*** Top 10 ***


★ Millenia Black's Top 10 Book Villains! ★


Right off the bat, I must give a dishonorable mention to Nurse Ratched in ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST by Ken Kesey. Needless to say that woman had absolutely no business being a nurse. At. all.


#10. The Wicked Witch of the West (THE WIZARD OF OZ by L. Frank Baum)

It's bad enough that she was out for revenge against poor little Dorothy — whose house only happened to land on her sister — but to go after Toto as well? "I'll get you, my pretty — and your little dog, too!" Now that's just 60 shades of wicked!


#9. Jadis, The White Witch (THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE by C.S. Lewis)

Killing Christmas? Using magic to terrorize the innocent? Turning your enemies into stone? Yeah, I'd say the White Witch is definitely one of the most cruel and heartless bad girls of all time!


#8. Annie Wilkes (MISERY by Stephen King)

Who could ever forget this (lovingly?) violent and obsessively deranged super fan?? She's every writer's worst nightmare!


#7. Constantin Demiris (MEMORIES OF MIDNIGHT by Sidney Sheldon)

Here's an unforgettable Greek shipping tycoon who stopped at nothing in passionate and deadly vengeance against Noelle Page and Larry Douglas! Even though they may have deserved it. Sort of.

Deliciously jealous, spiteful and vindictive, Constantin Demiris is one of the most sinister characters Sidney Sheldon ever wrote!


#6. Simon Legree (UNCLE TOM'S CABIN by Harriet Beacher Stowe)

A mean and nasty slave owner who was cruel and inhumane at best. Absolutely no need to go on.


#5. Hannibal Lecter (RED DRAGON by Thomas Harris)

An unimaginable sociopath of the highest order! Hannibal Lecter is the complete embodiment of a cunning and sadistic serial killer. Run. Run now!


#4. Norman Bates (PSYCHO by Robert Bloch)

Formaldehyde, anyone? Norman Bates is truly the most psycho of this entire list! A serial killer who murdered his own mother, kept the body (eww!), dressed up like her and spoke in her voice — all without knowing he was even doing it! Yikes.


#3. Nils Bjurman (THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO by Stieg Larsson)

What an especially despicable and corrupt human being Nils Bjurman is! Talk about abuse of power. Bjurman works for the Swedish government and forces the wards he's assigned to be legal guardian of to perform sexual acts on him before they can have access to their own money! Yuck. But fear not: Bjurman meets the right ward in Lisbeth Salander...


#2. Iago (OTHELLO by William Shakespeare)

In a word? Iago's sly, so very sly. He's the one you won't see coming at all — Othello sure didn't. Iago's so full of hate that he tricked Othello into believing his wife was cheating on him, then proceeded to manipulate and scheme ad nauseam until Othello finally killed his own wife! Tsk, tsk, tsk.


#1. Baron Danglars (THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO by Alexandre Dumas)

With sheer duplicitousness and cunning, Danglars has the honor of landing in the #1 spot on my list!

As the mastermind behind an unprecedented revenge saga, Danglars orchestrated the false accusations and lies that falsely imprisoned an innocent young man and robbed him of fourteen years of his life! Through the character of Baron Danglars, we not only learn the true depths of evil, but the heights of redemption — and we also get to experience the true meaning of life!

*Release Day Launch* Where Souls Spoil (Bayonet Scars Box Set, Volume I) by J.C. Emery @jc_emery @InkSlingerPR




Where Souls Spoil
Bayonet Scars Box Set, Volume I
by
J.C. Emery





*** Synopsis ***


THIS IS THE END OF THE BEGINNING...

The only thing stronger than the bond of Forsaken's brotherhood is the strength of the women who fight for their hearts.

In Ride we fell in love with Ryan despite our better judgment and cheered Alex on in her relentless pursuit of his heart. In Thrash we hurt for Nic as she struggled to trust Duke and let him love her. In Rev we saw Grady as both an intense lover and a flawed man trying to be a good father. In Crush we were consumed by the volatility of first love with Jeremy and Cheyenne.

Now, in Vow we see the product of Ryan's love as he searches for something that Alex may not be ready to give - yet.

For a limited time the first half of the Bayonet Scars series is together with Ride, Thrash, Rev, Crush, and Vow plus Where Souls Spoil & Hearts Rot, an exclusive guide to the Forsaken Motorcycle Club and the Bayonet Scars universe.

