Recent Raves and Reviews:

A Bolt From the Blue (April 2017 ~ Lyrical Press/Kensington)

“A Bolt from the Blue is brilliantly woven from beginning to end, filled with compelling characters who light up the pages with humor and honesty. I loved every minute of it!” ~ Amazon review, 5 stars

“…combines a satisfying mix of sweet and sexy to the couples that she writes about, and she never fails to make me laugh and cry in the span of a single book. My chief complaint is typically: MORE!” ~ Amazon review

Love & Rockets (November 2016 ~ Lyrical Press/Kensington)

“A Maggie Wells hero has chinks in his armor, a source of vulnerability that makes him human (one of my favorite aspects of the author’s storytelling). Her heroines, on the other hand, wear pride and independence like a badge and struggle to admit when they need help.” ~ Epilogue Book Blog

Going Deep (September 2015  ~ Lyrical Shine/Kensington)

“Humor, wit, and heat are served up in abundance in Going Deep as these rivals get their second chance at love.” ~ KB Taylor, 5 star Amazon review

“Completely out of the box in the more contemporary and erotic reads I’ve had of late, Three Little Words by Maggie Wells is a little gem of a novella, bound to please many.” ~ Gaele, Amazon Top 100 Reviewer, 4 stars

” I like that it’s about an older couple something I can relate to rather than the usual younger characters that most books/novellas are about.” ~ Judy C, 5 star Amazon review

“Showing that age is truly just a number, this was fun and sexy and insanely good.” ~ mjlovestoread, 4 star Amazon review
