Rise of Spirit
The Monster Within (#6) (A Medieval Fantasy Erotic Romance)eBook - 2013
"Forsaking love seemed like the answer to Solace's problems, but when a new threat to both humanity and the monstrous host appears, denying her emotions might bring dire consequences...(A Cerys du Lys medieval fantasy erotic romance novel)After fleeing from Runehaven and the Demon King, Solace thought her troubles were far behind her. No more apocalyptic prophecies or danger, no more worries about love or demise. Living a life alone in the woods might not be the most exciting, but it should be safe; for her and for everyone around her.Unfortunately, her guarded assertions couldn't be any further from the truth.Instead of a safe haven, Solace becomes even more entrapped in the monstrous host's ominous portent. Unbeknownst even to the denizens of Runehaven, wicked shadows lurk just outside their city, waiting to wreak havoc upon all. Lies and deceit will become death and famine if no one acts in time.In order to save fate, Solace must learn about the past. A witch in the woods isn't quite what she seems and not every presumed enemy actually means her harm. And, not the least of which, Bastion--the Demon King and the only person she's ever loved--refuses to sit idly by while harm might come her way, even after she abandons him.Is it truly safe in these deep, dark woods? Is rejecting love the answer to her problems? Or is it possible to Rise above, embrace her heart and Spirit, and face her fears?With the inauspicious prophecy set to unfold at any moment, will faith and hope, love and knowledge, be enough to end the suffering of the entire human race? Is it wrong to want happiness of her own, too...(This seductive medieval fantasy erotic romance novel of dominance and desire, kings and queens, peasants, monsters, and maidens, is ~33,700 words in length)*EXCERPT*"No, probably not," Kith agreed with a nod. "It's a rather long story, and I don't want to bore you with the details. Kinda dull, I'd say. Not a lot of action, either. It's like a romance, I suppose. A dull, boring romance story.""A romance?" Solace asked, her head perking up. Rolling to her side on the bed, she peered at Kith intently. "I've read romances sometimes," she said. "I like the ones with pirates. The pirates always seem nicer than everyone else, though they're supposed to be meaner.""Oh, there's a pirate in my romance story," Kith said with a grin. "Not the same sort, but it's true. To me, he did seem nicer than everyone else, but he was supposed to be meaner.""Really?" Solace asked, excited. "Can you tell me? Is this a true story? It's your story, right? About you? Were you kidnapped?""Oh, yes!" Kith laughed. "Sort of. Someone needed to go with the pirate king, or else horrible things would happen. Everyone was scared, but not me. I had no reason to be, I suppose. So I said I'd go. Just like that.""I don't know if that's really kidnapping," Solace said."Probably not, but it felt like it sometimes. I couldn't really leave, you see. I was trapped in more ways than one. Still am, sort of.""Oh." Solace considered that, hoping to figure it out. It didn't make much sense to her, unless... "Is the pirate still here? Are you hostage in these woods? That's why you live alone, isn't it?"The woman smiled sadly and shook her head. "Oh no, dear. He's gone. He died a long time ago, unfortunately. Or he might as well have. He died protecting me."This made more sense to her. "From Demon King Arma," Solace said, matter-of-factly.Kith burst into laughter and grinned, nearly dropping her ladle into the soup and splashing it everywhere. "No! Heavens, no! Not in the least. Arma was my pirate."Solace spluttered and choked, caught off guard. "What?" she managed to ask."-- Provided by publisher.
