To the King a Daughter begins the cycle of Oak, Yew, Ash, and Rowan: the four powers of the world who have been warring for centuries. The Clan of Ash is slowly dying, their totem tree in the sacred square withering away to nothing. There is a prophecy that a daughter of Ash will rise again, but none have survived the mass killings, thereby rendering the prophecy unfillable. But deep in the swamps, in the care of the witch-healer all need and all fear, there is a young girl-woman who can not be the witch's daughter; a girl who, in fact, by virtue of her beauty and elegance and simmering power, can only be a Daughter of Ash, the one who will rise to fulfill the prophecy--and the destiny of her birthright.

What Readers are Saying About The King's Pleasure: "The King's Pleasure is the third novella in Kitty Thomas' erotic fairy tale collection. This novella was my favorite one out of all of them. It pushed every one of my dark, erotic, kinky buttons." - AsianCocoa "If you are a fan of Kitty Thomas, you will not be disappointed with this story. Leave it to Ms. Thomas to blur the lines of fantasy and reality in a sensational combination of BDSM elements and a solid story resulting in a great read!" - Bookie Nookie "As with all of Kitty Thomas's erotica novellas, `The King's Pleasure' is a world unto itself and a succulent little slice of story. There's so much packed into this little novella; politics, love, romance and a beautifully erotic tale between a king and his `slave' (whose love turns a kingdom on its head). Beautiful, as always, I can't wait for Thomas's next novel, `The Last Girl'" -Dee18 "This is some of Kitty's best writing yet: hot sex, awesome characters, great world, and the deep psychological exploration of the kink lifestyle that marks all of Kitty's work." -Nattie Jones "The night after I had read The King's Pleasure, I picked up another of her books called Guilty Pleasures which was just so intense and sizzling hot! I can honestly say I'm hooked on Kitty!" -Amazon Customer "If you are interested in reading dark erotica, I would recommend the novels. Comfort Food is the most disturbing, and good literature is often disturbing. Tender Mercies is the best love story, and likely to be a favorite." -E. Wakeman What Other Authors are Saying About The King's Pleasure: “King’s Pleasure pushed all my buttons. The vulnerable heroine, and the perverse and powerful king who you suspect still has a golden heart… A hot, well-imagined fantasy world and sexy, touching emotional interaction. This is Happily Ever After for the kinky set!” – Annabel Joseph, author of Odalisque. “Another amazing read from Kitty Thomas. One thing I can count on from this author is to create a read unlike anything else on the market. From fantasy to sci-fi to contemporary, her books always defy categorization. Whatever the setting, when I want the real deal when it comes to exploring master/slave relationships, I turn to Kitty’s stories. With work that’s powerful, sexy and intense, she never fails to deliver.” ~ Cari Quinn, author of Provoke Me More dark literary erotica by Kitty Thomas: Dark Erotic Novels: Comfort Food Guilty Pleasures Tender Mercies The Last Girl Submissive Fairy Tales (latest release--anthology of The Auction, Awakening, and The King's Pleasure.)

William Butter Yeats, who some critics feel was the greatest English language poet of our century, led a life of many contradictions. He was Ireland's most revered writer and won the Nobel Prize for Literature. But in his private life, Yeats struggled with passionate, if unrequited, relationships with women and was haunted by the spirits of his ancestors. Renowned biographer Brenda Maddox examines the poet's life through the prism of his personal obsession with the supernatural and otherworldly. She considers for the first time the Automatic Script, the trancelike communication with supposed spirits that he and his much younger wife. Georgie, conducted during the early years of their marriage. Writing with edge, wit, and energy, she finds the essential clues to Yeats's life and work in his unusual relationships with women, most particularly Maude and Iseult Gonne, his wife Georgie, and his rarely discussed mother.
