused on
keeping his sexual needs at bay with the
help of medication. The sexual chemistry
between Grace and Jon was sizzling from
the moment they met in the elevator. Jon
was aware of Grace’s sexual history and
didn’t want to alarm her with his desire,
but [imagine] his surprise when Grace
turned into the sexual aggressor in their
relationship. Just Smoking!!!! The action
in the book was on point and well written.
Nothing appeared to be out of place with
this story. Bravo Ms. Santiago, for
another job well done!"
Blue, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
5 Kisses: "Jon is a wonderful man,
with a kind and caring heart. It doesn’t
hurt that he’s also drop-dead gorgeous and
sexy to boot! The manner in which he cares
for Grace and Emma is sweet and will fill
your heart with emotion. Grace has been
through so much and her unwavering
commitment to her daughter is beautiful
while her own search for peace will pull
at your heartstrings. The chemistry
between Jon and Grace is undeniable and
their love scenes are scorching. This
latest installment of The Wives Tales is
definitely the most intense and adds a
good balance to the series. I definitely
recommend reading The Lawman’s Wife
and feel that the entire The Wives Tales
series should be on everyone’s must-read
Two Lips Reviews
Stars: 2006 Reviewers' Choice Award
Nominee: "As the third book in the
Wives Tales, The Lawman's Wife
definitely delivers. Ms. Santiago paints a
picture of oppression and desperation for
Grace and other women. Even with her
painful past, Grace manages to be a sweet
woman and wonderful mother and when
Jonathan rescues her – both times – he is
the only man who has ever showed her any
gentleness. In addition, he's the only man
to ever excite her. Jonathan believes he's
only rescuing Grace because of sympathy
but in fact, his feelings run much deeper.
Their struggle to beat the clock to become
man and wife, build a relationship and try
to keep their little family together
despite a sexual predator makes for one
fantastic finish to this trilogy. This
fast paced story is one that will draw you
in and have you wishing for more."
