Iâ€™ve brought Veiron and Erin to my famous interview room. Itâ€™s rather swanky and a little bit gothic, reflecting my personal tastes. The walls are black and the furniture beside the large white marble fireplace are three red velvet tall backed armchairs with gold carved wooden frames. I have two opposite me, and only one is occupied today.
Veiron laughs as Erin says something to him, his large hands settled on her left hip as he holds her on his lap. She sits side on to him, one arm around his shoulders, and strokes her fingers through his wild dark red hair and looks down into his dark eyes, smiling brightly at her Hellâ€™s angel. Her fingers drop to his chest, caressing the black t-shirt stretched tight over his powerful body. She blends into him, her black dress and leggings merging with his t-shirt and jeans. These two were made for each other and Iâ€™m sure they bought their heavy black leather boots at the same store.
Veiron reaches up and brushes her black jaw-length hair back from her face, sweeping his fingers across her cheek at the same time. Thereâ€™s a smile in her amber eyes as he whispers something to her, and then she nudges his shoulder, pushing him back against the chair, and looks my way.
Itâ€™s my chance to start our interview and I seize it.
FELICITY: I have Veiron and Erin here with me today to talk about their book, Her Demonic Angel, and also about their roles in Her Wicked Angel. Firstly, can you tell us a little about yourself?
ERIN: Oh, I donâ€™t know where to begin. Iâ€™m an artist and grew up in London, with my sister Amelia, who it turns out is some super bad-ass.
VEIRON: *gives her a sexy grin* Youâ€™re pretty bad-ass yourself, Sweetheart.
ERIN: *blushing* Maybe once in a while. But look whoâ€™s talking.
VEIRON: *grin widens*
FELICITY: Back to the introductions? I donâ€™t want my eyeballs seared by you two snogging and I know weâ€™re heading that way right now.
ERIN: Sorry. What was I saying? I keep forgetting things at the moment. Ah, that was it. I grew up in London, and was leading a pretty normal life until some big dumb Hellâ€™s angels came and grabbed me and took me down to Hell and the Devil.
VEIRON: Big dumb Hellâ€™s angels? *quirks a dark red eyebrow* I hope youâ€™re not generalising with that one. *she shakes her head* Good. Iâ€™ll have it known Iâ€™m not dumbâ€¦ but I am big. *throws her a salacious grin*
FELICITY: Just tell everyone about yourself so we can continue. You were an angel of Heaven once, a very long time ago, and were forced to fall as part of an eternal game between Heaven and Hell.
VEIRON: I was. Iâ€™m one of the pawns in their game. Marcus is Heavenâ€™s pawn, and Iâ€™m Hellâ€™s. Since all angels were born in Heaven, I always end up back there whenever the game is decided and I die. I get a few nice years as a good guy and then I fall. Nothing I do changes it.
FELICITY: So youâ€™ll fall regardless of what you do? You can be a good guy, a perfect angel, totally dedicated to Heaven and everything that entails, and youâ€™ll still fall?
VEIRON: Correct. I donâ€™t get a choice and I donâ€™t know itâ€™s going to happen to me. All angels are reborn without memory of their previous life. The Devil is a little *bleep* though and whenever I fall and pledge myself to him, he restores all my memories. Did you just censor me?
FELICITY: Yes. Letâ€™s try to keep the foul language to a minimum.
VEIRON: What the *bleep*! You did this to me last time you interviewed me too. You had better not censor me when Iâ€™m not swearing like you did then. You made some things sound rude and just plain wrong.
ERIN: *laughing* Donâ€™t get him all growly. I have to put up with him after youâ€™re all gone. I wonâ€™t hear the end of it.
FELICITY: Sorry. You both have experience of Hell. That realm features a lot in the latest romance in your series, Her Wicked Angel, as Asmodeus is also from there. What is Hell like?
ERIN: *shudders* Iâ€™m getting used to it now, but itâ€™s a horrible place. Itâ€™s so grim and everything is black rough rock and boiling lava. It stinks too. I swear, you need about ten showers to get that stink off you when you get out of there!
VEIRON: It is as grim as she says. I spent centuries there and I was always eager to get out into the mortal realm. Most Hellâ€™s angels are the same. Weâ€™ve tasted the fresh clean air of the mortal realm, and seen the beauty and itâ€™s probably the closest thing to Heaven weâ€™ll seeâ€¦ and we pine for that when weâ€™re stuck surrounded by the black grim landscape of Hell.
FELICITY: Iâ€™m sure you can feel sorry for Asmodeus then as he had never left Hell in all his many millennia of living until the Devil sent him to Paris to retrieve Liora for him.
VEIRON: *nods* Damn right I can. I still canâ€™t believe heâ€™s back there, living in that realm. I canâ€™t believe Liora is happy down there either.
ERIN: Liora is happy to be wherever Asmodeus is and they do sort of have to be there. Itâ€™s not like Asmodeus has a choice.
VEIRON: *shrugs* I guess youâ€™re right. I donâ€™t envy them though. Poor bastard canâ€™t even form a contract with Liora to escape his *bleeping* master like I could with Erin.
FELICITY: You werenâ€™t so enamoured with Asmodeus when you first met him, Veiron. Do you feel differently about him now?
VEIRON: *shrugs again* Heâ€™s not so bad. I kinda feel for the bloke. I mean, whenever heâ€™s on the island with us all, Apollyon watches him constantly with an air of dark expectation and grimness, as if Asmodeus is just going to flip his lid and kill us all. I donâ€™t think thatâ€™s the case. I think seeing the way everyone else reacts to him makes me a little less inclined to be hard on the bloke for being what he was born to beâ€”pretty much evil. I still have an issue with him about what he did to Nevar, but then I also have an issue with Nevar about how he gave himself over to the darkness.
