Samantha Martin is an imp, enjoying an extended vacation from Hel. All she wants to do is drink beer by the pool, play mischievous pranks on the humans, and get her hot neighbor in the sack.  It’s a relaxing break from her infernal home, as long as she manages to avoid the angels, who won’t hesitate to execute her on sight.

But when her naughty hellhound lands her in trouble with the local werewolf pack, Sam is blackmailed into helping track and catch a killer.  The steps she must take to appease the werewolves will put her right in the crosshairs of the angels.  And with angels, there is no second chance.

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.”

Also available in AUDIO at Amazon, iTunes, and Audible

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.

IMP

(prequel novella to The Imp Series) Available at Amazon, Smashwords, B&N, Kobo, Apple and All Romance e-Books

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.

Elven Blood CoverElven Blood

Imp Series book 3 – Now available at Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, Kobo, Apple, and All Romance e-Books

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.”

Devil's Paw -book 4 Web SmallDevil’s Paw

Imp Series, Book 4 – Available at Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, Kobo, Apple, and All Romance e-Books

For once no one wants to kill Samantha Martin.  She’s free to do all the things a mischievous imp loves to do- like remove all the county speed limit signs, and wrap City Hall in crime scene tape.  Her only worry beyond organizing the delivery of her boyfriend’s birthday present, is writing those pesky four nine five reports for the Ruling Council of Angels.  But imps can never stay out of trouble for long.

Demon corpses have been found drained of all energy, their spirit selves ripped clean from their bodies.  Sam’s angel, Gregory, considers her a prime suspect, so when an angel is discovered dead in the same manner, he drags her to Seattle and Juneau to try to clear her name.  The race is on to find the murderer before Sam’s secret is exposed and she’s blamed for the deaths.  But is a devouring spirit really the killer, or is there more to the deaths than either Sam or Gregory suspect?

Imp Forsaken

Imp Series, Book 5 – Available at Amazon, Apple, Smashwords, B&N

Imp Forsaken Cover Web Version

Sam is banished to Hel, the bond with her angel, Gregory, broken.  Six Elven kingdoms are battling for supremacy, and she’s broken and injured in the middle of the most hostile one.  Shooting the top off a royal throne, committing fraud in the completion of a contract, and threatening a high lord hasn’t endeared her to the elves, either.  If she wants to free the enslaved humans they hold, she’ll need to find a way to help unite their kingdoms.

But elves aren’t the only problem facing Sam.  The ancient demon, Ahriman is holding her to the terms and conditions of the breeding contract she signed – and one thousand years under his claw is looking to be the most terrifying thing in all of Hel.

Angel of Chaos (Imp Book 6)

Available for pre-order on Amazon

Angel of Chaos cover smallSamantha Martin didn’t want the title of Iblis and all the hellish responsibility that comes with it.  She sure as heck didn’t want these feathery angel wings permanently affixed to her back– although those have their perks.  She especially doesn’t want all the extra projects the Ruling Council keeps dumping on her plate.

Tricked into protecting a pregnant woman, Sam discovers that her hasty vow came with a whole lot of strings attached – strings that make her question her trust in Gregory.  In order to keep her promises, she’ll need to rely on old friends as well as a house full of unlikely allies.

As if that weren’t enough chaos for an imp, the angels finally find proof that werewolves are Nephilim – the descendants of fallen angels. An entire race is facing extinction and their only hope for salvation is an angel from Hel.

Kelly’s family has beaten her nearly to death, yanked her fangs and discarded her in West Virginia – a buffer zone between two contentious vampire families.  It’s impossible for a vampire to survive in exile, especially without fangs.  Desperate, Kelly will do anything to convince her family to take her back.

Jaq’s werewolf pack calls West Virginia their territory.  They keep it that way by killing every vampire that crosses the border from either side.  When she finds a vampire abandoned and dying, she throws caution to the winds and nurses her back to health.  Now Jaq is in the difficult position of keeping Kelly safe from her own pack until the vampire is allowed back into her family.

But the vampire factions are on the warpath, and the werewolf territories are smack in the middle.  Both Jaq and Kelly must make allies of old enemies to protect what’s theirs and to carve out a family that’s more than blood.

Nyalla is dog-sitting for Satan. It’s a sweet gig for a girl who, up until recently, had been a slave to the elves in Hel. The house is amazing, she’s got the key to the Corvette, and although Boomer is a Hellhound, he’s also a lovable, slobbery companion.

