About the Author : 
For the past fourteen years, Victoria has illustrated and authored Seasons of the Witch calendars and planners for

Though works of fiction are a departure for me, I have had this series simmering on the back burner of her mind for years. In addition to authoring and illustrating Seasons of the Witch, I play rock music and manage one of Houston's premier R&B/Variety/Pop bands.

This series will include some of my actual experience in the paranormal with fictionalized anecdotes from my journals during the years when I was a practicing "metaphysician", but most of the material is fantasy.

Victoria Danann
The Order of the Black Swan Book Three

ISBN: 978-1-933320-67-0
ISBN: 978-1-933320-80-9 Paperback

A secret society, a witch, a psychic, vampires, modern day knights, heroes, elves, fae, assassins from another dimension, and fairytales come together where emotions intersect. Two souls, joined by a mystical bond, separated by distance, must simultaneously struggle through pain and darkness in an ultimate confrontation with character and an ultimate struggle for life proving that true love waits patiently through lifetimes and finds courage to survive. Even in the strangest places. Even when you're least expecting it. Even when you're far, far from home.

Erotic quotient: Some steamy scenes. No menage. No BDSM.

My thoughts:
Once again I found myself wrapped up by the story telling ability of this author.  
I love her characters and I was thrilled that we get to continue to follow their lives.  I am a huge fan of books that have multiple stories going on all at once, and Victoria Danann seems to have perfected it.  Fast paced, action packed, amazing characters - do not miss this series.

Blog Tour: Revelation by Erica Hayes (author giveaway)

This virtual book tour is presented by Bewitching Book Tours.
Click HERE for more tour information.
Welcome to The Wormhole and my day on the tour.
It is my pleasure to feature Erica Hayes and Revelation.

About the Author:

Erica Hayes was a law student, an air force officer, an editorial assistant and a musician, before finally landing her dream job: fantasy and romance writer.

She writes dark paranormal and urban fantasy romance, and her books feature tough, smart heroines and colourful heroes with dark secrets.

She hails from Australia, where she drifts from city to city, leaving a trail of chaos behind her. Currently, she's terrorizing the wilds of Northumberland.

Erica has stopped by with a guest post:

10 reasons you'll love REVELATION

Romance readers are busy people. Books to devour, chocolate to consume, hungry families to ignore while we fall in love with another strong, gorgeous, to-die-for hero and his amazing heroine. Talk to the hand, real life. We don't have all day.

So. Want the quick-and-dirty on REVELATION, my dark paranormal romance? First in the Seven Signs series? In paperback and ebook from Berkley Sensation? Sure you do. Here are ten reasons you'll love REVELATION, in sixty seconds or less. Ready, steady, go!

1.      The Apocalypse. Y'know, with seven signs. Complete with a zombie invasion of New York City and an ocean of blood. And we've only just begun.

2.      A posse of hot supernatural warriors. C'mon, every paranormal series needs one. These guys (and girls!) are called the Tainted Host, a bunch of angels thrown out of heaven for their sins. They roam the earth. They kick butt. They party hard.

3.      A smokin' hot fallen angel hero. Big muscles, cool magical powers, a wicked sense of humor. Luniel is a tough alpha warrior with a big flaming sword (ahem) and a tortured past. Oh, and velvety black feathers. You know you want one.

4.      A gutsy, modern heroine. Morgan is a pathologist, who does autopsies for a living, and she doesn't believe in all this angel-demon-end-of-the-world nonsense. Until a totally scrumptious one lands in her lap, that is. Oh, and when the zombies arrive? She kicks butt.

5.      Cool demons. Not wussy ones, who only pretend to be evil while they're swanning about managing nightclubs or whatever. My demons are snarky, cunning psychopaths who screw you over with the small print and munch your pathetic soul into hamburger. They like pain and death and destruction. And they really enjoy making angels miserable.

6.      The archangel Michael. He's bold, he's gorgeous, he's twisted as hell. You've never seen him like this. Trust me.

7.      The demon king, Azaroth, ice prince extraordinaire. Satan's chilly lieutenant, intent on busting his boss out of the pit and creating hell on earth. He appears as wind, as darkness, as icy drips on your window. Be very afraid.

8.      This amazing cover. Nom nom. Is this gentleman delicious, or what? With special bonus taut man-midriff. Buy a copy just for that, if you want. I won't complain.

