Check out this Q&A to finds out what makes GENA SHOWALTER cringe? @genashowalter @HQNBooks @booktrib


1. What is the first book you remember reading by yourself as a child? 

 The first Sweet Valley High book. Before that, I hated to read and refused to open a book unless threatened with a month-long grounding. My grades began to slip, and I was eventually held back a year. Desperate to engage my attention, my mother and grandmother took me to the bookstore and read the backs of books to me until that Sweet Valley High book grabbed my attention and refused to let go. I had to know more about those Wakefield twins, so, I went home, read the entire thing and was hooked. Of course, I had to have the second book, then the third and fourth, and so on. I’ve never looked back.

2. What are you reading right now? 

 I’m not actually reading a work of fiction right now. I’m working on revisions for my upcoming release Last Kiss Goodnight, as well as the rough draft for the second Angels of the Dark book, and I want to keep my focus on those characters.

3. How does your garden grow? 

 One upon a time, I managed to kill all the plants we owned. I’m no longer allowed to go near a garden. There’s even a restraining order, and it’s strictly enforced.

4. What is the last thing you Googled? 

 This is going to sound weird but my last Google was “vicious phrases.” I had a good reason, I promise!

5. What makes you cringe? 

 I hate, hate, hate when I hurt someone’s feelings. I want to curl under the covers, hide and cry. Seriously. I have a compulsion to make things right.

Book Description

Leader of the most powerful army in the heavens, Zacharel has been deemed nearly too dangerous, too ruthless—and if he isn't careful, he'll lose his wings. But this warrior with a heart of ice will not be deterred from his missions at any cost…until a vulnerable human tempts him with a carnal pleasure he's never known before.Accused of a crime she did not commit, Annabelle Miller has spent four years in an institution for the criminally insane. Demons track her every move, and their king will stop at nothing to have her. Zacharel is her only hope for survival, but is the brutal angel with a touch as hot as hell her salvation—or her ultimate damnation?
