A slave to passions that she doesn't quite understand, she does her best to simply ignore her burgeoning sensuality.

All it takes is one garden party invitation to pull her into an ancient struggle, one where she must place her trust in Nate and his mysterious brother Draven to survive.

Something only Jessica can provide.

An enticing, sexy tale of Angels too hot for Heaven!
Jessica Rylan is a young woman who yearns to explore her innermost sexual desires. When she innocently steps into a bar one night, she has no idea what she’s walking into. The Three Frogs isn’t your average bar, it’s a place where people freely engage in their passions, no questions asked. It’s there Jessica meets the suave and sexy Nate Black, who knows exactly what she desires and promises to fulfill her every need but only when she’s ready. Jessica is tired of living a “vanilla life” and decides to give into her dark desires but, what she is introduced to is far darker than she ever bargained for.
THE HOUSE ON HUNDRED HILL is a sensual erotic romance with paranormal elements that are a welcomed surprise! We are introduced to Draven and Nate, two brothers and ancient beings called the Nephilim, born of humans and angels. Draven has been searching centuries for the lunar mortal, the one who can help him free his father, the dark angel Azrael, from the Gregori, an ancient bloodline of immortals who live in another realm but can travel through to the mortal realm and create havoc. He has watched Jessica in the shadows for years and believes she is his only salvation. Draven enlists the help of his brother to lure Jessica to his home where he intends to make her his, but when Nate begins to develop feelings for Jessica he risks losing what could be his only chance to save his family.
The characters in THE HOUSE ON HUNDRED HILL are well written and leave a lasting impression. Jessica is smart, sexy and has a sailor’s mouth (at the most inopportune times) that I couldn’t get enough of! She’s adventurous and makes some bold decisions, you can’t help but like her character. Draven and Nate are tall, dark and handsome with supernatural powers and oozing sex appeal! They take their roles as Doms seriously and I must admit it was a bit naughty to read about angels engaging in a BDSM lifestyle, this was a first for me! Draven and Nate have different personalities, Draven is the brute and Nate is the smooth talker, but both show Jessica a tender side of themselves throughout the book. There is somewhat of a love triangle in the story which keeps you on edge but it’s resolved to make room for the romantic happy ending.
Though a short novella, THE HOUSE ON HUNDRED HILL is packed with plenty of emotion, depth and carnal passion that is sure to delight readers of erotic and paranormal romance who love a story that pushes the boundaries. It’s truly a compelling story of self-discovery, sexuality, passion and sacrifice that will leave you breathless! Jemima Valentino knows how to write an unconventional romance with such intensity you’ll need some time to recover when it’s over!
*Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language and situations that some readers may find objectionable: BDSM theme and elements.
