5 Reasons To Fall in Love with the Dark Desires Series with Nina Croft of Flying Through Fire

5 Reasons To Fall in Love with the Dark Desires series…

The Dark Desires series is a mixture of science fiction, paranormal and romance. The books follow the adventures, romantic and otherwise, of the crew of the space cruiser the Blood Hunter. I’ve had so much fun writing these books and I hope readers will love them just as much.

So, here are five reasons why I think you should fall in love with the world of Dark Desires:

1. Bad boys in space. Right at the start, I have to admit to a few things. Firstly, I fell in love with Han Solo at a very impressionable age. Second, growing up, I dreamed of being Doctor Who’s assistant (I still do in fact) and of course, he’d fall madly in love with me. Finally, more recently, my devotion to Han has been severely tested by my attraction to Captain Mal Reynolds… among others.  There’s a reason most of my love affairs (imaginary at least) have been with ‘space men’. I adore a bad boy hero, and space men, whether human, alien or something else entirely, can be the ultimate bad boys; living on the edge of civilization, boldly going…. Pirates, assassins, cops, leaders of the universe…In the world of Dark Desires, there’s no limit to what your hero can do and be.

2. The kick ass heroines. If the men up there in space need to be tough to survive, then the women need to be tougher. Gone are the old stereotypes; a woman can be whatever she wants. As long as she’s strong enough. In the world of Dark Desires, the heroines are more than a match their male counterparts. They’re just as likely to be the pirate or the leader of the universe, and just as likely to rescue the hero as vice-versa. In fact, the captain of the Blood Hunter is a woman. Captain Tannis is part human, part snake, and all bitch.

3. You get to travel to exotic locations. Dark Desires is set in the future when man has fled to the stars. I think one of the reasons we love to read romance is to be carried away to exotic locations, and it doesn’t get much more exotic than a totally different galaxy. Then there are space ships, wormholes, Earth of the future. Who knows where the crew will end up next, or when, which takes us to…

4. Time travel. I’ve already mentioned that growing up I was a huge Doctor Who fan—I would have been in the TARDIS faster than you could say ‘when do you want to go’. The fascination with time travel has stayed with me. Who doesn’t want to know what the world will be like ten years from now, or a hundred or a million.… Or maybe go back and see what the Roman Empire was like, or meet a real pirate, or walk with dinosaurs or… And so, it was only a matter of time before the crew of the Blood Hunter learned the secret of time travel. Now they can not only go anywhere, they can go anytime!

5. And finally, in the world of Dark Desires everything and anything goes. There are vampires, werewolves, demons, aliens, dragons…even the occasional human, plus mixtures of the above. You never know what might happen next in the book, or who it might happen to. The possibilities are as endless as the universe itself.

(Dark Desires)
by Nina Croft
Kindle Edition, 299 pages
Expected publication: November 7th 2016 by Entangled: Select Otherworld
Winged monsters have been seen in the skies, and a pestilence follows in their wake, threatening the very survival of mankind. Only the crew of the Blood Hunter knows where they come from, and only one man has the power to send them back—Thorne, a human/dragon hybrid in possession of mental powers beyond comprehension.

Candace Decker doesn’t need anyone to look after her—she’s a badass werewolf more than capable of protecting herself and those she loves. All the same, she’s always been drawn to Thorne’s strength. In an uncertain world, he’s the one man who makes her feel safe. And what Candy wants, she usually gets.

But while Candy is tenacious, Thorne’s willpower has been honed over ten thousand years. He might want her, but the last thing he needs is an infatuation with a young, impetuous werewolf. Candy makes him lose control, and that could have disastrous consequences.

As the threat escalates and they become separated by time and space, Candy must find a way back to him, because while Thorne alone has the power to defeat the dragons, only together can they finally bring peace to the universe.

About Nina Croft:
Nina Croft
Growing up in the cold, wet, north of England, Nina Croft spent a lot of time dreaming of faraway sunnier places and ponies. When she discovered both, along with a whole load of other things, could be found between the covers of a book, her life changed forever.

Later, she headed south, picked up the perfect husband along the way, and together they volunteered to work in Africa. There they discovered a love of exotic places and a dislike of 9-5 work. Afterward they spent a number of years travelling (whenever possible) intermingled with working (whenever necessary.) Eventually they stumbled upon a remote area in the mountains of southern Spain and the small almond farm they now call home.

Nina spends her days reading, writing and riding her mare, Gencianna, under the blue Spanish skies—sunshine and ponies. She reckons this is proof that dreams really can come true if you want them enough.
