Virtual Book Tour + #Giveaway: His UNTAMEABLE Wickedness by AP Von K'ory @Apky11162 @GoddessFish

His Untameable Wickedness

by A P von K'Ory

GENRE: Dark Erotic Romance Suspense


BLURB:


LEO

A three-letter word made me a murderess at the age of eight years. But having experienced the curses of that word, I was done with men as I grew up. All men. 
Except to outplay them in the New York financial
arena.
Then Crowned Sex enthroned in gorgeous velvet charm and lustful gallantry storms into my life.
Spewing volcanic lava on my monumental arctic ice block. With the unapologetic fierceness of a savage god. Wearing crackling thunderbolts straight from the god Zeus. Explosive has nothing on it.



Adrian isn't hot, he's fucking hellish. He embarks on melting my ice block at the speed of lightning. But I was done with men.
I was done with sex. For ever. I. Was.



ADRIAN

I scented her darkness from the moment I was told
about her.
The sight of her sealed my decision. She was the woman created for my own darkness. I set off to protect her even from herself. Protect her to claim.


Fuse her darkness with my own. For. Myself.
I'd fended women off me with bazookas when I was done but they weren't. I wasn't prepared for the battle I soon fought. Not only with her but also with her family. And New York's billionaire gangsters who own
entourages of corrupt cops and politicians. With every battle I won, she started new darker wars around me.
You ate or you were eaten. Not even starving was an option.




NOTE: Although the blurb is in the first person, the story of Leo and Adrian is written in the third person. This story contains adult material including explicit sex and violence. You've been warned.

Excerpt:

He caught both her flying arms, used her momentum to spin her around onto her back on the couch and landed over her.

Smack bang between her legs.

Pinned her hands above her head and every f****** struggle she tried only forced her to rub against his hard body.

Furious, her thighs tensed but with nowhere to go except around his hips. He planned this. She f****** bet he planned this to the last minute detail.

You double-faced bastard, get off me!”

No. You put yourself here. Right here under me, Leo.”

Get the f*** off m—”

He slammed his crotch right against hers and ground in.

She screamed as some unknown force kindled her center and the sensation rushed simultaneously south to her soles and north to her scalp.

She stiffened, trembling. Then whimpered. Then—

Interview with A P VON K’ORY

    How did you become involved with the subject or theme of your book?

    Thanks so much for asking and for giving me your time for this interview.

    First of all, the romance genre had always been one of my favourite reads, if not top of the charts. So when the mainstream publishing industry finally bowed to the erotic genre in all its multitude of tropes, I filled my eReader and bookshelf with all the controversial bestsellers of the day except paranormal, fantasy and the like. But I soon felt like I was reading one and the same story over and over again, from different authors but in the very same premise, plot and plot points. The nature of the relationships still remained anchored in societal norms I’d hoped would disappear.

    Therefore, I decided to add fiction to my writing (I’d been writing nonfiction for nearly a decade) in order to write steamy erotic suspense romance stories I yearned to read. I love Alpha women who are dragonesses in the boardroom and ultra-feminine in the bedroom – if the Alpha hero finally manages to get her there. And I prefer dominants that are confident enough to wield their power with dignity and self-respect.


    What were your goals and intentions in this book, and how well do you feel you achieved them?

    In the UNTAMEABLE series, I wanted to debunk the assumption that all abused little girls turn into helpless, malleable and needy submissives. Leo’s horrible childhood made her a fighter and protector of her little sister right from when she was herself a child of eight. Now she’s Wall Street’s dreaded GIB – Gorgeous Ice Block, because she’s uber-rich through her own hard work (she could buy Manhattan and give it to charity) and eats a ton of men for snacks, billionaires included. Except for Adrian, the Brit devil she can’t ignore without ignoring her own self. Of course she didn’t escape the awful childhood unscathed. She has her flaws. But weakness and a need for dependency and protection or rescuing aren’t in her vocabulary. So far, I think I’m achieving those goals. But the readers have the last word on that, not me.


    What was the hardest part of writing this book?

    The hardest part, which is still ongoing, is crafting the complex character of Leo convincingly. Like all strong and successful women, the world judges Leo differently. An Alpha man ruling the financial world on Wall Street wouldn’t be referred to as GIB in that negative sense. He would be the revered Lord of the Realm. Likewise Leo often has to watch her behavior. If she slept around she would be labelled something even worse than an ice block. To put it in Adrian’s words: It’s a bloody man’s world, twenty-first century and all. A powerful male billionaire could jolly well behave like a triple Nero coked to the hilt. Monogamy is anti-male. Blame nature. Men fuck when they’re frisky, eat when they’re hungry, bellow when they’re angry, sleep when they’re tired, marry women thirty or forty years younger. No such liberties for a powerful female billionaire. She’d be reduced to her cunt in a tic. Leontine Nigella Boswell knew that and threw the tables on the male world’s bloody balls. You crept to her on all fours, and worshipped her if she let you kiss the soles of her pumps.


    What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

    I thoroughly enjoyed writing the banters and tiffs between Leo and Adrian. Both are Alpha creatures – the Wall Street empress and the British Royal Marine assassin licensed to kill who is also a multi-billion dollar investor. They’re both stubborn and want the last word. They both have trust/secrecy issues. Adrian wants to shield Leo and Leo sees that as his presumptuousness that she, the mighty Leo, is some damsel in distress that can’t fend for herself and needs a man’s protection. And Leo has a huge thing against men. When I finally get them to have sex, they’re both as dark as hell’s abyss erupting out of Kilauea.


    Whee there alternate endings you considered?

    That’s yet to come in the third book – Their UNTAMEABLE Passion – that will be out sometime in the spring of 2023. I have a few endings sketched out. But with the dynamism of Leo and Adrian, it just might be some version of Romeo and Juliet. If so, I’ll send out a call for suggestions from my readers and announce the winner and their prize.


    Can you share some stories about people you met while researching this book?

    I’m a devoted believer in the adage write about what you know. I and some family members studied economics and worked for the family in the sector. I actually did a stint in the City, London, before migrating to the continent. What I had no knowledge of especially in terms of the latest technological gadgets (like Leo’s mint-knew YANA - Your Algorithmic Numerical Analysis – that is the envy of brokers and investors around the globe), I learnt from other family members who had connections to other financial hubs including Wall Street.


    What genre of books do you enjoy reading?

    I loved reading romance ever since I was around four or five. Mother dear subscribed to those magazines that serialized the romance stories where bedroom scenes ended with the kiss as the door closed behind the lovers. As I grew older, I devoured Barbara Cartland’s swoony romance. I recently discovered Colleen Hoover and the lady simply kills me with sheer genius in some of her works. So, romance remains my favourite fiction genre followed by thriller/suspense.
