The ones we write about are gorgeous, have lots of stamina (be still my beating heart!), would fight to the death on your behalf, and give you the adventure of a lifetime.
So what’s so special about Jared, AKA Patient 1172, of
So why would Dr. Lili Carter fall for him?
He’s a demon and knows just what the sexy witch needs.
She needs him.
Lili was first introduced in 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover. All the reader knew back then was that she was a doctor and a good friend of Jazz Tremaine.
I have this idiosyncrasy with my writing. I want each book to be perfect for the witch I’m writing next. You have no idea what stories I tossed around in my head until I settled on this story. I was able to bring in one of my favorite cities,
That’s the nice thing about witches who are 700+ years young. They’ve lived through a lot of historical periods and I can bring them in.
For Lili, I had her once working as a matron in the English hospital known as Bedlam. Over the centuries she was able to move past that horrific period only to be thrown back into it when she returned to Crying Souls Asylum with their ogre aides and cells for the inmates. Including one fascinating inmate named Jared, who just might not be as insane as the head doctor claims he is.
Shadow demon Jared may have been a prisoner/patient for many years, but he’s somehow managed to hold on to a little sanity. Especially when a lovely doctor takes an interest in him.
Then the question is what kind of sidekick will Lili have? Clichéd, perhaps, but a cat came to mind. It’s no joke that cats are arrogant, but Cleo, yes THAT Cleo, is beyond that mindset. The fluffy Persian shows the reader a whole new feline nature.
A Demon Does it Better is darker than my previous books. Shows pieces of history that are equally dark, but everyone who knows me, also is aware my twisted sense of humor will rear its head and make the readers laugh too.
I write what I read. I hope my readers will smile as they read the book. That they’ll mutter because they can’t put the book down. Sigh over the sexy hero and identify with the heroine. That they’ll wish the magickal creatures would show up in their house.
If I’ve done that, then I know I’ve done my job.
Wait a minute. It’s not a job. It’s a labor of love.
And is there anything better than that?
Well, except for chocolate!
So tell me, what do you consider a labor of love? Do you sense that in the books you read?
