A Unique Magical, Erotic Novel.
When dreams haunt you in the most delicious ways and fate pulls you into destiny’s path, what can be done other than to accept and submit to it.
Can Iria truly get what she’s always dreamed of or will it always just remain a memory? Being a rare creature such as her with exceptional beauty and rarity of existence should be enough. Though, all she wants is her desire, her destiny… To be with a man—one man.
Are these dreams she’s having real? Could she really take on human form and become a Lady to be with the man she craves?
Dezso discovers a magical creature—a being of incredible light and peace. He is drawn to it again and again, and his feelings grow with every encounter. He carries a dark secret that he wishes never existed. The only thing that truly brings light upon his existence is the beauty that warms his heart but seems to only exist in his head—with dreams and visions of a magical woman, full of heartwarming light.
Will he ever know true love and happiness? Will he ever be able to lighten the weight and share his dark secret with another…?
Darkness is growing stronger, weakening the light and killing off what makes the world a beautiful place to live in. Enter a world of fantasy and dreams, passions and temptations. A world where dragons, unicorns, magic and mermaids really do exist.A world where love WILL conquer all!
My Lady, so perfect and pale, with such beauty and grace is a sensual goddess to be worshipped and treasured.
She is the treasure that I yearn to have as mine and I focus now solely on the change. I am not sure how much time passes when my power suddenly snaps back into me. I grind my teeth to keep from grunting from the impact. Surprised that Than has not sensed my power on the move, either that, or he has not shown me that he knows. I am also very pleased that he is so consumed with his search, that he does not realize what I have done.
Both Than and myself turn toward the feminine sound.
I feel my eyes widen in surprise, but I quickly conceal it. It worked, from what I am able to see of her. I can only see her face and the pale upper flesh of her breasts. What lovely breasts they are. I feel my mouth water for a taste of her creamy globes, and my hands itch to feel their weight.
The woman from my dreams kneels, nude within the heather, looking disoriented. Her hair is a tangled mess, partially covering her face. She does not seem to be able rise and stand solidly. Gravity currently appears to be her enemy.
Observing her, I feel as if I am floating. Light and filled with air, like one of my Uncle’s magic bubbles when it floats up toward the sun. Higher and higher, drifting into bliss, and I find myself smiling.
She glances up, sees me, and her mouth forms an ‘O’ of surprise. Her breathing becomes slightly erratic. It looks as if she is unable to catch a proper breath.
I find myself moving toward her as though being pulled by some unknown force, completely captivated by the sight before me and unable to resist its call. Now, we only have eyes for each other. I feel everything else around us disappear. It is now just her and I, caught in a spell woven of lust and intense longing. I am lost within the depths of her soul-filled, pleading eyes. I move closer to answer their call when an annoying buzzing sound pulls me from the spell.
A.R. was born and raised in Bronx, NY and is the oldest daughter of two girls. She holds an Associate’s Degree in Computer Science and Information Technology, which was only briefly used. She’s a mother of two entertaining teen boys (as well as a lovely fawn Chihuahua, whom she considers her furry daughter.) She’s also a wife to a delightfully handsome and amazingly funny man-beast. She loves anything dragon and fantasy related. In her free time she enjoys exercising, writing, listening to music, hiking, cooking, dancing and reading. She also loves a great adventure in and out of a book!
She writes to free her mind of its constant wondering and clutter. She thrives on the fact she can share some of it with readers that have the same passion for a great story.
She also loves to hear from her reader’s and chat away, so feel free to reach out to her any time.
Q: Can you tell us a little about yourself to start?
Hi everyone. My name is Ava, aka A.R. Von. I was born and raised in the Boogie Down Bronx. I’m a mom of two boys and have been with my husband (aka my man-beast) for 18 years. I absolutely love writing and sharing my work with all readers. Especially those that share the same passion of mine for an entertaining story that allows for a real escape from reality. I also love talking about books, whether they’re mine or any others out there. I’m not sure how you all feel. But I’d be lost without a book in my hand!
Q: What inspires you to write?
