Paranormal Romance With Spice

Chained in Desire FB Size

Chained in Desire is the forth book in the Enforcers and Coterie series, which has the momentum of a urban fantasy series but the fun and sizzle of a paranormal romance.

As a Mage Demon Enforcer, Victor Tremaine is one of the elite classes. Only a handful of mages have earned this distinction since demons are tricky buggers, especially those who have entered Earth illegally. Six months ago, he received an assignment — find and capture something that shouldn’t even exist: a human turned demon.

Imagine his surprise when she appears one day and attacks him.

Isabella Tuarez has been tuned into the emotions of others all her life. She’s only ever wanted to help, but that driving desire may prove to be her undoing. Escape from her captors should’ve been a happy time. Instead she found herself held by someone more ruthless. To survive, she must prove her usefulness.

She must kill an Enforcer.

Chained in Desire 1

 

EXCERPT

“Who are you?” she demanded, willing him to say anything but the words that would prove her theory. Taking on a Mage Enforcer was suicide.

Vic’s eyebrows furrowed, and he scratched at his stubbled chin. “You stalked me for over a week and then attacked me without even knowing my name? Should I be flattered?”

“I know your name, Vic,” she snarled, the knot in her stomach tightening with each passing second. Please don’t say it. Just be a mage who’s irritated the Overlord.

“Well that’s a start, although I prefer Victor. Vic is my street name.” He grinned and then bowed, somehow making it elegant instead of mocking. “I’m Victor Tremaine, Mage Demon Enforcer extraordinaire, second to none.”

Her world bottomed out with his words. Not just a Mage Enforcer, but one of the special ones. As Revenant had warned her, Victor hunted demons. Damn the Overlord to whatever hell he came from. She staggered back a step, ignoring the steadying hand he held out and the look of concern on his face.

She’d seen firsthand how swiftly his features mimicked emotion while he truly felt nothing. He wouldn’t fool her. Even now she sensed nothing from within him, an emptiness that scared her.

“I’m sorry,” she said, donning a meek and helpless expression while inching forward. “I didn’t want to hurt you, but I had no choice.”

The gap closed between them. She grabbed his arm and spun him face first into the nearest wall and winced at the resounding crack.

He laughed. The mage actually laughed.

“It’s not often a woman tries to harm me, at least, not so soon after meeting me.” He glanced at her and winked. “This might hurt my street cred, so let’s keep it between us, eh?”

Chained in Desire is available at most major retailers: books2read.com/u/b6QpOA

EPIC FANTASY SAGA CONTINUES….

WoE-BookTeaser1-700x457

 

The Matter of Manred Continues…

With the day of her arranged wedding fast approaching, will the Lady Eithne agree to marry King Eowain? What sinister forces have gathered to oppose the happy day? And what interest do the mysterious drymyn-priests and their dark, forgetful Gods have in such a mundane matter as love?
Since the day she was born, the Lady Eithne of Dolgallu has lived under a magical prohibition: she may not marry before the omens are deemed favorable.
Now, after a harrowing journey to the most sacred place in the Five Kingdoms, the mysterious priests and priestesses of the powerful Drymyn Order have pronounced the omens favorable, and her wedding to King Eowain of Droma has been arranged.
But Eithne has the right to accept—or reject—her suitor.
She did not set this geas upon herself, didn’t ask for the special attention of the Gods to her love-life. Yet the time for her decision has come.
Eowain has proven himself loyal, brave, kind—all the things any woman might ask from a man.
But there’s the way of it: “This is the man, you must marry him.” Is she not a free woman? Was she not guaranteed the right of choice?
Eithne is frustrated by the expectation that she will simply acquiesce to her fate, that she must accept that the Gods wove some secret pattern for her life and she can do nothing to stop it.
So how can she prove she has the freedom to choose if she doesn’t choose, “No”? How can she know for herself that her will is truly her own if she consents?

WoE-FullCoverTeaser-700x457

Here’s a closer look at The Wedding of Eithne

The plates of the cauldron had been hammered from within to push out the wyrd metal surface. From the facets of the boiling pot, mystic coelbreni runes and curvilinear pictographs stood out in the glow from the statue at the other end of the chamber.

The ancient image of Kârn, god of the forest, was on that cauldron. He wore roebuck antlers with the motif of a tree between them and sat with goat-legs crossed beneath him. In his right hand, he held a torc, and with his left gripped a horned serpent behind the head. To the left was a stag with antlers similar to those of the god. Dogs, cats, and cattle surrounded the scene. Some faced the god, others faced away. The antlers of the god reminded Eithne of the massive rack that hung over Eowain’s hearth in Dúnsciath. That seems so long ago and far away now. How strong and fierce and handsome he looked. And now… Tears welled into Eithne’s eyes, no matter the guards, the people. Helplessness and defeat overwhelmed her.

