What will Alice have to sacrifice and for whom?


The breeze caressed Alice’s face from the open window as they flew through the winding roads that led them back to their home. She felt Cole’s hand clutch hers, loosening only to brush his fingers gently along her arm. They had won this unfathomable fight against God’s Angels for now, but for how long, only time would tell. She felt him lift her hand to his mouth, giving it a tender kiss before returning it to her lap.

            “How is your back?” Cole asked.

            “Sore. I knew it would be painful, but this is more than I could ever have imagined.” She flinched slightly from the memory of her new-found wings collapsing into her back. “I’m sure it’s worse than child birth.”

            He chuckled, “Well, that is something I will never be able to know.” His laugh faded as they made eye contact.

Alice twisted uncomfortably, having never really considered having children herself. She sat torturing herself, conflicted between comparing whether she even wanted to have kids and how much worse she’d feel if he did.

“I think that is something we can talk about down the road. We’ve had quite a night,” he said.

He was right.  The last few months had changed her life in every way possible. She now knew what real love was every time she looked into his beautiful amber eyes as they reached deep into her soul. She had finally known the truth of why such bizarre things had happened to her in her life when she met her biological Fallen Angel father, Penemue, or Paul, as she liked to call him. It was then she was brought face to face with her destiny. The topic of children was not something she was even remotely up for talking about, though a part of her couldn’t help imagining what their children would be like. She leaned over to rest her head on Cole’s shoulder. As she did, he lifted his arm, holding her tightly to his chest. We really did make it, she thought. He kissed the top of her head, Yes we did, he said. She would never tire of hearing his voice in her head or knowing he could hear her voice in his.

            After arriving home she looked back at the flood of cars that trailed behind them, letting a smile crawl up her face. Everyone was camped outside around a victorious campfire except Cole and Alice, who had excused themselves and ventured back to their home to shower and relax. The overwhelming emotions that had run through her were gone and all that was left was adrenaline and passion. Cole barely shut the door behind them when she jumped into his arms and pressed her lips to his, slamming his back into the door. He wrapped his arms tighter around her, returning her kiss with the same raw passion. She needed this, and she knew he did too.

Welcome Andrea and thanks for hanging out with S.E.X. today!!

….. I’ve lived in Michigan my entire life, a strong reason on why Alice Clark Series takes place there. I love big and my family and friends mean everything to me. I’ve been writing since I was a kid and when I took a break from the performing arts world it was natural for me to start writing with more structure. I tend to act like I’m tough but I’m a big softy at heart.

Who is your favorite character from your books? Kokabiel, he has this cool and collected attitude laced with sarcasm. I love writing him.

Who was the most difficult character to write? Jake, everyone hated Jake in the first book and this book I wanted readers to see a different side of him and even like him.

Are you a morning person, raring to go or do you lounge around and write later in the day? I’m am forced to be awake in the morning by my toddler and do sometimes write but I prefer to right at night.

What inspires you? Creative and passionate people. Being near people who love to create and share their gifts with the world drive me to do the same thing.
