Happy Ever Afters...from the corner of Fate & Armageddon
PJ writes steamy, action-packed paranormal romance novels starring characters from both ends of the Kinsey scale and everything in between. She delves into themes like fate and overcoming the past. Her characters are strong, capable, and complex regardless of gender, and her worldbuilding is a little...intense.
When she isn't terrorizing the highways of Ohio in her red, mid-life crisis sports car or crunching numbers in Excel spreadsheets, she's writing or playing with her grandpuppies.
She is currently single and lives with her son and his two dogs, who all think they're the boss of her. They're probably right.

"Sparks fly when a world-weary deacon and his gargoyle protector risk their forbidden love to save a poverty-stricken teen caught in the crosshairs of a ruthless drug lord. "
Gideon Fawkes longs to meet the handsome young deacon who teaches at St. Anthony’s Boys Academy. There’s just one problem. Gideon is a gargoyle, and he’s pretty sure Deacon Cruz only dates humans.
Cordero Cruz knows a lot about forgiveness. It’s the cornerstone of his calling. Too bad he can never offer it to himself. Because of him, people died, and there’s no redemption for that kind of mistake.
But a lack of humanity and a heart filled with guilt are nothing compared to a young man’s life. When a merciless criminal threatens Cordero and one of his students, Gideon will have to risk more than his stony hide to protect them. Cordero must do the unthinkable to prove he’s deserving of the gargoyle turned guardian angel. But when their road to hell is paved with good intentions, they must learn only trust and redemption can pave the way for love.

Can their relationship survive the journey to redemption or will their penance be the end of their love?
Deep in their fight to protect the people of Cleveland from Dane Stevens' criminal empire, Cordero and Gideon are convinced their cause is just.
Until Cordero sees the human cost of their crusade—a failed bust that nearly kills the target and a young girl whose life has been thrown into chaos.
Gideon sees Cordero's change of heart as a threat, not just to their relationship, but to the chance at redemption for his own past.
As the fight against Stevens turns into an all-out war, Gideon and Cordero find themselves on opposite sides, and their fledgling love gets caught between what is right and what is just.

Gideon and Cordero thought they were brokering peace, but they may have just handed Cleveland to the Devil.
Cordero and Gideon are more in love than ever, but they’re also in more danger.
Coordinating the soup kitchen’s reconstruction puts Cordero under the drug lord’s thumb. But the risk proves fruitful when he learns Stevens is dealing in something more deadly than drugs.
After four months of ignoring the search for his own cure and instead trying to fulfill a promise he made to a dying monster, Gideon is no closer to finding Kaylie. When Gideon’s curse takes an unexpected turn for the worse, it threatens more than their mission. It threatens their future.
Even with the help of their found family–a witchy nun and a ninja store clerk–Cordero and Gideon may not have enough time to stop Dane Stevens and save the soul of Cleveland before Gideon’s curse destroys them all.

Everybody keeps secrets, but Bryn can steal them with a single touch. Her own, though, are locked up tight. If she doesn't play hard to get, she could wind up dead. So, trusting some guy enough to fall in love with him? Impossible.
Trygg is a berserker. He tracks, he kills, and he never forgets a scent, especially hers. One whiff of Bryn causes a split in his psyche no doctor can fix. One side of him wants her dead. The other would kill to keep her safe. So, trusting himself enough to fall in love with her? Never.
When they're thrown together to investigate a brutal murder, they can't deny their desires. The impossible will happen. Never will come. There's not enough magic in the world to stop it.