When a newly interred corpse vanishes, followed by a series of grisly murders, Nyalla can’t help but wonder if Boomer’s odd diet has taken a deadly turn. Could the dog be to blame or is there a more sinister creature on the loose? Nyalla must stop who is behind it all before more die – and before the county puts Boomer on death row.

Amber’s succubus desires are driving her, as well as every man within a five mile radius, crazy – and, Irix, the sexy incubus sent to tutor her, isn’t helping one bit. Determined to find some balance in her life as well as get away from his tempting presence, she escapes to visit a college friend in New Orleans.

But the Big Easy is anything but peaceful. Two powerful witch covens are battling for control of the mighty river and the potent ley lines that run through the city. Amber discovers her half-elven heritage may just resolve their differences, but the covens have other, more lethal, ideas. She knows she can restore the elemental energy to balance, but it’s not easy to play peacemaker when her succubus side wants to drown the whole city in a tide of lust.

The tensions between the covens aren’t her only trouble. There’s nowhere Amber can run to escape the siren-call of her demon nature, and no where she can run to escape the seductive incubus who won’t seem to take “no” for an answer.

  1. Will there be a sixth book?

    I finished reading the Imp series a couple of months ago and have been axiously waiting to see if there will be more. Keeping my fingers crossed.

  2. I purchased A Demon Bound and Satan’s Sword, from Audible.com. I loved them can’t wait for the next one to be available at Audible.com. Do you know when the other books will be available at Audible?
    I love Sam’s character. Your writing is outstanding! I LOL while listening and driving in my car. People must think I am nuts LOL. You should have been a comedian. Again, Great books. Push please for more to be available at Audible.

    • I’m so glad you are enjoying the audio editions! My narrator is working on the third book right now, and we’re hoping to get through book five by the end of the year.

      • I’ve just finished the first 2 books in audio, and i’m dying for the third. Do you have any idea at all how long the wait for book 3 will be? I prefer audio but if it’s going to be awhile I will probably go ahead with the ebook. I had previously thought that i’d read all the awesome series in this genre and was getting quite bored, thanks for getting me excited about a new (to me series) I LOVE it. Sam is such a character! I especially love the things she offers to do for Wyatt to show her love for him, I was seriously LMAO during the part about his opponent in the video game world. I seriously hope you give us tons of books in this series, Sam is a character that i’ll seriously miss if she doesn’t get tons of books. Sorry for the rant! I just love this world you’ve created!

        • Thanks, Michelle! My narrator is working on Elven Blood now. I’ll check in with her and see what the ETA is on that one. Once she’s done, she’ll move right on to the next book.

  3. Like other, I have also just inhaled your imp series, in a short couple of days. Thank you for such an enjoyable ride. Am now waiting to see what happens next to Sam, her angel, her humans, her demons, and her friends.
    Love the way you made the final confirmation/hint of who her angel actually is (I was going to use his name here but realised that it would be a spoiler for those who haven’t got that far…..)
    Thank you

  4. Hi Debra Dunbar,

    Just want to say love your Imp series books. Looks forward to Book 6. Blew through all the books in 3 days. I do not know how I stumbled onto and bought your books on amazon but one of my better purchases in some time. Well written and extremely unbelievably interesting and captivating.

    While awaiting for more imp world and Book 6, would like to ask … Do you have any recommendations of other authors and series that you would recommend, as I await as you churn out more books :).

    Going on the premise that you must have great taste if your books are in such great taste :P.

    • Joel – If you click on the book reviews tag, it will sort on the reviews I’ve done here. I’ll admit, my tastes are varied, so there’s a lot of romance and erotica mixed in with the fantasy!

      Thanks for reading!

    • *chuckle* looks like I’ m not the only one reading the whole series in one go at a crazy pace! :D grin
      yes three days sounds about right lol
      a wonderful series thank you for sharing it with us book-junkies ms. dunbar/debra
      i hope you will write many more of these fantastic books :)
      (eagerly anticipating the next novel about sam)

    • Thank you for reading! I’m so glad to hear you’re enjoying the series.
      No Man’s Land is off to edit on January 17th. I was hoping to release January 31st, but depending on edits, that date may shift into the first week of February. I’ll post here and on my Facebook page the moment it’s up and available!

  5. I took a chance with Imp on the 14th of November. By the 18th I’d read all of the Imp series. Every book had a number of laugh out loud moments, but some come to mind more than others – Angry Birds, Leethu seeing Michael for the first time, and when Sam prays to any deity for the half blood to appear at her door and the door bell rings – lol.

