DEATH'S ANGEL by Heather Killough-Walden
Released: Dec. 31, 2012

"With numerous nefarious villains, fascinating supernatural abilities and details, and an action-packed plot all serving the sweet yet sexy romantic core of the story, this book will keep its intended paranormal-romantic-suspense audience entertained and engaged."
