The tale of lust for life and love, which you’ll either adore or hate
The other day, as I was sipping at my morning coffee and reading through reviews of my gay erotic paranormal fantasy Trails of Love I Crawl, I realized I probably wrote a controversial book. Readers either love it or hate it and there is nothing in between, which… actually makes me proud. The book pulls strong emotions from the audience and that’s always preferable to indifference.
What do people who love my work say? It’s beautifully written. It reads like a bard’s tale. It’s full of emotions. It brings tears into one’s eyes. All of that is true. I speak with my readers on a variety of platforms, so I know.
But if somebody doesn’t like BDSM, can’t stand erotic torture and D/s appals him, I strongly encourage him to pass my characters, my books and me. We’re just not the right ones for him. Only half jokingly I issued a warning the same day: “I order you not to read my books. If you don’t like BDSM, that is.”
If that is not your case, please, read on. I’d like to invite you to join me and my characters in the epic story about the lust for life and love. Chances are high you’ll love the books 🙂
Blurb of Part 1: What happens when a guardian of two young men in love is misguided in his beliefs about gay relationships and sends his charges to a reformatory? Amédée’s and Lucien’s first reactions are shock and fear but they have no other choice than to submit to their guardian’s will. Viktor, a first class impostor and the co-owner of the fearful institution, is ready to subject them to all kinds of painful reformations. Or?
The story of two star-crossed lovers soon picks up the pace when Viktor realizes that he is not entirely immune to Amédée’s charms. And when High Demon Belial, the Prince of Trickery, the Lord of Lust and the Antilight, takes an interest in the innocent youths, events gather even more momentum. Are the mortals ready to walk and crawl the trails of love? And what effects will Belial’s plays have on their destinies?
Blurb of Part 2: What do you do when you face the biggest fear of losing somebody you love? And what do the boys and men in this epic story about lust for life and love do? Do they cave in and lose their faith or do they fall, get to their feet again and fight on for the most powerful belief of all? And how do immortals influence their fates? Deathbearer is prowling around the Cherson’s army encampment and this time she has found a better instrument for her malicious vengeance. Will her plotting destroy Belial’s favorites or will he be able to protect them from all harm? Two boys, five men, and two immortals. Twenty-two nights of life. What will the full moon night bring?
A snippet for your reading pleasure:
Dazzled by the slender boy, he was trying to take in his every feature. His presence called to him so loudly that he completely overheard another swoosh of wings behind him and wasn’t aware of the other pet until the lad brushed past him to reach his master. Only then he noticed him and almost whimpered in overwhelming need. The demonic trio in front of him was so sensual, so arousing, so perfect in their nakedness. And the harmonious contrast between the two boys took his breath away. The second young demon was mocha-haired, his complexion resembled the softest cream and his wings had the color of the lightest foam on a cup of coffee. He couldn’t see his face but would bet his life that he was just as beautiful as the silvery one was. For now he could only fantasize about a silver moon bathing in the dark waters of the river Oise as he gazed at their luxurious manes and listened to the silken timbre of their voices that spoke in unison: “Yes, Master?”
Desire buffeted him in a gale he couldn’t really weather. His fingertips trembled with craving to touch the demonic beauty and his loins pined for its favor. For the moment he became a prisoner of his own lust and the tension in his lower abdomen threatened to burst if he attempted to break free without fulfillment of his carnal need. It was there. Pulsing, throbbing, twitching. Aching for his attention. And it had been too long since he had last lain with Amédée to resist the urges now. The victorirous, smug smirk on his captor‘s lips told him that the demon knew of his state. And more importantly… that he wanted him to see and feel that he knew.
(Just for the sake of clarity: all characters in my novels are adults. If they are addressed as boys or lads, it simply means they are younger than other characters in the story).
An excerpt from a recent review:
I have never experienced such anticipation as I did while waiting for this book to be published. I had been so emotionally moved by the tale of lust and love in Part 1 and had grown so attached to all of the characters that I could not wait for the sequel to be published to learn what fate awaited these amazing men. I could barely contain my excitement as I sat down to read Trails of Love I Crawl Part 2. […] A beautifully written work of art, this story left me breathless and desperate for Part 3. If you are a fan of gay erotic fantasy, you don’t want to miss this book!
Are you hooked? Would you like to enter my and my characters’ world? Welcome. We will be happy to have you over for as long as you want to stay and hope you will enjoy our company.
About the author
Ciaran Dwynvil, the bard of gay erotic fantasy, writes for… the characters. “I’m their happy scribe and their personal bard. When they come to me, their story is already there and they just need an author willing to listen in silent midnight hours, paint their life with words and then sing about it on pages of the books. That’s what I do and what fills my days with joy,” he says. This approach to writing resonates best with thoughtful readers for whom character emotions and plots are just as important, (if not more) as the erotic aspect of the stories. The lines in Ciaran’s novels flow like verses in a minstrel’s tales from the time long passed. Like stitches on a tapestry they create intricate images for those who dare to join the characters in the moments of bliss and in the moments of their darkest hours. Readers will get pulled in a complex fantasy world and will live through stories of faith, life, love and lust that will leave them aching for more. The narratives never use solely one character’s point of view. Just like a tapestry doesn’t rely just on one color, Ciaran’s novels aren’t told in one voice only. All heroes and villains speak on the pages and thus allow a reader to experience their story from multiple perspectives until a rich, complete vision fully emerges.