    In the 5th book I particularly liked how you introduced/developed a new character by pushing some of the existing characters into the background in such a way that it didn’t feel as if you were abandoning them.

    I have to say I didn’t like Ahriman and his actions – however they are important to help the reader understand that his behavior is ‘normal’ for a demon in Hel.

    I’m a sucker for a happy ending so I’m glad I found these after the 5th book was published. I see that you mention a few new story arcs focusing on some of the other characters and I hope that you do one on Amber, maybe when she meets Leethu for the first time.

    • Thanks Darryl! And yes, I am planning a book with Amber in it, and another one with Leethu as the main character. Those books, of course, will be a bit more spicy then others in the series, LOL.

        • I do have a book planned for Leethu in the future. I’d never leave her lonely, especially since she has begged Sam to find her an angel of her own.
          LOL on Gabe. Goodness, all the suggestions I get via e-mail etc. for how to corrupt that poor boy! He’d stroke out if he knew what ya’all had planned for him.

          • Well, what can I say. I’malmost positive Meigan’s part demon. She lives in thearea whereDar and Leethu’s been sowing wild oats, after all;-) And thethought makes us happy happy HAPPY;-) We’re living vicarously through your characters. LOL!

  6. Loved Imp Bound the last 3 chapters were really well done. Personally I’d much rather another Imp book to finish the series and then have spin offs follow that then spin offs first. I suspect I am not alone. I’ll probably buy the spinoffs but I’m not looking forward to them in the same way I would another Imp book.

  7. Loved all the imp series soooo much! I think it only took me 3 days to read them all they were so good! Please please tell me there will be a book 6?!

  8. Wonderful writing, great characters, i have been laughing out loud, the plot is incredible, thank you for the wonderful series, I hope “Angel of Death” will find her Angel again,
    please let them be together.
    can’t wait until book 5, will there be more books in the series?
    Best wishes

    • Thanks so much for commenting, everyone!
      Angela – Book 5 will be followed by a group of spin-offs (No Man’s Land – about the vampires and werewolves, Stolen Souls – with Boomer, and another book featuring Dar), then Book 6 (the last of Sam’s stories) in summer 2014. Afterwards I plan to put out another series of spin-off books featuring the other characters.

      Hope everyone enjoys Imp Forsaken when it’s out on November 1st!

  9. I am so happy I stumbled upon this series. I blew through the first four books in record time. I am so anxious to read about Ahriman I don’t think I can possibly wait until the next book comes out. Good job and good luck with any future writing!

    • Thanks for reading, Lauren! And keep checking my website – I’ll be posting excerpts of Imp Forsaken each Friday until release day to hopefully get you through the wait.

  10. Love love love it!!! Just finished book one and went and bought the other three! Great characters, can’t wait to see how it all unfolds! Totally hooked, thanks!

    • Thanks for reading! I’m going through beta reader feedback right now, then Imp Forsaken (Book 5) will be off to my editor. If she doesn’t have any significant changes, I might be able to release a bit early.

  11. Just finished #4. Wonderful, wonderful characters and devious plotting. I haven’t laughed out loud while reading books in years–I swallowed all of them practically whole. *burp* I am so looking forward to #5! Is it done yet? Is it done yet? Now? How about now? Yes, Sam is a demon after my own heart. THANK YOU for these books.

    • Thank you for reading – I’m so glad you’re enjoying them! Book 5, Imp Forsaken, is due to release November 1st, but if the stars align, I may be able to swing something earlier. First draft is done, and I’m currently in the painful revision process.

      I’ll be putting up a blog post this week that talks a bit about the book, and I should have a cover reveal up the first week in September, so stay tuned!

  12. Looking forward to the 4th book. When do we get to see the cover? I would love to put that book on my to read list on goodreads ASAP:-)

    • The artwork is done and book 4 and book 5 covers are with the typographer. I should have (fingers crossed) the book four cover next week, and the cover for book 5 soon after. I promise I’ll get a placeholder up on Goodreads as soon as I get it back! Thanks for reading.

  13. I just finished, A Demon Bound and Satan’s Sword, loved them can’t wait for the next one. I never laugh so much I love Sam’s character, and I want my own demon horse, even though my husband says I already have one or two.

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed them! Diablo is in book 3, and may even make an appearance on the cover. I’m about halfway through the draft of the next book – which means it will probably be released in late March/early April, once it makes its way through the editorial process and revisions.

      Horses are like potato chips – you can never have just one. Or two. Or five. Unfortunately they’re not as easy to hide from spouses as shoe or purse purchases!
