#8Sunday…From Reap & Repent
This eight sentence excerpt installment follows a scene in which Ruth has flashed home with Deacon’s best friend in tow to make preparations to capture a demon. The last time Ruth flashed away from him hadn’t ended so well. and Deacon’s understandably nervous about being able to protect her when she’s away from him. She returns safely, just not quick enough for Deacon.
Deacon looked at her. Hard.
“That took forever.”
“It wasn’t that long,” she said, making her way to him. “I needed another backpack and pants. I thought it would be best if my pants didn’t fall off in the middle of whatever we’re about to do.”
Softening, Deacon smirked. “Well, I wouldn’t go that far.”
That’s all until next week, folks. Thanks for visiting.

Reap & Repent blurb
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.
