Death, And the Girl He Loves Blog Tour

Today on my blog I have the Death, and the Girl he Loves. On my stop there is a spotlight, excerpt, and giveaway.

NYTimes and USA Today Bestselling Author Darynda Jones has won numerous awards for her work, including a prestigious Golden Heart®, a Rebecca, two Hold Medallions, a RITA ®, and a Daphne du Maurier, and she has received stellar reviews from dozens of publications including starred reviews from Publisher’s Weekly, Booklist, and the Library Journal. As a born storyteller, Darynda grew up spinning tales of dashing damsels and heroes in distress for any unfortunate soul who happened by, annoying man and beast alike, and she is ever so grateful for the opportunity to carry on that tradition. She currently has two series with St. Martin’s Press: The Charley Davidson Series and the Darklight Trilogy. She lives in the Land of Enchantment, also known as New Mexico, with her husband of almost 30 years and two beautiful sons, the Mighty, Mighty Jones Boys. She can be found at www.daryndajones.com.

The fate of the world is not something a girl wants on her shoulders, and that is especially true for Lorelei McAlister.  Unfortunately for her, that is exactly where the world’s fate has decided to take up residence. Lorelei has seen firsthand the horrors that lie beneath our everyday world. And those horrors are getting her friends killed. Because of this, she agrees to leave the sanctity of her hometown and is sent to a different world entirely. A boarding school. But even here she is being watched. Someone knows what she is. What she carries inside her soul.  And on top of that she’s seeing visions.  This is nothing new for Lorelei.  But these visions are something more: death, destruction, and the end of the world.   Lorelei must face the fact that there are people who want her dead, and no matter where she goes, no matter how far she runs, the lives of her friends and family are in mortal peril.  Lucky for her, her friends and family include the handsome Angel of Death, a fiercely protective half-angel, and a ragtag group of loyal supporters who aren’t afraid to get a little dirty in the name of fighting pure evil. 

He was as tall as Cameron,
only dark. Stunningly sensual like a Brazilian supermodel.
But he looked exhausted as well. His hair needed a
trim, and his jaw— sculpted and strong— needed a shave.
He stood in his requisite white T-shirt and jeans with his
arms crossed over his chest and a grin lifting one corner of
his incredible mouth. His coffee- colored eyes shimmered as
he looked at me. “He’ll come around if he knows what’s good
for him,” he said.

“Yeah?” I asked, stepping toward him. I didn’t want
to get too gooey in front of my grandparents, but this was
Jared Kovach. The love of my life. And the Angel of Death,
but still.

“You going to offer me one of those?” he asked.

“What? A hug?”

He reached out and ran the backs of his fingers over my
hand. His touch was like electricity. It sent a jolt of plea sure
rocketing through me, weakened my knees, accelerated my
heart. Without any further ado, I jumped into his arms. He
caught me like I knew he would— because he was super
strong and could do things like that— and held me tight.
