A look at "Redemption" by the awesome Erica Hayes.

I love Erica Hayes. I’d like to say that my love for Erica, or ‘my cute little baby bunny rabbit from hell’ as I like to refer to her, is a pure and lovely thing. But it’s not. It’s smutty and shameless. And it’s ALL about her books. Because her books are gritty, action packed affairs just littered with hot men and steamy romance. They’re also beautifully written, but you know, HOT MEN. It really doesn’t get much more important than that, let's not fool ourselves. Now Erica (or MCLBBRFH) has a new book out called “Redemption” and she’s here to tell us all about it. Please make her welcome…

Crazy Angel Warrior in tight leather pants. You know you need it.
Thanks to Kylie for hosting me today! I'm stoked to be here.

What have I got to say, you ask? Well, I'm visiting Kylie's blog because… uh. Well. My last book featured zombies?!? … Hmm. A tenuous connection at best. Because I, too, write hot sex scenes in less-than-sanitary settings?!? That could be it.

Truth is, I was hanging out on Twitter sounding lonesome, so Kylie invited me over to her blog for chips and beer. And I never left. Erica, the house guest from hell. Whaddaya mean, we're out of peanuts? Move over, will you?

Anyhoo. I thought that if you like Kylie's books, you might enjoy mine, too. We both have that end-of-the-world vibe going, with monsters vs. survivors and worldwide carnage. We both have romance against the odds, adversaries to lovers, the old rules of society discarded in favour of new, and strange behaviour all round.

But compared to what you find in Skin and Flesh, the Apocalypse in my Seven Signs series is a little more flashy and Las Vegas. Costume-fetish demons, a plague of hideous vampires, angels with flaming swords, blood in the water and the sky raining fire.

The end of the world, brought to you by David Copperfield. With a lash of Liberace. And smut. There's quite a bit of feathery angel smut. I promise: the smut, it will happen. No, I'm not giving you page numbers. Wait your turn.

Anyhoo, thanks to Kylie for helping me pimp this gorgeous book. Look at him: craziest angel warrior ever. And are they the hottest golden wings, or what?

Japheth the Tainted is on the hunt for a mysterious demon vampire. But meeting her face-to-face might disarm his warrior spirit—and spark an unquenchable passion with apocalyptic consequences. 
As a fallen angel, Japheth is determined to make his way back to heaven by staying pure and slaying hellspawn. With a new scourge of vampires unleashed by a blood-drinking demon, the Prince of Thirst, there’s plenty to be done. But Japheth is after one vampire in particular—the one they call the Angel Slayer. 
Rose Harley never wanted to be a vampire, but the Prince of Thirst can turn even the kindest soul into a soldier of hell. Feeling abandoned by God, she stalks the West Village taking revenge on his angels—until she meets her match. 
When Japheth and Rose encounter each other, the battle is fierce and charged with desire. But when they discover a common enemy—the Prince of Thirst himself—they form a dangerous alliance that could either cost them their eternal lives, or spark a love more powerful than heaven or hell.

Cool, eh? You can read the first couple of chapters for free (yay!) at my website

And you can buy it at Amazon. Or in Australia from Booktopia. Or, of course, your local romance bookstore!

  1. It's all your fault Kylie that I'm a sucker for an apocalyptic flick with hot heroes and dirty sex. Redemption looks like its going to find its way onto my extensiveTBR list too. Congrats Erica Hayes!
