Meet the Author

I am an author, translator and passionate book lover. I write romance, fantasy, paranormals and mystery.


When does an avid reader become a writer?


I love books. I always did, since I was old enough to learn to read, and my passion for stories – funny or tragic, dark or phantastic, sad or amusing – has grown ever since. My love for romances started back in my early teens when I first read a Kathleen E. Woodiwiss „The Flame and the Flower“. I got hooked, and over the next years I devoured every historical romance I could get my hands on – until today, my all-time favourite is Jude Deveraux' „A Knight in Shining Armor“. Jane Austen, the Victorian gothic classics and graphic novels like „Elfquest“ influenced me, too, but I also like fantasy, mystery, thrillers, historicals and poetry.


With time, I started to think about the books I had read, starting to write alternate endings or additional scenes. The step to write my own story wasn't too far from there.


I always wanted to write myself. Over the years, I have written many short stories, fan fiction (Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Hellboy and others) and articles for magazines. But the wish to write my own romance was always there, in the back of my head.


At age 20, while still at college, I was lucky enough to get a job as a translator of romance books, mostly historicals. Translating made me learn a lot about the structure of a book, about good and bad writing and what the reader looks for in a good story.


With the rise of paranormal romances following Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series, I finally encountered a genre that had everything I ever wanted in a story: Romance, supernatural and fantasy elements, and more passionate love scenes than in your usual romance. „Bound to the Prince“ began as a small story about an elven warrior who has been living in exile for many years, hidden in underground caves beneath the world of humans. Never in my wildest dreams had I imagined it to grow into a full-length romance, but here it is, and I hope you enjoy reading as much as I loved writing it.

Where do I begin? Bound To The Prince is a very HOT and STEAMY read!! Elathan is the elven prince and our tortured hero. He is VERY Alpha *heart thuds against chest* and just over the top SEXY! He absolutely despises ALL humans. But when he sees one particular human woman, Igraine...he simply can't help himself! (Or rather, he DOES help himself...to her *winks* He makes a quick decision and snatches her right off the streets and brings her back to his world. She is to be his slave of pleasure. She is to fulfill his every need and desire ;) *Oooh, pick me, pick me!!* Igraine is catapulted into Elathan's world. There is SO much for her to take in and get used to! Elathan must "toughen" Igraine up so she will be strong enough to survive in his world. Heck, he needs to toughen her up just to survive the sex!! His world is beautiful and dangerous at the same time. It is full of mythical creatures, a true fantasy world. A world that humans could only dream of or hear about in fairy tales. There are fairies, mermaids, gargoyles, elves and other fasinating creatures. The descriptions of this world are painted beautifully and vividly through the authors words. She is a true master at world building. The adventures are as exciting and unpredictable as the romance is erotic and errrr......stimulating ;) This author leaves NOTHING to our own imaginations *wipes sweat from brow.* If you are looking for an amazing erotic fantasy full of heart pounding adventure and magnificent characters full of breathtaking passion, you simply MUST read Bound To The Prince! I'm SO happy to have "discovered" Deborah Court! She is most certainly an author I will be keeping my eye on! I'm very much looking forward to the next installment in this series!
