Christine Rains Has a New Series Coming, The 13th Floor
Awesome. I love Christine’s writing. The first of this paranormal romance series is coming out December 13th and is titled, 1301 – The Marquis.
Life after Hell isn’t more exciting than watching football and fixing a busted pipe. Once a powerful demon, Marc enjoys his quiet existence and a good cup of coffee. With big ambitions to gain his master’s favor, a trickster demon named Vetis shatters Marc’s peace and vows to deliver Marc’s head to the fires of Hell. Not before he destroys everything Marc cares about, of course.
Marc’s power has diminished over the years. Heaven will never grant him absolution, and he refuses to return to Hell. Running isn’t an option. The city of Carmine is his territory. It’s also home to his favorite cafe owner, Mae Hopkins. The dame has a lovely smile, but it’s her heart and soul that shine bright.
While his city burns and his love is captured, Marc must decide to surrender or let hate and anger fuel him to become the fearsome beast he so loathes: The Marquis. If the Marquis rises, Vetis can be defeated and Mae saved, but Marc would be lost to his demon forever.

Did you hear Hetty Locklear was written for geek girls? Insecure? Weight and food issues? Hetty’s just like you.
A New Adult Urban Fantasy, The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear is the first book in a new series. And it’s now out! My main character, Hetty, is a twenty-two-year-old stumbling about in an effort to become a full-fledged adult. She struggles with self-esteem, weight, relationships, and making the transition between college and the real world.
Graduation from community college isn’t the magic elixir Hetty Locklear counts on for becoming an adult. Her parents, who work the Renaissance fair circuit, insist she spend part of the summer with them. Hetty doubts pretending to live in the Middle Ages will help her find her way.
To make it worse, an entity haunts her at her dead-end job, warning her of a dangerous man she doesn’t know. The ghost leads her to a lover who has a lot of secrets. He pulls her farther into peril and into a strange, hidden world of genetic experimentation.
New Adult Urban Fantasy with a contemporary sci-fi twist. Mature content.
