Sunday Shout-out to J. C. Seal!

🔥 Sunday Shout-out to @j.c.seal and her review of my book Wake of Sins (The Light of Darkness, book #5) ðŸ”¥

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Five twinkling Stars for Wake of Sins by Catrin Russell

There is even more going on in this fifth fabulous book of the Light of Darkness series. This time, the characters will go on their missions or quests in new and unexpected teams. I can only say, I loved the resulting dynamics ðŸ˜

❗️Readers not familiar with the first four books of the series, beware of spoilers❗️ .

🏠 Anaya and Samael are stuck at home. Danger lurks behind every corner, and Anaya being pregnant and the Obsidian Trials coming up, their presence is required at the village. But are they really safe, inside these walls, or outside?
🥰 Again, the steadfast love these two have grown into runs throughout the whole book. It left a smile on my face and a warmth in my heart that spends hope for battles yet to come.

🎼 Nia’s former profession as an entertainer and the wish to save her lover from certain death sends her on a secret mission. With only Benjamin as companion, she infiltrates the Royal Court to look for evidence leading to the instigators of the eradication of several Demon villages.
💞 Will Nia be able to find the clue to solve the mystery and save Gus, or has Kaedin sent this unlikely combination of teammates to a certain death?

💪Lee gets tutored by Samael for the Obsidian Trials. It’s a challenging task for both of them. Clashes between the inexperienced Lee and the impatient Samael are inevitable ðŸ’¥
🤣 I thoroughly enjoyed these two. The resulting banter is hilarious, and I loved that Samael warmed toward Lee, beginning to treat him like a son.

🔥Things get heated between Lilith and Kaedin. The former Knight won’t concede to her wishes, as duty and feelings fight a war within, while Lilith fights her own battles with guilt and memories of her lost love.
❤️‍🔥 Once again, this relationship had me laugh, cry and smirk about some peculiar locations to conduct their courting. Will they manage to settle their quarrels, maybe even set out to a HEA, or will this budding love be ripped apart by much bigger events?

😱 Since capturing the Unn, Edric’s nightmares about his childhood have increased. To find closure regarding his past, he decides to interrogate Gus. But will the former mercenary talk with him, and does he have the information Edric so desperately longs for?
🦑 What starts as a simple interrogation ends in a journey into the past, as Gus and Edric set out on a quest that reveals hidden, but also extremely dangerous secrets. Will they survive the encounter, or perish far away from their loved ones?

Once again, Catrin Russell managed to draw me into the story, to love and fear, fight and rant with the characters ðŸ¥°ðŸ’žðŸ˜” – J. C. Seal

Tuesday Teaser: A Kiss to Keep Warm

🔥 Tuesday Teaser ðŸ”¥

🖤 Here’s a snippet from my current WIP, The Condemned. It’s part of my unedited first draft ðŸ–¤

A pleasurable heat spawned in Gharrus’ belly at her touch, fluttering more and more with each passing second. The pain of knowing he would soon lose her somehow subsided in the moment, making way for sensations he had not experienced in decades. He could barely contain a hungry growl, suppressing the sound in the hopes he might not crumble before her. His body reacted without any concerns about their closeness, and he prayed she wouldn’t press herself against him entirely, for he could never mask his now blatant arousal. Regardless of where his mind drifted, Gharrus only wanted more. To taste her, challenge her to a dance of tongues, or better—to touch her, feel every curve and hollow of her body, his fingers aching with need. But he couldn’t make himself act, cowering under the weight of his regrets. He tried to return to the present, forcing such thoughts aside, and he soon melted against her sweet lips, returning the kiss with subdued eagerness.

🖤 The Condemned – a stand-alone Romantic Fantasy novel, perfect for readers who enjoy dark and gritty fantasy tales with romance and explicit steam ðŸ–¤
