"Lady's Destiny" [Destiny Series, Book 1] by A. R. Von

Author's Book Description : When dreams haunt you in the most delicious ways and fate pulls you into destiny’s path, what can be done other than to accept and submit to it.

Can Iria truly get what she’s always dreamed of or will it always just remain a memory? Being a rare creature such as her with exceptional beauty and rarity of existence should be enough. Though, all she wants is her desire, her destiny...

To be with a man—one man.

Are these dreams she’s having real? Could she really take on human form and become a Lady to be with the man she craves?

Dezso discovers a magical creature—a being of incredible light and peace. He is drawn to it again and again, and his feelings grow with every encounter. He carries a dark secret that he wishes never existed. The only thing that truly brings light upon his existence is the beauty that warms his heart but seems to only exist in his head—with dreams and visions of a magical woman, full of heartwarming light.

Will he ever know true love and happiness? Will he ever be able to lighten the weight and share his dark secret with another...?

Darkness is growing stronger, weakening the light and killing off what makes the world a beautiful place to live in. Enter a world of fantasy and dreams, passions and temptations. A world where dragons, unicorns, magic and mermaids really do exist. A world where love WILL conquer all!

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! This is a unique mystical novel about good vs. evil, light vs. darkness, and those who hope to restore/keep the balance. At the forefront in the fight, you have Dezso and Iria ....

Dezso is a magical human who fights on the light side yet has been dealing with his own personal struggle and darkness for as long as he can remember. When he meets Iria he knows he wants to become a better man then he already is, for her he'll try anything. Together they make a great pair and their love is very sweet. Especially since Iria is, for all intents and purposes, an innocent when it comes to anything "human." I liked them as a couple and their story really makes for an intriguing start to this series.

However, even though I liked it, at times I found the flow of the novel to be slow and got a bit bored with it.

Nevertheless, I recommend this novel and series to those who like mystical paranormal suspenseful erotic-ish romances.

- On a side note -
In truth, because of the premise, the "goddess qualities," and the good vs. evil storyline I kept thinking about how this novel seemed to be a sweet mix of Ms. Cast's "Divine By Blood" & Ms. Royce's The Outsiders Series.

Author's Book Trailer :

Book Teaser(s) :
I must find her promptly. I send calming thoughts her way with hopes it will help her to last longer without air. She is over the hill, only a half mile from our home. There are dark forms surrounding her, hooded and oozing evil. I cannot make out what they are saying. All I now hear is the blood rushing, pounding in Iria's ears as if it is my very own.
I have dropped our things a ways back and believe they will still be there when we are ready to retrieve them. I call to the light to use its power, the power within me so I can get to her sooner. I find myself standing right in front of her now with my back to the enemy. Realizing my position, I quickly turn and send blasts of energy and fire at each form I see. Only hitting half of them while the others are scrambling to get away.
There must be at least a dozen of them. From what I sense, they are all full of darkness. Only out to destroy and corrupt.
I let my light forth at full power surrounding Iria and myself in its warmth and protection.
The evil surrounding Iria seems to slowly melt away until she falls to her knees gasping for air. I feel deep within that she is already feeling better and no permanent harm has come to her. Thank the goddess!
What do they want with her? They cannot know who or what she truly is—can they? ~ within Chapter 9
