Aloha to Karen Kelley and WHERE THERE'S SMOKE
On this date in 1893, the Supreme Courts ruled that a tomato is a vegetable under the Tariff Act of 1883 in Nix vs. Hedden. Botanically, a tomato is a fruit.
Sometimes things are not what they seem ... from Karen Kelley's WHERE THERE'S SMOKE:
When sexy wannabe-demon, Destiny Carter, is kicked out of Hell, she lands in Ft. Worth, Texas with one week to corrupt a soul. Or else. She slips into a slinky red dress, and heads straight for the delicious, corruptible looking cowboy at the bar.
But Chance Bellew has his own agenda-saving souls. He's not your typical angel. He’s a nephilim, to be exact. Centuries ago, angels came down from Heaven and mated with mortal women. When the women bore children, a new race was created. Immortals with powers—demigods, nephilim.
But the children don’t live by the same rules as mortals, or that of the typical, robe-wearing, bright light-surrounding-them angels. Hell, most of the time the nephilim are breaking the rules, and making up new ones as they go. As long as they don’t cross over to the dark side, everyone pretty much stays out of their way.
But sometimes a demon-in-training, who looks like Destiny, comes along and all Hell breaks loose. Kati R posted her review on ROMANCING RAKES FOR THE LOVE OF ROMANCE at this link. This is a smoking hot book!
