Samantha Bennet, the angel-human hybrid, encounters a villain against whom she is helpless—Lust, an immoral woman who exudes a pheromone that places Samantha under her complete control. Samantha feels that she truly loves this strange woman and would do anything for her—until she wakes up the next day and realizes she had been forced into her first Sapphic encounter.

Officer Neal, Samantha's boyfriend, remains unaware that she is the Reaper, the vigilante the law has sworn to bring to justice. His kiss is redeeming, his blazing touch brands Samantha, reminding her she is his possession, Lust or no Lust.

Somewhere in the city is the artist responsible for promoting images of the Reaper. Samantha is shocked to learn the delicate girl possesses another strange power beyond her gifted sight—the ability to drain the life force. When clairvoyant predictions ring true, Samantha encounters more than she bargained for. Especially after an orchestrated attack leaves Samantha vulnerable and injured.

Will she survive the wrath of the righteous warriors? Can she heal from the holy fire that cuts through her armor and sears her very human flesh? Are the accusations true? Is Samantha truly a creature borne of darkness or is she endorsed by Heaven?

The Romance Radio Presents...RM Sotera

RM Sotera and I discuss her writing and the three books in the “Dirty” series: Dirty Dancer, Dirty Deed and Dirty Valkyrie. Her ability to create a world where vampires exist alongside of Norse Gods is exemplary. Each of her books can be read as a stand-alone volume, but, for the absolute best experience, I highly suggest you read them in order (as above).

While each of her books include characters from the others, a different protagonist takes center stage in each. These are a fun read, highly entertaining and the mix of mythos makes these stories wonderfully creative. When a good author mixes it up with her favorite paranormal characters, you are in for a real treat.

WARNING: This book contains content that may offend some readers.
By day, Samantha Bennet is many things—sister, daughter, friend, lover, associate, officer of the law… But by night, she is something—and someone—quite different. She is a Reaper, a vigilante Nephalim, an angel-human hybrid who has the soul of a human and the partial power of a Fallen angel.

By night she walks the streets of the City stalking her criminal quarry, using her supernatural abilities to make victims of those who would prey upon society’s innocent. Her dark half craves the blood of sinners, it is in that blood price levied against their crimes that she finds the strength to do what she must—seek out her destiny for the good of mankind.

When at a tender age Samantha is brutally attacked by three men, her latent supernatural abilities manifest for the first time. In anger, she hunts them down and dispatches of them in one bloody showdown after another. Years later as a police officer, she struggles to balance her duty as an upholder of the law with her calling as a vigilante of the night.

Complicating her life is the passion that she finds in the arms of a co-worker. Can she afford to fall in love with a fellow officer of the law, a man who might stumble onto the truth about her dual nature? Is Samantha a serial killer preying on monsters with human faces or is she a monster herself? Is she a plague upon mankind if her actions are endorsed by Heaven?
