All Hallows Eve approaches…
As the veil between the living and the dead thins, can Mads and Ethan protect Isa from the truth? Or will Isa become the next victim of the Crypt King?

The Crypt King peered at the space surrounding him and frowned. She was in class… boring. Where was the spice? The intrigue? She wrote in her notebook, taking notes. The letters were a jumbled mess. How she deciphered any of it was of no consequence.

“Should I fuck you here?” he murmured, running his tongue along the curve of her ear. “On your desk. So, the professor can watch.”

Isa glanced up, confusion filling her sweet, pouty features. “Who… How did you get here? Why are you here?”

He lifted his shoulder, sinking into the warmth of her gaze as her eyes traced his skeletal body. “I thought it was time for us to get to know each other. You have been thinking about me all these years.” He chuckled softly as he leaned into her. “Admit it. You’ve wondered a time or two what it would be like to fuck me.”

She gasped. The sweet, honeyed scent of her arousal spun around him in a decadent web he didn’t want to escape. “You’re a pervert.”

“Maybe I am.” He took her hand in his and placed her palm on his cock. A groan of pure satisfaction fell from his lips. “Even better than I imagined.”

“This is wrong. We shouldn’t be together like this.” Yet, despite her protest, she stroked him. Her hand moving up and down his length, squeezing and teasing his tip. “I have class. Someone could see us.”

“Let them watch. I want them all to know only my cock can make you scream.” In a flash, their positions changed. He sat on the wooden chair she’d been occupying. The retractable side desk had been pushed back into its hiding spot. Isa was naked in his arms, her wet pussy dripping on the head of his knobby cock. She gasped, staring back at him with her mouth wide. Her crystal-topaz eyes were filled with surprise and arousal. Her tongue swiped across her bottom lip, while her inviting expression encouraged him to take what he wanted.

“Oh…” She shivered. “Don’t stop.”

“Naughty, naughty girl.” He groaned, lowering her slowly onto his dick. She fluttered around him, coating him in her juices. “Fuck… Is this what gets you off, my Queen? Have you dreamt of this before?”

She scored her fingernails over his skull, whimpering. “How is this possible?”

“Anything is possible.” He rocked her over his cock, reveling in the way she gripped his dick. “Show your professor your beautiful pink pussy stuffed with your King’s cock.” She splayed her legs over his lap while holding her labia open. The wet squelch of her arousal turned him on more. “Do you squirt, my Queen? Can you ejaculate?”

“I’ve never.” She groaned. Her head fell back on his shoulder, and her eyes were closed. Her lips were parted in a pant. The pretty flush on her skin crept toward her breasts and his mouth watered. He took both of her tits into his palms and squeezed. His reward was the twitch and suck of her cunt and the cry that fell from her lips.

“Look at him, Isa. Look at what you’re doing to him.” The Crypt King changed who was in the classroom with them, allowing Mads a space within his conscious stream. “Look at Mads stroking his cock. See the way his tip is covered in precum? He’s leaking for you. He wants his cock buried deep inside of you like I am. Should we invite him to join us? To notch his dick inside your pussy with mine?”

As the veil between the living and the dead thins, can Mads and Ethan protect Isa from the truth? Or will Isa become the next victim of the Crypt King?

His foot falls were silent, determined not to disturb the grieving girl as he drew near. This beautifully damnable woman who’d haunted his dreams for more years than he recklessly should’ve allowed. She consumed him. Enthralled him. It was as if she drew what was left of his brittle soul from his worthless body, and he willingly gave over to her. With her alabaster skin and long, dark-hickory hair, falling in loose waves around her full, pouting features. Or her entrancing amber eyes that ensnared his attention. He didn’t know if he should devour her or fuck her. Neither were mutually exclusive. Both would be fun. 

He hated her.

Loved her.

Feared her.

She could destroy the worst parts of him. He’d willingly lay himself bare and allow her to pick over his useless bones as carrion would a desolate carcass, left to decompose and become fetid in the humid heat of a Louisiana Summer day. 

Mads stood there, at the top of the knoll, cast in long looming shadows from the setting sun and obelisks built in tribute to the dead, watching as Isa knelt in front of her parents’ vault to place white lilies on their side-by-side graves. He couldn’t help but sneer. Neither of her parents was perfect. Both had secrets, and their secrets were why Isa and her brother Ronan were kept isolated from the rest of the community. Yes, some—the ass kissers as he liked to call them—would say it was because of her being Keres’ protector, but Mads knew the real reason.

