Fateful review....

  This book was actually won from the Authors blog. I really did not think I would win but the odds were in my favor.  When I won this I was skeptical thinking I better not put my hopes up because It wont be that good.  Boy was I wrong .
      Danielle Darcy from America is staying with her Cousin and her family. She is looking for her Mr. Darcy while in the old city of London. While in London she takes a wrong turn which lands her in a tight situation with a  boy in an alley. While she has taken self defense most of her life the boy sees immune to it. She tries to run but instead finds herself running into another man in the ally- Ethan Deveroux . He is charming, a proper gentleman, and also a vampire. An age old curse holds Ethan prisoner to eternal life. While during the day he has a heart that beats while at night he becomes the ultimate predator. Everything about him is attractive from his smell to his gaze- especially to Danielle .

  This story will take you from its first chapter through romance, adventure,and vampires.  A favorite that some say surpasses the Twilight Saga.  I even agree with the people who believe this for it is a great read.  If you enjoyed the Twilight Series then  you will want to read Fateful. You will not regret the money you payed for it. And it will make your heart desire Fractured which is available at Barnes and Noble and Amazon. You can also purchase it at  Smashwords

No Right To Freedom: Chapter 1 I WILL NOT

"You are to be married in 5 days, My daughters"
   All my sisters nod their heads in unison while i give him a look that says i think he is a Crazed idiot. Which i do think he is if he thinks any man will marry me. My sisters yes for they are all beautiful unlike me with my wavy black hair and them with their blonde hair other than Aredelia my twin who has my mothers auburn hair that comes to hair waist is falling in beautiful curls. She has about a million admires while i have about a million people who would love to assassinate me.
  " What do you mean Father? Surely you do not expect me to marry any man right now in the prime of my youth. I will not do it."
  I say for I do not want to be like all the other girls in the kingdom who are stuck inside their home with plump babies and never getting freedom that life is not for me. I am my own person and will not be owned by a husband nor any one else.
  My Father just sighs as if he was expecting it. While running his hand though his recently grayed head he says, " Hetaria as much as I wanted to argue with the boys' father he says I must wed all 5 of my girls to all 5 of his boys no matter how different the girls are. I honestly did argue but it did no good.  If you threaten to run away or kill your self you will have a guard by you all day and you will be confined to your room til the day you wed."
  I give him a mean glare and then Aredelia speaks," Father, who are we to wed?"
  That is a good question. Of all my egotistical sisters Aredelia is the less. She sometime joins into the torture of words or less times than yes she would take up for me and my other sisters would slowly back down for no one wanted to get on Fathers bad side with hurting his favorite daughter or even not be on her side would lead to chaos.
  " King Henry III of Guatasa has declared a truce and for each of his sons to marry each of my daughters which was perfect for I have five daughters and he 5 sons so the land would be joined through blood. Yet we have not decided how to marry you all yet. I was thinking closest to age which would work yet with you and Hetaria the same age that would be rather hard and we can not let you all nor them pick your own spouse for that would lead to fights and arguments and Lord knows we do not need that so I have no idea and I do not think Henry does either."
  Well that stinks im engaged to be married to either 5 of King Henry's sons. I do not and will not marry any of the princes for it is against my principles and what boy let alone a Prince would wan to marry a goth princess who is ugly and short compared to her perky tall and beautiful sisters. No one I could think about.
  then my oldest sister Karja asked," Father are any of King Henry's sons young as in still a child."
  I honestly hope Karja would end up with a little 9 year old... It would do her right for she is the worst when it comes to the torture of words. She is my least favorite sister of all of them and she is 21 and still depends on my father to feed and cloth her and still has a lady in waiting which even my mother has one still... I can not believe her... She gets everything that Karja wants she is what you call a spoiled Princess and I believe it to be so..  I still am not marrying anyone let alone a prince. A prince only gets a wife to show her off to his court and kingdom and to give birth to his sons to take his place when he dies some day. I am not to be owned and to have the little piece of freedom that is mine taken away by some egoistical prince. It is My Right to Freedom. I will run away if necessary.

