"A tale of paranormal love in the computer age"
Aleneic, the ill-fated King of Cups, appears to Laila
Brooks from his card in a beautiful but cursed tarot deck.
Forced by magic to exist within the card, he is called
forth once every seven hundred and ninety eight years. The
modern world of computers, humanistic simulations, and the
food channel fascinate him. He is especially impressed by
the strong, independent, and irresistibly sexy Laila.
Aleneic wants to take her to bed and show her just how
attractive he finds her. There is one catch, he has about a
week to search the entire world, find the golden tarot card
that entrapped him, and break the spell forever.
Laila considers herself a computer geek, a technical
magician of sorts, who has invented an incredible
artificial intelligence named Thane. She works for Rarities
Incorporated, a company specializing in unusual magical and
technological objects. She has become used to dealing with
non-human species, but none have touched her in quite the
way Aleneic does. When she realizes she is in the presence
of a very real and passionate King of Cups, not a sexy
computer simulation, she isn't sure how to handle him.
After several soul-wrenching kisses she decides letting him
disappear from her life is not an option.
A desperate search, paranormal twists that take you by
surprise, heroic fights, and red hot love scenes all
contribute to the broad appeal of this intriguing romance.
Taige Crenshaw takes us to an alternate reality that is
both unique and completely believable. The journey is fast-
paced, and eventful. The story tantalizes the reader,
revealing its secrets a few at a time. Strong leads, and an
array of intriguing secondary characters help keep you in
suspense as the story rises to its exciting magical climax.
Golden Seduction makes me anxious to see what Taige
Crenshaw will stir up next.
