I honestly have no clue where the idea came from for the Fatefully Yours series. I wasn’t doing anything in particular, probably just sitting around daydreaming, when a voice started talking inside my head about tests, battles, wars, and the fight between good and evil.
From there, the idea completely ran away from me as it usually does. Seven badass demons who’d risked everything to escape Tartarus. One small and broken man who’s just looking for his place and a little slice of happiness.
Introduce the villain. Secondary characters join the ranks to swell the army that will battle against angry, bloodthirsty gods and all types of fantastical and monstrous creatures. And I ran with it from there.
I don’t know many hours I spent pouring over information to find just the right creatures for each book. I researched dozens of different mythological beasts from several different cultures. Roman and Greek mythology, Japanese folklore, and some I simply created from the spark of a thought.
Then I had to build my world, finding just the right location for this tale and keeping as close to the facts as possible. Luckily, my little fantasy world gives me some leeway on certain things. It was a lot of effort, but in the end, I think it all paid off to make the story the most it can be.

Dark Devotion (LoveXtreme) Fatefully Yours 1

[Siren LoveXtreme Forever ManLove: Erotic Alternative Fantasy Ménage Romance, M/M/M/M/M/M/M/M, demons]
Hex and his six demon warriors escaped the depths of Tartarus under Hades's watchful eye to live among the mortals in the Top World. The Oracle has prophesized an epic battle to come—a war between good and evil that will test the warriors as never before.
When Echo arrives on their doorstep, cold, naked, and hungry, they immediately realize he is their mate, and the prophesized “heart” that beats between them. Echo may be the ultimate weapon in the war, but he’s also a spitfire, and he instantly turns their world upside down.
If fighting an angry god weren’t enough, the warriors learn Echo has escaped from a secret lab hidden away in the mountains, and it isn’t long before trouble comes looking for them. Can the demons keep their new mate safe when it seems the entire world—and the Underworld—is against them?

The test has come, and Eyce finds himself unprepared to deal with the churning crimson waters of the lakes and ponds. The Oracle warns that he must surrender in order to be victorious—a concept foreign to the big warrior. Surrender is not an option.
Echo still doesn’t understand his role in this war, but he’s willing to do whatever it takes to help Eyce complete his task. First, he must find a way inside the demon’s heart and force him to accept the love he offers so freely.
While Echo and Eyce work to clear the lakes, the threat from the lab still hangs heavy in the air. More are coming. They will never stop coming. Though their troubles seem never ending, Echo knows they can face down their enemies if they stand together. Now, if he can only make Eyce see this before it’s too late.
