"an underwater fantasy that sizzled"

Valerian, the Nymph King, has it all. From his big, muscled body to his overly handsome features, women flock to him. With his undeniable looks and special sexual scent, women are powerless to resist him. Along with his warriors, they derive their strength from sex—lots of sex!

In their world under the sea, they have taken over the Dragon's domain as their own. The problem is they do not have enough women to go around and the warriors are suffering from lack of sex. To counteract this, Valerian will go against the law of leaving their underwater world to venture to the surface and take women to slate and strengthen them.

Shaye Octavia is one unhappy camper. She is at her mother's wedding, another of her mother's long string of marriages. Shaye would rather have surgery without anesthesia than attend another one of her mother's darn marriages.

She will find herself out on the beach, getting away from the wedding to-dos, only to see an incredible sight of huge, gorgeous men walking out of the surface and right toward her. One of those men in particular catches her eye, but men are on her 'do not do list' as far as she is concerned.

Valerian is so used to women falling all over him that when he sees the most breathtaking woman of his life, and she could give a rip about him; in fact she wants nothing to do with him, he is floored. Cannot she see what a virile and handsome creature he is? How can this woman resist him? He will have his hands full with this woman. She is no pushover and couldn't care less who the hell he is. Bring it on big boy, because she is more than enough woman for him!

The Nymph King is the latest release by Gena Showalter. Ms. Showalter spun an erotic tale into an underwater fantasy that sizzled from the moment this reviewer opened the book. Her warriors are alpha to the core and sexy enough to fire up every neuron in a woman's body. They are big, gorgeous and with attitudes that will have you begging for more. The main female is smart, snarky and a perfect woman to handle her overbearing man. All this reviewer can say is more please!

Ms. Showalter's voice is carnally rich. The combinations of sexual heat, fierce characters that captivate and tease, and wondrous storytelling produce the perfect chemistry in The Nymph King.

Enter a mythical world of dragons, demons and nymphs...enter a world of dark seduction and powerful magic...enter Atlantis...

Females young and old, beautiful and plain crave Valerian's touch. None can resist his blatant sensuality and potent allure...until he steals Shaye Holling from a Florida beach and holds her prisoner in his underwater kingdom.

The cynical Shaye wants nothing to do with the mighty warlord, but she's inexplicably drawn to him. For underneath the warrior's arrogant beauty lies a complex and powerful man. A man whose caress is like fire...

Now Valerian must fight for the privilege of claiming her as his own. Because there's one thing Shaye doesn't know...

That when a nymph discovers his true mate, she's his for life.
