Praise for Jack & Dora Do L.A.:

"The story is beautifully structured so that it sucks readers into and through it. The characters are vivid. The theme is timely: our society needs shots of eroticism to keep us human, and this novel is a terrific shot of eroticism. It gives the reader a deeper insight into the Movieland culture, the obsession with glamour and ostentation. And, personally, I really liked the mix of gritty realism and the erotic wonderland in which the characters find themselves. All in all, I believe it's a very fine novel."

- Robert Gover, bestselling author of the novel $100 Misunderstanding, praised by NY Times, the Atlantic, Gore Vidal, Henry Miller, Joseph Heller and more

"Robert Szeles has captured part of the essential magic of L.A., a rare treat in a time when the city is merely a static backdrop for most authors. There's a touch of Raymond Chandler's deadly playfulness in his treatment of the fantasy landscape of the city, and his use of sexuality for both tension and healing is refreshing and quite unlike anything else I've read."

- Ryan Harvey, Winner of the 2011 Writers of the Future Award and Black Gate Author

"Jack and Dora are 21st century L.A.'s equivalent to Nick and Nora Charles (except they're involved in seduction, not detection). Take the witty repartee and charm of Nick and Nora, add a little more sex (okay, a lot more sex), a little less alcohol, some old world magic, and a lot of hip action (literally)."

- Rachel Olivier, editor, and author of The G.O.D. Factor

"The Jack & Dora stories flow very nicely and contain unique and interesting conversations. And, they'll be sure to heat you up on a cold rainy day."

- Gil Roscoe, author of Company of Thieves

"Jack and Dora are witty and openly adventurous characters whose passion for each other makes these enjoyable stories even more charming. The scenarios they somehow get themselves into are funny and alluring. A great read if you're into erotic stories with a hint of romance."

- Christina E. Rundle, Author
