    Welcome to the Precious Monsters Blog Hop.

     

    I do love monsters. Don’t even make me pick a favorite. Vampires, shifters, aliens…reapers. I love them all.

    Meet Deacon Walker, the reaper hero of Reap & Repent, Book One of my Reaper Series:

    Reap & Repent excerpt:

    Repent 3D small jpgPROLOGUE

    What does a guy have to do around here to get some service? Deacon Walker marveled as he glared at the undulating queue of grotesque reapers in front of him.

    For all that’s holy, move the hell along already.

    It had been a long week, and it wasn’t over yet. He needed to make at least one more pass through the hospital circuit before he could call it a day. He could already feel the tug of a freshly departed soul. Again. People were dropping like flies lately.

    He massaged his brow, trying to soothe his exhausted patience as the line inched forward at a snail’s pace.

    He was worn thin. Over the past few weeks, three demon soul poachers had popped up in his fair city of Meridian like poisonous mushrooms after a hard rain.

    While it wasn’t unheard of for one to slip out from Hell every now and then, three was a nightmare.

    When it got topside, a demon’s M.O. was to steal a human body, poach a few souls from the dead and dying, and then make its merry way back to Hell, taking its host’s soul along for the ride. The only way to save the souls a poacher was carrying was to behead the host with a scythe. Not a pretty thing to do, but the poor suckers were too far gone by then to survive anyway. No human could withstand the pressures of being ridden by a demon. And it was worth it to save a handful of souls, not to mention inconveniencing the demon.

    Deacon refused to lose any souls from his territory. At all. So far the score was Deacon, 3. Demons, 0.

    As a reaper, carrying souls to Purgatory for judgment was his job and he wasn’t about to cede his territory to poachers who used up their hosts like they were disposable Tupperware. So now, in addition to his normal day job, he also had to keep an eye out for more demon invaders.

    While demons burned through most human hosts in a matter of days, some in a matter of hours, they had discovered long ago that under the right circumstances they could ride a reaper. Of course, they couldn’t just worm their way in like they did with humans—they had to be invited. But once a deal was struck? They were in.

    And reapers? Yeah, they could hang on for decades inside a reaper. Deacon knew that fact firsthand. His stomach twisted at the thought, but he shook it off, looking ahead with a heavy sigh.

    Seriously, this line? Still. Not. Moving?

    God, he needed a freakin’ vacation. Extended. He dragged a hand through his hair in frustration as his mind flipped through postcard-esque locations of reapings past. He snarled at the thought of New Orleans in summer. He would definitely want to go someplace cool—cool as in frigid, not hip. He was sick of the heat, and it was only the beginning of summer in the semitropical Midwest.

    Come to think of it, he was sick of a lot of things.

    This place was high on the list. It was as hot as…well, Hell actually. Or at least what he imagined Hell to be, although he’d never actually been there. Thank God. Steam rose from random cracks in the stone floor of the underground station, veiling the place in a humid sulfur stench.

    He pushed forward, finally making his way to the front to deposit his cargo of souls. He didn’t bother chatting. In. Out. Move on. It was a motto that served him well.

    Mission completed, he hustled through the crowd, forgoing the bar-side frivolity of some of the more socially inclined reapers and their small talk about their glory days in the field or—even better—the missteps of the newest reapers. Newbies often tested their limits to humorous if not disastrous effect at least once in their early careers. That was exactly why new reapers had mentors or at least worked in teams. From all the laughter, he could tell that the stories were good ones. It didn’t tempt him.

    He slapped his palm against the black granite monolith and flashed out of Purgatory to what he prayed was his last stop of the day.

  • Guilty Indulgence Blog Hop: What’s Your Secret Love?

    banner blogiversary 4 yrs

     

    I have a love for monsters. The human sort don’t count. They are way scarier than any vampire, shifter, wendigo or reaper any author could make up.

    Paranornormal romance and urban fantasy reading and writing is my guilty indulgence.

    And I partake frequently.

    The first paranormal romance I ever read was J.R. Ward’s Dark Lover.

    I. Was. Hooked.

    Since then I’ve read hundreds of paranormal romance and urban fantasies. It seems I can never quite quench my thirst.

    That’s why I started writing them. I write reapers. The grim kind.

    The Reaper Series

    A small group of reapers and supernatural beings in Meridian, Arkansas are all that stands between humanity and the apocalypse when a fallen angel stages a demonic invasion. In their battle to save the world, each will meet his or her match, discovering the power of love…and the importance of risking everything to protect it.

    The only thing worse than having nothing to live for…is having everything to live for.

    They see death. Can they share a life?

    Ruth Scott can read the energy of every person she meets. Then she meets Deacon Walker. She can see his ice-blue eyes, his black hair, and his gorgeous face. But this beautiful stranger has no aura.

    Deacon is just as unsettled by Ruth—and, having spent more than two hundred years ushering souls to Purgatory, Deacon is seldom shocked by anything. As he helps Ruth to understand her true nature, she awakens desires that he decided long ago a Reaper can’t afford.

    A demon invasion forces Deacon to confront the darkness in his own past even as he fights to save the human souls he’s charged to protect. When he’s taken captive, his first concern is for Ruth. But Ruth just might be able to save herself—and the Reaper she can’t live without—if she can learn to wield her newfound powers.
