Not-so-skilled magical apprentice Iris Bennett has one goal: to save the world from a spell gone wrong…an accident that is kinda her fault. She has only three days left to fix it, or all hell is going to break loose…maybe literally.
It's bad enough when she discovers her last chance to undo the spell is dead on the floor next to her crystal ball, but when she realizes that the dangerously sexy man standing beside the body might be the murderer, things get even more complicated.
Does she accept his magical help, or run as fast as she can from this devilishly sexy hottie who has secrets darker than the darkest recesses of hell? The problem is, she's pretty sure he's one of the good guys…until she discovers that he might not be after all…
But by then, she's already in over her head, and honestly, he really is such a temptation.
P.S. See the medallion on the cover? That means it contains Super Secret Bonus Scenes, which are extremely cool.
About the Author: S.A. Bayne (aka Stephanie Rowe) is a gift to the universe, at least according to her dogs, and everyone knows dogs are world-class judges of people. She was taught to play by the rules, but after suffering numerous apoplectic breakdowns, she realized that she had to ditch the rules, figure out her own way to live, and then turn that into a high-octane, irreverent, unpredictable-as-hell, paranormal that will make your day so much better just by reading it. And yes, she is also New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Stephanie Rowe, winner of the 2018 RITA® Award for Best Paranormal Romance. Because she's nifty like that.

P.B. Noble is so ready to become the magical Guardian of the City of Boston…until she stumbles across the murder-in-process of the current Guardian. Her rescue attempt is a total fail, and puts her face-to-face with the GoD of Evil, a bad guy so nasty that he isn't even supposed to exist.
Guess what? He does. And he's worse than anyone realizes. And, to top it off, his real target isn't the Guardian he just killed. It's P.B.
When P.B. decides not to join the GoD of Evil in his psychotic world peace plan, he puts on the pressure by kidnapping her bestie, torturing an immortal warrior that just might be her first chance at true love, and completely screwing up the opening night of her new magical night club.
If P.B. refuses to join him, everything that matters to her will be destroyed. But if she does cave to his demands, then the entire world will be annihilated. It's a tough call, really, but what's an overmatched, undertrained interim Guardian to do? Go for the option he didn't offer, which is to align with a slightly demented werewolf, recruit her all-too-human celebrity ex-boyfriend, and turn her less-than-impressive magical talent into a weapon.
Or die. That's an option too. Unfortunately.
“Good Omens . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It’s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick.”—Washington Post
According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.
So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.
And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .

Justine Bennett's life isn't the one you'd want for all eternity, which is exactly how long she's going to have to live it.
She's the sword-wielding Guardian for the Goblet of Eternal Youth, which is currently masquerading as a shape-shifting espresso machine in a fancy New York City condo. Being an immortal badass in the City that Never Sleeps sounds exciting, but Justine hasn't gotten to behead anyone in centuries, the celibacy oath she took two hundred years ago is getting to her, and her dead mom is being hotly pursued by a lovesick Satan.
But then Derek LaValle, a no-carb pretzel mogul cursed to die in a week, shows up at Justine's door to behead her and steal the Goblet. If he fails, both he and his twin will succumb to the curse, so this handsome hunk of deliciousness is not going to let anything stop him. He's charming, tempting-as-hell, and extremely determined, all the things that Justine needs to amp up her life.
Unfortunately, if Justine makes even one mistake, her mom will end up as Satan's love pancake, and her own soul will be destined for an eternity in the Chamber of Unspeakable Horrors.
Derek, however, can't afford to fail either, which means one of them needs to die. But when high-octane attraction blooms between them, killing each other no longer seems like a fantastic option. With such high stakes, they better figure it out fast, or Satan dating her mom will become the least of their worries.
Her only chance to survive her new job as an agent in a magical crime-fighting organization is her partner, a deliciously sexy half-demon who needs to stay alive as badly as she does. Neither of them has the magical ability to defeat a sociopath who has already killed seventy-six of their predecessors, but who needs skills when you have incentive?
Smoke, shadows, a hostile demon dad from the beyond, and highly paid assassins sent by her loving parents make things a little complicated for Ellie and her new partner, but what's a pair of breasts and an intimate moment for, if not to save themselves and the world?
And this is just the start.
