About the Book

Victor Brandt has a secret. As a new resident to New York, he goes out in search of diversion, and he finds it behind a red door. The Underworld embraces him, and soon he realizes he’s going back night after night just to see Mistress Lethe: a Dominatrix so demanding she will satisfy her submissive into forgetting their own name before stealing her pleasure. But soon Mistress Lethe draws Victor into her world, and he realizes it’s a lot larger than he thought.

Bianca’s coffee business is booming, but her love life is lacking. With each step her friends—the other three horsemen of the apocalypse—take toward happiness, she holds herself back. As visions of the future threaten everything the horsemen have built, Bianca finds a man who sees all of her: the light and the dark, and for a little while she becomes Mistress Lethe, a simple woman and the embodiment of Conquest. But fate plays cruel jokes, and after only a short time with Victor she is confronted with a decision that can save the world but cost her the first man that’s ever made her want to be human.

When a mysterious stranger arrives bearing ill omens, Bianca wonders if she can keep together her motley crew in order to save the world. Or will the threesome’s tangled emotions usher in the apocalypse? Come and see.

Excerpt

Bianca berated herself for succumbing to such distraction. Victor, his body, sighs, and all that toned brown skin. Even after her seal was stolen, she still couldn’t get him from her mind. It’s not like they didn’t have an idea of who stole it. It made sense she’d target Bianca since she’d humiliated her when they fought with Hel in the Underworld. The fact that a hellhound had entered her home while she and Katherine were out and stole the crown enraged her. Even Victor’s beautiful body couldn’t heal that sense of violation. When she raced home and found the place empty, at first fear flashed through her for Katherine’s safety, but she called the others and located them all at Scarlet’s place. They partied along completely oblivious through the theft of her seal and where was she? Shame poured over her as her mind drifted back to Victor.

Every inch of her wanted to take Victor again and mark him as her own. His sighs resounded in her mind as she stared at her ceiling during the night. And often, since she’d woken up, she’d stop and think about him. She’d ridden him on the floor, and he’d taken everything she dished out and wanted more. For her first human BDSM relationship, she wadded in neck deep. She researched online about BDSM relationships and learned she’d claim him if he wanted her to. Collar him and then set the standards of whatever came afterward.

For a moment, she considered what kind of collar one would put on a human and if he might actually wear it. Maybe only at the club or in play. Parts of her discounted the notion because she loved nothing impeding her hands from his bare skin. Beautifully unmarred by accessories…but he also cut a nice suit.

She slammed the open book in her lap closed as the bus rattled along between taxis and tourist rigs. No point in pretending anymore. She’d read ten words since she opened it fifteen minutes prior, and three stops remained until she would exit the bus and trek the couple blocks to work. Cloris wanted her, and all of them, to use her car service, but most of them loved the independence and the ability to go about their day and live their own life. Even if they did spend most of their time together. She worried after Katherine though. The woman cared too much about others for her own good, and Bianca feared someone would take advantage of her gentle heart.

A man bumped against her as the bus hit a pothole. He grabbed the pole in front of her that aligned with the seats. All the seats were taken, or she’d have shifted to another one. She glared over at him to find him leering down her cleavage. If she were Scarlet, she’d make him hurt for the insult. Cloris would stare him down and make him regret his daring. If she were Katherine, she’d politely excuse herself to another area of the bus until departure and then forget about it. She glanced back at him as he continued staring, and she didn’t care. None of it mattered because a numb emptiness suffused her. Sitting on a bus full of humans, milling around, living their menial lives. The end of the world might be a favor to them. Give them something to fight for.

Her hands tingled with the power inside her. She shook them to try dissipating the sensation, but it didn’t work. The edge she’d worn off at the club returned with a vengeance. A reminder as that conquering power began to force its way back up again. The man shifted his hand and grazed her breast as he shifted it up the pole in front of the row of seats. Her control snapped and she grabbed his chin. For a moment, the lust in his eyes, and then behind it the disgusted dirty deeds he’d committed in his life, were all she could see. The way he used and abused women before tossing them away.

His voice broke the spell. “You know you want it.”

She leaned in and pressed her lips to his in barely the promise of a kiss, and shoved the raw power inside him. When she pulled away, she smiled and whispered against his mouth. “You will never touch another woman again. Every time you do your skin will itch and burn as if you caught fire.”

