Title: Pursuit of Craze
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Allie Trask thought turning 30 was scary enough, but when seven wicked Nephilim come to Earth to claim her rock star boyfriend’s life, she suddenly has a bigger battle on her hands than crow’s feet.
Allie loved browsing the produce section of any grocery store, but especially the one in this little market with its soft lighting, faux hardwood floors, and piped- in classical music. The fruits and vegetables were organic here, not the shiny reds, greens, and yellows that glowed cartoonishly under the glaring lights of the airport hangar sized grocery store down the street. They seemed earthier here, more dignified.
She scanned her shopping list. Only one more item to go and she would have all of the ingredients for Daemon’s favorite dinner- baked spaghetti.
“Aha.” She plucked a flawless green pepper from the mound and held it up like a prize. Firm, evenly green, and extra large. She dropped it in the basket hanging from her arm, atop a package of fresh pasta.
Nowadays, even the minutiae of her life brought her pleasure. Buying a green pepper, folding their laundry, buying Daemon’s deodorant, reading excerpts from trivia and factoids books to each other over unhurried weekend meals. Not that she’d ever admit to the deodorant part. She could picture her girlfriend’s reaction to that little tidbit- hot stepping away from her with palms raised, like she was an armed madwoman.
The thought made her grin as she tucked her grocery list into the pocket of her jeans, swung around to head to the registers at the front of the store, and promptly collided with another shopper.
“Oh my goodness, please excuse me, I…” Allie looked up, and the apology dissolved on her tongue.
