I frighten very easy and I can’t handle many of the scary movies that are featured around Halloween. Well…I can’t watch them at night, when I’m sitting alone in the dark.
I CAN (often, not always) watch these movies during the day, when the sun is shining and all the corners of the room are lit and I have the Dear Wonderful Hubby sitting beside me, protecting me. (Though, even then, I’ll watch the scary movies between my splayed fingers.)
The dark, for me, makes everything scarier. I don’t know what is waiting for me in the shadows. I can’t easily avoid the terrors, can’t identify them.
Not knowing means I use my imagination to fill in the gaps and I have a VERY creative and sometimes horrific muse. These imaginings are tailored to my unique fears. I know what scares me the most and I freak myself out. (sheepish grin)
When I considered titles for Kralj and Dita’s romance, I wanted to warn reading buddies that this wasn’t a light, sweet romance. Kralj truly IS a monster and Dita is his match.
As Kralj shares…
“I’m the beast hunting you in your nightmares, the fear you feel in the dark, the prickling over the back of your neck when you think you’re alone.”
Including ‘Dark’ in the title tells us to be cautious. This isn’t a scary romance. No one will jump out at us while we’re reading it. (grins) Though that WOULD be a super cool feature.
I’m told reading buddies think about the story long after they’re finished reading it but I doubt it will give anyone nightmares.
We SHOULD be afraid of the dark, however. Kralj, the hero of Dark Thoughts, might be lurking there, watching, waiting, knowing. He isn’t a being anyone disrespects.
And he might not be alone.
What is the scariest movie you’ve ever watched?
Can love redeem a monster?
The Refuge is home to some of the most violent beings in the universe. Kralj, its leader, reigns over the remote outpost with terrifying ease, ruthlessly squashing any rumors of rebellion, killing anyone who breaks his rules. Primitive, deadly, powerful, he’s a monster, scarred both on his face and his soul. He has never met a being he couldn’t control.
Until he meets her.
Dita has one mission—to kill the three targets claiming sanctuary within the Refuge. Or so she claims. For the first time in his long lifespan, Kralj isn’t certain of another being’s intentions. The tiny assassin is immune to his powers, her thoughts unreadable. He can’t predict her movements, can’t control her, can’t stop wanting her.
Dita is rare, as unique as he is, and, to keep the residents of the Refuge safe, Kralj will have to kill her. But first, he’ll touch her, taste her, show her how passionate the beast inside him can be.
Dark Thoughts is a STAND-ALONE SciFi Romance.
The hero might be tall, dark, and scarred but don’t be fooled by his appearance.
He’s truly a monster.
