Praise for Stone Heart

"Susan K. Hamilton crafts a satisfying saga of two individuals who seek to overcome obstacles to redemption to form new relationships. Each arrives at more mature revelations about themselves and each other, which contributes an added sense of self-growth to the process. 

The result is a work of women's fiction that will attract a wide audience interested how love evolves, how hearts are protected, and what happens when the boundary between friends and lovers is breached. Readers seeking a solid example of contemporary women's fiction that tugs on the heartstrings by presenting a successful, career-minded young woman's reconsideration of her choices and life will find Stone Heart a winner."

D. Donovan, Sr. Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

"Stone Heart] is full of relatable characters that have hopes and dreams, along with a closet full of skeletons and bad decisions. These personalities are engaging because they’re us. 

Some readers may have a tough time with this read because it’s raw and open. The author paints a starkly beautiful picture of the decisions that lead these characters to the choices they make and the fallout from those actions. The novel takes the reader from the highs of fame, fortune, and passion to the lows of pain, loss, and deep regret. The author deftly navigates this minefield, keeping the reader engaged and reminding us that rarely is life made up of issues that are black or white/good or bad. Perfect and unequivocal answers are scarce, because life is more complicated than we want it to be. 

I recommend “Stone Heart” by Susan K. Hamilton to readers who appreciate realistic characters struggling with genuine issues, to fans of romance novels that are less about perfect heroes than about how messy life truly is, and to those who enjoy stories that touch all of the reader’s emotions."

Praise for The Devil Inside

"The Devil Inside is a sometimes funny, sometimes steamy fantasy novel in which a successful devil works to balance her love life with her work."

FOREWORD BOOK REVIEW (Clarion Rating 4 out of 5)

"Forget the cute little angel and devil on your shoulder. Instead, imagine the angel and devil lusting for one another with a flaming desire that dances off the page ... author Susan K. Hamilton crafts a full working organization of angels and devils and the roles they play in our lives in this unforgettable, otherworldly romance. With heavy themes regarding personal and professional sacrifice, good and evil, forgiveness and greed, The Devil Inside is a must read."


"This is an amusing, stylish read as Susan takes you through the ins and outs of God's corporate enterprise.

Compassionate devils and naughty angels? You bet! Eternal damnation? Of course! The Devil Inside is highly recommended for fun!"
