Sweet Fantasy Romance


by multi-published, award winning, bestselling 

Australian Author Phoenix Johnson

The beautiful cover, by the talented and lovely Fiona Jayde!

Persephone takes her life and heart into her own hands when she meets and follows a mysterious stranger on a sweet summer day. However, tragedy strikes, and her lover, the mystifying Adrian, begs her as his life fades: Persephone, head to the sea. Honoring his request, she begins a journey where she discovers her true heritage and finds the family she always dreamed of. Persephone almost finds peace and happiness until her past catches up. She is not about to give up, however, and is determined to obey Adrian’s dying wish. 

But what is waiting for her at the shore? Will she find her destiny, or lose everything she had fought so hard to find? Can she become the Witch that her true parents wanted her to be, or will she succumb to the Darkness? 


The fallen angel sat shivering on the cold, hard rocks while the waves crashed around her, roaring their fury at her. She didn’t know where she was, nor did she remember the events leading up to her arrival in this chilly, uninviting place. The icy, salty spray clung to the red feathers of her wings, making flight close to impossible. She had a feeling that she was supposed to be here, as though she was being punished. So she sat, huddled over and shuddering against the assault of the ocean on her pale skin. Maybe, if she could remember exactly what had happened she could figure out how to escape to a warmer place. She closed her eyes, took a few deep breaths, and sobbed as the fog in her mind continued to hide her memories from her. It was hopeless.


"This book is filled with tears and courage. The story flows so thoroughly you won't want to step outside the pages within this book." (Mirana, Goodreads, 5 stars)

"No spoilers, read the blurb then read the story and you won't be disappointed.

It was an original story and I laughed and cried along with the characters. It had a beautiful ending and such a feel good moment." (Leanne, Goodreads, 5 stars)

"I have to say that I absolutely LOVED this book! I could not put it down! I read it in two days, but of course my schedule doesn't allow me to read much. I probably could have read this in one day it was so good." (Misty, Goodreads, 5 stars)

Persephone is available in ebook at All Romance eBooksAmazonNaughty Nights PressSmashwords,Barnes & NobleKobo, and on iTunes, as well as in paperback at Amazon, CreateSpace, and Barnes & Noble. 

About the Author
Phoenix Johnson has always been intrigued by the written word. Even when she was a young girl, she usually had her nose stuck in at least one book, and her need to read would drive her to peruse the back of the same cereal box each morning at breakfast.
Paranormal and fantasy captured her heart, with tales about dragons, magic, and fanciful creatures sweeping her away to a wonderful new world where she felt she truly belonged. While she dabbled in writing while in primary school, it wasn’t until high school that she decided she should try her hand at writing her own book, and even gave poetry a try.
She wandered away from writing for a few years, but was soon encouraged to return and, within months of picking up the proverbial pen, Phoenix’ first story, The Wolf In The Neighborhood, was accepted for publication by Naughty Nights Press. While working on the rest of the Wolf Smitten Trilogy, Phoenix decided to take on a university degree, and is now in the final stretch of her Bachelor of Art’s degree in Professional Writing and Publishing, with plans to continue on to her Master’s degree.
In early 2015, Phoenix was thrilled to discover she’d made two Top 5 lists with three entries in the 2015 Easychair Bookshop Awards. In June, it was announced she had placed first in Best Paranormal withOnce Bitten, Twice Shy, the second instalment in her Wolf Smitten Trilogy, while The Wolf In The Neighborhood and Wolf Smitten placed third in their respective categories of Best Paranormal and Best Series. With her inclusion in the Alphas on the Prowl Box Set in 2015, Phoenix hit the top 100 bestsellers lists across numerous distributors, number 1 bestseller on several Amazon lists, and this was quickly followed by the announcement of her achievement of number 1 bestseller for her publisher, Naughty Nights Press, for the full second quarter of 2015. The awards and achievements have only served to strengthen her ambitions, and she is now aiming at reaching the bestseller lists for USA Today and New York Times.
Phoenix has been working hard to make 2015 her year, and has been busy organizing paranormal anthology Twisted Tales with seven other authors. Its release at the end of June was greatly anticipated, and she is extremely excited to see where her writing career takes her next.
