We have a special guest today on BLH, Jennifer Turner, who is the author of Redemption. Please give her a warm welcome. To say thank you for all that visit today she is giving book thongs to those who comment.
People look at me funny when I say things like, “I totally love violent romances.” Maybe it’s because I look like I grew up in a small town and do my own canning (oh, hey, I do!) Either way, they just aren’t expecting me to be so enamored of all things undead, romantic, and breath holding.
When I started writing Redemption I vowed to write what I wanted to, what the story wanted. No longer would I let my fear of reactions or editors keep me from doing the book I really wanted. I’ve been crazy about horror and romance for the longest time and I found myself planted directly down in urban fantasy. I might have gone the paranormal romance angle, but I’m sure romance fans would have wanted more than I offered. Still, there’s a deliciously intense romance between Savvy, a half-angel, and Nico, a half- demon. Talk about sizzle!
Overall I think I did a bang up job creating this world. I love the action and the forward momentum in the book. My hope is that my readers will enjoy watching Savvy kick-butt and fall in love. Not to mention figure out the nature of good and evil and whether or not she gets her redemption in the end.
Thank you so much for visiting with me today. Throughout the day I’ll be offering book thongs to those who leave a comment. You might be one of the lucky ones!

Back Cover Blurb:Half-angel Savannah Mantas smells the sulfuric stench of wrath when it enters her city, Iron Point. Resurrected by the archangel Michael, she's hunting for redemption and half-demon Nico Montenegro is her prey. He comes from the Fringes, the border between the city and the toxic wasteland beyond.
When they meet, Nico tells her a story, one of genocide and confiscated bodies. Not revenge, but justice is his purpose and his target is the most admired family in the world-Commander Hathaway and his daughter.
Hathaway's soldiers are slaughtering Fringers and secretly feeding them to Revenants, mutants who survived the bio-bombing of 2120. They have a twisted idea they can train these clever creatures like dogs and keep them out of the city long enough to mobilize an evacuation for the wealthy and well-connected.
Savannah knows better. Revenants are what killed her. When they attack, the last of humankind may be wiped out completely. Stopping Hathaway might just be enough to gain her redemption and escape a hellish fate.
