Taking a break from the six characters for a bit. I’ve been working on the Devil’s Mistress.

One dreary Sunday having just watched a re-run of Buffy, she kiddingly asks him if he’s ever dated a vampire. He replies in the affirmative.


“When I felt her lips on my neck I spun around and confronted her startled face.

In a husky voice she said Oh and I knew she recognized me for what I am, and not the dinner she had anticipated.

She was beautiful; black hair just up to her shoulders, straight and smooth, and full crimson lips.

Her velvet cloak matched her deep green eyes.

The effect dazzled even me.

I cannot imagine how a mortal would have reacted.”

The Devil’s Mistress, a paranormal romance, is about an unlucky in love woman and a man who works in mid-management for the Devil. He’s the one who dispatches souls to his boss, Mr. D. She vows to restore her lover’s humanity and not lose him in the process. The story is told entirely from her point of view.

    Nah – not the current – hmm don’t know if she’s jealous good question

    Love the surprise when she realizes who he is.

  14. Lynne Murray says:

    There are lots of layers here–current girlfriend hearing about old girlfriend (she did ask, but it’s still an emotionally dangerous topic), info about how his soul-reaping business works, and the perils of dating a devil’s assistant! Cool six!
