As a half-demon paranormal bounty hunter, Gisele is used to flirting with death, but stealing a curio and opening a portal to Hell’s demon court is more than your average day job.

Now, she’s partnered with an infuriatingly handsome demon, Shade, who has more levels of grey than she can count.

Who can she trust to help save the city as Baltimore burns to the ground and ghouls roam the streets?

With a white-hot attraction burning between them and secrets blocking their path, Gisele must face her past and venture into the twisted heart of the demon royal court.

But with no memory of her past…

…will she be able to save their future?

Hell has come to collect…
…but Gisele Walker has no plans to pay the debt.

Thanks for hosting!

Good morning! Thank you so much for having me, BooksChatter and readers.

This release as gone absolutely amazingly thanks to you all for checking out the book and helping to spread the word of its sale — for most of the week I've been hanging out in the top 50 books for my romance and fantasy categories next to Neil Gaiman, Shayne Silvers, and Shannon Mayer which is such a dream come true!

I'm a professional video game writer and a long time fan of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. This novel was a Romance Writers of America Golden Heart finalist for paranormal romance. It's the first novel I've written (but many more are to come - book 2 in the series is slated for Spring 2020), so when I was writing it, I wanted to toss in all of my favorite tropes:

- strong, kick-butt female protagonist
- hate-to-love / enemies-to-lovers
- tall dark and broody (and snarly and monstrous but secretly sweet) hero
- forbidden love
- lots of fight scenes with monsters
- danger and suspense!!!
- smoking hot sex

What are some of your favorite tropes in paranormal and fantasy romance, readers?

Don't forget to enter the URBAN FANTASY BOOK BUNDLE give away in the post. I'm giving out books by some of my favorite authors like Ilona Andrews and Nalini Singh.

Love always, and love like hell,