9.      This series is guaranteed to feature absolutely zero virginal interns, job interviews or billionaires who need therapy. Just for a change. There may be a small tying-up scene. Or not. You'll see…

10.  We all hate waiting, right? So in case you just can't get enough? Book 2 is nearly upon us! REDEMPTION hits shelves on 5 March. Check out those hot golden feathers. Enough said. This Apocalypse is far from over…

Bzzt! Time's up. Thanks for having me, and I hope you enjoy REVELATION.

Book Description:

A fallen angel with a mission and a medical examiner who's lost her faith are fighting for their souls in a glittering, near-future Manhattan...

Blind faith is for fools. That's what Dr. Morgan Sterling believes. And she's going to prove it by curing the zombie plague ravaging her city's slums. She's certain it's not a sign of the End of Days, but a nasty disease—until an angel appears in her morgue in a flash of glory.

Luniel is not just a fallen angel. He's a powerful warrior sworn to fight evil in hopes of a chance at redemption. He's after the demon princes who are stealing the seven vials of holy wrath which, when perverted, will unleash eternal hell on earth.

To stop the plague, Luniel needs Morgan's help, and her faith. But Morgan believes science is their salvation. If the zombie plague is a demonic curse—and if Luniel is true—he’ll have to prove it. Even if he loses his heart to true love or his soul to Hell...

White light erupted, brighter than any flashbulb.
She gasped, dazzled. Breeze ruffled her hair. Her elbow hit the trolley, and the camera jolted from her fingers.
A hand gripped her arm, steadying her. A man’s voice, deep and unfamiliar. “Sorry, lady. I didn’t think anyone would be here. Are you—oh, shit.”
Her vision cleared, and she scrabbled on the floor for her camera. “Jesus, you scared the hell outta . . . oh!” She looked up, and fell right back onto her ass, her nerves in disarray.
Whoa. Not just tall, or big. More, in every way compared to . . . well, compared to a normal man.
This guy wasn’t normal.
Black hair, blacker than soot and wilder than music. Blue eyes, hotter and deeper than summer sky, luminous pale skin, long dark lashes any woman would kill for. Arms thicker than her thighs in a dark shirt with no sleeves, strong wrists that made her weak, hands that could crush rocks. And his thighs in those jeans . . . long, powerful, rippling as he moved.
His face was familiar, she realized. Those carved cheekbones and, umm, luscious lips. The bird man. Only Birdy was blond, and this guy was dark and . . . tasty.
His gaze lasered onto hers, relentless, and she shivered. He looked dangerous. Driven. Not a patient man.
Morgan scrambled up, struggling to keep her mind on the issues. This was Babylon, the psycho-killer capital. Well-adjusted guys didn’t break into morgues after-hours. But how Mr. Huge-dark-and-oh-by-the-way-totally-hot had gotten in here was beside the point. So was how easy it’d be for a guy his size to tear her limb from limb, or worse.
He’d seen Birdy’s body. She couldn’t call security. Not yet. Not before she’d preserved the evidence.
She licked her lips. “Um. Hi. I was just . . .”
He strode up to the trolley, and his fingers clenched the edge, hard enough to dent the steel. On drugs. That explained the crazy swirl in his eyes. “You found my brother,” he said stiffly. “I guess asking how he died is redundant.”

Blog Tour: Fractured Soul by Rachel McClellan (International Hardcover Giveaway)

This virtual blog tour is presented by Cedar Fort Books.
Click HERE for more tour information.
Welcome to The Wormhole and my stop on the tour.
It is my pleasure to feature:
Rachel McClellan and Fractured Soul.
Rachel has joined us for an interview:
? When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
I’ve always enjoyed writing, but never believed I could be an author. It wasn’t until I traveled to Ireland and stood on the Cliffs of Moher, overlooking the massive ocean, that I realized I was the only person holding me back from following my dreams. I quickly got out of the way.

? How many jobs did you have before you became a writer?
Argh! Painful memories. I’d rather not remember my bean-making days at Taco John’s or the hundreds of people I harassed from a call center. 

? How long does it take you to write a book?
About six months.

? What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?
I use an Alpha Smart to write. It’s basically a typewriter with a small screen showing only four visible lines of text.  I love it! It’s so light and the batteries last forever. I can’t imagine writing without it.

? Where do you get your ideas or inspiration for your characters?
Surprisingly, there are still a few brain cells bouncing around in my head. Whenever they collide a character or idea is born.

