Demonic Persuasion

200x300Blurb:

Born of a Navajo healer and a high-level prince of Hell, The Dine Gods demanded Fatal be turned over to her mother’s tribe to learn their healing arts and kept away from demon hands. But with her tutelage came cruel segregation and disrespect because of her father’s heritage. Not knowing why her life has suddenly come under demon attack, Fatal sets out, armed with her knowledge and her fighting skills, to take out any evil that gets in her way.

As prince of a lower level of Hell, Orobus signed a contract in blood that he be betrothed to Fatal, the high prince of Hell’s half-breed daughter. Oracle by birth, he isn’t privy to complete visions with regard to himself. Having forgotten the fateful night he signed the agreement, he’s thrust into the fight of his life—the fight to claim his woman! Come Hell or high water, he will take care of what is rightfully his, even if it means making her face both sides of her heritage and teaching her there is no shame.

Tag- A woman born half Navajo, half demon, must overcome her lifetime of separation from her demon family with the help of her demon mate.

Excerpt:

Exiled. From the only home she’d ever known. After the first set of demons came to Fatal’s tribal lands, Sani, her grandfather and the Dine God of the Navajo, ordered her to leave permanently. Head held high, she packed her few belongings and left, determined to live her life on her own terms.

New experiences would be good for her, Fatal told herself while barhopping from Broadway to Westport Road, hoping to find the perfect atmosphere. A niggling itch under her skin kept her alert for possible trouble lurking in the shadows, but the cool metal caressing the inside of her thighs reminded her protection lay within arm’s reach. She never knew when a new set of demons would pop into her life and resented the intrusion she was forced to endure.

As she ambled down the darkened streets, she moved with a sense of ease, gaining blatant glances or admiring stares. She knew she was breathtaking, however bad omens had few friends, no dates, and no boyfriends. People in her hometown hadn’t hesitated to ask her for advice, or to chant with them when it suited their needs. She lived in solitude, with the exception of her occasional visits from her grandfather Sani, and Taima her mentor. She pushed her musings aside and moved through an alleyway that broke off to the next major street.

Silence surrounded her. She turned to head south when something caught her eye. Intrigued, she meandered down a side street and came to a demonic-looking, gargoyle-protected, granite structure. An eerie blood-red sign hung above thick vault doors with the words “Demonic Persuasion” in black paint. She’d heard of the club that catered to just about anyone’s needs and decided to get in line. Reaching the final steps to the entrance of the club, Fatal flashed a smile at the doorman and waited for him to move.

“The fee’s ten bucks.”

Digging in her boot, her gaze strayed to the bunched biceps peaking out of his black tee-shirt, roving over his cut physique. Slapping cash into his hand, she smiled. “Happy now?”

“I’ll be when you check your weapons, if it’s even possible for you to have any hidden underneath your black corset and micro miniskirt.”

“Oh, you’d be surprised what one can hide against near-naked skin. My name’s Ackchetta, most call me Fatal.” She smirked and hiked up her skirt. Buried between her thighs were two small blades. Thin metal stars she’d hidden on her hipbones slid into her palms without effort. Flashing an annoyed expression, she dropped them in his outstretched hand. “There you go. I want them back, though.”

“The one behind your back too, sweet stuff.”

His droll expression did nothing to alleviate the feeling of nakedness without her weaponry. “Aren’t you going to be polite and tell me your name?”

No.”

Anger set in. She smoothed her hands over her short skirt and adjusted her scant top. Her hackles rose when he spun her around and tapped the slender blade. “No one said you could touch!” She let out a growl and removed the extra-slim blade hidden under her corset top.

“My club, my rules. No fighting, no weapons, and no magic, if–you know any.”

“Since you’re scared of a small thing like me, I think I can behave myself for a few hours.”

He sent a dazzling smile her way and then turned to a young woman. Dropping her weapons into an outstretched hand, he whispered into the sleek brunette woman’s ear.

Fatal narrowed her eyes. “It’s rude to whisper.”

“Follow Marzena, she’ll take you to the weaponry hold and issue you a ticket.”

I still didn’t catch your name.”

I know.”

Rude and hot. About to turn away, her breath hitched when the shimmering tattoos sprang to life on his skin. From head to toe he was a sight to behold. Long black hair touched his shoulders. His blue eyes sparkled when he smiled. Thick muscles bunched with every movement. Long legs encased in black trousers, muscular thighs brought a silent moan of want to her lips. She’d never wanted like this. She stole a look at his goatee and wondered how it’d feel scraping across her face, his breath on her mouth before he kissed her with the same intensity he stared at her with. She’d do anything to feel those lips on hers, to touch the once-broken, too-many-times-healed nose.

