Reviewed by: D.Morris – Editor
For an unpublished manuscript I am very surprised that this has not been officially released.
The descriptive wordings and the connection with the characters feels so real your mind is completely lost and taken to a whole new world.
The storyline keeps the reader on edge and never has a moment to which a
reader will put the manuscript down. This has to be one of the most
beautiful pieces of work I have come across in my career as an editor.
My only advice would be as this is a true masterpiece of professional,
emotional and exquisite work this will need to be marketed with the right channels in order to gain a fan base and success. I would strongly advise that all your future projects are as descriptive and in depth as
this particular manuscript has been.
The Author has not only exceeded her own expectations but she has the eye for each detail that some upcoming authors will easily forget, a true masterpiece here and one that I shall personally be adding to my collection

Thirty-four year old Silka Fontein returns to her hometown after 15 years and reunites with her childhood friend, Taber Blake. Instant attraction immediately rises but both of them have secrets that are literally catching up to them. Determined to put an end to the imminent dangers, Silka and Taber team up and set out on a thrilling adventure.I loved the sophisticated-looking cover art and the subtle title; I really didn’t know what to expect of this novel when I began my reading. Both main characters, Silka Fointein and Taber Blake, are well-conceived protagonists, memorable and dynamic with sharp dialogues. As a fellow female, I admired Silka’s intelligence as well as her sense of vulnerability. Besides adventure, the story had the right amount of touch of thriller and romance as well. The action scenes are exceptionally well-portrayed and exciting; it is obvious that this particular element of the story was well-researched. From start to finish, it was a fun, fast-moving ride. On the other hand, the writing style is quite simple and does give out glimpses of the author’s raw attempt of a first book here and there. Even so, the great story line and the detailed descriptions of the surroundings, buildings and characters more than make up for this small flaw. The Author is certainly on the right track with “Capital D” to build her own bright future in the writing industry. Thrill seeking readers definitely should give this novel a go.Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers’ Favorite
NAT’S BOOK NOOK:
Rated it 5 of 5 stars
I have been dying to tell you about the only book I have read a thousand times and will read a thousand times more!!! Capital D is mentally stimulating, beautifully and intelligently written, challenging, and realistic, but fun read. It’s packed with everything you want in a book.
It boasts a cast of movie proportions with the strong, gorgeous male lead that comes to the rescue of the strong, confident female lead who is every man’s dream!
Silka returns after she disappeared 15 years ago. Just as she gets to grips with her sudden attraction for her hunky childhood friend, there is an attempted kidnapping. She is unwilling to accept Taber’s help and is determined to find out who is after her and why, all on her own. So starts a globe trotting adventure from one country to another in search of the truth. She is unexpectedly joined by Taber and later they are joined by his gorgeous friends. As the cast grows, the plot thickens and the real danger begins. Secrets are exposed and lives turned upside down. Just when things seem to go from bad to worse, another twist is added.
Apart from a range of characters to swoon over, there is also the hated ex-girlfriend, the super cool boss, and a woman who is a very disturbing replica of my mother-in-law!! (dude, seriously?) Throw in a healthy dose of goofy friends that are walking clichés and some multi-national bad guys and you have a timeless book for the whole world.
If you don’t like something about this book, you are not intelligent enough for it, and should stick to picture books. (Just saying) Only impotent grouches that are void of emotion, have no sense of humor, and who suck the life out of everyone and everything will not like this book. There is something for everyone in it and it comes in a PG version too. There is action, comedy, drama, romance, erotica, mystery, suspense and adventure.
Every time I read the book I discovered something new! I have absolutely no doubt that very soon I will give this book a Guild Review with the highest rating ever attained because IT IS THAT GOOD!
I give this 5 GALAXIES, because 5 stars just don’t do it justice.

