When Guardian Angel, Evangeline, fell in love with her human charge, Liam, she never expected it to come with such a high price. She was perfectly fine watching his life from a distance, but when Liam prays for guidance and he can suddenly hear her, Evangeline can’t help but confess her love.
However, there are laws in place-laws strictly separating the affections of humans and angels-and Evangeline knows it. If the Guild found out about her love, she could be sent to Purgatory-or worse.
Unfortunately for them both, Liam’s prayer opened him up to more than just hearing Evangeline. All the demons in the known universe come calling to answer his prayer and one of them overheard Evangeline’s confession. Unless she can stop the demon from turning them into the Guild, it will mean the end of everything.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
There was an episode of Angel (I Will Remember You) that has sat with me since it first aired and I wanted to create a story that had the same emotional impact that story had on me. At the time, I had never watched Buffy or Angel, but happened to catch it on TV. That episode not only pulled me into the Buffyverse, but I have since been a Joss Whedon fanatic.
My story, Love is a Merciless God, may not have a slayer in love with a vampire, but it DOES have a big helping of forbidden love with tons of twists you won't see coming. 😉
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Most of the times, my characters come to me, not the other way around. Both Liam and Evangeline are no exception. I sat with the story a bit and they made themselves known very early on.
Instantly, I take a defensive posture, my elemental sword springing to life in my hand with magically imbued ice creeping up the blade like frost climbing a window. It calms elemental forces any demon possesses—putting them in their place when necessary. It’s by no means as powerful as the element of spirit—but that’s a power only meant for crossing over our human charges.
Narrowing my eyes, I can’t tell which demon lingers here—but none of them mean candy and rainbows.
“Liam,” I warn, my voice calm and steady, “quickly—go inside and do not come out until I say it’s safe.”
His eyes widen, and he looks over his shoulder, trying to see the source of danger.
“What—what’s going on?” he asks, his voice on the edge of quivering.
“Please, go inside—” I repeat. “I’ll come for you when the danger has passed.”
Before I finish my sentence, the demon leaps from the bushes; his turquoise eyes flash in contrast with his golden locks, as his perfectly shaped lips curl into a sneer. Between his perfectly groomed appearance and stylish outfit—I don’t even have to sense the sexual energy rolling off of the demon to know instantly what he is.
“How touching, angel—how very touching of you to spill such… sensitive details so freely. It touched my cold, dead heart. It truly did,” he says, crossing his arms behind his back and taking another step forward. “I’m curious, does your ever-important Guild know of your affections to this… lower being? I’m surprised they approve of such a thing. And if not… well… it would be a pity for these details to somehow make it back to them.”
I tug my brows in, clutching my sword tightly. “I wouldn’t worry about me, demon—you should be more worried about yourself,” I say, summoning the support from the building blocks of the Universe to aid me and guide my sword.
