It was a pleasant surprise to see a review from a reader of the book on Amazon.com. The book was given five stars!
According to T. Daniels “charming2i”:
this is a different spin on a vampire love story but i loved it and i hope Michelle Downes writes the second story to this wonderful romance. If you are looking for a I/R romance with a black woman go no further read this one you will love it.
Working hard to get the next book, Melody and the Master out by early next year.
The press releases vary, but the content is similar. Princess and the Emperor by Mechelle Downes reached #79 on the Time Travel on the Best Seller Lists by Amazon.com. I only wish I did a screen shot of it.

I am releasing what will be the first of many publications. The book is called Princess and the Emperor. It is a love story, written with a black woman as the love interest. It is science fiction, but I guarantee that it wont be wonky. I always enjoy science fiction, and any story that has this as a romance story, I enjoy reading.
The big publishers usually have a process of releasing hardcover, softcover, followed by ebooks. In this case, I will release ebooks and then softcovers. Hardcovers are a prestigious money maker for big publishers, and I understand their desire to put out these books. They are also quite expensive to make and that results in high priced books. Retailers discount these books, but that doesn’t change for the majority of hardcovers like school textbooks.
The main character of Princess and the Emperor is cheerful, lovely and a vibrant spirit. I hope to publish more stories with characters like her.
