Huge apologies to Juliette Cross for picking up the wrong interview for the blog! So I’m reposting, and I hope you’ll read her REAL answers to the QandA! Juliette is dropping by today to celebrate the release TODAY of THE DEEPEST WELL, book one in her new Age of Gray series for Samhain.
About Juliette: Juliette is a multi-published author of paranormal and urban fantasy romance. She calls lush, moss-laden Louisiana home, where the landscape curls into her imagination, creating mystical settings for her stories. From the moment she read JANE EYRE as a teenager, she fell in love with the Gothic romance–brooding characters, mysterious settings, persevering heroines, and dark, sexy heroes. Even then, she not only longed to read more books set in Gothic worlds, she wanted to create her own. You can find her at her website, Amazon author page, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Goodreads–and sign up for her newsletter.
ABOUT THE DEEPEST WELL: Lady Katherine Blakely is married to a monster. On the same night she witnesses how low her husband can sink, she meets a charming stranger, a gentleman from top to toe. Yet even her gallant rescuer is possessed of a dark side…..Lord George Draconis Thornton, commander of the Dominus Daemonum, is on a mission to expel the demon prince Damas back to the underworld. But a golden-haired beauty derails his plans and stirs an attraction he’s never felt before, not even for his centuries-dead wife….Discovering Lord Blakely is in league with Damas, George sweeps Katherine away from the chaos and devilry threatening her life. With every touch, their love grows by joyful leaps and bounds….Sensing his enemy’s vulnerability, Damas kidnaps Katherine to his hellish lair, where he wages a sensual assault on her defenses. As George tears at heaven and earth to find her, he is painfully aware of only one way to save her soul. The cost will break her heart…and destroy his own….Warning: Contains wolves in gentlemen’s clothing, a precipitous descent into Hell, and a frightening glimpse of a post-apocalyptic world where angels and demons wage war for dominion on earth.
Sounds cool, eh? And now, let’s hear from Juliette…

Lady Katherine is married to a monster of a man, but she doesn’t realize she’s about to meet real monsters—demons. George Draconis is the commander of a league of hunters walking the earth to protect humanity. But when George meets Katherine, his priorities shift to protect only her at all costs, no matter how many decades it takes to do so.

Things heat up quick in the icy wilderness.
