Forsaken Paradise by Elise Whyles - Book Spot Light

About the Book:

What could be more dangerous than loving a rogue?



Condemned as a rogue and punished by his master, Angrail, one of the Seven Paradise Walkers, has wandered mortal and immortal worlds for centuries. He's determined to find those responsible for killing an innocent woman and the child she carried, no matter the cost to himself.



Ephynia, a demoness with scars, has spent a lifetime serving Nerafail, Lord of the Dead. When she unwittingly stumbles upon the one being who can end her loneliness, the battered Angrail, her life changes forever.



Unknown to Angrail and Ephynia, evil lurks in the shadows. There are those who believe Angrail and Ephynia are the key to preventing a coming war—a war that they need to take place—and they seek to end their lives.



Can Angrail find love in the arms of a demoness at war with herself? Or will the secrets hidden within the bowels of their worlds destroy them before they can find peace?

Read an Excerpt:

Angrail moaned, agony flowing like water through him. He could
taste the souls wanting peace, hear their weak cries, but could do nothing.
Shifting, the wounds he'd suffered screamed in protest, pain lacing through his
muscles.





Inhaling a sharp breath, he froze. The sweetness of a
strange smell stirred something within him. Blood, bone, life clung to whoever
hovered nearby. The smell of smoke, of flame swirled in the air as well.
Cracking his eyes open, he blinked to clear his vision and tensed.



Bronze skin glistening in the fading sunlight, a female
stood at the mouth of the cave. Her arms were crossed beneath her breasts, a
sword hanging at her hip. Multi-toned hair was slicked back, revealing the
ornately decorated curve of a horn. She was a huntress. But why would she have
removed him from the battlefield? None of her kind, or his own brethren, were
allowed to touch him. Nerafail's generosity had bound them to watch him suffer.
Aye, the old lord was a fool, one he had no desire to seek forgiveness from.



"What…" Licking his dry lips, he struggled into a
sitting position. His head swam with the effort, his stomach revolting at the
pain swarming him. "What do you have need of me?"



"You are awake. Excellent." The demoness turned,
her eyes narrowed on him. "What do I have need with you? I should hope you
have such an answer for me, guide."



Coughing, Angrail leaned his head against the stone, his
chest tight, burning with the need for oxygen. Being trapped within the mortal
frame had its drawbacks. "Who are you? Nerafail would not permit you to
aid me."



"Aid? I have no desire to aid you. I wish to know why
you called me back from my task." She stalked to him, her hips swaying.
Hunkering down by his feet, she tilted her head. "I was sent forth to
retrieve a soul and had nearly done that when I felt you. You kept me from leaving
the field, I would know why."



"Go to Hardress." Angrail winced. "Back to
your revelry and—"



"I would go home, but you refuse to release your
bonds. You will tell me what I wish to know." She slammed him into the
rock, her fingers tightening around his throat.



With her touch, Angrail's body arched, gasping for air as
pain and heat washed over him in waves. He could feel her grip tightening, feel
the force of her anger, and felt his own stirring.



He blinked, the images dancing in his mind ones he'd never
seen before. Images that instinct told him were important.



Flames danced around them. Sweat beaded and rolled
between her breasts. Her tongue licked at his skin, and her horns flared with
passion. His shaft throbbed in yearning at her body undulating, her hips
gyrating slowly. To and fro, rolling, pitching, she remained in constant
motion, her hands trailing over her flesh, cupping her breasts. Her fingers
plucked at her nipples, pulling on them until they stood hard, pointing toward
him. She shuddered, her hand drifting down her abdomen, slipping beneath the
braided belt of her skirt.



Heady, rich, the scent of her essence filled the air.
Sweeter than honey, it teased along his shaft, filling him with want. Faint,
the echo of her sliding her fingers through the folds between her legs grew in
volume with each slow roll of her hips.



He pushed the images out of his head and shoved her arm
aside, his eyes narrowing. "Careful, huntress, you're showing
weakness."



"Tell me and I'll ease your misery."


"You can't."
