Review: Night Aberrations by JD Nelson
**Mature 18+ for explicit adult situations.**
Emelie is betrothed to marry a king.
Any ordinary woman would consider it a fairytale come true.
For Emelie, this is a nightmare made manifest.
When Emelie Andersdotter learns the outcome of a decades-long war hinges on her arranged marriage to an infamous royal known for his dark reputation, she sees no choice but to accept her fate. Resigned to her unavoidable destiny, she travels to her parents' ancestral home under the protection of a trusted family friend, where she prepares to navigate a world ruled by dark magic, mystery, and intrigue.
Nothing can prepare her, however, for the surprising affection she feels for the man she has always thought of as her uncle, Soren Vidar – or for the alluring reality of her intended mate, Kristian Vasen. Powerful and darkly handsome, her betrothed is far from the nightmare she envisioned, and Emelie finds herself torn between the intense pull she feels for her fated mate, and her heart's desire for Soren.
Night Aberrations is a romantic tale, set in a complex world, populated with interesting and entertaining characters sure to leave you cheering for the heroes while casting reproachful glares at the villains.
I received this book to give an honest review.
Wow! This book was a quick and fun read for me. I found myself not only liking the attitude that Emelie has but really liking Nils as the side character.
When I first started reading this I was kind of thinking okay what is going on a bit being as Emelie loses her parents and she is just waiting to die. But it all started to make sense as to what Emelie is, and what her destiny entitles her to do. Emelie is to marry the Dark Elf King and of course she just finds this out but he is not her true mate. It is the person that is awfully close to her. With her having to marry the Dark Elf King there is also another creature out there that is wanting her dead and he will get as close as he can to her. The fairies in this one are more different creatures they actually have fangs which is new.
With the magic, sex, humor and a great story plot I am waiting for book 2 to be out. I want to see more of where this story is going to go.
JD Nelson lives in California with her husband and three cats who think they're dogs. Always short on time, she has long ago mastered the art of procrastination, and was recently crowned Procrastinator of the Year by her editor, which is only slightly better than her being voted Most likely to waste time by watching Vampire Movies by her readers last year. All jokes aside, JD is a boringly normal person who thinks that coffee pretty much fixes everything, as long as it's before 6:30AM. When she's not spending time with her amazing husband (also a form of procrastinating), you can find her writing (not procrastinating!), reading (ahem...procrastinating), or on her commute to her day job (necessary procrastinating).
