Atalanta Ravin, or Lana, as everyone calls her is not on a very good streak of luck. First, she is left at the altar. Second she sets out to begin a new life and ends up in another dimension leaving her unable to return home.

Lana is a great character. She has been through a lot of turbulent situations really close together in timing.  She takes time to mourn and then she picks herself up and moves on. She is truly an adventurer at heart, and I believe we relate to her on this level. Who hasn’t at one point in their life wanted a do-over? As readers we get one through Lana!

This is the newest Knights of the Black Swan book by Victoria Danann, and it is being released in three parts (very sneaky Ms. Danann) I always look forward to these books as it is currently one of my favorite series. Releasing Prince of Demons in three parts really heightens the suspense for readers, but Danann’s books are always exciting. She hooks you right from the start and there is no getting loose. When I reached the end of part one I am pretty sure I screamed out loud frantically trying to scroll for another chapter. The ending of the first part kind of felt like crashing into a wall; it was pretty sudden. I definitely think it left the intended effect, because I can’t stop thinking about it. Needless to say this is shaping up to be a great read!

The lost memories of a thief…
The first twelve years of Alina’s life are a black void. An accomplished thief, she uses her cloaking ability to pick pockets as well as stage elaborate heists. Digging deeper into her past sets off a chain of events that puts her, and the family she has just discovered, in the sights of their worst enemy.

…and the scarred heart of a guardian…
In secret, Lash Watcher Caine plots vengeance for the destruction of everything he loved. Branded by loss, he longs to find his one true mate, knowing that only with her will his heart fully heal. When his brief meeting with Alina is interrupted by her elaborate evade-and-escape plan, he knows there is more to her than meets his watchful eyes. But nothing can prepare him for the lethal power of her mind.

…collide at the fault line of destiny.
A brilliant villain with a vicious and loyal army behind her can only be stopped by one force: the combined power of four women who command the elements. Alina, with her newly-discovered affinity to the earth, becomes the linchpin to halting the desecration of their world. Thrown into a battle plan and a new family, she finds joy in in the quiet strength of Caine’s arms. But when the secrets to her past are revealed, she learns a terrible price has been paid in advance. The very magic that allowed her to live to fulfill a prophecy will forever deny her heart’s deepest wish.

On Wicked Ground is now available for pre-order!

Book Description:

 

Three sisters. Motherless daughters of the high king. The eldest is the warrior-woman heir;the middle child is shy and full of witchy intuition;and the youngest, Princess Amelia, she is as beautiful as the sun and just as generous.

 

Ami met her Prince Charming and went away to his castle on the stormy sea-cliffs—and that should have been her happily ever after. Instead, her husband lies dead and a war rages. Her middle sister has been taken into a demon land, turned into a stranger. The priests and her father are revealing secrets and telling lies. And a power is rising in Ami, too, a power she hardly recognizes, to wield her beauty as a weapon, and her charm as a tool to deceive…

 

Amelia has never had to be anything but good and sweet and kind and lovely. But the chess game for the Twelve Kingdoms has swept her up in it, and she must make a gambit of her own. Can the prettiest princess become a pawn—or a queen?

Excerpts:

Ribbon of Darkness:

Draven turned her around in his arms. “I’d suggest you watch

yourself if you wish to keep your clothes while we walk the next

few miles to the Pole. I have absolutely no qualms about taking

you right here, snow and all.” Draven leaned in close to her face.

His lips hovered over hers, causing Ribbon to bite her lip just so

she didn’t close the small distance between them. “Trust me, Donella,

when I tell you the cold will be the last thing on your pretty

little mind.” His eyes slid half-closed.

 

Tempting Clover:

“You’re already wet. I could claim you. Didn’t you say you wanted to have an orgasm, that it was torture?” Malik’s words came out low and sinister. Clover suddenly regretted ever wanting an orgasm, or at least telling him so.

She held her breath. Oh God. He’s going to take me. Clover fought harder and he let her break away. His laughter filled the air between them. Her chest heaved with fear, her breath coming in hard gasps.

“However, it wouldn’t satisfy me little morsel. You could never please me properly.” He walked past her laughing as he went to his lab to make more human potions.

 

Steele Your Soul:

He coaxed her lips apart for the briefest of moments before her hand came up and landed a stinging blow to his cheek. Amused, Joren laughed, a full belly laugh. The kind of thing he hadn’t done in ages. The lass was a feisty one; he’d give her credit. And oh so pretty when angered. Her cheeks had flushed a dark shade of pink, and her brown eyes darted all over the ship, anywhere but on his. He rubbed his cheek. She had a solid swing. He licked his lips to savor the sweet taste of her mouth.

“How dare you!”

“How dare I? Oh, elfess, I dare all the damn time. I’m a pirate.” He wanted to scoop her up and haul her off to his bed. But he wasn’t the kind of elf who took advantage in such a way—no, she’d come to him instead. He might even play hard to get. But she would come.

 

A Hint of Cayenne:

Hawthorn stood before her. Dark hooded eyes, broad shoulders filling up the space, and every bit the male she had seen a few hours ago. A jar of honey in his hand.

“What are you…how could––”

“I find you?” His voice rolled out calm and deep, slipping over her and moistening her panties.

“Yes. Find me.” She swallowed. She looked at the jar of honey and back to him. His gaze bore into hers, and she averted her eyes opening the door. “Come in.”

