All right. Straight away, I have to let readers know that King Ellie is an author that knows how to apply some heat to a plot in a way that makes one cringe and tingle with excitement at the same time.
King Ellie discovered her love for dark romance through reading. As she read more, she found that it was the genre for her and decided to own it. I mean, all of it. She did not come to play.
When writing antiheroes and characters typically classified as villains, she tries to show how hurt, heartbroken males can love hard. The author explains:
The heroines get a chance to be loved deeply and only by the antiheroes. Love isn’t always just black and white… it’s a spectrum of color.
King Ellie is one of a few authors who served as my introduction into dark romance. Much more than the bodice rippers of old romance times, her work encourages readers to consider how the unsettling mixture of sensuality, kink and depravity simultaneously disturb and titillate our senses.
