Branded (Demon's Mark 1): Dark Paranormal Erotica by [Ash, Nora]

Submit to Your Demons.

Branded by Nora Ash

Being different was never easy.

After 27 years of living as a social outcast, Selma has become quite accustomed to the isolation and lack of dreams for a happy future. What she’s never gotten used to are the demons she sees; the dangerous creatures masquerading as humans, blending into the regular world as if they belong.

No one else ever sees what she does—not when she was younger, and not the night she is attacked by horned monsters, losing the precarious grasp on her already damaged mind.

Trapped in a mental hospital, Selma’s only hope of gaining back her life is a young psychiatrist with smoldering looks and some very disturbing ideas for her treatments. If she is ever to see the outside world again, she must submit to him.
But he is one of them—and his intentions are far more devious than they appear.

First installment in the 6-part serial Demon’s Mark.

Contains darkly erotic scenes and demons who like to play rough. Not for the faint-hearted.

Demon’s Mark Complete Series:

#1 Branded
#2 Tricked
#3 Hunted
#4 Captured
#5 Claimed
#6 Cherished

Day Four: North to Alaska

Posted on Updated on

book title

 

Good morning.  Today I am headed up through the pass at Tracy Arm Fjord. The first time I came through the pass ten years ago, I was yelling Iceberg Dead ahead!  You see what’s left of that Iceberg now?  Yeah people who say global warming is not real can kiss my right boodie cheek. 

So much for the iceberg,  It looks alike a pile of blue slush. 

Our first time on the glaciers we had bottles of water that we filled on the spot with those blue waters.  When we held up the bottle the water was still blue until the sun hit it and made it clear.  It was so beautiful.

It’s still beautiful to me.

Here comes my shameless plug.

North to Alaska

Yeah, come get some.

Amanda Perkins boarded a train, then a plane headed north to Alaska to marry one man and ended up snowbound with another. 

Riley Bishop knew the moment he saw her on the sidewalk in his small town that he wanted her for himself. 

Through an odd turn of events, both Amanda and Riley ended up getting exactly what they wanted.
