About the Author
Cheyenne McCray is an award winning, New York Times and USA Today Best Selling author who is a rare native Arizonan but refuses to be put behind glass as an endangered species.
In her spare time she loves to torture characters, whether they’re misbehaving or not, and kill off deserving individuals. She also totally gets off on blowing things up. All fictionally, of course. She’d rather chew glass than write sweet and sugary. Give her a hideous demon or particularly nasty villain to slay any day.
Cheyenne enjoys creating stories of love, suspense, and redemption...in some cases. She enjoys building worlds her readers can get lost in. Hopefully they’ll find their way out, but stranger things have been known to happen.
If you would like to find out what odd and unusual things Cheyenne is up to these days, cruise her website any time, take a look at the bizarrely normal yet strange FAQs, and even drop her a line or two. Just not too hard. Those things hurt. CheyenneMcCray.com

Alexi O'Brien is searching for her twin sister, who mysteriously went missing a year ago. The last place Alexi would have thought to look is within an alternate universe found by stepping through the mirror and right into the arms of a man. However, the world she has found herself in apparently is the realm of a pushy, overbearing man, no wait he is a tiger now who drew her into the mirror. King Darronn is the Rules of the Kingdom of Spades and lives in the alternate world where he rules equally with his other three brothers. When he went in search of his mate, the cards led him to Alexi. When Darronn found her, there was nothing that would stop him from bringing her to his world, alternate universe or not. Darronn rules by command and is used to everyone following his orders, which Alexi clearly states she is not going to do. No way is he telling her what to do despite how amazing Darronn looks, or how her desire is overrunning any logical thought process. Too quickly, they both learn that you do not always have to be the masters of your passion all the time sometimes you can let your mate control the rhythm of your existence. Can Alexi find her sister and convince Darronn that they are equal partners? Only time and love will tell. Yikes, this book is a wonderful experience! The readers will never stop be amazed by the detailed descriptions of the location and the dynamics of the characters. Readers will be thrilled to go to a place where passion is as important as dominance.
Great story about teaching a man learning that he doesn't have to be dominant in all things, esp. not when it comes to the woman he loves.
I really enjoyed this book and all the characters! This book was filled with passion and the relationship between Alexi & Darronn was really entertaining. I can't wait to read the next book in the series!
In Tarok, King of Spades Darronn still fears for his subjects though twin hopes recently appeared. The mate of High King Jarron, Queen Alice of Hearts became pregnant and gave birth to werecubs. However, the hope that the end of Mikaela of Malachad's reign of sorcery terror is over has been muted by no other birthing in the four kingdoms. Meanwhile In San Francisco Alice's twin sister attorney Alexi O'Brien has given up her life of one night stands in a futile search to find her missing sister who vanished a year ago. Believing she is his mate, Darronn abducts Alexi taking her to Tarok; where he as a Dom orders her to be his Sub just like her sibling. When she scorns his advances, he assumes she needs time to adjust to his dominance over her and fails to take her to see her sister. Although she enjoys his sexual control, independent and feisty Alexi suspects her so called mate hides something from her, which she deduces involves Alice. This is a wonderful reprint of the second erotic Wonderland E-book (by Cheyenne McCray). Once again the story line is character driven by the heroine who enjoys her BDSM escapades with Daronn, but remains dedicated to her cause and when she learns the truth she will be pissed off enough that her beloved better keep his penis inside of armor. Readers will appreciate this enticing erotic fairy tale of S&M sex under the city. Harriet Klausner