The brutes raised Eowain’s linen-wrapped body high in the air. The cauldron bubbled with herbs and mystic roots. On another of its plates was the bust of a torc-wearing woman, flanked by two six-spoked wheels and what seemed to be two elephants and two fierce, winged gryffins. Beneath the woman’s bust was the image of a terrible lion. The ancient chants of Corchen and the priestesses rose in a feverish spiral through the grotto.

Eithne shrieked a little as his linen-wrapped body sizzled into the scalding water. She had not thought it possible, for those short men to reduce his whole, bearish, war-like body, his whole life, into that cauldron. It seemed not nearly so vast as to contain the man she’d come to love.

The Wedding of Eithne releases in Kindle and Paperback on 28 March. Reserve your copy today

Illusional Reality
Fantasy romance suitable for new adult and young adults.

Image may contain: 1 person, text and close-up
*****

This was very different then my average paranormal read, but that is why I love it. The dialogue is incredibly proper and I enjoyed the consistance of it. It is well written tale and I believe it is of good quality clean YA read and rate this book 5 stars.

 *****

I absolutely loved reading this book. It is unlike any other i have ever read and i was instantly drawn into the world of this book from the very start. The main character Becky gets stalked, injured and then finds herself in another reality and is known by the people in this new reality as a woman named Thya. She is not just any woman to these people. To them she is their queen and their savior and so Becky/Thya finds herself battling in a war using newly acquired powers that she never knew she possessed to bring this new world called Tsinia peace and harmony and so she battles against Kovon a Senx warlord. She doesn’t really want to be a part of Tsinia but finds herself making sacrifices and becomes attached to the people of this world and wants to do right by them and ultimately finds herself falling in love with Alkazar. This love is forbidden as he belongs to someone else but their love is meant to be. I absolutely loved these two characters and was rooting for them and their forbidden love from the start. I don’t want to spoil anything but the ending of the story is amazing. I would highly recommend that people read this book as its definitely a work of great masterpiece and you will not be disappointed.

 

From the very first paragraph I was totally into this book. We meet Becky, whose life is in danger and then she is whisked away to another world where her name is Princess Thya. We learn about a whole new world, about magical powers, Thya’s family history…oh and there is romance too. Looking forward to where the author will take us with the next book in this series.

 *****

I read during my commute, so I get 20-40 minute snatches of time, and that’s it. Having a book that is easy to read – and keep up with, is very important.

With most books, you have to back up a page or two. That is something I NEVER had to do with this one! It is well written and captures the imagination, guiding you into the new land and language with such easy grace that you hardly are aware of it.

Great read; great book!

 *****
Karina Kantas’s Illusional Reality is so much more than its initial premise. It begins in somewhat typical fantasy style with an “ordinary” young girl being transported to a mystical world where she is in reality, a princess.

But with powerful character and plot development Kantas takes us alongside our young heroine every step of the way in a story that can be read on several levels. This is achieved through evocative description, narrative which explains how this magical land of Tsinia ticks – and dialogue which is not only realistic, but skilfully used to carry the story forward.

A heady mix of dark danger, warfare and romance sees us reach the end of the story all too quickly, and we can but hope that Karina Kantas will bring our heroine back to Tsinia before long.

Book description

November 12, 2052:
Earth has lost two-thirds of its population to the Great War. Many more lives have been lost to earthquakes, the Clover Virus, and the Death Plague. Years later, survivors are clumped into factions. Two of those factions—the Brotherhood and the Guild Faction—have battled over medical supplies and food for years. The fight is coming to a head as manpower dwindles and the struggle becomes one to gain numbers, even if said numbers are children…
Griffin Storm, an albino man kidnapped and dragged into the Brotherhood, has transformed into a G.O.D., a Genetically enhanced Omni-dimensional being. Two weeks in the brig, and Griffin’s released after it’s determined that he’s learned to control most of his god-like abilities. His abilities have grown almost as much as his love for Tassta Vinetti and his unfortunate blood lust. His bond with Tassta’s twin brother, Penn, has grown as well and is cemented in secrets.
Soon after his release, Griffin’s told that Guild agents and the notorious Trips (super-agents of the Guild) are in the Underground. He must now test his abilities to save the abandoned children that live there. Will Griffin rescue the children of the Underground from a tragic end? Will Tassta and Griffin’s love survive such turmoil? Can a G.O.D. forgive himself when death and destruction follow his every move? Read Blood Phase, the gripping second book in the G.O.D.s Series!
