Tagline:
A deal with a demon, a biker psychic and the girl who
might just be his salvation… if the demon doesn’t get to her first.
Blurb/Book Description:
Dante isn’t your typical medium. With his leather
jacket, tattoos and piercings, he looks more at home on his motorbike than he
does holding a séance and Katherine has no intention of getting involved with
him. He’s the complete opposite of the kind of man she wants and represents
everything she’s tried to leave behind, but she needs a medium and he’s the
best one around.
Dante’s never allowed himself to get close to anyone
for fear of putting them in danger. His craving for Katherine is about to bring
his worst nightmares to life.

Short Excerpt: BLOGGERS CHOICE
Excerpt 1:
He shrugged out of
my grasp, twisting his face away and avoiding my eyes. “I’m trouble, Kitten. If
they’re your friends, that’s great. You don’t need me hanging around as well.”
“You’re scared.”
This time his eyes locked onto mine,
narrow and flinty. “What did you say?”
I lifted my chin. “Scared.”
A muscle jumped in his cheek. “Yeah? And
just what am I supposed to be scared of, Kitten?” He took a step toward me.
“You?” The toes of his heavy boots touched mine. I could smell coffee on his
breath, hear his uneven breathing.
“I told you, Dante. I’m not afraid of
you.” I kept my arms by my sides, my hands loose and relaxed. He took a quick
breath and I leapt in. “The idea that someone else has a Talisman. It’s rattled
you.”
The flicker of fear in his eyes told me
everything. Squashing down my own inadequacies, I moved forward and closed the
gap. Before he could demur, I draped my arms around his neck and pressed my
lips against his. It was meant to be a peck, a light touch of comfort. I didn’t
expect it to ignite.
I could
feel everything—the softness of his cool lips, damp with rain; his prickly
stubble against my chin; tight arms that wrapped around me; one hand on the
small of my back, the other closing around the nape of my neck. He growled deep
in his throat and kissed me back, hard. Then his mouth slanted, the kiss went
deeper in a scorching blast I felt down to my knees. My hands moved of their
own accord, burrowing into his hair, pulling his head further down. He tasted
of coffee and something dark and exotic. Dante was delicious.
Excerpt 2:

Dante’s breath hitched. He
flinched, and a shudder ran up my arm. As he lifted his head I felt the
temperature plummet. The candles nearest to him flickered and bobbed as though
in a breeze and I shivered, chills oozing down my neck.

“Hello, Gabriel.” Dante sounded polite,
respectful. Beside me, Suki gasped, her fingers closing tighter around my hand.
One by one, the candles flickered and stuttered, the flames waved crazily and
almost blew out, before righting themselves. It looked as though an unseen
child crawled around the room, puffing at each one in turn. I shivered and
tucked my feet in tighter, huddling into myself to keep warm.
“Please show yourself to the circle. Come
and talk to us, Gabriel.”
I wrinkled my nose. What was that weird
smell? Like rotting meat.
The outer candles shimmied in turn, but
faster now. Dante spoke again, calm and measured. “Gabriel. I summon you to the
circle.”
Suki’s chest heaved, her eyes wide and
scared in the dim lights.
The candlelight steadied. Dante’s hand
relaxed a fraction, and he sucked in a deep breath. Was this it? Would Gabe
appear? The stink faded, and I turned my head to look at Dante just as Suki
squealed and a tiny spotlight in the ceiling exploded. Poof. One by one,
the recessed bulbs sparked and shattered, tiny glass fragments raining down on
us. Poof. Josh swore under his breath and I sought my voice. Poof.
“Don’t break the circle, keep your hands
linked.” Yes, I’d taken Nanette’s role.
Poof. Slivers of glass in my hair. I gripped Dante ever tighter.
I kept my head down to avoid the falling glass, but focused on him through the
curtain of my hair. He stared at the far wall, his face a mask. I looked too. A
column of mist hovered in front of the door, tendrils snaked along the floor
and washed around the circle, nudging the salt lines. It’s trying to get in,
I realized, my heart speeding up. Poof. The final spotlight blew out,
leaving us illuminated only by candles. I shivered, trembling from head to toe.
My teeth would be chattering in another minute.
Dante
gasped, and his head lolled forward. I blinked as the room began to dim. Oh
God
. One by one, the outer candles winked out, invisible fingers pinching
the wicks. I could feel Suki’s terror, the trembling cascading down through her
hand. I tried to stay calm. Just the inner eight candles left. The stink of
rotting meat returned. I wanted to cover my nose, but daren’t break the circle.
And then Dante spoke in a voice I didn’t recognize.

Author Bio:
Romance
author Sofia Grey spends her days managing projects in the corporate world and
her nights hanging out with wolf shifters and alpha males. She devours pretty
much anything in the fiction line, but she prefers her romances to be hot, and
her heroes to have hidden depths. When writing, she enjoys peeling back the
layers to expose her characters’ flaws and always makes them work hard for
their happy endings.
Music is interwoven so tightly into
my writing that I can’t untangle the two. Either I’m listening to a playlist on
my iPod, have music seeping from my laptop speakers, or there’s a song playing
in my head – sometimes on auto-repeat.
