A Demon Bound
Think your landlord is a demon from hell? This one really is.
Samantha Martin is an imp. She throws her gum on the floor of five star restaurants, bounces inflatable holiday decorations down the highway at rush hour, and clips jaywalking pedestrians with her car. Sam also likes to kill people and keep their souls inside her for all eternity, but acting on that particular urge will get her killed by the angels, who are determined to rid the world of her kind.
Sam works hard to keep her human identity realistic: she owns slum rental properties, and she is trying to get her hot neighbor into the sack. When she kills a werewolf in an act of self-defense, his pack leaders blackmail her into helping track and kill a rogue angel. The very actions she must take to appease the werewolves put her at risk of being discovered and killed by the angels.
Reader feedback on A DEMON BOUND:
“A DEMON BOUND zips along with humor, action and insight and is a clear look at the angel, demon, and werewolf in each of us.” Honest Indie Book Reviews (see the entire review HERE)
“The world building is unique and in depth (without being overly so). Pacing is excellent without any dull or slow moments. The humor is natural and never seems forced.” Mistress of the Dark Path (see the entire review HERE)
“… I gotta say this book was a total hoot! Sam, the main character, was absolutely true to herself as an amoral demon, yet surprisingly sympathetic, which was a neat trick on the author’s part. The plot rolled right along and the characters were a lively bunch.”
“I love this book, started laughing from the first page and am finding more reasons to laugh as I go on…”
“I was rooting for the charmingly raw protag Sam. So many interesting layers to this story filled with suspense, humor, and fantastical imagination.”
“An imp after my own heart. I totally fell in love with Sam. I recommend this book to everyone who likes a little chaos in their life.”
“Couldn’t put this one down. It was definitely a fun read that had me up all night to finish.”
Samantha Martin is an imp, bound by an angel who allows her to live among the humans . . . as long as she follows his rules. It’s not easy for an imp to follow the rules, especially when Sam’s brother, Dar, finds himself in hot water. He needs her help to retrieve an artifact from the vampires, or the powerful demon he owes a favor to will enslave and torture him for centuries.
It should be a simple courier job, but with demons nothing is simple. Sam reluctantly attempts to help her brother, trying not antagonize the vampires or the demon gunning for him, all while chafing to comply with the restrictions her angel has placed on her as a bound demon.
Demon young are cruel, especially to little imps like Az. No matter where she hides, even deep in the swamplands, her siblings eventually find her and hurt her, ripping off her scales and slicing her wings. Many demons don’t live to adulthood. Only the strong survive. And the clever.
Survival isn’t looking probable for Az, with eldest brother, Paquit, determined to rip her to shreds at every opportunity. When her other brother, Dar, proposes a trip through the angelic gates into the land of the humans, she jumps at the chance. Finally, a fun adventure safe from Paquit’s cruelty and attacks. Or maybe not.
Imp is a prequel novella to the Imp Series. It features the demon Samantha Martin as a juvenile, before she became Sam – a kind of young adult story for demons.

Sam may be the Iblis, but she is also an imp with a price on her head. The powerful demon, Haagenti, won’t rest until she’s dragged back to Hel for “punishment”. Sam knows she can’t face Haagenti and win, so when an Elf Lord offers to eliminate the demon in return for her help, Sam accepts. It’s a simple job – find and retrieve a half-breed monster dead or alive. But finding this demon/elf hybrid isn’t proving easy and time is running out.
Reader Feedback on ELVEN BLOOD:
“A great read and one I had a tough time putting down. Best yet in the series and one I’d highly recommend. This is a “must read” urban fantasy author who has an original concept that is totally fun with her demons, angels and all those other supernaturals paranormal readers love.”