? How do you decide what you want to write about?
I have a file of ideas. Whenever I’m ready to start a new project, I ponder over them, but only when an ending to one of the story ideas comes to me, do I actually begin writing.

? What books have most influenced your life?
Wow. That’s a hard one. I have the usual spiritual books I reflect on, like the Bible, to help me become a better person. I love To Kill a Mockingbird, Atlas Shrugged and The Angels are the Reapers. And The Book Thief. Oh, and books by C.S. Lewis.

? What are you reading right now?
I’m actually going back to re-read the Leven Thumps series. I love studying that book by Obert Skye. He is excellent at world building!

? What do you like to do when you are not writing?
I love playing all kinds of sports and love snowboarding. Of course having four children has made my mountain-play time almost non-existent. I hope to get back into it as they grow older.

? What is your favorite comfort food?
Ranch dressing. And not that store bought crap in the plastic bottles. It’s got to be the homemade kind. I’ll dip just about anything in it.

? What do you think makes a good story?
A story that gets stuck in reader’s heads for days after they read it.

? Who would you consider your favorite author and why?
Tough question. And when things get tough, I cheat. J Favorite children’s author – Dr. Seuss. Favorite middle-grade author – Obert Skye. Favorite YA author – L.J. Smith Favorite adult author – Dean Koontz.

Fun random questions: 
dogs or cats? Big dogs
Coffee or tea? Neither
Dark or milk chocolate? Creamy milk
Rocks or flowers? Rocks
Night or day? Night
Favorite color? Black
Crayons or markers? Crayons
Pens or pencils? Pens

More about the author:
Rachel McClellan was born and raised in Idaho, a place secretly known for its supernatural creatures. When she's not in her writing lair, she's partying with her husband and four crazy, yet lovable, children. Rachel's love for storytelling began as a child when the moon first possessed the night. For when the lights went out, her imagination painted a whole new world. And what a scary world it was...

Fractured Soul by Rachel McClellan

About Fractured Soul:
Llona will do whatever it takes to protect her new found friends and home, but the dark plot threatening Lucent Academy, a school that’s supposed to be a safe place for Auras, may be too powerful for even Llona to defeat. This fast-paced tale of love, loyalty, and overcoming the darkness will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page!

Blog Tour: Into the Dark by Stacy Green (Giveaway too)

This virtual book tour is presented by Partners in Crime Tours.
Click Here for more tour details.
Welcome to The Wormhole and my day on the tour.
It is my pleasure to feature Stacy Green and Into the Dark.

Stacy has joined us for an interview:
? When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I’ve always written in some form, starting with little stories as a kid and then into more short stories in high school. A college professor told me to go into magazine journalism as it was for writers who “wanted to publish a novel but never would.” I foolishly took her advice and put creative writing on the backburner for a long time.

? How many jobs did you have before you became a writer?
Three full time jobs. I started out as a newspaper reporter for a small weekly community paper in the Des Moines, IA area, and then moved into advertising with another local company. When we moved to Cedar Rapids, I went to work for Yellowbook until the birth of my daughter at the end of 2005. Through all of that, I wanted to write but convinced myself I didn’t have the chops.

? How long does it take you to write a book?
INTO THE DARK took about a year. My upcoming novel, TIN GOD, about six months, and I’m hoping to get the first draft of it’s follow up by spring. I learn so much with every book and continue to fine tune my plotting process, so things are getting faster.

? What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?
I like natural light. I don’t like having a light or the reflection off my computer, and I tend to not be as productive at night. I suppose you could call that a quirk.

? Where do you get your ideas or inspiration for your characters?
From lots of things. Bits and pieces from the news or television, someone in my life, personal experiences. A big part of both Nathan and Emilie in INTO THE DARK is based on my experience on trying to get beyond my own issues with past mistakes. My books are character driven, and I like to get beyond the surface and figure out what makes them tick.

? How do you decide what you want to write about?
I love suspense and thrillers, so I always know I’m going in that direction. From there, it usually starts with a “what if” question. INTO THE DARK’s question is: what if an obsessed stalker used the Las Vegas tunnels as a refuge, and what if that stalker was driven beyond more than obsession? TIN GOD’s is: what if a poverty-stricken woman discovers the secret she’s been hiding for years is the motive for a recent murder? They can be broader as well, and after I get the question, I start jotting down all possible answers and go from there.

