The Players of the Wild Hunt—the Unseelie Dark Court ( @Nancy_Corrigan )
In any good epic myth, there are good guys and bad guys. My new series, Wild Hunt, is a sexy take on the Wild Hunt myth. There’s love, heartache and sacrifice. There’s also the epitome of ‘the bad guy’ in the form of an evil immortal named Dahm.
When I sat down to create him, I knew I wanted him to be unredeemable and so wicked he’d give the reader chills. With those goals in mind, I delved back into my research for a mythological character to base his character on. There are so many potential villains in mythology, but the one that lined up with the Wild Hunt myth were the faeries or more specifically, the faeries of Scottish folklore.
Those faeries are divided into two courts—Seelies and Unseelies. The first being the honorable, good fairies who seek to help the mortal world and aid humans wherever they can. The second, however, are the corrupted ones who enjoy toying with humans. When I read this, I knew I’d found my ‘bad guys’ and Dahm became their Dark Prince.
Dahm is a monster in the truest form—trapped in a grotesque body with a crazed mind. He’s been loose for a millennium and has been slowly building his army in order to free his Court and unleash the creatures of Hell upon the world. Only two things stand in his way—the Huntsmen and his daughter.
Of course, like most bad guys, there’s a story behind his downfall. The Wild Hunt series will reveal it along with the game that’s turned everyone into pawns that might destroy the world once and for all.

Tainted from birth, Harley lives a life cloaked in darkness and temptation. She resists the lure of her evil legacy by holding the memory of her ghostly savior close. Every night without him is agony. She fantasizes about him and yearns for his body, but he’s not the protector or lover she’s envisioned. He’s a Hunter bred to eliminate her kind. He’s also her only hope of salvation.
Calan, the leader of the Wild Hunt, was created to protect mankind from the Unseelie Court. For a millennium, he’s sacrificed to ensure the horrid creatures remain in the Underworld, but his strength wanes. He must rely on his enemy’s daughter to save him, but he doesn’t expect the intensity of their lust or love. Her touch calms his wild nature and ignites his carnal desires. He’ll risk all to save her, but doing so forces him to make the ultimate sacrifice, one that’ll damn him to suffer forever in his own living hell.
A Romantica® Paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
“Wh-who are y-you? What…” She focused on where his chest should be. He glanced down and saw the ground, not his body or even a ghostly apparition. “What are you? A g-ghost?”
“Not a ghost. I’m alive. I’m just not here.”
He stretched an invisible hand out… and touched her cheek. The surprise in connecting with her in a tangible manner nearly pulled him away from her. With mental fingers, he tugged her closer. He wouldn’t lose her.
Not now, not ever.
He slid a hand to her bottom and pressed her body flush to his. The cushion of her breasts stirred his lusts. His erection thickened in response to her nearness. Impossible, so he would’ve thought.
The half-breed fairy in his arms would one day become his enemy. A child of Dahm, she carried the chaotic taint he’d willingly invited into his body. It should’ve begun to corrupt her, turning her into a monster too. Yet…it hadn’t. Why?
Calan tipped her head back. Her dark blue eyes captivated him. Fear shown in them. After a moment, a desire to match his flared. He skimmed his fingertips over the contours of her angelic face. Possessiveness rose within him and mixed with an intense need to protect her. She was special. He sensed it, but didn’t have time to explore it.
“You need to run. You cannot allow them to steal the goodness you’ve managed to retain.” Because it belonged to him. So too did the female. He would claim both and she would be the one to free him.
