Guuuuuyyyys, this was my first published book and it makes me feeeeeel things. Good things. Terrifying things. Like how I broke out in a cold sweat when I hit that publish button.
Bas and Evie, man. I set out to write a surly, ANGRY demon trapped in a basement whose only chance of escape lies with a broken, beaten down werewolf. What I ended up with was a couple I STILL think about several years later.
Bas is certainly angry. He’s smart and crafty and he’s mad at himself for getting caught. He’s mad at his captor for imprisoning him. He’s mad at the quiet werewolf who hides herself away in the basement.
Then he comes face to face with her and the anger morphs into something a little more…earthy, shall we say?
For her part, Evie has reached her breaking point. Her father terrorizes and abuses her and none of the pack will step in to stop him. She’s resigned to what’s happening to her, but she’s not willing to let her father do the same to the demon he’s captured.
So she tries to help.
MAN, I love these two. While book 1 ends on a HFN, book 2 gives us more insight into Bas and Evie’s relationship. And book 3? It’s written and it’s coming. At some point.
Like I said, I couldn’t shake my angry demon and his broken wolf. Honestly, it’s not like I tried terribly hard, either.

Bas wants out.
Held captive by a crazed Alpha, demon Bastael hates all those he’s come across on the mortal plane. When a damaged werewolf falls into his path, he’s determined to use her and find a way to escape.
Evie wants to be safe.
Abused by her Pack and afraid for her life, Evie hides in the dark corners of the basement. The demon that’s already down there? He’s better than the Alpha upstairs.
But neither of them expects the connection that sets them both on fire.
With the Alpha’s lust for power escalating, Bas and Evie will have to find a way to break free or die trying.
Warning: This book contains one cocky demon and one werewolf who’s stronger than she looks. That’s right, folks… If the basement is a rockin’, don’t come a knockin’!
