Cruentus: Rise to Power by L.S. Broomfield Blog Tour

Cruentus: Rise to Power
Book 1, The Cruentus Series
By LS Broomfield 

A prophecy of old continued to burn in the embers of time; long left dormant until the Cruentus family rose above all others as darkness ascended the lands. Greed and deception were the name of the game, and Arturo Cruentus would stop at nothing as he concocted the ultimate scheme to get everything he wanted. No price was too high. The scene was set, the pieces strategically placed. The Gallo family could not come against him, and in the end Guido and Palmiria Gallo would come out the biggest losers, watching their only daughter, Emiliana, be taken away to render a debt settled.
Young Emiliana Gallo, a victim of circumstance, was thrust into a world she did not understand and forced to marry a man she did not know. But what no one expected, not even Arturo, was that Emiliana and his son, Donato, would fall in love against all odds. For Arturo, love made one weak, but for his son, it was love at first sight. Donato became an opportunist in his father’s dirty schemes and did everything in his power to ensure the woman he admired for so long not only took his name in marriage, but also fell in love with him. Donato wanted it all, his gamble paid off richly, and he achieved both marriage and love. However, on the day they said ‘I do’ and the Cruentus and Gallo families were joined, Emiliana was ripped from their home like a thief in the night.

An unknown force too unsettled to let the vision spill and strengthen the Cruentus family decided to do the unthinkable—double-cross the Cruentus family. Rage and disdain fuelled Donato and Arturo. Though their reasons were very different-their goal unified them. They squared off with the leader of the Russian Coven to take back Emiliana, and in the end the Russian coven paid the highest price as the leader's blood was spilled in retribution for his crime at the hands of Arturo. News spread quickly to the Magia Council, and before long Arturo was called before them to answer for his crime of murder unjustly. The Ancients of the roundtable at Mount Blanc, the mountain range bordering Italy and France, was now enacted as they listened to the tale that had unfolded. Little did they know that they were a part of the grand scheme Arturo Cruentus shrewdly planned for the ultimate betrayal.

What’s Being Said:
Cruentus: Rise to Power is a unique read that will draw you in and take you places that you've never been before.  The characters are well written and engaging.  The combination of the late 1800s time period and the magical world in which the story takes place serves to make this story memorable and interesting.  I've never read something quite like this novella and I can't wait to see more from L.S. Broomfield in the future.
~Megan from Amethyst Daydreams

Rise to Power is the first part of the Cruentus Series. In many ways a prequel to the heart of the story, this novella packs quite a punch.  While classified as a paranormal romance, that label simply is not all-encompassing enough to truly define the story. It is far more than a romance, leading the reader through a course of love against all odds and a family’s quest for power. Ms. Broomfield wields her words much the way her warlocks wield their magic, creating a world that the the reader simply becomes immersed in. Her characters come to life on the page and in the reader’s imagination as the story plays out like a movie for the mind.  Through twists and turns, the plot is unpredictable and layered, and it will leave you wanting more. It is the perfect combination of love and magic, romance and peril, action and old-fashioned good vs. evil. Only this time you’ll be left wondering.... what is so sexy about the wickedly evil?

About the Author:
L.S. Broomfield lives in God’s country – Central Labrador, Canada. She wasn’t born there, but it’s where she and her family call home. Born and raised in Hawkes Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, L.S. is  published author who is currently working on book two of the Cruentus series, a series of tales about the Cruentus family; namely, Dragos Cruentus, who who will make his appearance in the second book. She is full of talent and takes a fresh look on the paranormal world.

As a child, Lisa always wanted to write. She didn’t have any predilection of what to write, as long as she was writing – she was happy. She remembers growing up and traveling to Flower’s Cove to visit family and letting her imagination soar as the pen sketched across the paper. At such a young age, it was perhaps mostly incoherent thoughts tossed across the pages but still for all, it was a desire even then to write and tell a story.
As an adult, Lisa met an amazing group of individuals, and with their support and encouragement was brave enough to write and let people read the stories in her mind. While writing is one thing, allowing others to read the words one has spent hours putting to paper is entirely another thing. It opens the author wide to both praise and criticism. Lisa found it to be scary, yet wonderfully exciting.
Lisa has many people to thank for helping her to reach where she is today, but none of this would be possible without the support of her husband, Shawn, and her amazing kids, Brittany, Daniel, and Jacob. These people fill her world with color and make it worth writing – they enable her to do what she loves.