He shifted and attempted to break the grip she held on his chin. She wasn’t Cloris, Katherine, or Scarlet, but she was stronger than a human woman. She patted him on the cheek, before releasing him, and he flinched back with a pained expression.

The bus jerked to a halt and she parted the crowd to exit. Once the cool air hit her face, she realized the direction her mind drifted and stopped cold. She’d only seen Victor a couple days prior, and the time she spent with him kept the edge of the need to control at bay, but after two days without the power, it began to rise from the depths of her demanding to be used, demanding the respect. She sighed as a cold sweat sprouted at her temples. She began a heavy march toward the shop and started to wonder if working would be a bad idea. To be around customers and people making demands of her. That might not be a good mix to her already unpredictable powers. She reached into her pocket for her phone and hit one of her worker’s numbers. “Hey, Tina, it’s B. Do you mind taking my shift this afternoon?”

Gwyn’s Top Ten List of Essentials

  1. iPhone (in whatever new variation is available). I have a veritable iPhone museum at this point. But I do like to stay ahead of technology. Maybe I’ll send a nymph or two to Apple and get the next one early.
  2. Bespoke Merino wool suit. Can’t go wrong with a lovely cut suit. It can make any man look good. And helps any attractive man look better.
  3. I grew fond of him when he became Poet Laureate and I enjoyed spending time with him until his death. I usually have a few of his compilations laying about.
  4. A good quality riding crop. I’ll let you figure out why by reading On a White Horse.
  5. My home. Fairy. It helps that the place follows me wherever I deign to go. But I would miss it if I left her shores for too long.
  6. I’d add Bianca in this list but I’m pretty sure she’d cane me for it. (Also let’s not tell her I put her at six either)
  7. My Harry Potter action figure collection. What? I like to read.
  8. Good wine. The world is a fairer place with a wonderful meal and a quality wine pairing.
  9. Magazine subscription to Cigar Afficianado. You wouldn’t believe how impressed I was when my first copy arrived in fairy. Excellent parcel service, gentlemen.
  10. Nymphs…because…nymphs.

Limitless Publishing Feature Friday – The Elemental Series @HallyWillmott @LimitlessBooks

The Elemental Series

by Author Hally Willmott
 
 
 
Awakenings (Elemental Series Book 1) 
Link: http://amzn.com/B00CHXZTSQ
 
When sixteen-year old Jacey Adison’s parents tell her they must move again, she has never questioned their life style. Until now. When Jacey was two, her parents fled the protection of their birthplace, the mystical dimension of Nemele. Leaving was the only solution her parents believed might allow them to keep their family together and alive. 

The Adisons have been running from a sect of iniquitous beings from Nemele who covet Jacey. Her parents have repressed their adversaries’ relentless tracking efforts by not utilizing their own mystical powers. They have chosen to conceal themselves within the only realm they knew they’d be able to survive. They are living under their self-imposed powerless sanctions on Earth, which constitutes the nineteenth nation of Nemele. 

Her parents have never revealed their true identities to Jacey, consequently keeping her true lineage and unique birthright from her. Jacey’s family has pretended to be non-magical humans as a ploy to prevent an ancient omnipotent entity from killing more innocent beings in its relentless quest to possess Jacey. 

Nemele’s inhabitants have been the elemental architectural guides of a number of nations throughout the cosmos. As Elemental Governors, they’ve influenced the evolution of eighteen other realms throughout the galaxy. Air, earth, wind, fire and water are gifted to each member within the Nemelite Society. It is during their Awakening, or adolescent stage of development, that their talents emerge. 

Every legend, myth and folklore human beings have believed in and have worshiped since the beginning of time originate within Nemele. Representatives from each of the nineteen nations form the Guild of Elders, a federation to oversee and rule Nemele. From Greek Gods to shape –shifting dragons, all exist. 

Born as an anomaly, Jacey possesses rare abilities that both virtuous and corrupt entities seek to use as their own. Should either side prevail, Jacey may be the saviour or downfall of every world within Nemele’s domains. Blindly thrust into life and death situations, Jacey learns of her true powers within her dreaming and conscious states.
 