It varies from story to story. It’s been a group of photos a couple of time and a song another. I personally just love and enjoy allowing my imagination to run wild and share it with others. Sometimes my mind is a bit…strange and that tends to lead to lots of sun stuff 😉
Q: Describe your book in 3 words?
Unique, magical, erotic.
Q: Are you currently working on a new book at this time?
I’m writing a story title ‘Envy’s Curse’ for a Gods & Goddess anthology to be released within the next couple of months. I’m also working on the next instalment to the Wunder series. Wunder-The Approach, is my very first published works. I had the most fun writing it and look forward to continuing it.
Q: Do you have favorite author whose books you love to read?
I have quite a few actually. J.R. Ward, Laurell K. Hamilton, Patricia Briggs, Stephen King, George R.R. Martin and Karen Marie Moning (just to name a few).
Q: What is your favorite genre to read & write?
Anything from romance to horror. YA to NA. Looking through my reading history, I’d say so far I enjoy paranormal (romance, erotic, thriller, etc.) the most. The same goes for writing. I’ve written a few genres so far. Thriller, paranormal, romance and YA. I have to say I enjoy paranormal the most. It allows my imagination to really cut loose 🙂
Q: When you aren’t writing what do you do to relax and have fun?
Dance, hula hoop, go to the gym, walk, read, cook, play with my pets, or go on some silly adventure (mostly inside my mind) while walking through trails or a local cemetery. Since the summer is right around the corner, I hope to be a beach bum. I do enjoy the sand 🙂
NOW THE FUN ONES 🙂
Q: What is your one “guilty pleasure”?
Dark chocolate with peanut butter
Q: What is or was your most embarrassing moment or the craziest thing you have ever done? Come on you can’t hold out on everyone. LOL
AHHHH! Ok, I give. I was visiting family in Florida some years back and was having a grand ole time drinking, dancing and socializing. We were at a club right on the beach. I was hot and a bit…tanked-lol
My cousin and I went for a walk along the beach and I just started stripping down to my bra and panties, giggling and ready to ride the waves in the nude (Yes, I did this without sharing the knowledge of my plan with my darling cousin). Yea, it didn’t happen. Getting down to the skin I mean.
I went in the water with my undergarments, planning to remove them while under water when out of left field, a few guys started power walking our way. My cousin stands there doubled over in laughter. Telling me to move my A$$ and get dressed while I’m running out of the water to grab my clothes and get them on with sand in my…intimate parts and wet skin. It was not an easy task. Nope, not at all. We managed to avoid the guys by walking, or in my case hopping, in the opposite direction.
When we went back in, apparently I was the talk of the club. I couldn’t look anyone in the eyes at the same time I could not stop laughing. It was water for me as my beverage of choice from there on out that evening lol
I believe I’m blushing right now thinking about it!
Q: Do you have a favorite love scene from a book or movie? Which book/movie & scene?
My long time BBF is V from J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I have quite a few favorite scenes throughout the series, but one that’s never left my mind was the shower scene with him and Jane. It was HOTT!

COVER MODEL BIO:
Meet Dustin Sherer (Fitness Model & Athlete)
Model Photo – photo by Jay Fuertez
Born in Ventura California. Living in Denver Colorado. NFL Free Agent. Fitness Model. Personal Trainer. Undefeated Cage Fighter.
I started off early in competitive sports and quickly got into football where I immediately adapted. I maintained football throughout my entire life. But my love for the gym and fitness didn’t start till sophomore year in high school. However, in my junior year I was in a terrible car crash where my head was crushed as I was ran over in the street by a truck after being catapulted at 80mph. I was airlifted to the hospital where I had emergency brain surgery and my heart failed. They immediately brought me back with an adrenaline shot where they presumed I would not live. I was in a coma two weeks. When I woke I had to re-learn everything including how to function and walk again.
In 2012 I went into training for NFL and now playing pro arena looking to keep pursuing football and modeling as well as motivate others and coach them in bettering their lives. Through fitness and motivational speaking.
