She needs his protection. He needs her forever.

After years of captivity by man who cruelly exploits her mysterious powers, Analia makes a desperate and dangerous bid to escape. Risking her life, she stows away on a passing merchant ship, which could lead to freedom…or a life worse than death.

Staying hidden from the fearsome demon captain and his crew proves impossible, however. And when Analia is discovered, she must keep her secrets close while contending with her freshly awakened desire for the brutally handsome demon. But those whom she escaped want her back and will stop at nothing to reclaim her.

Interview with the Author 

Q - Tell us a little bit about your Shadow Quest series.
 
Shadow Quest is a unique mix of genres that incorporates paranormal romance, fantasy, and science fiction romance. My characters are based loosely in mythology with some kick-but mythical creatures such as demons, witches, and fey-like beings. Since they're all from different planets,I suppose they'd be considered aliens.
 
Each book focuses on the relationship of the hero and heroine and the trust they must build with one another. The connection they form is a slow-burn at first, and then turns combustible. I play with the fated mates theme, but the conflict and mistrust keeps things interesting. Ultimately love wins out in the end, if they can survive the journey.
 
Q - What order should I read the books in?
 
Each book can be read in any order and the reader can still follow along, but for the full experience, I suggest the following sequence:
 
- Demon Possession
- Demon Slave
- Demon Retribution
- Demon Untamed
 
Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?
 
Paranormal fans are ravenous, and my Shadow Quest series hits the spot. Readers have told me they have read Demon Possession several times over and still enjoy it. It's a series that draws you in and makes you long for more.
 
Readers who enjoy romance, alpha males, and action will want to take this epic journey.
 
Q - What inspired the world you created in Demon Possession, having it take place in space and different planets?
 
I've always been interested in sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal,and mythology. I thought about the kind of romance novels I enjoy reading and what I liked about them: the idea that there could be a supernatural world within our own, veiled from sight.
 
Then I thought, "What if all these creatures were really from different planets?" After that, the world building came naturally.

Analia’s life was brutal, torturous, and horrific. It was worth risking death to escape her captors and if she could just make it off the ship and onto a merchant vessel, she could have her freedom ... Read full review

For an author's first book and a first in a series, I really enjoyed it. It made me think of Star Trek and Firefly with a hot twist. Analia has been a slave on a merchant ship for as long as she can ... Read full review
