Note: The much anticipated sequel is currently being written. The Elysian Chronicles, Book II, RYMUS is in the works!
Faith has no idea why she seems immortal, never aging, never dying. All other aspects of her existence are human enough, even the numerous heartbreaks she’s endured during her millennia spent on Earth. Her first mate, her immortal counterpart, Gabriel, vanished, leaving her alone and stranded. We join Faith in the year, twenty twelve, immediately following the death of her fourteenth husband. Her epic journey through time continues as she finds new lovers and new loves and is momentarily trapped in a dimensional time warp near a Fae Sithen in Iceland. Some of her repressed memories begin to surface and she remembers bits and pieces from her first existence on the planet, Elysia. She has few supernatural abilities apart from recognizing other sentient or alien souls and her magical hair that has a mind of its own. She struggles with depression and abandonment as she continues on, forcing herself to dwell in the now. Her need for activity and companionship sends her on a mission to buy a horse, and it is then that she meets Iain. Will Iain prove her undoing? Will the alien mercenary, trapped after his vessel crashed, become her protector and lover, or will he hand her over to the ones that seek to acquire and own; A child of the sunlit hair? Faith’s life is full of steamy, erotic, passionate, sometimes rough sex. Faith of Elysia is a passionate alien female, genetically modified to appear and test as entirely human. She is now on a new mission; one of her making. She seeks to find herself, and to fulfill her ache to belong to a worthy male; A dominate male of immense power that requires a softer, submissive female to round off his sharp edges. Faith is this female. Who will be the male she eventually surrenders too?

*****DISCLAIMER: My stories are fun, sexy, erotic, naughty, comedic, highly inappropriate pieces of fiction. They are not masterpieces of literature. Often, vapid, vain, unbelievable, two-dimensional and fictional characters are portrayed. As hard as I try, there will always be errors. I'm an Indie author and I try to put out the best product possible, but if you expect perfection in grammar and punctuation, this title is not for you. My stories are the most unique you will ever read, but there will always be easily found imperfection in everything I do. If you find offense in politically incorrect dialog, terribly naughty language, and obscene situations, then again, this is not a read for you. No grammar Nazi’s, no prudes; no humans below the age of 18. This is a work of fiction and the author is unapologetic about its tasteless content or the few errors you will certainly find. None of the characters portrayed are remotely close to anyone in real life; living or dead. Werewolves, Demons, the world of the Fae, or immortal nymphomaniac aliens, DO NOT exist. Please have fun and enjoy.
BIOGRAPHY Payne Hawthorne is a California native who lives on the north coast in a rural, beach setting with her Corgi and two cats and two horses.
She primarily writes fictional novels, but also blogs non-fiction articles and commentary about her personal life and life lessons. She recently released her first memoir which includes two poetry collections.
She also writes flash/short fiction stories in the erotica genre, and most recently has been dabbling in poetry, prose and spoken word. Everything she produces is self-published under, House of Payne Publishing.
Everything Payne writes, carries a theme of self-discovery and change within the characters or herself. Her favorite themes are unexpected life changes, metaphysical and soul-searching questions, passion and lust, and anything extraordinary, fantasy, Sci-fi and paranormal. All her novels are unique, anti-formula love stories with out of this world characters and personality development.
Much of her poetry is darker, soulful and manifests from her personal life. She tends to look at the difficult side of falling and staying in love with another human. “Love isn’t always rainbows and roses. I like to write about the sometimes ugly side of opening your heart and soul to another.”
Payne hails from a 25 year background in horse training where she lectured, taught, and trained people how to think like a horse. The phycology of a lateral thinking prey animal is opposite of the human/predator species direct line approach, so her work is always unexpected with a mind-set not often heard. All of her novels are sprinkled with great animal moments, and her message, no matter human or animal, is that love should always be the most important ingredient in all interactions and relationships.
Her tag line reads: Meticulous Anarchy. Adult fiction author for the intelligent reader. Dessert for your soul, and Fairy Tales for adults.
She has 10 novels in print and digital, and four are available as audio books. All are available on Amazon or directly through her, with personal signatures and custom bookmarks and other swag created for each story.
On her webpage she shares short stories and poetry/prose and also blogs about her life lessons.