? What books have most influenced your life?
Several, and they are varied. The Laura Ingalls Wilder books fostered my love for reading and history, Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles made me fall in love with the story and want to create one of my own, and Silence of the Lambs helped me to learn the value of a truly incredible and three dimensional villain. And there are several more I could list, but I don’t want to bore readers.

? What are you reading right now?
Getting ready to start Say You’re Sorry by Michale Robotham.

? What do you like to do when you are not writing?
I’ve got a first grader, so my time is pretty well stocked. When she is home, I try to spend as much time as possible with her. Otherwise, I’m trying to catch up on my reading or television.

? What is your favorite comfort food?
Chocolate in any form. And good Italian bread.

? What do you think makes a good story?
Great characters who are more than just good or bad, someone I can empathize with. And a plot that keeps me guessing until the very end.

? Who would you consider your favorite author and why?
Stephen King, and not just because of his stories. His no nonsense view on the craft is something every writer needs to follow, and he has an incredible knack for noticing the details about people–the flashes of color and personality–that make for engaging characters. He is very observant, and I think that is a big reason for his success.

Fun random questions: 
·        dogs or cats? Both, but I’m allergic to cats so we have three dogs.
·        Coffee or tea? Both, depending on time of day. Love a good cup of chamomile in the evening.
·        Dark or milk chocolate? Milk chocolate. Can’t stand it too rich.
·        Rocks or flowers? Hmm….depends on the rock, but probably flowers.
·        Night or day? Overall, I’m a night owl, but any more it seems to be day. I’m getting old, I guess.
·        Favorite color? Purple.
·        Crayons or markers? Crayons.
·        Pens or pencils? Pencils.

More about the author:
Stacy Green is fascinated by the workings of the criminal mind and explores true crime on her popular Thriller Thursday posts at her blog, Get Twisted. 
After earning her degree in journalism, Stacy worked in advertising before becoming a stay-at-home mom to her miracle child. She rediscovered her love of writing and wrote several articles for Women’s Edition Magazine of Cedar Rapids, profiling local businesses, before penning her first novel. Her debut novel, INTO THE DARK, is set in Las Vegas and features a heroine on the edge of disaster, a tormented villain, and the city’s infamous storm drains that house hundreds of homeless. 

Into the Dark by Stacy Green

A two-hundred-mile labyrinth of dark storm drains serves as a refuge for the delusional stalker who will go to any lengths to possess fragile, emotionally isolated Emilie Davis. To survive, Emilie will have to confront the secrets of her past she has kept locked away from everyone, including herself. Emilie is a master escape artist—she’s fled a manipulative mother and a controlling ex-husband. But it’s impossible to evade a stalker who uses a bank robbery as a ruse to kidnap her. He’s still out there, hiding in the Las Vegas tunnels and dodging police. Emilie’s life careens out of control as her assailant continues his pursuit. She has nowhere to turn but to Nathan Madigan, the hostage negotiator who worked the robbery. Nathan is haunted by his failure to protect a loved one fourteen years ago and dedicates his life to saving others. Determined to catch the lunatic hunting Emilie, he finds himself losing his professional detachment. He fears history is about to repeat itself if he cannot protect Emilie from the Taker’s obsession.

The police close in on the Taker’s identity as Nathan and Emilie grow closer to each other and to resolving the misery of their own pasts. At the height of The Taker’s madness, his attempt to replace someone he’s lost will either kill them all or set them free.

An Excerpt from INTO THE DARK

Moisture streamed down her face. The Taker had stayed so close, his breath against her skin and his fingers brushing against her arms more times than she could count.

“Darkness is our friend.”

The tunnels were dark. He wanted to drag her down there, stash her away in some filthy corner with no light and stale air. Locked away from everyone, forever.

Her lungs constricted as panic overwhelmed her. Her comfortable living room suddenly appeared sinister. The blowing wind outside sent a strange sort of murmur throughout the condo—a breathless, restrained whisper.

Emilie whirled in the darkness, squinting at the black lumps spread throughout the room. Her furniture, or was the Taker here? Had he somehow cut the lights to the building?

Claustrophobia attacked. The Taker closed in. His warm breath swept over her neck, and his saccharine scent crept into her nose. He had surrounded her again. She was trapped.

