By: Gracen Miller


Where does the road to Hell begin?

Madison Wescott’s life has been a wasteland of trauma and abuse. Her first steps on the road to Hell were taken when her husband kissed her goodbye before heading to work and then disappeared. When unusual problems arise with her five year old son, Amos, a darker road to hell is paved…

With good intentions?

Looking back, maybe falling in love with the wrong man was her first step on the road to Hell? He’d been her knight, coming to her rescue when she needed saving the most. She’d loved him and worshipped him, placing him on a pedestal above everyone. Maybe his intentions hadn’t been so good…

Or demonic design?

Before she could accept or deny her destiny, sinister forces were already designing her future. A fate calculated by those she should’ve been able to trust…

In a small, sleepy Alabama town the battle for mankind's liberty has begun...

What would you do if your son went homicidal overnight and you learn a demon has designs on your future? It wouldn’t help that your expertise isn’t in supernatural warfare or that you don’t even believe in God for that matter?

Madison Wescott from my newly released e-book, Pandora’s Box, is stunned and skeptical to learn demons have targeted her and her son. Growing up a Baptist preacher’s daughter, she knows all the ins and outs of Biblical scripture, she just stopped believing it all, discounted them as fairytales to keep people scared into righteousness. With a huge supernatural problem affecting her five year old son, she has to rethink her beliefs. With the aid of Nix Birmingham and his family, what she discovers is worse than her nightmares and any horror movie ever made.

She knows the road to Hell won’t be easy and she won’t go down without a fight. And if she has to embrace her destiny to save those she loves, that’s a sacrifice she’s willing to make.

Pandora’s Box…once you open it, there’s no going back.







Pandora’s Box Blurb:

Where does the road to Hell begin?

What happens when your son turns homicidal overnight and your husband disappears on his way to work? Do you cower in fear or fight for your life? Madison Wescott fights against the odds. Distrustful of a God she doesn't believe in, she finds herself face-to-face with a world she didn't know existed and discovers her own soul is darkened with demonic connections.

With good intentions? Or by demonic design?

Phoenix Birmingham bursts into Madison’s life in a whirlwind of sarcasm and sexual appeal. A hero for the masses—and for her jaded heart—but few will ever know the sacrifices he has made or the sacrifices to come. Discovering her entire life has been influenced by multifaceted paranormal beings, Madison is determined to defeat the apocalyptic blueprint fate has decreed, but only one man dares to challenge the supernatural forces manipulating them. Even with Phoenix's aid, can destiny be denied? Or will demonic design prevail while they pay the crucial price with their souls?

In a small, sleepy Alabama town the battle for mankind's liberty has begun...


Pandora’s Box Excerpt:

“May I?” He held up the medical supplies.

She nodded and watched as he doused gauze with antiseptic. “Dr. Nix at your service,” he said with a grin, two adorable dimples charming her where words failed.

Madison rolled her eyes, and tipped her head to the side to give him better access. He brushed her hair off her neck, back behind her shoulder. Such a simple gesture, yet it felt terribly personal. The air grew thick and sticky with her awareness of him. She shifted in her seat and crossed her legs.

Madison stared into his eyes. Green, she thought, his eyes were green, gorgeous and intense, with ridiculously long eyelashes women would fantasize about. If they didn’t, they should. A flicker of compassion, concern, and something else she couldn’t identify flashed in his eyes.

“Ready?” he asked.

The husky tenor of his voice forced her gaze to shift to his mouth. Nice, sexy lips, designed for kissing. She gave a mental shake but couldn’t resist wondering how his mouth would feel on hers.

“Madison?” Humor deepened his voice, a touch of a smile tilted the edges of the lips she’d been fantasizing about, and she realized she still stared at them. “You ready?” he asked again, and her eyes widened in embarrassment over her foolish stupor.

She swallowed hard. “Yeah.” She whispered past the lump in her throat and forced her vision to lock on the wall over his shoulder. Good God, what was wrong with her? Her pulse throbbed like crazy, and she felt woozy. Loss of blood! Must be why she reacted that way. No other explanation made sense.

Even though the antiseptic stung like hell, the gentle touch coming from such a gruff man surprised her. “It’s not bad,” he said, dabbing the blood away. “Just a nick.”

Well, she could nix the blood loss theory. Exhaustion and stress were the only other excuses she could come up with. “I’ve suffered worse.” Her voice sounded off, kind of hoarse. She tried to clear her throat delicately, but he must have noticed her unease, because his perceptive eyes met hers. Again, she thought she caught the edge of concern reflected in their green depths.

“This isn’t the first time he’s attacked you?”

“No. It’s the first time he’s tried to seriously kill me, though.” She sighed as she closed her eyes, ready to give up fighting, the sudden tears threatening to fall. Okay, woozy and acting strange because of strain…not because of him. Seriously, as far as first impressions went, she wasn’t impressed.

Folks, please note that I am NOT giving a copy of Pandora's Box away. Two of my back titles is up for grabs, but the post specifically states at the beginning that Fairy Casanova and Elfin Blood are the books being given away. These are paranormal erotic romances and nothing similar to Pandora's Box, do please be aware of the differences!!!!!

Huggles,
Gracen