" Daughters, you are to be fitted for you wedding gowns tomorrow and you shall meets your fiances in2 days hence so try to look the best darlings." " His stare glares at me as he spoke to us for i know he is only staring me for I am the only one who does not have a Lady In Waiting helping with every move I make so most days I do not have the beautiful hair of my sisters nor do I have cosmetics one for they make a person look fake and odd but that is my opinion.

 Now I need to come up with a plan with an escape route and find somewhere to go that Father will not find me at- or not


  " Hello, Mrs. Mary Ella.What are we cooking today." I ask the head chef as I grab a plain white apron just like all the other waiters and cooks.

 " Ahh, I did not think that you would be in here today, Hetta. Oh and im sorry about the arranged marriage but don't blow it out of proportion otherwise your Father will keep to his threat and we would hate to not have you in the Kitchen."
  I am more or less in shock  how did she know about the marriage it was only Father, My idiot sisters, and me in that dang throne room other than a few of the guards that follow Father everywhere he even steps- even in the bathroom. I need my privacy from all this palace protical which is something I am not good at.
  {"How did you know this Mrs. Mary Ella?" She never even looks up from her potatoes that she is dicing into small chucks and with a wry grin on her face.
  " Oh,child, I have so many secret spies around this castle I could tell you what kind of soap you used yesterday when you took a bath."
  " So what shall I do? I do not want to marry yet I do not want to be on the run for the rest of my life. This has issues either way I choose and I wish for once Father would actually let me have a choice and I have a feeling if I miss behave It will be the whipping post for me but I have yet an idea on what to do?

No Right To Freedom: Preface

 I see life on Earth as punishment or redemption from heaven and hell. Hell is all bad while heaven is all good. Earth is in the middle of the two. You can choose how to live it until you are placed into Gods forgiving hands or into the devils torturing tools. If you have ever heard the saying," Only the good die young." I think it is true. Those who die young are  redeemed early and are forgiven by god.  That is why babies come out of there mothers womb crying begging God to forgive them for doing wrong or crying for delight for another chance to be redeemed to the Golden Kingdom.  As we get older these memories fade away and we believe we are humans. While we are fallen angels either being redeemed or punished.
     That is how I see life on Earth as.  While I am a princess. I am treated like garbage. For I do not look like royalty. While my mother and all my sisters are exceptionally beautiful and graceful. I am quiet ugly and rather clumsy all the time. Nothing like royalty. I refuse to wear the rich golds and purples in dresses but dress in pure black as a sign of rebellion. Most believe I am not even the King's daughter for I look nothing like my  parents  in any manner yet none would like to suffer under Franded  II of Botlan by calling his daughter odd. What even makes it worst is that I have a twin that is extraordinary beautiful and she is bright and follows all the rules a woman should. The opposite of myself.
      My raven black hair is  rather wavy unlike my sisters blonde self. All of the commoners adore Aredelia while most would try to assassinate me if they had the chance for it makes their kingdom look bad when one of its royals wears nothing but dark coal black. While Aredelia is tall and slim. I am rather short and about 109 jaks (lbs) My black eyes do not look to extraordinarily for they do not have any flakes of gold in them what so ever. All of my sisters look like Karja who in response looks like my mother not including the hair which she inherited from Father , The King . My mother, the queens hair is a auburn color which is the envy of the kingdom.Where my hair color came from i have not an idea. . It is better to to thin than have curves in this kingdom. All my sisters are slim and trim while myself is short with curves. What luck for myself the social outcast of the Kingdom. I am rather surprise my parents have not disowned me yet.
  While my twin is the prettiest of us all with Mother's Auburn hair and emerald green eyes. Beautiful,slim,tall, and graceful. Everything I am not

   What sets me off most is that my parents expect me to just get married off to some foreign prince  just for some land. I am not a piece of property for them to sell or trade. While all of my other sister are fine with being married off by my parents choice of a husband and just do what the my husband wants and not have a mind of my own. I have different theories on most things. Just like how God punishes us or gives another chance on Earth and how we behave determines if we got to Heaven or Hell. No man would care about my  opinion if I got married off i would lose the privilege of independence. My thoughts the only things I really care about.

   Then came the day father announced that we all 5 of us are to be married to the Princes from Metban.I will not marry and certainly not to any Prince. Let alone one from are long since enemies.

 I Would love criticism... Actually I am begging for it. I need help with the criticism.
