Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words is happy to have April Kelley here today to talk about her latest release Ashley and the series Demon Elite. Welcome, April.
Demon Elite is not a Paranormal Romance series
That’s right. The Demon Elite series doesn’t have one shred of a paranormal element in it. Don’t get me wrong. I love paranormal romance. It’s my favorite sub-genre as a matter of fact. It’s just that Demon Elite is not in that category, even though it sounds like it might fit in there.
The only way it does is that the main characters fight like Demons. You see, Demon Elite is a team of assassins. Mostly, they take out the criminals in the sex trafficking industry. They all feel very strongly about what they do and the goal they’d like to achieve, which is to stop sex slavery and trafficking completely. They used to work for a secret government agency, but had to leave when they learned their leader was also selling human beings to the highest bidder. Now they are independent contractors on a mission to stop they’re ex-boss.
The Demon Elite team works very closely with the Newell Brothers. If you’ve read Lakehouse Security, then you’ll recognize that last name from those books. Both teams are currently living and working in the lakehouse mansion so the Lakehouse Security boys visit the Demon Elite stories from time to time.
While I was writing Locke’s Love (Lakehouse Security #4), I needed a name for Locke’s team. My son, who loves video games (he’s a teenager) said something about a person having DeMon13 as a gamer tag in some shoot’em up video game. So that had to creative juices flowing long enough for me to come up with the rest on my own.
Thank you DeMon13, whoever you are.
So, yes it’s a contemporary romance series about a group of assassins. For those that love paranormal, though, I get it completely. I love shifters and vampires as much as you do. I even have a paranormal series available. It’s sold everywhere books are. But I just have one question: have you tried an assassin?
Saving Iain means finding a small bit of redemption, but what Ash gets instead is so much more.
Ashley Wilkins has done some bad things, torturing people until they give him the information he wants, but all that was in his past. Making amends for all those wrongdoings will never happen. He knows that, but that doesn’t stop him from trying, which is why he takes a break from interrogation to save Iain Liron’s life. Iain is a recovering drug addict who understands all too well what finding forgiveness means. Can he make Ash see that he’s more than just his past sins?
