About the Book:
Caleb is dark, hot, and commanding in human form. As a dragon, he’s a force to be reckoned with. When he witnesses the slave Lileta being beaten by his Overlord Odage, he nearly comes unglued. Without understanding why, he asks to take the slave as his own, but soon realizes his longing is more than an attraction to a beautiful woman. In a sick twist of fate, the gods have given him a demon as his mate—one he can never touch unless he wishes his own death. His only choice is to grant her freedom.

Lileta wanted to kill Caleb, but when she is freed by this tempting male, her anger turns to a desire that can only prove fatal. Even if she could claim him as her own, her dark past makes her unworthy of his love.

When their paths continue to intertwine, spiraling them to the brink of passion, can they resist the yearnings burning within them, or will they submit to their fatal desire?

PRFL is thrilled to share author Valerie Twombly's guest post ~ enjoy!  

Today I’m going to share a few tidbits you might want to know about Fatal Desire and the couple that grace its pages. Caleb and Lileta.
First let me begin by saying book two was not supposed to be Caleb’s story. If you read Eternal Flame, he made a brief appearance and I had no plan to write about him this early in the series. However, he is very vocal and insisted this be his book. I know better than to argue with a dragon and I can say with all honesty I’m glad I listened. His story was a challenge, but I’ve grown very fond of this man and I hope you will too.
So in book two I tie up a couple loose ends. Cassie and Marcus’s baby and we get to see what really lies behind Odage and his evil heart. Of course being the wicked woman I am, I opened a few more cans of worms for the reader to dissect J
Caleb, is a Draki. A dragon shifter who is stubborn, pissy, loyal, kind and gentle in one moment and lethal in the next. He’s not a Guardian, but one of many other immortals living among us. Like some of the demons, his people have held an alliance with the Guardians and helped keep the peace for centuries.
One of the things I love about Caleb, is his dedication. It shines through when he’s faced with a hard choice. Often he will put others before his own heartache. You gotta love a man who can be so lethal, yet have a heart of gold.
Lileta, is a Kothar demon. A woman of great beauty, her people have become targets to the slave traders. I love this woman! She shows us her vulnerable side. Like many women she often feels insecure and unworthy. However, don’t let her fool you. She will risk her own life to save another and has a heart bigger than most. Even when she feels let down and trampled on, she will fight for the life of another
Now if you remember in book one I mentioned how Kothar demons were lethal to dragons. Their body fluids poison to them. Great! My dragon declared Lileta as his when he insisted on this story. I accepted the challenge and now I can think of no two people who belong together more. They complement each other. When one is unsure the other is their rock.
So strap on your seatbelt, their story is a bumpy ride full of twists and turns. Is there a happy ending? Perhaps ;-)

Thank you, Valerie!

About The Author: 

As a child, Valerie would often get into trouble for peeking at her mother’s favorite TV show, Dark Shadows. She can still hear her mother saying “It will give you nightmares.” She was right of course, but that did not stop Valerie from watching. As an adult, her love of the fanged creatures never waned. She would watch any vampire movie she could find. 
Being a true romantic, Valerie was thrilled when she discovered the genre of paranormal romance. Her first read was one of Lara Adrian’s, Midnight Breed Series and from there she was hooked. 
Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper. When she is not busy creating a world full of steamy, hot men and strong, seductive women, she juggles her time between a full-time job, hubby and her two German shepherd dogs, in Northern IL.
