In "casting" actors to play my hero and heroine in Chosen By Sin, there has only ever been one actor I've envisioned as Para-Ops team member and werebeast Dex. Ever since he appeared in that Terminator movie, Sam Worthington has struck me as sexy and manly and…well…HOT! You can imagine how excited I was when I found a cover model for the book cover who bears a striking resemblance to Sam (with short hair). Jes, my vampire heroine, was a little more difficult to cast. But when I think of quietly elegant and elegantly intense, I think of Jennifer Connelly.


Secondary characters:

Genre: Paranormal
Length: 254 pages
Publisher: CreatSpace (January 1,2012)

The longest life isn't always the happiest one…

Five years after the Second Civil War ends, humans and Otherborn--humanlike creatures with superhuman DNA--still struggle for peace. To ensure the continued rights of both, the FBI forms a Para-Ops team with a unique set of skills.

For now, werebeast Dex Hunt serves on the Para-Ops team, but his true purpose is to kill the werewolf leader he blames for his mother's death. Biding his time, Dex keeps his emotional distance from his team members and anyone else he might care for, including a mysterious vampire he met in L.A.

As a doctor, vampire Jesmina Martin has dedicated her immortal life to healing others. As a scientific researcher, she's trying to prolong life spans, in particular those of her adoptive dragon-shifter family and the werewolf who saved her as a child. Her greatest hope lies with Dex, a werebeast she believes can gift immortality to others.

Only Dex knows nothing about his gift or the fact Jesmina wants to harness it. After a passionate night together neither expects to see the other again. Weeks later, they are reunited in France and forced to acknowledge a fragile miracle--a new life struggling to survive. At the same time, they must stop a group of rebel shape-shifters hoping to unleash every demon in hell. But before Dex and Jesmina can save their child or the world, they must relinquish their secrets, face their fears, and open themselves to love.
