Find out what the CRITICS are saying about Keta Diablo ...

Snippets of Reviews for Holding On To Heaven:~ This is a wonderfully written story. It has a vast collection of characters that everyone can relate with, from the ones who like love stories to people who prefer the war-time stories. Its just another fine example of how Keta's stories can cover many generations of readers. Five Stars ~

~ When I picked this book and it was offered as erotic fiction I wasn't too sure what to expect, certainly a lot of sex and not too much else if I am honest. I could not have been more wrong! Yes there are scenes of passion (which some might find graphic) but there is so much more to this story. This is my first time reading this author and I will certainly be going back for more. I was entertained, kept on the edge of my seat and really enjoyed just about every aspect of this book. The only draw back for me was when it ended, I wanted it to keep going and I think that is just about the biggest compliment you can get for a story. 5/5 for me. ~

~ "Keta Diablo really knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what will befall the main characters. Lovers of historical fiction will love this one! I’m a big fan of the Civil War era and it’s nice to see this as the backdrop for this novel. I don’t think it’s written about as much as it should be in the historical romance world. Holding on to Heaven has it all -- adventure, desire, and the indelible spirit of human hope and perseverance. I enjoyed it and hope this might be the start of a series where we can see some of these characters yet again! An excellent read! A page turner. Bring on the sequel." PaperCut Reviews ~

Through the lives of these three people, Ms. Diablo spins a vivid account of how grueling and sometimes brutal the life of a Dog Soldier could be.

This is a historical romance sure to magically sweep you back in time. A must read!

E-Cata Romance – 4.5 Stars ~
~ An understanding of the culture of these wonderful people who fought to preserve their life style will be found in the pages of Where the Rain is Made. Keta Diablo takes us into the legends and lore of a people who lost so much more than lives those long ago days along the Platte River. Where the Rain is Made is a tale that is rich in history, emotions and love. Kudos to Ms. Diablo for penning such an impassioned story.~

~ Classical Romance Reviews – 4.5 Stars Diablo’s Where The Rain Is Made is a must-read for anyone interested in native history, as well as anyone looking for a nice, deep romance that never gets too heavy despite some intense moments of fighting for survival. I rarely enjoy time travels but this one came off as thoroughly believable and is on my recommended list. I will be looking for other books by this author.~
