Carniverous plants of the Otherworld. #Paranormal #romance #fantasy #dragon #witch

Meena dreamed of being the strongest witch out there. Instead, she killed a few plants. Turning into walking agent orange gained her respect in the otherworld - a place over run by carnivorous fauna.

Who’d have thought her plant killing mojo could cost her the man of her dreams.  

Over to Meena, Heroine of To Break a Warrior King's Curse to learn more about those damn plants.

Hi there.
There are worse things than man-eating plants, I suppose. 
I’m not fond of misogynistic Elves, and as for their Overlord… Well even though he proposed to me, he’s not a nice man.

Anyway, back to the plants. Here’s three to avoid.  



These smell wonderful—like marshmallows toasting over the fire—but don’t be drawn in.
 They send tendrils slithering toward their prey. One tried to crush me when I first set foot in Patria’s jungle, and as a witch without magic, I was glad I had Leo to back me up.
Usually they curl around their prey like a boa constrictor and crush the breath out of them.
A sea of rotting corpses sway in their tentacles, their victims' decomposed body parts fertilizing the land these monstrosities grow on. 


Pretty, isn’t it. 
Pretty deadly more like.

Hibiscus in the otherworld overrun everything.
They have a sweet perfume that makes you feel relaxed and at ease. Just like the poppies in Wizard of OZ, they sooth you into a deep sleep.
pygmy rats—not much bigger than a mundane world’s supermarket trolley—live beneath them. They rush out and eat the sleeping prey. 

In return, the rats’ feces fertilize the plants.

Definitely not a nice way to go. I swear Frank L Baum knew about them and used them as the prototype for his poppies. 


These are the worst thing in the jungle. 
The picture's deceptive. These stand over six foot tall. They ooze acid that builds up in the pitcher. 
I once saw a rat dissolving in the bottom of one of these—and otherworld rats dwarf the mundane world’s cars. Imagine a 4 x 4 with ears, tail and voracious appetite.

And, hey, move over Klitschko brothers. There’s a new girl in town.I fought a  warrior when he planned to toss his slave into one. The acid would have eaten her flesh then dissolved her muscles before starting on her bones. It’s a long painful death that I would’t wish on anybody. 

Crushed to death, eaten, or dissolved. Goddess! I wouldn't want to choose. None of the above, I guess. 

Funny thing though, I don’t remember any of these plants from my childhood in witch homeland. Maybe it’s magically protected. I wouldn’t know since they exiled me for being the weakest witch out there. Of course being Meena the Plant Killer makes me a popular girl now.

I spent almost a third of my life in Whitby, England.
Yeah, I know. Home of Dracula, and all things Gothic. I even worked in a Goth shop and wore a black cloak, lashings of eyeliner and a scarlet lipstick. I got fired the day I met Leonidas. He's moved on, though. 

I can't stay in Patria, but I'm not sure where I belong anymore. 
There’s something about a death sentence and exile that makes a girl reluctant to return to birth land.  
Mum runs a herb farm near Whitby, or she did before she disappeared. There's not much call for a plant killer there. 
I thought I could build a life among the Elves, but that's not happening. And as for Leo... I can't get him out of my head or my heart. 

Anyway, I will find my path. Meanwhile, stay well clear of the plant life.
It's lethal

Leonidas can fight anything except dark magic.

He inherited his father’s curse along with the Fae throne. Thanks to a rogue witch, if he doesn’t bed a different woman every month, he’ll turn feral. A man can only stand so much meaningless sex. No wonder he hates witches.

When he meets Meena, he intends to seduce her, not love her.

Meena’s a witch who never developed any powers.
Banished to the mundane world, she masquerades as human. When she accidentally bonds with an escaped war dragon, Leonidas comes to reclaim it. His enemies strip him of his powers, and his month’s almost up.

What happens when he discovers she’s a witch?
And how will this warrior king cope when his curse kicks in and forces him into another woman’s bed.
