So I Wrote a Devil Book... by Jane Kindred
The publishing biz being what it is, we didn't quite get to sisters five, six, and seven. Which I'm actually okay with. I may come back to them at some point in the future, but their stories are complicated and maybe aren't mine to tell. But I did manage to write a final companion story, Kindling the Darkness, which comes out later this year.
At any rate, Theia's story, Seducing the Dark Prince, had to be moved up. Which meant Lucien had to make his appearance. Now, Lucien isn't literally Satan, but to elaborate would mean giving too many spoilers, so suffice it to say, Lucien has issues. As you might infer from the cover, he has a bit of an Oliver Queen (the Green Arrow) complex. What he's doing nocking an arrow with his shirt off, I don't know. But who's complaining?
One of my favorite things about Lucien is that he isn’t an alpha hero. He tries to project an alpha façade, but Theia sees right through it. And when he gets in over his head with one of my actual alphas, well, let’s just say, that was my favorite scene to write.
The whole gang is here in Book 4—all of the Carlisle sisters and their dragon-shifter beaux. And a certain character you probably wish was dead rears his ugly head again. But I promise, he’ll get his comeuppance. As Evie says to Beni in The Mummy (the good one, with Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz), "Nasty little fellows such as yourself always get their comeuppance... Always."
Seducing the Dark Prince is available now from the following retailers:
Amazon.com | Barnes & Noble | BookDepository.com | BAM | Booktopia | iBooks | Kobo
