Product Description

Happy Evil After, 1

Pandora is a Fairy Godmother who’s never fit in with her own people. Still, she has the power—and the attitude—to step in and help those who others have decided “aren’t worthy” of a happy ending. How hard could it be to manipulate some of the most feared beings in their world? 

Viktor has spent his entire undead life being the bogeyman to the paranormal community, and that’s the way he wants to keep it … with everyone else far away from him. But when the opportunity arises to take his revenge on his nemesis, he can’t resist—even if it means risking his reputation and rescuing the damsel in distress. 

Halle never expected to find herself in need of a savior, especially one with a reputation like Viktor’s. But she’s used to listening to her instincts, and her cat trusts the strange woman who pops up and claims to have some solutions. After all, if a girl can’t trust her own Fairy Godmother, then what is this world coming to?

 

Excerpt:

“I mean you no harm, lady. You can go. I’m only here for what’s in the car,” he said slowly walking towards her. She was a cute little thing, all soft curves with golden skin and hair.

“Um, yeah, about that … I’m what’s in the car, Mr. Krescech. You have to take me with you out of here,” she said almost nervously, those big green eyes pleading with him.

Clearly, she was also insane. What was with the women he was running into this week? Viktor had had more than his fair share of groupies throwing themselves at him in the bars, wanting to take a walk on the wild side for a few hours, but this wholesome little beauty certainly didn’t look like the type, so he had no idea exactly what she was asking him for.

“I don’t think so,” he said, moving past her towards the open back door to search the car.

“Seriously, there’s nothing else in the car. They were taking me from my family and my pard to be married to Conrad. I have to go with you to get away from him,” she continued, putting her tiny little hands on her very curvy hips in a way that distracted him far more than it should have.

Interesting, so this little number was a leopard shifter? Viktor hadn’t really had any interaction with the pard in this country, but by reputation, they were a good lot. Why on Earth would she agree to marry Conrad?

“I don’t rescue damsels in distress. I eat them,” he said with a flash of fang. “So run along, little kitten.”

The tiny spitfire threw her hands dramatically up in the air and sighed loudly.

“You just saved me from a life of baby-making slavery. Aren’t you supposed to whisk me away to your super-secret villain lair and ravish me? Sheesh, where’s your follow-through?”

Viktor just stood there and stared at her for a moment. He didn’t know whether to laugh at her ridiculous statement or take her up on her offer and bend her over right here on the trunk of Conrad’s car. He was extremely turned on by the fact that she didn’t seem the least bit afraid of him. He’d always tried to pretend that his reputation in the paranormal community pleased him, that it helped him by keeping the rabble away. But deep down it bothered him that everyone always thought the worst of him. His honor was just yet another thing that Melisandre and Conrad had stolen from him when they took his mortality.

“Don’t you know who I am, woman?” he finally said as she just stood there looking at him expectantly.

“Yes, I know who you are. Who else is capable of keeping me out of Conrad’s douchey hands?” she said sounding a little impatient.

“Don’t you have a family you can go to?” he asked, still wondering why he was even standing here talking to her.

Well, that wasn’t entirely true. Once she’d said the word “slavery” he knew he couldn’t leave her to Conrad’s tender mercies. Viktor knew more about slavery than he ever wanted to, and no being should ever be held against their will. That and he had seen firsthand what Conrad enjoyed doing to women. It still sickened him to think back to the horrors he’d had to witness as Melisandre’s pet.

“If I go back to my family they’d just have to hand me right back over to him again. My pard owes him a blood debt, and I am the payment. I need this to look like Conrad’s men lost me in the confrontation with you. This needs to be his fault, as otherwise, it will start a war between my family and his coven,” she said, stepping ever closer.

She stood so close now that Viktor could smell the strawberry and coconut scent of her shampoo. Good Gods, she smells good enough to eat.

“Why would you think that I should care whether or not this starts a war for your people? I will not be fighting in it,” he answered, trying to sound like he didn’t care one way or another.

“Because I think that you hate Conrad just as much, if not more than I do, and there’s nothing he wants more than to possess me,” she answered quietly, her huge green eyes staring right into his grey ones.

She was right of course. There was no one on this Earth that he hated as much as he hated Conrad. That’s what he told himself anyway when he ultimately decided he would take the girl with him—whether it was the whole truth about his motivations or not.

“First, tell me how your pard was thoughtless enough to enter into a blood debt with a killer like Conrad?”