 
Revelations (Elemental Series Book 2) 
Link: http://amzn.com/B00INEW2EM
 
Destiny is never something one can predict…or is it? When fate plays a role no one can ever say for certain how their life will play out. 

Jacey is now entrenched in a world where every fairytale, myth and fantasy are a reality. There are many who want to help Jacey through her transitions, while at the same time, there are some waiting, hoping to see her fail. 

While learning about her past, she discovers her life is inter-wound with more than one being. Jacey meets new foes and allies as she bides her time waiting for the return of Vincent. 

When her life is threatened, Jacey learns Vincent isn’t coming home…He’s where no one can reach him…including Jacey. 

His best friend Heathe and a number of other allies ban together to help Jacey control her powers and learn how to use them. During this time, she discovers there has been more than one ‘guardian angel’ in her life since the beginning. 

Revelations introduces Jacey to her new world and talents while at the same time, allows her to understand that love is complex and complicated.
 
Keepers (Elemental Series Book 3) 
 
Keepers will introduce a new darker story line to The Elemental Series… 

This book is full of magic, mystery and a story about the Keepers. 

The Keepers are a race of beings who have taught us that the mind isn’t the only place within the body which houses our emotions, thoughts and memories. 

They’re a peculiar race of beings, which have existed within the walls of the Origin since its creation. They are known as the guardians of the Archives, a place within the Origin that houses the knowledge of every nation within Nemele. 

You’ll also be introduced to Lore, a Sunamars. The Sunamars are a division of the Keepers that includes lower class of citizens within their race and are forbidden to feel, touch or express themselves. Just like Jacey, Lore is an Anomaly to the order of Keepers. She was an annihilator addicted to stealing the thoughts, memories and feelings of others – the dealer of nightmares. 

This is a handbook / guide for the Elemental Series by Hally Willmott. It outlines the worlds, characters, symbols and story lines of the first two books in the series. 

The outlines and pictures throughout are an amazing map of where the series is and where Hally is planning to take it…

Author Bio:

L Kendal Author photoI have lived in Droylsden, Manchester, all my life. I live with my parents, my younger sister, Cheryl, and her little girl, Faith.

I never knew what I wanted to do with my life until I began writing. This is my dream. I get most of my inspiration from music, I’ll sit listening to it and suddenly I’m no longer in the room. My stories play like videos in my mind, then I go and write them down.

I’m a very dark person, I love anything spooky, supernatural, or unexplainable, and so that’s the genre I want to write in for the rest of my life.

I work as a freelance graphic artist. I help my own publisher from time to time (World Castle Publications), I’m down as an available illustrator for Crooked Cat Publishing, and have recently been working with Empire Voices, creating the paperback and audio covers for their “Classics” line. I also create promo art and even book trailers. You can find out more about my art by clicking here.

Scary films are a true love of mine, although I find it very hard to find one these days that actually frightens me. My favourite story of all time is Bram Stoker’s, Dracula. The movie is equally as amazing. I also love, The Crow, Constantine and The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Excerpt from Revelations:

Eligos lowered his head, and a moment later his swords appeared. I looked quickly at Keira. I could have sworn that for a brief second I saw a rush of panic cross her eyes.

“Your mind is set then?” he asked her.

“It is.”

“You said you would stay with me, that you would love me forever; I didn’t realize forever came with an expiration date.”

“I gave you the chance to come with me, to stay by my side, but you refused. You let me go alone.”

“Keira, please don’t do this,” Lucian and Tyler begged.

“I’m not doing anything; I’m simply standing here.”

“This is the way it has to be,” Eligos said in a bitterly cold tone, stepping closer to Keira and raising his swords.

“No, no please…please Keira! Eligos, please no,” Lily cried, attempting to run towards them. Danny and Hecate took hold of her and she fought to no avail to get free.

Eligos was only a few feet away from Keira now, and she stepped forward from the car. Her eyes were glowing the brightest of blue. Just when I thought nothing else could surprise me, Keira spoke.

“Eligos, I’ve already torn your heart apart; don’t let your body and soul suffer the same fate,” she taunted.

I heard some of the others gasp in shock. How could she be so cold towards someone she was supposed to have loved? This was not the person we had grown to love…this was not the Keira we all adored.
