Story Excerpt

"You can't be serious?"

"Amerasha needs stability," King Alenzo Coranthaos reminded his only son. "Our future lies with you!"

Michel Alexandros Coranthaos, heir to the island nation of Coranthis, turned from the castle window to look intently at his father. He tried to keep his voice even and free of the irritation that was coursing through his veins like a living thing. "Father, you are in the prime of your years, hardly on the verge of dying of old age. I fail to see why you think it so necessary for me to marry and produce offspring!"

His father's shoulders stiffened at the words and Michel sighed inwardly. He schooled his expression to careful neutrality and waited for the rebuke he sensed was coming to him.

"Why do you think it so necessary to remain unmarried, Michel?"

Startled by the calm question, he took a few moments to seriously consider the question. He could be flippant about it, or he could for a change be honest. The expectancy in his father's eyes decided him and he crossed the distance between them.

"I don't think it's unnecessary, father. I simply choose to wait for a woman I can love and respect, someone I can share my life with, as you did with mother."

Alenzo looked at his son, and nodded, expression grave.

"I wish to see you happy, Michel." He held up a hand to ward off the reply Michel was about to make and smiled, albeit with sadness. "You have played the carefree prince for many years, but there is an emptiness in your life that needs to be filled. Tell me this is not truth? If you can?"

Michel stared, genuinely surprised by the turn of the conversation. He'd answered his father's summons with the expectation of another of their increasingly frequent arguments. Instead, he was being accorded a direct honesty that had once been the core of their relationship, but had often been lacking in years. He sat down and for a few moments he remained silent, then he leaned back in the comfortable chair and nodded.

"There is no sense denying what you say, father. I am not a happy man," he admitted, then laughed with real bitterness. "I don't lack for attention, but it feels very hollow."

Alenzo nodded. "It's time to bring a bride to you, my son."

Michel frowned, and waited for the trap to spring. He should have recognized the change in tactics, his father was a supreme manipulator.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed it as a free book March 7, 2012
By Stacey
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a very cute story, but I got it as a freebie. In my opinion, this is a very short story not a book, so if I were paying for it I probably would be disappointed. But it was free and cute. I'm not sure if I would consider it erotica, there were a couple of hot scenes but no hotter than your average spicy romance novel.

From the reviews I was expecting a well-written fairytale erotica with well fleshed-out characters, but instead I got something that felt like the author just typed it out in a hurry in just a couple of hours. There was no character development, no continuity, & no erotica that wouldn't be found in a regular romance novel. I never got a sense of any of the characters' personalities except for the caricature that was the evil stepmother. It often felt like the author never double checked what she was writing to check for continuity. For instance near the end of the book the hero & heroine were behind a locked door but then someone just barges in a few minutes later. The one & only love scene also felt rushed & inconsistent. I guess I would've liked more detail & length, especially since this wasn't a freebie. This book should've been $0.99, not $2.99! I really feel let down for the price I paid, even thought its not that much.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun little shorty... October 9, 2012

That was a fun read. Covers all the bases of a short, great detail to pull you in. Just enough story and erotica, it was a great appetiser.

2.0 out of 5 stars okay if you are sixteen and older March 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's an okay book but if you're under sixteen you should not read it. It deals with sexy situations and I know girls have sex but you really shouldn't read about it. It's a nice short read for older readers.

More About the Author

Canadian born and bred, and a lifelong dreamer, I began writing at an early age and can't recall a time when I wasn't creating in some artistic form. My life has had several on-going love affairs that shape much of what I write, the American West, Victorian England, cowboys, a passion for pirates, Greek Gods, and Ancient Egypt. The other endless love affair in my life is Italia and all its magic, beauty, and dazzling culture. That passion spills into all aspects of my life.

My first major fantasy novel is AS FATE DECREES. (Available in bookstores everywhere, and on Amazon's international sites.) The novel relies heavily on Greek Mythology, and is set in Ancient Greece and modern Athens. If you enjoy a tale of Gods, Destiny, and the battles of an Eternal Champion, this is the book for you! (Less than six months after publication, it was a finalist for the 2008 Aurora Award.) Not surprisingly, there's a touch of romance throughout, of course! A visit to my website will show the diversity of what is currently available, and the mixing of genres and styles that will be employed in many up-coming projects as well.
