Book Spotlight: Battling the Demons by Toya Richardson

Verity is nursing Lauren back to health after her brutal rape. It brings back memories of her very sordid past, where she was used as a sex slave for four, long years. When the man she’s loved for a very long time shows interest in her, will she have the courage to let him into her heart?
Alexander has been rescued and taken to the safety of the Seekers after being viciously abused by Phoenicia Coeur. Does he have the courage to prove himself and retrieve essential information from Global Innovations, even if it means going back to the place where his abuse took place?
Nikolas Krystos, an ancient Atlantean assassin with Chameleon skills, was thought to have been executed many centuries before, but he has returned with vengeance on his mind…and that is the complete downfall of the Seekers, Paul Veron and everyone he holds dear to him.

Reader Alert! Verity is helping Lauren to overcome her experiences of being raped and at the same time, it brings back all her traumatic experiences of being raped too. She has been in love with an Atlantean male for years but has been terrified to let him know how she feels. When he declares his feelings for her, can she finally lay her ghosts to rest and allow him to love her?

To My Readers: Hi everyone, this story is dealing with extremely sensitive issues. Verity is helping Lauren to deal with being raped, while she faces her own demons of the past. It is traumatic in parts, but also helps us to see that it is possible to have a normal life after such harrowing experiences. There is also a male Atlantean who has been sexually abused by Phoenicia Coeur – leader of their enemies, global innovations – and it deals with how he learns to cope with what he’s been through. I’d like to add that no one of what has happened to the victims has been described in any kind of detail. This story is essentially about how they learn to become survivors and grow strong once more.

About the Author: I have been writing seriously for the last five years. It was after the death of my wonderful mother who was desperate to see my work published. Unfortunately, she passed away before she saw it happen. I began to write seriously after that, needing to fill the huge void she’d left in my life. I’ve been writing since the tender age of four and was always encouraged by my amazing mother. Unfortunately, she passed away in 2009 before she was able to see any work published. I still miss her love and friendship. It was the catalyst for me to start writing seriously and since that date, seventeen books have been written, which include paranormal, fantasy and contemporary romances.
The Eternal Love of the Seekers series was originally going to be a one off, but it’s turned into a bit of a monster. Eight have been written so far with book nine a work in progress.
One contemporary romance/thriller is placed with a UK publisher.
I hope you enjoy reading my work as much as I’ve loved writing it. So come on and join my Atlanteans on their voyages of love and discovery.
