Realm Immortal: King of the Unblessed
Michelle M. Pillow

Immortality has a way of changing fate. Merrick, dark elfin King of Valdis, had once been heir to all that was good - happiness and pleasure his domain.Now, trapped as the ruler of mischief, king of necessary evil, he stands on a precipice of choice. On one side, his estranged brother, now ruler of what should have been Merrick's and, on the other, King Lucien of the Damned. Both would sway him. Damnation is winning.

Lady Juliana of Bellemare is from a human family, protected by the blessed, coveted by the damned. Betrothed to an old friend of her father's, Juliana is resigned to living out her days close to her childhood home, longing for an adventure, never dreaming she’d get what she wished for. When her fiancé is murdered and the children of Bellemare are stolen, Juliana is sent on a quest in a strange realm where appearances are deceiving.

Merrick brings more adventure and passion than any woman could want. Can she withstand the temptations of the unblessed king? The spell she weaves over him is more than he can resist and, desperate to be the one to rule her, Merrick offers her a choice; either come with him until he tires of her...or die.


Road to Romance, Recommended Read, April 2006

"...an intriguing tale of love, lust, and what happens when you're not careful what you wish for." Marissa, Novelspot, February 2006

"5 STARS! This was an intricately plotted fantasy that would be at home on the bookshelf next to any classic story of that genre... This is a wonderful book for all fantasy lovers who like romantic tale. There’s lots of action from Juliana’s quest to epic battles. There are also strong interpersonal scenes between Juliana and Merrick and between other characters in the story. No one is given short shrift. I was happy with where this story ended, but I will be watching for more as this world clearly has more adventures to tell." Kirra Pierce, Just Erotic Romance Reviews (JERR), Feb 2006

"Ever watch a video or concert and feel the singer is singing to you? The same phenomenon happens, very rarely, when reading fiction. It is not often a writer possesses the ability to give the narrator such voice, such presence, that the words float off the page and whisper through the reader's mind, as if the narrator is speaking directly to the reader. This has only happened to me with one other author... until now. Michelle M. Pillow's vivid storytelling, unique characters, and action-packed adventures make Realm Immortal: King of the Unblessed a must-read for all readers of fantasy! Ms. Pillow's fantasies will definitely be on my auto-buy list after this steamy romance." Joyfully Reviewed

"5 Wands! This is a gripping tale of fantasy, romance, intrigue and humour, boasting a fabulous, unforgettable cast of characters both human and fairy. Magical creatures, wizards, possessions, divinations – it's all here. If you like Terry Brooks, then you'll love this!" Autiotalo, Enchanted Ramblings, Jan 2006

"5 HEARTS! Ms Pillow has penned such a rich world with multi-dimensional characters that leap off the pages...her fans will love it for sure." Valerie, Love Romances, Feb 2006

5 Crystal Tattoos! "In Realm Immortal: King of the Unblessed, Ms. Pillow has crafted an emotionally gripping story of love and desire, deception and betrayal, all set against the backdrop of a war between good, evil and all that lies between." ~ Aislinn James, Erotic-Escapades

"You tricked me into giving my word. You manipulated me, Merrick.".

Merrick sighed, looking at Juliana's back. She lay on his bed. The room was his, but he'd been letting her sleep there. Now that she had pledged her body, he would not be staying away. He'd been up most of the night with Lord Kalen and his men. After the guests had left, they sat around talking, strategizing. The bonfire was abandoned. It was just a simple warning that Ean's men had been there.

"You look uncomfortable." Merrick motioned his hand, giving her a nightdress. Her gown changed to a loose-fitting silk chemise with sheer sleeves. She'd already taken off the jewels and he saw them on the table next to her toiletries.

She tensed, pushing up from the bed. "I'm tired of you doing that. I want to dress myself. I want to pick my own clothes. I'm tired of looking like a…" Juliana's mouth worked as if she tripped over the words. "Like a woman of low morals."

"I dress you in the materials of an elfin queen," Merrick stated. As he lay down, his clothing disappeared, leaving him naked. His crown faded into nothingness. He rested on his back, folding his hands behind his head. "Whores have no need of clothing."

Juliana's mouth worked, as she eyed his naked body. He winked at her, smiling. Fighting the urge to laugh, she asked, "Are you…saying you're a…?"

"Man of low morals?" he prompted. "Most definitely. It comes with the crown."

Juliana giggled, covering her mouth. She hit him lightly on the arm. "I'm angry with you. Stop making me laugh."

"What is it I have done now?" Merrick sighed. Would she never be pleased?

"That old woman tonight, the one with the missing eye. She said that you kidnapped me to start a war."

He said nothing.

"So it is true?" she said.

Merrick reached for her. She was always so quick to think the worst in him. But could he blame her? Everyone expected the worst out of him. He'd long ago stopped explaining himself, knowing it would do no good. For some reason, even as he resolved to let her think what she would of him, he found himself saying, "A war has started because I've taken you. I did not take you to start a war."

"Then why did you take me?" She moved closer to him. Her hair spilled over her shoulders in a messy array of curls. She'd taken it down on her own, but he found he liked the messy imperfection and did not change it.

"Kiss me," he said instead of answering. He expected her to refuse, but she didn't. Crawling over to him, she lightly brushed her lips onto his, making a soft noise as they touched.

"I shouldn't want you," she said. "I don't want to want you."

"I know."

"You killed my intended." Juliana didn't open her eyes. Her hair spilled along his face. "You've tricked me and manipulated me."

"Don't look to the past. It will never bring you peace." Merrick closed his eyes. His body was aroused, but that was nothing new. He was always aroused by her. Her smell surrounded him, so sweet, so soft. She was so beautiful, the one thing he enjoyed looking at in his world of goblins and trolls. "Touch me, Juliana. I want you to make love to me."

Merrick wanted her to get used to him, wanted her to touch him when she had the urge to do so, to not hold back. Juliana feared her feelings for him. Humans were strange creatures when it came to passion. They treated it like a curse. How could something that felt so wonderful, so completing, be a curse?
