Demelza Carlton is a USA Today bestselling Australian fantasy, romance, and thriller author. She is the author of more than 60 novels, which have sold more than two million copies across the globe.

Demelza’s love for the ocean took a turn when she discovered her fear of fish on her first snorkeling trip. However, this didn’t stop her from exploring further. Over time, she challenged herself by swimming alongside sharks, sea lions, and even sea cucumbers. She didn’t shy away from experiencing intense moments, like standing on spray-soaked cliffs, witnessing a massive seven-meter cyclonic swell crashing onto a shipwreck below.

Demelza often carries a camera with her on these adventures. This helps her capture and share these moments, even those involving shipwrecks and shark encounters. A resident of Perth, Western Australia, aka the shark attack capital of the world, Demelza continues to explore and document her ocean adventures, undeterred by the sea’s thrilling and sometimes risky nature.

Enchant: Beauty and the Beast Retold is the first novel in Romance, a Medieval Fairytale series. The story proves that Demelza Carlton has a remarkable talent for crafting captivating fantasies using simple pieces of paper and her vivid imagination. The book presents a heartfelt fairytale romance. Although the Beast appears ugly externally in this rendition, his inner goodness shines brightly. The enchantress, who cursed him through a magical mirror, holds a pure heart despite her part in the curse.

The story unfolds with King Thorn as he coerces young Zuleika into creating a curse to save her family. Fleeing this tyrant, she uses her powers to aid others, later promising her father to restore their family’s wealth by uncovering pirates who raided their ships. This pursuit leads her to an enchanted island, where she encounters a man cursed to live as a beast. A man revealed to be King Thorn’s brother, Vardan. As Zuleika navigates her feelings for Vardan, she questions whether she contributed to Vardan’s suffering. Is he, as the brother of a monster, also a monster? Or does he possess integrity and kindness beyond outward appearances?

Together, they explore whether true love can break the beastly prince’s curse or if appearance truly doesn’t matter in matters of true love. This tale beautifully weaves together themes of love, destiny, and magic, presenting a narrative that resonates with the enchantment of the original fairytale.

In this story, the Beast isn’t the typical fierce and aggressive figure portrayed in Disney’s adaptation. He’s described as a kind and caring man, deeply concerned about the well-being of those under his protection. However, he and his people are repeatedly subjected to a spell that invisibly conceals them, enabling them to claim cargo and trade goods from passing ships and pirates approaching their island. The spell serves as a means for their survival, yet the Beast feels unjustly burdened by its consequences despite his noble intentions.
Demelza Carlton breathes new life into fantasy and fairytales. This offers a fresh perspective while maintaining the allure of enchantment through her storytelling prowess.

Maid for the Rock Star is the debut novel in Romance Island Resort. We meet Audra, preparing for a new job, who takes a summer position at a resort island. Unexpectedly, she’s given an important role – catering to VIP guests’ needs, working tirelessly around the clock in hopes of securing a full-time position during the off-season.

Audra’s exclusive duty is attending to the sole VIP guest, Jason, a guitarist from one of her favorite bands. Despite his rock star persona, Jason makes advances towards Audra, breaching the resort’s strict policy against guest-employee relationships. Audra firmly declines his proposition, sparking Jason’s determination to win her.

However, as their interactions deepen, Jason develops genuine feelings for Audra, contrary to his usual one-night affairs. Spending more time together, they uncover layers of each other’s personalities, revealing different sides to Jason beyond his public image.
Their dynamic shifts unexpectedly after a car accident, forcing them to spend more time together in unforeseen ways. Despite the resort’s rules, Audra thinks about Jason beyond her duty of care.

Demelza Carlton’s writing style captivates without being overly complex, maintaining a balance that keeps readers engaged. She adeptly constructs the storyline’s pace and character depth, crafting intense moments of romantic tension. Readers will be on the edge of their seats gripping the story, eager to discover the outcome of Audra and Jason’s relationship, as it could go either way.

Maid for the Rock Star is one of Carlton’s finest works, catering to romantics, dreamers, realists, and contemplative readers alike. This leaves readers intrigued with each chapter, pondering whether the character’s relationship will culminate in togetherness or separation.
Nightmares of Caitlin Lockyer, the first novel in Nightmare’s trilogy, revolves around intense and deeply emotional themes. Nathan encounters Caitlin in a devastating state, broken, bloodied, and traumatized, on a beach. Despite being strangers, he stays by her side, promising to protect and support her. He remains with her during her journey to the hospital, providing comfort and reassurance.

Initially, Nathan feels it would be wrong to think of Caitlin romantically due to the severity of her condition. However, as Caitlin starts to heal, he struggles with conflicting emotions as he finds her attractive. Despite his inner conflicts, Nathan continues assisting Caitlin, feeling torn between his actions and self-imposed boundaries.

Nathan admits to being someone who prefers casual relationships without emotional commitment. Nevertheless, his encounters with Caitlin challenge his usual behavior, leaving him confused and uncertain about his feelings.

Caitlin, though deeply affected by the abuse she endured, exhibits strength and resilience in her will to survive. She relies on Nathan for support and safety, leading to them spending significant time together and getting to know each other better. Their conversations uncover clues suggesting Caitlin might still be in danger.

Nightmares of Caitlin Lockyer promises an engaging narrative that hooks readers and keeps them captivated until the end. The story unfolds gradually, drawing readers in like a tightening coil, and when they think they have a grip on the plot, unexpected twists intensify the suspense.
