They’re everywhere, hiding in plain sight. Chances are, you’ve interacted with one or two of them in your lifetime without even realizing it...

Demon hunter Evelyn Brighton saves unsuspecting humans from the malevolent creatures masquerading around them every day. Working under the Lebriga Corporation’s direction, she never fails to bring her A-game with her keen skill, fiercely independent spirit, and the best weapon in her arsenal: the Divinity blade.

Evelyn’s world is turned on its ear, however, when she is ordered to train cocky new recruit Daniel Summers. They both feel an instinctive pull drawing them to one another, the ancient spells tattooed into their skin illuminating whenever the two hunters come into contact. But with evil looming over the city of Los Angeles, Evelyn and Daniel’s mutual competitiveness and sense of duty to Lebriga and all humankind forces them to hold back their desires. Will their restraint be enough to keep them focused and save southern California, or will the dark forces prevail?

Set in modern-day Los Angeles, Divinity is an action-filled, fast-paced marriage of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. Edgy, witty, and sexy, it will bind you in its spell.

Exclusive excerpt from Divinity’s upcoming sequel, Entity…

“What’s a Spectoral?” Daniel asked.

“A Spectoral demon is a nasty one, and quite wily, as Zachery pointed out,” Alex explained. “They have no physical body, therefore they must inhabit a host of sorts, preferably humans. When they enter into the physical body of a human, they bind themselves to the soul, taking over everything about that individual. Some possessions, if you will, happen at a very young age, unfortunately, but theoretically it could happen at any point in a human’s life. These demons liken themselves to Gods. They crave the power, followers to do their bidding. Some of the more notable Spectorals have caused quite a ruckus in the human world. Jim Jones, David Koresh, and, of course, Charles Manson. As you would imagine, Spectorals are notoriously cult leaders.

“Over the years, the main office has observed a presence. This entity has shown itself in several different venues, lingering just long enough for us to catch a trail before it vanishes, only to resurface in a year or so elsewhere.”

“Sounds like Anabael,” Z said, straightening in his chair. “She’s one cagey-ass bitch, and as far as I know, she’s the only one that moves like that.”

“Precisely,” Alex confirmed with a nod. “She favors the more subtle approach, heading up companies that lure in humans using one of their greatest weaknesses, money. You’ll find her behind some of the biggest consultant-driven organizations, raising them to near cult status before she moves on to a new venture. Her newest business enterprise is one you may have heard of, Beautiful Illuminations.”

That name sounded familiar. I seemed to recall a late-night junk TV session with Tess when we’d caught an infomercial starring a gaggle of girls explaining how they had all this extra money to buy clothes and crap because they’d started selling some junk. If I remembered correctly, the big draw was that you could get “Paid to Party,” which seemed to make all their little ditzy friends squeal. Yeah, that had to be it; I distinctly remember holding back the urge to barf.

“Is that the one that’s supposed to be empowering for young women?” I asked. “Something like ‘Made by women for women’ and ‘Be your own woman while you’re young’ and ‘Take what you want from life’ or some shit like that?”

“That is the very one. And I’m pleased to see you know so much about the company already, Evelyn.”

Oh piss, Alex had that look. The one with the serious face and pinchy eyebrows. Damn it, that was a bad look. A seriously bad look.

Patricia Leever is a wife, stay-at-home mom of four and owner of one dog and one really old cat. On the average school day she runs about town like a lunatic picking up and dropping off kids and trying to find a moment of quiet to write down a word or two.

She's a sci-fi geek that loves to dress up like a zombie and participate in the local zombie march down Main St. and laugh as much as possible; laughter frees the mind and heals the soul.

Live. Breathe. Write.
