You close your eyes and finally make the decision to end your life only to have him show up. Gabriel, here to give you a second chance for salvation. They say he’s an angel, but then again, they don’t have to serve under him. He offers you a chance to be a member of the Frozen, a group of demon hunters. Serve your sentence and you can ascend to heaven. Refuse, well the punishment has been clearly laid out in the scriptures. It’s a last chance. But when your body is frozen in time can your heart still beat? 
Nye, a former slave who lost his love and was tired of being under the control of another ended his life in 1859. His stubborn ways kept him under Gabriel’s thumb and from ascending to Heaven. Feeling that a woman was the cause of his downfall he hasn’t had an urge for a woman for over a hundred and fifty years. Knowing that he has less than seven years left until he earns salvation he is staying on the straight and narrow – until a woman gets caught in the crossfire during a demon hunt. 
Receiving devastating news, Kiriana moves across the country only to get caught up in the world of our protectors The Frozen. With each passing moment Nye and Kiriana are pulled into an attraction that could be their ultimate demise or their greatest salvation…  
All the while Damarion, is leading a group of female demons as they try to protect the demons sent from Hell to obtain the souls of humans around the world. Being assigned to Earth as a punishment for crimes against the royal family, Damarion learns that there are dangers within his coven trying to take him down and stop him from returning to his love still trapped in Hell and threaten the love that he was so sure was true. 

I could see her hand was reaching for the door handle which made me wonder if she actually thought she was could jump and survive.  I laughed. 
            “I wouldn’t try it,” I warned, shooting a look at her. 
            Her breathing increased and I could see the tears in her eyes.
            “Don’t cry,” it came out as an order but it was really more of a plea.  “It won’t help.”
            “Don’t tell me what the hell to do,” she screamed with a fury I wasn’t prepared for.  Her eyes bore into me as she braced herself against the dashboard and the headrest.  “If you think I’m just going let you touch…”
            “I don’t want to touch you,” I snapped.
            That made her catch her breath and her arms released their hold and crossed on her chest.  Now she actually looked like she was pouting.
            “What?  I’m just supposed to want to get between your legs because there’s a hole there.  Nah.”
            “Why did you grab me?”  She growled through gritted teeth like I'd just line jumped her at Target.
            “You’re hurt.”
            “You’re not going toward the hospital.”
            “No, I’m not.  They couldn’t help you.”
            “Because the poison that’s about to hit you in the next, say, five minutes, would take them hours to figure out.”
            Shock crossed her face as she saw her death coming on fast.  I really didn’t care.  I’m sure my sudden desire to become a savior was only due to my fear of Gabriel’s wrath.  At least that’s what I was telling myself.

Like the beat of a primal drum whispering the rhythm of an ancient dance, the lifestyle calls…  
At the seasoned age of fifty-six, Allen Bourke has resigned himself to the fact he’ll probably never find someone to top he can also love. While he’s had wives and lovers, none of them endured and he’s come to the conclusion the clock’s ticking and age is working against him. Then a very intriguing Nicki Cartwright pings on his radar at what Allen determines will be his last house party. He can’t help but notice while he and his friends are getting older, the players emerging on the scene are forever getting younger. Nicki's no exception. Determined to resist the vibes humming between them, he only agrees to service her after his old friend, Kyle Montgomery, convinces him it's entirely feasible. Then it’s brought to Allen’s attention who Nicki really is. Knowing their pasts are forever intertwined, as hard as he tries to ignore his heart, he finds himself yielding to the tides of fate. 
Born to senatorial royalty, Nicki Cartwright has spent her entire life trying to shield her mother from her father’s wrath while drifting further and further into a world where panic is normal and anxiety is always on the edge of her reality. Tired of burning the candle at both ends and forever trying to live up to the picture of All-American perfection her father James Cartwright touts as his ace in the hole during election cycles, Nicki finds herself on the path of self-discovery in search of relief from the stressors continually swamping her mind. What she doesn’t expect is to find who she thought she was is truly just a shadow of the person she really is. And what scares her most is the fact Allen, the only person she thought she could trust, has been holding a secret since before she was born which could destroy her entire family.

“What in the hell are you doing in a place like this on Christmas Eve?” Allen asked point blank.
“What the hell are you doing here?” Nicki countered.
She was clearly going to test every ounce of patience Allen had established in his thirty-some-odd years of living the life.
“Don’t you have a family? Shouldn’t you be somewhere having dinner and eggnog? Opening gifts? Eating stale fruit cake?” Determined to chip away her haughty exterior and get to the very middle of her, Allen redirected his tone a bit more to the empathetic side. Although, she had him in the same corner he’d backed her into. Waiting with as much resolve to not jerk her to her feet, bend her over the end of the couch she graced, flip the end of that teeny skirt up, and have his way with her as he could muster, he clutched the ends of the arms of the chair. “Parents? Siblings? Isn’t there anyone?”
Her clipped, non-descript answer irked Allen and he gritted his teeth to keep from dressing her down. They were doing nothing more than talking at this point and he owed her the courtesy of listening. Maybe if he could pry her open far enough, she’d relinquish a bit and he could push the door further and offer what he should have two nights ago. Safe harbor. Then maybe they could get on with the nasty business of negotiating and finding out more about each other and at some point maybe his dick could take over before the real business of playing began.
“Do they live in the area?”
“Do you?”
For Christ’s sake, this would never do. It was exhausting and at this rate they’d be here until the sun rose and set again trying to get past one word answers.

Thor, in dolphin form, was enjoying the swim until his lazy circuit was abruptly cut off by a seal pup with the temerity to snatch the herring he’d caught right out of his mouth.    Before he could even think what the fuck, the pup dove.  Thor followed, intending to grab his snack back and teach the pup a lesson about stealing from dolphins.  He saw the little thief flip half of the herring to another pup, just as a huge, dark shadow rocketed from below.  Shark!  A goddamn shark!    Thor saw red as he watched his little thief throw himself into the path of the predator to keep its sibling from certain death.   Unfortunately, the shark latched on and shook the helpless hero.  Thor backed up for more room and then accelerated at full ramming speed.  The shark released the pup from its maw as it went belly up in death.  Its sibling was circling and nudging him, but the little thief remained immobile in water stained red from the savage bite.  Thor grabbed the wounded seal gently in his mouth and headed for shore; ignoring the repeated ramming from the other pup.  He didn’t have time to explain he was trying to help, and besides, he didn’t speak seal.  He figured the other pup would follow as far as he could, and then hang around the area until he and Auric could nurse the wounded one back to health and release it.
He all but ran toward Auric the moment his feet touched the sand.  “Hurry, we need to stop the bleeding.  The pup was attacked by a shark and…”   

            Before he could continue a furious voice at thigh level, bellowed, “Leave me brother alone!”
