Once Upon a Time…
Welcome to 1001 Dark Nights… a collection of novellas that are breathtakingly sexy and magically romantic. Some are paranormal, some are erotic. Each and every one is compelling and page turning.
Inspired by the exotic tales of The Arabian Nights, 1001 Dark Nights features 12 New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors.
In the original, Scheherazade desperately attempts to entertain her husband, the King of Persia, with nightly stories so that he will postpone her execution.

…Happily Ever After
(A Demonica Novella)
by Larissa Ione
Even in the fathomless depths of the underworld and the bleak chambers of a damaged heart, the bonds of love can heal…or destroy.
He holds the ability to annihilate souls in the palm of his hand. He commands the respect of the most dangerous of demons and the most powerful of angels. He can seduce and dominate any female he wants with a mere look. But for all Azagoth’s power, he’s bound by shackles of his own making, and only an angel with a secret holds the key to his release.
She’s an angel with the extraordinary ability to travel through time and space. An angel with a tormented past she can’t escape. And when Lilliana is sent to Azagoth’s underworld realm, she finds that her past isn’t all she can’t escape. For the irresistibly sexy fallen angel known as Azagoth is also known as the Grim Reaper, and when he claims a soul, it’s forever…

We are all SO excited to have Azagoth’s story! Was he someone you were always planning to give a story to?
Thank you! I’m excited too! And you know, I knew from the moment he appeared in a scene in Ecstasy Unveiled that he needed a story. I wasn’t sure when or how I’d do it, because when it comes down to it, the scope of his world is really small. I knew I couldn’t get a full-length book out of him because he can’t leave his realm, so when the 1001 Dark Nights opportunity arose, it gave me the perfect chance to explore his unique world and keep the focus on the romance – not on an involved outside plot. It’s funny though, because even without a huge world, his book still turned out to be twice as long as my usual novellas. Yay!
Azagoth and Lilliana are such an amazing couple and I adore them. Was there ever an idea for a different heroine or did you always have Lilliana in mind?
I’ve had Lilliana in mind for a year or so…not long. She started popping into my head while I was working on Reaver. I wish I’d included her in Reaver’s book, but she at least got a mention in the Reaver Christmas story I wrote for a freebie on my website. But yes, I’ve had her in mind…at least, I had her character in mind. I wanted Azagoth to have someone who was being forced to be with him, mainly because he wanted someone willing. Poor guy has been so lonely, and all he wants is a female to share his life with – so naturally, I have to give him Lilliana, who doesn’t want to be there. At all.
