I call it HEAVEN-SENT WARRIOR … Clay, Candy, Love Notes

What Inspired My Novel~
With the help of my sisters, I discovered a nearby treasure trove filled with bronze castings by the French sculptor, Auguste Rodin. I quickly realized I could use the 164 acres of the NC Museum of Art to set my paranormal romance. The most beautiful part of this museum is their outdoor garden with a reflecting pool and an idea hit me…what if demons slipped from that pool? What if warriors slept inside statues, and awakened to fight them? My 24th book, Heaven-sent Warrior, is now a reality.

I have written dozens of stories set in Scotland or with Scottish characters and even a dragon or two, so a French hero might strike you as odd. Rest assured, because I did not totally stray from my love of all things Scottish. My heroine is of Scottish descent and finds out she is actually half Fae. I am working on the second book, titled Heaven-sent Highlander, which will also be released by Soul Mate Publishing. (Yes! More kilts!)

Heaven-sent Warrior Blurb~
Henrí Chevalier's last memory, before stumbling naked into a museum’s moonlit garden, was Auguste Rodin and his dusty Paris studio in 1886. To escape his broken heart, Henrí volunteered to sleep inside a statue until needed. Expecting to die, he discovers he must learn to use the unexpected powers Heaven has given him. Without them he will fail his mission against otherworldly creatures, such as demons and faeries. 

Kenzie Mackintosh, a dedicated art museum's curator, spies a naked man hiding among bronze statues. A quick glance ignites desire within her, but she is too tied-up in work to act on it. Unaware of her fae heritage, their relationship heats up as he disrupts her job. While Henrí tries to process modern buildings, cars, and a broken elevator, a demon attacks and forces Henrí and Kenzie to enlist the aid of her powerful fae relatives. When the demon possesses the body of her ex-lover and threatens to kill him, then use her to take over the world, Henrí and Kenzie must learn to trust each other, even if Kenzie’s death might be the only answer to the world’s salvation.