He walked over the threshold, his boots thumping softly on the floor. “I have a knack for finding the things I’m after.” He grinned.

Cocky bastard. She shut the door and crossed her arms. “And what are you doing here?” Inside, butterflies tossed in her stomach. She wanted him to say he’d come for her but, at the same time, was terrified at the thought of hearing him say it. Her mind jumped from one side to the other. Her hands fisted shirt where he couldn’t see.

“I told you I’d find you.” He took one long stride toward her. “We left things a little…” He took another step, and she backed up until she hit the wall. “Steamy.” His voice dropped so low she barely heard the last word. Her heart hammered at her ribcage.

“What…ah.” She cleared her throat. “What do you want?”

Thorn put his free hand on the wall beside her, and she melted into him. How had he gotten so elfing good at teasing her? “I want you of course,” he said, his lips barely above hers.

 

A Whisper of Rue:

“Rue, you can call me every name in your pretty little head but it won’t change anything. Afraid you’re stuck with me, and your decisions will affect everything. But you’re stubborn and you won’t see things my way instantly. You’ll need proof. I understand. But don’t say I didn’t warn you,” he stated.

Proof of what? He was playing games with her and she wasn’t in the elfing mood. He had no right to come in her home. No right to make demands on her. No right to invade every inch of her privacy. She wanted the earpiece out. Why’d she have to get all curious and put the stupid thing in to begin with? Her mother always said her curiosity would lead her to trouble one day and Rue had the dreadful sense that today was that day. “I don’t know why you chose me to do whatever it is you need. Probably something horrible. But quit fucking around and remove the spell.”

“You want it removed?”

“Yes.” She hissed the word. Her anger bubbled inside threatening to tear her apart, mainly because she couldn’t see the man attempting to control her.

“Then come and find me.”

 

 

About the Author:

An elfess in human form, Decadent enjoys dipping her fingers into the human realm where she took pen to paper and began the tales of the trouble with elves. Her obsessions include reading, Dean Winchester, and honey.

 

She will devour your soul with glimpses of the feral ridden drow elves, with their dark skin and soul consuming. She’ll sneak morsels of naughty thoughts to you via goblins, and seduce you into stepping inside the elven realm where females disappear when lust takes over among other elfish troubles.

 

Beware the sprites.

 

Follow the wisps.

 

But never look a drow elf king in the eyes…

~ SYNOPSIS ~
An erotic paranormal romance…
Dimitri LeBlanc, sexy and charismatic beta of Acadian Wolves, survives a brutal attack after his wolf succumbs to a dark force, threatening his very existence. Waking up, tied to a bed, his amusement transforms into lust as a beautiful stranger heals his beast. Intrigued by his mysterious savior, the tables quickly turn, when in the heat of a dark desert night, he rescues her from a barbaric Alpha. Dimitri is inexplicably drawn to the alluring woman, and the discovery that she’s his mate rouses his hunger to claim her as his own.
Gillian Michel, a New York City photographer, conceals a secret hybrid past and mystical abilities. An entire lifetime, she’s deliberately avoided wolves, but a seductive encounter with an irresistible beta leaves her craving his touch, his lips on hers. Passion ignites her desire, leaving her yearning to submit to the powerful wolf who tests her sexual limits.
Deep in the heart of New Orleans, Dimitri and Gillian seek a cure to the parasite maligning his mighty beast. Still on the run from a malevolent force, they lure their enemy into the bayou. Will Gillian sacrifice her gifts to save the man she loves, destroying her own immortality? And will Dimitri eradicate the evil that has invaded his soul while protecting his mate from an adversary who threatens to kill them both?

Beauty’s Beast is the story of Lord Erik Trevayne.  Erik is cursed the night his first wife dies.  Lord Trevayne is now changing into something less than human, and he needs an heir before his transformation is complete.  Kristine is about to go to the gallows for murder when she is spared by Erik. He takes her as his wife only so she can bear a child for him. Kristine had heard stories about the Demon Lord of Hawksbridge Castle, but she is determined to try to give her marriage a chance.  Lord Trevayne isn’t looking for a true wife, but soon finds himself having feelings for Kristine. Erik cannot bring himself to let Kristine into his heart, because he believes a beauty such as she could never love a beast.

 

I both adored and pitied Erik and Kristine. They have both endured hardship, but most of all they are both consumed by loneliness. It was Kristine who really surprised me the most.  Her strength and stubbornness astounded me, but underneath that is her capability to be so caring after life had been so seemingly cruel. Erik is a caring man although he tries to be cold and indifferent. His character was so heartbreaking and yet beautiful.

 

Ashley made me feel like I was in a different time and place, and I was totally lost in the story. The thing that struck me the most was the vivid imagery, and the emotion behind it. You know an author has written something worth reading when they can bring forth the emotions in the reader that is being felt by the character. I could not put down Ashley’s enchanting version of the Beauty and the Beast story. Readers are sure to flock to this heartfelt tale!

Beauty

Fair of face and figure, Kristine is young, innocent, pure. Yet she has been condemned to the gallows for killing a man. The only one who can save her is a lord so infamous that some say he is the son of the Devil himself. . .

And the Beast

Erik Trevayne is called the Demon Lord of Hawksbridge Castle, but few know of the curse he lives under. Or the terrifying changes slowly gnawing away at his humanity. When he weds her, all he wants of Kristine is a son. But when he beds her, a wild hope is born–that love that can tame even the most monstrous of beasts…