ERIN: Plus, he does help you fish for dinner. *he scowls* Admit it. You like having a buddy a little more like youâ€¦ sort of an outcastâ€¦ and he always has your back.
FELICITY: Aww. You have a new best friend!
VEIRON: *growls* Heâ€™s clingy.
ERIN: *shakes her head* Donâ€™t listen to him. Asmodeus isnâ€™t clingyâ€¦ and who was it who got him drinking beers on the rocks during the sunset? Who taught him the lyrics to his favourite songs so they could rock out together at godawful hours in the morning? Who was it who pushed him into sparring sessions that last most of the day when he comes to visitâ€¦ convincing him to go all out, even though that means we normally end up with half the island looking like a bomb has hit it?
FELICITY: *bites back a laugh*
VEIRON: *glares* Whatever.
ERIN: If anything, I would say that Asmodeus has a new best friend. Veiron has really taken to him. Donâ€™t let him fool you. I think itâ€™s nice though. Iâ€™m glad that the others are easing off too and not being so hard on him. When he first came to the island, I couldnâ€™t ignore the similarities between his and Lioraâ€™s situation and what I went through with Veiron when we wanted to become part of the group. Everyone wanted to push Veiron away too.
FELICITY: Now youâ€™re pretty much the powerhouse of the group. Letâ€™s talk a little about your romance in Her Demonic Angel now. Can you tell us about what happened to bring you together?
VEIRON: All Hell broke loose in our story. It was pandemonium. The wheels were set in motion far quicker than any of us anticipated and we certainly didnâ€™t expect that Erin would turn out to be a target. When Marcus and Amelia asked me to go to Hell, I knew it was important. They wouldnâ€™t ask me to risk my neck going back down there if it wasnâ€™t. I also knew that Marcus would never allow Amelia to head into Hell. Itâ€™s too dangerous for her. If she dies… well, we just have to keep her alive at all costs. I went because I knew the land well and could move around relatively undetected and with only minor problems as long as I stayed away from the Devil. I certainly wasnâ€™t expecting to find such a beautiful and fiery woman as the object of my rescue mission.
ERIN: Aww. Man, I love you. *grins* Well, like he said really. One moment I was in my apartment and the next I was in some horror-movie cell in Hell with only three sides and one heck of a sheer drop into a river of lava. I actually met Asmodeus there for a brief momentâ€¦ and then Veiron showed up, all smexy and dangerous, like a gorgeous warrior with his big sword. *blushes* Not that sort of sword though. I thought I was losing my mind and I wasnâ€™t sure who to trust, but Veiron was there for meâ€¦ and we went through so much and I might have lost my mind at one point because I did try to kill the Devilâ€¦ well, thatâ€™s just crazy, right?
FELICITY: A little. But you still have plans to kick his arse?
VEIRON: How come you can say *bleep* and Iâ€¦ hey!
ERIN: *laughs* Oh, seriously, donâ€™tâ€¦ heâ€™ll be moody about this for days.
VEIRON: Will not.
FELICITY: I wonâ€™t argue. I know better than to get into a round of â€œwill notâ€ â€“ â€œwill tooâ€ with you. Final question… huge events are in motion that could affect not only Heaven and Hell, but the fate of the mortal realm too. These events have brought together a rather motley crew of angels. What is it like working with them and do you think you can prevail?
VEIRON: I really think we canâ€¦ but part of me hopes itâ€™s a while before things kick off. *places his hand on Erinâ€™s pregnancy swell* If you know what I mean? *I nod* Itâ€™s not going to be easy and thereâ€™s a piece of me that feels uneasy about it all. These are dangerous times and there is a lot at stake.
ERIN: *places her hand over his* They are and there is, but weâ€™ll get through this together. We will all have each otherâ€™s backs and we wonâ€™t let anything bad happen to any of us. Weâ€™re a team and thatâ€™s the way weâ€™ll fightâ€”together.
FELICITY: Sage words. Iâ€™m sure you guys will prevail and pretty much save the world. Thank you for meeting with me today and chatting. Is there anything else that youâ€™d like to add?
ERIN: Only that it was nice to be here and see you again, and that I bet you canâ€™t wait to write Nevarâ€™s storyâ€¦ Iâ€™ve heard readers are already impatient in their wait for it.
VEIRON: It was great being here, but can I get Erin home now?
FELICITY: Youâ€™re the impatient one. Off you go then. I know you just want to keep her safe. Everyone, you can read Erin and Veironâ€™s novel, Her Demonic Angel, to learn more about them and their romance and they also show up in the newest novel, Her Wicked Angel.

Her Wicked Angel
The King of Demons and the Devilâ€™s right hand man, Asmodeus is a dark angel born of evil and created for destruction. When his master orders him to venture into the mortal world and retrieve a female for him, he seizes the chance to leave Hell for the first time, uncaring of what the Devil has planned for herâ€¦ until he sets eyes on the most beautiful woman he has ever seenâ€”a female who awakens new feelings within his black heart, unleashing passion so intense that it controls him and desire he cannot resist.
He will not let his wretched master have her. She will belong to him.
Liora is a witch with a bad reputation and an obsession with fighting demons. A mission gone wrong sees her sent to Paris to cool off, but when a dark and deadly warrior with a gaze of golden fire lands in her life, she ends up burning hotter than Hell for the wicked angel. Nothing will stand between her and the immense, forbidding male. Not her cousin. Not Asmodeusâ€™s sworn enemy and twin, Apollyon. And certainly not the Devil.
Caught up in a tempest of danger and soul-searing passion, can they survive against the odds and seize their forever after?
