Legendary Creatures With a Modern Twist, by Elle James + Giveaway

by Elle James, author of The Witch’s Seduction (Harlequin Nocturne Cravings, January 2013)

Deme Chattox is the oldest of the Chattox sisters, red-haired, tough and has an amazing amount of attitude. Of the five sister’s her talent runs in the earth point of the pentagram. She’s been in love with Cal Black for a while, just afraid he will never understand or accept her for what she is…a witch.

Cal Black, mortal but oh so much more, is a dark, handsome, leather-clad cop with swagger. He’s been assigned to work on the paranormal investigative team and work with his love Deme.

This series leads the Chattox sisters into the shadowy dangers of the Chicago underworld and beyond, battling creatures you only read about in legends. Who would have thought the evil Chimera would turn up beneath the college campus Deme’s sister would attend—THE WITCH’S INITIATION?

In The Witch’s Seduction, Deme and Cal battle a serpent among them, a creature capable of freezing a man’s mind to get what it wants,  maybe even someone on their own special investigations team.

The Dark Lords series will be dealing with other legendary creatures like Medusa, Kraken, shapeshifters, dragons or demons. But don’t look for them to always be in their legendary form. Who knows, they might be disguised as friends or teammates.

Leave a comment letting me know what your favorite legendary creature is and why for a chance to win a print copy of The Witch’s Initiation.

    My fave legendary creature would be the dragon because it symbolizes power, mystique and greatness.

  2. I kind of find all the legendary creatures fascinating–each has it’s own strengths and appeals, and I love the idea that they might be walking around disguised around us 😉 What a fun premise for the series, Elle!

  3. Earlene Gillespie

    All of them are fascinating in their own way. My favorite would have to be dragons.
    They seem so magestic and is seen as a great strenght and protector in some cultures. It all depends on how the author can portray them in their books on whether it is a believable and entertaining story to me.

  4. I love the idea of dragons. They can be so beautiful and dangerous. Hmmm. Might have to write some shapeshifting dragons soon.

  5. I like unicorns because they’re magical and they look different.

  6. I am going with the griffin what could be better than a flying lion 🙂

  7. I love unicorns too, but I think I’d have to go with a Griffin. This series looks great! Best of luck!

  8. I just started reading paranormal books. These books are a whole different genre to me. I think so far I like the witches.341

  9. I would have to choose the amazing Griffin for its strength and adaptability.

  10. to be perfectly honest, I love them all. I enjoy each author’s creativity in bringing each creature to life 🙂

    Must say that all mystical creatures push
    my intrigue button. They make me want to
    everything about them. Looking forward to
    reading this series!

  12. I have a fondness for gargoyles I think they qualify as mystical creatures. Carin

  13. My favorite mythical creatures is the phoenix. The phoenix symbolized the beginning and the end of life… reincarnation. In Harry Potter, its tears have healing power. In Chinese myths, it got rid of the demons. I also love the fire-ry image/drawing of it.

  14. I like the merfolk, they are so mysterious, and dangerous.

  15. My favorite is the dragon because of its strength, power, and beauty.

  16. I don’t know if I have a favorite really. I just enjoy every Author’s story and how she writes the legends. But a Phoenix might be at the top of the list. 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win Elle. I’m looking forward to reading these books.

  17. I don’t know if they are a favorite, but Sirens have always fascinated me. Their seductive call would make for a great twist on a romance.

  18. Crystal Newman

    I already answered this question on another stop. I just hate when things come to an end. I really can’t wait to read this book. Thank you for sharing!!

  19. While I love a good story no matter what the legendary creature is, I am very partial to the werewolf, vampire and demon (all three tie for first place with me). All three speak to me about the inner conflict people have on a day to day basis – fight or flight, good or evil, right or wrong.

  20. This genre is new to me and I love reading the books. Adding more books to my buy list.
