Angel Vindicated

I'm happy to announce my urban fantasy, Angel Vindicated, has been contracted by Cerridwen Press. Release date to be determined after the fun editing stage is complete. I loved writing this story, and I can't wait to share it with the world (yes, I'm optimistic). Not that I don't enjoy writing my usual paranormal romance. I do. Very much so. And I hope you'll enjoy it as well. It's just that Angel Vindicated was so different that I had to step out of my box... For a few reasons:

-It’s in first person. My heroine, Abby Angel, is the star of the story and she has a ton of fun with it, if I do say so myself. And I did.
-It’s not a straight romance, although there is a lot of steamy romance in it. I couldn’t deny my heroine that. Being an Angel, her life is pretty restricted. She has to have some fun, right?
-It’s grittier (some violence, plenty of action, lots of dry humor)

Here's a blurb:

Abigail Angel may not enjoy being a law enforcement Angel for Demon Control, a branch of Angels Inc, but she excels at it. Deporting unruly demons back to Hell is her specialty. Her personal life, on the other hand, could use a little work. The virtuous and pristine genes seem to be missing in this particular Angel, getting Abigail in trouble more than she likes to admit. To date, her biggest vice has been Simeon Keller, a half demon/half human, who effortlessly managed to seduce Abigail five years ago. She’s avoided him ever since but she still can’t seem to knock the bad reputation the blunder has branded on her.

Now, the threat of a demon rebellion has Angels Inc overwhelmed and Abigail must trust Simeon to help her find and deport the fiends who are attempting to destroy earth’s only salvation. Staying out of Simeon’s bed is the least of her worries as she fights for her life and the lives of all Angels and humans everywhere.

Stay tuned for more info. Cover, excerpts and release date coming soon.

Happy Monday!
