Book two of Twilight of the Gods
Raquel Lindgren knows what her future holds. An arranged marriage. A new home in Ragnarok, Iowa, with another clan of refugees from Asgard. She should be happy. But there's a mental block preventing her from tapping in to her true abilities as a witch. And she's more attracted to the best man than she is to the groom…
Fen can't believe he's falling for his best friend's future wife. As a hound, a wolf shifter, his duty lies with the pack. He's seen too many hounds destroyed by love, and he's sworn never to take a mate, never to have children of his own. He can't deny his desire for Raquel, but she deserves more than he can offer her.
Raquel's been raised to trust in magic, her clan and her destiny. But when a vengeful demon threatens to break out of Asgard and destroy the clan, Raquel learns she must trust in love if she is to take the future into her own hands.

Allow me to introduce you…
She dropped onto the couch and started to prop her feet on the table before jerking them back.
She flushed. It was too easy to forget herself around Fen. Her manners flew right out the
window. He hooked his hand under her knee before her foot hit the ground and pulled it back up.
“What’s the point in keeping thirty-year-old furniture around if you can’t abuse it?”
“Are the gardening books your mom’s?”
“I don’t look like a gardener to you?”
His grin invited honesty. “You look nothing like a gardener.”
He looked like trouble. His tattoo peeked from beneath the sleeve an old T-shirt. He was
still wearing shit-kicker boots and the worn-out jeans that suited him perfectly. He had the kind of body jeans were created for. Narrow hips and long, straight legs. He looked like a loner and an artist. He looked dangerous—and not to cabbage worms and squash bugs.
“It gets me outside, you know, when I’m not killing things.” He took a long pull from his
bottle, but kept his eye on her.
“So you’re a nerd.”
He choked on his swallow. “You think I’m a nerd?”
“Afraid so.” She ticked off her fingers. “You live in your parent’s house.”
“I bought my parent’s house,” he corrected. “The housing market’s not the greatest here,
She held up a second finger. “You have enough computer equipment in here that I bet
you’ll have to upgrade the electrical system soon...if you haven’t already.”
“Last year, before I moved in. It’s why I haven’t had the extra money to decorate.”
“You enjoy reading and gardening.” She paused. “Do you have a cat?”
He winced. “She’s a stray. Scared to death of me, but she keeps coming back for the
“I’d be surprised if you could coax a cat into living with a hound.”
“Smart creatures, cats. So what’s the verdict?”
She wiggled her fingers and dropped her hand. She hadn’t made a five count, but she
thought she’d made her point anyway. “Nerd. Even if you don’t look like one.”
“And what does a nerd look like exactly?”
Not sweet and sexy and dangerous.
“Different from you,” she said after a too-long pause, feeling suddenly that it wasn’t the
best idea for her to have come here alone.
Where sequels come from
Demon Crossings was originally intended to be a stand-alone book, but its sequel Witch Bound
releases in just a few weeks. Squee! So how does that happen you ask? Well, for one thing, the
world was great fun to write in. It’s about the descendants of Norse gods living in the American
Midwest. A small farming community with big secrets. Sword wielding warriors, shapeshifters
and witches surrounded by miles and miles of cornfields. In the end though it wasn’t the world
that drew me back, it was one particular character—Fen.
In Demon Crossings, Fen is an important but secondary character. He’s a member of the hunt
protecting earth from invasion by the sons of Múspell. Fen is a shapeshifter—a hound whose
family line descends from Fenris, the great wolf of Norse mythology. He’s a motorcycle rider
and tattoo artist. And because hounds mate for life to the first woman they have sex with, he’s
also still a virgin. People asked for more Fen and to be honest by the time they were asking, I
already knew how his story would go.
