My friend Karilyn Bentley visits with info about her new release.
Hi Diane! Thank you for letting me blog with you today! I'm excited to announce Devil Take Me, the fourth book in the urban fantasy series, Demon Huntress, is available at an online retailer near you! In case you haven't read the series, it follows Gin Crawford as the world's newest demon huntress and her hot guardian mage, Aidan Smythe.
The last book, Demon Cursed, left Gin depressed and in a funk. Devil Take Me starts the morning after Demon Cursed ends. Gin is faced with a demon rampaging through Dallas and trying to entice her to his side. In order to stop the demon, she needs help from Smythe. But due to a huge misunderstanding, Smythe refuses to talk to her. Needless to say, she needs to patch her relationship with him in order to stop the demon.
The next and final book in the series will be out late this year (provided I can come up with a title!). Read on for the blurb and excerpt. Enjoy!!
A demon attack…
Reeling from a personal tragedy and abandoned by all she loves, the world's newest demon huntress, Gin Crawford, sinks into a deep despair. She’s forced back to reality by news of a large number of people committing suicide, all on the same night. Suspecting demon involvement, Gin must work with her sexy but estranged mentor Aidan Smythe to track who, or what, is behind the deaths.
Leads to a new discovery…
As they come closer to finding the culprit, they realize their employer, the Agency, is hiding its own secret, one which threatens Gin's very existence. New discoveries reveal that even those dedicated to eradicating evil can be bought. Can Gin and Smythe forgive each other and work together or will they fall under the demon's thrall?
A vision of an auburn-haired man dressed in dark trousers and a gray button-down, appears in my head. He sits on my closed toilet lid, watching me sleep in the full tub, watching as my head slides closer to the waterline.
It must be a dream. How else can I be asleep and still see the bathroom, my sleeping self and the man? A dream. Only a dream. His voice is nothing more than my imaginings.
And yet I feel the need to answer. To deny his words.
I’m not listening to you. I make an effort to rebuke the voice, refusing to take what it offers, refusing to admit its enticing pull.
Oh, but you are. He leans forward, resting his elbows on his knees, his gaze firmly affixed to my face. You contemplate my words. You seek the rest only I can give.
Yeah, right. Not buying it, buster. Although I’m starting to want what he offers. I’ll never admit it to Mystery Man. What can a figment of my imagination really do?
I am not a figment. He smiles, his lips pulling away from straight, white teeth.
Despite the warm water, a chill runs down my spine. He holds out his hand.
Come. Take my hand. Rest. Leave your problems behind.
