Title: Devil’s Dominion


Author: Virginia Barlow


Genre: Paranormal Romance


Book Blurb:


Even the best-laid plans can falter. Lady Rolayna Seville has one chance to make up for past mistakes, marriage to Baron Rauf Oliveander. Hopeful to appease her powerful father, they journey to seal the contract when they are abducted by a demon warrior and his disciples. Desperate to obtain forgiveness, Rolayna uses every weapon in her arsenal to escape. Dragos, Duke of Dragonthorne has one job, to do whatever is necessary to stop the rebellion, including abducting a powerful duke and his pain in the ass daughter. When the situation deteriorates, his remaining option is to marry her, something he swore he'd never do. The attraction between them is soul-consuming. With the rebels attacking at every turn, Rolayna must choose between her planned future and remaining at the heart of the devil's dominion.


Excerpt:


When he lifted his head, she protested. “Dragos.”


His lids dropped over his eyes. “So, you know who

holds you.” He set her on her feet. Slowly, he

unwrapped her arms from his neck and placed her

hands on his chest.


She stood mesmerized by the rippling bronze of his

skin wanting to run her hands over his body as he did

hers.


“Does your rebel make you feel the way I do?”


Oh my God, Rauf! What am I doing? Rolayna

stiffened and backed away from him. Without his heat,

cold seeped into her bones, and she realized Dragos

wore only his breeches. His tunic lay on the ground at

their feet.


Her gaze roamed his chest and stopped on the spot

where she stabbed him with her hatpin. There should be

a wound or a mark, something to herald her attack, but

neither were there. Confusion filled her mind. How

could he be healed so quickly? She stabbed him

yesterday. She glanced up at his dark eyes and the

hunger within their depths, suddenly remembering her

near nakedness. Rolayna shivered, trying desperately to

cover herself with her arms.


“I…he…we…do…not…” she stammered.


He smiled. “I saw you together last night, and he

wore only his breeches. He desires to have you.”


Her chin lifted, and she stared up at him. “So, you

admit he wants me for more than my gold?”


Dragos’ lids dropped over his eyes. “I did not say

so.” He picked up his tunic. “Here, put this on.” His

gaze flicked over her one more time, lingering on her

breasts before he tossed it at her…

Author Biography:


I started my career as a story teller as a young girl playacting with my doll. I liked to pretend she went places and did things I couldn’t do and put her in sticky situations for the fun of it. Pretty soon my siblings brought me my doll and wanted me to entertain them, which I did with great pleasure. On one occasion my mom joined the audience and later told me I shouldn’t make my doll so naughty.


Later in life, I thought of writing romance stories but with so many small children I did not have the time. Now, my children are mostly grown, I can put all the stories in my head down on paper and it’s a wonderful feeling. I enjoy other hobbies as well, such as knitting, crocheting, quilting, embroidery, and sewing. I wallpaper and faux paint when I get the chance and make my own swags. My main focus is my family, and they are the joy of my life. I love what I do and where I am in my life.
