When Prince Duncan Caldwell loses his way home and knocks on a stranger’s door, looking to find shelter, he doesn’t know his life is about to change forever. Not because he can’t tear his gaze away from the beautiful woman who opens that door, but more so because she’s a stranger yet he can’t shake the feeling she belongs to him. And discovering she’s been banned from his home can’t stop the vortex of his feelings nor the truth of his world from crashing down on him.
This is just the beginning of the Virtus Saga, where nothing is as it seems. Not the world, since its all-pervading sex drive hides a scary lack of violence. Not the people, since soul mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled until that fateful knock on Ylianor Meyer’s dilapidated shack.
This book starts the love and the passion that entwines fiery sex into this intricate three-way relationship. It’s a unique connection, laced with jealousy and violence that are unknown to their world. This is not just another erotic dark fantasy series. This is the making of a trio. Of three remarkable characters that must overcome their uncontrollable lust to face the truth about themselves and their planet if they want to defeat the darkness about to devour them. To be as one whilst three! To share power and love in equal measures. This is their real challenge, the lesson they must learn. Otherwise, how will their world survive?
Grinning coldly, Chris took out a pocketknife, then went to the fireplace to heat up the blade over the flames.
Obviously seeing what Chris was holding Duncan moved. “Angel, what are you doing?”
The demon shrugged nonchalantly. “Nothing, just a simple lesson.” He checked the knife, then placed it back on the fire. “Don’t worry.”
At the last words, Ylianor felt some strange energy flow from the demon to the prince, something powerful that fell on Duncan as if it were a fine web to hold him captive. She wanted to help him get out of it, but young Templeton was already on top of her, pinning her to the ground and waving the scalding blade in front of her face. “You see, dearie, my gift is to hurt people.” His voice was coldly detached as if it were another person speaking. “I get this urge to cause someone intense pain and I can’t even begin to tell you how much pleasure I get from cutting a person bit by tiny bit.” Lowering the blade, he trailed it on her flesh. “Piece by little piece.” Hypnotically, his voice abated any attempt at resistance. “Just like this.” Without further ado, he knifed her thigh.
Searing hot pain burned her, then blood spilled on her pants. As if in a drugged trance, Ylianor watched while Chris took them off, together with her shirt, to stare in rapture at the cut. Then he made another incision next to it, tracing with his finger the mingling blood from the two wounds.
She heard Duncan’s voice as if it came from another world.
“I think we understand now, so you can stop—”
Chris seems dangerous but intriguing. This makes me want to know more.
What a fascinating premise for a story. The excerpt is intriguing
This has got to be the villain of the piece, right? Otherwise why would you have shown us his sadism with such vivid strokes?
Well, he is and he isn’t. Let’s say it’s complicated and undrrstanding is something that you can accomplish after 8 novels and a whole lot of sex 🙂
Are you up to it, Ed?
