First Kill Blog Tour!
Andrew enjoys the company of women, perhaps too much. The council in heaven had enough of his sexual promiscuity and sentenced him to return to Earth to destroy demons. To make matters more difficult, if he has sex with a woman he has to stay an extra year. Without clothes, money, or food, his task seems impossible.
Emily is in a world of trouble. She leaves her family, job, and home in Chicago to start a new life. As she's driving along a country road, she discovers a naked man lying in the middle of it. He's incredibly built, sculpted to perfection, and blessed with a fine package south of his navel. When he asks for her help, she can't resist.
Over the next several days, Emily's sanity is tested. Andrew struggles to keep his hands to himself. Emily seeks the truth from Andrew while he endeavors to kill a demon. What she discovers frightens her—angels, demons, heaven and hell exist. Determined to help Emily change her future, Andrew offers her a deal. But is heaven the best eternal resting place?
AN EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT
He lifted the visor before he turned to his new lady friend. “Thank you for the ride.”
“What’s your name?” she asked.
She glimpsed at him. “Andy what?”
“It’s Andrew, not Andy,” he said, a bit testy.
“Oh, sorry. What’s your last name?”
“Just call me Andrew.”
She pressed her lips together and frowned. He sensed her discontent, but he didn’t see a point in sharing his full name.
“What’s your name?” he asked.
He noticed she avoided gazing at him. Did his nakedness bother her? He wondered if she was bashful. Surely, she didn’t think he had an unappealing body. But he couldn’t be certain. Maybe if he had something to hide his erection she would be more willing to look at him.
“You wouldn’t happen to have any extra clothes, would you? Preferably for a man.” He looked behind her seat and spotted a cover and a bag containing bottles of water.
“No, but there’s a blanket in the back you can use for now.”
He twisted and reached between the seats. His arm brushed against hers and she inched away from him. After he pulled the blanket to the front, he placed it over his lap.
The dark road had a lot of hills and curves. He hadn’t seen a single vehicle in either direction. Since they hadn’t passed many houses, he guessed they were far from a city. But where? And what year was it? Did Earth look the same since he’d left it in 1989? He wished the sun were shining so could he see more.
She peeked at him from the corner of her eyes. “This is just too weird.”
She took her eyes off the road briefly. “You.”
“So you don’t stumble across naked men in the road very often?”
She grinned and he thought it went well with her face. He would encourage her to smile more often.
“No, you’re the first,” she said. “How did you end up without any clothes in the middle of some country road?”
“If I told you, you wouldn’t believe me.”
The temptation to feed her some story played in his mind. If he told her the truth, she might pull over and force him to get out. He needed help and right now, she was his only chance at getting it.
“Try me,” she said.
“Could you first tell me what year it is?”
Her brows scrunched. “2016.”
“Oh.” He nodded. “Good.”
He inhaled a relieving breath. Since he’d only been gone twenty-seven years, he suspected he could fit back into society with ease.
