Ryk Xander | A Character Profile

Ryk (pronounced Rake) Xander…mmmm…Ryk….He’s all kinds of yummy. He’s the fantasy that many women (and maybe even some men) have. He’s the seductive, swoon-worthy hero you can’t help but fall in love with. His name was chosen with care: Ryk means powerful ruler, while Xander means defender of mankind. Yes, he is definitely a powerful defender!

Here’s Tora’s description of Ryk:

piercing eyes that seemed to burn through me and a face sculpted by angels on a very good day of high cheekbones, a strong jawline, straight nose, and full sensuous lips I was sure could make a woman scream.

...his eyes were a deep sapphire blue ringed by long, thick, black lashes. Mmm, bedroom eyes.

He wore a tailored, silk suit that probably cost more than what I made in a year.

He’s also an enigmatic businessman who’s hard to figure out. What is he, exactly? How long has he been around? What’s up with his mood swings?

He cares for Tora, though she does exasperate him at times. He might even love her, but love is an emotion he’s not quite ready to feel yet. Rather, he’s happy to stay in the background, there for her when she needs him, which seems to be often.

We all need a rock like Ryk at times.

With a murderous beast on her heels and a conniving daemon who wants to use her for his own means, Tora Hayden’s main objective is to keep herself and those she cares about alive.

After meeting an enigmatic businessman who possibly suffers from florid psychosis, Tora is propelled into the world of the supernatural. She’s forced to believe the mythical world exists when she’s brutally attacked by a savage fiend intent on annihilating her family line for reasons unbeknownst to her. With the assistance of the psychotic businessman, along with a gorgeous manwhore whom Tora swore to never date but ends up doing just that, she discovers her seventy-years-dead great-grandmother was actually an otherworldly warrioress.

In an effort to beat the murderous beast at its own game, Tora chooses to take on her deceased great-grandmother’s powers to gain immortality and supernatural strength.

During the transfer of powers, something goes wrong: she unwittingly releases a daemon who’s been cursed to his own realm for enslaving the fiend and working towards enslaving all factions. Now, she not only has a murderous beast on her heels but a conniving daemon who’s loose and wants to use her for his own means.
