Fire and Ice - Hot Angels and Cool Demons

Hi everyone, I'm part of the Hot Angels and Cool Demons blog hop. I hope you enjoy my story of how I came up with my story, Fire and Ice.

I love Angel and Demon mythology. One of my first memories of the “dark side” was the 1976 movie The Omen. Damien was such an evil child but the movie was so good that I never lost my love for the horror genre or for angel and demon stories. Then there was Amityville Horror and the evil little house, so good and yet so bad. As I grew I learned to love the good thrown in with the bad.

When I began thinking about a demon and angel story I started researching the mythology. There were so many different ways this story could have gone. Angels and demons have galvanized humanity since the beginning of time. I wanted something different for Fire and Ice. I thought what would happen if the good, pure angel was forced to live in a demon’s body? Thus the story of Fire and Ice was born.

Alexandria lives in Montana near Sperry Glacier and her life was turned upside down when Rafael saves her life after having an allergic reaction to a bee sting. God is pissed so he forces Rafael to switch bodies with Lahash, a demon who interferes with the will of God. Thus Lash and Rafe were born. Lash is actually Rafael disguised as a demon and Rafe, though gorgeous, is a demon with an ugly soul. Whoever helps Alexandria forgive her brother and stop being bitter will win the right to whichever body they choose and both Lash and Rafe want Rafael’s body and power.

Alexandria is attracted to Rafe with his handsome face and beautiful body but Lash’s soul draws her in. Who will she choose and who will win God’s favor?

Look for Fire and Ice from Total-E-Bound in the spring of 2012.

In the meantime I hope you enjoy some of my other stories from TEB

Zane's Inferno due out in the His Hero anthology on January 16th 2012.
After being trapped in a fire, Zane Wilson is shocked by the heat directed his way by Nick Dubois. The fire department's top paramedic. Nick comes on to Zane, kissing him in the bunkroom and surprising the hell out of him. The next day, Nick shows up at Zane's house and the fireworks really begin. The sex is rough and hot, not at all like anything Zane has had before

Their relationship began because of a fire then almost ends because of one. When Zane is trapped in a forest fire and almost killed, Nick moves in and doesn't leave his side. But a jealous ex is setting up Nick...And gunning for Zane. Will they survive the firestorm created by their relationship, or succumb to the flames?

Out in print and ebook. 
Passion and lust brings them together, what they don't expect is to fall in love.

Jake Grant is a sexy personal trainer not looking for anyone after his long-time partner passes away. He's ready to throw away his dreams by selling the gym just to get away from the ghost of his past. But once he meets Lance everything changes.

Lance Abbott is an orthopaedic surgeon who specialising in sports medicine and is completely in the closet. He is convinced that if his clients found out he was gay they would all leave his practice and he would have to abandon the work he loves. When he meets Jake, a man who is totally out, all of Lance’s perceptions about being “out” are challenged.

Passions and lust drive Lance and Jake together. But they soon find out their relationship is deeper than the physical heat between them. Can what they have last without anyone finding out? Or should Lance give up his insecurities and embrace Jake fully?

Available in ebook.

Snowed in turns super hot when James and Nick spend the night downtown.

Nick has spent the last year dreaming of James, but he's been too afraid to act on his desires. Then the ice and snow blew in, trapping him downtown. But he's not the only one prowling around the office. James is pleased to find Nick still at work and opens his house to Nick, offering him a place to sleep.

Nick is shocked when James grabs his hand to lead him across the icy street and more shocked when the man starts undressing him. The night may be cold outside, but the heat is rising in James' apartment.

What super covers, Sara!!! The stories sound great too. Yep, there is something so intriquing about angels and demons. I think they're the type of paranormals that we'll always write about!!

Sara, I agree your covers are beautiful - and your stories sound great! I can't wait to read Fire and Ice when it comes out, but also the other books are going on my TBR list!

Beautiful covers, and your angels/demon story sounds fantastic!

Arlene said...

Fire and Ice, a perfect title and what a cool twist, an angel forced into a demonic body and the demon into his. Then pair them off for the same woman. Brillant and another I'm looking forward to reading asap.

An angel in a demons body? He has my sympathy already! I can see heartache in store for him. Sounds like an amazing story. I'll have to squeeze it into my TBR list. :)

I hope I've but my angel in the demon's body through enough torture to satisfy everyone. He'll certainly never forget the punishment.

Angel forced to live in a demon’s body? That's a great story idea. The blurb sounds great as well. Loads of dilemma it seems.
