RELIC and TRINITY ON SALE! 99 cents!

Click on covers to go directly to their AMAZON.COM pages…

 

99 CENTS!

Raphael, a Brethren Savior, an angel with a forgotten past, has lost his power to heal and is on a self-imposed guilt trip to get it back. If he can’t, his tour of eternal duty as Brethren Savior will be revoked. On his journey, he winds up enmeshed in a web of attempted murder and resurrection all thanks to a woman he’s only seen in a photograph and by chance on an Arizona desert hiking trail.

Serena Sikes is a wanted woman. Desired by “undesirables” for a gift her brother gave her- a stolen relic with suspected healing powers. Hunted down in the Arizona desert and left for dead, she is found by none other than the angel who cannot heal.

Raphael and Serena are inexorably bound together, for locked deep within the relic’s heart had lived the soul of his long lost wife. Now, it resides inside Serena. Evil lurks around every corner as Raphael tries to keep both Serena and his dead wife’s soul alive and lustful temptation at bay.

Three souls bound together by an ancient relic, bound by a timeless gift, and bound by a love that is eternal.

 

99 cents!

One way or another, terror will reign tonight.

School teacher and single mom, Emma Livingston, has been through hell—and back so she thinks. While dealing with the night terrors and active imagination of her five-year old daughter, Hannah, she attempts to lead a normal life. That is, until the demon from those nightmares pays her a visit, too, and threatens both of their lives. Desperate, she reaches out for help—and finds Michael waiting.

Michael D’Angelo is known to everyone in Prophet’s Point, Arizona, as their loving elementary school principal. But to The Brethren, he is the most powerful Protector. Immortal and angelic does not mean he’s without doubts or fears, as protecting Emma and Hannah from Evil tests his ability to fight his tortured past.

As the Trinity is formed, ancient secrets are revealed and faith is tested. When a prophecy is exposed, Hannah becomes the main target and Emma wonders if a normal life will ever be possible again. Hope is like an anchor, but can a mother, her daughter, and an angel overcome the evil determined to annihilate the world?

RELIC RELEASES TODAY!

Welcome to my RELEASE PARTY for RELIC! There’s champagne flowing in the fountain, and chocolate of every kind imaginable right at your fingertips. I’ve got virtual party favors… ANGELS! for you all to grab up before you go.

But first, before we get this party started, I must admit I’m EXHAUSTED! I’ve stressed my body to the limit and have been going to a reflexologist to deal with my horrid upper-back pain. Of course, it’s from writing. I suffer for my art. LOL But I’ll never give it up for anything. I’m so excited to have you read RELIC, I’m beside myself. But if I’m to enjoy myself at my own party, I’m gonna have to relax…

So, I’ve decided to run a bubble bath. I think that’ll do the trick very nicely. Especially if the Brethren decide to pop in. Care to join? Here’s what I had in mind:

   or…

   then again, we could soak in this…

    but I think I’ve found perfection…

    ahh….

Oh, boys! I’m ready for you! And so is the world, for your story. So without further ado… here’s an exclusive excerpt from RELIC, not found ANYWHERE! And after, stay around for the party favors… pics of angels for you to copy. Enjoy!

RELIC EXCERPT:

“Will you grant us your gift?” Cowen purred.

“No, I can’t,” she whispered through her agony and astonishment. “I won’t.”

“By the Gods.” The miscreant scrubbed his face with his hands and paced
around her broken body. “Mongrel, look for the mark, man. Look for the mark!”
“Where would it be?” He slunk over to Sirona’s broken body as she fought for
every shallow breath.

“It should be by her right shoulder, idiot. Master’s only told us a dozen or so
times already! Now look!” Without ceremony, Mongrel quickly ripped the jadecolored
gown from her right shoulder. She wondered what her birthmark, a
golden scar in the shape of a scepter, had to do with anything.

“I found it!”

“Good, now let me have a look at her.” He pushed Mongrel aside as he
approached Sirona with a contemptuous glare. “How dare you deny me such a
simple request? If you won’t give me your gift, then no one will have the
opportunity either. Such a shame and a waste not to share your bountiful gifts
with your followers.” He spat on her, and she flinched. “I give you one last chance
to do the right thing. Give us your gift or die.”

