Soundtrack - Caressed by the Edge of Darkness


Certain songs can just strike a cord. They can trigger emotions, drudge up memories (good and bad). Well, this morning a few songs helped me better understand my characters and their world. I'm currently working on Caressed by the Edge of Darkness (Rulers of Darkness #5), Gabriel's book. This story has been a long time in the making. I mean, hell, its the 5th book of a 6...maybe 7 book series. However, when I originally mapped out this series it was meant to be the last book, but the characters have led me in a different direction. 

Gabriel has a very complicated back story, like most tortured heroes, and he will have to overcome centuries of pain, mistrust, and bad habits to claim his happily ever after.

Can Jordan help him overcome the miseries of his past and find a future with her?


Here are the songs on my play list this morning:

1. Seven Chakra - CES cruEvery time I hear this I think of Gabriel's past and his journey from being a blood slaved forced to become a vampire so his Mistress wouldn't lose her favorite pet to mortality, and  how he is now the leader of a strong vampire Clan.  He's "shatter proof".
2. Not Strong Enough by Apocalyptica
Today's inspirational song for Gabriel and Jordan's relationship:

Please note, songs are explicit.

~ Jordan’s body was heavy, her heart struggled to beat.
Was she dying? She gasped for breath. His scent hit her like a shot, filled her lungs, and spread heat through her body.
The vampire’s lips brushed her brow. “Hold on, sweet.” Oh, god, that sexy, sexy voice. Deep and rough.
Gabriel’s arms tightened around her as he sat on the edge of a bed.
She wasn’t dying, she was drifting in and out of the most erotic dream she’d ever had. He held her immobile, pressing her mouth to a gash in his throat. His blood slipped over her tongue and down her throat. She knew this was wrong but, damn, his taste…ecstasy. A decadent dessert.~

Review of Caressed by a Crimson Moon

PRUF Reads Review of Caressed by a Crimson Moon (Rulers of Darkness #3) 
5 of 5 Stars

King to the Validus Clan exiled himself  over 300 years ago, unable to keep his throne. His mind is as shattered and broken as the windows and mirrors, whose reflection he can't seem escape. His descent into madness has been a painful one. Memories and visions of torture and blood lust accompany the voices and blood curdling screams inside his head. Hadrian is damaged, lethal and while no angel, he's fallen, to his knees, broken.

Caressed by a Crimson Moon, the 3rd installment of the Rulers of Darkness series, made my heart hurt. There are characters that you follow and sometimes, just sometimes, there are characters that you feel. You feel their pain, their anxiety, self loathing and triumphs. Hadrian was that character for me. Ms. Greene ripped his heart, mind, body and soul wide open, leaving for you, the reader, no emotion untapped. The wordplay flowed effortlessly, keeping me drawn in and anxious for more.

Before laying eyes on Falcon, Eva had never actually seen a vampire before. That doesn't mean she hasn't heard the rumors, the stories of the monster, the mad king who will drain her, slowly, painfully. Is Eva escaping one hell only to be thrown into another? There is no slow burn here. The whirlwind begins almost immediately and can I just say, by chapter 4...yeah, that. There are secrets and revelations, tests of willpower and all consuming passion that is raw, sensual and downright primal, making for a thrilling ride.

Fans of the series will be thrilled to get a better look at Hadrian and Falcon's 'bromance' and what lays ahead for my favorite Black Knight. Silvie is a fiestly little witch who is quite the puppet master and appearances by other characters that together, help make this series what it is, and is coming to be. This is, by far, the best of the series to date and with an intriguing ending, leading to book #4!

The Rulers of Darkness and the Black Knights at their side make for a dark, sexy, lethal clan you'll want to sink your own teeth into!

