Item description for Winged Darkness by F. Hampton L....
Zurellius, winged ruler of Valtar, haunts the crystal ruins of the Ancients looking for the cure to his race's survival. During his search he exposed himself to the Ancients' greatest evil. Now his strength grows daily, but his emotions verge on violent insanity. But his personal sacrifice will ensure Valtar's survival even though it will cost him his soul and most likely his life. Mona de'Lacy has violated Valtar's forbidden air space to get her listing warship repaired and to tell Zurellius his brother and sister-in-law were kidnapped by pirates and deliver his half-breed niece to him for protection. A constant flame of hatred toward the pirates who attacked Da'tarn and killed her husband and son burns inside Mona. As soon as her ship is repaired she'll search for the pirate leader Synika and kill him. But Mona didn't count on Zurellius's threatening beauty or his ominous sexual pull. She's sure her reaction to him is caused by his mesmerizing eyes and compelling voice-the very Valtarie traits that banned his planet of winged vampires from the Alliance. She also hadn't planned on Zurellius insisting he come with her on her mission to rescue Da'tarn's kidnapped residents. Mona soon realizes she and Zurellius share a bond-they're two damned souls with no hope of salvation. Then Zurellius unleashes the evil dwelling within him and becomes the monster that made his race the most feared in the universe. Can Mona open her heart to the demon Zurellius has become and bring him back from the brink of Hell? Or will she have to watch him executed by the Alliance?

REFRESHING SCIFI ROMANCE Apr 20, 2008
What a Pleasure this book is....curl up -get comfortable and enjoy..excellent story and characters with NONE- YES NONE (YEA) of the totally un-necessary voyeur graphic Sex that can only be described as Porno that is sooooo prevalent in romance books today..... This only adds to the ambience without the descriptive specifics even my hubby would blush at!....This is not to say there are no romantic interludes- there are- just the right amount- NOT pornographic!!!.
fantastic futuristic romance Dec 24, 2006
On the planet Da'tarn the illegal crystal asberylite, banned in much of the Alliance because of its addicting lethal quality, was found by the miners. Pirates led by Synika raided the planet and took much of the ore for its value to put the holder in a sexual daze. They killed many of the planet's inhabitants and took others to sell as slaves. For five months, Mona de'Lacy and her crew aboard the ship the Solitaire have been chasing the pirates because they killed her husband and son.
Needing repairs, the Solitaire is forced to land on Valtar, a planet inhabited by a winged vampire like race who need blood to survive. Their leader Lord Zurellius takes one look at her and knows she is his soul mate. He intends to go with her to find the pirates because they took his brother and his wife and he intends to rescue them. Zurellius is no ordinary Valtarian because he drinks predator blood which gives him extraordinary powers but also turns him into an ancient who has killing rages that he has under tight control for the moment. He fears he will one day lose control making him wonder if Mona is better off without him.
L.F. Hampton has written a fantastic futuristic romance involving a species that has vampiric like powers. The hero is afraid of what he has become since he drank predator blood but by doing what is forbidden, he turns into an excellent ruler who brought his people back from the edge of extinction. The heroine sees him when he turns yet though the changes shock her, it doesn't destroy what she feels for him. In between chasing space pirates, this couple finds the time to bond for a lifetime.
