James’ bio used to read a lot differently than it does now. There’s the Before Miri and After Miri.

Before Miri, James loved to challenge himself—by seeing how fast he could get a girl to bed. Not the older women—they were easy. One smile from him, one well-placed compliment, or better yet, one well-placed hand, and they were his. No, it was the business women, the woman-on-a-mission that were his favorite to hunt. They were much harder to win over but when they did succumb—and they always did—they were so, so worth it.

But now, After Miri, everything’s different.

Now James is discovering there’s more to him than being good in bed. Now he enjoys making Miri groan in pleasure—from the food he’s served her. He’s studying to be a chef and hopes to open a gourmet restaurant that’s a feast for the senses, from sight to sound, to smell and . . . eventually . . . to the most exquisite taste in the world.

Sixteen-year old Desolation Black wants nothing more than to stay in Hell where it’s cold and lonely and totally predictable. Instead, she’s sent back to Earth where she must face the evil she despises and the good she always feared.

When Desi is forced to embrace her inner demon, she assumes her choice has been made—that she has no hope of being anything other than what her father, Lucifer, has created her to be. What she doesn’t count on, is finding a reason to change—something she’s never had before—a friend.


Where darkness lives, all becomes desolate . . .

It’s been two months since sixteen-year-old Desolation Black chose Earth over Hell and her friend Miri over her eternal love, Michael.

Desi goes through the motions of life: school, training, remaining vigilant against the forces of darkness, but her dreams are full of the choices she wishes she could change. When she’s injured by a strange demon, old temptations arise, and the lines between good and evil blur. Desi discovers those choices aren’t so final after all.

And this time, the power of love—for a friend, for a lover—may not be enough to save her from the darkness that lurks within.