~~*REVIEWS*~~

Wow—this is a whole lot of book jammed into 75 short pages. The world-crafting is meticulous and the characters (and there are many) have depth and complexity. The story has elements of pathos, betrayal, redemption, hope, love and an unlikely family unit torn apart by love and healed by love. The sensual scenes are absolutely electrifying. Demon sex is raw, unapologetic and energetic, and when love enters, there is an aching tenderness. The end of the book sets up the sequel beautifully.

Bitten By Books 4 ½ Tombstones

The description of Fatal’s eyes near the beginning of the book. I also liked the hidden meaning behind her wearing contacts. She wears them to hide her eyes, hide who she really is, because they give her away, and I felt for her and every single person out there who feels they have to disguise themselves to suit others. Why, oh why can’t we just be us?

The theme of acceptance and understanding someone else’s view of the same situation.

I enjoyed the demon-ness of Demonic Persuasions. So many different people to imagine that I felt like a kid in a candy shop.

How can you not fall for a guy who willingly throws himself into the line of fire meant for you? Although Orobus comes off cocky, arrogant, and a bit ‘jerkish’, he also cares deeply and refuses to be pushed away when it’s obvious that Fatal needs a hero. Independent, strong willed, and stubborn are possibly Fatal’s best attributes but they’re also her greatest weaknesses. The chemistry between Orobus and Fatal is unexplainable but definitely evident in the way they possess each other through sex. It’s after the physical attraction has been sated that they both realize how much they need one another and so the painful healing process begins.

I really appreciated the combination of both the Navajo culture mixed with that of a demon as it made for a unique and interesting storyline. Fast paced and full of interesting characters/creatures, this story sets up an interesting dynamic in the demon realm. In the end, I got the impression that this can’t be all there is, when characters from the story start staking their claim in the plotline spotlight. This is my first Mahalia Levey read and I’ll definitely be on the lookout for more of her work.   Review

Mahalia Levey’s first book, DEMONIC PERSUASION, in her new PROPHESIES IMPLIED series, is one red-hot read. The intensity of her characters’ personalities as well as their physical encounters leap from the pages. Ms. Levey’s ability to show a forming bond and not just physical chemistry, along with her hero who lets a soft side emerge from time to time, adds an element of sweetness to the storyline. Her world building is also well done. Her depictions of the underworld and darker club scenes are quite vivid. If you have a soft spot for demons, this should be on your to read list.

Review

Fatal, the main bad-ass chick is a woman after my own dark and evil withered heart. She is strong, stubborn and sexy as hell and has the HAWTTEST man in hell running after her to make her his mate. Together Fatal and Orobus, her hottie mate, bring down her emotional barriers, catch a bad guy and reunite with the family Fatal never wanted but she always longed to have. This book has all the things I think a erotic novel should have:

  • Hot guys
  • Sex toys
  • Naked people
  • Sex
  • and a little bit of a plot. ( I like a little plot with my sex.)

So at the end of this book if you have not gotten hot and bothered, changed positions while reading, or just thought about how late the local adult store is open, you may need to just stop reading romance/erotica all together. You may be a cold fish. I loved this book. She aimed to please and I was more than pleased. Go get it, Now!!!
Naughty Edition Reviews

On a scale of 1-10 I give this book a 10. If you are 18+ and truly looking for your not so typical demon story were love and trust can make a difference without coming off as corny than you really need to get a copy of Demonic Persuasion. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this story but I am proud to say I really loved it. I can’t wait til book #2.

Skyla Review

This is a story of hardship, love, happiness and understanding. I LOVED this book. It has action, love, betrayal and best of all hot adult scenes. Once you start the book you can’t put it down. It pulls you in from the beginning and you don’t want it to end. I would love to see this book made into a series or a full length novel. There is sooo much to take in that the story keeps you hoppin’. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves paranormal romance with a very erotic twist. This is the first book I have read from Mahalia Levey but I can guarantee you that it won’t be the last!!! -Brandy  Good Reads Review

A demon love story where being bad never felt so sinfully good, and one wrong move could be fatal” ParaNormalRomance Reviews~ Emily Rowe

For anyone looking for a good bad boy (or girl) story DEMONIC PERSUASION is the perfect one for your library. The relationships are believable (including the one between him and her) and build gradually as the story itself builds. The characters are strong and gloriously unrepentant. I would love for this series to continue and read about Fatal’s brother’s story as well as her parent’s, and I look forward to whatever else this author has in mind for this world and all of its other occupants. Review

Fatal and Orobus’ demonic sexual escapades are totally hot and brutally intense; every action and reaction during their time together further emphasizes that the two are demonic by nature and that their sexual exploits mirror the level of their desire because of their nature.

The novel does a good job of spinning a tale of deception and betrayal, providing a reader a glimpse into the demonic realm of Azazel, Lord of the Underworld and its political power plays. I really enjoyed every aspect of “Demonic persuasion” and highly recommend it. I hope a sequel is in the works. 5 HOOTS! NRR