From the book title I had no idea what to expect. The Author’s excellent slow burn start sets up a non-stop pile-driver guns-blazing high tech thriller that grabbed me by the scruff of the neck and dropped
me off at the last page, thankfully in one piece and still breathing.
This slick tale of two friends reuniting after 15 years apart – the sexy Silka and the handsome muscle-bound Taber – leaves me in no doubt that this author has found a niche for her amazing talents.
Move over Lustbader and make room for Johnstone the new kid on the spy
block. If you like spies, sighs and naked thighs – and there’s plenty of
naked thighs I might add – then this book is right up your street.
I was also impressed by the Author’s use of the movie and glamour world to describe the action and thoughts and there was no doubt that this book had been well researched from infamous gangs, terror groups, weaponry, technobabble and all the various spy networks competing out there.
particularly liked the Jagger/Faithful moment. I will not divulge on
the story as it is a secret until the book has been opened.
So what are you waiting for, download this FIVE STAR globe-trotting sexy spy thriller and discover what Capital D really means.
The book is not (thank god) not a typical romance/adult book, because
it’s really refreshing to read a adult book which a mixed with drama and
action. And the lovestory is realistic, I can relate to and not
overdramatic and sweet.
The book is very hard to put down and very unpredictable and I LOVE not knowing what is coming next.
It’s very unbelievable that this book Capital D is a first novel and I
can’t wait to read more books from this amazing author.
I really hope this book is the beginning of a series or trilogy
I was not sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised by how good this books was.
There are two main characters Silva and Tabor lost touch for 15 years and then again found each. In the finding of each other, they take you on an amazing rollercoaster of emotions. You will be kept gripped to your seat while reading all the twists and turns in this book, you will gasp and say OMG a lot but it will be so worth it.
This book is action packed and yes it is a thriller just so you are aware. I knew when I read the synopsis that this would be a book I could enjoy and I was not wrong.
I found I was lulled into a false sense of security, thinking at the beginning that this would be a great romantic sexy novel but I was so wrong, there is so much more to read here. Yes there is a romance, well erotic moment but I felt they did not over play the content of this story.
The great thing here is that Ash Stone has brought out two versions, an Adult Version and a PG Version. Even in the PG version you get a sense of the connection between these two characters.
All in all this is full of drama, action and suspense. The good thing I felt though was that the love story was real and that made the difference to some of the books out there that I have read.
Ash Stone has a great book here on her hands and for a new author to write something as good as this, I feel that we will hear more from Ash Stone.
I would recommend this book to you all.
Rated it 5 of 5 stars
sure as God made little green apples” I can not wait to read more of
Silka and Taber, who after fifteen years apart are reunited again.
the very beginning of the story line, I was engrossed with the mansions
that were described in great detail, to the fast paced and non stop
thrills all along the way. Silka and Tay try to fight their feelings for
each other which keeps the tension high.
Some might prefer the PG version, (there is one) because the sex scenes are very spicy. Capital D is a thriller, action adventure and romance book all in one.
author created people I found myself relating to. Ones I could suffer
with, and then rejoice in their happiness. With these two sexy
characters, women will want to be Silka and men will want to be Tay.
5 STARS and I seriously hope there’s more to come.
Rated it 5 of 5 stars
“Capital D” by Ash Stone is a fast paced and gripping action packed thriller about two beautiful people of the opposite sex who have not seen each other since their high school days. Now they are hugely attracted to each other and while Silka and Taber try to get closer to each other a sudden kidnapping attempts leads them into the middle of a complex web of crime.
What appeared at first a romantic chick lit novel about Silka and her troubled relationship with her mother turned quickly and surprisingly into a fascinating spy thriller with great action and suspense.
I read the PG version so the erotic contents of the romance were played down, but the chemistry between the two main characters is still very believable and one of the strong points of this novel.
The story about rich and beautiful people, daring and powerful gangsters and heroes, this is an explosive and rewarding read.
Rated it 5 of 5 stars
“Nothing like a high tech thriller to brighten your day. Ash Stone leads us through a tale of two old friends who reunite after 15 years. Needless to say, there is some heat mixed into this story. 🙂 Silka and Taber are simply wonderful. So, if you like spies and heat and well, an awesome thriller,
check this one out.”

“ONE KICK-ASS READ!!! I was given this book to read by Ash Stone before anyone read it!! By the second page, I knew I was hooked!! 2 people who lost touch and after 15 years reunite for one helluva THRILLING RIDE!!! Silva and Tabor are characters you just want to know!! And I held my breath thru most of this book!! From beginning to end, the plot thickens, twists and turns you can’t imagine and the huge gripping finale!!! AMAZING, BRILLIANT and HEART POUNDING!!! To see a bright new author on the scene with promises of more to come will bring me to here and tell you all this is A MUST READ!!! It wouldn’t surprise me to see this hitting the BIG SCREEN!! I’ve read my copy so many times the pages are frayed & finally bought my Kindle copy!! I love suspense and Michael Connelly, James Patterson, John Grisham…MOVE OVER!!! You’ve been replaced!!! Ash Stone is here to stay and can’t wait to read what’s next!!”

******** REVIEWED ON BEHALF OF GIVE ME BOOKS ********
This book was D*mn good with a Capital D. I really enjoyed reading it! It was an intriguing, suspenseful, and sexy ride. There are twists and turns, which will leave you guessing and gasping. A lot happens in Capital D, but it’s tastefully written, the drama isn’t over the top, and there’s never a dull moment.
Taber Blake is Delicious with a Capital D. He’s sweet, caring, and loving. He’s strong, protective, and powerful. He will have you swooning, especially when he works his mojo. You will never question his devotion to Silka, even when their relationship hits a few snags. He’s just an all-around good guy.
Silka Fontein is a Delightful heroine with a Capital D. She’s strong, confident, and determined. I loved her wit and her ability to joke during the bad situations. She can be extremely stubborn, and she drives Taber crazy sometimes, so she is totally awesome!!!
This is a great book and it has everything: romance, mystery, suspense, awesome characters, and so much more. I do have to say there was a part of me that couldn’t connect to the story and felt that some parts seemed a little impersonal – more matter-of-fact – but I didn’t feel that way most of the time. Besides that, I really loved it!
I loved the humor, the characters, and especially the passion. Let’s just say I will probably never look at another chocolate bar in quite the same way… Curious? I guess you’re just going to have to read the book!
Capital D does end with a HEA and while it’s not a cliffhanger ending, it does let the reader know the there’s more to come. I know I Definitely with a Capital D cannot wait to read the rest of the series!!!
What a good combination of action and romance. Right from the start I got a Mr. And Mrs. Smith vibe from this book and then I come across the line, “The undercurrent in the room reached Mr. And Mrs. Smith proportions.” I love me some Brad Pitt so this was a fun read!
Silka and Taber have known each other since their youth and because of that, their newfound love for each other feels real. I loved their intimate moments and anticipation. There were plenty of twists and turns and some unanswered questions that will hopefully be answered in book two!
This book made me feel just about every emotion. I loved the one-liners and the sarcastic ‘hero’ team she compiled was perfect. I couldn’t always keep up with the flow of the story, yet I loved the idea of it. It was Daring with a Capital D. ~ Krissy, 3 Dangerous stars.
I rate this book a Capital G – for Great. Stone really knows how to throw a punch that will knock your socks off. The story has entertainment for everyone; intriguing suspense, steamy romance, raw comedy, real drama, with action galore. I thought peanut butter went good with chocolate, but the heroine Silka comes up with a much better mix. You’ll have to read the story to see what I am talking about. I vision a movie in the making. I rate it four plus stars out of five for sure. Thomas Hay (The Comeback Kid).