“Why don’t you don’t try to leave this place?” Donato asked, truly curious.
Emiliana looked straight ahead, continuing on their walk of the grounds. She wasn’t sure there was an answer that wouldn’t make her look weak; she opted for the truth.
“My papa did not teach me magic. He felt the lessons I was learning at the time were far more valuable than magic.”
“What lessons were those?” he countered, though what Emiliana had told him surprised him. Greatly. What warlock would ever deny their child of learning their heritage? It was unheard of.
“He taught me lessons of working to survive, of putting in an honest day’s work to have something to eat or a place to sleep. I bet I have used my hands more tilling our garden for food than you ever have.”
There were little moments like these when Donato could see the unstoked embers of Emiliana’s fire, and that was only in the few days that she had been with them. He wondered what she would be like had she received the magical teaching as she grew. Her father was an imbecile.
“It may well be true. Though, I have had the other extreme of that. I grew up not having to do anything for myself, other than magic. I wouldn’t change it, though, because magic is a part of me. It makes me whole.”
She stopped at an odd juncture, staring at the nestling of trees on the property. Though the moment was brief, it was like Emiliana was a million miles away.
“I have always been taught you cannot miss that which you did not have. I would change nothing of my life, except for the day I met you.”
Donato flinched. Her words sliced him deeply even if they were not intended to.
“Emiliana, neither of us can control why this came to be. Can you at least have an open mind about us?”
Did she have a choice? No, not really. With a soft dip of her head, golden locks fanned downward, concealing her face, she answered, “I’ll try.”
This was not how Donato planned to spend his day. He needed to make her see he was not just a rich kid.  A smile caused his cheeks to lift, eyes twinkling.
“If I had some flower seeds, would you show me how to plant and nurture them? I have wanted to surprise my mother with her favorite flower for a very long time, but I do not know the first thing about gardening.”
“Perhaps you should use your magic,” Emiliana countered.
Donato’s head shook. “I think it is time I get my hands dirty. Don’t you?”
With that, Emiliana could not help the smile that broke across her face. Looking up at him, she offered him an olive branch.
“If I teach you to garden, to grow your mother’s flowers, will you teach me how to do it by magic?”
His smile mirrored hers. After only three days he could see a smile, and he had caused it. He knew deep down, eventually she would love him.
“I would be most honoured.”

Erotic Teaser...

Trevor took in the sight of Emily’s body. Her frame was petite, and he liked the extra few pounds she always complained about not being able to get rid of. He could get lost in the landscape of her body. She had curves which put any other woman to shame. He loved his country and was willing to die for it, but he would take the valleys and peaks of Emily’s body over purple mountain majesty any day.
His cock twitched while he teased the taut peaks of her nipples. He always loved the way her body responded to him as if on cue. She made him feel powerful, as though he were the puppet master and could pull her strings into doing exactly what he wanted.

“Damn, I love your nipples.” His voice was breathless.
She couldn’t help but arch her body into him as he began sucking on her. Tingles were shooting from where his mouth was and down to her pussy. She could feel wetness seeping from her. It never seemed to be enough with Derek. She always wanted and needed him so badly.
Her arms were wrapped around his head as he suckled on her. She wasn’t sure how long had passed, but her desire was building. She wanted him inside of her. It didn’t matter where, but she needed to feel him taking her. With her body arched into his and her eyes closed, she felt as though she was floating somewhere else. For a brief moment, she opened her eyes and scanned the room which seemed to be spinning. She shut her eyes again, lost in the sensation of the gentle bites Derek was giving her when her vision caught up with her mind.
Quickly, she pushed Derek up and off of her as she pulled up her dress and covered herself. She was flushed and embarrassed as she pointed to Zach standing across the room when Derek looked at her with surprise.
“You got here kind of early. I didn’t get a chance to talk to her yet,” Derek told Zach.
“You were expecting him?” She couldn’t imagine what was going on.
“Should I go?” Zach asked Derek.
“Why are you asking him and not even looking at me?” she demanded.
“Sandi, my dear. I’m asking the one who’s in charge.”
Oh God.
Then it hit her. Had Derek and he talked and subsequently arranged for something between the three of them?
“No, stay. Perhaps it’s better if you’re here while I tell her.”
“Tell me what, Derek?”
He got up off the bed and reached his hand out to her. She accepted and stood before him, but only for a second because he turned her to face Zach.
“Do you find Zach attractive? Don’t hesitate, tell me the truth.”
“Yes.” She wasn’t sure why the answer fell so freely from her, but she felt compelled to give into Derek and whatever he asked of her.
“You told me about your fantasy, remember?” His hand brushed the hair from her shoulder and began kissing her neck.
Her chest was heaving. “Yes.”
Pulling her dress up, he exposed her to Zach as he reached his hand around and dipped a finger inside her. “You’re so wet, baby. Why are you so wet?”
Her eyes were focused on Zach. He seemed aroused by what he saw which confused her. She was even more surprised when she looked down to see an erection hidden behind the fabric of his pants.
“Baby, I asked you a question,” Derek persisted.
“I…I…” She wondered what she could say. It was Derek who had turned her on, but the confusion of having Zach standing before her with a hard-on was confusing her needs.
“She’s confused,” Zach answered for her, and she wondered how he knew that.
Derek stopped what he was doing and brought his finger to her lips, gently brushing them with her juices.
“Derek?” Her heart was beating unbelievably fast.
“Do you love me?” he asked.
“More than anything or anyone in this world.”
“Do you trust me?”
“Of course I do. Completely.”
“Do you want your fantasy to come true.”
Her quick answer even surprised her. She held no hesitation as she admitted to him that she wanted something she felt so guilty for craving so many times.
“Lift your arms,” he instructed.
Doing as she was told, she held her arms up, allowing Derek to remove her dress. He threw it on the floor and started kissing the back of her shoulder. She was standing completely naked and exposed in front of Zach, his erection even more evident than before, as Derek’s lips and tongue caused her to tingle all over.
“Now, Zach. Come to her.”
