Once upon a time, a thief stole me in the middle of the night. He took what he wanted, gave me an illusion, and ripped it all away to claim his ultimate trophy.

I suck in a breath. His back sports a new tattoo. An orange tree runs from his flank up to his shoulder. The roots branch out over his lower back and side. It’s so well drawn it looks as if the network of roots are grafted with his skin. A branch with orange blossoms runs up to his shoulder. The petals curl over the arch, only the tips of a flower visible on the curve as he faces me again.
Why did he get it? The answer is obvious. The truth stares me in the face. He never said it, but he declared it in permanent ink on his skin next to the values that govern his behavior, his life.
“It’s not some kind of gravestone,” he says in a quiet voice.
My gaze slips to the pendant on the leather string that hangs in the center of his breastbone. “What’s not a gravestone?” I ask, pretending not to know what he’s talking about. It’s too deep, too personal. We don’t share that kind of intimacy any longer.
“The tattoo. It doesn’t symbolize grief.”
I can’t help from asking, “What does it symbolize?”
“Love.” His gaze intensifies. “The kind that gets under your skin.”

COVER REVEAL: Gothikana by RuNyx


Release Date:May 31
Cover by Nelly R.
Grab for the special pre-order price of $2.99!

An unusual girl. An enigmatic man. An ancient castle. What could go wrong?

An outcast her entire life, Corvina Clemm is left adrift after losing her mother. When she receives the admission letter from the mysterious University of Verenmore, she accepts it as a sign from the universe. The last thing she expects though is an olden, secluded castle on top of a mountain riddled with secrets, deceit, and death.

An enigma his entire life, Vad Deverell likes being a closed book but knowing exactly everything that happens in the university. A part-time professor working on his thesis, Vad has been around long enough to know the dangers the castle possesses. And he knows the moment his paths cross with Corvina, she's dangerous to everything that he is.

They shouldn't have caught each other's eye. They cannot be. But a chill-inducing century-old mystery forces them to collide. People have disappeared every five years for over a hundred years, and Corvina is getting clues to unraveling it all, and Vad needs to keep an eye on her.

And so begins a tale of the mystique, the morbid, the macabre, and a deep love that blossoms in the unlikeliest of places.

Goodreads Link:

I'm an ancient soul trapped in a 26-year-old body. The phoenix is my spirit animal, books are my lifesavers, and words are my lifeblood.
I was born with stories in my veins. As far back as my memories go, story-telling has been a part of my life.
I stumbled upon writing accidentally while going through severe depression. Writing became not just a means of expressing but also catharsis. Every single character and every single story became precious. It taught me to love, to live, and most importantly, it made me discover who I was.

Snippet from Once a Myth:
Her bare feet sank into the crystal sugar sand. Her breakable fingers fluttered once by her sides as if she fought the urge to curl them. Her head tilted, cascading incredibly long, tangled hair over her shoulder.
Knotty and dull, the length was a distraction from the otherwise pleasing features of her face. Pixy chin, high cheekbones, smoky grey eyes, and eyebrows that slashed across her smooth brow with temper and seething refinement.
F*ck, the price I could charge for a night with her.
Even straight out of her abduction, with shadows smudging her beauty from travel, rope burn around her neck, tattooed barcode on her wrist, and bruises marking her otherwise perfect skin from her punishments, she was a f*cking natural-born immortal.
Raw and untouched, she bristled with injustice and courage. She could be Artemis’s reincarnation or perhaps Aphrodite’s twin.
She didn’t need to be turned into a goddess, she was one.
One I very much wanted to yank from the stars and slander with every debasing, demeaning, and downright disgusting act I could think of.
The kick of interest turned into a lick of lust.
I’d never sampled my stock. I didn’t play with the toys my customers paid for.
But her…f*ck, I was tempted.
Sorely, deliciously tempted.
Our eyes locked, grey to blue.
My island, my pride and joy and deliverer of fantasies, vanished behind a suffocating void. There was no parrot chatter. No jasmine breeze. No lapping waves.
There was just her.
The dark-haired, coldly judging, queenly, impenetrable girl.
My lust thickened, coiling from my belly to my c*ck.
I curled my hands, fighting my body’s reaction to swell, to heat, to crave this innocent consort.
And then, she moved of her own accord.
Not away from me, but toward me.
My legs locked, my body turned rigid, my heartbeat increased into a steady pound of hunger.
She stopped with a metre between us. The grey jumper she wore hid her body, but it couldn’t belie that beneath the fabric was yet more wonder. Shapes and sinew. Curves and caverns. A girl who was grace and elegance.
“Are you him?”
F*ck, her voice.
Low pitched but soft. Husky but feminine.
Sh*t, her lips.
Naturally peach with a stung bottom fullness and shapely bow. Everything about her mouth was made for sucking a man’s c*ck and granting him every pleasure he requested.
My suit became tight.
My blood hissed into my trousers, adding pressure to my throbbing erection, reminding me it’d been a f*cking age since I’d stuck that part of myself into another. Since I’d stopped indulging in my own fantasies to focus on delivering them to others. Since I’d become disillusioned with the idea of f*cking an immortal. Since my illusions had skipped the binds of reality and ensured sex with normal could never compete with the soul-quaking f*cking of a siren or angel.
Well, hadn’t my dreams just been f*cking granted?
What was she? Who was she? Where in the g*dd*mn hell had she come from?
Those traffickers deserved a raise. A bonus. A place in eternal paradise for delivering her.
She’s mine.
Bought and paid for.
I swallowed hard, battling the undeniable black satisfaction that gave me.
I didn’t have to rent her for a night.
I didn’t have to give her back after I came deep inside her.
She was mine.
All mine.
