The Demons are Coming! The Demons are Coming!

August 15th.

Damned and Defiant, coming soon

DAMNED AND DEFIANT, Book 3 in the Demons in Exile series will be released at Ellora's Cave. I'm excited because this erotic romance was an unusual story to write. I'm very please how the final story arc turned out. It wasn't my original plan. After the first book was released

(DESERT OF THE DAMNED) readers wrote in and asked if Dante would come back and find love. But he was one of the antagonists in the book, the evil demon who ends up killing a few people. The readers sympathized with his desperate situation. He's a complex bad guy and not the truly evil one. Gwyllain represents ultimate evil. She's the ruling demoness and is trapped in her alternative universe. All the other demons are forced to serve her or their world will be destroyed.

I had to do a lot of thinking about my original three-book story arc. Could I change it and redeem Dante in the end? It took a lot of work in book two DAMNED AND DESIRED, which finaled in the EPIC Awards. So for book three I gave Dante a chance to redeem himself and find love. But he has to earn it!

Here's the blurb:

Damned and Defiant: Coming to Ellora's Cave August 15.
Available soon after at Amazon, B&N and other vendors.
Book 3 in the Demons in Exile series.

Mortal women surrender to Dante’s seductions. He is a Drone, an immortal who feeds off their lifeforce energy—the chi that keeps his kind alive. When his dimension is on the edge of destruction, Dante must seek the help of one special woman.

Haley Moore is a Sha Warrior—a mortal with excess lifeforce energy. She has always had a strong attraction to Dante and when they meet again he thinks luck is on his side because his quota of chi energy would be obtained after one scorching scene with this mortal. But the problem is that he is overwhelmingly attracted to her and once with this woman won’t be enough.

Haley tries to draw out the man buried deep within the demon. Their fierce, undeniable passion unravels his plans and threatens her life. Can Dante bear to abandon her when he leaves Earth forever? Dante will have to choose whether to return to his world or to give up his immortality and share his future with Haley.
