Wild Hunt, Book 1
Tainted from birth, Harley lives a life cloaked in darkness and temptation. She resists the lure of her evil legacy by holding the memory of her ghostly savior close. Every night without him is agony. She fantasizes about him and yearns for his body, but he’s not the protector or lover she’s envisioned. He’s a Hunter bred to eliminate her kind. He’s also her only hope of salvation.
Calan, the leader of the Wild Hunt, was created to protect mankind from the Unseelie Court. For a millennium, he’s sacrificed to ensure the horrid creatures remain in the Underworld, but his strength wanes. He must rely on his enemy’s daughter to save him, but he doesn’t expect the intensity of their lust or love. Her touch calms his wild nature and ignites his carnal desires. He’ll risk all to save her, but doing so forces him to make the ultimate sacrifice, one that’ll damn him to suffer forever in his own living hell.
A Romantica® Paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
Read an excerpt:
Calan heard the torch’s crackle minutes before the sinful fragrance of oranges and spice reached him.
He closed his eyes and breathed a sigh of relief. Several hours had passed since he’d spoken to her. He’d almost given up hope that she would come to him.
The click of her boots resounded in the hallway. He focused on the stairs leading into his cell. Anticipation held him taut. Nine years he’d waited for her. In that time, he’d experienced a range of emotions from disappointment to hatred, but he’d never let go of the longing. He’d left a piece of himself with her. He wanted it back. Whether he kept the woman he’d given it to remained undecided.
Dirty white shoes appeared on the first step. Shapely legs covered in a clingy black material showed next. Another step revealed flaring hips that gave way to a small waist he could probably span with one hand. The longing he’d always carried for her turned into lust, a burning desire he couldn’t deny.
His pent-up breath escaped in a shudder. A tremor shook the dainty hand curled at her hip. The response, along with the heavy evidence of her arousal in the air added to the sexual tension tightening his limbs.
Full breasts that strained the confines of her shirt rose and fell with her rapid breaths. He should coax her the remaining distance but couldn’t form words. The sight of her pebbled nipples pushing against her thin top shut his mind down. Getting her naked and filling her became his only thought.
She reached out, braced a hand against the wall and took the last step.
Her gaze latched onto his.
His heart stopped.
Dear gods, the fuzzy image he’d held of her didn’t do her justice. She was the most beautiful female he’d ever seen.
Interview with Author Nancy Corrigan:
1. Favorite place in the world? Anywhere my family is. As long as I have them, I’m happy. But I also think there are great things to enjoy in every area. I can’t say I’ve ever visited a city or section of the country I didn’t enjoy. I’m a believer in finding the good things and life. They’re all around us, but sometimes it takes a little searching.
2. The last book you’ve read? Dark Prince by Christine Feehan. I had read this book years ago but recently saw the extended version with an extra 100 pages of material. It was an instant one-click buy and I wasn’t sorry. Loved it.
3. Have you ever Googled yourself? Yes! It was fun to see all the interviews and reviews I’ve gotten. A little trip down memory lane But I also got a lot of hits for Nancy Kerrigan, the skater.
4. Favorite writing music or snack? I love writing to music and have tracks for mood, but when I simply need it as a background noise to drown out my kids, I listen to Apocalyptica. I need to find more instrumental music that’s not straight classical.
5. Do you ever run into someone who says “You write WHAT?” Of course, lol. I’ve gotten all the reactions from surprise to disgust. I’ve never worried about pleasing everyone so I usually don’t mind.
6. Morning person or night owl? I’m definitely a night owl. I never used to be but with kids and an active household, I usually don’t get much quiet time. Nights are when I make the most progress on my WIPs. I generally use the daytime hours to edit and plot.
7. If you were stranded on a deserted island, who would you want for company? My husband
8. What’s your favorite vacation spot? Philadelphia, PA. I love this city. The zoo (I love them!!), museums and sports are a big draw for me. I used to work close to there and lived in Delaware so I’m partial to it.
9. If I give you a time machine, what time period and in what place would you travel to? Medieval Europe. Ireland especially. I love history and mythology. It would be so much fun to get a feel for the culture too.
10. If you could visit any place in the world or a place created by a book, where would you visit? Hogwarts from the Harry Potter books! I adored these books and love the idea of magic. I think it would be so much fun to play in a magical world.
11. If you could write outside your genre what would that be? Sci-fi. Maybe someday I’ll add a sci-fi romance to my list of books.
12. If you could write with anyone who would that be and why? Anne Rice. Love, love her books. I would learn so much from her.
13. What are your thoughts on ebooks? (i.e. love them, hate them, wave of the future) I love them. I have tons and tons of paperbacks but time takes its toll on them. Nothing is worse than pulling out a book and smelling that dank moldy scent and trying to see the print on yellowing pages. Hardcovers are wonderful, but they’re too expensive for the serious reader. They also take up way too much space. Did I mention I have tons of books?
Fantastic, strong story about the Fae courts. Chemistry was awesome and super hot. I love Fae stories, especially this one, I like the lore she created around the The Wild Hunt.
She resides in Pennsylvania with her husband and three children. When she’s not weaving sizzling fantasies, she works as a chemist in a pharmaceutical lab.
