Thanks for stopping by to check out my site and my books. The books are getting great critical reviews so far. Here are a few from Amazon about Book 1: Deja vu. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter to learn about giveaway contests and my newest projects. I’m happy you’re here.

Deja Vu” is a sexy romance (bordering occasionally on erotica) novel at heart, but it is so, so much more. I was genuinely impressed with the level of intelligence, historical research, and complexity Ms. Janowsky brought to a genre that can be full of predictable cliché storytelling. It overall felt fresh and unique. I appreciated the fact that even with the time/place changes, this wasn’t a ‘time-travel’ novel and it always kept its sense of focus. Because of Daniel’s unique situation and backstory, we are able to revisit the past in a way that is authentic and organic. Ms. Janowsky did a remarkable job in capturing the tone and nuances of the different time/stages. Ms. Janowsky’s writing is lovely, descriptive and atmospheric… This novel fits nicely within a few different genres (as mentioned) yet at the same time defies the normal confines, which is refreshing…Once it gets going, it’s hard to put down. Inventive, passionate, and creative. I thought the ending was sweet (sexy) – it does wrap up and not with some crazy cliffhanger (which I certainly appreciate) but does leave the door open for more to follow with Nina, Daniel, and the others. Can’t wait!–Independent Book Review

Nazi horrors, superpowered people, mythical creatures, graphic assault scenes, Sumerian mythology, time-travel, eroticism, and sexual intimacy are incorporated into this well-researched novel. Janowsky has done a fantastic job of blending elements from different genres into a clever and unique story that will stay with readers long after they are done reading. –Bestsellers World

Janowsky skillfully reveals the duo’s intricately complex attraction to each other, allowing their romance to develop with sensuality. Yearning and tender love dominate the story, turning the book into a melancholy, haunting read. –The Prairies Book Review

Romance and mystery fuse in this supernatural thriller [that] touches on classic themes in multiple genres. [T]here are flashes of brilliance in the writing. Janowsky pays attention to small details, which are so important to a romance…It is the beauty in the prose that carries the book, even with a riveting story and a unique take on the superhero genre. –Self Publishing Review

***

It is one of those stories you just simply cannot put down because you are always searching for the next step, the next move in the relationship. The erotic writing in the book is a very small part, but an extremely powerful part. I felt the author handled these scenes with such tenderness and care that it was an absolute pleasure to read. If you love good science fiction or fantasy with plenty of twists and turns, or if you just love a ripping good adventure yarn with plenty of romance, you will love this book. I did and I can highly recommend it.” –5 Stars, Reader’s Favorite Reviewer

I enjoyed the fact that the heroes are fallible, they are not only imperfect and flawed, but they also don’t claim victory at every turn. They are human, mostly, and are presented as such. The plot is mainly focused on the building relationship between Daniel and Nina but is also filled with action and exploration. History is revealed and secrets uncovered in this character-driven plot. Romance, uncertainty, mystery, and intrigue will keep you delving further, trying to uncover the truth and its importance. –4 Stars, Reader’s Favorite Reviewer
