Notorious Nephilim Series by Carolyn Rosewood

The twelve heroes of the Notorious Nephilim series were part of a larger group of Nephilim sent to earth during the Prohibition era to persuade humans to find more peaceful ways of opposing booze, but our heroes were having too much fun getting drunk and seducing women. They found they especially enjoyed ménage – two of them with one woman.

As punishment for ignoring their mission, they were cast down to earth for the remainder of eternity. As a constant reminder of their sins, no human woman would love only one of them. Instead she’d fall in love with two of them. Because of bigamy laws they could never marry her, but they’d have to share her, and she had to agree to this arrangement. This was the only way they could become mortal and have a chance to earn redemption. If she didn’t choose to stay with them under this arrangement, they’d remain Nephilim and be free to indulge in their vices without any satisfaction.

In retaliation for their harsh punishment, the twelve started Lilith’s Playground, an exclusive resort in Fox Lake Illinois. It soon gained a reputation as catering to its guests’ every desire. But one by one they grew bored and longed for more than temporary flings.

Book One – Spanked By An Angel – takes place in contemporary times. Abigail, the heroine of SBAA, is a guest at the resort. When she falls for two of the owners – Zach and Emmett – she gets more than she bargained for. But will her past catch up with her before she can find true love in their arms? This book is available at Siren-Bookstrand and other distributors.

Book Two – Seducing The Chambermaid – goes back to the beginnings of the resort when mob bosses ruled Chicago and speakeasies were all the rage. This book takes place in 1936 and tells the story of the first two Nephilim to choose a mortal life – Leo and Andras. When newly hired chambermaid Blair is caught stealing jewelry from a guest, Leo and Andras make her pay off the debt in their beds. But Blair has a secret that might ruin their business and get her killed. This book will be released by Siren-Bookstrand on August 14 2012.

Book Three – Tempted By Two Angels – takes place in 1943. Caleigh has been hired to sing in the nightclub at Lilith’s Playground and seduces two of the owners, Hugh and Sterling. But Caleigh is used to running through men like water. Can she give her heart away to two men? This book is scheduled for release by Siren-Bookstrand on September 19 2012.

Book Four – Her Wanton Ways – takes place in 1952. Joelle has broken off her engagement to a social climbing politician from Chicago. While on a wild vacation at the resort, she falls for two of the owners – Blade and Cristian. But what happens when her ex-fiancé comes looking for her, and decides to target the resort to make a name for himself?

Book Five – Private Lessons – returns to contemporary times. Paige takes music lessons from two owners, Reeve and Niko, but gets instruction in more than chords and composition.

Book Six – Dangerous Desires – also takes place in contemporary times. Sofia is running from a crooked cop and answers an ad for a cocktail waitress at the resort, thinking it’s the perfect place to hide out. Demetrius and Gregory – the last two owners to remain Nephilim – will either save the resort at this woman’s hands, or ruin it when her ex catches up with her.
