Picking the Ending by Decadent Kane


A Hint of cayenne was a challenging book for me to write. Cayenne was so wild and hot headed I had to find the right ways to challenge her. Originally cayenne didn’t end with the drow. Actually Cayenne ended with her tied to a tree covered in honey. It was quickly pointed out to me by my good friend that while it made a good ending, it wasn’t a finished story and left the readers wanting, which is what I originally wanted to do, but after careful consideration, Cayenne’s sister gave me some great ideas and I followed through with them. I think it made for a much more satisfying ending.

I don’t generally feel endings should always end ‘happily’ but I do always want to satisfy my readers. Endings that stop abruptly, or leave a reader hanging out there too far, often irritate readers, and that is the last thing I wanted to do with cayenne’s story. She had such a unique tale and I wanted readers to leave her in good graces.

Heat flares between the two despite their differences, which infuriates Cayenne to no end. Hawthorn wants to wring Cayenne’s neck, right after having his way with her. However, his gambling demons come back to haunt them both. The dark drow don’t take kindly to having someone welch on their debts.

An elfess in human form, Decadent enjoys dipping her fingers into the human realm where she took pen to paper and began the tales of the trouble with elves. Her obsessions include reading, Dean Winchester, and honey.

She will devour your soul with glimpses of the feral ridden drow elves, with their dark skin and soul consuming. She’ll sneak morsels of naughty thoughts to you via goblins, and seduce you into stepping inside the elven realm where females disappear when lust takes over among other elfish troubles.

Beware the sprites.

Follow the wisps.

But never look a drow elf king in the eyes…

  1. Thanks for hanging out with us today, Decadent!

  2. Lisa, Thank you for having me

  3. Sometimes endings leave you hanging so you’ll read the next in the series, but it’s best to tidy things up as much as possible. Often so much time passes between one book and the next, the reader forgets what the ending of the previous one was.

  4. This sounds like an exciting book. I would love to win it. I do hate cliff hangers, but if it’s good then I will follow through.
