Desire to Fall by Shona Husk ♥ Book Blast & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Sci-Fi Romance)



Kya Hawl is an architect on the Precinct One redevelopment, a prestigious and contentious project in the city-state of Velli. While she is happy with her part-time female lover, Judge Elmi Chadee, she wants more. She wants a family and children, for that she needs two men willing to put their life on the line to breed.

Tref Xant and his partner Dru Macon seem like the right guys; however, Tref has secrets and Dru is about to deploy to Precinct One, one of the roughest precincts in Velli. The redevelopment can’t come soon enough. Tref would like to see the placed burned to the ground. But even that wouldn’t be able to erase his memories of growing up there.

With Dru away Tref finds himself falling for Kya. Jealousy sparks between the men. A triad can never form as Dru wants Elmi and she has sworn off unions after her sister ran away to join the Terrin Sect.

As riots erupt and the redevelopment is threatened Dru realizes he has to fight for what he wants--something Tref learned long time ago. A four-way union--while unusual--would work. But will the women agree when they learn of Tref’s past?



I get asked where I get my ideas from all the time. The short answer is everywhere. The longer answer is that it depends on the book. For Desire to Fall there were two ideas that got together and did those things that ideas do while I’m asleep. They made a story.

The first idea was a simple one. I like reading ménage stories, but I wanted there to be a biological reason for it. I wanted ménage relationships to be part of society.

The second idea was a little more random. In Australia we have something called tall poppy syndrome. It’s not an attractive cultural trait. But basically if someone grows too tall them there is great delight taken in either cutting them down or seeing them fall.

What if people were literally being cut down…

What if they had wings and people were clipping them…

What if only the women had wings…

What if they needed male blood (and lots of it) to get pregnant?

How would society work if the women could fly and the men couldn’t?

By the time I’d answered those what ifs the world was forming. A place where bisexuality was normal, where not everyone chose to breed because it was dangerous. And where if people want something badly enough they don’t mind breaking a few wings to get there.

(This information was originally found here)



“Mmm.” She pressed against him; her wings opened to encircle them. “I want to sink my teeth into you.” The words tumbled out even though she had no right to say them, or ask him to make that sacrifice. He wasn’t hers. They weren’t that close.

He groaned and nuzzled against her neck. His teeth pressed against her skin but didn’t break it. She wanted him too. She wanted him so much at that moment. It was like she was solstice crazy. Those old stories suddenly took shape and had a meaning she’d never realized before. The Huntress had never meant to kill her lover, but she hungered for him and had lost control.

People walked past, laughing, whistling.

Kya closed her eyes and took a shaky breath that filled her lungs with his scent. It was sharp and sweet—perfect for him. She placed her hands on his chest, let her fingers splay over the muscle. She had to regain control. The summer night thrummed in her blood. Unrequited hunger and lust burned in her body.

Had she ever wanted anyone quite so badly?

If she tasted him, would she go too far?

No, she was in control of her body. She was not a slave to biology. She wouldn’t kill her lover—he wasn’t her lover. She should just go home. She would not fall victim to solstice lust the way so many people did, and she most certainly didn’t want any children yet. But as his hands cupped her butt and brought her closer so she could feel him hard against her belly, she wasn’t so sure she could resist. Or that she even wanted to.

“Have a taste; go to bed with me on your tongue.” His voice was rough. His hands were still on her butt as he moved against her with unspoken promise.

Why do you write? 

Writing fiction is a really fun process, from the inception of an idea to the fleshing out of a character! I love immersing myself in creating alternate worlds and making the impossible plausible.

What do you like to write?

I enjoy the creative process and challenges involved in writing fantasy romance and paranormal romance. While some stories are hotter than others, I always like to end with a happily ever after.

Where do your ideas come from?

I draw my inspiration from all kinds of situations and people. Sometimes a dream may spark a workable idea, other times it might be a news story or a historical concept or a myth that I think would be fun to explore through story telling.

How did you begin your career as a writer?

I was always been a big reader but my writing career really got started while I was on maternity leave with my first child and found myself with lots of spare time. I've always had a talent for creative writing wrote bits and pieces of fiction throughout high school. As an adult I discovered romance novels, from there I discovered how to combine the best elements of fantasy and romance into my stories, and the rest - as they say - is history.

What advice could you give to aspiring authors?

I would advise aspiring authors just to write; to write a lot and often and never be afraid to try different things.
