Desires Unleashed is the first novel in the riveting, highly-addictive and sexually charged Knights of the Darkness Chronicles.

When a grisly decapitated corpse pops up on a Chicago Street, drained of blood, the highly-trained, government-funded special police force assigned two of their best detectives to the case. S.U.I.T. Detectives Warren Davis and Matthew Eric delve deep into their investigation to discover just who or what is leaving mutilated bodies in public places. They soon realize that the killer or killers is one step ahead of them and if they are going to stop the menace before another innocent human is viciously attack, they are going to need help.

Natasha Hemingway liked her life just the way it was... normal and supernatural free. The vampires and shape-shifters were just where she wanted them to be--far away from her. All was going well until an unfortunate accident landed her in the hospital. It was then that she discovered she had an ability that could help her save countless lives.

All of a sudden, she finds herself thrust into the dangerous and alluring world of the supernatural and into the arms of two very sexy and deadly vampires.

> From the Author Muse:
Hello, my name is Nicole and unfortunately, D.N. Simmons can’t make it today. She’s tied up…. literally tied up. I wanted to take this opportunity to finally reap the recognition owed to me. Now, D.N.’s been on many interviews, blabbing about how great her series is, how ‘highly entertaining’ and whatnot… and it is, don’t get me wrong. The series is amazing and any urban-fantasy fan would be surely missing out by NOT reading it. But I digress, D.N.’s been patting herself on the back for coming up with the series, and truth be told, it’s me who she should be giving recognition to. Me! I’m her Muse, dammit and I deserve respect! Whenever an interviewer asks her ‘What was your inspiration for the series’, she mentions everything and everyone but ME! Oh, she’s loved vampires and shape-shifters since childhood. Or how about this one; she’s read so many great Urban-fantasy and Paranormal Romance books out there, but they were just missing that spark that ignited her. Well, I’m here to tell you, I’m that ‘spark’.

If it weren’t for me whispering in her ear, giving her ideas on how to make the perfect Urban-fantasy series, SHE’D still be talking about writing one instead of actually doing it! But here I sit, thankless on many interviews. I’m the one who inspired her to create characters so real, they damn near literally step off of the pages and into your lives. They seduce you, humor you, love you as you love them and some, well they’ll terrify you. She didn’t come up with them on her own… that was all me. Oh and did I mention that it was Yours Truly who gave Miss Little It’s All About Me the idea to do away with the usual formula for writing UF/PNR and create a series about characters and not just one main character or couple? Do you know how fun it is to read about the exciting things going on in this series from multiple character point of views? Just ask all the fans of the series, and they’ll tell you, ‘it’s freaking awesome!’.

You know what, I’m sorry. I’ve been stealing her Author Guest Spots ranting and raving and going on and on about how the Knights of the Darkness Chronicles wouldn’t be the series it is today without me. Truth is, D.N. and I, we need each other. These ideas were just floating around in my head with no means to put them to paper. D.N. is my vessel and I’m her inspiration. It’s just… well… a Muse wants to get a little attention every once in a while, ya know? It was nice being here and I’m going to release D.N. now. Have a great day everyone.

D. N. Simmons lives in Chicago IL., with a rambunctious German Shepherd that's too big for his own good and mischievous kitten that she affectionately calls "Itty-bitty". Her hobbies include rollerblading, billiards, bowling, reading, watching television and going to the movies.

She has been nominated at Love Romances and More, winning honorable mention for best paranormal book of 2006. She has won "Author of the Month" at Warrior of Words. She was voted "New Voice of Today" at Romance Reviews and "Rising Star" at Love Romance and More.
