Lady's Destiny is both Iria and Dezso POV's. Here's a small taste for you to enjoy...

~Excerpt~

Whenever the moon is full and shining at its brightest, I always dream of myself, basking in the colors and brilliance of a rainbow. In these dreams, a man always appears, right as the rainbow disappears. He always walks over to the crystal clear pool of water and strips down to his skin. Baring a perfectly sculpted masterpiece for my eyes to feast upon, appreciate and remember.

Oh, how I yearn to go to

“I did nothing my Lady. But I will always do anything for you. Anything you need, I will provide. Only for you. You are forever my heart…”

An unexpected and unique fantasy world is alive in A.R. Von’s Lady’s Destiny. A colorful landscape inhabited by many types of magical folk, as if the characters of so many imaginations have come together in this one romance.

I found no fault in the author’s use of first person POV, even as she switched between characters. The transitions were executed smoothly

I haven't read a magical erotic romance before but I LOVED Lady's Destiny!

Iria is a rare creature with exceptional beauty who only wants to be with one man. Dezso discovers a magical creature that he's drawn to again and again while his feelings grow with every encounter. However, he carries a dark secret that he wishes never existed.

This book is different and outside the box, which what makes it so great. It has love, good vs evil, magic, fantasy, and of course, some seriously hot scenes. The

This book has to be, by far, the most unique story I have ever read.
It includes a world filled with magic. Good versus Evil. And a unicorn who is in love with a human. They share a connect like no other and when her wish is granted to become a woman to be with him..... their world is turned upside down... for the best, and the worst. It you are into stories that are different and outside the box, I recommend you give Lady's Destiny a try. It's different. It has smokin' hot scenes and will take y

She wishes that she could feel and touch him like that for real but his a man and she is a unicorn so that’s not possible. One day she stays a little longer than she should and Dezso sees her.

All right so let me start off by saying that I’m stretching these four bar’s a little far but I just couldn’t give it a three. I’m sorta shocked but…..well…..I kinda liked this MAGICAL Erotic Romance?!?! Honestly, it’s not normally my thing but well it took me back to middle school and greek mythology.

Iria is a Unicorn and has been dreaming and watching a man in the waterfall. She can see him and she dreams some pretty heated thoughts about him. But it’s only in her dreams…..or maybe…if she cou

Overall Rating: 3.5 Rockin’ ★★★☆

Darkness is growing stronger, weakening the light and killing off what makes the world a beautiful place to live in. Enter a world of fantasy and dreams, passions and temptations. A world where dragons, unicorns, magic and mermaids really do exist.A world where love WILL conquer all!

A.R. Von's depiction of mythical creatures and legends of old is a fresh look at the paranormal. I found myself entranced in the story that the author provided. With so many light hea

I was delightfully surprised when I stumbled upon A.R. Von’s Lady’s Destiny.

First, I have to say that the book’s description captivated me and second, the fact that this book held no vampire or werewolf in sight shocked me to no end for a paranormal since they do seem to dominate the genre.

In Lady’s Destiny, we are thrust into a magical world filled with goddesses, mermaids, dragons, magic folk and unicorns. Such a wonderful recipe for the battle between good and evil or in this case, the dark a

A complimentary copy was given to me by the author in exchange for this reader's honest review.

I'd like to start off with letting y'all know that this book was the first Fantasy/Paranormal read I have ever read from the author. The previous books I've read from A.R. Von have been contemporary romance. And while I'm ok with those types of books, I love my paranormal/fantasy books to the extreme. Yes, you can say it's my favorite genre. So, while delving into this story I was so giddy with joy & r

Written in the first person point of view (POV), this novella tells about a unicorn that dreamed about, and fell in love with, a certain human male. This novel by AR Von has an enchanted and almost surreal feel to it. Vastly different from AR’s zombie novel, Wunder, Lady’s Destiny has no swear words; this sweet romance is as pure as a unicorn with a decidedly naughty side. AR presents both main characters’ point of view and transitions smoothly between them. Side characters have been creatively ...more

I received a complimentary copy from the author for an honest review.

So I had finished this book last month and with all the crazy things going on I am just now getting around to writing my review. I will admit that the writing style was different then what I normally read. So the first couple pages it felt off to me. It didn't take away from the story, it just took a bit to get use to it, but after that it flowed.

Iria and Dezso meet very often but only in dreams and in a particular place: their appointments are very sweet and sensual. In reality, they can not see why Iria is a unicorn. One day, however, she holds more than expected and Dezso can see it. Unfortunately, Than, a poor creature, comes and wants to hurt Iria. To prevent him from seeing her Dezso performs a spell and transformed into a girl and takes her to live with him. Iria is a girl, pure and sweet and try to scratch the darkness in which g

AR Von has the craziest ideas for stories. When reading the description of her books, you will be thinking "What the ****?!" But it is not like that. She has stories of Zombies and shifters. While this stories focuses on a beautiful magical creature and the bond with her mate. A story full of wonder that lurks in the woods. And under the water. And in the bedroom.... love, happiness, and satisfaction. Beyond the doors of their home is turmoil and darkness. Destruction in their path. It is only I ...more

Having already read one of AR Von’s books, I was excited to read Lady’s Destiny and when I saw the cover, both the original and new one, I was hooked, they are both absolutely gorgeous, the synopsis got me wanting to read…..

So I did, I loved the way the story started, characters were great. Two of my favourite fantasy creatures are dragons and unicorns, so with Lady’s Destiny, I was in my element ;). Did have to keep it away from my eldest daughter though,as she also loves dragons ;)

I love Lady Destiny. I love AR Von she has a way of making a book that grabs you and takes you for a ride. If you have read the Wunder series by AR then you know how she can take something and make it amazing. I don't want to give anything away. But just know that there are evil things in this book a unicorn (see who would of thought to do a book where the unicorn is the star?) and the person of her dreams... to find out what is going on read the book it's amazing wonderful..

Love the story, the characters were built upon nicely and looks to be a great beginning to something more...Maybe a book 2? Some may complain about the speed at the beginning, but I felt it was necessary and done well to proceed with the main story.
The formal writing was different for me to read but fit well with the story. I did wish for a little more adventure, but there was a nice mix of love and war.
The story is told in two POVs, and is ADULT ONLY!

"3.5 out of 5 stars! This is a unique mystical novel about good vs. evil, light vs. darkness, and those who hope to restore/keep the balance. At the forefront in the fight, you have Dezso and Iria ...."

Great story! Very interesting. The story has a old days way of speech to me. It has just about every mythical creature u can think of in it. It keeps you interested with all the different twists and turns and all the magic being used. Its pretty cool. Its also got a great amount of romance and erotica in it. A couple of the characters are funny and Dezso and Iria are a great couple. I look forward to finding out what all Cristol can do. I will be looking forward to the next book.

Lady's Destiny

Got as a arc for an honest review. Iria is a unicorn. Denzo is a warlock type with light and a smack of darkness in him due to his parents. He is looking for his true mate. He sees visions of her but never touches her. She touches him but always she has to leave and be a unicorn. She wants more and wants him. That faithful day comes and she had a lot of choices to make. What will she choose and will she do right?

I received this book from the author and from Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock.
> Lady's Destiny is the first book in "Destiny" serIes, but does not end in a cliff hanger. The first scene is very erotic - a meeting between 2 characters in a dream. There is a small surprise in which you do not know who is human and who is not. Once you truly meet the protagonists, Dezso and Iria, the story becomes a fantasy of good versus evil. Humans are introduced at the end as neutral beings and none a
