Katia may be a celebrated musician, but she'd always felt a little like an outsider looking in. Who knew that being abducted by a handsome stranger would set her on a crash course with her destiny...

Luc has spent an eternity keeping everyone and everything at a distance as an unstoppable darkness consumes his soul. Will his beautiful captive be his salvation, or will they both be consumed by the ultimate evil...



Excerpt

As Katia smiled
back at Sergei, she noticed that the stranger at the neighbouring table was
watching her again.  She did a half turn
and reached down as though she were looking for something in her purse, angling
herself towards him.  Taking a deep
breath, she looked up and found her eyes locked on his.  There was something riveting about him, but
she couldn’t put her finger on exactly what it was.  Perhaps it was the sum total of everything
that made her unable to tear her eyes away.
He looked like he had been carved from a piece of marble.  His skin was pale and perfect, not a single
freckle, scar, line, or wrinkle.  Calvin
Klein models had nothing on this guy, with his defined jaw, and full lips that
were just begging for a kiss.  His hair
was a tumbling mass of waves the colour of the sun, his eyes were the most
unusual grey Katia had ever seen, like storm clouds.  He also had the longest eyelashes she’d ever
seen; women paid good money to get lashes like that.  He truly had the face of an angel, like
something you’d see on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.  At odds with his angelic look was the black leather
motorcycle jacket, black jeans, and black combat boots.  There was also something off in his
expression, something hard about the way he was looking at her, like she had
somehow ruined his day without her knowledge.

Interview with Amanda Jones 

Where do you get inspiration for your stories?
I’ve always been interested in the supernatural, so that was a natural jumping off point.  I’m also interested in questions of good vs. evil – what makes the bad guy bad.  Lucifer is the biggest baddy in the fallen angel world – so I wanted to explore what made him do what he did, and could he be redeemed?  Can we hate his past actions without hating the man?  I’ve also got a bit of a thing for anti-heroes!

How did you do research for your book?
I do most of my research online – one of these days my search history will get me arrested!  I do also have a collection of somewhat odd books that I reference for my writing – The Malleus Maleficarum, Vampire Forensics…you get the picture!

Do you have another profession besides writing?
I do!  I work as a corporate recruiter – it’s a fantastic job – I get to meet a lot of different people, help start the careers of new university grads, and watch company staff get promoted and achieve their goals!

If you could go back in time, where would you go?
I’d go back to the Victorian era – technological advancement was starting to change society.  I love the Victorian aesthetic, and there’s just something so dignified about the manners and traditions.  It would be an interesting trip, but I think I’d miss my modern creature comforts too much to stay!

What is your next project?
The second book in The Fallen Chronicles – Broken Angel – is being released in May, and I’m working on the finishing touches for the third installment – Forbidden Angel.