Love is never more riveting than when it's Forsaken.

Ride
Bayonet Scars #1





*** Synopsis ***


Death comes in Armani. Salvation comes in leather.

Principessa to the Mancuso crime family, Alexandra knows a thing or two about living outside the bounds of the law. Suffocated by the future her father has laid out for her, she makes a choice she can't take back, changing the entire trajectory of her life.

Thrust into the dark and dangerous world of the Forsaken Motorcycle Club for her own protection, Alex finds herself faced with the last thing she needs right now: the man of her dreams. He's sex in leather, the devil incarnate, and one hell of a kisser. But he's also off-limits. Ryan Stone can be her friend, but he's forbidden to be her lover.

Third-generation Forsaken, Ryan knows nothing other than life on two wheels, and he wouldn't have it any other way. He enjoys the many privileges that come with the patch, and the only laws he recognizes are the ones set-forth by his club. That is, until who he wants more than anything isn't allowed on the back of his bike — or in his bed. Balancing his desire for her body, and need to keep her safe, Ryan tries to keep Alex at a distance. Finally having made a choice for herself, she's done hearing the word "no" and will push boundaries even Ryan himself doesn't dare cross.

Love is never more tempting than when it's forbidden.

Thrash
Bayonet Scars #2





*** Synopsis ***


Loneliness suffocates the heart. Acceptance breaks down walls.

As a Lost Girl to the Forsaken Motorcycle Club, Nicole Whelan knows how to party. She's not cut-out for relationships and her life is way too complicated for anything more than casual encounters. But one night when she falls into Duke's bed at the clubhouse, he sees something in her that he can't let go of — no matter how many times she tries to run.

Having been left to raise her teenage brother, Jeremy, she's already got her hands full and isn't looking for anymore complications. But Duke's just watched his best friend fall for the only girl he couldn't have, and then almost lose her so shortly after, shaking him to his core. Faced with his own loneliness, he's more determined than ever to break down Nic's walls and show her that he can be good for her; but he's got a bad track record and she's got a bad temper. Changing his ways isn't easy when he's not sure what he's even changing for.

The violence and turmoil are at an all-time high, and Forsaken is in a vulnerable place when a twist of fate breathes new life into the club. It's a much-needed beacon of hope for the embattled biker family, even if everyone's not exactly on board. With Duke and Nic's relationship already on shaky ground, and something even more important at stake, the Forsaken Motorcycle Club will fight like hell to keep their family together and whole.

Love is never more precious than when it's new.

Rev
Bayonet Scars #3





*** Synopsis ***


With the looming threat from the Mancuso Crime Family, the Forsaken Motorcycle Club is preparing for a war that could destroy them. Grady, the club's Sergeant-at-Arms, knows that love makes you weak, and he has zero interest in adding to his liabilities – especially now. He's already got his teenage daughter who keeps him on his toes and a beef within the club that could fracture his relationship with a fellow brother for good.

For Holly Mercer, her life is finally getting on track and the last thing she wants is trouble from her hometown's resident outlaws. Keeping her nose clean is easier said than done, when suddenly she finds herself embroiled in club business. Holly might like the idea of being with a real-life bad boy, but even being in the same room with tough-as-nails Grady flusters her.

When Holly inadvertently finds herself on Mancuso's radar, she has two choices: trust that Grady will protect her, or continue to refuse the club's help. Both roads are dangerous, but only one has the chance to damage her beyond repair.

Love is never more dangerous than when it can destroy you.

Crush
Bayonet Scars #4





*** Synopsis ***


Young love is always perfect. Until it's not.

Cheyenne Grady is a total daddy's girl to her bad-ass father, the Sergeant-at-Arms of the Forsaken Motorcycle Club. She's funny, and kind, and she just wants that deep, earth-shattering love like her dad has with her school secretary, Holly. But Cheyenne's been looking in the wrong direction, because the only good that can come from the way she looks at Jeremy Whelan is a lesson in heartbreak.

Jeremy always wanted to prospect for the Forsaken Motorcycle Club and wear the same patch as his father. When a life-long dream becomes reality, Jeremy realizes that the outlaw lifestyle is not for the faint of heart. Nor is it easy on relationships. He wants to be a good man, but temptation is everywhere.

Cheyenne is beautiful, and strong, and exactly what Jeremy could have forever. As long as he doesn't screw it up.

Love is never more powerful than the first time.
