Romance Paranormal

Working the graveyard shift at the sheriff's office is hard work. And Deputy Rain McCandless is busy keeping her dog- napping grandfather out of trouble all day. So when a sexy intruder claims to be an angel then warns her she's going to die, Rain starts to wonder if she's going off the deep end. Dillon Taylor isn't exactly an angel—he's a nephilim. He doesn't live by the same rules as angels or humans, but there is on rule he doesn't like to break: never get involved with mortals. But the old man's granddaughter is in danger and it couldn't hurt to change fate just this once...could it?

Re: Smoking Hot

SMOKING HOT sounds like an awesome read. I've added it to the top of my TGR list & if I don't win the contest, I'm running out to buy it!!!!
(QuenKne M 2:52am June 27, 2013)

I have an ice pack ready. It sounds like a great book.
Sharon Mitchell 3:01am June 27, 2013)

Looking after an aging relative is difficult. We just had grandma staying with
us for a few days. That is always an experience. Her short term memory is
basically gone. After a few time answering the same question I
occasionally start having more fun with the answers so I won't lose my
temper with her. She always has to be busy. Mom got her started knitting
again. If she doesn't think about it it goes well. When she starts
concentrating she starts to have trouble or when she sometimes comes to
the end of a row.
Laura Gullickson 5:53am June 27, 2013)

Hi QuenKne, wow, you're up early! Thanks so much for your support!

Hi Sharon--LOL I kept running out of ice when I was writing this book!
Karen Kelley 8:54am June 27, 2013)

This is really a book I'd love to read..moking Hot sounds wonderful!!!!
Bonnie Capuano 10:20am June 27, 2013)

Hi Laura! Thanks for stopping by. That's so sad. It's really hard when a relative has dementia. Usually long term memory is better. You might try asking her about the past???

Hi Bonnie! Thanks so much for your wonderful comments!
Karen Kelley 10:31am June 27, 2013)

Knowing my upbringing, I'd have a hard time believing that such a thing existed, so I'd have to have him prove that he existed. After that, then I suppose the Angelic thoughts would come. Your book sounds like the perfect start to the steamy Summer that we're having right now!! Not only do I love the cover, but I love the story line, and would love to read the book, and find out how the story ends. Congratulations on your book!!
Peggy Roberson 10:54am June 27, 2013)

I think it would be difficult to have only angelic thoughts.
Pam Howell 11:02am June 27, 2013)

I have been having the same problem as Raine - family and life. My grandparents raised me - unfortunately I now live 1000 miles away and my grandmother has stage 4 cancer and my grandfather has alzheimers. I think if an angel appeared I would be asking for help and guidance, or even an extra set of hands to help out.
Carla Carlson 11:07am June 27, 2013)

Sounds fun! Would love to read it!
May Pau 11:08am June 27, 2013)

sounds like a very good book love the cover and the name also
Denise Smith 11:21am June 27, 2013)

I love the cover and I can't wait to read this book.
Jamie Fortney 12:48pm June 27, 2013)

Oooh I like... thanks for the chance to win a copy of Smoking Hot!
Colleen Conklin 12:59pm June 27, 2013)

Sounds like a great story. Hope i get to win a copy. Thanks for the
Sarah Bauman 1:38pm June 27, 2013)

I'd try to have angelic thoughts. I'd like to read a book about an angel.
Michelle Fidler 1:49pm June 27, 2013)

Hi Peggy, thanks for dropping by! Yep, make him prove who he is! LOL Then let the fun begin.

Pam, I know I didn't when I was writing the book!

Carla, I'm so sorry about your grandparents! I'll say a prayer for them and you!

Hi May, thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!!!

Hi Denise--yeah, I love the title! One of my favs.

Ahhh, thanks Jamie.

Colleen, you're very welcome!

Hi Sarah and good luck!!!

Hi Michelle, thanks for dropping by!

L Lam---now that made me chuckle!!!
Karen Kelley 4:19pm June 27, 2013)

Fulfill all my fantasies and I'm supposed to think angelic thoughts? Lol. I
would love to read Wild About an Angel!
Linda Brennan 4:27pm June 27, 2013)

I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your books in this series! I read, Where There's Smoke and am just finishing up reading, Where There's A Will. I was hooked after reading the first was so good and a real page-turner! I definitely needed a cold shower afterwards, especially since no angel has appeared at my door! And, no, it would be hard to have angelic thoughts after what a good-looking nephilim does to you!!! Whew! Hope you keep writing these books (I don't want them to end)! You're my favorite author, for sure!
Linda Luinstra 5:46pm June 27, 2013)

Sounds like a great read! Can hardly wait!
Nancy Ludvik 5:57pm June 27, 2013)

Congratulations on your 23rd book. Sounds like another great one! Would love to win it and read Raine and Dillion's story.
Rich Cook 6:24pm June 27, 2013)

Love the humor in your books - thanks for the chance to win your latest!
Mary C 8:05pm June 27, 2013)

Wow, Congrats on 23 books and SMOKING HOT sounds like a
fantastic book to read and win too. Yes, I would love to
have an Angel/Nephilim come down to Earth and help me out
and make all my dreams come true. Yes, I would have angelic
thoughts and it would be great to know how and when you are
going to die too. Thank You so much. Cecilia CECE
Cecilia Dunbar Hernandez 9:50pm June 27, 2013)

I haven't read an angel or half angel book yet - it will be a
new world for me.
Diane Sallans 10:37pm June 27, 2013)

sounds like a fun read, ty
Debbi Shaw 10:56pm June 27, 2013)

Nephilim is a breed between angel and human. According to religious sources, they were the kind that God send the flood to destroy. Now if I had an Angel/Nephilim who save my life and really rock my world, it would be impure thoughts.
Kai Wong 1:07am June 28, 2013)

I notice angels getting into more stores, I think as long as they are interesting angels that is fine!
Clare O'Beara 11:12am June 28, 2013)

We all need an angel in our lives, even if we find them in a book. Your books are so interesting and I can't wait to read this one
C Culp 11:33am June 28, 2013)

Totally angelic thoughts. *adjusts tarnished and slightly crooked halo*
Marcy Shuler 5:22pm June 28, 2013)

An angel on my shoulder would be a cherub with arrows making
dreams a reality. Erotic Romances seem to be hot this year
and last.
Alyson Widen 4:51pm June 30, 2013)

And this looks 'smokin' hot!'
