Gangbusters is here! I'm releasing the demons!

I’m released! And so are my angels and demons. Just when you’d counted on the monsters going away.

Greetings, lovers of monsters everywhere.

Here’s a steamy excerpt of my brand-new angels & demons/Sci-Fi Romance release, Gangbusters, coming to you from BookStrand. Hot off the presses.

Be the first to review Gangbusters. Get in on the 15% new release price! Sweeeeet. Monsters on discount. The best kind. Storming villagers can afford new rakes with prices this low. :-)


Who will stand on the front lines against evil in the future?


Daniel Tierney and his fellow I-Marshals take down the organizations producing the most dangerous substance in the Alliance. But reporter Faith Vedder turns up at the worst times, including Danny’s near-assassination. He’s had enough of her interference and requires her source of information.

Faith won’t tell him anything that compromises her Pulitzer-worthy story, not even under the magic of hot attraction. She doesn’t know she’s surrounded by fallen angels at war. Danny’s not finished making demands. She doesn’t understand until a giant, snorting, winged monster slobbers down her back, threatening to flay her.

The gangbusters can’t delay in their mission to shut down gangs until Danny learns the new criminal kingpin of their world is a man who once held Faith’s heart. In the guise of a gangland executioner named Heretic, Danny will destroy him. Even if it destroys Faith.

Angels are watching. Demons are plotting. Faith is the key.

Are you in the mood for heat?
***

          Wrapped in her bathrobe and feeling pretty silly for taking a gun with her for a bath, Faith came from the shower room to find all the lights out in her home. She was sure she’d left at least some of the lights on. The only visible thing was a red read-out of the clock mounted on the wall.
          “Bedroom lights on,” she told the computer system that operated the rented home. The room lit up, and she discovered the furniture rearranged.
          There was no imagining this. She held her gun up for business. If someone were there to hurt her, why did he wait to do it?
          “This sooo isn’t funny,” she said to her unseen tormentor, not expecting an answer.
          She heard a deep masculine chuckle in the room with her. Then a resonant, seemingly disembodied voice said to her, “It’s funnier on my end, I know. The surprised expression on your face is priceless.”
          A shiver swept through her. Her trigger finger itched. “Who’s here?”
          “Who I am is less important than my mission. I’ve been sent to kill you, Faith.” It was a smooth baritone voice with a particular unnamable element that moved through her like a hot wind.
          She turned the gun toward the voice and pulled the trigger, only to hear and feel the click of an unloaded gun. She heard him laugh again.
          “Kitty has claws.” His voice sounded sinister. “I couldn’t leave you ammo.”
          Dumping the gun, she scrambled to her side table where she picked up the lamp, pulled it free from its power source, and she brandished it as a weapon. Her sight swept the room for some hint of his position. She couldn’t see him in the two mirrors in the room.
          “You better believe I have claws, buddy. If you’re planning to rape me, you’ll get the roughest time you’ve ever had.”
          “I’ll take your warning. Get dressed. We’re leaving.”
          Her brow crashed into her vision. Going somewhere with an invisible man? She was better off remaining on her turf than submitting to his. “I’m fine with getting dressed, but I’m not going anywhere with you if you won’t show your face. If you plan to rape and kill me, let’s get it over with right here.”
          “I’m not a rapist.”
          “No, you’re a killer. You told me you’ve been sent to kill me.”
          She scanned the small room for a better weapon. There were knives in the kitchen. Could she get him to move this debate into the kitchen? She left her cell phone by the computer keyboard. Attempted murder was a great reason to call the cops.
          “I’m going to make you disappear, Faith.”
          The lamp was yanked from her grasp, and, before she had a moment to respond, he had her wrist hand-cuffed to the headboard of the bed. She didn’t have a split-second to fight back. He moved faster than her tired brain operated.
          “Instead of killing you,” the voice, now beside her, said, “I’m going to relocate you.”
          The drawers of her dresser slid out, and clothes flew from them onto the floor.
          “Mmm,” she heard, as she watched her lingerie held up for inspection. His choice sailed onto the bed. A favorite blue blouse hung in mid-air for a second, and he said, “Hmm, yeah.”
          Then the blouse landed in her lap. A pair of black jeans soon followed.
          “I’m not leaving, and you and your people can’t scare me away!”
          “It doesn’t frighten you, Faith…that I’ve entered your home and taken possession of you?”
          “N—No.”
          “It should.”
          She was terrified, and hoped the shaking didn’t show.
          His voice, closing in on her again but from a different direction, echoed through the old steel-frame cottage, further disheveling her. “I could easily overcome you, Faith.”
          “N—No, I’m not a child quickly frightened away. I have a decade in martial arts, and I could kick your ass!” Unable to see his expression, she couldn’t gauge if the ridiculous promise of a hard defense affected him. Maybe he was a small man, and she had a chance against him.
          “What kind of martial arts?” his deep velvet voice asked.
          “Onterie! The most deadly of the martial arts! And I have a black belt! How about that!”
          “Onterie doesn’t give out belts. I doubt you’ve spent an hour in an Onterie class. People who master Onterie don’t talk about it.”
          The breath fled her lungs. “I’m still not scared!”
          “Then you’re stupider than you look or write. I’ve read some of your stories, and you sounded much smarter than this. You’re also a rotten liar, Faith. Remember that so you don’t get into more trouble. Get dressed.”
          A pair of boots came flying toward her from her closet, missing her by centimeters.
          She grew more angry by the minute that she’d be forced to leave. “Don’t call me Faith! You don’t know me!”
          A splash of papers came from nowhere and landed on the bed next to her. She picked them up and thumbed through report after report of her, information from family connections to her library loans.
          “Your full name is Victoria Faith Vedder. You switched from Vicky to Faith at age seven when there were too many Vickies in school. Your favorite food is kung pao chicken. Your favorite drink is gold-label vodka with a splash of orange juice. Your favorite color is black, like your coffee and comedy. A solid B student, you’d served on your college yearbook staff, and you’d added your name to the rosters of nearly every team that played for the school. As a joke. Funny.”
          She heard the smile in his voice. She hadn’t known that last one had been caught and documented for the society-shaking crime it had been. It was probably a good idea not to go back for a reunion.
          Miffed he knew so much of her, she gathered the spilled papers, her best tough-girl scowl on her face. The letterhead on every page had been ripped off.
          “You hadn’t given up your chastity until college when you met a bad boy named Mako. He was not worth it.”
          Her intruder smiled again. She could sense it like a light washing over her. How could anyone learn so much about her? Did he have a record naming every man she’d slept with? She should probably get a copy of that.
          “And you’re behind on your credit payment.”
          “Not much!” It was the designer dress for her Pulitzer acceptance ceremony. She could’ve used the money for something more important, but…it was the most beautiful dress in the worlds. They’ll love her wearing it in the homeless shelter, if this story didn’t work out.
          “You’re leaving, whether you’re cooperative or not. I guarantee you I’m big enough to take you without your approval.”
          He probably was pretty big with a voice that deep. That eliminated any foolhardy hope of overcoming him physically. He was too quick—and invisible—for a surprise attack.
          Umm… He smelled like brandy. It sent a shockwave of stimulation through her.