No. She whipped her head around searching in vain for some sign of his presence. He couldn’t be there, could he? Her tired, tormented brain was just playing a cruel trick on her. Please, just leave me alone.

Blog Tour: Dangerous Deception by Cindy McDonald (giveaway too)

Welcome to The Wormhole and my day on the tour!
It is with great pleasure that I feature Cindy McDonald and her book, Dangerous Deception from the Unbridled Series.
About the author:

Author Bio:

For twenty-six years my life whirled around a song and a dance: I was a professional dancer/choreographer for most of my adult life and never gave much thought to a writing career until 2005. Don’t ask me what happened, but suddenly I felt drawn to my computer to write about things I have experienced (greatly exaggerated upon of course) with my husband’s Thoroughbreds and the happenings at the racetrack.
Surprised? Why didn’t I write about my experiences with dance? Eh, believe it or not life at the racetrack is more…racy. The drama is outrageous—not that dancers don’t know how to create drama, believe me, they do but race trackers just seem to get more down and dirty with it which makes great story telling—great fiction.

I didn’t start out writing books, The Unbridled Series started out as a TV drama, and the Hollywood readers loved the show. The problem was we just couldn’t sell it. So one of the readers said to me, “Cindy, don’t be stupid. Turn your scripts into a book series.” and so I did!

In May of 2011 I took the big leap and exchanged my dancin’ shoes for a lap top—I retired from dance. It was a scary proposition, I was terrified, but I had the full support of my husband, Saint Bill. It has been a huge change for me. I went from dancing hard five hours a night to sitting in front of a computer. I still work-out and I take my dog, Harvey, for a daily run. I have to or I’d be as big as a house. Do I miss dance? Sometimes I do. I miss my students. I miss choreographing musicals, but I love my books and I love sharing them with you.

Suddenly, Vic finds himself between the rock and the hard place. . He has betrayed his good friend, Eric West, but will he participate in his son’s murder as well?

Oh yeah, Vic’s deception has placed the West family in more danger than they know what to do with!

My Thoughts:
This was my first Cindy McDonald read.  I am so glad I was able to participate in this tour and find a new author to add to my favorites list!  Incredible book.  Although it is book three in the series, it is fully able to stand alone.  I had not read the first two books, I have since gone out and bought them, and I was not lost nor did I ever get the feeling that I had missed something vital. 

About the book:  It is well written and engaging.  It was fast paced, but didn't leave anything out so I never felt like it was running away without me.  The plot is multifaceted and each piece is carefully created and intricately woven together.  The characters are great.  I usually find myself choosing one favorite character in each book I read, but I would be hard pressed to pick just one in this book.  I love the relationships between the West family members, everyone should be able to feel that much respect for their father and that much devotion to their siblings.  The characters are constructed with just enough flaws to make them real and believable, but also enough amazing attributes to leave you searching for such a person in your own life. 

You get to see the characters deal with, be confronted by and experience a wide range of emotions and undercurrents that are found running through this story.  I found myself experiencing it all with them, I was so into the story that it all felt personal.

I was glued to the pages as the tale unfolded to culminate at a fulfilling, yet leave you looking for the next book, ending. 

