Tour: Beauty's Enchanted Beasts by Jessica Frost (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Please give a warm welcome to author Jessica Frost!


Witch: Legend or Real?
By Jessica Frost


“Double, double, toil and trouble...”

When you hear these five words, the three witches in Shakespeare’s Macbeth come to mind. Three ugly old hags with warts, green skin, cackling laughter, a cauldron and a wooden ladle churning the thick ooze brewing as acrid fumes escape and rise through the air.

This has become the stereotypical witch, the one little kids dress up as for Halloween or draw in Art class in school. But just like all folkloric creatures, they are make-believe. Monsters we created to wreck fear in children and entertain us on dark, scary, rainy nights.

The difference between other make-believe creatures like werewolves and trolls is that witches did and still do exist. They aren’t those ugly scary creatures with warts and straw hair that fly on brooms in front of crescent moons. They are human beings like you or I.

Wiccans or witches have existed for centuries. Initially they were seen as Satan worshippers and then as both good and evil beings. Two sides to witchcraft emerged, one that followed the line of Satanism, and the other that followed the line of healing, curing, etc.

The history of Wiccans is long and complicated and so mysterious. It is this mystery that drew us to it in the past and draws us to it in the present and most probably in the future. As time passes and we evolve, so will wiccans or witches. They will grow and evolve with our changing world’s needs. They will probably remain an obscure minority like their ancestors before them. But one thing is for sure, their legend will never die, and they will probably always remain completely misunderstood.

In my erotic romance fantasy series “Spells of Seduction” I wanted to pay homage to the mystical misunderstood witch we learned about at a young age and who is a figment of our imaginations. I wanted to give the witch a new life and a new world, one where witches, wizards and sorcerers walk amongst regular town folks. But I didn’t use the stereotypical witch of our youth. Rather I created a new breed, one that I conjured from my mind’s eye and that the muse made blossom. The witches in my erotic romance series are sorcerers, demons, shape shifters, vampires, werewolves, and so many other things.
But one thing I did keep constant with the witches of our youth is that the witches in my series are still completely misunderstood.

I hope you’ll take the journey in this new hot erotic fantasy realm along with me, starting with the first novella in the series “Beauty’s Enchanted Beasts”, to uncover many mysteries, despicable and formidable villains, and sexy and passionate heroes and heroines. J


Beauty’s Enchanted Beasts  
Spells of Seduction—Book 1
By Jessica Frost
Erotic Historical Fantasy/Paranormal Ménage a Trois Romance, M/F/M, werewolves.
Elizabeth Stuart thought she couldn’t hate the Duke of Norfolk any more than she did. After he wins her in a bet and she’s forced to live in his castle, she learns she was wrong. Penniless and distraught, she moves in, vowing to make him pay.
Richard Albert has loved Elizabeth for so long. When her father asks his help in protecting Elizabeth from the evil sorceress Pondora, he agrees wholeheartedly, not knowing Elizabeth’s father lied about why she’ll be staying with him. Now she thinks he’s evil incarnate.
George Albert’s not happy his brother brought Lady Elizabeth there. Considering the danger that lurks in Castle Norfolk’s dungeon, she’s no safer with them. But after seeing how much Richard loves her and realizing she’s the woman of George’s sexual dreams, whom he so desires, he changes his mind and plans on making every one of his erotic dreams come true.
Soon these three get caught in a web of deceit, sex, and love. Little do they know Pondora has figured a way past the castle’s enchantment and intends on executing her deadly curse.
