“THE PRINCE is truly just a taste of what’s to come from Sylvain Reynard.” ~ Under the Covers

Kickstarting a brand new series called the Florentine, Sylvain Reynard certainly changed things up so dramatically that I was confused there for a moment. Though Gabriel and Julianne make an appearance, this isn’t an Contemporary Romance anymore. It isn’t until the middle of the novella that I realized that something wasn’t quite fitting the realistic mold anymore.

The narrator we know is called The Prince, but that’s all we really know about him. If you thought Gabriel was an enigma, you’ll definitely find The Prince to be more mysterious than the Professor. True to Reynard’s writing, he draws inspiration from what’s around him and there’s an abundance of references to classical pieces of real life. Beautiful and transcendent, Reynard really plays this up in the writing. More eloquent, more formal, the writing almost has a Historical Romance feel to it and yet there’s this assassin story line that also adds in the suspense. THE PRINCE is truly just a taste of what’s to come from Sylvain Reynard.

About Sylvain Reynard

I'm interested in the way literature can help us explore aspects of the human condition - particularly suffering, sex, love, faith, and redemption. My favourite stories are those in which a character takes a journey, either a physical journey to a new and exciting place, or a personal journey in which he or she learns something about himself/herself.

I'm also interested in how aesthetic elements such as art, architecture, and music can be used to tell a story or to illuminate the traits of a particular character. In my writing, I combine all of these elements with the themes of redemption, forgiveness, and the transformative power of goodness.

I try to use my platform as an author to raise awareness about the following charities: Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation, WorldVision, Alex's Lemonade Stand, and Covenant House.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