Things Couldn't Be Better!

I'm about to submit to my publisher my newest novel in the I-Marshal Stories series, Gangbusters! I'm so thrilled about this one! High action! Three brave and hunky I-Marshals, two strong heroines, and a whole lot of demons. It was so much fun to write, I delayed the ending, just because I didn't wish to say goodbye to the characters.

My life-long best friend Bonnie is coming over today and it's fine wine, fattening foods, fun, and movies! We're celebrating! Celebrate with us!

Luminous Nights, the first episode of the I-Marshal Stories series, was an award-nominated story, and an author can't ask for much better than that. The newest, Vigilant, is pulling in fabulous reviews!

Check out the book trailer

5 Teacups from HEA Reviews! for Vigilant, a Paranormal/Sci-Fi Romance (angels & demons)

video
Good morning, everyone!


I discovered a very nice 5-star review of my steamy, action-packed Paranormal/Sci-Fi Romance, Vigilant. It’s one of the first reviews, so I’m pretty thrilled.

“I very much enjoyed [Vigilant]. Whether or not you’re a sci-fi fan, you’ll enjoy this stirring, romantic adventure.”
Check out Vigilant’s 5 out of 5 Teacups review from Happily Ever After Reviews:
http://hea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/06/review-vigilant-by-michele-hart.html

* Investigate Vigilant. Where do the mortals fit in the war between the angels and demons? *

One surviving hijacker is charged with the murders of a hundred citizens.
One cop sees her innocence.

     Alliance I-Marshal Weber hauls Yadira to her home planet and infiltrates the human-trafficking ring controlling her. But he finds himself unbearably attracted to his witness. A gift for detecting deception reveals she’s the next victim of a criminal industry.
     Descending into shadowy worlds of slavery, Yadira endures a dark angel stalking her dreams and watches the quiet I-Marshal become dangerous in her defense. Everything about him moves her…except the memory of seeing him execute the most important man in her life. Shouldn’t she take vengeance? Delusions of a heavenly guardian affect her mind.
     Slavers and demons plan to snatch her from Weber’s custody while he is uncovering connections, and Weber won’t hesitate to execute the guilty surrounding Yadira. Who but a son of fire can save her from fiends harboring hardcore fantasies of harming her?

Luminous Nights had finaled
in the 2011 Golden Quill Contest!
 
video

Cop or convict?
How many faces can one man own?

            An assassin wearing a holographic mask and a prison tattoo boards Rachel’s freighter during a prison riot, intent on collecting gadgets capable of changing a man’s identity from the black-market gang who'd stolen them. Rachel’s never sure of Jack's identity nor his goal, but he claims to be an Alliance I-Marshal. Cop or convict? The clues never stop contradicting. She's horrified to find the bright holographic mask conceals the gruesome face of a monster. And the badge doesn’t slow him from murdering people right before her eyes.

            When Rachel learns Jack will trade innocent lives for the digital miracles, she determines to make the mercenary grow a heart.  How could a stone-cold killer kiss her so hotly? How could she kiss such a dangerous deceiver?

            Jack has done years in prison to learn who’d stolen the remaining Gemini ticks, 3-D magic. Nothing will keep him from gaining extreme technology capable of unleashing galaxy-wide chaos. Forget feelings for Rachel. She can’t stop him from killing everyone involved.