“It’s not like we had any choice. My father was jumped one night by a bunch of rogues, and Conrad just happened to be there to offer his assistance … for a price.”

The venom in her voice clearly stated that she suspected they’d been set up. The rogues were most likely paid to attack by Conrad himself. It was a trick the coward had used over and over again.

“Fine,” he said with a sigh. “You can come with me, but just until we find somewhere to stash you that Conrad cannot reach you.”

“Thank you!” she said with a squeal just before she reached up and hugged him before he could stop her. “I’m Halle, by the way.”

Clearly, his reputation was never going to recover from this if anyone saw him being hugged in the alley, but with her luscious frame leaning against his, smelling so sweet, he had a difficult time finding a reason to care.

  1. Great Read! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jul 2017

    I really enjoyed this book!

    To be honest, I usually don’t read anything with more than two POVs (exceptions to GAME OF THRONES), but you cannot NOT love Dori – I mean, a goth Fairy Godmother? Can I have one please?

    Okay, so back to the review:

    All of the characters I enjoyed – they all brought something to the storyline. Viktor, being my favorite because I loved his humorous thoughts, and just everything about him. The story kept me on the edge of my seat at times, and made me laugh out loud and grin like an idiot. Flow was great, and there was never a dull moment in this story. I’m also intrigued with more of Dori’s story (and parentage) and to see if anything develops with that little crush of hers *wiggles eyebrows* Not to mention, the intimate scenes in this book is pretty steamy *fans self* – loved it!

    If you want a story that’s really well written, fun characters, and great story, I highly recommend you buy this book and read it. Sarah Marsh is a natural-born writer, and I look forward to reading more of her wonderfully well-written stories!


  2. A Deliciously Evil and Happy Ever After 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jul 2017

    Viktor by Sarah Marsh is the first book in the Happy Evil After series. In this first installment, we have a fairy godmother, named Pandora. (yup, that’s her!) She’s a bit different than your typical fairy godmother, she as we all might remember, creates havoc. So deciding to play matchmaker to the people who deserve a second chance at a Happy Ever After is her latest and greatest idea, after all, doesn’t every one deserve love?

    So she goes for vampire Viktor. He has a bad rap that while deserved a long time ago for killing his own kind, he’s deserving of a second chance now. Especially when he saves shifter Halle from a fate worse than death by being mated to coven leader Conrad, a nasty, nasty vamp that Viktor would rather get his revenge on, and does so by taking whats his.

    This was a total blast of a book that I totally loved reading. Sarah has come up with a hit of a new series, and having Dori pop up all over the place is a riot! Not to mention her mother and grandmother who appear in the story as well. I loved Viktor and Halle, and I was rooting for them the whole time. I can’t wait to see who is paired up next!


  3. The TBR Pile 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jul 2017

    Pandora is a fairy god mother that is trying to give the most feared beings in the world their happy endings. Therefore, feared and angry vampire Viktor is next on her list. Halle reluctantly trusts her fairy god mother and is thrust together with the dark, sexy Viktor. Together, they may just find that elusive happy ending.

    This is such a unique story! I love the idea of a fairy god mother for the ‘boogeymen’. The blurb alone makes me want to read this book and once I started I couldn’t stop. Pandora is a sneaky fairy that really makes me smile. Viktor, oh, sexy, undead, Viktor. *Sigh**Swoon*. Yeah, I really, really like him. He’s a badass with a soft heart underneath all that angry armor. Equally Halle is a great character. I like her personality. The romance is both sweet and seriously hot. I’m thinking some ice water on the side while reading this story would not be a bad plan.

    If you’re looking for a unique paranormal romance I highly recommend Viktor. Hell, this is a must read for me. I can’t wait for the next book!


  4. Leopards, Vamps & Fairy Godmothers...Oh My! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jul 2017

    Pandora is a wonderfully sarcastic, pot stirring, fairy godmother.

    Viktor loves his rep - he works hard to keep out of people's way. He's been on the hunt for Conrad for years. So when he finds out Conrad is supposed to be getting something delivered...he decided to step in and take it. Oh, did I mention he's a vampire?

    Halle is a leopard shifter (sigh, I love leopard shifters) who Conrad has decided will be his payment to cover the supposed debt her pard has. Halle has some spirit and isn't afraid to speak up.

    These characters are fun to watch during their interactions! Pandora really does stir the pot, and has a dream to help "the bad guys" find their HEA. I had some great laughs during my read of Viktor.

    Fabulous reading. I love the possibilities this new series could have!
