Forgiveness softens even the hardest of hearts…
College senior Slade Bennet is so close to his degree he can taste it…until his sister becomes tangled with a coven of demons and he must trade his soul to save her. But first he must kill the assigned target: a sexually charged beauty who ignites his protective instinct.
After the devastating loss of her Companion, the last thing Halena Girard can stomach is the emotional connection to a Mate. She lives for only two things: vanquishing demons, and seeking Artifacts rumored to lead to Lucifer’s downfall. That is, until she’s attacked by a…frat boy? Worse, a newly-demonic frat boy wearing the mark of her Mate.
Halena would rather kill Slade than give him her heart. Unfortunately, the only way Slade can find his sister and Halena the Artifacts is to work together. As they face the darkest of evil, Slade’s ability to crush Halena’s carefully erected walls might prove to be the most lethal battle of all.
When did you first realize you had a passion to write?
I didn’t grow up with aspirations of becoming a writer. Actually, I wanted to be a Psychiatrist. Specifically, Clarice from Silence of the Lambs. So, when a story came to life in my mind back in 2007 and I put it to paper by 2008, I—along with my entire family—was quite surprised. But, I’m one to go with things, so I took the next step in the path to becoming an author, and here I am. It’s a crazy fun journey with twists and turns you never see coming—some good, some less than desirable—but I’m loving it! As long as the stories keep coming, I’ll keep writing.
What types of books do you read in your spare time? Any favorite authors?
I love all things paranormal. That’s my first love. I do have some contemporaries I’ve rather enjoyed as well. Some of my favorite authors are: Rebecca Zanetti, Jus Accardo, Rebecca Yarros, Gena Showalter, PC Cast.
How did you feel when you typed 'The End' on your very first book?
Surprised, proud, scared, confused… Yeah, can you tell I used to be a therapist? LOL. As far as the surprised, it goes along with how I answered the first question. Writing and becoming an author was never on my radar before. Funny how things work out. Proud is because…well, I’d done it! Yay. Scared because I fell into the “now what do I do?” which kind of explains confused. My BFF told me to “take the next step.” Once I finished the book. Without that advice, I probably wouldn’t be here.
Do you have a writing quirk or something that you must do when writing?
I don’t think I do, unless you count needing to have a clean desk to start writing at a quirk. Something about a cluttered writing space drives me bonkers. Feels like my creativity is out of whack or something. Oh, and as I was typing that, another one popped into my mind that my hubby has commented on. I have headphones in most of the time—even if I don’t have music playing at the moment. Just something about wearing them…
