Angela Waters juggles two high-stress jobs: nurse and earthbound angel. On a rare girls’ night out, she intervenes and saves the life of Mason Kearney, a stripper with southern charm and a secret. It’s a move that will force her to contemplate why in all the heavens she puts up with the injustice of being an angel, which leads to a bombshell that challenges everything she’s ever known.

In the midst of falling for the Alabama boy, she’s in for the fight of her life when a demon, hell-bent on taking her wings, shows up at the most inopportune times.

With a family of angels rallying behind her, she’s sent on a mission to learn everything about them, herself, and evil, to save all the earthbounds from an untimely demise.

Can Angela survive with her heart and her wings intact?



My Favorite Scene to Write in Virtue and Honor
by Randi Perrin

There are a lot of really good scenes in Virtue and Honor, so it’s hard to pin down just one.The prologue was written to be jarring to anyone who was vested in the series, and I relished in how much I was going to shake up everyone’s world. I was literally doing the evil cackle as I wrote that.

The opening scene at the strip club, that one was fun as well. The first sex scene in this one took several tries to get right, but I loved how it turned out. It’s sappy and romantic, which is generally not my style, but for these two, it was so perfect.

I also had so much fun writing interactions between Mason and Angela’s dad. Next to Cheryl, he’s the most sarcastic character in the bunch, and so very much fun to write.

However, if I’m forced to choose, and it looks like I am, my favorite scene is the one in the garage when Angela is running late and has to pick up her work badge from Mason.

Why?

It actually happened. It didn’t involve a vintage Trans Am, rather my Mazda 3, and a pack of hot dogs instead of a work badge.

My friend apologized all over herself, as she knows how I am about my car, but I was laughing so damn hard I was crying. She looked at me and said, “that has to go in your next book.”

My response: “Challenge accepted.”

It took a couple tried to get it right, as my first instinct was to have it happen with a different character. With a pack of hot dogs. However, as writing is a whole lot of trial and error, that didn’t feel right, so I scrapped it and tried again with different circumstances. Finally, success.

Lesson learned: never throw something to someone in a running car in the rain.

Love has never been Cheryl Brigham’s plan. She’s not cut out for second dates, relationships, or happily ever afters.

All that changes when she’s on vacation in Paris. First dates lead to second dates, which leads to a whole lot more than she ever bargained for—but she knows it’s all over when she returns home. That’s okay with her.

Until it’s not.

When it’s no-strings-attached, what will Cheryl do when her heart gets tangled up?

 

I’ve heard it said that vampire romances are over.
Teenage, angsty vampires that sparkle in the sun, sure. Those can be so over, put a stake in their hearts, chop off their heads, throw water on them—whatever we can do to make them die a horrible, grisly vampire death.
No, seriously. Don’t. (Down vampire hunters, down.)
Judgments about the story, the characters, and writing (and believe me, I’ve heard it all) about Twilight, I think it ushered in the era of the paranormal romance.
It’s always been there. People have been writing about vampires (Anne Rice, anyone?), shifters, and other paranormal creatures forever. I think, though, we can actually thank Anne Rice and Stephenie
Meyer for making it more mainstream.
Mainstream does not equal bad or sell-out either.
It means making it more accessible to those who would normally look at a paranormal and toss it on the floor as if it were the devil itself.
Has paranormal peaked? I certainly hope not, considering I write it!
Peak or no, there will always be a place for it. (Hear me out.)
We, as a whole, turn to fiction as a means to escape. It’s the very reason we love books, movies, television shows—they transport us somewhere else, anywhere else. For a brief time, our problems are not our own and instead we’re taking that ride with Louis and Lestat, Edward and Bella, or heck, even my Sera and Cheryl.
Paranormal has the unique ability to take that entire escapism a step further. It’s fun to imagine a world where these things are possibilities, a world where magic, vampires, shifters, or angels exist. With all the problems facing the world today, who doesn’t want to escape into another world? I know that’s one of the reasons I like to write it so much. I like tiptoeing around this world I created where my characters can fly; can hold out her hand and take someone’s life; can touch a stranger with grace and change that person’s life forever.
Of all the paranormal creatures out there, why did I choose angels? I get this question. A lot.
Truth be told, I didn’t choose angels. Angels chose me. Virtue of Death was going to be contemporary. No, really. I decided to give her an angel wing back tattoo, and then I said, “Well, what if she really was an angel?” Thus, my entire outlook—on the book, on my career, on everything—changed. (For the better, I think.)
Is it a challenge? Absolutely. But I love it for several reasons.
One, it’s not common. Who wants to do something everyone else has done? I pride myself on walking to beat of my own drummer, out of rhythm though that may be.
Two, it was a challenge. It still is a challenge. Being one of the lesser used paranormal creatures, I had a little bit of leeway with the way I wanted to handle them. (Case in point: my angels don’t have feathers! I was adamant about that. My creatures, my rules.) But I also run into religion. A lot of it.
That’s not to say there’s anything wrong with religion. However, how much of it do I want to keep, and how much do I want to fictionalize? How do I write angels without any major religious overtones? (My answer: take everything you knew about angels and throw it out the window.)
In October, I was at a convention and people would pick up Virtue of Death, compliment the cover (as well they should, it’s gorgeous), and then ask what it was about. With each sentence in my elevator pitch they’d step farther and farther away, “she’s going to hell” painted on their face. (Sometimes I forget I live in the Bible belt. Oops.)
Three, why not?
My mom has read both Earthbound Angels books, and the first thing she said to me after reading Virtue of Death was “You’re going to pay for how you wrote Gabriel.”
*shrug*
I’m not scared.
After all. It’s just fiction. Just escapism, and we all need that. Probably even Gabriel.

His shaggy, sandy-blond hair covered his eyes, and a deep tan highlighted his sharp cheekbones. He had a baby face; hell, compared to me he was a baby. Still, that silky-smooth face called out to be kissed without mercy.
I wanted to be the one to do just that.
He pushed the hair out of his eyes. The chocolate-brown pools that hid underneath were visible for a brief moment before gravity won the battle, and his hair fell right back to where it had started.
His constant battle with his hair was one of those things I had always adored about him. Every time he ran his hands through his hair, I couldn’t help the twinge of jealousy I felt. I wanted to be the one to unearth those eyes that matched the shade of my morning coffee.

 

I was pretty sure Blake didn’t know anything about my feelings for him, and that was for the best. For the sake of both our jobs, I kept my emotions in check, burying those feelings as deep as I possibly could. The last thing I wanted to do was have my way with him and then have things go south. They always went south for me—and then I’d be stuck having awkward encounters with him every day, or even worse, he’d leave, and I’d have to get used to a new delivery driver. Neither situation was appealing, so I did what I had to do to maintain the status quo. I even kept my thoughts about him secret from my best friend, Lydia, the manager of Parts and More. I already knew my obsession with her employee was taboo; I didn’t need to give her the chance to mock me for it, too.
