On Amazon: The Call
Disillusioned. Dumped. Unemployed.
Sam Wilson, a down-on-his-luck mythology geek and self-proclaimed loser spots an attractive woman poised to jump from the Golden Gate Bridge. Sam knows he must try to save her. But when the woman morphs into a shrieking demon and throws him from the bridge, Sam accepts his life is over.
Deep in frigid waters, Sam undergoes a near-death experience. He sees a vision of a transformed world, but one only possible with his help. In exchange for his life, Sam accepts the challenge.
Rescued by his own unusual guardian angel, Sam finds himself pulled into a dangerous quest: A demonic sound lethal only to angels must be silenced so that exiled angels may return to San Francisco or every angel, the city and ultimately, mankind will die.
Kathleen Pickering is one of my favorite new HQN authors and I’m so excited to read her super romances. But she also has her Kat Covelle book about a Mythology teacher named Sam in San Franscisco. Anyone who knows me, knows I’m a sucker for Mythology. I had to buy this book, and I bought from her personally at the Heather Graham‘s Writers for New Orleans conference. Upon coming home, I must say Sam has an interesting life. The world has gone crazy. His girlfriend dumped him because she became a lesbian. Sam’s students are shooting each other because of the mythological happenings and oh yeah, a hydra falls on his car… clearly Sam is not having a good day.
Then the story morphs into this Matrix like questioning and Sam is figuring out the new world order, and what’s going on. And I enjoyed the addition of Rosemary… cute, but I’m a sucker for romance. Anyhow back to the story and defeating the power of Lucifer.
Kat does a great job with her imaginative spirit. Sam’s interesting. I’d recommend this book.
Kathleen’s the one to the right of Heather Graham (Heather is the one with the huge hair aka the costume. I’m the second to last on the right. Sheena, co-manager of the site is the girl in the front in Green.)
From Left Kathleen DePaulo, Kristin Wallace, Teresa Davant (pink), Heather (hair), Traci Hall (Heather’s arm around her), Sheena is in the front next to Pearl Wolf, Kathleen Pickering is the head next to Heather and between Sheena and Pearl, Bonnie Vanek is next to Kathleen and me (lace top), and then Aleka Nakis… All good Florida people.
