Erica Hayes's Shadowfae is Going to be HAWT!

I read the free short story Hellcursed, which also includes chapter one of Shadowfae by Erica Hayes yesterday and I was blown away by it! Oh.My.Gawd!! From what I read, this new fantastical world created by Erica is going to be sensual, erotic, dark and heart-pounding exciting, that's going to blur the line between good and bad. *shivers* The good kind.

If you haven't read Hellcursed, don't take my word for it, go check it out for yourself.

Shadowfae is the debut urban fantasy novel in the Shadowfae Chronicles by Erica Hayes, that will release on October 13, 2009.

Synopsis for Hellcursed, prequel to Shadowfae, from Erica's website:
Tricked.
Cursed.
Damned.
It's 1863, and headstrong ex-convent girl Jade has renounced the church that tried to curb her independence. Now, she travels the world seeking adventure and the pleasures of forbidden ritual.

But she's tricked by a treacherous sorcerer, and now she's forced into a darker kind of slavery. She's a succubus, with a powerful demon lord her master for a thousand years.

At least, that's what he thinks. Jade accepts no man's domination, least of all a demon's. She's determined to thwart her fate.

But she's yet to discover the true meaning of demon thrall...
Synopsis for Shadowfae, from Erica's website:
Steal souls.
Live in hell.
Never die.
In a city infested with psychotic fairies and run by sadistic vampire mafiosi, life as a soul-sucking succubus rarely involves lacy lingerie, hot guys or great sex.

Enslaved by a demon lord, Jade must spend her nights seducing vampire gangsters and shapeshifting thugs. After two hundred years as a succubus, she burns for freedom and longs to escape her brutal life as a trophy girl for hell's minions.

Then, she meets Rajah, an incubus who touches her heart and intoxicates her senses. Rajah shares the same bleak fate as she, and yearns just as desperately for freedom. But the only way for Jade to break her bonds is to betray Rajah—and doom the only man she's ever loved to a lifetime in hell.

Oh Donna, you wicked wicked very bad, wicked girl you!!!! I read about this book a few weeks ago and as I wanted to order it I noticed it was TPB, which costs 12 euro's, which is a lot for a and I let my sensible side rule. So I did not investigate further but now that I am reading your post sensible side has left the building; it went so fast I could not even grasp it to hold on to the sense. This book is so up my alley that i just needed to click, really, the compulsion was not to be denied.

So thanks Donna *wink* Addiction is purring as we speak...

Hm, I do wonder, I am rather intrigued, but no I shouldn't. I am trying to only add pure fantasy to me TBR list now, but perhaps in the future ;)

Leontine - just the short short and chapter one has gotten me hooked!!! I just hope the rest of the book pans out. I love TPBs but they are pricey so I understand. But this book just begs to be bought. :)
