Raving Fan Reviews

Started this book and finished it all in the same day! I was sucked in from page one very impressed by how deep the love between Kat and Tim was conveyed through out the story. A beautiful erotic love story with suspense and vengence intertwined. Now I can not wait to read book 2. The wait will be torture! Pun intended.

I am a true fan of Lilith's and have watched this story develop into a truly erotic experience for the reader. I enjoyed reading this book and feel the characters are very likable and believable. The erotic scenes were just right and her descriptions allow the reader to imagine the delicious encounters very easily. I can hardly wait for additional works by this author and anyone looking for a good read in this genre should purchase this book.

I absolutely loved this book. The book was well-written & I loved the twists and turns that it took! The characters are very interesting & you can feel something for each of them. I can’t wait to read the next book to find out what happens!!! I would highly recommend this book to everyone!!

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This is a good read about a woman’s journey into the dom/submissive lifestyle. I love the way the characters are developed as well as the explanation of how she turned to this world. I love how the writer develops the relationship and allows them to teach and reach each other. Nicely done. I can’t wait for the next book in the series and you won’t either.

I did the unthinkable by reading the Scorpio saga out of order, but what can you do when only one volume is presented for review? Scorpio Rising does stand alone, but it would have been easier if I’d had the benefit of knowing who all the characters were ahead of time, along with their relationships, which are well established by volume three. Nevertheless, it’s a fast ride, with lots of sex and mystery, interesting surroundings, excellent word pictures, and very good writing. Connor and Kat haven’t been together very long, but are already in a loving, committed BDSM relationship. When Kat ends up in hospital with amnesia, Connor moves heaven and earth to be with her, as well as to find out who would blow up Kat’s car to kill her.

As Kat recovers, she has to re-learn her relationship with Connor, but she at least realizes she loves him and he will always keep her safe. When his ex returns to the scene, putting Kat in danger, Connor has to break Kat’s heart to keep her safe. But what is a D/s coupling if there is no trust? Kat is convinced Connor no longer wants her so she returns home to Canada.

I liked these two, hated the ex, and I guess that’s exactly what’s supposed to happen. I’d advise you to get all three of the Scorpio books and read them together in order. It’s going to be better that way!

When I returned to writing, an absolutely fabulous writer named Lilith Darville found me on twitter .... She is without a doubt a great erotica/romance writer of the 21st Century

Even better than number 1!   SPOILER ALERT. After reading the first book, I was very keen to start on the 2nd, to see where Meredith and Connors relationship would go. Boy what a ride! I was surprised by having Katherine introduced and wasn't sure how it would work as I was so engrossed with Meredith from book 1, but this one was even better! Loved the characters, the development of Katherine and Connor was brilliantly done and I so hoped for them to have their HEA, and Lilith didn't disappoint! I have to say kudos on Cecile character, what a nasty piece of work she is, brilliantly done! Can't wait for book 3!...hope Tim and Brian both find their HEA?!

This is the first of Lilith Darville's books I've read, but I will read more. Scorpio Begins is an erotic romance novel with plenty of juicy sex and lots of romance. The opening is sudden, with Connor and Meredith coming together (pun intended) for the first time in 3 or 4 years. Meredith's flirtation with Brett leads to jealousy and confusion, especially when the BDSM scene plays out. The damsel must be rescued (it is a romance novel after all) and Connor comes through in the end. I enjoyed the book and can''t wait to read the rest of the series.

This book is sexy as hell. The main characters are interesting and complicated. The chemistry between them undeniable. The villains were truly terrible. I like how the author made Katherine a very strong woman not a doormat, but like to surrender sexually. Usually when a writer writes about a woman who is a submissive she is wimpy and does anything to get the guy to love her. Katherine is NOTHING like that and I love that! She knows what she wants and she goes for it. Never make Conner mad! I would definitely read the next book!
- Maria11, Scorpio Rising

I am in love with Connor, need I say more? I really wish I’d read Scorpio Awakens before reading this little gem, but never one to follow instructions and loving the blurb, I dove right in. Ms. Lilith’s writing is superb; she definitely knows how to turn a phrase. I felt Connor’s fear and frustration as he struggled with getting his head around Kat’s accident and her recovery. Scorpio Rising has some of the best dialogue I’ve ever read, and what Kat and Connor have makes for one great love story. My only complaint is that is it a novella—give us more!

I can’t wait to read more from the awesome Ms. Lilith. I love how she makes sex a loving, nurturing, and oh so exciting event. The sex is explicit and there is mild BDSM, which may not be for everyone’s taste.

It's not often that a book keeps me guessing and surprising me, but this book sure did. I loved how this book continued the story but also used elements from the first book. I truly hope the author continues with their story. I would love to read more about their journey.
- Jodie Logoglu, Scorpio Rising

Scorpio Rising is absolutely the best and most exciting erotic romances I've read. I love that the book is written from Connor's perspective, and there is such great chemistry between Connor and Kat. It was wonderful to watch Connor change and grow as he fell in love with Kat all over again. It's a great romance, and the sex was scorching hot.