What he didn’t know was how much of the truth about that fateful night had made its way back to the daughter of Meredith and Henry DeCuir. Mads had been privy to all of it. From the lies to the scandal to the reason Lydia called Henry to her house. He even knew how the car went off the road and Lydia survived. He wondered absently, as he observed his prey, what Isa’s reaction would be to the news? There’d been no doubt in his mind, she had all the pieces of the grand puzzle hidden in the official documents and investigation of the tragic accident—murder—the only thing he couldn’t fathom was why she never dug into the case.

A part of him was giddy at the idea of her diving into the meat of her parents’ relationship with the Belfleurs. To watch her sully her innocence with their salacious scenes and the hedonistic tendencies, her parents had partaken of. The group orgies with the coven they’d called family—until they weren’t. The nights he’d spied them—the Belfleurs and the DeCuirs—in that very cemetery where she sat, communing with the moon goddess. He licked his lips. Those nights were fun. Would it disgust her to know he’d jerked off while watching them, climaxing hard as the magic sang through the tall, weed strewn grass and church rubble? Would it excite her? Just the memory of such naughty, debauched things made his cock twitch in remembrance of those nights long ago.

The scent of brimstone and sulfur broke the trance Mads had been held within, and his gaze sharpened. There was that mangy mutt, again. Pinpricks of rage spread across Mads’ body, and his hands curled into fists. He’d been nice to Ethan. Gave him a small desolate spot among the headstones and megalithic monuments to call home, yet the bastard couldn’t stay away from what—who—belonged to Mads. He swore he’d make the rabid Church Grim pay for his transgressions, uncaring of how it would appear to his bride-to-be.

Rabid dogs needed to learn to heel. Ethan was no exception to the rule.

“Should we deal with him?” As if sensing the sour turn of Mads emotions, Rafe apparated beside him, rubbing his hands together while licking his lips. 

Rafe, Brody, and Jude were three of the best minions who’d ever had the pleasure of joining him. When he’d been anointed with his particular abilities, he’d claimed three souls and breathed life back into their worthless bodies. Their contracts were indefinite. Their loyalty bought and paid for. Yet, in all the years they’d been together, a true, unbreakable friendship had solidified between them. Something he never thought possible.

Mads turned to his best friend and shook his head. “Isa’s remembering her parents today. Give them space.”

Rafe cocked a pierced brow. His ashen-colored eyes swirled with disappointment. “He’s too close to her. I don’t understand why you haven’t castrated him yet.” The snarled gnash of his words matched the jealousy slithering through Mads’ veins. Truth was, he’d probably asked himself that question a million times, yet he didn’t have the answer either.

“We have all the time in the world,” Mads muttered. “Perhaps I’d like to play with my food before I gorge myself.”

Cover Designer: Claire Holt at luminescence covers
Publication Date: November 17th, 2022
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

I’m caught in the shadows…

…and the shadows want to play.

 

I thought I’d dreamed up the shadow realm and the place I called Dark Castle.

 

But it’s very real. And he’s still here.

 

My prince, my savior, my captor…

 

The monster in my bed.

 

But this time, he’s not alone.

 

I must escape, but first, my prince and his shadow men want me to fulfill their demands.

 

All of them.

 

The longer I stay, the harder it is to resist their dark promises, their insatiable hunger. Because, while these monsters’ smiles are cruel, their touches are the most delicious torture.

 

But they aren’t the only threat in this world. The darkness that wanted me before has found me again, and like my Shadow Prince, it’s ready to claim me as its own…forever.

 

Cruel Shadows is book 1 in the Kingdom of Monsters series. It’s a full length fantasy monster romance with some darker themes, lots of steam, and is a story where the heroine will end up with more than one love interest.

Harper A. Brooks lives in a small town on the New Jersey shore. Even though classic authors have always filled her bookshelves, she finds her writing muse drawn to the dark, magical, and romantic. But when she isn’t creating entire worlds with sexy shifters or legendary love stories, you can find her either with a good cup of coffee in hand or at home snuggling with her furry, four-legged son, Sammy.

She writes urban fantasy and paranormal romance.
