Dark, erotic, and psychologically twisted, Tragic Beauty is a spellbinding epic tale that will leave you breathless.

One beauty. Two beasts.
The one who owns her. And the one who wants her.
I was sixteen when I made the deal...when I put my fate in the hands of Shayne McAllister, a man determined to break me. A man with black eyes and a blacker heart, he's been obsessed with me since we were kids. Now it's five years later, and my father has passed...and Shayne's coming to collect his debt.

But before I'm his to break, I see a chance to make a choice for myself, and I take it. I slip away for one night. One dark, stormy night that goes horribly wrong...until Gavin West. Handsome, angry, and haunted by demons, he grants me one messed up, beautiful night that changes everything and spares no one. Because Gavin decides he wants more than just one night...he wants me.

What follows, is darkness. A darkness where secrets will be revealed, blood will be shed, and sacrifices made.

My name is Ava, and this is my story.

(Tragic Beauty is a VERY DARK & TWISTED blend of contemporary romance, psychological thriller, and erotic suspense with graphic and disturbing scenes. It is a story about love and obsession, about hope and despair, but most of all, it is about finding light through the darkness. Trigger warnings.)

Note: Tragic Beauty is Book One in the BEAUTY & THE DARKNESS Trilogy.

"Tragic Beauty encompasses everything a dark romance should be. Iris Ann Hunter has written a gem of a pitch black story of strength and brutal sacrifice entwined in a thorny love story you won't soon forget. I could NOT put this book down!" ~ Gemma James, USA Today Bestselling Author

"A sensational debut from Iris Ann Hunter, a woman who clearly knows her way around a dark romance novel. Full of heat, raw grit, and tangible, intense characters, Tragic Beauty goes way beyond 5-stars for me. I can't wait to read more from this author!" ~ Anita Gray, Amazon Bestselling Author

About the Author

Iris Ann Hunter is a bestselling author of a darker kind of romance. A tortured romantic at heart, she writes a twisted, psychological blend of dark romance, erotica, and suspense. Her books have been called beautiful and depraved, and range from tender to pitch black. Dominance and submission is a common theme and taboo is always fair game.

Before chasing a dream to be a writer, Iris worked with horses, then as a graphic designer. After testing the waters with a few erotic short stories, she fell deeper in love with dark romance and wrote her first novel, Tragic Beauty, which became an Amazon bestseller. Now, thanks to her amazing fans, she gets to write full time.

When she’s not reading or writing, or wandering the dark recesses of her mind while questioning her sanity, you’ll likely find her riding her horse, playing with her dog, or sipping a glass of red wine. Iris lives with her longtime lover in a seaside town along the Southern California coast.
