Shadow Quest

Book 1
Kiersten Fay
15

She needs his protection. He needs her forever.

After years of captivity by man who cruelly exploits her mysterious powers, Analia makes a desperate and dangerous bid to escape. Risking her life, she stows away on a passing merchant ship, which could lead to freedom…or a life worse than death.

Staying hidden from the fearsome demon captain and his crew proves impossible, however. And when Analia is discovered, she must keep her secrets close while contending with her freshly awakened desire for the brutally handsome demon. But those whom she escaped want her back and will stop at nothing to reclaim her.

Interview with the Author 

Q - Tell us a little bit about your Shadow Quest series.
 
Shadow Quest is a unique mix of genres that incorporates paranormal romance, fantasy, and science fiction romance. My characters are based loosely in mythology with some kick-but mythical creatures such as demons, witches, and fey-like beings. Since they're all from different planets,I suppose they'd be considered aliens.
 
Each book focuses on the relationship of the hero and heroine and the trust they must build with one another. The connection they form is a slow-burn at first, and then turns combustible. I play with the fated mates theme, but the conflict and mistrust keeps things interesting. Ultimately love wins out in the end, if they can survive the journey.
 
Q - What order should I read the books in?
 
Each book can be read in any order and the reader can still follow along, but for the full experience, I suggest the following sequence:
 
- Demon Possession
- Demon Slave
- Demon Retribution
- Demon Untamed
 
Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?
 
Paranormal fans are ravenous, and my Shadow Quest series hits the spot. Readers have told me they have read Demon Possession several times over and still enjoy it. It's a series that draws you in and makes you long for more.
 
Readers who enjoy romance, alpha males, and action will want to take this epic journey.
 
Q - What inspired the world you created in Demon Possession, having it take place in space and different planets?
 
I've always been interested in sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal,and mythology. I thought about the kind of romance novels I enjoy reading and what I liked about them: the idea that there could be a supernatural world within our own, veiled from sight.
 
Then I thought, "What if all these creatures were really from different planets?" After that, the world building came naturally.

Shadow Quest is a unique mix of genres that incorporates paranormal romance, fantasy, and science fiction romance. My characters are based loosely in mythology with some kick-but mythical creatures such as demons, witches, and fey-like beings. Since they’re all from different planets, I suppose they’d be considered aliens.

Each book focuses on the relationship of the hero and heroine and the trust they must build with one another. The connection they form is a slow-burn at first, and then turns combustible. I play with the fated mates theme, but the conflict and mistrust keeps things interesting. Ultimately love wins out in the end, if they can survive the journey.

Raised extremely religious, Luann is having a bad day. Short one fianc‚, now there are snakes coming after her to punish her for her sins. Forget that. Luann?s sick and tired of being the youngest virgin headed towards spinsterhood. In desperation she prays for sex! And just like that a Lust Angel and his motorcycle gang appear to satisfy her every carnal and sinful desire.

~~~~~ Excerpt ~~~~~

Harold reached for my hand, and I felt my pulse race. This was it. He was about to propose.

Why else would he have brought me up the trail to the look out on a weeknight and made me pack a picnic basket. We?d been dating long enough, the time had come to make it official, to give him the rights to claim my body as his due in the eyes of the Lord.

I should have been excited.

I should have waited patiently.

I should have allowed nature to take its course.

But I didn?t.

You see, what I haven?t told you yet, is that I had a secret.

A terrible, horrible, sinful secret.

I was a lusting woman.

That?s right, I was a woman who desired to have sex with another person. Outside of marriage. Anywhere at all.

I?d even done the unthinkable, and touched myself.

If Harold knew, he?d never want me.

I lived in fear at every service that the serpents would discover my sin. But so far, since I?d started touching myself, only a few weeks before that day, I?d been spared the wrath of the snakes.

If I could become an honest woman, a married woman, then all my sins would be washed away, I hoped. But, as Harold's clammy fingers squeezed mine, I had another thought.

I couldn?t bear the idea of saying yes to him. Not without having some idea what he'd be like in my bed. I needed to have some inkling of his body under the starched exterior walls he always kept erect. I wanted to know that he had something else that could become erect.

To my horror and his shock, I suddenly turned to him.

?Kiss me,? I begged, then I threw myself into his arms.

At first he appeared taken aback my request, but after extracting my arms from his side, and settling me back firmly in front of him, he nodded at me.

Pursing his lips obligingly, he closed his eyes and dropping his head back slightly. I was taller than him, so I bent my face down to find his mouth. But instead of giving him a chaste press against his closed lips like we usually did during our brief good night kisses, I did the unthinkable. I grabbed him tightly by the shoulders and smashed my mouth against his.

He stiffened beneath me?but not where I hoped.

Instead, he tried to pull his mouth and body away from me. But I held on tight. The Devil had taken hold of me, and I was hell bent to get what I wanted. I held his skinny arms firm against his sides and continued my attempts to extract from him a real kiss. I needed to taste his moisture, feel his heat, anything. I needed to know something of him before I committed to becoming his soul mate. I knew it was insane, but I couldn't stop myself...

After days of a strange sexual reawakening, Rachel Wainwright finally meets the reason for the wonderful change in her life. Althea Carpenter is a succubus who has been forced to take up residence in her mind. As she explains her history, and that of the succubi, Rachel is filled with sympathy for her plight, and agrees to help her regain her previous form.

Meanwhile, the spell of the succubus is having an effect on other members of Rachel's household. Goaded by urges he finds shameful and perverse, Alex finds love and acceptance in Maria's arms. And Sarah is being drawn to a new man in her life. Will they find happiness together? Or will their forbidden love doom them all? One thing is certain. When you look into the eyes of a succubus, you may see some Dark Reflections.

