Magic March

Ah spring. Mud, mud everywhere. But also, BOOKS! As a celebration for the much anticipated spring season, I’m featuring books containing elements of magic in them. Enjoy this selection of books for Magic March!

The Poker Kingdom
Epic Fantasy

Forget about games. There was a time when Poker was a kingdom, chosen by the Gods to shelter the four elements. The protection of each Element was assigned to a Guardian from each of the Domains of the kingdom: Hearts, Clubs, Spades and Diamonds.

The continuous conflicts arisen from the attempts to take over the Elements sunk the kingdom into the strictest government under the Council supervision and the Guardians identity was forced to be kept a secret. Poker remained in a masked peace for a long time until an incident in the Confines, a place for criminals and other who dared to break the rules, will threaten the balance of the universe and the future of the kingdom. Atenea, the warrior leader of the army of Spades, will be the one in charge to prevent the chaos from spreading along the Domains as she is forced to face her own past demons and question her loyalty to the kingdom and its rules. But she won’t be alone in her quest…

A Gift for the King

For an ordinary twenty-two-year-old college student like Lana, the idea of being kidnapped from Earth by aliens would have sounded absurd… until the day it happened. As Lana quickly discovers, however, her abduction is not even the most alarming part of her situation. To her shock, she soon learns that she is to be stripped naked and sold as a slave to the highest bidder.

When she resists the intimate, deeply humiliating procedures necessary to prepare her for the auction, Lana merely earns herself a long, hard, bare-bottom spanking, but her passionate defiance catches the attention of her captor and results in a change in his plans. Instead of being sold, Lana will be given as a gift to Dante, the region’s powerful king.

Dante makes it abundantly clear that he will expect absolute obedience and that any misbehavior will be dealt with sternly, yet in spite of everything Lana cannot help feeling safe and cared for in the handsome ruler’s arms. Even when Dante’s punishments leave her with flaming cheeks and a bottom sore from more than just a spanking, it only sets her desire for him burning hotter.

But though Dante’s dominant lovemaking brings her pleasure beyond anything she ever imagined, Lana fears she may never be more than a plaything to him, and her fears soon lead to rebellion. When an escape attempt goes awry and she is captured by Dante’s most dangerous enemy, she is left to wonder if her master cares for her enough to come to her rescue. Will the king risk everything to reclaim what is his, and if he does bring his human girl home safe and sound, can he find a way to teach Lana once and for all that she belongs to him completely?
