His True Queen EBOOK
A beautiful, defiant princess.
A renowned, sinfully gorgeous Hollywood actor.
A love affair that is sure to rock the British Monarchy…and the world.

Their love affair began intensely and passionately. Princess Adeline and Josh Jameson knew any future together was impossible—her status as a princess and his standing as a Hollywood heartthrob dictated that. But the heights of pleasure they could take each other to were wildly unanticipated by them both.
Josh’s absolute disregard for Adeline’s status quickly drew her into his hedonistic world. And her perfectly worn mask and false façade captivated Josh to the point of obsession.
The boundaries became blurred. The physical became emotional. Their hearts became entwined.
But a cruel turn of events rips their worlds apart and Adeline is more bound than ever by the protocol and expectations her title commands. The army of royal advisors who guard the secrets and scandals of the Monarchy will go to unthinkable lengths to keep the smoke and mirrors in place…and Josh away from Adeline. She knows the power she possesses comes with agonizing sacrifices. Walking away from Josh devastates her…but it keeps him safe from the corrupt institution that has ruled her life.
Yet Josh refuses to lose the woman who has consumed him so completely, distorted his boundaries, and stripped him of all sensibility.
Will the power of the British Monarchy triumph? Or will Adeline and Josh’s fierce love for each other change the course of history?

The Darkest Angel (Lords of the Underworld #4.5) by Gena Showalter

18761015The Darkest Angel (Gena Showalter)


SUMMARY


Winged warrior Lysander has been alive for centuries, and yet he's never known
desire—until he meets Bianka. Spawned from the bloodline of his enemy, the beautiful but deadly Harpy is determined to lead the untouched Lysander into temptation. He may try to evade her attempts, but even the most iron-willed demon assassin can resist for only so long…


MY REVIEW


Lysander: Angel (one of the Elite Seven)
Bianka Skyhawk: Harpy (daughter of a Harpy and a phoenix shape-shifter and great-granddaughter of Lucifer)


Lysander wants to snatch Bianka just to save this world from her dark influence. She is a manipulator, a killer, a liar, a thief and lately she is his obsession.

Lysander is moreover a virgin. He doesn’t like the thought of sex. It looks messy and un-fun. But somehow every time, Lysander thinks of Bianka, he simultanuesly thinks of sex.

Anyway, Bianka needs to be trained. So Lysander grabs her and takes her to his cloud/palace.

“I was not teasing you. I mean to keep you here forever and train you to be sinless.”

But he really does not understand harpies.

“Gods, how—oops, sorry. I mean, golly, how adorable are you? ‘I mean to keep you here forever and train you,’” she said in her best impersonation of him.
....“Be honest,” she said. “You saw me and wanted a piece, right?”


Poor clueless Lysander

For the briefest of moments, horror blanketed his face. “No,” he croaked out, then cleared his throat and said more smoothly, “No.”
…That muscle started ticking below his eye again. “You are a menace.”


Before he realizes what is going on, he is a mess, his life is a mess, his cloud is a mess and Bianka is having the time of her life. And Lysander is virgin no more.

This is one of my favourite couples in the series. They will appear on and off in the next books.
Favourite scene: Lysander and Paris are fighting in a large tub of oil wearing only loincloths.
“Was that fun for you?”
“Yes.”

Naughty Bianka!

About Ker Dukey

My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of you seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles…prepare for the unexpected. I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters growing up. My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling. When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

The Darkest Whisper (Lords of the Underworld #4) by Gena Showalter

5509920The Darkest Whisper (Gena Showalter)


SUMMARY


He is the keeper of Doubt and his entire world’s about to be rocked.

Bound by the demon of Doubt, Sabin unintentionally destroys even the most confident of lovers. So the immortal warrior spends his time on the battlefield instead of the bedroom, victory his only concern…until he meets Gwendolyn the Timid. One taste of the beautiful redhead, and he craves more.

Gwen, an immortal herself, always thought she’d fall for a kind human who wouldn’t rouse her darker side. But when Sabin frees her from prison, battling their enemies for the claim to Pandora’s box turns out to be nothing compared to the battle Sabin and Gwen will wage against love…


MY REVIEW


Sabin:Demon of Doubt
Butterfly: on right rib cage and waist
His curse: His demon creates insecurities to everyone including unfortunate Sabin. His self-doubts do not let him be happy and they make him constantly miserable. Fighting and killing is his only pleasure.

Gwen Skyhawk or Gwendolyn the Timid:Harpy
Supernatural ability: She is an immortal (although for the time being is only 27 years old) and very strong (although she does not particularly crave violence). The great mystery is who Gwen’s father is. She thinks that he is an angel. (view spoiler)

Sabin is the co-leader of the Lords of the Underworld with Lucien. His demon of Doubt is his strongest weapon. He whispers words of insecurities and creates strong emotions of self-doubt. Most of his enemies commit suicide when they listen at the whispers for a long time.
Moreover his last lover, Darla, had killed herself because of the voices and he’d vowed not to get involved again. And then one day he meets Gwen. And he wants her. And Doubt wants her, too.

“I want her.”
“I want her, too”, Doubt piped up.
“You can’t have her”. Which meant he couldn’t either. “Remember Darla? As strong and confident as she was, you still managed to break her down.”
Gleeful laughter. “I know. Wasn’t it fun?”
His hands fisted at his sides. Fucking demon.

Gwen was imprisoned by Hunters for a year, until Sabin and the Lords saved her. Sabin really desires to keep her, but the rest of the Lords insist that she has to leave. Because surprisingly they are scared of her.

This time we learn about female beings stronger than the Lords. The Harpies: Gwen and her sisters Bianka, Taliyah and Kaia.

“The woman was going to kill him, and not because she was stronger and more vicious than he was. Which, if he thought about it, she was. He’d never ripped a man’s throat out with his teeth, and he was damned impressed that Gwen had. She’d made the Lords of the Underworld look like marshmallows.”

Gwen will be strong enough to defeat all the doubts (I honestly wanted to shout at Doubt sometimes as well “Oh shut up”) and the love between Sabin and Gwen will grow stronger and stronger.

“I can’t believe I resisted you, even for a second.”
“More.”
“Have I told you yet how beautiful you are? How much I love you?”
“More!”

It is so sweet and so right the way each of the lonely immortal warriors is mated and he finds happiness.
