First, thank you Angela, for hosting another leg of the tour for the launch of my debut novel, LACRIMOSA. Before we get started with the tour post, here is a little blurb about the story:
It’s been three thousand years since the fall of Azzaziel and the rebirth of evil; three thousand years since the Sentinal Order, an elite group of warrior angels, returned to Celestium. Their job—rid Earth of the dark creatures, the UnHoly. And with luck, end Azza’s rule.Today I am continuing with Nesy's chapter, bringing you part 2 of my reading of the first chapter of LACRIMOSA:
As if casting out demons isn’t hard enough, five-hundred-year-old Nesy has to masquerade as a teenage girl to do it. Nesy is the best of the Sentinals. She never makes mistakes, never hesitates, never gets emotionally involved. Until she meets Aydan.
He is evil incarnate; a fallen angel that feeds off the souls of others. Everything Nesy is supposed to hate. But she can’t, because he’s also the love of her former life as a human girl—a life that ended too soon, tying her to emotions she was never supposed to feel.
Now Nesy must choose between doing her duty—damning Aydan to the fiery depths of hell—or saving him, and condemning herself. And her choice may cost her, and Celestium, far more than anyone realizes.

~Folks, I don't know about you, but I'm so excited, I could dance a jig*!!!!
*anyone caught videotaping said jig will receive more than just my evil eye. And if you somehow get to put it on Youtube, don't put it under the heading, Whales Gone Wild lol!!!!!!
Anywho, there's lots many of us have done for love. There was a short time my friends didn't recognize me, I was so far gone in love. What of you? How much would you sacrifice for love?
