Elisabeth Naughton is my first author in my author profiles. Being such an avid reader I had large pool in which I could pick. I picked her because I adore her books but also she has a brand new novella coming out this month and her next book in the Eternal Guardians series will be out in November.
Let me give you a little background on Elisabeth Naughton. Ms. Naughton wasn’t always a writer. She was originally a Junior High Science teacher. When I found this out I was very intrigued with her. Being a certified High School teacher myself I wondered how you go from teaching science to writing Paranormal Romance. I honestly don’t know how she did the jump, but if she was as good a teacher as she is a writer I would have loved to have her as a teacher.
I was first introduced to Ms. Naughton’s books when her book Marked was a free book through Barnes and Noble. I sat and read Marked in one day. I immediately got drawn into the world of the Argonauts, the evil Daemons and the manipulative Olympian Gods. Her books are inventive and put a new spin on a sometimes redundant genre of Paranormal Romance. Ms. Naughton’s writing is clear, concise and descriptive. You get drawn into her world and you can become breathless waiting for what will come next. Her next Eternal Guardian‘s book will be Enslaved coming out in November.
Her newest novella Bound to Seduction sounds very exciting. I hope she will make this into a new series. Here is the description from her website about :
“Sentenced as a pleasure slave, Djinn Prince Tariq of the Marid tribe has but one duty: travel into the human realm and corrupt souls by granting wishes to the women who possess the Firebrand opal, a gemstone of magical power. Ten years of imprisonment have left Tariq bitter, but to save his brothers’ lives, he’ll submit to his endless personal hell, even if it means giving up his own hope for freedom.
When Mira Dawson obtains the Firebrand opal, she’s sure the rumors about its magical qualities must be fiction. Until, that is, she touches the stone and a dark and dangerous warrior appears in her living room, offering to pleasure her beyond her wildest dreams. At first Mira thinks she’s hallucinating, but soon she finds herself drawn not only to Tariq’s touch, but to the anguish lurking in his eyes.
Mira begins asking questions about who Tariq is and what he wants, and then she shocks him with her wish: She doesn’t want to receive pleasure. She wants to learn to give it. What starts out as duty turns into a lesson in seduction that tests all Tariq’s beliefs and taps into a corner of himself he never knew existed. Soon, he realizes he can’t be the one to corrupt Mira’s soul. Not even if doing so means freedom. But his defiance awakens an ancient evil, and as darkness gathers its growing powers, Tariq will have to make the ultimate choice—to save himself, his brothers, or the woman whose only wish was as selfless as her heart.”
