“We caught a Beast! A real live poxy Beast!” Bastards. Calling us beasts while they cheat, steal, and lie. I got kicked in the ribs, a whip laid about my shoulders, and all the time they were screaming. “Hang him!” “Beat him!” “Kill the Beast!” Then I saw her. She was standing there, staring right into my eyes. For a moment, I thought I was looking at a Valkyrie, one of Valhalla’s shield maidens. She had hair the colour of ice, and eyes as blue as the sky. Tall, willowy, and silent, she looked unworldly. There was a wolf at her side, too. I blinked, expecting her to vanish, but it wasn’t a vision. She was real. The knowledge hit me with a punch that sucked the breath out of me. She was one of us, a Skraeling of Thule. She leaned on the wolf, controlling it with a touch of her hand. “Lady Freyja always advises counsel before action.” A Skraeling woman who invoked our goddess yet who was a traitor. I was filled with sudden hate, poisoned by the thought of one of our own people contaminated by foul betrayal. If the will were a weapon, she would have fallen on the spot. Instead, the world blurred again. I think I passed out for a few moments because when I opened my eyes, he was there. The Patriarch. A cheat, a liar and all-round scum bucket He certainly hates us Skraeling. “Glorious Ullr will bring us wise counsel. And tomorrow we will flog the Beast to cleanse him of his sins, and then we will burn him alive!”
He’s a vicious Beast, violent and dangerous. Bliss knows she ought to walk away. After all, she has a dark and dangerous secret to preserve. When she can’t leave him to burn, her rescue tumbles them both into danger, adventure and romance.
If you love romance with an edge, you're in the right place.
With AJ Adams you enter into the violent world of the Cartel, Camorra, Belial's MC and Prydain where death and romance go hand in hand.
All my novels are all self-standing and although some feature the same families, you need not read them all - although it would be awesome if you did!
If you aren't sure about how dark you like your stories, start with Dirty Dealings or The Beast and The Sibyl.
Of all the titles so far, Beast is the darkest.
I also write sweet romance under my In Real Life name, Ellen Whyte.