~Gannon shook his head and sighed, “I don’t get you, man.”
“You’ve never shared my opinion; therefore I don’t expect you to understand.”
“No, that’s not it.” Gannon’s gaze dropped to the floor as he rubbed his nape. “You’ve been different.”
Gabriel couldn’t hold back his laugh. “You’re mistaking my recent kindness towards humans with caring.”
Gannon rolled his eyes. “You can’t deny you haven’t been your usual sociopath self the last couple months.”
Irritation rising, Gabriel snapped, “This conversation grows tiresome. If you have a point, make it.”
“I think Jordan is the cause.”~

Nerdy, Dirty & Flirty Review of Rulers of Darkness Box Set 1

Thank you to Kate from Nerdy, Dirty & Flirty for reviewing the Rulers of Darkness Box Set 
(Books 1-3)

description
4.5 Stars
 Caressed by Moonlight

Victoria and Dorian don't have your normal love affair. They are kind of thrown at each other, but by different fates.
Victoria and her little sister just lost everything they have and have to go and live with their nasty aunt. This aunt then tells Victoria she has one month to find a husband or she will never see her sister again. Really who does that to family?
Dorian is in London to get the witches away from his clan. As far as he knows it is working. He's been there for quite awhile and seems to have gotten a lady's man reputation. One that Victoria has already been warned about.
He feels a pull he just can't explain or ignore, he has to have her. And have her he will.
After being caught kissing Dorian by her aunt, Victoria is kicked out of the house and with no where else to go she turns to Dorian. Their story continues with their fantastic chemistry, their stories, secrets and anything they are willing to share with each other.
Seems as though Dorian has found his mate in Victoria, but will she accept her now life or will she run?
I really loved this book and couldn't put it down.

Caressed by Night


If you enjoyed the first book like I did, I'm pretty sure you liked this one too.
Dimitri and Kerstyn have a chemistry that they can't fight for too long.
Dimitri, believed to have been dead for 400 years, decides to join society once again, in Las Vegas. Here because this is where the Shaw told him his mate was. Being one of the four original vampires makes him very powerful. He had run into the same situation as Dorian did, in that someone wanted to be king and would do anything to get there. Little did these men know that that isn't how it worked. He chose to let Ven believe he was dead, now he is back to claim his thrown. As you probably figured out by the first book, in order for the rightful kind to claim the throne, they had to find their mates. So far, Dorian has and now it is Dimtri's turn. Just getting Kerstyn on board might be a challenge. Only because Dimitri can see glimpses of the future and what he sees he can't stop.
Kerstyn is 26, living with her best friend and living her life. Only she feels something is missing, but doesn't know exactly what that is. Until her something missing saves her from being jumped in an alley. Not only does this happen, but her roommate/best friend kicks her out when she gets home. Sylvie (a shaw witch) is there to help and brings her to a friends that is looking for a roommate. And of all people that open the door, Dimitri. How Kerstyn's luck is changing yeah?
you really can't go into too much detail with these without giving too much away.
I can say I loved it, loved how the stories from book one and this one kept going and giving you pieces of what is to come. I will also say that with any story the characters have their secrets. I mean Kerstyn has to come to terms she is falling in love with a vampire of all things, and he is way older than her, and he is very very powerful.

Caressed by a Crimson Moon


Hadrian and Eva have a little more of a complicated story. They have to overcome their own fears of feeling like they are not good enough for anyone. Both very broken souls have to join together for the sake of the future.

Again, if you read the first two books I think it is safe to say that Sylvie has had a lot to do with what is going on with the vampire clans. Getting them their kings back, working on ways to get rid of the Red Order, and trying to find peace between the witches and the vampires.
This book sheds a little more light onto who Sylvie really is and what role she has to play, whether she wants it or not. You also get to know Falcon, Hadrian's right hand man, a little better. His loyalty might just drive him crazy. He is the first one to figure out that there is something more between Eva and Hadrian, but is reluctant to let it play out.
Only because Hadrian had isolated himself for over 300 years and has a very dark side to himself. He was not turned normally, he actually consumed the soul of his maker and has a constant reminder of the horrible person he was. This is one of the things Eva seems to calm in him. Whenever she is around he gets some quiet.
Eva is a rare shifter, one who doesn't actually know what her other half is. She was always told it was human, but not so much. When her mother died she was taken by her father's pack and made to live like a servant for 10 years. She is given to Hadrian as part of a contract. Never did she think she could actually have feelings for someone like that. She heard the stories and wanted nothing to do with him. Until he gets close, then her body betrays her.
Again, can't give too much detail, but as I said theirs is a more complicated story. They both need to overcome their own insecurities and learn to trust each other.
Hadrian and Eva both know there is something more, but neither wants to admit it. When Eva goes through her transition they both have a lot to accept whether they want to or not. They both think that going their own ways will be better, but will it?
You know after reading this book that there is much more to this story to come and I can't wait.
