Some backstory for Criminal Seduction. Content warning: Dark and sexually explicit.
I am about one third of the way into my rewrites for book 3 of my His Redemption series, To Rise Above. This will be the final book in the series, and, to be honest, I am ready to complete this narrative. I love the story, it’s a based around a plot I’ve been trying to write for over ten years, and seeing it come alive on the page has been incredible. That said, I am completely ready to move on to the next story. While I do have a sequel series to His Redemption, it will be after at least two other series complete, as well as possibly a couple other standalone stories.
In any case, I still need to finish this one first. But, to build some hype, let me drop a teaser in the form of the prologue. Before the Fall gives us a look into Matthias before he sold his soul to Baath-Me’el, and his relationship to Rielle.
Because apparently I can’t help myself from starting new projects.
Each clue leads her closer to a killer who wants to be caught.
Homicide detective Claudia Ross has a knack for solving murders. Her secret? The ability to read into the emotional memories imprinted upon objects, and relieve the victim’s final moments. However, when she’s tasked with solving a series of sadistic killings of young women, even her psychic powers can’t crack the case. Instead, she finds herself drawn to the killer, heedless of the danger.
On top of all that, her sexy partner, Joe, proves to be more distracting than helpful. They pursue an illicit affair, trying to avoid suspicions from their fellow officers, or developing feelings for one another. She uses him to recreate the crimes, satisfying her growing dark desires.
Just as they get closer to the killer, so does the killer get closer to her, taunting –and tempting– Claudia through the final memories of his unfortunate victims. He’s set his sights on her, and if she can’t puzzle out his identity, then she’ll get to experience his sadism first hand.

An MST3K take on the book trailer, featuring the characters of His redemption.
I resolved to read more in 2019, and for January, I read two novels and two short stories, which I am going to pretend meets my goal of three novels this month. I also released a novel, so giving myself a bit of a break here.
My favorite novel this month was Kyra Halland’s Beneath the Canyons. Fantasy western with charming characters and romance. The world building is intriguing, if a little undeveloped in this first book. But that leaves the plot plenty of space for future installments. The romance moves really slow, until the last fourth of the book, in which it progresses at breakneck speed, but it’s fairly satisfying. Looking forward to reading future books.
