Today I want to give away one of my last ARCs of THE DEMON IN ME to a commenter I’ll choose at random on Tuesday, April 6th at 9:00 pm EST.
Have I mentioned that Publisher’s Weekly calls this book “funny, suspenseful, and frequently hot”? Yes, indeedy!
Here’s a short excerpt as my heroine Eden readies herself for bed while dealing with the difficulties of having an inner demon.
Eden pulled off her shirt and jeans, kicking them over onto her fuzzy pink bathmat, and then reached around to unhook her bra. She let it fall to the floor.
“I’m feeling much better now,” Darrak said.
She stifled a scream and clamped her hands over her bare breasts. “Don’t sneak up on me like that!”
“Did I interrupt something?” There was a short pause. “Oh, I see. Don’t let me stop you from getting naked. Please, continue.”
Eden scanned her reflection with wide eyes. Could she see the demon inside of her? A shadow in her eyes? Did she look possessed?
Nope. There was nothing noticeable. Other than the deep voice in her head only she could hear.
“This should be interesting.” Darrak sounded amused. “As I said before, I’ve never shared living space with a woman before. I honestly never would have guessed black lace panties for you. But I do approve.”
She glared at her reflection, feeling equal parts anger and embarrassment from being caught half-naked by the demon. “I think we’re going to need to set some boundaries.”
“Then I suggest you don’t look at yourself in the mirror when you’re in a state of undress. It’s the only way I can see you—all of you, at the moment.”
She turned away from the mirror. “Fine.”
“Isn’t it a little early to have Christmas hand towels out? Or do you use those all year round?”
She looked at the floor instead. The last thing she needed was a demon critiquing her lousy decorating skills.
“Darrak—” she let out a shuddery breath “—I need my privacy.”
“That’s going to be difficult. For obvious reasons.”
