His Untameable Wickedness by A P von K'Ory 💕 Guest Post, Book Tour and $15 Gift Card Giveaway 💕(Dark Erotic Romantic Suspense)


A three-letter word made me a murderess at the age of eight years. But having experienced the curses of that word, I was done with men as I grew up. All men. Except to outplay them in the New York financial arena. Then Crowned Sex enthroned in gorgeous velvet charm and lustful gallantry storms into my life. Spewing volcanic lava on my monumental arctic ice block. With the unapologetic fierceness of a savage god. Wearing crackling thunderbolts straight from the god Zeus. Explosive has nothing on it.

Adrian isn't hot, he's fucking hellish. He embarks on melting my ice block at the speed of lightning. But I was done with men. I was done with sex. For ever. I. Was.


I scented her darkness from the moment I was told about her. The sight of her sealed my decision. She was the woman created for my own darkness. I set off to protect her even from herself. Protect her to claim.

Fuse her darkness with my own. For. Myself. I'd fended women off me with bazookas when I was done but they weren't. I wasn't prepared for the battle I soon fought. Not only with her but also with her family. And New York's billionaire gangsters who own entourages of corrupt cops and politicians. With every battle I won, she started new darker wars around me. You ate or you were eaten. Not even starving was an option.

NOTE: Although the blurb is in the first person, the story of Leo and Adrian is written in the third person. This story contains adult material including explicit sex and violence. You've been warned.

Power-wielding in Writing The Untameable Series

As a Pantser, my characters steer me to their desires, wills and emotions, which can lead to disagreements. When a character refuses to bow to the emotions I want them to feel or display, we have an issue and I have to stop and coax that character to please tell me why the devil they can’t just behave like I tell them to. Why don’t they want to go where I want them to go? I’ve learnt that it’s important never to twist the character’s arm into doing what you, the creator, want them to do. They have their reasons for refusing and you’d better be patient and listen to them, ponder all the pros and contras with them until you both reach an agreement that’s mutually acceptable.

But I’d never had a protagonist that fought with me like Leontine Nigella Boswell in the UNTAMEABLE series. Whew! No wonder Adrian sympathises with me here. Unlike him, I have little to make Leo bend my way. I can’t make her teeter around with soreness for an entire week.

Our first fight, the recalcitrant Leo and I, came when I wanted to offer Leo Sir Gordon, her London-based lawyer and Adrian’s uncle, as an age-gap lover-to-be-something-more partner. She could leave Manhattan for love-nest weekends in England, escape all the Wall Street testosterone that she had to contend with on a daily basis. 

Leo rebelled. I argued that since she’s so damaged and had a really horrible childhood, Sir Gordon was her perfect mate. A mature man with nothing to prove to anybody and an established member of the English peerage to boot.

“Nope, author. I don’t tick any Electra complex or ‘daddy issues’ boxes. I f****** killed the monster when I was eight. I’m done with men.”

“You’d be Lady Leontine Nige—”

“I f****** said no, author. I don’t do men.”

So I had to resurrect Lady Catherine, Sir Gordon’s wife, whom I’d conveniently killed to make room for Leo as the next Her Ladyship. Talk about the vagaries of plot points.

I offered Leo Adrian. She said, “Okay, I’ll check him out as a business partner, but I’m not promising anything else.”

So now I again had to change things to accommodate Leo. I turned to Adrian and said, “Listen, old lad, can you help me with Leo and make her have a heart? Even half a heart to begin with, for heaven’s sake?”

Adrian is doing a better job than I could have accomplished. 

But he, too, often has to grit his teeth and hit steel doors with his bare knuckles. Which fires me up – tongue in cheek – and turns me into that devious little witch full of malice playing them against each other. 

I can bond with Leo one moment and egg her on to drive Adrian “to hell and halleluiah”, and the next moment I’m in Adrian’s corner, wiping the sweat off his brows while whispering really bad things in his ears that he can do to this stubborn defiant beauty of his. I push him to bend Leo’s strong will and break that unbreakable spirit of hers so we can all go home to the HEA. 

Then I skip over to Leo and tell her to show the Brit bastard what stuff a woman like her is made of.

Now that I think of all this fun, thank you, Leo. I’m having a blast!

“If you feel I should stop, say you’re mine.”

“I am, I am! Just don’t stop, Adrian.”

He stopped, chortling deep in his chest, eyeing her from under his brows as his head lifted with her jerky thrusts. Adrian’s molten lava eyes radiated something utterly demonic but captivating, hypnotizing. They now seemed to shoot her senses with the wickedness every single cell in her craved. Those eyes concentrated on her flawed body, her utterly broken soul, crushing the fierce pride she falsely nurtured for her protection.

He made her feel invincible. Armored, even against his demonic wickedness. 

He licked behind her ear, whispered, “Stop being your worst enemy, wildcat, and simply receive and revel in pleasure. Your whole body’s made to receive it. From me.”


Adrian was born and bred to the upper crust but internally he’s a savage. He knows the rules but lives by his own. Gentleman, rogue or barbarian killer, Adrian operates by his own playbook.

Leo has enough money to purchase Manhattan and give the island to charity. But she can’t buy her way out of her entanglement with Adrian. He turns her world upside down, a malevolent god she can’t help but worship. She can’t avoid the hellish-hot Brit without avoiding herself.

Through the death of someone close, Adrian learns of the Phantom, a shadowy power that controls the Federal Bureau of Prisons. The Phantom rules them one and all, down to the deadliest inmate. All the more reason Adrian is determined to find him and eliminate him. But Adrian’s plan goes wildly wrong and the bodies pile up. Will one of them be the one and only woman he’s ever loved?

Note: This book contains triggering and adult material unsuitable for all under 18

  1. A gorgeous cover and an exciting synopsis and excerpt, His Untameable Wickedness is a must read for me. Was there any aspect of this story that required you to do research?

    1. Thanks for asking, Bea LaRocca. Yep, I had to look up New York State & City prisons laws and regulations for both inmates and officials. I also had to research NY State laws regarding the police and that uniquely American thing about "citizen arrest" and how it works in the city.

  2. The book sounds very interesting. Great cover.

  3. Thanks so much for hosting my Book Tour!

  4. The blurb certainly makes the story sound intense.
