Following in her father’s footsteps, Evie Bodham spends most of her time in the lab at the University of Chicago, trying to decipher an encrypted codex inside a rare crystal. That is until her life is threatened outside a local bar on a rare night out. The last thing she expects to find is a mysterious bodyguard keeping a close eye on her. It isn’t long before she learns that all she thought she knew about the world around her is nothing but an illusion.
Loud-mouthed and unorthodox by the League of Guardians’ standards, resident bad boy Roc has no problem telling any of the others where they can shove their opinions. He delights in the easy life, killing demons for fun and bedding a new female every night. Then she happened. From the moment he lays eyes on Evie, the sable-haired begins to consume his every waking thought. When a moment of passion takes him beyond the job, Roc unknowingly sets events in motion that could change everything.
With the clock counting down, Evie faces her toughest decision. Should she give in to her heart’s desires and fall for the man all-wrong for her, or carry on with the work left behind by her father? Will she survive either choice? Only God knows, and the big guy’s not saying

Quick Q & A:
- Why did you decide to start writing?
I’ve been writing since I was a child, but decided to my passion and turn it into a career roughly six years ago. I guess you could say I’ve had an overactive imagination and needed a good outlet for it, before I injured myself climbing more mountains!
- Do you think authors can succeed in multiple genres or should they stick with a single genre?
It really all depends on the author. Some are capable of it; others find their stride within a specific genre and flourish. Me personally, I’m finding a few genres that I really love to write, and seem to do so well, so I’ll keep at it as long as I have readers interested in reading my books.
- What do you feel is the biggest reward to you with writing?
The connection I feel to each and every story I pen. Well and the idea that others may enjoy the worlds and characters I create. I will say, while at a convention last April, I had the distinct pleasure of meeting a fan who was the first to fangirl me. It truly was an amazing moment for me as an author.
- Who are some of your favorite authors & why?
Oh there’s a bunch to be honest. Steven King, as a horror fan, the man is my idle. J R Ward, with her evocative storytelling and scene descriptions, one cannot help but to fall in love with her books. Lara Adrian, Larrisa Ione, and Shayla Black who, truth be told gave me the best advice when I first started out on this writing journey professionally, and I’m eternally grateful to her for it.… what can I say? They write the steamy fun stuff I can’t get enough of. And just a little FYI, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a few of these ladies, and they are truly phenomenal women.
- What are the biggest hurdles to overcome as an author?
Timing. Seems there’s never enough time to get out everything you want to write on any particular day, and finding time when your family life is swirling all around you.
- Is there any advice that you can offer for new writers?
Writing is an emotional and tumultuous journey. Just when you want to give up, ask yourself why? 9 times out of 10 it’s because YOU don’t believe in yourself. Take that negative thinking and stuff it in a closet until you’ve finish your story. Personally, I left mine locked in a box, buried deep in the mountains long ago. If you don’t believe in yourself and your abilities, don’t hesitate to ask for help, and be willing to accept help and helpful critiquing when necessary.
- Tell us a few random personal things about yourself personal & professional!
Oh well I’m a world class singer, but only in the shower, I’ve hiked well over a few thousand miles in the last five years from coast to coast. I love collecting wine and rarely pass up a nice cigar. As I write this, my cat is staring at me, a bit perturb that I kicked her out of the chair. If an animal can give you a hairy eye, it’s this feline. Professionally, I will be attending Romance Times convention in 2016, and I look forward to meeting other authors as well as new friends and fans. I have won multiple awards for Darkest Before Dawn and They All Fall Down, which I’m pretty excited and humbled by. I’m currently working on the fourth book in the League Of Guardians Series, as well as Reaper’s Revenge, the follow up to They All Fall Down. So, in short, 2017 is looking to be fairly busy in the Vixion household between these two books and the YA trilogy I have been keeping under wraps for some time now.
