Novice Guardian Jake Hawkins has a power that could help Alice Grey out of her deal with a demon. But in helping her, he never expects to fall in love. Now fleeing for their lives, they’re about to discover a secret that will change their universe forever.
Meljean Brook lives in Oregon with her family. She is the author of the Guardian series and the Iron Seas steampunk romance series.
My characters constantly surprise me. I’ve come to points in my stories when the way forward seems impossible, when I wonder, “what in the world was I thinking?”and then my hero or heroine shows me the way through. I had many of those moments with my hero in Demon Bound, Jake Hawkins. He’s an immortal warrior, but a young one (if sixty years old can be considered “young”), and so there were many times when I asked myself, “what in the world was I thinking?” But, dear readerJake surprised me. His carefree attitude conceals a soldier’s strength, a deep commitment to the Guardian corps, and a heart that is fiercely loyal…to that one special woman.
Alice Grey is known among the Guardians as the Black Widow, and she faces a terrible choice: if she doesn’t kill the leader of the Guardians, she will be damned for all eternity. Fearing that she will be forced to betray everything that she holds dear, she has erected emotional and physical barriers…but she didn’t anticipate Jake, and how much she would come to rely upon his unique Gift.
She is an outcast, and he is trying to find his place among the Guardiansand their search for a way out of Alice’s terrible dilemma takes them on an unexpected journey. What they discover might free Alice…but it might also destroy everything that the Guardians have fought for against the demons of Hell. Only together will Jake and Alice overcome the dangers that the demons representand Jake has one final surprise in store for everyone.
What was I thinking? Dear reader, I was thinking that we all want incredible adventure, unforgettable characters, and a romance that will warm our hearts and curl our toes. I hope that you will join me, find that with Alice and Jake in Demon Bound.