~~~~~ Excerpt ~~~~~

Rachel frowned. The fact that Maria and Jeremy and the kids weren't going to turn into her slaves was a relief. As was the fact that even a being as obviously sex-focused as Althea had a moral center, even if that center seemed to be no more than Thou shalt not hurt anyone you don't have to and Thou shalt not bang an unwilling partner.

?That's pretty much all it is,? Althea said cheerfully. ?But I don't take stuff that isn't mine, either. Most people are happy to give it to me anyway.? She smiled at Rachel's expression. ?Hello? I'm in your head, remember? I know what you're thinking.? Her smile grew dark, deep, and wicked. ?And such naughty thoughts you're having, Rachel. Jealous of Maria when I suggest setting her up with Alex? Who are you thinking should be in his bed, if not her??

She patted her cheek. ?Don't worry, I'm not judging you.? Her look drew inward and she rose from her seat on the grass, her body inhumanly graceful. ?But we're running out of time. It's almost morning. And holding together this illusion for you is a drain on my power. I need you to do something for me, my handmaiden.?

Rachel sighed and stood. ?What is it??

?My body is missing. I need you to find it.

?Now, Rachel, go with my blessing.? Stooping, she laid a gentle kiss on her brow. Rachel's skin burned at her touch. ?And wake up.?

*****

With a start, Rachel opened her eyes. She was lying on her back. The covers had been pulled down to lie in a crumpled heap at the foot of the bed. Morning sunlight poured through the open windows, and the cotton curtains swayed in a soft spring breeze. More importantly, her husband was kissing her. From the warm feeling in her chest and groin, he had been arousing her for some time.

?Well, this is a wonderful way to wake up,? she murmured softly. She smiled down at her long-time lover and best friend. ?Looking for someplace to hide your morning wood?? she teased.

Josh raised himself on his arms, moving forward so he could give her another good-morning kiss. ?Amazing thing, the male body,? he said, when their lips parted. ?No matter how many times you make love to a beautiful woman, it can't wait to do it again.?

She smiled at the compliment, looping her arms around his neck and drawing him down to her. How long had it been since they had spent a lazy morning in bed? Years, perhaps. For the first time in far too long, there were no urgent needs driving her. No cases to prepare for, no witnesses to depose, no briefs to write and file. If she and Josh wished, they could spend all day in bed.

~Ooh, that sounds nice. Yes, let's do that.~ Althea said.

Be quiet, you, Rachel said. Can't you leave me alone for a while?

~Actually, no. I can't. That's kind of the point of this whole exercise, isn't it? And just remember, the more you make love to Joshua, the quicker you will have the mental privacy you desire. Until then, get used to having company.~

She dragged her nails up his back, tickling her husband, watching through hooded lids as his back arched under her touch. God, I've missed this. The feeling of power, even when he's on top of me, seemingly in control.

~Being a woman is wonderful, is it not? At least, when you control your own destiny. This is why my mother spurned Adam and God. She would not allow herself to become subordinate. A tool to be used.~

Tell me, she asked, is this thing with our secretions...catching? If Jeremy makes love to another woman, would she be affected?

~What, are you worried about mankind catching a case of universal horniness, as if it were some sort of awesome venereal disease?~ Althea's voice was teasing. ~Fortunately, no. It would have happened way before now. We are a lusty bunch, although there aren't many of us. You don't have to be worried about being Patient Zero in the great Sex Plague of 2016.~

Q - Tell us a little bit about your Creatures of Darkness series.

Creatures of Darkness is set in an alternate future where vampires have openly admitted that they exist and the world is still trying to adjust. The series follows Coraline Conwell who finds herself dropped dead-center into the largest know vampire clan.

Each book can be read in any order and the reader can still follow along, but for the full experience, I suggest the following sequence:

- A Wicked Hunger
- A Wicked Night
- A Wicked Desire

Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?

Paranormal romance fans are ravenous, and my Creatures of Darkness series hits the spot. Readers have said my world building grabs their emotions from the start and doesn’t let go. It’s a series that draws you in and makes you long for more.

Readers who enjoy dark romance, alpha males, vampires, and intricate story telling will want to take this epic journey.

Q - What inspired the world you created in Creatures of Darkness, having it take place in the future?

I’ve always been interested in sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal, and mythology. I thought about the kind of romance novels I enjoy reading and what I liked about them: the idea that there could be a supernatural world within our own, veiled from sight.

I often imagine different futures and certain events might affect our world, and since I love the supernatural world, it only made sense to incorporate vampires. My futuristic world also contains witches, succubus, incubus, familiars, shifters, and many other creatures of the night.
