The month of February is a fun one for Crimson Romance, because they always give so much stuff away. This year, their grand prize is a Kindle Fire and a bunch of their bestselling books. Entering is as easy as signing up for the Crimson newsletter, so jump HERE for a chance to win. They've also dropped the price on all their books published before 2015, and over 400 books have been reduced to $1.99 - or $0.77 for the 8-book bundles. That's a screamin' deal, so jump HERE to see what's what.
My paranormal romance Forever & Ever, Amen is one of the books priced at $1.99. I love this story because it's about grown-ups dealing with adult issues. More accurately, it's about a forty-some woman and an angel dealing with the problems created by a demon and a couple of teenagers.
Because sometimes there's not all that much difference between a demon and a teenager.
Molly's great. She's not perfect, but she's resilient, and she loves her kids more than anything. Cass wears his heart on his sleeve, and even though he's spent eternity observing human behavior, he can't help falling for her spirit and sense of humor. Check out the blurb & excerpt, and if you're intrigued, there's a link down at the bottom to the book's page on Amazon. Thanks so much, and Happy Valentine's Day...
BlurbMolly, a forty-something single mom, tangles with the wrong guy and gets a hell of a hickey. That blotch is really a demon’s mark, and she’ll have to face the three things that scare her most to get rid of it.
First, Molly loses her job and then she has a near-sex experience with her philandering, not-quite-ex-husband. Worst of all, she has to sit by a hospital bed, wondering if her son is ever going to wake up.
The Powers That Be assign Cass to help her. He’s an angel who’s trying to earn a seat in the celestial choir by helping out a human in need. Vanquishing the demon would be his ticket up, but only if he plays by the rules. He’ll never earn his wings if he loses his heart to the lovely Molly. But she has even bigger things to worry about. She stands to lose her soul.
Molly ran her hands through her hair in frustration. “So far he’s cost me my job and nearly dumped me into bed with Ford. I do not want to live through whatever the third trial is.”
“You don’t mean that.” Cass moved closer to her, nearly close enough to touch. He took a deep breath and reached out towards her.
She automatically reached toward him, her fingers brushing through cool air where she saw his hand. Shit.
His expression was as sad as she’d ever seen it. “Look under your pillow.”
“Why? Are you the tooth fairy now?”
Cass chuckled, sounding more like himself. “Just trust me.”
The rich earthy smell of the forest got stronger. Molly raised an eyebrow and ran her hand under the closest pillow. Her fingers brushed against something cool and round. She pulled it out. It was a gold ring about a quarter inch thick and carved with a delicate vine and leaf pattern. “Wow,” Molly whispered. “It’s beautiful.”
“Put it on.”
She did. It fit the ring finger of her right hand. She held her hand out, watching the way the light made the ring glow, just like Cass’s earring did.
“Now sugar, this isn’t just an ordinary ring,” he said. “It’s sidhe gold, and while its magic won’t last forever, it’ll hold off Zepar’s last trial until you’ve had time to get your feet on the ground a little bit.”
“I thought the rules said you could only talk and listen.”
Cass shut his eyes and pressed an index finger to his closed lips.
“Okay then,” Molly said. “I won’t tell if you won’t. I don’t have enough friends that I can afford to piss one of them off.”
“We’re friends?” Cass sounded tentative, and Molly could feel him watching for her response.
“I hope so.” She smiled.
“I do appreciate what you’re doing. You’ve been really…I don’t know how I’d be handling all this if I didn’t have you to help me work things through.”
“Just listening and talking, right?”
“Yeah, and keeping my daughter’s boyfriend in line and making me laugh.”
“It’s always easy to help a pretty girl.”
“You know, if I ever get married again, it would have to be with someone like you.” Surprise made Molly blush to the roots. She didn’t know where the idea had come from but knew to her bones that it was true. “I’m sorry, that was…”
“You might want to find someone a little more substantial.” Cass smiled, but he was blushing, too.
“Yeah.” Their glances met and held. Molly looked away first.
“You sleep good tonight, Molly.” Cass bowed and disappeared.
