I would like you all to welcome Angela Dennis as she takes over, and talks about her new release Dance With The Devil.
Finding Strength in the Madness
There is nothing more beautiful than watching another person embrace themselves, flaws and all, and own their own power. When I sat down to write Dance with the Devil, I knew that I wanted my heroine to embody this idea. Her journey to self-acceptance is littered with violence, heartbreak, and sorrow. But the pain she experiences serves to mold her into a woman who is capable of anything. But Jillian isn’t alone. Most of us struggle daily to accept ourselves, drowning in self-criticism, and struggling to rise above.
Jillian is an outcast. She’s forced to live within the confines of the Pride, but she is different from the other lions. First off, she’s a half-blood. Her mom was a witch, her father the Alpha of the Pride. And her animal form is a black lion, a creature that is only supposed to exist in nightmares. Acting out of fear, the Pride torments Jillian from birth. She is beaten down and made to feel inferior because of who and what she is. But Jillian is anything but broken. She fights back, killing her father’s first enforcer when he attacks her. But that action sends her life spiraling out of control, making her question her sanity and believe the lies. Despite that, it is also the catalyst for her journey into self-acceptance.
Several years later, she is forced to return to the Pride as their Alpha. She embraces her new role, determined to save the very people who tormented and chased her away. But in order to do so, she has to accept herself—own her own power.
I love Jillian. Not just because she’s a strong, witty, confident heroine. But because she is a beacon of hope. Proof that anyone can rise above their circumstances and kick some serious ass. I find inspiration in that. I hope you do as well.
Born to be enemies. Destined to be lovers.
Soul’s Harbor Pride, Book 1
After killing one of her father’s enforcers, half-blood lion shifter Jillian Winters ran for her life, landing in an upscale bar halfway across the country. Her boss, Carrick—a pure-blood shifter—has no idea his barmaid is a fugitive.
When her father’s recklessness puts the Pride at risk, Jillian must return home and assume his place as Alpha. But not before she indulges in a taste of the attraction that’s been building for years between her and Carrick.
Carrick Granger has had a soft spot for Jillian from the moment she stepped into his bar, soaking wet and afraid of her own shadow. He knows she has secrets. So does he. He’s also the outcast son of an Alpha—and now that his father is dead, he, too, has been summoned home.
Thinking they’ll never see each other again, the simmering heat between them ignites like a match to gunpowder. But then the bullets start flying, forcing them to choose—duty to their Prides, or the one person they can’t live without.
Warning: This book contains deception, lies, betrayal, a sexy lion who is determined to claim his mate, and a mating bond that will change the landscape of the Prides forever.
