"a wonderful tale of action, intrigue, battles and passion"

Looking for an escape from reality? Lucinda Betts' Running Wild will serve as a delicious diversion. Enter a world of princes and princesses; demons and winged horses; and throw in a magician to wreak havoc. This action- packed romp will leave you breathless—in more ways than one.

The marriage of Princess Shahrazad to the Raj, an involved three-day ceremony, has begun. This will ensure a partnership between her father, the Sultan, and the Raj, so they can fight the impending attack from the demons together. No man except relatives can touch the princess before her wedding, but someone does. So, the marriage and her land face impending doom.

Prince Tahir, whose mother rules the Land of the Sun, joins the fray of this drama. His mother has sent him to impregnate a woman of the House of Casmari—that's all men are good for in the Land of the Sun—but he somehow figures out a trick is in the works. That magician again! The augurys of the various players predict what must happen to fend off the demons, nasty little creatures that enthrall their victims through eye contact. But the manipulative magician might have influenced those predictions as well.

Betts has crafted a wonderful tale of action, intrigue, battles and passion. This is one of the best erotic paranormal romances I've read in a long time. The reader sympathizes with Princess Shahrazad and her sheltered upbringing where women are nothing but chattel; she possesses a strong spirit and sense of loyalty. Prince Tahir, raised in a land where men have no power, longs to prove himself. He's still the fiercely protective alpha male we all know & love.

I'm impressed with Betts' ability to weave the sensual scenes into the text, making them integral to the plot rather than seemingly fashioning a plot to string the sex scenes together. Running Wild is a page-turner and a must read for lovers of erotic romance. The only bad thing is the return to reality after the last page.