“An feidir le heinne cuidiu liom? Can anyone help me?” she whispered in hope
of an answer, but felt no presence. Where is my love’s connection to me? “Graim
thu, anam chara. I love you, Raphael, my soul mate.” With tears now streaming
down her cheeks, she raised her voice and spoke clearly. “I choose death,
heathen, and when my soul returns, my life shall be renewed while your body rots
in the ground with maggots feasting on your flesh!”

Cowen took his dagger from its sheath and thrust it straight through the
scepter mark. Golden light spilled from the gaping wound as Sirona keened with
her last breath, “Raphael!”

***

“Raphael,” Serena whispered as her eyes opened. She turned her head to the
right and saw the relic fisted tightly in her hand. Searing pain in her right
shoulder blade sent shockwaves down her arm. She winced as she sat up and
leaned against her bed. She looked for the source of the pain, but she saw no
wound. As she massaged the area, the pain gradually subsided into nonexistence.
Vague memories echoed through her mind like a fading dream, both terrifying
and puzzling her. She’d been chased, cornered, and kidnapped. And the pain in
her shoulder—she’d been stabbed. She felt her shoulder again. What the hell just
happened?

Yummy, right?! So go and grab your copy today! It’s available at:

How An Angel Lost His Mojo (and how he plans on getting it back)

How An Angel Lost His Mojo (and how he plans on getting it back)

Raphael, immortal Brethren Warrior, has seen his fair share of death and destruction since manifesting on earth a couple of millennia ago. Nothing had ever fazed him in the least, nor was there anyone he couldn’t save… until last year.

Last year was a year of drastic change. During an apocalyptic war between the Brethren and Evil his teammate, Brethren Warrior Seraphiel, fell at the hands of Agremon, second in command to Namirha, and once a Brethren as well. He tried to save him, but once an angel’s wing is severed from the body, there is nothing that can be done. Unless you are part of the Trinity. Raphael is not. And the Trinity had not yet been initiated. This dealt him a heavy blow, to say the least.

A short while after Seraphiel’s death, Namirha captured the Great Savior Mother and tortured her to near death. Again, Raphael came up impotent to bring her back. With the Trinity formed, they were able to do so. Raphael walked away from the Brethren’s victory over Evil with none of the happiness one would expect. His foundation had been completely torn asunder and his faith in himself ripped to shreds.

He is currently suffering from a case of healer’s block, unable to do more than provide a band-aid of sorts to those in need. Succumbing to a bad case of guilt, he’s been doing his best to get his mojo back. Visiting specific spiritual sites in Sedona, Arizona, he’s hoping to heal himself and become relevant to the Brethren and the mortal world again. If he can’t, he will have no choice but to return to the Beyond, a broken angel.

**Relic, Book 2 in the Brethren Series, releases on January 27th from Decadent Publishing. It will be available through Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble, along with many other eBook online book sellers.**

How DOES one get their mojo back after it’s been shattered? If you have some advice for Raphael regarding this guilt he’s been harboring, please leave it in the message area and I’ll be sure to give it to him!

RELIC is ONE WEEK AWAY FROM RELEASE!

Can I TELL you how excited I am that my second book is releasing next FRIDAY?! Those of you who have been following my blog since the beginning of my journey into publishing know how thrilling an experience this has been for me. One book published, and knowing there was more to follow was awesome. But now, actually being able to show two books to people will give a legitimacy to the series that I’ve been craving. With Elixxir nearly done and poised for submission, I’ve settled nicely into this career as author. The sky’s the limit in my opinion, and I meet each new challenge with enthusiasm and an All-In attitude.

In honor of RELIC releasing next Friday, I’m offering up a delicious buffet of hunky angels for you to feast on! Enjoy! And, by the way, NO CALORIES!

             

AND OF COURSE, HOW CAN I FORGET OUR LOVELY BRETHREN?!

       

MICHAEL                                 RAPHAEL                                  NATHANAEL
