About this ebook

Unleash your imagination and embark on an epic journey into a world where destiny intertwines with desire in this enthralling adult romantic science fantasy novel that will leave you breathless and yearning for more.

For a relic of war, death is my inevitable release.

Most people can’t kill without regret, but I don’t have that luxury. I am a tank-created nu-human, and my sole purpose hinges on the whims of my tyrannical maniac creator. Town annihilations to political assassinations—I never disobey.

Until I want more.

When I escape beyond the realm of my former master, my only goal is safety—freedom—a life I always wanted. I should have known my creator would send deadly pursuers. He wants to remind me of what I’m never fated to have.


Then destiny tempts me with the unexpected.

When a dragon—a creature said to be long extinct—offers me a chance at true freedom from my former master’s control, I don't know what to believe. In my line of work, trust kills. But something is different about this creature....

With nothing to lose, I agree to his terms. Now, I wait. Will he give me the freedom I crave, or did I seal my fate?


DESTINY is the first book in the Experimental Heart epic romantic urban-science fantasy series. If you love fantasy mixed with science fiction, strong willed heroines overcoming the torment of their past, fate vs choice, and a dash of slow burn romance, dive into the world of Lumaraeon today!

I wanted to read this, but the stilted, formal, language and excess words drove me off. A large number of short sentences damage the cadence of the story and it relies too heavily on description which doesn't add anything to the story. It might have been better if it were about half the length but I couldn't read far enough to judge the story itself.
