“Full of sex, magic, and turmoil...poetic and utterly beautiful. I can't remember the last time a book made me stop and think, wow.” --Meredith Wild, #1 New York Times bestselling author
DUTCH is Madhuri Pavamani’s first book in a stunning new, suspenseful urban fantasy series that will take you on a wild ride full of danger, love, sex, and magic.
I've spent years holed up in the deepest, darkest parts of the city, fighting to keep Death and her Poochas from crossing the dead back to the living. My skill with a blade is bested only by my menace, my despair, my anguish - the strongest weapons I yield.
Then I meet Juma Landry and it all goes to hell.
She is beauty and love and sex and light, everything I am not. And she makes me want things I haven’t desired in years. But the monsters of my life, the evil lurking in the dark corners of my soul, those places craven and vile, bind me to a past I cannot shake free. As the most skilled Keeper for the Gate, nothing and no one can prevent me from excelling at a job I never wanted. I do it because it is my legacy, a fate I cannot outrun, but when Juma becomes my next assignment, each of her nine lives to be ended by my hand, I must decide: the legacy I never wanted or the love I don’t deserve.
"Ms. Pavamani's DUTCH is the perfect melange of poetry, fantasy and rebellious raunch. Absolutely addictive!" --Helen Hardt, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author
"Dark. Sensual. Unputdownable. I devoured this book and can't wait for the next!"--Kate Baxter, author of The Untamed Vampire
Publisher's Note: Dutch is a scorchingly sexy, romantic urban fantasy, full of forbidden love, romance and very hot love scenes.
This Series is a "must read"
Madhuri has a style all her own. She's in love with long sentences. Ones that twist and pull you through a range of emotions. All of it has a poetry that seduces you through the intricate and enthralling story of Dutch and Juma.
Dutch is the very epitome of mad, bad and good to know. He's that look from a guy at the far end of the bar. The one cast in shadows with a dirty smile.
Juma is EVERYTHING. She's sex and intelligence and has a mind and body made for filth and world domination.
This is the best kind of erotic urban fantasy. One that engages your emotions as well as your intellect and your sense of adventure. I can tell that she loves these characters. We are so close to them in their intimate moments that you can feel their breath and all the delicious tension between their bodies. And through them you see the gritty dichotomy of the New York we know and the one just beyond the pale in Dutch, The Keeper Series #1.
