Welcome D. N. Simmons

Desires Unleashed

Desires Unleashed is the first novel in the riveting, highly-addictive and sexually-charged Knights of the Darkness Chronicles. Experience the heart-pounding thrill of the chase in this electrifying page-turner as you uncover the mystery behind the series of gruesome killings that have been terrorizing the citizens of Chicago.

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 shewanted 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.

Original, gritty and sprinkled with just the right amount of humor and wit, the Knights of the Darkness Chronicles will suck you in and take you for a ride you won't forget. You don't want to miss out on this amazing series!

Now for the interview...

Q: Tell me a little bit about yourself. What do you do for fun? 

I enjoy the simple pleasure in life, really. I love going out to the theaters. I enjoy reading a great book or watching a wonderful movie or TV show. I also enjoy dancing and traveling, seeing new places. 

Q:What sets your series a part from the other Urban-Fantasy/Paranormal Romance books? 

Every author has to bring something original to the genre. One thing that you’ll notice immediately is that I broke away from the norm where the story follows one main character/couple. My stories surround my characters and because I don’t have one set character/couple, I have the freedom to create scenarios you won’t find in other paranormal books in my genre. I really wanted to give readers something that was unconventional and highly entertaining. You can have a number of characters to fall in love with because each one is just bursting with personality. One more aspect that you’ll notice about the KOTDC is that it’s multicultural, there’re straight, gay and bisexual characters. I wanted my series, even though it’s set in a fictional world, to reflect people as they are in the real world. I wanted readers to be able to relate to the characters on a more personal level while embarking on adventure after adventure. 

Q: What do you like most about the genre you write in? 

What I love about Urban-Fantasy is the freedom you have. For me, at least I indulge in combining PNR, horror, mystery, erotica and comedy into each book bringing my characters to life. 

Q: Where is your favorite place to write? 

Someplace quiet, where I can listen to music and just let my mind flow. 

Q: What’s your next project? 

I’m currently working on a horror novel that may see itself as a trilogy… we’ll see. 

Q: How do you feel about Dr. Pepper?

Oh, no, a trap question! I really do not like Dr. Pepper. I suppose 23 flavors is a bit too much for me. LOL. I’m more of an ice tea drinker. :D


  1. ah, but do you like sweet or unsweet tea? After living in the south, there is nothing like southern sweet tea!

  2. I'm so sorry, I didn't see this comment.

    I LOVE sweet tea. :D
