Featured Author Mistral Dawn and book Taken by the Huntsman

Featured Author Blog Post-Mistral Dawn and Book Taken By The Huntsman


Mistral is a 30-something year old independent author who is currently living in the SE United States with her cats. When she isn’t writing, she works in a hospital and with a cat rescue group. She says, “Please, spay and neuter your pets,” which I whole-heartedly agree with! She’s also attending graduate school, so the fact that she’s published a book with everything else in her busy life is amazing!

She says the inspiration for her book, Taken by the Huntsman (a fantasy/romance) came to her in a dream after a quite spirited debate with a friend over politics, the “nature of consent”, and other volatile issues. The book was released in September of 2014, and is available on Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, iTunes, Kobo, and Google play. She classifies it as 18+ for mature subject matter.

Taken by the Huntsman introduces the nature of consent as well as other questions about right and wrong. She doesn’t intend to browbeat the reader, but instead make them thing about and question their own views. She wants the reader to have that “Hmmm” moment after reading her book.

The cover art was illustrated by Erin Dameron-Hill. Taken by the Huntsman is a romantic fantasy. “Discarded and ignored by those around her for most of her life, Cassie is a lonely human woman struggling to find her place in the world and meaning in her life. Cadeyrn is the Erlking, the leader of the Wild Hunt, a hundreds of thousands of years old Fae who has always known his purpose. He has spent his entire long existence tracking the criminals of Fairie and punishing them for their crimes.

“While hunting for the murderer of a child who has escaped to Earth Cadeyrn comes across Cassie and realizes that she is the one that the great mother goddess has designated as his soul mate. He kidnaps her and takes her to his fortress in Fairie to protect her from his many enemies. He knows she will be angry and that he’ll have to work to earn her trust, but he finds his task to be even more challenging that he had thought it would be due to Cassie’s difficulty in opening her heart. Will Caderyn be able to convince Cassie that the bond between them is real and earn her love?” ∞∞ Quoted from listing on Amazon.

Taken by the Huntsman is currently rated at 4.8* at Amazon. One reviewer says: “Can’t wait to see what comes next from Mistral Dawn! I loved how this story utilized mythological creatures… …to create a romance story that keeps the reader… …wanting more.” Lalo writes: “This story reminded me of fairy tales I read as a child, except the love scenes are…pretty hot. The story is beautiful.”

“A lively, inventive story. Adult enough for the erotic moments to be engaging but still with a touch of whimsical magic…” says Robert Clevidence.

And yes, if this is interesting to you, she’s already writing the sequel to Taken by the Huntsman which she hopes will eventually become a series! So keep in touch and find out what she might come up with next! This will be the story of Uaine, the Fairie’s Summer Court prince, and Veronica who is a human petty thief and con artist. These characters are united by a magical bond created by Fairie’s great mother goddess. The first chapter is posted on her Facebook page.
