What if, all you’ve ever known was ripped away from you…

You were thrown into a world full of the same creatures that have haunted your nightmares for years. Magic, and the Gods are no longer a myth, but a part of your destiny.

Now, you’re about to lose everything and everyone you love to an evil King known as the Devourer of Souls.

Then, there’s Hades son…

The ruthless Prince that drives you crazy and thinks you are a waste of his time.

You can’t stand him, but he has been instructed to protect you, so now you have to deal with his arrogance on top of everything else.

The two of you must travel across the Realms to find a way to stop King Lucius before all is lost and you still don’t even know how to use your newly awakened power.

Well, this should be fun.

My life has been full of lies and betrayal. 

I just found out that Magic, Demons, Gods… It’s all real.

Now, an Evil King wants to harness my powers for his own. And if he does, he’ll bring ruin to all six realms.

The best part of it… I’m destined to save us all.

But how can I fight an evil that I’ve never even seen? Because no matter what I do, he always seems to be one step ahead of me.

To add to the shock of a lifetime, Prince of the Underworld, Asmodeus has been sent to train and protect me.

So far, the only thing he’s good at is driving me insane.

I’m not sure if I want to throat punch him or kiss him.

Maybe both….

But he’s my only chance at learning how to control my newly awakened power, save my family, and stop Lucius’s plans before it’s too late.

I just hope the prophecy is right. And being the “Destined one” is enough.

Because if it’s wrong… I’ve doomed us all

Book Blitz: Numinous, by Victoria Woods

Numinous RB Banner
Title: Numinous
Author: Victoria Woods
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: August 23, 2022




Prophetic nightmares. Spirit possession. Dark magic.

Childhood obsession turned irresistible passionate affair.

How does a sweet girl from Louisiana get tangled into a web of horror and lies?


I had the hard heart of a hustler. It was the only reason I had lived this long to tell my tale.

The American dream was mine for the taking.

My past would never be my future, and nothing would get in my way—or so I thought. Turquoise-eyed spirit—that’s what I called her. She had bewitched me the moment I laid eyes on her.

But her curiosity in a world that she had no business tampering with was too much for me to handle. I warned her that it would only bring trouble, but she didn’t listen.

What I wasn’t expecting was that trouble would find me in the most unexpected way.

Giving her up would be the most difficult thing I had ever done, but it was my only option.


America’s sweetheart.

As the innocent daughter of a Southern politician, this was the role that I had been groomed to assume. I was expected to fulfill the family legacy and marry a man I could hardly stand.

But magic beckoned me—the type of magic that one should think twice before conjuring.

Its pull was almost as strong as the dark and mysterious stranger that had crossed my perfectly straight path.

He was everything that was missing from my life: excitement, danger, seduction.

One kiss, and I was instantly his—until sinister forces threatened to tear him away from me.

How could I survive without him? But then again, I wasn’t so sure I could survive staying with him.

Now, my only saving grace was something that I couldn’t explain—that feeling that they call numinous.
