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!

I was drawn to Lady’s Destiny by its unique and original sounding plot. I thought I was going to enjoy it but really, I found it a bit disappointing.

So, a unicorn has found itself falling for a human… A different kind of scenario than what you’ll find in most books and maybe not everyone’s kind of book but still, it sounded like an interesting plot. Plot which is too often forgotten in erotica and plot which we’re sadly devoid of in Lady’s Destiny.

Honestly, at the beginning, virtually every page was full of the erotic scenes and by the time I got to the part where the plot was mentioned, I didn’t understand what was going on. Don’t get me wrong, I think the author writes good, steamy scenes. The erotic writing is good and there was a lot of it, so maybe that means I should have enjoyed the book. If it hadn’t started straight away with the erotica, the intriguing plot probably would have worked for me but it wasn’t like that.

I’m not sure I really understood the story but it revolved around the relationship between Iria and Dezso. It felt rushed to me because even though the word love was being thrown about, all I could see was the lust between them. Maybe if I could have felt a proper connection between them, I would have liked the book a lot more but it just wasn’t for me. I think Lady’s Destiny will appeal to people for its distinctive plot and there were a few twists which kept me reading but I didn’t really enjoy it.

Review also posted on Goodreads | Amazon UK | Amazon

A.R. was born and raised in Bronx, NY and is the oldest daughter of two girls. She holds an Associate’s Degree in Computer Science and Information Technology, which was only briefly used. She’s a mother of two entertaining teen boys (as well as a lovely fawn Chihuahua, whom she considers her furry daughter.) She’s also a wife to a delightfully handsome and amazingly funny man-beast. She loves anything dragon and fantasy related. In her free time she enjoys exercising, writing, listening to music, hiking, cooking, dancing and reading. She also loves a great adventure in and out of a book! She writes to free her mind of its constant wondering and clutter. She thrives on the fact she can share some of it with readers that have the same passion for a great story.

She also loves to hear from her reader’s and chat away, so feel free to reach out to her any time.
