TOUR-EXCERPT
My Lady, so perfect and pale, with such beauty and grace is a sensual goddess to be worshipped and treasured.
She is the treasure that I yearn to have as mine and I focus now solely on the change. I am not sure how much time passes when my power suddenly snaps back into me. I grind my teeth to keep from grunting from the impact. Surprised that Than has not sensed my power on the move, either that, or he has not shown me that he knows. I am also very pleased that he is so consumed with his search, that he does not realize what I have done. “Mmm...” Both Than and myself turn toward the feminine sound. I feel my eyes widen in surprise, but I quickly conceal it. It worked, from what I am able to see of her. I can only see her face and the pale upper flesh of her breasts. What lovely breasts they are. I feel my mouth water for a taste of her creamy globes, and my hands itch to feel their weight. The woman from my dreams kneels, nude within the heather, looking disoriented. Her hair is a tangled mess, partially covering her face. She does not seem to be able rise and stand solidly. Gravity currently appears to be her enemy. Observing her, I feel as if I am floating. Light and filled with air, like one of my Uncle’s magic bubbles when it floats up toward the sun. Higher and higher, drifting into bliss, and I find myself smiling. She glances up, sees me, and her mouth forms an ‘O’ of surprise. Her breathing becomes slightly erratic. It looks as if she is unable to catch a proper breath. I find myself moving toward her as though being pulled by some unknown force, completely captivated by the sight before me and unable to resist its call. Now, we only have eyes for each other. I feel everything else around us disappear. It is now just her and I, caught in a spell woven of lust and intense longing. I am lost within the depths of her soul-filled, pleading eyes. I move closer to answer their call when an annoying buzzing sound pulls me from the spell.

Biography: I started off early in competitive sports and quickly got into football where I immediately adapted. I maintained football throughout my entire life.

However, in my junior year I was in a terrible car crash where my head was crushed as I was ran over in the street by a truck after being catapulted at 80mph. I was airlifted to the hospital where I had emergency brain surgery and my heart failed. They immediately brought me back with an adrenaline shot where they presumed I would not live. I was in a coma two weeks. When I woke I had to re-learn everything including how to function and walk again.

Review

*I was given a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
In a world where darkness is growing by the day, Dezso finds a creature of pure goodness and light in Iria, but things are never as simple as they seem.  Iria gives up everything for Dezso, but will her sacrifice may not be enough.
"Lady's Desire" is a trip into a world of legendary creatures where every corner is a new complication.  This book is written from the point of view of both Iria and Dezos which means that the reader gets to see the story from two different perspectives.  While everything is new Iria, she is strong and willing to do what is necessary to try to make make the relationship work while battling the growing darkness.  Dezso is more lover than fighter when it comes Iria, but the world is not black and white and he strives to be the man that Iria needs while fighting both inner and external demons.  The relationship between Dezso and Iria is sweet and sultry, however, in the end love might not be enough to save them from destiny.
If you are one of those people who wants to immerse yourself in fantasy, but still be able to actually understand what you are reading then "Lady's Destiny" is the book for you.
