The Author


British Crime Investigator & Crime Writer, Siobhan C Cunningham creates steamy psychological thrillers and kick-ass paranormal romance with a skilled mix of fuelled tension, dark humour, and pulsating sex scenes. Having worked in the very industries she writes about, her novels offer a fresh level of sincerity and authority, rare in fiction.

An ex-model, British born of Irish roots, she married a rock musician and has worked in the exciting worlds of music, film, sports celebrity management and as a Crime Investigator for the British Police (Wanted & Absconder Unit, Major Crime Team, Intelligence Analyst, Investigations Hub).

Abducted as a child, she survived; and every night for months afterward, she prayed to God, asking for a deal. This personal journey sparked the fuse behind the intriguing and riveting fictional world she portrays in The Fallen Angel Series. Twenty years later she crossed paths with a violent serial attacker who haunted the streets of London, the seed for The David Trilogy was sown, book one is The Penance List, and has been adapted to film screenplay.

She is the proud mother to contemporary Artist Scarlett Raven and is owned by three dogs.

My Review


Wow! What a read! Like previously mentioned, I was lucky to receive a copy of this book as part of a blogtour. As such, I didn’t research the book and delved into it blindly, only having the summary to go by and not completely knowing what the book was about.

And all I can say is what a fantastic find!

I was gripped from the very first chapter! It was dark, sexy, provocative, thrilling and oh so exciting! The characters were deep and brought a lot of great reading material to the book.

This story made ’50 Shades’ look like a tame children’s book. It was so raunchy and I loved every word of it and lapped it up enthusiastically. The pages turned quick and fast as I hurried to see how the story would end. I was not disappointed when i did finally get to the last page; instead I wanted more!

I was so pleased to find out that there is more to this book; and that the story isn’t over yet. The books in this trilogy have already been put into my TBR list.

There is a big part of me that understands why David is the way he is and I feel sorry for the person that is lost and who could have been, but damn he is a evil-dark-sexy-man. To say that he is ‘hot’ is an understatement. Yes he is troubled, yes he is angry and at times very scary, but there is something about the character that draws me in. The whole story got me hot under the collar more than once.


The author, S C Cunningham has a really good talent for writing and knows exactly how to engage her readers. There was a lot of great character interaction, especially between the 3 best friends, Helen, Josie and Tara. The lunchtime meet ups reminded me of some of the conversations I have had with my girlfriends over time and it was very relatable. More so the topics they discussed which would make most people blush. The script between these friends flowed naturally and it felt like we knew the characters more intimately because of how well they were written.

If you like a book with a bit of spunk, a story that leaves you gagging for more and a ‘villain’ who is drop-dead-evil-sex-on-legs then read this! It is raunchy in all the best ways; it is filthy and crude but it is all the more enjoyable because of it. But take the debauchery and raunchy scenes out of it, then there is still a fantastic dramatic, thrilling story hidden in the pages. This book is an amazing read with a host of likeable characters.

This was a very enjoyable read. I had completed the story within a few days and was very pleased with the fact that there is another couple of books in the series. And I look forward to seeing how the rest of the series pans out.

Please, if you haven’t already, check out the author, S C Cunningham and her work!

Fantastic Read! Fantastic Writing!
