About this author
Tara Chevrestt is a deaf woman, former aviation mechanic, writer, and an editor. She is most passionate about planes, motorcycles, dogs, and above all, reading. That led to her love of writing. Between her writing and her editing, which allows her to be home with her little canine kids, she believes she has the greatest job in the world. She is very happily married.
Tara also writes as Sonia Hightower. Sonia writes the racy stuff and argues that she was here first. She just wasn’t allowed to be unleashed until the last year.
They both agree, however, that strong is sexy, and they don’t write the average, simpering damsel. They write about women who see what they want and obtain it.
While Tara and Sonia continue to fight over the laptop and debate who writes the next book, you can find buy links, blurbs, and other fun bits on their website:… or their Facebook page:….

This is exactly what you need!

It’s Valentine’s Day and when Ariel receives a package of incense in the mail from her Pagan friend and mentor, she isn’t sure what to make of the enclosed note. Sure, she has some issues, but who doesn’t?

When the smoke releases its magic, Ariel gets an evening of surprise humor and romance, and it is indeed exactly what she needs.


Mating Instinct is an anecdote, which tells the story of Ariel, a wife and mother to several canine children. Ariel is basically content with her life, although she feels as if the spark is dimming between herself and husband Hugh. She discusses this issue with best buddy and confidant Laura, who informs her that she has “just the thing she needs”. So soon Ariel receives a package that has yummy smelling candles, a little confused but trusting in her friend who has not steered her wrong. Ariel lights them up and from this point chaos erupts that results in a hilarious and satisfying read!

Mating Instinct was a fast paced read that grabbed my attention at the beginning mainly because, it was downright funny! Ariel, the main character is extremely humorous when discussing her take on life, and the author does a superb job in translating Ariel’s quirks as endearing. The book flowed smoothing, and swiftly, although it was paced perfectly that if I wanted to stop and come back, I could easily immerse myself into the story again; but it was the type of read that caused a reader to not want to stop, to read as quick as possible to see what waits on the next page. I completed in one sitting, once I really got going!

Author Tara Chevrestt has a fun style of writing, the book caused me to laugh out loud at various moments when the beloved pooches became a little too happy when smelling the alluring candles. The story was easy to follow, well written and a perfect treat for Valentines….I am so happy I grabbed a copy…

I recommend Mating Instinct for 18+ audience, due to some mature themes, but this is a fun, spunky book that I label a must read!
