Paranormal Romance

First Line Friday: Luxuria – Colette Rhodes

I wonder if any of my colleagues will be monster food tonight, I thought idly, smiling and nodding at whatever they were saying while tracing lines in the condensation on my glass.

Luxuria – Colette Rhodes

Ophelia has a dirty secret.

Well, it’s not really a secret anymore.

Ophelia was born into a family of Hunters, tasked with protecting the humans from the creatures of the night who feast on their fear.

Except Ophelia always found the idea of monsters kind of intriguing. She even made the grave sin of committing some X-rated monster thoughts to paper—which in hindsight may not have been the best idea because her parents were mortified—but you live and learn. Well, everyone finds out your secret, you get banished from society, and then you learn.

But the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity Ophelia has been waiting for to make good on some of those fantasies has arrived. The King of Shades requires a hunter bride, and Ophelia is the best fit for the job.

Now she just needs to convince her surly monster husband, Allerick, that she’s the best fit for him.

Luxuria: A Monster Romance is an MF arranged marriage romance between a human and her not-quite-human husband suitable for readers 18+. It is the first in a series of interconnected standalone books.

If you love monster romance, you will LOVE Luxuria by Colette Rhodes! I’ve read this book twice over the past six (or so) months and both times were amazing. Superbia is the second book in the series and released on March 1, 2023, so now is the perfect time to start this series. This book is full of steam and a fun plot between the Hunters and the Shades.

I’m also ridiculously excited to meet Colette Rhodes next month and pick up signed copies of Luxuria and Superbia (and maybe some bookish swag)!