Cindy has joined us with a guest post:
Hey, remember the TV show, Batman, starring Adam West? I know, it’s a really old show, but I’m sure it’s on some cable network somewhere—they all are. Anyway, in the TV series, Cat Woman was always trying to take Batman down. She was evil. She was beautiful—in a scary kind of way. But c’mon, admit it, didn’t you always secretly want Batman and Cat Woman to hook-up?
No matter how we deny it, everyone (especially women) loves to hate a good female antagonist. They are so good at … antagonizing! As authors we love to write about our antagonists, male or female. In my first book Deadly.Com, George Smuts was my antagonist. He was creepy; he was mentally deranged. He made my reader’s skin crawl—they told me so via emails, reviews on amazon, and blog sites. I loved George and I loved the freaked-out reaction that he extracted from people. That said, my Unbridled series has a full-time antagonist within its pages who seems to really rile women. Her name is Ava West. She is a gorgeous, green eyed, redheaded, manipulative witch. She is Mike’s ex, but she still clutches a corner of his soul. When she’s not tormenting her ex, she’s got Lugowski wrapped tautly around her manicured pinky, except unbeknownst to Ava, she’d better keep him in closer check.
Oh yes, I’ve had women state that they would like to see Ava die … slowly. What? Are you kidding me? Ava is terrific! She is causing my readers to fidget in their seats while they read. In Deadly.Com she did things that made women’s eyes narrow and their brows pinch together. Well, wait to you see what she has in store for you in DANGEROUS DECEPTION. I love all of my Unbridled characters, although Ava holds a special place in my heart, or is that my modem? Truth be told, I’m most relieved that she lives inside my computer and I don’t have to deal with her in reality. Or do I? Surely there must be someone that I know who is very much like Ava West. Hmmm…I’ll have to think on that.
Now here’s the tough question about the hate that we feel for female antagonists: is it really hate that we are experiencing or is it…envy? Ouch! Ava is able to manipulate even the most alpha males in my stories. She has the power to make them see things her way, or else—or else…what? You know what—they’re not going to get to see her naked. Female antagonists are usually beautiful, as is Ava, and they make me wish that I had the manipulative might that they possess…or not.
Sorry readers, Ava West is going to be around to poke at you patience for quite some time—you loathed her in Deadly.Com,  she didn’t win any popularity contests in HOT COCO, and she’s still at it in DANGEROUS DECEPTION. However, at some point in my Unbridled Series you may find yourself rooting for her. Hey, it could happen!
Who is your favorite female antagonist? The one that really irritates you—is she from a movie, book, or TV series? Okay now, be honest—do you really hate her, or do you secretly envy her? ;}

Release Day Party! The Promise by Kim Carmichael (giveaway too)

Release Day Party The Promise

We’re happy to celebrate the release day party for “The Promise” today, a steamy paranormal romance novel by author Kim Carmichael.

Read an Excerpt!

He tilted his head. "You look older."

She forced herself to blink and to remember her goal. "Then I assume I am at last old enough to be a fit for a demon." She stepped forward, stopping less than a foot away from him. The back of her throat dried out, and she swallowed.

He put his hand to his chin, his gaze taking her in. "This old song and dance. When will you use the brains you have and leave it alone?"

His words hit her, but rather than retreating, she moved closer. The energy, the tingle, the wafts of spice encompassed her and lured her toward him. "Never."

"You were smart last time. Why don't you release me so I can do what I came here for." He glanced down at her and then shifted his focus beyond her. "I have needs as well."

"Tonight I am the one you came here for." The mention of his last visit stung, but she willed herself to keep going. She ran her fingers up the buttons of his shirt. "You always told me to take control."

He shook his head. "A lesson you learned well."

She reached up and clenched his collar in her fist. "I let you go last time, but tonight I am the one you need."

He grabbed her wrist. "I spared you before. Never forget that."

She stared right into his eyes. No weakness was allowed tonight. "It's me, Dolan. Me, or you can be celibate until the decade I do you the favor of dying. I don't care about your pain." She tensed, preparing herself for his retaliation.

"I thought I taught you better than to make demands of a demon." He pressed his palm to the side of her face.

Heat radiated through her body, sending a warning to every one of her nerve endings. "A demon who comforts a child is a failure of a demon in my book."

His jaw tightened. "That was a mistake. An oversight."

About The Promise

Title: The Promise

Author: Kim Carmichael

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Demon Dolan Ciar exists on three simple words: desire, denial, and destruction. Every four years, he is allowed one night of earthly passion to punish a deserving female. By the time he is finished, his victims are left as willing receptacles for demons yet to come.

Since she was four, a demon has been the only constant in Leora Desmond's life. He taught her how to seize control, to never give up, and to take whatever she wanted. At twenty-four, her self-centered existence is focused on one thing. She wants Dolan, and she won't be dissuaded.

A mistake brought Dolan to Leora. A promise bound him to her. Returning once again to ask for his freedom, he is faced with Leora demanding to be his next conquest. The ultimate retribution would be to take from her the ultimate symbol of her selfishness.

Now, Dolan must decide if he can doom her to life in living hell or face his own set of unearthly consequences, while Leora must choose between her pleasure and her heart.

The Promise blurs the line between good and evil, desire and love, and promises and commitment.

Kim Carmichael began writing eight years ago when her need for graphic sex scenes and love of happy endings inspired her to create her own. She has a weakness for bad boys and techno geeks, and married her own computer whiz after he proved he could keep her all her gadgets running. When not writing, she can usually be found slathered in sunscreen trolling Los Angeles and helping top doctors build their practices.
