This one's book 2 of The Goddess Connection series. With the heroine related to the goddess Persephone and her husband Hades, a good bit of it's set in the Underworld. I'm somewhat of a mythology addict (and a research addict, a dangerous combination!) so loved writing these characters, and placing them in modern settings with a new twist.
I hope you'll love reading it as much as I loved writing it. Embrace your inner goddess with The Goddess Connection.
If you need to "try it before you buy," I'll post the first chapter on my blog tomorrow.

I should actually say re-released. You may remember I self-pubbed this novel last year. But I wanted it to reach a wider audience, and Decadent's editors helped me polish it up a bit.
This story's a little different. Although it contains a little sexual tension, it's not a romance, but more along the lines of an urban fantasy. I'm never quite sure of the distinction between dark paranormal and urban fantasy, so I'm going with dark paranormal because of the demons, warrior angels and a mixup of souls. There's some violence and graphic language, so the heat level's bumped up because of that.
I'm even more excited that Decadent's wonderful editors were so enthusiastic about this story, a few asked about a sequel. The ending is open to it, and I'd love to write an interrelated set of stories about the various warrior angels -- eventually. I have a dozen or so WIPs I need to finish first. :)
I'm loving Decadent Publishing. They also arranged for a blog tour for Dead to Rights, so look for news of that, but probably not until May.

Dancing With the Devil is Book Two of The Goddess Connection series, which says: Every woman should embrace her inner goddess. What’s your connection? I have several more novels in this series in mind to follow. In each, the heroine will be somehow connected to a goddess. Her lifelong quirks will become strengths once she finds her true place in the world, and accepts herself for who she really is.
Lily MacInnis, the heroine, is the granddaughter of the goddess Persephone and Hades. Yep, that Hades. A challenge to write, but if Persephone fell in love with him, he had to have some redeeming qualities. So he's a multifaceted character, which I love to write. None of these characters are without flaws, which makes them all the more interesting to write as well.
If you're at all tempted, I'm going to make Dancing With the Devil available for free on Amazon at the end of the month. Meanwhile, I could always use some Likes and tags!

Ebooks overwhelmingly outsell print books these days, and for good reason. Actually, several good reasons!
They're mobile. Instead of carrying one paperback, you can now carry hundreds of books at once. My Kindle's currently holding about 270.
You don't need a special device to read ebooks. Kindles and Nooks are great, but you can also read on your phone, or your computer with free apps.
You can buy an ebook in seconds. A wonderful convenience.
Your favorite authors' books are available as ebooks. And you might find a few new favorites, too.
My kids bought me a Kindle last Mother's Day, and I love it. The font size is adjustable, but with newer ebooks, most are formatted so they're easy to read. But with 270 ebooks loaded, I have some reading to catch up on.
