That’s the way I thought of Sindriel when I started his story. I kept seeing his eyes, that eerie flash of garnet red that indicated his otherworldly nature. He challenged me to come into his world. Those eyes beckoned me forth.
Demons are dangerous and Sindriel being a demon-bargainer made him twice as savvy and his ways more than a little wicked. His behaviors hide a chivalrous side, though you may not see it right away.
I realized he needed a mortal woman with strengths he didn’t possess if he were to ever fall in love. I introduced Sindriel to several different heroines, but he only clicked with one: Miranda Contreras.
How then does a mortal woman deal with a demon?
Well, Miranda believes in good. She isn’t blind to Sindriel’s darkness, making excuses and such. No, it’s a matter of seeing beyond the façade that people present as themselves. Miranda sees more to Sindriel than he’s showing. Trust me, he isn’t always on his best behavior with her.
Still, Sindriel and Miranda find a complimentary balance of strengths and weaknesses between them. The battle between light and dark is a sensual dance, not intended for the faint of heart.
You might be wondering why if his eyes are so important, they aren’t featured on the cover. Simple. I wanted you, the reader, to experience his gaze as you read and not just see it in a picture. Hope you enjoyed the insight. Both had secondary roles in Love’s Demon Ways, if you’d like to check out that book as well.
Miranda Contreras never thought a bad choice in men could cause her to lose her soul. She must now call upon on a demon bargainer for help.
Demon bargainer and Lord of the Crimson Shroud, Sindriel, always bargains to his own benefit. What will he take from Miranda as payment for his assistance?
Miranda’s life soon becomes one of hell realms and dangerous pleasures. Will she regain her soul but lose her chance at true love?
Sindriel has wanted Miranda from the moment he saw her at the wedding. He reveals his true nature to her to insure her safety in his realm while he retrieves her soul, which seems the perfect opportunity to indulge in her charms. He’ll face off against demons to retrieve her soul, but will he choose to discard her rather than face the truth of his own heart?
A Siren Erotic Romance
Oh, the nights he’d dreamed of seeing this woman naked and desirous for him. Too bad these circumstances were not to his liking. What fresh hell brought her to him in this manner?
He left the deeper shadows of the backyard trees and stepped into the moonlight.
Miranda stared at him with wide, surprised eyes but then gave a loud cough that might have destroyed his goddess fantasy, as if her identity hadn’t done that already. That was the trouble with the summoning ritual. One never saw the face of the supplicant.
Her mouth hung open in amazement even as she tried to cover herself with her hands. “Sindriel,” she squeaked.
“Miranda,” he murmured.
His bit the inside of his lip to keep from smirking as she rushed to cover her nakedness and dove for a towel sitting on a nearby chair. He possessed excellent vision at night, but he wouldn’t share that with her. He never would have guessed she’d ever perform a summoning ritual for a demon.
“It worked,” she exclaimed, wrapping the towel tight around her. The material did nothing to disguise the plumpness of her breasts.
His dreams hadn’t done her justice, come to think of it now.
What was she doing summoning a demon—summoning him? Suddenly it irritated him to know that she’d discovered his secret. Last he’d seen of her, she’d been dabbling in demon hunting or some such thing if the scent in her house were any indication. Why would she take such a risk as to call on him?
He’d find out soon enough. “What is it that a mysterious wet goddess might want from a humble demon bargainer as me?”
Sarcasm colored his tone. Yes, Ren had warned him away from her, and now she stood before him, a supplicant. He could have had her all along in his way of thinking.
“I never suspected, you were…” She clutched the towel tighter around herself and said, “It’s not what you think.”
“If you knew my thoughts, you’d find more than a towel with which to clothe yourself.”