I'm not usually a fan of reading BDSM, but the way Lilith writes it makes it a pleasure to read. I loved how the emotions poured out of the characters, especially Connor; loved that we could get inside his head like that! I heartily recommended this read for those looking for something sensual yet deeper. Lilith Darville writes deep, emotional stories with characters we can relate to. I can't wait for her next book.
- Victoria Marshall

I will try to give the best review without given to much away.
I loved how the author continued the story in the second installment, while adding new characters and emotions to the mix.
This book starts around 20 years after the first book. It shows how the first book changed Connor to the person he was in this book.
I thought it was great that he had to learn how to understand his own feels.
I did feel that Katherine didn't share as much as Connor did when it came to the reasons to their arrangement.
The one thing I didn't like was Tim's character, it didn't make to much sense at times.
But all in all it was still a great read.
- Jodie T Logoglu, Scorpio Awakens

I loved this book from the first page. I will try to give the best review without any spoilers.
The author did amazing building the an intense story that continued to grow through out the story. I loved how the author showed many different sides of the main characters and allowed there true sides to be shown.
I couldn't wait to read the next installment in this series.
You will not regret reading this!!!
- Jodie T Logoglu, Scorpio Begins

Scorpio Rising is the latest installment of Lilith Darville's smart and sexy saga where one can't turn the pages fast enough. Snappy dialogue, thoroughly developed characters and sophisticated plot lines made for an engrossing read. I certainly hope there is a book #4 in the Scorpio Rising Saga.
- C. Lauren

I really enjoyed reading this book, there was fantastic chemistry between Connor and Meredith, and I really loved that Connor was younger and that it was from his perspective, really liked that!

I'm not usually a big fan of BDSM books, but Lilith has certainly converted me! I think this is because the 2 characters really loved each other, and the emotions poured out of them both, especially Connor, loved that you could get inside his head like that!!

And of course not forgetting the sex scenes! They were brilliantly written and definitely scorching, which is exactly what I want to read lol!

Can't wait to read the next in the series!

In this erotic second book in the Scorpio Saga, we rejoin gazillionaire Connor McClane in his sexploration of BDSM.

Twenty years ago, Connor McClane Had the world by its oysters. Then one sunny day, the woman he was meant to spend his life with died, and any light inside Connor died along with her. He's spent the years since becoming the powerful media mogul behind Magnum International, needing nobody, allowing nobody to get close enough to care about. Until Kat.

Katherine King spent one amazing night with Connor in college, but her Victorian upbringing stopped her from pursuing the naughty kind of things he wanted from her. When she sees him again at work, those memories rush back in full force and she's helpless to resist. Connor doesn't hesitate to introduce Kat into his kinky BDSM world, and she quickly discovers what's been missing in her own world. But with her ex-boyfriend Tim returning and wanting to rekindle their relationship (with Connor's help…awkward!), and Connor's crazy business associate Cecile wreaking havoc, Connor and Kat will have to stand united if they're going to make it through this unscathed.

SCORPIO AWAKENS is the second book in the Scorpio Saga featuring the über wealthy Connor McClane and his adventures in the world of BDSM. I wondered where the story would go after Connor and Meredith's HEA in the first book, so I was rather surprised by her abrupt departure in this book. BUT I really liked this book much more than the first one. The writing style flowed a lot better, the combined POV from Connor and Kat (and occasionally Tim and Cecile) kept the storyline from becoming dull and the light feeling of suspense throughout kept me intrigued.

I still am not in love with Connor; his hot and cold attitude and abrupt rudeness did nothing for me. However I enjoyed Kat immensely. She was a very strong female character, one who didn't cave to her submissiveness anywhere other than in the bedroom.

So the BDSM scenes…for a Dom who owns several sex clubs and has been in the lifestyle for twenty years and embraced everything about it, the scenes were surprisingly mild. There was light bondage and a bit of spanking, but most of the play centered around power plays, sex with others, voyeurism and orgasm denial. The way that Connor treated Kat after sex bothered me, especially since he's trying to get Kat to ditch her ex for him. His stunted personality didn't win him any points with this reader. Even so, I'm looking forward to the culmination of this series with the final book, Scorpio Rising.

Bottom Line: Decent read and good follow up to Scorpio Begins. Props to Ms. Darville for mentioning Baco Noir wine, a delicacy everyone tried to convince me was a figment of my imagination.
- Delta, The Romance Reviews

A very enjoyable read i was sucked in straight away, i loved the main characters especially Tim. I found in a way this read was equally about how Tim is exploring his sexual fantasies, finding out things he never knew he would be interested in, let alone be aroused by, just as much as Katherine is at having hers fulfilled. The story is easy to read and the intimacy and love between Tim and Katherine is simply gorgeous, the diary sharing of their needs and thoughts to each other packs a punch. Connor is your stereotype, rich and gorgeous, slightly cold and all demanding, his past is why he is like this, until Katherine reappears in his life. I'm not sure how this threesome is going to span out but i for one can't wait to read more! It has a lot more going on but i don't want to spill all the good stuff. 😉

This is romantic and very sexy, arousing and heartfelt. One to read for sure!
- Bexxful

I always love to read a book that has a strong, beautiful and complex leading lady. I love that Kat wants to explore her sexuality, and doesn’t worry about bucking the norm to find what she’s looking for, both emotionally and physically. The sex between Kat and Connor is just that, sex. But when Kat and Tim hit the sheets…or floor..things get extremely hot! The complex relationship between the three of them adds an interesting twist to the story. Throw in a jealous wife and business rivals and you get a steamy romance with a bit suspense. I admit that I had a hard time getting into the first couple chapters but once Tim got thrown into the mix, the complexity of the story held me through until the end. I’m really looking forward to the next book in the series! I definitely recommend “Scorpio Awakens” for anyone wanting hot and steamy with a lot of romance.
- The Geekery Book Review

It’s just an amazing book! So much better than anything else I read in that kinda of genre before. It’s more than just some really hot sex scenes. It also tells a lovely story and I am so excited to start the second book, now!

- Katharina

The book is amazing and yes it is pretty hot 😉 But it also has a lovely story and I can't wait to read the next one.
Lilith is such a talent writer and I hope she gonna much much more books.
