Guest Blog and Giveaway with Robyn Bachar

I have cats. Two cats, to be precise, and I am allergic to both of them. I love Tweeting pictures of my cats, because clearly they are the most handsome kitties in the world. I’ve always had pets—dogs, fish, a box turtle, a cockatiel—because I love animals. I think a person’s pets say a lot about them. In my first two Bad Witch books the heroine has two overweight ginger cats named Merri and Pippin, which lets the reader know that she’s a bit of a geek and that she spoils her furry babies by overfeeding them. In Fire in the Blood, the heroine, Patience, has a demon.

But Harvey is a good demon, in fact he used to be an elf, and he’s useful. He keeps Patience in line like her own personal assistant. He always reminds her to eat when she’s too busy banishing evil demons to grab a meal. He helps her fight her battles, even though he’s about as tough as a magical cocker spaniel. In return, Patience spoils Harvey by buying him all the video games he wants. He’s particularly fond of Angry Birds and the Legend of Zelda games.

Patience and Harvey make a great team, and they’re a lot of fun to write. I like to think that my cats would have an amusing running commentary like Harvey does. If nothing else, they make their opinions known around meal times, or when I should be petting them instead of writing (which is apparently all the time). In the epic battle of lap cat versus laptop, lap cat is winning, and thus I’ve reached the end of this post. Thanks for having me today!

Book Description:

It’s good to be bad…
Patience Roberts is the last summoner standing between magiciankind and certain demon invasion. After banishing two or three demons a day for too long, gods know she’d like nothing better than a little down time with her number one distraction—Faust.

But with vampires, hunters and assassins lined up to take her out, who has the time? Still, she has to admit her resistance to the amorous faerie is wearing thin. Not that she’ll ever let on—after all, faeries are notorious for their short romantic attention spans.

Faust, a Shadowspawn faerie, watched as his outcast clan dwindled to nothing. Determined to hold on to the woman he loves, he’ll do whatever it takes to protect Patience. And one day build a life with her.

When an old demon enemy punches through the barrier between the worlds, Patience must draw on every ounce of her reputation as a cast-iron bitch to temporarily banish him. To get rid of him for good, she’ll have to sacrifice one too many pieces of her soul to leave room for love…

Warning: Contains a hero and heroine so hot they’re literally on fire, naughty faerie sex, post-coital cuteness, angsty magician drama, and yet more gratuitous violence against vampires, demons, and innocent furniture.
