Check out Adelaide Conner's Book cover contest…
A Curse of Midnight Flames
Adelaide Conner lives in Arizona with her husband, son, and three furbabies. When she’s not reading or writing, you can find her playing Overwatch (Ana main, sorry not sorry), bingeing anime on Crunchyroll (the first love of her life was Naruto Uzumaki) or watching trashy reality television like Love Island with her husband. Some of her favorite books and influences are Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas, Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto, From Blood and Ash and A Shadow in the Ember by Jennifer L. Armentrout, Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake, and The Selection Series by Kiera Cass.
What if Belle was actually the Beast? Shrek meets A Court of Thorns and Roses in this gender-bent, loose re-telling of the classic fairytale, Beauty and the Beast, perfect for fans of heart-wrenching, spicy, coming of age adventure fantasy romances like those written by Sarah J. Maas and Jennier L. Armentrout. A Curse of Midnight Flames is a full-length novel and the first book in the Possessed by Fire series about fated mates, magic, facing one’s inner demons, and self-empowerment. She wants to be a hero, but fate thinks she’s a villain… After an Oracle foretells the future in which twenty-year-old Ceres Elpis burns the world to ash, she flees the only home she’s ever known. But life as an outlaw is unforgiving for a mortal in an enchanted realm of fae, lycan, and merfolk. Even one who was cursed as a child to transform into a demon every day at the stroke of midnight. She wants to be a beauty, but he knows she’s a beast… When Sigrud Skuld, a disgraced duke and one of the powerful, immortal high fae, offers her a bargain, she has no choice but to accept. If she kills a feral, mystical phoenix terrorizing his lands so he can regain his title, he’ll offer her sanctuary and protection from the people who want her dead. While Sigrud trains her in the deadly politics of the fae to survive long enough to face the wild phoenix—a lethal world where friends are enemies, enemies are allies, and balls are pleasant excuses to spy and scheme—their tentative alliance simmers into fiery passion. But his heart belongs to another, and information is currency among the fae. She starts to hear dark rumors about his true intentions for her. Destroying the phoenix might be merely the beginning of his dark, lethal ambitions, and she’s the perfect pawn to help him achieve them. ***Please note: A Curse of Midnight Flames includes both fade to black and explicit sex scenes on page.***
